I just recently exchanged handmade happies with my friend Becca. It was a random thought one day to ask Becca if she wanted to make a bunch of stuff & trade with me & I would do the same. She was immediately on board & we chose the color scheme "black & white" as our theme.
The collage up top shows all the awesomeness I received from the creative & lovely 13 year old. A portrait of an owlie done in pastels with stitched embellishments, tags, a floral embellished headband, hand painted mug & plate (in a cupcake theme!), a wallet, & 2 pillowcases. (All were handmade by Becca except for the tags.) I adore everything! Thanks Becca!!
(We were able to do the swap in person while I am in Washington visiting family!)
For Becca, I filled a record bowl with bits & baubles & trims & things.
I stuffed a mini suitcase with things like: domino magnets, vintage gloves, a vintage button ring, hand knitted white & black hair bows, mini paper pinwheels, pinback buttons, a mini notebook...
...my favorite item to make was this hand knitted postcard.
I tucked some of my favorite quotes & saying inside handmade paper fortune cookies.
Zoey even suggested I give her our most recent creation made from a t-shirt in our Summer Diary Series.
(It's a bag!)
I also made these faux screenprinted cards.
Here's happy me, opening my prezzies.
And here's happy Becca!
Becca is such a creative person & she has so much talent. I felt honored to be able to swap handmade with her. I am envious of her fierce creative spirit & her amazing confidence at such a young age.
