Here's the contents of my whimsical package from Patti M. I had to scan it as I couldn't find my camera so I hope everything shows up ok.
We are both paper crafters so she sent me lots of things I can use for my ATCs, Chunky Pages and other paper crafts. The "jars" were zip-lock bags with pictures of jars on them - to save on shipping costs from USA to Australia - and it's amazing how much she managed to fit in the mailer.
Jar #1 featured beautiful vintage images which Patti printed out on vellum using images from her collection - this is a great idea for a crafted item. I absolutely love these and can't wait to use them for my papercrafts.
Jar #2 contained some exotic yarn, a curly shoelace, & 3 star necklaces. I've also scanned the bag with the jar picture on it.
Jar #3 contained heaps of charms - lots of Roman coins, some hearts, leaves and other great items. I particularly love the little cards. The charms came wrapped in sparkly floral tissue paper in a very pretty red & gold bag - which I forgot to photograph.
Jar #4 contained an American flag pin, a gold head (didn't scan very well), a Sportz angel pin, and mini gel pens. And some very sweet miniature musical instruments.
Jar #5 contained shrinky dinks that Patti M made. The top row is vintage images and the bottom row are hand painted flowers -there's a carnation, a daisy and a sunflower. (Good stalking Patti - I LOVE flowers)
Jar #6 contained some very whimsical flowers, fairies, crowns and a leprecaun, a skeleton clip, a pair of sunglasses, a green foiled star, 2 flat marbles and one round one, a reusable "Fun button", the teeniest little pack of coloured pencils and a very cute little teddy.
And finally some loose whimsies which were not in the jars:
A "Grow Me" hippie girl, a Celebrate 2000 bubble blowing pendant, a wand "so all your projects turn out magical", a nail art kit which has teeny sparkles for ATCs etc, and a card.
Patti forgot to put a couple of items in the package so I will post photos of those when they arrive.
Thanks for everything Patti M!
I'm looking forward to the next round.
