Packaging is important.

I almost cried when this came through the post. This is Tomas. He is so wonderful. I have wanted one of Little Scruffs Bears ever since I saw them on MISI and now I have thrown caution to the wind and have bought one for my grandaughter. I shall keep it until she is older as she is only 20 months old! So, I can have a few years of loving him and then Tomas goes to live in Australia. This is not a good picture of him. Jean at Little Scruffs is so much better than me at photographs.

These pictures are of the packaging from Calico and Threads. I am getting a thing about packaging. Since I have been buying from MISI and Folksy I have realised that it is not the same as receiving an order from M&S. When the packaging is as thoughtful as this it is a gift to yourself.

This is the newest creation! I sold the little flower earrings on MISI yesterday. To be honest I had forgotten about them and was looking for a picture for my blog and thought I would pop them on. Within minutes they had sold. Wish every day was like that!
So today I took out my black beads and this is the result.
I thought it would be nice to make a necklace and then a bracelet grew too!
I love days when a plan comes together.


  1. you are absolutely right - buying direct from a maker is such a different experience. They really care how the product arrives and put in lovely little touches so that it feels like such a treat to open it up

  2. what a great day you've had :-)

  3. And....I sold a bookmark too!!
    If I wasn't so tired I would do a happy dance.
