knick knack exchanges.

remember Danielle's Knick Knack Exchange? The beauty of the swap was to send off something that described you. My exchange partner was Carin of Already There. I sent her off a little jar that could be a keeper of beautiful buttons, a vintagesque frame, and since i love postcards; i included an antique postcard found at an old shop.

Carin was so sweet to say that what she loved most was probably my hand written note. That made me smile.


the talented and sweet Brittan of Little Owl Arts got me and it was fate because i actually won a giveaway she was hosting too. Seriously, lucky! She sent along the cutest little hand made owl who i've named Sebastian, hand made card that included the most beautiful feathers & a note i loved reading about her, spring earrings she also made, and a hand crafted nuno felt garland inspired by the Scandinavian culture she is intrigued by.

Max loves it too!

i wish i was a craft goddess, because i believe hand made gifts are the best. Thank you sooo much Brittan xo


and thank-you Danielle for hosting such a fun swap!

i made a birthday card for my mom. it was actually a pain in the ass to do it, but it turned out pretty well. sigh. all this crafty stuff takes a LOT of time, and it generally requires more talent than i have. oh well!

Ok seriously, I need to join in these swaps, they look seriously amazing! I wish I was more crafty too. I sewed a pair of pants for my brother the other day and he laughed and said they looked "jankey". ;( Epic fail.
