I received two incredibly awesome packages from Dragonflower today! Why two? Well, she forgot to send a note along with the first (main) package, and so sent another with some "extras". How sweet is that?
First, I was greeted by this package decked out with Lily Munster (my all-time favorite tv character):
Inside were three wrapped items, and a bunch of fantastic extras. How gorgeous is that roving? And because my picture-taking skills are that of a toddler on a roller coaster, you can't see the beautiful embroidery floss very well. She also included some beautiful papers (I have a debilitating paper addiction), lovely star sequins, and was thoughtful enough to send me breakfast in the form of delicious chocolates!
I was not prepared for the awesomeness that I was about to unpack. First, the necklace. As soon as I saw this I snatched off my favorite necklace that I wear almost every day and put this one on. It is way better than the one on my wishlist she based it off of (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65137560/valentines-day-sale-multi-layered-3-in-1
). The rosette she made is removable and can be worn anywhere else. Freakin awesome, right?
The next item may be my favorite thing to come into our home this year. I was speechless at not only her skill, but the thoughtfulness of it. I asked for a needlebook, and she gave me one. But not just any needlebook, one that incorporated my love of Frankenstein. This is just absolutely genius. Look how many pages she packed into it! It's leather and felt AND it has a pocket in the center. Dude!
And here it is living with all my favorite things:
So at that point I'm happy as a bird with a fry, but there's still one more thing to unwrap. Behold, absolutely stunning woodburned spoons! I love fairy tales, with Red Riding Hood and the Little Mermaid being two of my favorites. And what did she burn into the spoons? Let's see...
Notice the Big Bad Wolf peering around that tree...
The little Mermaid, transforming:
Her talent and creativity are mind-blowing. But wait! What was in that second package of "extras"?
A Lily Munster tote and Munsters magnets. Seriously. My face was stunned.
There are no words for how happy Dragonflower made me. She is just the most amazing chick this side of anywhere. You rock, Dragonflower!
