After years of tenement living, I now have a wee garden and I feel very lucky to have it with everything that’s going on out there. Watching the birds come and go is such a calming and welcome distraction from the anxiety and overwhelm that comes from the non-stop news updates and worrying about family and friends.
I’ve been thinking of ways to spread a little creative cheer, so I’m emailing all customers - past and new - a printable kit to make your very own garden birds garlands! So, even if you don’t have your own garden or can’t get out, you can bring a little bit of the outdoors inside.
All you need is a printer, scissors and string, and if you don’t have a printer, then feel free to follow the shapes and draw your own.
I know it’s just a small gesture, but I reckon we all need as much colour and hands-on creative time as we can get just now.
I hope you enjoy it. Thanks again for your supporting my business during this tough time; every purchase makes a difference. If you are looking to buy cards or gifts, please consider buying from independent makers and small businesses. If you’d like any recommendations, feel free to give me a shout and I’ll happily point you in the direction of someone brilliant.
Enjoy making your garland/s and stay safe.
