|EST| Secret Easter Bunny

E o que é isto do Secret Easter Bunny?... Ora bem, como membro da European Street Team (EST), do Etsy, decidi participar numa divertida iniciativa criada a propósito da Páscoa. A equipa já o tinha feito pelo Natal, mas nessa altura eu ainda não pertencia à EST, por isso, já que não cheguei a tempo de fazer de "Pai Natal", aventurei-me desta vez a ser o "coelho secreto" de alguém. A ideia consiste em trocar um presente secreto com outro membro da EST (eu não sei quem vai enviar-me o presente e a pessoa a quem vou enviar o meu presente também não sabe de quem o vai receber) - um presente que será feito a pensar no destinatário e que levará um pouco da nossa arte a alguém de outro pais europeu que lhe dará certamente o valor que ela merece (ou não fossemos todos artistas, designers, artesãos)...

Ainda não enviei o meu presente, mas recebi o meu na semana passada e só posso dizer que o meu Secret Easter Bunny se esmerou! Mas vou continuar o post em inglês, para que os restantes membros da EST acompanhem...


As a member of the European Street Team on Etsy, I decided to take part on the Secret Easter Bunny, a kind of game that consists on creating a secret present to another team member based upon a questionnaire that each one of us fills out. In the meantime someone creates a present for yourself and there you have a Secret Easter Bunny of your own too! You give so you can receive too... This initiative was taken care by Mitsy, from ArtMind, who did a great work matching all the pairs and keeping track of all the presents.

So... I haven't sent my present yet (and for now it is still a secret!), but I received mine last week! I was really excited when I went to pick up a nice package coming from Dusseldorf at the mail station... Here's how it looked like when I opened it:

At first, a lovely postcard with some words, a chocolate (yummy!) and two nice little packages decorated with feathers - I really loved that lovely detail and I didn't want to damage the wrappings by opening them! Well, but my curiosity was stronger...

The first wrapping had a bunch of lovely supplies that will surely inspire some of my future creations: beads of different colors and shapes, most of them black and red - two of my favorite colors! Then... the second wrapping was even more special, take a look:

It was a beautiful bracelet made by the hands of Andee, from Andeesigns. I didn´t know her work yet, but I fell in love with her creations of "wearable art", mostly made out of silver and exquisite beads. She also has a photography shop and blog, where you can take a look at beautiful shots of nature.

The bracelet Andee sent me is made of sterling silver, coral and lava beads, which have a beautiful texture. She was really sweet and attentive sending me this original, beautiful and personalized present!

I'm sorry if the photographs are a bit dark, but I couldn't resist to open the package as soon as I arrived home that night... And here it is my new bracelet on my wrist and shining at day light:

Thank you Andee! I just hope to be such a great Secret Bunny to the team member I'm sending my Easter gift too...
