Christchurch Creatives - I salute you!

Yesterday was a time for reflection and rememberance for Cantabrians on the 1st anniversary of the devasting Christchurch Earthquake.

Today I want to celebrate and showcase some of the fabulous products of 18 talented makers I know from Christchurch and who I have met on-line or in person (some both!) and who have so impressed me with their resilience and determination to carry on doing what they do despite losing studios, equipment, being bogged down with liquefaction, having no utilities and facing hardships most of us can only imagine. 

I salute you : Justine - Redflax, Emma - Freedom Creative, Rose - Rose Among Thorns, Mel - Black Swan, Rosie - Rosie Miller, Bronwen - BK Crafts, Megan - Sly Fox, Kirsty - SugarSugar, Katherine - Oscar&George, Paula - Slipstitch, Joe - Bibbles Dribble Bibs, Erica - FunkyGlam, Fran - Frangipani, Gillian - Mudbird, Nin - Sailor Spy and The Wardrobe, Julia - Relique, and Brenda - Natural Star and Lucy of Felt.  You are AMAZING!
