You’re lucky if you have a job that is both fun and fulfilling. Some of us are even lucky enough to have transformed a passion into something we do everyday. That’s a special kind of fulfillment.
Today’s giveaway has more than one common thread; all three components of our giveaway are from creators who have chosen to chase their passion and...dried flowers. You’re probably thinking dried flowers aren’t that exciting. Well just wait till you see this!
When I first caught a glimpse of Grace Wittig’s silk scarf, I knew I had to find out the story behind it. And then I met Grace. Grace is the owner of Silk and Sumac and self admittedly she has many loves; she is a dyer, a maker, a gardener and a naturalist. Her passion is botanically dyed textiles. And if you have ever wondered what to get for that hard to buy for, person who loves nature and gardening this may be it.
Each and every one of Grace’s inspirations is hand dyed one-of-a-kind creation. She regularly works with silk, cotton and linen. In fact her latest creations are “eco-dyed” pieces which involve placing the plant material directly onto the fabric Grace leaving unique “plant prints”, like the socks in the picture. Check out Grace’s website to see the many beautiful and unique creations she has for sale, and she is more than helpful if you want to discuss a custom piece like the ribbons Grace makes for floral and bridal arrangements just for you!
And what goes better with a cool pair of socks than putting your feet up with a warm cup of tea. And I mean really good tea. Our friends, Rebecca and Maggie at Clearview Tea Company have been making some of the best blends you will find for almost ten years now. They love tea and that passion filters through in every cup. Flowers and herbs dried perfectly and robustly joined, to give you a soothing healthy break whenever you need it.
Ever thought of experimenting with dried flowers? Perfect, let's round out today's giveaway with some of the best flowers to enjoy in the garden and dried. What if Globe Amaranth, or Asters, or maybe Celosia, will inspire your next career change?
Day 3 of our 24 Days of Giveaways shares the passion. We are giving away a pair of plant print socks from Silk and Sumac, an 80g package of Ivory Cable Knit Sweater Tea from Clearview Tea Company and a $25 Gift Certificate from Stems Flower Farm for anything in the shop.
For a chance to win leave a comment below. In your message, share your passion, or what fulfills you, or dare to dream big and tell the world what you REALLY want to do full time, anything really, as long as it puts a smile on everybody’s face. EASY. This giveaway is open to anyone with a Canadian shipping address. This Giveaway is open until Sunday night December 5th at Midnight PT.

This past year I started a cutting garden and I love designing bouquets.

I am fulfilled by creating. Making things by hand, a delicious meal for my family, a new hand painted chair, a gift for a friend. It feels lucky to have had years running a creative business.

Baking is one of my passions (not the dirty dishes though)! Would love to do more of it if working in healthcare wasn’t keeping me so busy!

The pursuit of creativity is my passion. When I started to learn more about gardening, it opened my eyes to all possibilities. I realized how one can design a garden in a multitude of ways, based on colours, structure, mood, and function. It’s another form of creativity I’m yet to explore.
