And now for something completely different...

I'm joining in with crafting it forward! I've joined the chain from the ever-lovely emaye's blog and now it's your turn...

Here's the deal:The first three people to comment on this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.The catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and give the same offer to the first three commenters who will also craft it forward.
This offer has some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done this year.
4. You have no clue what it's going to be.
5. I reserve the right to make something extremely strange.
6. You must post a picture of what you win when you get it. (actually I'm not so bothered about number 6 but that's in the original rules, so I'm including it - I won't be offended if you don't do this!)

That's it! I've got a Saturday on my own tomorrow as J is finalising the cleanup of his uncle's house. I feel a lot better than I did on Wednesday when I posted last (thanks in no small part to those of you who said encouraging things - thank you!) and I think I'm in the mood to spend the day with either my sewing machine or my big box o' beads making stuff. So go!

(By the way, I stand by number 4 above. But if you could tell me whether you have pierced ears, that would be great. I hasten to add that earrings are only ONE SMALL POSSIBILITY, because I'm not even sure if I can find any earring backs, but I may possibly be feeling earringy. Maybe. Also maybe you should tell me if you have particularly large or tiny fingers. Same disclaimer as above. You can tell me what your favourite colour is too if you like. And if you are allergic to anything. Or not. I don't mind).

**updated to say that it doesnt' matter where you live! I have a quasi-post office in the basement of the building where I work, so everywhere is fine. A package I once sent to the US from there did go via Sweden, but it did get there in the end!!**


  1. I would be honored to receive a gift and to give gifts! :)


  2. Does it count if we live in the US? I feel like it will be a pain for you to mail!

  3. I am SO excited Claudia! Okay, so my ears are not pearced, but I think clip-ons are pretty cool. My fingers are average. I love green, but I am happy with all colors and everything so anyway, I'm pumped! :) What a great way to keep our minds off of the wait! Thank you for that.

  4. YES, Coleen, it definitely counts! Anywhere on this planet is fine (although foreign postage makes me glad that my craft isn't making large pieces of furniture...)

  5. I'll take the last spot! Then you can send two creations to TN (I live about an hour from the Easties). Let me know if you need an invitation to my blog.

    I do have pierced ears and tiny fingers.

  6. I do need an invitation to your blog, Julia! I've clicked on your blog a few times and thought d'oh! Invitation only!

  7. Oh bummer. I'm too late. But I do look forward to seeing what the heck you create for everyone! My problem is the only thing I can make is food/baked goods, which don't ship too well.
    Enjoy the crafting!

  8. Claudia,

    My ears are pierced, and I kind of have man hands sadly, so kind of big fingers. (My grandfather was a husky Swedish man with giant hands. I have managed for the most part to avoid his bulk, but I did inherit his hands. What can be done??) This is so fun! I am going to post it on mine today!

  9. Glad you liked Blurb... ours was not that interesting, just family snaps from holidays and a "dear birth mother" letter. I just liked it becuase it made everything I talentlessly put together look so sleek and professional!
    I wish I could make the baby blanked I am working on look smooth and professional, gah!

  10. Send me the address for the invitation: juliatn @


Over to you!
