Got a friend that you don't see very often? Or maybe you just want to shower your appreciation on your close buddies? Heres some ideas of how to show them that you care... 1) Send them a card

I don't know why but this has popped into my head and I felt the need to write a blog about it (so please bear with me!)
Let me tell you a story...

I've done quite a few craft fairs since starting Ellbie Co. in 2017 but my first one was definitely the scariest - mainly because I just didn't know what to expect!
