I've never done anything like this before... shared my ideas publicly, sold my handmade wares, talked to lovely people all over the world. I'm quite overwhelmed by your beautiful comments on the give-away and humbled beyond belief. I stumbled all over my thankful words in a post earlier and finally gave up. I am grateful for this experience, THIS I know. You are a very special bunch, and I am so lucky to have you all in my life!
A few thoughts about this little give-away bucket... it's just that: little. It's quite sweet, but I hope the lucky winner will not be disappointed that they can't haul a ton of stuff in it. Here is the description of something similar in my shop:
Corral your small stuff with this beautiful cloth container. It's the perfect size for keeping the little things in your life organized. From bits on your dressing table to special items at your desk, this bucket holds it together in simple ECO style. It holds much more than you'd expect and is even wonderful for sorting toys. What a fantastic substitute for plastic containers in your playroom! This bucket is constructed of sturdy food-grade jute from a recycled (fair trade) coffee sack. It's lined with oatmeal colored linen. Careful attention has been paid to every detail and all seams have been reinforced.
height: 4 inches
width: 4 inches
length 4 inches
That being said, thank you for your enthusiasm! I will ship all over the world to you! More buckets are almost done. My daughter is finally on the mend... it was a doozy, and I appreciated all of your well wishes more than you can know. I've been 95% mom this week and 5% sewist (do you like that word? just trying it on for size), but I'll try to have a new line of organic cotton items, as well as holiday gifts coming up in the next few weeks. I have plenty of ideas, but not a ton of time. Thanks for your patience.
