About a year ago now (and I can hardly believe it’s been that long already) I participated in a pay-it-forward giveaway with Hollie from The Undercover Crafter. The rules were simple: She had one year to make me a handmade gift. All I had to do was agree to pay-it-forward to someone else within one year myself. Well, I got Hollie’s lovely gifts a few weeks ago—that’s right, she didn’t send just one thing, but three!
Think maybe she’s noticed how much I love the x-and-plus block? : ) This fun little potholder (featuring two of my favorite hard-to-find lines, Park Slope by Erin McMorris and Deer Valley by Joel Dewberry) has already gotten lots of use around the kitchen.
And this dish towel trimmed with Ruby Star Rising is really brightening up the place as well!
And finally, she sent me this gorgeous linen shadow-dot-print cowl! It’s incredible—it looks so fabulous with my red peacoat. Sadly, it’s been such a warm spring I haven’t had much chance to wear it yet, but never fear, it’s Wisconsin. There will be plenty of opportunities forthcoming.
Thank you so, so much, Hollie! What a fun surprise to open my mailbox and find your thoughtful, beautiful gifts.
And now of course, this means it’s my turn to pay it forward. If you’d like to participate and receive a handmade item from me, just leave a comment on this post. I’ll choose two random winners tomorrow morning. The winners only have to agree to pay it forward to someone else in turn. And again, I have one year to make my pay-it-forward items. I can’t stress this enough. Expect me to use the full year, because that’s just how I roll. LOL.
