Last week I received a lovely hand embroidered wooden brooch that I won a while back from the amazing Maggie Makes blog. I absolutely love this blog and feel so lucky to happen across it just by chance one day while reading another crafty lady's blog. Karen, the genuis behind Maggie Makes, offers amazing free DIY tutorials, including one on how to make yourself this pretty little brooch I won. You can find the tutorial HERE.I was already excited to be receiving this lovely little accessory so imagine how thrilled and shocked I was to find other little goodies in my package from Karen! The packaging was so pretty that I just had to take photos of it to share with you. Much thanks Karen for the goodies! I can't believe I had never heard of Baker's twine before! It comes in so many pretty colors that I just had to buy myself some of my own!Karen also sent me a roll of Kamoi Japanese masking tape. I instantly fell in love and am already stocking up on some different colors/styles for my own packaging needs. I'm thinking of embroidering onto the fabric and then making them into dishtowels.
