yay! I recieved first so here we go with the pictures!

Ok so as  you know, I have been having a rough time...just got engaged and laid off in a two week span. Crazy time. Let me tell you, this package has been such an uplifting experience.



This is my package! the first I have gotten at my new house!!! Notice that it was wrapped in a paper bag. So eco-friendly Smiley As you can see it's a shoe box tee hee!



These are my FANTASTIC new shoes! These use my themes of Strawberry and Rococo. LOVELY interpretation. So well detailed and just beautiful Smiley



These are some strawberry washcloths that she crocheted for me! Also a little action shot in my guest bathroom! On the right is a super handy pot holder shaped like a strawberry. Both fit my themes of Oversized and Strawberry.



The next item used my theme of Strong Women and Rococo. Such detail I can't even describe. Really high level of craftsmanship on this tote bag. I can't wait to use it and watch people drool!



And last but not least a beautiful set of wine glass charms with handmade strawberry food theme shrinky dink charms. SO ADORABLE!!!! Can't wait to use these Smiley

I am super pleased with NerdyCrochetGal I can't even describe how much I love my package!

A few bonus shots for joy and love...

Yay I am so glad you liked everything. The bag was the item I forgot to heat set and then washed and then had to redo. LOL, I definitely learned a lesson there. Ha ha. Cheesy yay I am so happy you liked everything.. I have one last thing for you.. Which is not going quite as planned.. but hey, the project is evolving! LOL.

Just figured I'd give an update.

Item1: Done
Item2: Done

Top Secret Item 3: 60%


July 1st is Canada day so I'm hoping to spend the day partying and fireworking and not much crafting. But the 7th is awhile away and I'll be done by then for sure.

We both said that we only wanted items we could use. The washcloths are super soft!
