mollie makes care packs
I never went away to school, so I never really got care packs. Other than, you know, the things that were a part of everyday life that showed me how much my parents care about me. That's worth so much...but happy mail care packs carry a certain amount of excitement, ya know?
Well, when Katie sends me my Mollie Makes magazines, she always includes a few little goodies, and it's like getting a care pack! She knows I have a weakness for Percy Pigs, so this package was especially lovely. And how about those fairy cake (cupcake) cases? They actually match the artwork on the mug that I bought in London...amazing!
Amid the fun surprises, I was eager to flip through the issues of Mollie Makes. Because of the way I've set up my subscription, I get them a little late (so Katie gets a chance to check them out too!). Issue 21 came out just before Christmas, and I was anxious to see this:
I was invited to create a new hamster pattern for Mollie Makes readers, and this fluffy teddy bear hamster was what I came up with. He's very much like the hamsters I had growing up...I loved their long fur and they they were always a bit on the slow side. It made them so much more fun to play with and hold.
Thanks to Katie for the treats, and thanks to Mollie Makes for letting me join in your crafty fun along the way!
