Fobbie fun

Here's the beaded fobbie I made for my friend Liz Mrofka--inventor of the fobbie as an example of what you could do with beads and a fobbie. A fobbie a clever little card with holes for ribbons that makes wrapping presents a breeze and lots of fun. I had a red one and decided to cover it with green paper--so here is the before and after. Same purple wrapping paper and green ribbon--I just photographed it in different rooms (this was all done on the fly--running out the door photography). I finished beading the poppy months ago, but never made it into a pin--so I finally finished it up this weekend. I forgot to take a photo of the pin by itself, though.

Speaking of running out the door--yesterday I was in such a hurry to make it to a meeting that required dropping Hannah off at day care at precisely 8 am--that I didn't realize that I had dressed, perhaps, a little too quickly.... my friend Ann leaned over, 3 hours into the 4 hour meeting, and said, "Amy--did you know that your blouse is on inside out?"

It kind of defined the day.

HI Amy,

I added your picture of the beautiful heart pin you did attached to a fobbie on my blog. Thanks for your support and good works!
