New window and giveaway!

A gloomy day in Brookline this morning, but I received a new, large box of Wrapped Cotton to bright my studio and to keep me inspired. I placed some on the front window and I like to run a giveaway to share a spool of Red and a spool of Black string with you, to try for wrapping or new ideas for packaging. If you like to partecipate, please leave a comment or like this link on FB. There is time until March 22nd, winner to be announced on the 23rd. I will ship anywhere in the world!
I also would like to add a little note on the new window display, I'm very happy about. If you remember the post on Design Sponge about the studio makeover, I had a few people commenting on the curtains on one of the windows, that really made me think to improve it. It was pretty easy, but it took me a few months to find the time to get it done. We moved the curtains a bit away from the window, hang them with metal pins from Ikea, to leave space for the blue table and a shop display, while still keeping my working area private, with lots of light. Come to visit and you will see...
