prepare to be jealous!!!!! Not only did I get the most amazing, thoughtful, kindhearted, spoiling parcel in stuffie history (if not craftster history) but I had am amazing partner who has become a very good friend!!!!! This was Homemademama's first swap - and let me tell you, she rocks!!!! I honestly can't tell you how blown away I was by the spoilage in this package - as well as the quality of her crafting! I was going to say I received a pile of Pooh (will become clear later) but it was such an amazing package I can't even bring myself to joke!!!!
Onto pics I think before I gush toooooooo much! (but you'll soon understand why I AM gushing!)
This is everything altogether:
Firstly the spoilage - before i put these pics up I ought to let you into a bit of back story - my fiance atm is going through treatment for lymphoma (cancer) he's finished his chemo and is preparing to spend June in hospital undergoing a bone marrow transplant - that's not a ploy for sympathy but will explain a few of the presents
a beautiful photo album that's for filling 'with many happy memories'
4 clip beads (2 of each of these designs) for an 'unnamed project' will have to think of something really cool to do with them cos I love them!
two books - one of which is a fantastic crafty one with some beautiful projects in! Can't wait to try some of the projects out! and one to read that homemademama read recently and thoroughly enjoyed homemademama says this is for keeping me company on my hospital visits - however i've got nothing to read atm - and having read the back of it sincerely doubt i'm going to be able to keep it that long - am already contemplating starting it tonight - it just seems soooo my cup of tea!!!
a bag of black tea lights for "a sexy night in"
A Twilight bracelet that she saw on my wist - which I'm already wearing and loving!
and perhaps most thoughtful
some Arsenal cufflinks for my fiance! Homemademama says that she wanted to bring us something to look forward to - so knowing we're engaged to be married sent them for him to wear on our wedding day - how kind is that?
As if that wasnt enough - i also got my stuffies - not just one, but two of them!!!!!
a mouse / rat as i collect rats
who has a pouch for looking after the tiniest, most perfect, Pooh bear i've ever seen!
everything was wrapped up in the pretty purple paper you can see in the photo's - I'm sorry I was too eager to pause and take photos of the wrapping - cos it was so lovely! I felt like it was my birthday!!!!
I so hope i havent missed anything - there was so much there it was hard to keep track of!!!!!
thank you, thank you, thank you homemademama!!!!!!
