I received a purpleicious box of wonderment from Isikkahjai today! She really 'got' me - everything is so wonderful - thank you SO much! This is going to be a pic heavy post - so some of them I will add as thumbnails!
Firstly I'll show you the bought items she sent me
Beads!!!! (I LOVE beads!) These are actually a lot more purple than the pic shows - I could not get light / colour right today
A great big heart pendant - I love this - I have so many heart shaped beads etc - and this is so BIG! I can't wait to use it for something
on the 'big' theme - this massive lobster clasp and another pretty pendanty type thing. A necklace IsikkahJai crafted for me has one of these pendants on - so I am going to use this one to make a matching bracelet
Pretty fabric trims
lots of purple letter stickers:
Pretty purple wool to make a scarf (though I may use it to make a fabulously loopy bag!)
Then I got some pretty pebbles / shells / sea glass to start off my collection
Right - onto the exciting stuff - the millions of crafted items she sent me! I thought I had gone OTT with her - but she has made me SO many things - my parcel now seems substandard!!!
Pretty embroidered tiny skull hoopla - it is so small and her stitches are so perfect - I am envious!
there was a stand in the box - which I think was to hold the hoopla - if not, it is now - it is the perfect size!
Some awesome notecards with embroidered sign language on them - these are AWESOME!!!!
I need help though! I know the alphabet in BSL - which I don't think this is! I think the bottom two say love and peace - but I would love to know what the top two say?
They even had pretty decorated envelopes
My very first Teesha Moore Patch (I think?) Which really made me chuckle I will be sewing this onto a bag I think
S is for....Sarah
A very pretty necklace with one of the pendants I showed you earlier - looking forward to making my matching bracelet
I have wanted a purple Tree Of Life pendants so much for sooooooooo long - and Isikkahjai sent me one! I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with this - I put it on as soon as I had taken a photo and haven't taken it off since - I LOVE it!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
this pendant was attached to the closure of the Tree Of Life pendant - but it is far too pretty to be hidden behind me - so I am thinking I may repurpose it into a more visible pendant!
and lastly - the piece de resistance - a stencilled hoody - with a wonderful purple dragon - this has also been on since I got it - and will be lived in from now on I think!
and because I love it so much - a couple of action shots - I NEVER do action shots - so you are privileged!!!
(note the TOL!)
I was admitted to hospital last Sunday - and didn't get out until Thursday - yesterday I slept all day - so have had a craptastic week and was feeling really down in the dumps - this package has REALLY cheered me up.
Thanks again - so much! XXX
