yellow split peas

Today I made a frog :: He's a big fat heavy frog, weighing 500g :: perfect door stop material!
he is made from jumbo chunky blue/green corduroy
with crazy needle point cord underneath!

I also finished off the thank-you cards I have been making to slip in with any orders I send out. I used double sided card/heavy papers which are meant for scrapbooking :: I folded over one end which I trimmed with pinking shears and I have left plenty of space for a hand written message.
I love receiving parcels from ebay or etsy but i always feel disappointed if there is no message, it's like the message makes the parcel last for longer...especially when there is a note, a business card AND a moo card !! It always makes the parcel feel a little bit more special to me, so from now on I aim to keep myself (and my packing cupboard) well stocked with parcel additions.
I'm off to order some moo cards...

your parcels always look great, they are the best wrapped parcels in the world (I think). OOOH, I ordered some felt the other day, does that mean I'll get a fancy new thank you note?!

What a great idea for the frog...I have a pattern from Purl for a frog like that, I made one for my friends' baby, and another friend of mine wants a doorstop for her little boy....so I'm thinking frog pattern is coming out again!
That patterned cord looks like an old Libertys one, is it? (please tell me I'm not a geek and I'm totally wrong, please!!!!!)

lovely frog- reminds me of a beautiful purple velvet one I had when I was little- was stuffed with lentils and I used to sniff it for hours! (possibly too much info!)I love your blog, and will definitely be back!

I just love receiving your parcels...keep up with all the added loveliness! I've even got my own moo cards - I just had to have some! I also got some stickers for a stocking filler for No.2.

MOO !!!!! I just got an email saying my very own Moo cards had been despatched today .... Hooray - I just can't wait to get them :o) Sarah xx
PS. I'm sure I used to have a beany frog just like that when I was younger.

I love reading your blog, always makes me feel inspired don't know how you find the time to make all the things you make, all the wrappings and stationary too.
I am so bad at being organised.
I make felt hair accessories and xmas decorations.
I LOVE YOUR FROG. x
