Thoughtful Crafter

I obviously loves me some Sandi Genovese or else I wouldn’t have named a color after her for my Craft line of yarn.  I respect her as an artist, TV host and business woman.  I just wanted to share with you though, how thoughtful she is as a friend as well.  Most of the crafty people I know (often, me included) have given up paying attention to the personal touches in gift giving, especially when it comes to our loved ones.  Ironic, I know, but there’s only so much time in the day.  Sandi however, remains faithful to her craft in all aspects of her life.  I feel honored to reap the benefits of her generosity of spirit.
Yesterday, Dave and I received a wonderful wedding gift from her in the mail which included this handmade card from her line….

and the COOLEST, eco-friendly platter, made from international newspapers (adorned with lemons from her backyard).

We just love it–and I was so touched that she remembered us.  I can’t believe we’re only 2 months away from our 1 year wedding anniversary!  Crazy.
So to recap:  Handmade cards=sweet! Eco-platters=awesome.  Thoughtful crafters=kick ass.
That’s all.  Thanks for listening.  🙂
