Handmades are a Girl’s Best Friend!
Each month, etsy Team North Georgia members have the opportunity to participate in a themed swap. December 2008 was the first month in which I participated, and the theme was “holidays.” I received this beautiful pillow ornament from Srijana of Eye Design. The color is gorgeous and the work impeccable. Although it was given as a holiday item, this pillow hangs on the door of my pie safe throughout the year. And I am enjoying it in April as much as I did in December!
We are just completing April’s swap, and I have received the most amazingly fabulous gift of all – drum roll, please. Rebecca of Smelly Rhino Studio made me this “Totally Tubular, but Really Rectangular With Pockets and a Picture Window Custom Tote” in the colors of my banner and avatar. There is a place on the front for my etsy logo/avatar (or a picture if I wish to switch it out) and for business cards on the back. It turned out so well that she now has it listed as a custom item in her shop! (I also received one of her special ACEOs and, of course, chocolate!)
