Every year I join my Darcy friends in a Christmas Cards Swap. Twenty plus cards fly around the world back and forth carrying happy Austenian wishes of a better New year and a warm Christmas.
Not that we need any wish for a warm Christmas here in Rio… It’s already 37°C + and Summer only starts next week…
Anyway, look what I already got from Argentina and USA:
Usually I buy a simple card and write a heartfelt message but my Darcy friends always send me lovely hand made cards or nice recipes for cookies or brownies… #ashamedOfMyLazyCards
This year I decided to try harder and… I made a Christmas token!
Lovely mug warmers: a small sweet blanket to wrap around your favorite mug both to make it even nicer and to help keep your tea (or coffe) warm for a little while longer. All hand painted and embroidered (tsk, tsk) pour moi.
I really liked the final outcome… It took me a week to craft all the 20+ warmers…
Did you like it?
