hippo palace

One of the {many} highlights of my weekend in California teaching at Kim's event was being the swap partner of sweet Jenny Morgan. I'm not going to show you pictures of what I made shabby and not in the least chic. Really. I'm sure you think I'm being modest but believe me, it was not up to par. Besides, I didn't take any photos of it.

But just take a gander at what she made for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...

This sweet box was packed full of the most delicious assortment of pink supplies you've ever seen (which all got stashed in my suitcase and are now all over the place, never to be reunited for a photo op again)

When I showed this box to Alfredo, he giggled with delight. And he decided that it needed something...a little inhabitant.

Perfect just made perfect-er.

Hope you all are having a great week. And thanks to everyone who bought stuff from my etsy shop. I'm packaging it up and hope to get them out tomorrow. Thanks so much for your support!
