Ohhhh boy, I received from miss Pearmaid today! She is FABULOUS!
I feel so spoiled!
I couldn't wait long enough to take a picture of the package, but it was biiiiiig! I was so excited! A lot of my photos are a little washed out, though, because my new computer doesn't work with my photoshop, so I couldn't fix it. :/ sorry guys. All the cute little notes are a mint green color.
A necklace, which I couldn't get decent colors on, but which is soooo cute-- It's a cupcake chef necklace! It's got a little pan, cookbook, little pink frosted cupcakes, a pastry bag...
Here's a cupcake pincushion, sporting some cupcake pins!
detail shot of the pins
The pins came in this:
A pencil roll, with, as the little note says, "spaces for pens, pencils, calculator, etc".
here's the inside
And a very cute paperweight
And inside, there were these adorable glass rocks with cupcakes and polka dots and glitter on them!
And a mini-pincushion:
Here's some lovely cupcake-print fabric, with the print along both long edges. However, unlike the picture, it's not white, it's a really pretty periwinkle blue.
I desperately wanted resin-and-sprinkle stuff, and ohhhh boy, did I ever get what I wished for!
A resin and sprinkle cell phone charm. I'm getting a cell phone, and this is going to be the first thing it receives!
Resin and sprinkle necklace, with a little poly-clay cupcake in it
Resin and sprinkle heart-shaped ring. OH how I love this.
A fabulous cupcake bucket bag!
To give you an idea of how big this is, the circumference of the fullest part is 45 inches, and let me count what's in here...
All the fabric that my gifties were wrapped in, a big plastic bag, a tank top, two night shirts, a sweater, a hoodie, five pairs of shorts, and five pairs of pajama pants. Phew! It is a huuuge bag. I think I'm gonna bring it to college in the fall so I have something cute to carry my clothes to the laundry in.
Here's the ribbon around the top:
And here is a recipe book. Let me tell you, Miss Pearmaid is just the most thoughtful person! I am allergic to milk, and I put that under my allergies in the questionairre. And my wonderful partner made me a book of milk-free cupcake recipes! Each page is painted, and I couldn't resist putting every page in here. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Thank you so much, Pearmaid! You were a great swap partner!
