    That looks amazing!

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Thomas Thank you, Tom!
    I truly am excited for her to see it. I like it much better than the small squirrel basket I made a few years ago (seen down towards the bottom of my website: https://www.voicesinheaven.com/baskets---pg-2)
    They both are so similar in size, but hers just is "neater."😁
    Thanks again

  • Thomas's avatar

    I’m sure she will love it

  • Lisa's avatar

    @John Thank you, John!
    It is my favorite small basket I think😇

    Beautiful!

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Gobbler I really appreciate that, Rick! It is starting to cause pain......so I can't work on them every night now. I do absolutely love the smell of the needles though...and knowing they came from MT puts a small smile on my face.

    @Lisa shame on you. You're gonna make me order another one. 😁 That is an awesome job on a beautiful piece. I still owe you a pic too... I've been MIA for a bit, but still here for my friends!!!

  • Lisa's avatar

    @T.J. Yea, we've noticed you've been missing. And yes, young man, lol, you need to get a photo for me. 😁
    I had some left over beads that I used on your basket and used them in hers. It was hard to give it to her (to a degree🤣)

  • Lisa's avatar

    @T.J. OH, sorry... thank you for the kind words, too 😇

  • Ferg's avatar

    Looks great, so does the T. That was a fantastic idea 😎

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Ferg Thanks!
    I had asked Brad several months before the Send it SLAM if I there were any legal issues with me getting it made up. He said, "go for it."
    Let me snap a photo of it real quick

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Ferg I actually wasn't happy with how it turned out. I wanted it to blend in, not look like that rectangle image. 🤷‍♀️ Guess I'm too picky. But I bought it and didn't have them make me anymore (was going to get about 2 made up)

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Lisa I just made the number up😉

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Ferg I honestly think members would love this. Of course someone I know said, "It's awfully vain of you!"
    🙄🙄🙄
    I said, "Noooooo, I have this shirt in hopes if I'm ever out and someone from the community sees it, they may say something."
    The thought also crossed my mind that if I go to a SEND it SLAM, no one would have to wonder, "is that Lisa?"
    Anyway, thanks...I too clearly thought it was a neat idea. 😜

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Lisa it is. Whoever thought it was vain need stheor head checked.
    Or more points haha. I do remember going through a points frenzy in the beginning 🤣

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Ferg Well, you and I determined awhile back he should have his head checked!😆
    Yea, the point system I know is a favorite with people and I get the premise behind it....but, lol, I think it's stupid. I don't need motivation to come here, post, or support folks. Ya know. But no one asks my opinion on anything 🤣😅🤣😜😉😉

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Lisa 🤣🤣🤣

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Lisa it's good fun when your chasing them eh. A wee extra.
    Its been so long since I've chased them I don't think about them anymore, haven't for years.
    But o still enjoy adding a little now n then

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Lisa still, the T is a great idea. Very unique.
    Smart thinking 😎

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Ferg Thank you, Awesomeness!
    🤜🏼🤛🏼 Let's start a tshirt business together!😄😉🙃
    I have been looking at other jobs while waiting on the one I "believe" I really want. But just teasing about a tshirt business. I DO wear a lot of tshirta though. My favorite is this one👇🏼😁

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Lisa that's got some memories to it eh haha

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Ferg It does! I loveeeeee the show!! I watch it probably 5-8 times a week. Yep! If only I could find them in reality and be part of their world!😆 I'm pretty sure I'd try to marry Hoss or Ben! 🤣😂🤣 (I laugh at my GIF)

  • Ferg's avatar

    @Lisa 🤣🤣🤣 hey, its good to dream eh

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Ferg ☝🏻 🤣😂

    When my dreams are better than reality......🙈🙉🙊😆

  • Ferg's avatar
