Friday Follower- Chicuff by Daneve

.
I cannot quite believe I have over 100 followers. 111 to be exact. It's quite lovely to imagine so many peeps looking at my pictures and sipping tea (you DO all drink tea, don't you? I will imagine so.)


I want to know more about all of you, as well as share your delightfullness and craftiness with everyone as a way to show my appreciation and say thanks!

And so *drum roll* I introduce my Friday Follower! (I borrowed this awesome idea from Thea and Sami, a textile designer- do go say hi!) For my first follower, I've picked out Daneve- we've only just met, but I like her already.


Daneve has a lovely blog called Chicuff. Her design message is simple: 'Don't discard it...have fun & be CREATIVE!' Chicuff designs are unique, wearable art transformed from rescued and recycled Environmental "Green" bags. Each piece is individual with a unique past, present & future story of its own.'

I especially love these door brooches, part of her 'knock knock' series.

And these recyled envelopes from sheet music..


You can find these (and other lovely things) in the Chicuff etsy store and Chicuff Made it store .
.
Daneve has also started a Op-Shop Challenge coinciding with the start of her other blog, Brissy Op Shops! If you live in Brisbane, I do recommend having a look. Actually even if you don't. Go have a look.

Nice to meet you Daneve!
