I wish you all a very happy St Valentine day! and i hope you are surrounded by love ( not only the romantic one).
I was asked for some pictures of what i sent for christmas and after... i don't have a picture for all as it depends on the receiver approval or not so i will perhaps add more later when i receive them or add them under the handmade tabs later...... anyway since today is the day of love and since i made those with all mine i thought it was the perfect day to share ^^;; ( before the flu wins over)
So i have sent what i could and i don't want as a rule to limit the people because of their country so i sent everywhere but sometimes smaller gifts. ( need to respect the customs rules too) Also let's be honest ^^ side from the shipping fee it's also depend on the information i got ^^ the more i know the receiver's tastes the more i can try to respect them or have more ideas of creations.... i send nearly 20 packages ( i lost count) with handmade bookmarks, handmade scarf or bracelet ( for those who loved the one i made for Suzanne johnson contest)...also some other little one ( keychain etc) but the list would be too long.
And now that the last one has been received as soon as i'm healed for goods i will start working on the next ones so if you ever receive an email from me asking for your tastes ^^ be as complete as you can so your surprise gift can please you ( i hope so).
Each piece being handmade they are never exactly identique even if the pattern is the same ( some love the same things after all^^)
And if you wonder it was not sent only to long time friends but if i feel like you could need some cheering up of if you have been kind to me ( or someone i know) i tend to want to return the favor and yes sometimes after that the person become a friends but it's not a pre requise. It depends of the time i have of course but i do my best thus is why i already started a list.
i do think i prefer to do this because no reprocity is awaited it's simply sharing the love and the christmas magic, of course i'm delighted when i receive something as well but it's not mandatory...which is the opposite of a christmas card exchange....because there i was disappointed with only two answer only on the bunch i send so i will probably focus my money for the surprise /magical gift than on a card excahnge in 2015
example of bookmarks:
to Sullivan mcPig from Pearls cast in front of a McPig
to Nat from reading romances in Brazil:
To Laura ( scarves and bookmark) from Colorimetry
i must admit that the for the hat my mother helped a lot since i'm a beginner at knitting
no picture of the others so far but if i receive some i will share :)
Did you receive a gift that you found more special or magical than the others in 2014? If you could receive one for Christmas 2015 what you would prefer?
