Don’t forget Mothers Day

29 Mar

Mothering Sunday is less than a week away now, so if you’re still struggling to find gifts or cards why not try Buying Handmade and looking online at Folksy where you can find handmade quality items from independent UK designer makers (some of which will post orders worldwide).

The official Folksy blog lists lots of ideas for quality handmade Mothering Sunday gifts.

I also have some greetings cards and notepads made from recycled card available in my Original Minnie Folksy shop.  They are all hand stamped by me, so if you would like a specific name or phrase, just let me know.

Alternative wrapping

Following on from yesterday’s Countdown to Christmas of 4 days to Christmas, I thought I would let you know about an alternative method of wrapping presents – furoshiki.  Furoshiki originates from Japan, and uses beautiful neck scarfs and knots to wrap a gift, instead of using paper, boxes, bags, and sticky tape.

I first came across the concept of furoshiki at a Lush shop (national chain of handmade cosmetics shops).

But after a browse on Folksy, I have found myfuroshiki‘s shop where they print and make some of their own fabrics for furoshiki wrapping and giving.

One of the best things about furoshiki is that you are giving two presents instead of just one, as the wrap can be used afterwards too as a little scarf, or used as a bag tie, or wall hanging… very eco friendly.

You can find out more about Myfuroshiki and ideas on how to use furoshiki by having a peek at their blog.

I found these little gems in the Folksy Shop of Dormouse Studio, who has been working with stained glass for several years.

They were bought as gifts, but I may have to hold on to one of them for the tree!

You may have noticed that the Original Minnie Folksy SHOP has been ‘on holiday’ for a while now.

I just wanted to let you know that the shop will be getting some new designs added over the next few weeks (including a new range of greeting cards I’m nick-naming the ‘swing-tag’ range), so the shop will be ‘up and running’ again very soon!

In the meantime, you can still go ‘window shopping’, to get an idea of the Original Minnie creations available at the Folksy SHOP, and if you have any questions, please get in touch.
