Now for the flipside of this pairing ...
I was so humbled when I received my package yesterday from TwistedRedhead. Every item is so classy and elegant. She was so generous and is a very skilled crafter. I was blessed to have been paired with her, and I would be thrilled to be partnered with her again.
On to craftalicious goodness!
Decoupaged box (which has already found a home in my built-in bookcase):
Handmade cards (the red one is my absolute fav, and I'm glad she wrote on it, so I won't be able to give it to someone else
Origami ornaments, handmade book/journal (she actually made a book!), glass bead earrings (I think she even made the beads) and a beaded star ornament
Everything (excluding pliers) that I need to begin beading (which I had expressed an interest in learning) -- Beads, jump rings, clasps, wire, earring wires, etc. and a beading instruction book
Thank you so much TwistedReadhead! You were the most amazing swap partner!
On another note ... I have a 50% off today-only coupon from Michaels, and I am going to use it to buy beading pliers. Yippee!!!
