I made a funny little plush cupcake out of wool felt, and decided to give him a pair of glasses as well. Being that my partner also collects yellow hardback Nancy Drew books, I had to enclose a note written on my spiffy stationery from Fred Flare, too. If I'd thought ahead I would have gone out to get a bakery box to pack him in, but instead I just wrapped him in soft tissue with a tag and sent him on his merry way. I've been sidetracked for over a week now with a minor wrist injury, so it was nice to ease back into the crafting with this project.
In other news, I can't tell you how excited I am by our little children's lit swap group. I just posted A Little House Christmas swap, in which participants send stockings filled with Laura-inspired gifts to their partners. You've probably noticed that I'm crazy about Laura Ingalls Wilder, so I can't wait to get started on this one. Sometimes I have the sneaking suspicion that I might have started this group just so I could get *exactly* the kind of present I really wanted for myself.
