All Things Pretty Necklace Review

NOTE:  A lot has gone on in our break.  The biggest one to affect this blog is the Mule of  MnN Crafts just recently left to serve an 18 month mission for the {Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints} in Taipei, Taiwan.

Our whole family is really excited & her desire to serve has re-inspired me to start blogging about my crafting endeavors again.  One of the reasons I got into this was the digital ability to share ideas with others who are looking.  So, long story short--- I'm back!

I figure the best way to come back is to write a review for my fabulous new necklace from {All Things Pretty}.

 Danesa, over at ATP  contacted me about a month ago to see if I'd do this review & what kind of jewelry I like.  I gave her an over-complicated task of finding something that I loved.  And she did it.

This is the {Suzanne} Necklace.  It's seriously adorable. (Don't mind my pose & wierdo nature).

I think my favorite part about his necklace is that I can wear it two ways.

I love versatility in jewelry.  And All Thing Pretty is definitely versatile; I know it sounds SUPER corny, but there really is something for everyone.  This is perfect place to find a Mother's Day gift (hint, hint).

Check them out on {Pinterest}, {Facebook}, or on their {website}.  You won't be disappointed; as you can clearly tell my pensive 'yay for my new necklace' pose. 

DISCLAIMER:  I was given this necklace for free to write a review.  These are all my own opinions, yada, yada, yada.  :)

Danesa also has a great blog called {The Pink Senorita}.  You should check that out, as well.

Purple Felt Dragon

I made this little guy a while ago. It was an interesting adventure. My last full on felt plushie was Frank and he had considerably fewer pieces. Like Frank, this plush was made by a pattern that I created while making him. I was a little frustrated by how the head looked at first but I like it now. It gives him that squishy, plush feeling. He is also all hand sewn, no machine here. Some of the pieces that I had to make would have been a struggle with a machine. I also like how his wings turned out and the fact that they need nothing to stay up like they are. Oh, you can kind of tell that the black felt is sparkly but it really is. It's a fun felt.

He's around 6" tall, 5" wide. Made of felt, polyfil, thread, and safety eyes.

Crafted by Mule (Megan).
