I received from my partner, Sugarmaestro, today!
As most of you know by now, I am unable to take or post photos, but I can leave one heck of a great description, so that's what I'm going to do now!
-A note with the swap package written on kawaii-style stationery that happened to have a deer on it. Sugarmaestro drew a Santa hat on the deer! It made me giggle!
-I have participated in this swap for several rounds now, and also have no storage space anymore
so I asked that in lieu of a stocking, if my partner could make me drawstring gift bag(s) that I could use for gifts this holiday season. Boy did she deliver! The first bag is a LARGE one, with magenta ribbon to tie it closed and a large graphic flower print in several bright colors. She happened to keep the large orange flower featured on the front and back of the bag
so I'm thinking I might just have to keep this one for myself!
-Two green felt topped, red button and red drying cloth, with a lace ribbon across dish towels to hang from your oven handle. So festive, well made, and much needed!
-One medium sized drawstring bag, this one in a maroon and cream small leaf print with a cream colored ribbon to tie it; and small maroon drawstring bags with lace on the bottoms of them. Again, very much needed...I give gifts to a LOT of people!
-Sugarmaestro must have studied my Pinterest. On my 'How Beautiful!' board, I have a TON of sea glass pinned, and boy did she deliver on this item: A small glass jar with a shell glued on top to keep the most beautiful little pieces of seaglass inside! I have never seen so perfectly rounded pieces of seaglass, nor do I have any yellow seaglass in my collection-till now!
-A green metal tin which I will either use for storage myself or use it to put a gift in for someone else.
-A box with red glitter and a bow to use to put a gift in.
-A lanyard in bright orange and turquoise beads. It is quite bright and it made me giggle, b/c I work as a preschool teacher, and after naptime, it is quite difficult to wake up some of the students. I might just wave this lanyard in front of them to wake them up! Again, it's a much wanted and needed item.
I'm so glad that I stayed home today and stalked the postman! Thank you sugarmaestro!
