Five golden rings...
I heard The 12 Days of Christmas in my car this morning, while on my way to the post office, shipping off some more Etsy orders. "Five Golden Rings"...hmm, how can I fit the gold into my 12 Swirls of Christmas, I had a few ideas, but once I considered my Swirly Goods, I realized, there's a lot of GOLD in there! So, here are the Golden Stars of the SwirlyBugz collection.
Did you KNOW these fun facts about GOLD?
- gold is edible
- our bodies contain about 0.2 milligrams of gold, most of it in our blood
- the power of an earthquake can turn water into gold
- gold can be found beneath the earth on all seven continents
- Olympic gold medals only consist of only 1.34% gold
My Zoe brings to you...this lovely swirly ornament that she designed and made herself today - especially for this blog. I did enlist help from my SwirlyBugz elves for the 12 Swirls of Christmas this year. And this is what Zoe wanted to do. Zoe is my smart & spunky 8 year old who loves lipstick and playing with dolls. She's so very FUN! :) And I absolutely LOVE her ornament, hitting the Etsy shop in 2018? hmmmm.....perhaps!

I'm sorry. Yes, I've been neglecting my SwirlyBugz lately. Happy to say, that is OVER & I am BACK TODAY! I have A LOT to catch up on. Reasons for my absence... working on the yearbook for my daughter's 5th grade class (WHICH IS AMAZEBALLS), and a broken foot. I have missed my Sbugz terribly, and it's time to get moving! (not quite physically, just yet...but getting there.)
Who am I?
