helpful crafters

My gorgeous sunglasses case arrived from BECKYBEAN yesterday. I love it. Bec's parents lost their house in the recent floods so she has generously donated all the proceeds from sales in her shop to the flood relief appeal. This divine new handbag item will be a constant reminder to me of how generous the crafty people have been in blogland. Humbling stuff.

Janie's in laws also lost everything in the floods including her mother in law's craft supplies. There was a call out from Selina to put together a package of any spare fabrics, buttons, elastics etc to help her replenish her supplies. It was such a nice feeling posting off that package knowing it might put a small smile on a face filled with lots of sadness.

I also posted off one of my boats which is going to be part of an auction in a fundraising event in Echuca.

Lastly, Sophie is also donating all proceeds from her shop sales to the flood relief. I just bought this divine brooch from her which is on it's way to a very special friend back in the UK who never gave up hope recently.

So there are tinsy winsy ways in which us crafters can help with the huge task of cleaning up and rebuilding of lives in Queensland. Even the tinsy winsy things count.
