Hip Hop Extravaganza!



What a rush to be involved in such a colossal event...

If you are visiting my blog because that's what you do on a daily basis (namely my mom and sisters...)
Check out the marathon Hip-Hop-A-Blog-Hop I am part of today, by starting at Unity's blog and following the links... all along the way there are opportunities to win stuff when you make comments AND you get to see amazing, inspiring, creative projects that people are doing with Unity Stamps, which is a company my sister-in-law, Tanis, has done some designs for (YAY TANIS!!!)

Here is my latest crafty craft that I made using Unity's "dream tree"


I made it for my brother's girlfriend, Andi. We participate in a monthly crafty swap between the "sisters" in my family. I stamped the image onto my scrap material and embroidered (in my amateur fashion) and then used it as a "patch" on a small pillow that I made. It fit for this hop as a Unity project and for our sister swap theme... Peaceful Spring. It was fun to use my stamps in a unique way also... I love the dream tree image!



Now you can skip on over to see Eva at the next blog on your journey... and what a journey it is!
and I leave you with this little quote...

"Little by little, one travels far."
-J. R. R. Tolkien
