I'd like to introduce you to a brilliant new artist!

Nomi.


My 5 year old granddaughter is one of my great helpers!  She will drop anything for some art time, for a new craft, or just some drawing time on her own.  As you can imagine, we have much in common.  So a few weeks ago, while visiting with Nomi, her brother Ruben, and their parents, I had a big stash of threads with me to wind and prepare gift grab bags that I like to slip inside your order boxes.  I wind the threads and then put them together in color groups, whatever strikes my fancy. There was Nomi, and I thought: I'll have my helper work with me!  I explained the task and with much excitement she embarked on her journey.  I asked her to write down what each combination she pulled reminded her of, what it make her think of.  She loves sounding out words and I gave her little bits of paper to write the thoughts on.  Here are her combinations and thoughts:
I'm pretty sure you don't need me to read these to you, but just in case: AKA flowers

Beautiful, of course

Apples, (who needs that second "p" anyway??)

Grass
But the one I will share with you now is the one that blew my mind.  This is the one that made me realize that we have a brilliant artist on hand!!

Frustrated.


and that, in a nutshell, is our Nomi.

These are too yummy!

I've always been a huge fan of a good pair of embroidery scissors.  Since they are usually petite there is something inherently sweet about them.  But when I came across these babies, I melted!

TA DA!  Brand new in my shop...  the cutest sweetest, and yet sharpest embroidery scissors!


These babies are super affordable, only $11.  And they always look their best with one of our beautiful scissor FOBs.  Check out that collection HERE!
