for the past couple of years i've been a part of
my friend sam's social enterprise biddy bags...
it has been so lovely being involved...
i am chief photographer for the website and press,
and that's my teapot illustration
and crazy curly writing for the type face (see green label above)
i am inspired by sam's enthusiasm and commitment.
this unique business links
the older generation of craft makers and young women.
giving the ladies a 'fair trade' payment for their work,
keeping their skills current and worthy.
it started with bags...
and now (and the reason for this post)
it's mother's day soon (may 11th)
and still time to find that special present for our mums...
AND what better than one that is made with love...
and one that honours and respects the preservation
(and employment) of these wonderful ladies
so there's the plug... but the website says it all
