Mum Knows Best
My Mum always had a drawer in which she saved presents. You know the sort of thing; you are out and you see something and just can't bear the idea of leaving it behind even though you are not really sure who will receive it? You end up with a drawer stuffed with little goodies and as a birthday of a friend or relative approaches, you open up your little Aladdin's cave to peruse and decide what they might like….
Do you have a gift cupboard? I do. I also have a drawer where I store lovely cards which I pick up to go with the gifts.
Recently I have been making lots of jewellery which is going directly to the recipient and I was thinking that perhaps some of my jewellery might fill the ‘gift cupboard’ pre-requisite! I also thought I would share one of my favourite maker for cards. Have a trip over to instagram and look at Stephanie Lambourne's work. Her paintings are just beautiful and sum up the quirkiness of life in Norfolk and Suffolk - her instagram account can be found at @stephlambourne and her cards can be found in many places including the Bircham Gallery in Holt and The Garden House Gallery in Cromer.
