Something new.......and something tiny

 I usually only order books and embroidery kits from my own well known websites that I can trust.  But this time, I took the chance and followed a link that was on Pinterest.  I love Pinterest .....it is so inspiring. 

Isn't this sweet?  I had trouble tracing the words onto 
the thick felt....so I hand wrote them myself..........and it looks wonky......but for me,
it's okay.  
It is a mini candle mat.  It is probably meant for giving to someone
for their birthday......but since I make celebratory birthday dinners
for my family and friends........I will keep it and use it for a centerpiece
for the birthday dinner table. 
The company for this is called Bareroots.com.  She had many lovely kits,
some embroidery kits as well.  The kit arrived quickly and packaged so well. The pattern
instructions are easy to follow and the quality of the materials are excellent.
I did not tell anyone from the company that I was posting about them here........but I am sure they wont mind. I am glad I gave this company a try.
Currently, I am working on a project in which I need 
very tiny sweet treats for.......which I made from polymer clay.  I will show
you more of this as time progresses.
So tell me........do you order kits or books from only one source......or do you take a leap
of faith and try someone new now and then? 
I would love to hear!  
Here's wishing you many creative and inspiring moments!
