So I signed up for another craft challenge...
This time its a little different because its not just jewellery makers but all crafty people. Back in August I received an email from someone called Dan asking if I wanted to be part of DHL Crafty Blogger Challenge.
This is the challenge:
aim of this campaign is for you to share your creative craft skills
with another craft blogger, by creating an item for them and sending it
via a prepaid DHL courier box."
OK... Another challenge... Yeah of course I want to be part of it!
So they sent me a DHL box with all the instructions and Hobby Craft Vouchers as a thank you for taking part. Now I am not a regular at Hobby craft but I do like to browse and pick up bits from there on and off, especially when working on packaging ideas, so this is VERY welcome. Thank you parcel.dhl.co.uk
Then I had to wait for my item to arrive from Vintage Magpie Bears which would be my inspiration and theme for the item I have to make for the next blogger in the "Chinese Whisper Chain"
Don't call me Cute? Really? How can you not call this cute?
And now I have to make something for supremely talented crochet artist Izabela Motyl.
Thanks Dan! How did you know that I can't sew, knit, crochet? And went on to pair me with people who are so good at these skills?
Anyway... Watch this space people and hopefully I will be able to make something that will do justice to this very CUTE bunny :-)
