In September the BBEST team organized a gift swap with theme the butterflies, to honor Pat, who was stepping down from her admin duties. We made a small gift and uploaded to the group pool in flickr. When the swap ended, everyone of us sent her creation to the person left to her photo on the pool. Today I receiver mine with the post!!! A very beautiful bookmark made by Sharon! The flat part is made with fabulous viscose felt from Myfanwy, and each side has totally different colors. Pewter butterflies are braided into a funky tassel made from some crazy yarn. It arrived beautifully packaged and it had also a very cute little card, made by ClaudiasCreations.etsy.com and is made from handmade paper that has flower seeds in and can be planted! Isn't it great to start your week so beautifully? Thanks Sharon!!!
