Oh. My. Gawd. I just picked up the package from craftydeb...I'm speechless! What a wonderful package!! My tyke's not here yet, so no action shots until later, but WOW! She totally nailed it on so many levels: bargains, personality, and especially the projects. Did I mention what a great package she has
I was giggling at the post office and wanted to just rip it open there...but I managed to make it home before carefully opening the package...okay, only because it was taped so well that I needed the kitchen shears!
Now that I'm writing this out, I'm wishing I'd taken pictures of the layers in the box instead of removing items and then taking pictures.
First up, a tiara-to-be! The embroiderd star - craftydeb gave detailed instructions about how to attach it to a headband so I can wear it proudly! It totally reminds me of wonderwoman! yowza!
Then: freecycle fabric for my uglytotes! I make grocery/book totes out of sad, unfortunate fabric that would otherwise be clogging the landfill - usefull from useless. There's enough here for at least eight bags!! There's also a *huge* bag full of ribbons and lace. Huge. Full
Lots of loot for my tyke, too!
There are empty spice jars and an oj bottle for my tyke's kitchen! She will go bonkers over this stuff! Oh, I almost forgot: there are seeds in one of the jars!! We are so going to have some gorgeous plants!
And a book full of train stickers! Plus, as you can see, the cutest little appliqued train on a t-shirt for L!! (action shots soon) It is so flipping cute! The weather here is totally dreary today, so there's no way to get a good picture yet, but this is so *cute*!
Then, the piece de resistance (pardon my (poor) french)! This book is just so unbelievable! It' a fabric book with a super cute train theme! Here are all the pages:
You cannot believe how cute and colorful this is. It's just too cute! L is so into trains -- she will be beside herself. I cannot wait for her to see this!
My poor photography "skills" in no way do justice to the awesome work! Thank you craftydeb!
QB, receiver of *the* *best* swap package *ever*
I simply cannot get that book picture to flip. gah.
