This challenge opened up a community within our small group, and has certainly extended outward with our blog followers and friends. If you are reading this, and would like to be part of our creative community, leave a comment with your blog post, and start the Make n' Tell!
I would like to extend a special thank you to Laura at A Frayed Knot Knits for being so innovative to start the September Make n' Tell Challenge, and for inspiring us to push ourselves beyond the limit! The original 'rules' can be read here, but Laura has stressed that we all have our own schedules to keep, so these rules are 'bendable'. I have many other weekly posts that I enjoy writing, but found myself immersed in the creative processes of the many projects I've completed in September. I found that creating and blogging every day can be daunting, especially when I have so much else I'd like to share by promoting my fellow artisans. I found that posting a few days' work every two days or so is a little bit easier for my schedule. I'll still try to post what I make that day, but I will be making something every day!
Now, onto the last two days of the September Make n' Tell Challenge!
Depending on what you make and how much you make, you'd probably would want to gift someone just to exercise the "pay it forward" kindness. Well, so happens, I have too much stuff from this past month, I don't know what to do with it all!
Day #30: Enter Ann, a friend of mine at work, and office manager of the Long & McQuade Brampton store. She's a very fashionable lady when it comes to office wear, and we've even done a couple of clothing swaps - the best way to get some really cool clothes for free! I had picked out two pairs of earrings I had made from Day #14 I thought she and her daughter would really like, and dressed them up all pretty for gift-giving.
