Look what came in the mail the other day, a hand-stitched leather brooch from Belgium! This came from the lovely Sandrine, who is a super crafty gal. I was really happy to hear from Sandrine, who suggested a swap for this laser engraved brooch I made. This is my first swap, how fun!

Merci beaucoup, Sandrine! I love it and look at the perfectly matched outfit I was wearing the day that it arrived.

I have been collecting photos of people and their brooches. I feel like the brooch has made a really good comeback in the last year and I love seeing all the different ones that people have. It is such a great way to wear a little piece of crafty goodness.
