Untold Imprint and Craft It Forward


 untold necklaces_492
Do you know Phoebe Stout? She's the talented lady behind Untold Imprint. Several months ago, she posted about a lovely project called Craft It Forward. The first 5 people to comment on her blog received some lovely handmade goods and agreed to do the same on their blog.

I jumped at the chance. I'd be a longtime fan of Phoebe and thought the project was such a lovely idea. I received a lovely necklace/wrap bracelet, as well as a pretty tea towel and hand printed card.

The sweet tea towel graces a wall in my work studio.

I've purchased several of Phoebe's pieces since, and they've been in heavy rotation all summer.

The little green necklace features a lovely brass bell that gently tinkles when I move.

This photo is for my husband, who complains that I never include photos of me fully smiling.


Phoebe has such a lovely sense of aesthetics: calm and natural. And very beautiful quality!

So, if you would like to receive a little handmade treat, leave me a comment. The first five people who do will receive a package from me. Once you do, write a blog post about it and continue the project by sending something handmade to the first five commenters on your post. Send anything handmade by you, before the end of 2012.
