About, oh, um, 11 months ago, I pledged (on Facebook, so does it really even count?) to make a handmade surprise in 2013* for anyone who requested one.
I'm happy to announce that I fulfilled my pledge!
Yesterday, I put 5 packages of handmade note cards in the mail for 5 special friends.
This is one of my favorite projects ever. I had a vision in my head and I brought it to life! The 'flowers' on the card are felt circles, attached with brads. The stems are hand-stitched. Simple, but cute. Right? :-)
Adding texture and dimensions to cards is something I always struggle with, but I think it worked out this time!
Did you pledge to make anyone anything in 2013? Did, or will, you succeed?
* I'm pretty sure I took the same pledge in 2012 and didn't follow through, so while I'm cutting it close, I did better than last year!
