All of my products have been saved brand new from elsewhere. No product is ever ordered new into the supply chain direct from suppliers as there's plenty of fabulous crafty delights already out there to cater to everyone's tastes. It's a small contribution to reducing carbon emissions and landfill for the planet's health, while giving crafters the joy of creating something new and special.
I love to pursue my own crafting passions as well; as you crafters out there will know, it's fantastically relaxing and therapeutic. All of the completed projects have been made from kits, gifts or offcuts that have been saved too, rather than bought brand new by me.
