super duper craft swap with Davina from The Making Home

I’ve followed the lovely blog of inspiring artist Davina Drummond for absolutely ages, and when she posted a picture of some amazing laser-cut necklaces she made on Instagram, I tweeted her almost straight away and asked if she’d be selling any – she wasn’t but kindly said she had one left and would post it to me, so we decided to organise a little craft swap; she’d send the necklace, and I’d send her something in return. Exciting!

As soon as the necklace arrived, I loved it – I’m a big fan of anything laser cut, and the bright colour was right up my street. Although I’m wondering now whether I should have worn it with something slightly more subdued to take the picture…..

Coat: Charity Shop // Jumper: Violet’s Attic Vintage // Tired Face: c/o Two Rowdy Children

The necklace came in an envelope decorated in pink neon by Elfie, Davina’s amazing daughter, and there was also a lovely handmade card stamped with a dala horse motif (which has been swiftly displayed in my little craft area with my other favourite prints, cards and nick-nacks). We’re thinking about organising a larger craft swap as we enjoyed this one so much, so watch this space!

To see what I sent Davina, check out her lovely post here.

Thanks to Davina and Elfie for my lovely treats!

    Craft swaps are a great idea! And that necklace is too good, it would look amazing with a plain black top and a some red lippy. KERPOW!
