"It's a Holly day!"

Look closely in the background of this photograph, and you will see evidence of the many parties that are celebrated by the characters of my craft room. Apparently they have decided it's not necessary at all to be tucked away until their own celebratory month appears upon the calendar. It seems for them that every day is a holiday, but today is extra special as it is a Holly day!

I can only begin to tell you how happy I am to have found my crafting sister at heart in Holly of Cotton Pickin Fun. Someone who loves holidays as much as I do, and someone who loves to craft in felt. EAK! How lucky am I to be the recipient of this adorable Leprechaun and his sidekick companion.

Holly says she has loved very small things since she was a little girl. We are all glad for this as she has created and shared with us the most wonderful patterns of tiny little characters to make. These Tweethearts do melt my heart!

If it is impossible for me to put away the things I make for each holiday as it comes, it is doubly so for the Cute as Can Be characters made from Holly's patterns. Look again in the background to see her Valentine's Day Shakers right where I can catch sight of them from where I sit.

 A smile I can be sure of each time I visit her sweet blog. How absolutely clever is the Shamrock Shaker pattern she has created wearing his very lucky hat. The Easter shaker is made from Holly's Snowman Shaker pattern with ears from my own rabbit pattern added. I know, we are becoming symbiotic! Where there is one of us, you will find the other cheering her on.

"Hello! My name is Elizabeth. I love to craft with felt and I love Holly days!"

Thank you for loving my lamby! I will probably never be good at felty characters...but it is so much fun to see what you and Holly come up with. I would love to see all your characters in your craft room. =D

I've decided that some of my favorite holiday decorations and creations made by dear friends (that's YOU) are worthy of staying up year-round in my craft room. You and Holly are definitely are cut from the same mold. Absolutely darling!

Those are so cute. I can't wait to go meet Holly. I love that you leave out your holiday cuties. I would too, only I'm so short on space, I have to rotate.

Holly said...

Oh Elizabeth! Your post makes my heart smile. Such joy in knowing that I ,too, have a sister crafter that loves to craft as much as I do! Without this wonderful internet we might never have met. You inspire me to no end! Thank you so much!
I love the bunny shaker! How clever to turn the snowman pattern into the Easter bunny!! I love your Shamrock and the saying on his derby hat. That is one of my favorite sayings, the kids tease me during March because I say that all the time!
Your tweethearts are adorable! And I am so glad that you liked the leprechaun and Scotty dog. I have been wanting to make you a Scotty for a while b/c I know how much you love them:)
How fun to leave the Holiday characters out year round-love the Valentine shakers keeping tabs on all the other characters. So sweet!
Have a wonderful, crafty day, Holly
ps I see you are lucky at finding four leafers and cleverly used them on the Shamrock Shaker!
