So … I don’t do Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t a thing over here until very recently and I personally still don’t see the appeal. But when Sanae announced this year’s Secret Valentine Exchange, I really liked the idea and decided to ignore that it was loosely Valentine’s Day themed. I love sending and receiving snail mail and I obviously love handmade things, so I signed up.
I don’t think that the gift I sent has arrived yet, so I can’t post about that yet, but let me show you what I got! Here it is:
Oh, you want to see what was inside? Well, look at this, then! A pretty card!
Okay, just teasing … Here we go:
Look at that texture! Isn’t that fun? I love the grey felt with the holes in it, and the leather bands that it is sewn together with. And I love the combination of yellow and grey!
Aha, you want to know who my gift is from? Well, that would be Anna in Denmark, a.k.a. “Mix + Stitch”! Look at that adorable leather label! I might have to steal that idea.
And Anna has even included some extra flowers for me to make something with myself. How fun!
Thank you, Anna! And thank you, Sanae and Ute, for organising this fun exchange! I’m already looking forward to the next one!
