ice cream, instagram swaps, and travel plans
I recently participated in my first handmade project swap on Instagram. Each person made a zippered pencil pouch, and the theme was favorite ice cream flavors!
Susi was one of the organizers of the swap, and she also was the person who made a pouch for me. (I made a pouch for Millie.) My favorite ice cream flavor is New York Cherry, and I'm pretty sure it goes back to when I was little and memories of going out for Chinese food with my grandparents. Anyway, Susi perfectly captured the flavor of the ice cream...and my love of the Statue of Liberty. Pretty sure she didn't even know that about me!
And what's even more perfect is that I'm currently planning a trip to New York City this fall, and the lovely lady liberty is on my list of things to see and do. You can bet that this pouch will be coming with me!
In the meantime, I'm thinking that I need to organized a handmade swap (I did one once before), I've just finished another round of proofing on my book, and I'm nearly finished with a new project to share with you. Just a little more stitching! Busy, busy around here!
