In February, the wonderful Anne of My Giant Strawberry organized a joyful exchange of handmade goods between some of her fellow bloggers. I was assigned to make something for Laura, a very upbeat architect from Italy, who now lives and works in England. She had some beautiful photos of herself on her blog, so I used one as an inspiration for this cut paper portrait.
I hoped very much that I did her justice, and she did say that she liked it.
The person who was assigned to make something for me was Baukje from France. She sent me a precious hand knit cat, French soap tied with a handmade bouquet of flowers, and textile napkin holders from a thrift shop. It was so much fun to receive such a package from another country from an artist I have never met! My thanks to Anne for arranging such a happy exchange!
I hope that everyone is enjoying a happy Sunday!
