7 Days of Loot, Glorious Loot - Day 4

Today is the beginning of a four day weekend for me. I am so excited. 4 glorious days of time to catch up on things around the house, be creative, cook nice meals, and hopefully, maybe, if I'm extra good, get the shop updated for the first time in months. So in fitting with where my head is at I have an extra special swap to show you today.

At the Stitches and Craft Show in March I was so excited to finally meet Jodie at
Ric-Rac. I've had a blog crush on her for ages, even more so after the dress. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting blog royalty but Jodie is an incredibly warm and welcoming woman. She's one of those people that you instantly feel comfortable around.

During the 5 days of the show I often sidled past her stall, eying off the monsters, picking them up and fondling them and thinking about making a purchase. I didn't and I regretted my decision. So I plucked up my courage, asked her if she'd like to do a swap and this monster is now mine.


At the start of a four day weekend I think my monster says it all. Thanks Jodie for the wonderful studio friend.

    You should take him to work and sit him on your desk to see what sort of reaction you get.

  13. My Ric-Rac monster girl was calling to me at the Stitches and Craft Show.
    When I unzipped her mouth I realized she was French.She said "Je t'amie"
    I bought her immediately.
