This miniature Beadlady Cafe wall art made of polymer clay was a gift from my student, and now friend, Bang Hasegawa aka andeverythingnice. Look at those details. I love this gift to bits! It matches my shop details perfectly: the pretty red door, the checker board floor, even the blue and white stripes! It's sugar and spice and everything nice!
Last year, Bang gifted me with a lovely bird cage peppered with handmade elements. If you've been to my shop, you've probably seen it. It sat on my Yummy Cart for months. I will take a picture for you next time.
Bang is one of the most thoughtful and generous people I know. I met her years ago in a workshop I taught during my early years of teaching. She's been back to attend my classes many times since. That's what I love about teaching - you get to meet kindred souls who share your love for crafting and creating.
I miss my workshops. Can't wait to start teaching again next year!
Meanwhile, drown yourselves in sweetness over at
I hope to post more about gifts from my crafty friends next time. Stay tuned!
