I have learned that forty-something months is a rather long time in blogland. I reread one of my old posts (written on February 17, 2013), and noticed that more than half of the people who left comments on said post no longer blog. But this entry is for those of us who are still around, so I’ll move on.
Today, many witchy souls celebrate The First Harvest. I planted too late this year, so my wee balcony garden is not ready to actively join in the festivities. While I thought about the act of sowing and reaping, I realized that this would be the perfect time to finally Do Unto Others with my hands, as I promised to do over three years ago. I might be a tad late *cough, cough, cough*.
Since I’m not in contact with everyone who answered my Paying It Forward call in 2013, I’m mailing my crafty bits to those who continue to play at my cyber-home: Gina from Daydream Believer, Diandra from Knusperhaus, and Oma Linda from Olde Baggs ‘n Stuft Shirts. I selected two more Wicked Darlings to send gifts to (I promised to give to 5). Their blackout poem surprise should reach them very soon. I did some thrift store treasure hunting, so some of the poem bits are framed. Not the ones going overseas, though—the frames I found were really heavy and shipping threatened the frugality of my disposition.
While in the spirit of doing unto others, let me show some of the gifts I’ve received from blog friends:
Two paintings and a blackout poem, from Amy of Sunshine and Daisies, if you pls. I love them all, Amy (especially the bits I’ve been coloring or have already eaten *cackles & giggles*). Thanks so much!
A necklace and bracelet from a giveaway, hosted by Ms Misantropia… Thanks a million, K. I can’t wait to wear my black and red beauties. Love the layering effect (and completely adore the surprise bit). 😉
