I'm showing but not telling!

I had so much fun working on my Secret Sister's last giftie from me!
I'm going to show the gift but not tell who my ss is, lol. Not even a tiny hint, lol.
I had a vintage tea tin that I've had for years so I thought I would put it to good

I had a fun cqing the thimble!
I hope my secret sister likes her gift, I thought about her with every tiny
I'll be popping it in the mail to her tomorrow.

A little teaser for my Secret Sister.

For the past five months I've had a Secret Sister and this month is the last month to send something to her. I found a Christmas image I wanted to use of a cute little girl with some birds but I didn't want it to be Christmas since I wanted this to be a year round gift. Here it is as the Christmas image.

I fiddled around in Photoshop Elements 6 over the weekend and came up with this.
So the lady who gets this image on an item I'm making for her will know that it is me who has been her Secret Sister for the last 6 months, lol. A little teaser for you!

Going back to the 70's for 2009.

My daughter bought me an Angel Hair Spider plant for Christmas. It's different from the usual spider plant because the leaves kind of curl giving it a fuller look.
I wanted to hang the plant in the corner of my living room but I didn't have a plant hanger. In the 70's I used to macrame plant hangers so I thought I would make one. I haven't made one for like 25 years, when I sat down to make it I had a big blank and just stared at the cording not know how in the world to start. When I made them in my 20's I could make them with my eyes closed, lol, so I was really frustrated! I saw some on line already made for as low as $5.99 but I refused to buy one even if they were giving them away for free! I can make these I just know everything will come back to me! I typed in macrame plant hanger instructions and read it over and yessssss, it all came back. So on January 1st, 2009 I revisited the 70's and made this plant hanger. I wanted the knots loose to look lacy. I think it came out pretty good!

Now I just need to figure out what to do with the pot, get a new
one or cover this one?
