I seem to have made enough cards to open a small shop recently.
Not that I’m complaining – the idea of making, sending and sharing a homemade cross stitched… anything is a true joy. It’s merely an ambition observation.
This time I’ve taken a break from Christmas card-making to crack on with a Birthday card for a friend of mine. Ironically his birthday falls on Christmas Eve.
I’ve been very careful to make sure that this is NOT a Birthday-come-Christmas card because I’ve heard him complain many a time that this has always been the way he’s received cards and presents for most of his life. Aside for a little embellishment – which I know he’d never say no to – this is a no-Christmas zone.
I bought this Mouse Loft kit well over a year ago and I’ve been keeping it for someone who really appreciates motor bikes. I find it hard to buy and make keep sakes for the few male figures in my life, so when I see a kit such as this, I hold onto it until I find a worthy recipient.
I just hope he’s not reading this right now, as this has been posted a little premature.
