This might not seem like much, but..

My wife is the main producer of stock for our business, she makes 90% of the stuff we sell from scratch as such she is always on craft websites and forums getting ideas and inspiration.. a lot of these are in the US or Canada.

A few weeks back now, My wife commented on a thread that a woman had posted saying how much she liked something this woman made, It was a wreath thats made up of crayons in a circle with card cutouts of children, and school items (Books, School Buses, Apples, A+ etc) each character or item is then decorated, and then crystals are applied, bits of glitter it is big thing to make and its a gift you wouldnt make for anyone due to time effort and cost.. but for a good teacher say..

but the desired results are simply amazing brilliant..

So my wife commented and asked if this woman could send the SVG files (files used for vector based art printing and a Cricut cutting machine files) and this woman agree but said that she would prefer to send a usb stick as the files were in the GB's and uploading wouldnt be possible.

My wife offered to pay for delivery and packaging but the woman refused and said she would be happy to do it.

Well today about 5 weeks later a parcel turned up, a big parcel! and to our surprise not only has this woman sent the files as promised but she has sent a complete set of all the materials all cut and and decorated ready to be assembled and not just to make one, but she has sent enough to make about 20! To top it off she has included a home made Canadian Flag and a note wishing us all a Merry Christmas..

Such a lovely surprise from a stranger..

this is an example, but imagine it far more eclectic and and the cutouts far more decorated.. Ill try and show the actual wreath later, but its on my wifes laptop right now.

Just so you can understand as well, these aren't just some print outs and cut,

each colour is a separate part which is cut and aligned and glued, with decorations added like crystals etc.. we have hundreds, it must of took her so much time to make them.. and they are all of super high quality too.
