Wow my partner, Maltiriel really spoiled me on package #1!
Photo of Maltiriel, her husband, pets, and locations around town. Also my letter, and postcards too:
Stationary! Oh my gosh - she did amazing for not being someone who is experiences with papercrafts. I got beautiful paisley lined paper in pink and green (my favorite colors!) and they have my name and address on them. I also got a notepad that is in the same paper but the top says "From the desk of Rachelia"! How cool is that? Then there are super-awesome envelopes with all my info printed on them, and they are lick-and stick! Beautiful insides too:
Show and Tell Items - a dishcloth made from her favorite pattern, one that resembles her grandmother's; favorite kind of chili (red); t-shirt from her favorite restaurant; the pen from her university; family recipes and prickly pear jam and candy:
Small items: Ravenclaw stamp, Ravenclaw windowcling, (handcarved Rachelia stamp pictured here, but it was stationary) sand globe, dreamcatcher pendant, chile-dusted pecans (YUM!), Guatemalan worry dolls.
Thanks so much, I love everything
