A couple of weeks ago I made my first knotty necklace after seeing Marina's great tutorial over at Wink Designs .
Miss A and Miss B eyed it off for a couple of days until I suggested we sit down together and make them one each. The second the necklaces were finished they put them on and have worn them religiously every day since, including while we were away (you can see them in the photo's in that post!).
While we were away, staying with my SIL, the children next door spent alot of time playing with my girls. They admired the necklaces, and their mother complimented and enquired about Miss B's On-the-go Art Satchel!!
I cannot tell you how great it felt to have someone admire and compliment something I had made before they even knew I had made it!!
I happily agreed to make her girls one each.
So yesterday I sent a lovely little package up to Queensland filled with handmade gifts...............
I think this little combo of an On-the-go Art Satchel and knotty necklace will become my signature gift for any little girls birthday parties we attend this year.
Yes, I really do think so!
I couldn't resist posting this picture of little Miss B, decked out in a riot of colour - all things that this mama has made.
Do you still get a buzz out of seeing the things you've made being used??
I sure do, and I think it's that buzz, that sense of achievement and satisfaction that keeps driving my desire to continue to create............
This evening I entered two tops I've made recently into the Made by Rae Spring 2010 Top Week competition.
Sooooo many great tops have already been entered, I've already added afew more projects to my ever growing list.
Here's hoping you get some time to create this long weekend - hope it's a good one
