I'm very sorry to onthinice
for not posting pictures of my lovely swap package any sooner.. I promise it doesn't mean I'm any less grateful, jutst that I'm swamped at the moment!
So! Feast your eyes you little September craft-heads.. this package is a killer!
The whole thing (minus the candycorn- which had already been abducted by my tounge- not even 10 minutes after I'd opened the package! I've never had it before alright!)
Also there are some little fairy and dragonfly charms and closures (onthinice works at a bead store- what a dream come true!), I love them! They are completely my style.
Oh.. there's the little customs letter too.. telling me that they had opened it but not stolen any of my presents.. yay!
A close-up of the lovely handmade soap, nagchampa scented!
A pincushion! It's adorable and I needed one too!It's made from felt and has lots of lovely knotting as detail- beautiful!
Two cup cozies.. I think I may give one to my boy when we are reunited (hopefully in Jan next year!) after 8ish months! We can be a matching set!
And my most favourite thing last- my very own swap journal! At last!
onthinice made this using a book-binding technique called "secret Belgian binding".
It even includes paper that is 25-30 years old from when her aunty was a maths teacher! It's the yellow paper featured in the pic below.
Thankyou so much onthinice- everything you maybe was so expertly done! You put so much thought into the package and it wasn't even your birthday month! Everything (especially the swap journal) is perfect!
