pressie


A close friend [annie]bought me this for christmas, and I just love it. It was purchased here from the local christian bookshop, and is handcrafted soap of assorted varietys[and they smell so good], with a wooden soap holder and loofah, in a wooden tray, but the packaging is just beautiful, seems to be made of recyled products with some decorative bits thrown in.[and the picture here just does nt show just how pretty it is IRl].I love the box as much as the product inside.It comes with a tag which states that it was made by a village handcrafters non profit project and has a website so you can see what its all about.They have some gorgeous soap giftboxes and the stationary sets and journals are just beautiful, they also have some really bright bags, and wooden toys etc.
Wish I had of found this site earlier as would have done a bit of chrissy shopping from there. It seems to mean so much more than just buying a present for someone.
Have a look.

Hi Maryanne, thanks for stopping by my blog :)
Have just had a bit of a looksie at your scrapping, I love your style. I miss scrapping. Maybe the New Year will bring me some more time (like an extra 24 hours in each day, LMAO) to scrap.
