One Perfect Day Giveaway

The giveaway is now closed. Thank you all for participating! The winner is announced at the end of this post.
I often stress on the fact that I absolutely love the interaction on the Kanelstrand Organic Living. As more time passes by, I get more distinctly the feeling of a community in which we help and inspire each other. 

Now, let me take you more than a month ago, at the time of the Red or Gray Giveaway, sponsored by my lovely friend ELK. The winner of the gift certificate for the Red or Gray etsy shop was Gia from One Perfect Day. Gia is also a fellow crafter who makes unique accessories, cuffs, jewelry and bags. 

Can you imagine how over excited I was when the ecstatic Gia contacted me to say that not only she was in love with Red or Gray shop and cannot take her eyes off Elaine's lovely romantic creations, but she wanted to sponsor a giveaway, just to say THANK YOU!

To tell you the truth, I was beyond myself because I realized that my dream of linking between creative people and helping the good energy flow is coming true!

So, today I want to present to you Gia's creations - unique and made specifically with the modern woman in mind, to compliment both the casual and the formal occasions in your life. I love browsing through Gia's brooches section. She makes the most dreamy of flowers out of a mix of organza, organza tulle and other similar fabrics to create a stunning, unique piece of art that defies description.

Under each flower is an arrangement of cotton canvas leaves with bright red stitching. Their edges are intentionaly left unfinished to add the element of surprise with a frayed edge to an otherwise perfectly finished accessory. In Gia's own words:

"I'm finding these organza flowers totally addictive. There is an unlimited scope for variation and experimentation. Not only with the petals in terms of color, size, shape and number, but also with the kinds of fabric you can incorporate into the flower that change the whole look.

While the motions that make a flower are repetitive, no two are ever the same and you can see the evolution of them with each new flower.

It's endlessly fascinating!"

Gia's excitement brought to life a set of most delicate mother - daughter organza brooches, created especially for this giveaway and charged with positive energy all the way from sunny Greece.
