Hey everyone!!! Grin Here's everything I sent to my awesome partner, Javastain!


Everything together...


Polymer clay "coffee beans" stitch markers!


A polymer clay "coffee cup" charm that she can put on her jacket or anywhere to display her love for coffeeeee! Smiley


I didn't make these, but I've had them for a long time! I found them at a thrift store in Louisiana a couple years ago, so I sent some to Javastain. The inside says the When, Where, What's for a coffee party or gathering. I think they're really cute!


Black purse with a coffee cup, and embroidered steam!


And lastly, here's 2 teatowels that I embroidered from my favorite "Aunt Martha" patterns. I handwashed them in hot water (completely forgetting that they might shrink a little!) so they dried looking a little puckered Undecided At least my oven/stove got cleaned for this mini-photoshoot! LOL Cheesy

Ok, I just did a double triple take, I coulda sworn I posted pics and a gushing review of my goodies... the photos are in my photobucket album and everything!!! I think I need to up my meds...
Anyway, this was a super package I received! I love everything! I am so torn about the towels, I LOVE LOVE LOVE them, and I worry about putting them in my kitchen... both MIL and hubby have a bad habit of grabbing the first thing they see (including good bath towels) when there's a spill... grrr... or a muddy dog... double grrr..... although I shouldn't complain too much because at least they are willing to clean right? Ah, I do need more meds... Smiley
Everything was so well done, vagina star, I really love the goodies. I can't wait to try the stitch markers, I have never used them before, and at first inspection I thought they would make fantastic earrings and a pendant!!! I might have to do that, make them removable, and that way I'll always have a stitch marker with me right?!?
And a girl can never have too many totes... I want to use this one as my take home bag, I get my free pound of coffee a week from work, and I always take a paper bag... now I have my coffee specific bag!!! YAY! thanks!!! I LOVE EVERYTHING!!!

I'm glad you like everything, I tried to make most of the items that I made the first time I sent it but I didn't have some of the same stuff. I was so nervous that it wouldn't arrive and I'd have to send a third time!

Here's some pictures:


a coffee bean covered photo holder, a monster/coffee painting, a coffee cup sleeve and some coffee soap!


Some coffee bean napkins, some christmassy coasters, coffee scented candles, coffee lip balm, a coffee bean decorated incense holder and coffee scented incense. And (my favourite) Kicking Horse Coffee (http://kickinghorsecoffee.com/) my favourite coffee.


a coffee inspired beaded pendant and an embroidered touque!

very wonderful coffee items!!  I have lots of adopted craftster "daughters"; I might need to adopt you as my craftster "son", ha  ha

I especially love your little paintings and the hat!!  What a clever adaptation of the tree of life--ha ha--

wow vaginastar!!  I am so glad you posted!!  It would have been a shame to miss all of the coffee goodies that javastain had received!  I remember that she mentioned them, but we never got pics!! YAY for you!!  Those tea towels are absolutely the best work...

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.
