The bar has been raised...just check this out....
Details are from a PM I sent Apriljane this afternoon...She rocks as a swap partner...and ROYALLY
My little man helped me open Apriljane's treasure box of fun today! WOW!
It really felt like my birthday as I opened the box...guessing 'what's in here'...simply amazing!
My boy loves the 'where's waldo' game with the scroll (he calls it a treasure map),
and I think he's claiming the trading cards and the circus lion....
and he also had a tremendous time throwing the tissue paper up in the air!
(added bonus fun in the packaging you weren't anticipating!)
I have great plans for the patches...mounting them to a board and framing them...Apriljane has got great painting skills!
The pin cushion is going to keep me company in my computer cabinet....
...he might follow me around the house...I hate to think of him all alone when I'm not using the computer!
The message board Apriljane made is just perfect to keep voodoo indy and me company at the computer too...I just have to find a way to hang it in there...I think the thumbtacks are shrink plastic.
A notebook with the cool collage & painted panels inside. This is perfect for all my little henscratch notes...I have a box of 'important things' written on post its, gum wrappers, and junk mail envelopes....finally I can get that organized!
The bookmark rocks...I love sparklies and it didn't even occur to me to do something with 'diamonds'....and the earrings...love those too...I've had them in for 4 hours now and my ears still don't itch!
Thanks for that...because they're too cool to not wear them with my sensitive ears!
I'm going to pin the pin on the most awesome craft bag this side of the Ohio River!
detail: this is way cooler in real life...photo doesn't do it justice!
And the bonus matching snap close bag rocks too...
I love it when I can keep my projects separate like that ....and when anyone asks me where I got it from...I'm going to say, Have you heard of Craftster...well, Apriljane is the coolest swap partner around!
She really went overboard with the spoilage!
I appreciate every stitch, brushstroke and Apriljane's genuine creativity!
Isn't she amazing?!!!
