MadeIt Kris Kringle

Along with some of the lovely handmaidens of Australia that are my co-sellers on MadeIt, I recently took part in a Kris Kringle, and I was really thrilled to be the lucky recipient of this lovely journal cover, complete with notebook and pen!

What a sweet cover, with handpainted butterflies, and such a gorgeous sentiment too!

Just what I needed, as I have many plans for 2014  – and now I have a great place to keep them!

It took me quite a bit of searching before I found out who the creator of this lovely cover was – but I found her! I knew I’d seen that style somewhere before! It was Rachel from Babee and Me.

Rachel’s shop is just overflowing with divine gifts for babies and children, like this divine fish teether, or these fabulous wooden blocks.

Thank you so much, Rachel – I’m really looking forward to filling this lovely journal with plenty of dreams to follow in 2014! Happy festive season, and I hope your Kris Kringle gift was as lovely as mine. 🙂

Australian Wandarrah Secret Santa

I signed up to participate in a Secret Santa swap which is taking place on the Australian Wandarrah Etsy team I belong to. Look what arrived in the mail – this gorgeous parcel!

When I opened it, here’s what I found inside:

Yes, it really did feel like Christmas.. and even better, a nice early Christmas! And LOOK what was inside the parcel:

Oh, how lucky am I? What totally divine Christmas ornaments, and such a beautiful key fob! The handstitching is immaculate, and these gorgeous goodies are obviously made with such love and care.

Of course, when you get a Secret Santa present, it’s just second nature to want to know who it’s from – so with a little detective work, I discovered that the creator of these handcrafted delights is Nari from Nari Design Pot!

Nari’s shop is filled with divine handmade creations – as well as these lovely Christmas ornaments, she has many other treasures.

You really should check them out – I bet there’s something there for a few people on your Christmas list! You can find Nari on FaceBook, too.

Thank you SO much, Nari – you really made my day with your thoughtfulness, and your divinely made creations. I hope your Secret Santa is as good to you as you were to me!
