First of all, congratulations to Jessica and Vickie, who won yesterday's giveaway! Email me with your top choice and your address!
Today's giveaway.......has a bit of a backstory...but first the essentials! This is a coin purse in the shape of an elephant (hopefully that's obvious...). It is about 4 inches high and 5 inches wide. To win, leave me a comment! The backstory....As a teacher, I have learned a bit about various learning styles and have discovered that I am primarily a tactile learner - meaning that I learn best by touch. This is why I touch things in stores. I can identify fabric by touch better than by sight, and I touch even things in grocery stores, which is why my friends hate shopping with me sometimes. After dinner I shred my napkin if I am sitting around talking, and I regularly tear labels off of bottles...again, usually while talking. That being said, I doodle a LOT, especially during church. I have a very hard time sitting and listening without my hands being active and if that is the case, it is almost a certainty that I am NOT LISTENING. So in church on Sunday, an idea that had been vaguely floating around made it onto the back of the bulletin and this elephant is what came out. It is not exactly what I want, but it is still cute. I will confess that I made the trunk too long and it took me three hours to turn the trunk right side out (it's only half an inch wide). Hope you like it!!
