These days I'm playing a lot with fabrics & trims. And for a few weeks now I've been making Love Flags--my twist on prayer flags. And I have made this Valentine Love Flag to send to one lucky winner! A little gift from me to you! All you have to do is leave a comment here, and in your comment share what has been a cherished Valentine gift or special Valentine moment or celebration for you. I'll leave the comments open for this gift for a week, and will announce the winner next Friday the 28th.
My Valentine Love Flag is made of cotton cloth, and embellished with my own hand stitching as well as machine stitches. Lace, buttons and felt are among the pretty trims. Each flag sqaure is attached to an long length of organza ribbon. The ribbon is arppoximately 42 inches long / 106.5cm.
This giveaway was actually to coincide with the opening of my new Etsy shop. Yes, I am making a return to Etsy! However, getting sick recently has the grand opening delayed for at least another week, possibly two, as I am still getting things in order fixing the shop front, banner, and new offerings ready. But I wanted to be able to have plenty of time to send the Love Flag off in time for the winner to receive and enjoy it for Valentine's Day.
Yes, the return to Etsy is a surprise, no doubt. I'm a bit surprised myself at moments as well--and excited too! It may seem counter-intuitive to start up a shop again, when I only just closed one a months ago. And that it might go against my Live Slow--Live Well guidelines for this year, as well as my Life List. But I'm finding the decision to try again may fall more neatly into both since my mind-set about the whole thing is different than before.
My new shop will offer different creations than I have shared before. These will reflect more of me, and be a greater extension of my creative explorations and spiritual practice. It is also a way to help whittle down my BIG craft stash and use what I have more creatively. The new shop will also be only a very part-time thing. There won't be lots & lots of new items appearing each week. And there won't be updates weekly here at Pink Purl. Sometimes news of specials or particularly exciting additions may make headlines here. But it will be a more quieter affair than before. Mostly it will be for fun. More details in a bit....
So coming soon... PranaLight--yoga-inspired jewelry, art & gifts!
Thank you for all the get-well wishes and lovely emails... I'm on the mend and feeling better. :o)
Wishing you all a beautiful LOVE-filled weekend!
