A creative sister

Last December I went to the Ivory Coast in Africa with my whole family to visit. It was so nice to see my family again after a while, and it was the first time my children were meeting their aunties and uncles. Needless to say it was a very fulfilling trip! So before returning, my older sister gifted me with this beautifully crossed-stitched Advent calendar. I just loved it as soon as I saw it. I think she did a beautiful job. It takes a lot of patience to do this can of work. My sister has been very creative, for as long as I can remember. I know, I've always try doing whatever craft activity she was doing. This is how I started doing crochet at a young age. I tried cross-stitching later on, but drop it really quickly lol... Anyway, here are a few pictures of the canvas she gave me. I intend to frame it and put in somewhere in my house. So, do you creative or crafty siblings? What kind of talent do they have?

  First picture taken above. 
The canvas was a little wrinkled, so I ironed it a little bit and took more pictures. Below!


  1. That is awesome and what a treasure for you and for your family from a family member that they just met and don't get to see very often

    1. Absolutely Pam! This is something I will treasure for a long time.

  2. very pretty. I live 5 states away from most of my is all that way on the other side of the country.
