A Fabulous Friday Feeling

Much wrapping and tying and tag making has been happening in the Hybrid Handmade house.  Nothing is thrown together here, oh no!  I craft my jewellery with the care of a couturier.  But it doesn't stop there.  I think the box that the jewellery arrives in is so important.



The boxes are packed with bubble wrap - but I wrap this with tissue paper and add a little woven fabric tag which says 'Hand made by Cari-Jane'.  Because everything is!  Hand made by me.


I often need a bit of help with this stage.  Whoever is closest to my workbench will be called to place the all important finger under the bow.  I find little tiny boy fingers work best.


These are all ready for an adventure.  They have a long way to go.  All the way to the other side of the world.


But just before they get packaged up in an envelope I always include a little hand written note with one of my cards and beautiful Italian paperclip.

Bon weekend mes amis.  I shall be planting alliums! How about you?
