FINALLY posting pics! Sorry it's taken forever, I'm in the middle of moving cross-country. ick. Anyway, here are the goodies!!
The group shot:
So many fun things! There was a letter explaining everything on some sweet stationary in an even sweeter envelope made from a map. ademareej's "about me" bit was a really neat free-form sketch that had lots of different elements representing different things about her- I thought it was a really neat way to express/explain a bit of herself.
There were also some gummy cherries- soooo good! I had never seen them before. They're her favorite candy, and now they're some of my favorites, too.
I also received a Red Sox PEZ dispenser which is just AWESOME. yay throwback toys.
Also included were some local newspapers which have been super fun to read. I collect children's books, and ademareej gave me not one, not two, but THREE children's books! They are all super great and make awesome additions to the collection. There were some bits and bobs like pencils and THE COOLEST KEY HOLDER EVER. You can see it in the group shot- it's an owl [one of my favorite animals]. Plus other cool stuff like...
an awesome cotton crocheted washcloth and shower puff. I love them! I had totally been thinking about making one of these puffs, but I've been too lazy. :p thanks!
A sweet little box to keep my bits and bobbles in- I really needed something like this, I have little things EVERYWHERE all over my dresser, so this is perfect for that.
a handmade stamp of an elephant! a) I <3 elephants. b) I love hand-made stamps (I just started making them, too! I made the stamps that I used to make ademareej's wall art). Yay! I love it. I think I'm going to use it to make some stationary.
Some AWESOME upcylced coasters!!! They're made from strips of magazines. too cool.
Thanks for everything ademareej, you're an awesome swap partner.
I can't wait to give/receive the next package!
