Happy Day 17: Old Mittens/Old Friends!

Last Autumn I did a couple of projects for Fresh Style magazine's website launch and one of them was this butterfly sweater that I made from a plain cardigan and a single mitten. I only had a couple of days to create/shoot the project and I was heading out of town when they asked, so I was a little panicked, but it worked out great because I was able to shoot it at my dear friend's house (which is gorgeous, aren't you jealous of that sofa??) using one of her adorable daughters as a model.

This is a very special friend, one that I've had since I was about 5 or 6. Her name is Paige! ;O) She is simply one of the loveliest and most beautiful persons on the whole wide world and I absolutely cherish her. I wish I could find the photo I have somewhere of the two of us when we were awkward looking little girls. Well, ok, I was awkward looking...she's always been stunning! And so sweet and warm and generous. The kind of person who leaves you wanting to be a better person. She makes me happy! :o) I'm so grateful to have her as a friend. Thanks, Paige!

You can see the whole project and get the how-to on Fresh Style website. And also check out my other project: a velvet and fern table runner!
Have a happy day! I love you!

P.S. Oh! And I keep forgetting to say that Fresh Style March/April is in stores with more of my kids' crafts, so check it out!!

    1. After I had been eyeing it for a year or two, my husband surprised me with the moose head as an anniversary gift. (He knows me so well! Forget about flowers, give me a moose head.) It came from Zgallerie.

    1. The moose head came from Zgallerie (http://www.zgallerie.com/), and the couch is from Area 51 in Seattle. It's their Reverie Sofa in Lagoon.
