Where in the World is the Crafty Travelling Box?

Sadly, after weeks of trying to locate the whereabouts of the Crafty Travelling Box I must admit defeat and gloomily announce the failure of what should have been a fun, international, multi-maker-sharing, stash-busting swap…

…but when have I ever let the silliness of others deter me?

N E V E R!

And so I announce the second edition of the Crafty Travelling Box!

*with a few extra rules to (hopefully) keep the box updated & on the move

A bit of CTB Hocus Pocus…

The Crafty Travelling Box has magicked its way through Massachusetts & is now heading off to the Netherlands!

Brilliant Barbara snagged a few vintage hankies from the CTB with plans to create a purty purse & replaced them with a couple of adorable bits n’ bobs from her own stash before sending it onto its next European adventure!  *that scissor pin is fabulous!

Here’s a quick refresher of the CTB’s trek:

Berlin, Germany to…

West Australia  –  Ohio, USA  –   Barcelona, Spain  –  Massachusetts, USA  –  The Netherlands  –  Oklahoma, USA  –  Vienna, Austria  –  P.E.I, Canada

…and back to yours truly in Berlin!

*Reminder to participants: we’d all love to keep up with the CTB’s journey so, pretty please with strawberries & lactose-free cream on top, after you’ve received the box share an update with at least one photo (or the link to your own CTB blog post if ya got one) over on facebook or twitter

buenos días from the CTB!
