I recently received the most wonderful grab bag of San-Man designs!  I immediately started and finished three of the many in my pkg.  The tuckaway came with the chart You Are Music to My Heart.  The adorable orange flip-flops (I still want to call them THONGS  LOL LOL) came with that chart and the teeny tiny silver/green tree charm came with the Merry & Bright design.  These were soooo much fun to xs!  The two frames are from my “little” frame stash 🙂  I still have many more S-M charts to do 🙂  Thanks for looking 🙂
