A Winner, A Tree Skirt, and Instagram

It’s Monday morning! That means two things. First of all, we must annouce our first Holiday Craft Bash winner. Second, our first Tree Skirt tutorial of the week is up from Jessica of A Little Gray.

But first things first! Our winner of the felt bundle and Perle cottons from Sewn Studio is kaela_iam with the Kraken Stocking! Congratulations to you! I will be sending you a Flickr message to get your address so we can get that bundle mailed out to you!

Now you must go check out Jessica’s tutorial! She has made the cutest tree skirt that is her take Buddy the Elf’s journey from the North Pole as he travelled “through the seven layers of the Candy Cane Forest, past the Sea of Swirly, Twirly Gumdrops, and through the Lincoln Tunnel.”

And I just wanted to let you know that I’m on Instragram now. I was totally good with my phone with the slide-open keyboard, but Justin’s job required him to have a smartphone, so we both got free iPhones. So yeah. I’ve been posting progress shots of some of my work, and since I’m not great about the whole Facebook thing, I thought you might want to follow me on Instragram. My name on there is thefooshe.

That’s all for today, folks! (Okay now I’m trying to keep myself from typing out Porky Pig’s closing noises.) Nope. Didn’t work. Eep a deep a deep deep. :D
