prettiest miniswap ever & a giveaway

Casa tumblingblocks received its miniswap from casa honeyflake! Where to start? How about the box it all came in? It's painted by a little girl who really loves to paint in what happens to be my favorite shade of blue. Beebs tore into it quickly and then slowly and methodically lifted everything out. The softie got big snuggles and the tiny woolly people got a tiny special home. Each individual shell and piece of seaglass got fingered and rubbed and categorized. The little buttons got enthusiastically added to a button collection, and all the little letters got read with the gentle enthusiasm of an older child excited to see the learning of another one. ("oh, look, she can write my name!")

I can't get over the tiny felt work and the clever fill-in-the-face collage kiddo. Kristin also included a sack backpack, appropriate, I think, for a few nature hikes of our own. Thanks so much, Kristin!

Miniswap has been such a great experience and I've been generally feeling the love lately, so I'm going to do a little giveaway. I loved these fabrics so much that I would have been excited to get even a little piece of them. Maybe you feel the same way? If you do, leave a comment below and on Sunday night at 9:00 CST I will pull 5 people to get one 6x6 square of each color.

I love that fabric. It reminds me of 4th grade. I had the best teacher of my entire school experience that year. Boy, he really made us practice the cursive!!
