Pass the parcel…

As mentioned in my last post, on Saturday I received my Secretpostclub parcel for May and I wasn’t disappointed. My parcel was wrapped up in very trendy stripey tissue paper and I received a lovely handmade scarf by the very clever Sara. Thank you Sara its gorgeous, you are very clever!

Since joining the secretpostclub i’ve received two parcels that included handmade gifts and I am inspired to get crafting again. I’ve always been a little bit crafty as my mum is a self taught seamstress and often let me and my sister ‘have a go’ on her sewing machine. Although I never really made much on it apart from the odd cushion or two (as I was too worried I was going to break it) I would like to try my hand at the machine again. Mum makes allsorts for family and friends, she even made my wedding dress and 8 bridesmaids dresses. I got into card making when I was planning my wedding and I made all my own wedding stationery including invites, menus, place cards and thank yous. I love to do cross stitch and have made many cross stitch gifts over the years and plan to do many more. I need to ‘unpack’ all my cardmaking pieces as I had to put them away when I was in my last year of uni, something had to give and it was my crafting! But thanks to Sara and Sarah I think I may have the bug again..{sig}
