Super Secret Baby Shower Planning

It's probably not the wisest of ideas to post a surprise creation on the worldwide web, but I couldn't help myself. Below is the development of ideas for our friends, Matt & Jen's baby shower. Fortunately, they don't know about this here blog - so I think I'm safe.

The Invitation is the first photo. It's a textile art creation incorporating a background of sand. The shower details will be printed in the blue wavy "water."

And as their gift, I'm designing a textile art relief. The beginning characters for the relief are below. The nursery is to be done in happy crabs, funny fish, and other sea world wonders. I hope that what I have in my mind lends itself to the final product.

Above, are the sun, happy crab and silly little bird. It's going to be an ocean scene, with several more textile characters.

Back Tack Reveal!

(photos of the finished product)
(main blog, description of the goodies on June 30).

My backtack package has arrived with some super fun stuff! I wouldn't take better photos than the creator, so please visit the links above!

Thanks Caro, of Splityarn! Kenzie has already began toting around the wee bag made just for her. And she nearly hyperventilated with monkey sounds when I opened the package. You've spoiled me, and your craftsmanship makes me drool with envy! Very creative, fantabulous work, and a generous supply of goodies -- this has been such a fun experience!

I must admit, I've wandered across your blog on several occasions and have always enjoyed your creations. Your creativity is apparently endless....

Thanks again!! I'll think kind thoughts of you each and every time I use it! ~S
