indie gift box!

When Erin Flynn, the designer who created my logo, business cards, and post cards, asked me to be a part of her new project, Indie Gift Box, I had to say yes! First, I knew it would be good for me to participate in something, get my name out there. Second, I definitely wanted to help start this off strong. And finally, it just looked like fun. So I said yes.

But what is Indie Gift Box? According to the website:
We are a company dedicated to promoting independent artists and small businesses! We curate great items every month and organize them into themed boxes that you can purchase. Our goal is to help you discover new artists and companies, and to help those artists and companies grow their businesses!

I decided to send in several of my snuggly cuffs and wristlers. At first I thought about yarn, but the price point was a little high. Plus it would require the recipient to have some further skill to do something with it. The cuffs are small and wearable immediately, so I sent off five to Erin. She will place them in the boxes and some mystery person out there will get them! It could be you! If you are interested in purchasing a box, head over to the website and on July 1, you can place your order. Also, read the blog to learn more about each artist who has contributed. You may find someone there who is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Erin recently learned to knit. And she’s been kicking butt. Just a week or two ago I sent her some yarn in exchange for working on my business cards, and she’s already made something awesome with it. Check out these great fingerless mitts! My handspun on top combined with a commercial yarn. Thanks for sharing, Erin!
