I received my package from Hawkeyes_girl! She really spoiled me! I requested altar decorations for Samhain, a mask, wall decorations for the 4 elements, and well I don't want to give it away so you'll just have to wait and see...!
First a picture of everything all wrapped up...I love when I get to unwrap. It is so fun and exciting like it's my birthday.
I started unwrapping and look what I found...cute little pumpkins for my altar! She made them out of a sweater and knitted? the top. That reminds me! A lot of the items she made had materials that she upcycled. That is totally awesome and really helps the environment!
Next thing I opened was a bag of cinnamon smelling pumpkin cutouts. They made the whole box of goodies smell really good.
Next is 2 pairs of homemade "footsies" for my daughter and I. They are really soft and warm and my daughter was crazy happy about receiving something. You can even see her feet in some of the photos because she is taking off her shoes to get ready to put them on. I must have forgotten to take a pic of mine. They are blue.
Next, she sent me some beautiful pressed leaves to put on my altar, some poprocks which my daughter totally stole from me, and this elixir/potion kit.
So, I have to admit...sometimes I get the directions mixed up mid-ritual so I asked for some wall decorations for the four elements to help me out. This is what she sent.
I've had a thing for those tree of life pendents and guess what Hawkeyes made me! A Freya's necklace version. It is so beautiful. She also made me this lovely charm bracelet.
I really needed a mask for this Halloween and intuitively Hawkeyes_girl made this mask. It is blue and green and has peacock feathers. Which are my fave colors and fave bird!
I told you she spoiled me...there's more!
I love those ritual kits at my favorite newage store but they are like $40 so I asked Hawkeyes if she could make me one. She came up with a Samhain ritual that she wrote herself and it came with a bag of ritual items! It's very beautiful and I can't wait until Samhain to try it out!
Last but not least, she made made me a altar cloth with a crescent moon.
I wanted to show you before and afters of my altar. Pardon the "mess" on the before. I had purchased some new items and the Mystic Fest and they were haphazardly laid about.
Now, here is after I put all of my new goodies from Hawkeyes out. Doesn't it look great and festive!
Thank you so much Hawkeyes_girl!
