Today I sent off my contribution to the 'art of the note gocco swap' run over at clothpaperstring. Great idea and Sarah who ran it all has taken on a mammoth job. Over 50 contributors - wow! I was really happy with how my little note cards turned out, they measure about 10cm square and I handmade all the envelopes. Big job. What do you think? I searched high and low for this kraft card. Anyone know somewhere I can get some more? Preferably in Australia.
So this is my idea of a boy doll. Yeah I know, it's a boy in a skirt, but I love the wee little scotty boy and his lil' bagpipes. I thought I could name all these softies, ie Hamish MacDougall and his bag-blowin' mate Angus McTaggart. I cut these wee boys from lino and stamped onto some lovely fine weave cotton. On the back is a lovely brush cotton tartan. On the front, of course, is a lovely ginger scotty boy. The back looks like a chop- mmm tasty! I think they're cute. Thoughts anyone? Would you buy yer wee barn a chop-like, skirt wearing, ginger, bag pipe equipped, scotty boy softie?
Just to share - this is my current obsession. Wooden forks and spoons - sparked from a few blog posts back. Sourced from a local packaging place I am in love with these wooden lovelies. They also come in bamboo, but these ones are made from pine. I don't know what I'm going to do with them, probably just stay obsessed for a while and look, touch and rearrange them.
