This is a gorgeous gift I received recently from my dear friend Theresa! She has no blog. Her talents are many and she is amazing. This gift was so unexpected and I was truly overwhelmed. This is a hand felted and beaded clutch envelope purse. The funny thing is that I didn't even know Theresa does felting and beading. I am so very grateful for not just this gift but for the friendship I share with this wonderful woman whom I have yet to meet in person. Thank you sincerely my friend!
Along with the felted work of HeART Theresa gifted me with a lovely hand made card and Tag in the style of T!m Holtz. I will be able to add these to the beautiful hand made book she gifted me with and I shared on this post.
Here are some simple little hand made gifts I have sent out. Angel earrings on a tag with fabric sewn to it.
No scraps go to waste at my home. I sewed them to manila tags and then attached some ceramic heart charms I put together. Off in the mail to surprise some of my faithful blog readers.
This little boy on Toile just begged to be a tag with heart charm. He arrived safely at his destination.
Here is another idea I like to do. Simple piece of fabric attached to a card as the background for cut outs. Nature theme here.
Here is the inside of the card and another little bird attached to offer a beaded dragonfly charm to the recipient. This has also arrived safely and was very much appreciated by the birthday girl.
My love of hand made gifts is truly a gift in its own right. I love to give and receive what someone has spent time and thought and talents to create. Do you like to receive hand made gifts?
June is here and moving briskly along already. I am going to find JOY in every day of June. I can't slow down the clock however I can be mindful and enJOY what each day holds for me. This will be a very busy month as Summer seems to be here. Mr. C and I have a lot already filling out our calendars. I will have no excuses not to find a lot of JOY in every day this month. I'll be sharing with each of you along the way. Creative Bliss and JUNE JOY...
