Can you keep a secret?
Well, I can't and if I really have to keep my mouth shut it will be pure torture! The last time I had to keep a secret, I became so anxious that I got exzema all over my hands. I know that I should wait until the swap ends but the deadline is May 28th. Can I keep a secret for a month?Obviously not! I'm part of the Functional Felt Swap organized by Painted fish studio and Three sneaky bugs. I think that it's an interesting swap because, as much as I love dust gathering items (aka my little softies collection), it's always interesting to get something that has a real purpuse. Even if deeply I think that gathering dust is a crucial function in life ;) So, after I received by e-mail my swap partner's favorite colours, I purchased nice wool felt and made a card case and a lined pouch. I'm a strong believer in "simple is better". I also think that a good quality felt, a colorful vintage ribbon and an attention to details can make a simple item quite attractive. Right? Now, I can't mail that pouch empty! What should I put in it?
