When I first started Freedom Creative I never thought it would become a real business... but now here I am, with more than 500 sales in my Felt shop! To say thanks to everyone who has supported me and helped make this business what it is today, here's the chance to win any item from my Felt shop. To be in the draw, just email your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject '500 Sales'. I'll draw a random winner at 9pm next Tuesday (the 4th). Good luck!
Sorry to mention the 'C' word again but I promise it's for good reason!
The awesome All I Want For Christmas market is on this Sunday, November 25th, 10am - 3pm, at the CPIT Student Union on Madras Street in Christchurch. Freedom Creative will be there along with heaps of other talented local designers selling their wonderful wares.
To me, Christmas really isn't about the gifts - it's more about getting together with my spread out family (and having time off work, ha ha). However, I really enjoy giving gifts - searching out the perfect item, wrapping it all pretty and then seeing the joy when they rip it open. Every year I try to make a huge effort to buy handmade gifts for my friends and family - why support an overseas company when you can keep the money in our economy and help put food on the table for a local designer or artisan? And of course, the handmade gift will be more special, better quality and unique.
