Exciting News!

today was a very happy day. nice and chilly, a little bit of sunshine, and some Christmas decoration fun with my friend. we put on a cowl and matching wrist cozy's and headed outside with wreaths, mini lights, joyful apple branches... we got creative and had some good laughs.

now I hear you thinking: that is a lot of pretty wrist cozy's and fingerless gloves in different colors! yes, you are right. and yes, I designed them all, they are hand knit, but I did not make myself. how did this happen?

well, recently I got in touch with darling Anabel from Petits Fournier, you can read her blog and have a look in her pretty shop. she is the lady behind a beautiful initiative in Bolivia. through a long term collaboration, she has baby clothing and beautiful toys handmade with of the softest 100% baby alpaca yarn. I saw this happening because I follow her on Instagram. curious to know how she arranged all this, I send her an e-mail and now, a month later, here we are. my own design of the wrist cozy's and a matching cowl, handmade in Bolivia and now available for you in the creJJtion shop. I am so proud of this collaboration and my tiny participation in the business of supporting micro initiatives!

if you click on the pictures or texts above, they will take you to the items in my shop
as long as supplies last, both the cowl and wrist cozy's are available in six beautiful colors: creme white, grey, brown, pink, light blue and dark blue.

I would like to thank Anabel for giving me the opportunity to work with her and the team in Bolivia, and Karin for being my ever so patient and pretty model. it is great working with both of you Anabel and Karin! I am looking forward to many more projects in the future with you. 

and of course I hope you share a bit of my excitement and will take a look in the creJJtion shop ~ smile
