Hey everyone! :)
I’m sure you have all heard of the magic of swapping, and I had too, but I had never actually swapped something for something.
Until last week. Nicole, a Twitter buddy of mine and someone whom I’ve met last year during a blogger meet-up agreed to swap some goodies with me for an overlay mandala! At first we agreed on a pen case made from some amazing fabric she had in her stash. But then she reminded me that she also does leather work, so we settled on a cover for my Moleskine schedule. Oh, and I had the option to had some words punched in the leather… Guess what I chose? ;)
This leather is so smooth and supple, and to top it off it even smells nice! When I just got it I couldn’t stop sniffing it; in fact I still can’t stop!
But there was more in the envelope she sent me… When we settled on the leather cover, I had to say goodbye to the pencil case. But to my surprise, look what I found?
Isn’t this the cutest thing ever? Apparently there were some owls on the fabric too, but Nicole skillfully cut around them for me ;)
And I will never leave the house without my new favorite companions:
If you’re interested in some leather accessories, check out Nicole’s blog, or send her a message! But be sure to check out her blog regardless: she blogs about crochet and accessories and makes the cutest things! :)
