Craftaholics Anonymous a few weeks back. I got an email telling me who my partner was, my partner is Alyssa, we exchanged a couple emails and I got to work. I really struggled deciding what I was going to make I had so many ideas, I wanted to make them all, but this is what I came up with. It is a silk flower broche.
I hope Alyssa likes it! I used silk to create the flower, some grosgrain ribbon, pearls in the centre and added a alligator clip to the back. The alligator clip makes it easy to wear on clothing, add as an accent to a neckless or scarf, you can add it to a bag or even put it in your hair. I thought it was versatile and easy to wear a number of different ways.
The deadline was creeping up on us and I was a little worried, no I wasn't worried about getting the project done that wasn't the problem. The problem is I live in Canada, oh wait that didn't come out right :-) I love living in Canada that wasn't the problem the problem was unfortunately our postal service is on strike. I was hoping they would come to some kind of agreement before I had to send this gift but they didn't....no fear thank goodness UPS is here :-). Off to the UPS store I went and my gift was shipped off in the mail.
I really had lots of fun taking part in the Handmade Gift Exchange I hope to take part again in the next round. You should check it out too, the next Handmade Gift Exchange is in November maybe we will be partners!
