A quick check-in:
1) As of this writing, there are 3 more gift card holders waiting to be claimed in my Thank You Giveaway! Please see the post if you'd like to receive a little fabric envelope made by me. Readers, I so appreciate you. I worked on the packaging for these guys today. After a little head-banging, experimentation, and input from my mom, I am really happy with the result (and only collapsed dramatically on the floor once). Thanks, Mom.
2) I'm having a Gift Toppers Workshop in Seattle this Sunday (the 25th), from 3:00-4:30pm. Surprise! It was filled by family friends, but there was an unexpected cancellation. If you would like to join, please e-mail me ASAP at giftedmailbox(at)gmail(dot)com!
3) I bought the most expensive piece of jewelry in my life (save for G.'s wedding ring) today. I first laid eyes on it last week and I've been thinking about it ever since. When I told the consignment shop owner, she nodded. "It happens," she said understandingly, "Especially with jewlery and shoes. I get calls all the time." It's a pearl necklace accented with a vintage brooch, and it's awesome. Made by a friend of the shop owner. Have been thinking a lot about giving handmade and buying handmade. Note to self: keep thinking and post about this soon.
