...it's time for Noel Edmonds' Multi-Coloured Swap Shop!!!
What am I on about, exactly? Well - trades, actually. Personally, I've never before taken part in one. Until now. And look what I got!!
The delightful 'Let It Snow' polar bear artwork packed full of gorgeousness is by mimilove forever. When I first saw her work last year, I was intrigued by the way that she paints beautiful images of animals in watercolour on canvas, and then goes one step further and embellishes each one with stitchery, sequins and beads. I was hooked. And now look....he's mine!! In reality, in my hands, on my wall, he is simply amazing. We are all in love with him. He is perfection.
Karen (mimilove) gave me a completely free reign to make her anything at all (well, ok, maybe a brooch, she decided). I panicked a bit. Mr Bear arrived very quickly (I wish I'd photographed him in his wrapping - it was such an expert job. A work of art in itself!). What if Karen didn't like what I made for her...? What if she was...disappointed...??
Especially as I was so thrilled with Mr Bear.
Eeek!! Anyhow, I threw myself into a mass of colours and got on with it. Took a deep breath and posted off my fabric jewels. And I think she likes them!! I still think that I got the best deal...thanks, Karen xx It made my week!
