One Girl

This aussie crafter creates some of the prettiest things in limited batches, making them even more special. One Girl is so talented, I’m always watching her store for new things because I think some of these would make the best gifts.

Random acts of kindness are so appreciated, I remember how happy cards and flowers made me when I found them left on my desk at work. I often miss these times when I’m working from a home office now, although my husband brings me tea each day and I do appreciate that. But cards and flowers from colleagues was always such an unexpected treat.

Sadly, flowers fade and die, and with the slew of crafters online now offering their wares, why not treat a friend at work with something soft – like a totem doll – and a pretty card, wrapped in natural linen tied in red and white baker’s string? I certainly would appreciate a kind gesture like that! And it’s not childish, as most of the ladies I worked with would have cherished such gifts.

    Such a lovely thought Holly! I know for a fact that when colleagues comeback from travel & bring back cute little dolls & keychains- they all get put up on my softboard. There is this blue haired golliwog thats my particular fav. :) I love the stuff u feature & the warm. happy way u write :)
