Special thanks to Katie Fulford, Natalia Oelofse and Kelly Dauterman for these wonderful swaps, you have made me very happy =)
First swap was with a Canadian friend, Katie Fulford. Katie is very talented needle felting artist and a painter. You will be amazed by the intricate details of her felted critters on her Etsy Shop, I have a few of her critter in my collection and I would highly recommend her if you are considering getting an unique gift for your love ones.
This swap was prefect, I have always wanted a painting by her and she agreed, I was thrilled. I sent her Baby Mocha and look what I have got! Katie is generous! I only asked for one bird painting but she sent me 4! These are all beautifully handpainted with water colours, I am going to frame and hang them on my bedroom =)
