This is a teardrop envelope I made for a teacher at the school of my boys. This lovely Polish woman with a big heart turns forty next week and that fact is bringing her a lot of tears. When she told me that I decided to make her something special. So I designed a teardrop-envelope for her to symbolize her tears. And although her favorite colour is black I went deliberately for pink and purple. The pink I used as an expression of kindness and the purple as the colour of acceptance.
The button is made with the technique spool knitting and is filled with a pipecleaner.
Last friday I asked if any of my readers could write Polish. Julie responded and sent me over to Sotto voce. Before I continue, I would like to congratulate Julie first on receiving her BoN this week. CONGRATULATIONS Julie!!!
So fridaynight I visited Sotto Voce and met Polly. Polly responded very kindly too my request and helped me to write a little Polish note to wish her happy birthday. Thank you so much, Polly and now I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hope she will like the gesture.
Another week has gone by, which I spent doing the things I really like to do and sometimes my time was whisked away by things I just need to do, all of this with a smile on my face and singing along. Hope you also had a great week with a lot of creativity and sunshine. Before I leave, I want to thank everybody who stopped by and visited Landanna.
Have a fantastic weekend filled with sunshine and if you leave a comment I'll stop by and visit your place.
See you on monday!!!
