DUM DUM DUM <<< *drum roll*

I peek into the letter box and I see

!!!!!! A package..!!!!



So, I open it...!!!!
and the kitten says "I'll help, i will have this one" and runs off with the shiny silver one  Undecided Sad Lips sealed



so, after a long and eventful chase *glares at kitty*

I open everything up...!!

look at what I got...!!!!



I was like... WOW Im so lucky...!!!


close up of the SEWING roll and altoid tin revamps insides

close up of the "flat cube" pincushion and the inside of the zipper pouch (you can also see the cute brooch/pin on the zipper pouch alot better here too)

close up of the cube pincushion....

So, i was  Grin Grin Grin very much, and went to pack away all the wrapping paper and the card, and I picked up the yellow envelope from the pick when I opened it, and it felt funny, So I opened it (I hadnt opened it already cause on it wwas taped a piece of cardboard that said so it doesnt get too bent in the mail
) AND THERE WAS MORE




all the stuff Cheesy on the right, are all the gorgeous tags made out of paint sample cards (?!?!?!) they are so beautiful, i dont think I can bring myself to use them..! Sad then we have, the two pairs of earings down in the bottom left, pink and black for my more "punkish" "poser" side, and light pink and blue for my more girly side. The bracelet (which does fit) is gorgeous, fabric covered plastic beads, the cheapo ones from christmas and tied with thread, and then the two gorgeous brooches...  Kiss I love it all SO much... Cheesy

close(er) ups..!



The tags were originally in the altoids tin, but, i forgot to photograph them, oopsies..!

I dont think I forgot anything... Huh

If I did I will post it asap..!

And, I love  everything so so so so much MissMeshell..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi

I tried Typing a post to explain............

but it didnt work

so try this



Just fold the ribbon (or whatever you are using) in the direction of the arrows, and fold it over where the top "bow" parts are.... then sew a button in the middle

Hope it helps

Edit Yes the "arrow" thing is dodgy, im lazy

So, I finally got my lazy butt up and took some photo's of the glorious OTT that the felt fairy *bows down to magnificance* sent to me......

and here they are...!!!!

I opened up the package to this...!!!
A felt pouch!



Which, is absolutley gorgeous, the little girraffe applique is adorable, and eating some leaves, which are beaded on with leaf shaped beads... AND...!!! I have hoo ha's too ! hehe flower hoo ha's with a beaded (wink wink) center hehe.

Now, this alone is a great OTT, But, it felt (haha get it..?) a little bumpy, and I open it up

It came with a little card, with a Poem on it, which I couldnt get a decent shot of, and, a felted giraffe..! but this is the poem.

When you're feeling down,
and you need a little laugh,
take a peek or two
at Geoffrey the girraffe.

Smiling at his stumpy neck
Is the only thing to do.
Now you have your very own
tiny pocket zoo.

(Its so cute, it made me smile)

And now here...!!! is some great (*snort*) Pics of Geoffrey


Geoffrey laying down,


Really bad and blurry pic of him laying down..!


I love love love it soooooooooo much the felt fairy You are brilliant!

Geoffrey sits ontop of my computer so I can peek at him all the time, Im considering making him a little "cage" so i can take him with me and not get him dirty/broken/ruined.

He has come in handy..!

Thank you so much again..!

 Kiss

Elven

p.s. I have updated feedback and the first page of the swap thread too..!
