Christmas Cards for Dress A Girl Australia

Christmas cards for Dress A Girl Australia is now available for sale after almost a week of late nights designing, creating and printing them. Am not sure why I am not including this in my weekly creative life but I made them to sell so I can raise a little bit of money to help in paying for the cost of sending more dresses overseas especially this Christmas. I consider myself a craftivist. I make things using my crafting skills and sell them to do good in this great world of ours.

The cards come in 4 colors - green, red, blue and multi-color. They are of the standard greeting card size which is 110mm x 155mm. Has a blank inside panel for personal message and comes with a matching white envelope just like any normal greeting card. The only difference is that these cards are purely handmade. The only thing bought is the blank card itself.
Here is a sample of the card -
Card sells for $1.50 each plus postage of 60cents and for a pack of 10 it will cost you $12.50 plus postage of $1.80. Great value for money especially if you have many friends to greet. For those who live in the US and New Zealand, for a pack of 10 cards the postage would be AUD$6.20 for the US and AUD$4.50 for New Zealand and will be mailed via the standard international airmail. US postings will take between 7-12 working days depending on your location and New Zealand postings will take between 3-7 working days.  I still would consider it a great value for money if you live overseas if you decide to purchase this card as it would average AUD$1.75 per card and is also for a great cause. I make them to sell with no profit but to do good.

I have more christmas cards available for sale soon once I have printed them off. To order the cards above, you can either send me a message via 'Contact Me' (found on the left navigation bar) or send me an email to dressagirlaustralia@gmail.com or click here to purchase on-line.

Creative Life Week 40 - Christmas Headscarf

Am now into week 40 in my creative life and as predicted sewing will be taking over. A few more weeks and my creative life would be over. Am not going to say at this time whether I would be continuing my creative journey next year.

Well, this time I decided to make a headscarf. I have too many fabric scraps am not really sure what to do with them. A donor for my charity gave me about a dozen headscarves she made and when I saw them I thought they would be a perfect idea for my fabric scraps. Even the small scraps I can patch them together so I can come up with triangles. So here are the scarfs I made tonight. Two of them are made from a vintage fat quarter fabric and the other two are Christmas fabrics. I also have lots of Christmas fabrics some of them I bought about 10 years in the US while holidaying. Here is an image of the scarves I did. They measure about 8" x 16". They are reversible as the fabric I used for the front is the same fabric I used for the back.
I think I would make more of the Christmas headscarf, start a craze of wearing headscarf on Christmas Day made out of Christmas fabrics. I think it would be a great idea to be wearing one especially if it is going to be a very hot day and I think it would be a great way of raising funds. Yes, I think that is what I will do. Watch for these items in my store very soon.
