Craft it Forward and a Treat

I made three of these 'junk' pins this week- so nice to have my fingers fiddling with little pieces again. I have listed two for sale on Etsy.

Steph is hosting a Craft-it-Forward on her blog, and I am in awe of the diversity and talent she demonstrates in her jewellery making. I could not help myself I had to participate.

The rules are quite simple.
The first five people to respond to this will get something handmade by me. There are some restrictions, though:

1. You must be willing to blog about Crafting it Forward
2. You need to make something for 5 people
3. Leave me a message with your intent to participate
4. Then leave me another message with the link to your blog post

I will take your color preferences into consideration and am also willing to make it for someone you love and send it to them in your honor as a gift from you.
Not so long ago I ordered something from here. I can't show you what because they have not gone to their final home yet - but they are beautiful! Wonderful! Perfect! And they were packaged in the little box to the bottom left of this picture. Their creator is a friend of mine and opening this order felt like a surprise birthday party for me - lots of wonderful treats. I am so looking forward to showing you what I bought, but for now I think I will indulge in cookies and hot chocolate....

Hi Julie - I am not going to take part in your craft it forward offer, even though I'd love to, as I am so busy at the moment I'd feel bad about the time it would take to fulfill my part of the deal. BUT I did want to let you know my goodies arrived today and I really adore my bracelet (the notebook is lovely too) - can't wait to wear it (didn't today as I was doing lots of messy things). And thanks for the scarf pin - I know just the place I will make good use of it - a cardigan which has no fastening button and really needs something to use as a closure. Thanks again, what a lovely extra.

Julie,
I just LOVE these pins. I think you are inspiring me to make one. I have one that I bought months ago just sitting in a box somewhere...hope I can find it. Yours are so so FAB!!!

I will happily participate in craft-it-forward! I am about to start summer vacation and will have time to make 5 lovely items to send on. What a great idea!
