I finally received Package #1 from across the pond. EdelC likes to travel so of course the package she sent took a detour to go site-seeing in the Caribbean. Snorkeling I think. Off St. Johns. But it's here now with all sorts of fun postal notations! Maybe I can incorporate the package into a piece of art? Hmmm.
Of course the husband dove right into the chocolates. I told him that we had to eat them with tea, like EdelC. That didn't go over too well and "wouldn't be proper." Edel, he says thanks. And he thinks the socks are for him
Everything was wrapped in a GORGEOUS bag with a note "In Ireland there is a levy on plastic bags, so everyone uses fabric ones." Recently our home town outlawed plastic bags. There was quite an uproar but the comment that kept coming up was... If Ireland can do it, we can do it. Hah! So EdelC, thank you very very much for the fabric bag. Problem is that it's too beautiful to put produce in, so I think it's going to be my quilting bag.
And a close-up of the famous EdelC flamingos for y'all to enjoy!
But wait! There's more. Wholey guacamole with cilantro and garlic!
Heh heh heh. Did I get spoiled or what??? Earrings.
And goodies! I love goodies! Piles of fabric scraps, buttons, lace trims and a piece of coral (probably from snorkeling).
And if that isn't enough... Have you all seen Edel's Featured Project of the linocut? And the funny printing method of using her car to roll over the make-shift printing press? Not only is she featured here in Craftster, but rumor has it that MythBusters is going to put her in the next duct tape episode.
Eat your hearts out fellow Craftsters! I have an EdelC original featured project! And it fits!
But wait! That's not all
Not only can this girl stamp, sew, print, make cards, and take on 20,000 bees. Check this out! It's been on my wrist and it ain't coming off!
EdelC - you are amazing! I want to hang out with you and drink tea and eat chocolates and make things. Any plans to move to this side of the pond?
