Artists appreciate art.
Crafters appreciate crafts.
So nothing thrills this artist/crafter's heart as much as giving/receiving handmade-with-love creations!
Like these delicious 'rainforest green' knitted wrist warmers sent from my dear friend Lynn.
(Hi Lynnie.. hiiiiiiii!)
We both eagerly agreed to do a craft exchange and wondered why we hadn't done this sooner (we used to be house mates.. but then I got married, and she up and moved way out West with her man.. Hi Steve, hiiiiii!).
Anywho, she - being the sweetie-pants that she is - also included these funtastic turquoise glazed hand pottered buttons she made (she introduced me to pottery).
Aren't they just cute as a... yes.
She even threw in a crochet turquoise dishcloth too.
I also sent her a bunch of my hand crafted lil' goodies. Fun fun.
That same day I got a sweet letter from my blogger bud - Nicole.
While this delightful bunting behind me (from pages of this book ) was part of a BIG Christmas parcel from my Australian e-mail pen/pal (Hi Gayna.. hiiiiii!).
Fun mail is awesome.
I love it, don't you?
So I figured it's about time I share the love again... but only if you pay it forward too! ;o)
So here's the scoop:
First 5 comments here get a pretty lil' surprise handmade from me.. it may be a piece of jewellery, or art, or other crafty goodness I create for you.
It will flit flutter and fly over to your mailbox sometime in the following few months!
(Note: if you comment, leave an e-mail that I can reach you at for mailing info... if you leave your blog address my 'filter' will hold you message until I check it.. so don't worry if it doesn't appear right away.. I'll know you were here!).
But there's a catch - if you want to win a lil' love, you gotta give a lil' too.
Send something sweet to 5 more friends/folks in your life too.
Even if you aren't crafty... a nice tea, a mix CD, chocolate!
