iron craft challenge #5: be mine

well. this week's challenge was to make something to give someone for valentine's day. with which i have absolutely no issue; i'm not a terribly sentimental kind of gal, but hand-crafting something to present to a loved one on a lovey holiday? i can do that.

but i can't post it up here and on flickr today and still keep it a surprise for feb 14.


i decided to make something for someone(s) who won't be checking up here. or, honestly, care that they received their gifts a few weeks early.

CAT TOYS!* (remember these?)
