I'll start at the top left and go clockwise:
- Button "bouquet" - can you say adorable! And how original - I've never seen anything quite like it before, and that's saying a lot with all the button art that's floating around. I made it a home in a little cut glass jelly jar I had on a shelf.
- Baker's twine - There's an assortment of colors in there. I've pinned several projects using baker's twine - I know some of this will get used as part of Arden's birthday party decor next month.
- 100% wool felt - Ellen is big into felt, and this is nice stuff - some feels like cashmere wool to me. I've only dipped my toe into the world of felt, but I have at least two projects already percolating to use some of these pretties! Keep an eye out, 'cuz one should be done like tomorrow!
- Felted wool cupcake pincushion - Even my stingy-with-the-compliments husband said he liked this cute little pincushion. I love it too, and I have to admit that my pins are in the little plastic box they came in, so this will definitely be useful.
- Key wristlet - always handy, and this one's cute to boot! I'm thinking for when I walk Laser & Sophie.
- Map embellished sticky note holder - When I work on projects that I'm thinking will become tutorials, I scratch down dimensions and notes on whatever paper I can find. Now I can find a note when I need it!
- Fold over elastic (FOE) from Pick Your Plum - I've seen some cool projects with FOE, and I know you can use it to make underwear - maybe I'll try my hand at that? I am running out of places to find cute underwear in Arden's size to give as rewards for her staying dry all day... I also think it looks cute as binding on t-shirts, of which I'm planning to make more.
- Crocheted clippies - I think Ellen might have been checking out my pins for these. I used to know how to crochet, but I have looooong ago forgotten and kept finding cute crochet projects like these. Now I can move "re-learn to crochet" way down on my list of things to do.
