One morning a few weeks ago I picked up a surprise package from our local sorting office. It was from Alys over at Gardening Nirvana – she took part in Crafting it Forward read here and I was one of the lucky people to receive a handmade gift from her and as you will see she is one talented gardener and crafter. Apologies to Alys that it has taken me this long to write this post, but you will agree it has been well worth the wait.
The package was beautifully wrapped in tissue and ribbon – almost too nice to unwrap and this is what I found inside.
Ten beautiful handmade cards with pretty matching envelopes
My photos do not do them justice
They are absolutely stunning I feel very honoured to have them
So now it is my turn to make something for 5 people and send it to them by snail mail during 2014. When those 5 people receive my crafted item they must then agree to do the same deal for 5 more on their blog, Facebook or Google+. I have never taken part in anything like this before and at the moment I can’t say what I will be making but it will probably be a handmade Artists Book.
So if you are interested in taking part get ready steady go…I will make something handcrafted for the first five people to leave a comment on this post.
