Ya'll are gonna be so jealous when you see the wonderful things that atsuko crafted for me! She offered to make me a couple of pairs of earrings in exchange for a couple of pantas. Obviously, that didn't happen In addition to two pairs of awesome dangly earrings, she also made me a gorgeous beaded butterfly necklace Note how she made them in various shades of purple! She did that because amethyst is my birthstone Her workmanship is impeccable I could never do such intricate work!
Ah, but there's more atsuko also spoiled my girls Kaia and Saffy by sending them some new frocks I haven't really decided how to divvy up the dresses, but I know the girls will be thrilled to bits Oh, and matching headbands too!
Last but not least, atsuko also included a bunch of fabric and candy!! I'm not quite sure how she managed to find me some fabric that I don't already have in my stash, but she gets top marks for that! She also gets bonus points for the candy. In our conversations, I mentioned that I grew up on Smarties (sorta like M&Ms) and I missed them. Voila! They appeared in my swap package
atsuko, thanks for all the wonderful items you crafted and/or included in my swap package I love it all, and I really appreciate the time and care you took in crafting the wonderful earrings and necklace!
