Do YOU know what a Pin Keep is? Just a pin cushion you say...JUST a pin cushion???!!!
Well, obviously you need to be educated so let me help you.
Wendy over at Ravenwood Whimzies had a Pin Keep Swap. I didn't know much about them nor had I ever made one so I thought, "What better way to learn, right?" Exactly right!
Long story short, my swap partner and I were teamed up with yet a third member, a triangle of sorts, and we emailed each other over a month's time.
I got mine yesterday!
This is THE MOST ADORABLE pin keep I've ever seen!! And it was made...just for me...by Mary of Marmmies Mammys and More
Mary knows how much I LOVE Raggedy dolls!!!!
Look at the little woodland creatures! Even my husband loved this!!
But she didn't stop there....oh, no...she went a step further and gave me this....
A RAGGEDY DOLLIE!!!! Be still my heart!!! She's SOOOOOO cute!!
And she also gave me some beautiful place mats for my table...
Everything is just wonderful!!
Now how sweet is she? SAWEEEEEETTTTTT!!!!! Go over to her blog HERE and meet her! She sells her beauties, too!
Now, I have to tell you about the Pin Keep I made Kathy 'cause Kathy isn't well right now. To say she has an ouchie would be an understatement but you can go HERE and meet her as she needs some followers on her magical blog! Wish her well while you're at it...she'd like that!
I made Kathy a Pin Keep. Never made one before so this is my first one. I 'studied' her, so to speak just like Mary 'studied' me. Kathy loves fairies and all manner of winged creatures so I came up with this design...
I didn't make the fairy but found her in my favorite material store.
I wanted a scene...so funny that Mary did the same thing and she's never seen mine!!
The Pin Keep had to be on a pedestal of some sort so I made mine on a small block of wood. You know me and wood!!!
So, whadayathink? Will it do? Well, if you'd read her thank you to me you would know that she truly loved it! AND that made me a happy person. What was it Mary said to me after I'd emailed her that I'd received her Pin Keep and was so very happy with it? Oh, that she could now breathe!!! LOL!!! Poor Mary, that USPS delivery must've taken it's time...and you sent it Priority!!!!!!
Go over to Wendy's and you can view all of the Pin Keeps that everyone has made! (Wendy has some gorgeous creations of her own that she sells, too, so take a peek while you're there!)
Mary's linked a picture of my Pin Keep and you can see the one that Kathy made Mary....CUTE!!
I'm going to link mine up for Kathy since her meds have her 'out of it'!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
