EEEEEEEE! I GOT A RIDICULOUSLY FANTASTIC PACKAGE FROM JUNIPERL13!
I have to confess that I actually said "EEEEEEEEE!" while opening all of its goodness.
All the wonderfulness at once (why are my pictures always showing up so small?!):
I'd wished for altoids tins and a hobo bag, and not only did she send me three little and one big altoid tin (whoo! giant tin!) and TWO AMAZING HOBO BAGS, but I also scored:
-a bag of all kinds of buttons I'm already picturing crafts for
-a bag of assorted ribbons (some in bows! with rosettes!)
-beautiful fairy postcards, If you're afraid of the Dark, remember the night rainbow
book, and typewriter key letter stickers! (pictured in inset)
-all sorts of trinkets, perfect for assemblage pieces, including an adorable sea turtle charm! (right inset)
-GOLD PEARL EX powder. My polymer clay is going to be SO MUCH MORE BLING THAN YOURS.
And of course, close-ups of the two fabulous bags:
This is the bigger of the two. I'd mentioned my favorite color was grass green and this basically embodies it! The lining is a bright green with lighter streaks, and there's grass on the front! I'd also mentiond that I'd like the bag to be big enough to hold a novel, and I don't know if you can see that well, but it holds BOTH a novel AND my knitting with room to spare! Plus those buttons on the front actually hide a snap closure.
This is so cute and snuggly that I just want to eat it all up. It's made out of soft green fleece and lined with scrumptious green fabric. The green is just gorgeous, and there's the most darling elasticized lace-trimmed pocket inside. It also holds a novel or my knitting perfectly. I am in absolute awe of her sewing skills, too--I wish I had a better camera so I could show you her perfect edges and seams. Beautiful!
I'm sorry I've gone on and gushed for so long, but I'm just so happy and grateful to Ms. Juniper for making all my crafting wishes come true. Thank you so so much. I am the luckiest girl in the world. *skips off to craft things instead of studying for her exams*
