here's a birthday card for my dad. if i was filthy rich i would have bought him one of the bikes we fell in love with in Holland. but i'm not so he just got a gift card so he could buy himself a cool saddlebag.

so i haven't posted anything in a while because i've been in europe. but here's something i made while i was there.
i stayed with this family for a while in the netherlands, and this little boy let me sleep in his room, so i made him this little fortune teller out of felt. the fortunes inside are love, peace, health and happiness, and they're embroidered in corresponding colors. i was worried that he wouldn't understand what the words meant, because he only speaks a few words of english, but he understood pretty well. he gave me a big, beautiful "thank you" and a big smile when i gave it to him. his mom said to me later that he said it was the prettiest present he's ever gotten! okay, enough bragging.
