Now it's my turn to post the lovely items I received from crappiefisher!
This was crappiefisher's first swap and she did an AMAZING job!! She was really tuned in to my likes/dislikes and the end result was fabulous.
As I opened the box I was met with a beautifully-made messenger bag with a picture featuring my beverage of choice, cafe con leche
. This is perfect for carting around my school books!
The inside has floral print, and the whole item is extremely well made. Denise, you are a much better seamstress than myself
Please be assured that is my favorite part of the package!!
Here is an adorable little book made out of recycled coffee cup sleeves! Crappiefisher told me that she found this kit on etsy. It has inspired me to make my own book
She also made me a picture frame in a rich, chocolately color. It's decorated with coffee beans and has the phrase, "A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well-spent" in 4 different languages. This is perfect for me because I'm a Spanish major, linguistics minor who's also studying Italian (hence a word nerd!):
We were on a similar wavelength considering we both made each other boxes! My coffees can now rest easy inside a box decorated with the word for "coffee" in several languages:
In addition to all of these homemade goodies, my partner also included coffee-themed stitch markers, 3 types of coffee ("Foglifter," Costa Rican, and Hazelnut), after-coffee cinnamon breath mints, and chocolate-covered espresso beans (that have already been sampled, yuuuum)!
Here are some of the store-bought goodies along with funky, humorous coasters and a coffee sleeve. All of my suitemates and I will put these to good use!

I hope you don't mind but I wanted to post another picture of the tea box I sent you, I was so proud of it!!
And here are a close-up of the cards. I can't believe you thought that they were store-bought!
(I take that as a compliment) Perhaps I can
sell some on etsy!Thank you SO much, crappiefisher! You did a wonderful job
