Thank you once again Rebekah from Forgotten Stitches for answering my questions and offering one of your gorgeous creations to one lucky winner. This month you had a chance to win a custom made Carnival Horse brooch.
And so the winner is..........
Congratulations @samanthaskouros !!! if you could email me your postal address (tunabake at hotmail dot com) Rebekah will forward you your fantastic brooch to add to your collection.
It is always fun to showcase makers and sellers of brooches and to be able to offer a brooch to add to your collections.
Collecting brooches is such a fun hobby, it doesn't have to be expensive and it can be a great way to support those people who continue the handmade traditions and the sellers of vintage brooches who save those brooches that might have been lost or beyond repair, back to life.
So until next Friday, keep up the brooching xx

Using soft materials to create a magical universe of animals, ladies, flora and novelty pieces, she manages to bring to life a romantic, whimsical time so perfectly.
Thank you Rebekah for agreeing to be April's maker and offering your time and a beautiful brooch to one lucky person this month for Novelty Brooch Friday.
I asked Rebekah a few questions about her work and influences:

My second piece of advice is to develop your own network of shops and markets.
And my third piece of advice is be careful not to burn out if you already have a job. Manage time for you and your family.
In conclusion believe in you, everybody has something different and special inside him/her, our modern society really doesn't help for that but believe me everybody has the Light inside him/her. So as I always say: "Go Go Gorilla" !!!
