Ahhh don't we all LOVE when the postman delivers us a parcel, especially when we know that it contains handcrafted goodness?! Mmmm. I order quite a bit from fellow crafters, I am a regular shopper with "Madeit.com" buying many of my gifts from crafters around the globe. But it doesn't always work out well you know. Once I bought a crocheted cushion and apart from being badly made, it wreaked of cigarette smoke - our dog has this cushion. Then there were the necklaces crafted from vintage beads - ahem, 1997 vintage and well let's just say the crafter was an excellent photographer than she was a crafter and identifier of vintage wares..Other buys are simply divine like necklaces from Lauren on Madeit.com, so I guess you win some and you lose some, I just don't get too upset and I chalk it up to experience and know that you have supported a self employed crafter.
Yesterday I got one of those Postie delights delivered to me! It was a parcel beautifully wrapped with a psonal, handwritten note and a nice little extra treat for me! Lovely!! One thing I do love about buying from many crafters, is the little packaging ways that tell you your purchase is truly appreciated, you are a worthy customer and that the seller is as divine as their wares. Yesterday I got one of those Postie delights delivered to me! It was a parcel beautifully wrapped with a personal, handwritten note and a nice little extra treat for me! Lovely!! My order was from one such caring lovely seller, our very own Queenly crafter, the delightful, the wonderful, the so very clever, kind and gorgeous Cam of Curly Pops.
Another wonderful thing about this lovely blogger and her business is that both her blog and her business truly run to the same ethos. Cam sells a few items such as "You Sew Girl"'s amazing patterns that have everyone screaming delight about, but she only stocks the stuff she KNOWS is ace. Cam promotes other Aussie bloggers with generosity, her support to new crafter and bloggers is endless and is always hosting fun events like sew alongs.
As you can tell, I am probably going to announce my candacy for President of the Super Pops fan club - when I do I may even get to meet her in reality! OK I did once, years ago, but I went all stupid and mumbled and stumbled off leaving her to ponder what a ding bat I was ( or at least she should of).
So if you haven't met Cam or had the Curly Pops experience get yourself over to visit her blog now!! I think Cam is having a sale too, so lots of lovelies to have at wonder prices!!! Yay!!!
