So, I joined. And at the first opportunity signed up to participate in the first gifting event I could - The GBK Luxury Gift Lounge for the 2012 Golden Globes. I had a couple of choices. I could create 10 gifts for the press, 100 gifts for celebrities, gifts for celebrities and a display, business card only, etc. I chose to gift to members of the press. My reasons were two fold. It was a less expensive venture for me (materials, packaging, etc.) and the deadline was right around the time of my busiest time (pre-Christmas).
Then I thought about what I wanted to gift and how I'd present it. Not an easy task. I wavered. It had to be small, yet at the same time portray what I was capable of. My first choice was to make these little felted bowls, but I just didn't think they had the 'wow' factor. But, I went with it and made the bowls. But, about 2 weeks ago, I decided to change. Silly me. Now I'm making 10 pairs of embellished, felted alpaca cuffs or fingerless mitts (due no later than the first week of Dec). They are lightweight, and stylish, and will come in a selection of colors and embellishments. I love them. And the Christmas orders are rolling. So I'm busy! Busy is good! Just a little crazy!
You'll see my Lightweight Felted Alpaca Cuffs in my shop next week! Be on the lookout!
|These fingerless gloves are similar to the cuffs, only they have a thumb hole.|
