i received a sweet package from mcbenno chock full of yummy goodness
as soon as i opened the box i was greeted with a warm vanilla cookie smell...where is that coming from??
all packed up...
first i found these stitch markers that i had wisted
they look wonderful, jenni - even better than the ones i wisted, truly. i have already used them in 2 projects and they are great! they don't catch on the yarn at all like some of my others. these have quickly become my favorite new knitting accessory
then i found the source of that fantastic smell....
2 sugar cookies made of felt with lots of little bead sprinkles!! yummmm
these are so damn cool and they really smell delicious.
i'm not sure where to put them though...they're so pretty that i want to be able to keep them somewhere visible (you know, not inside a drawer or under the seat in my car where i'd normally keep a sachet)....any suggestions??
next i found some fun little candy toys
a sticker book, double bubble pencils, and a really cool glitter ball that my friend has already tried to steal lol
also, that really awesome cupcake card is made by eye_on_sparrow - very very pretty!!
mcbenno also made me this pretty little jewelry box
and look at the top - as she pointed out, it really looks like cherry pie!
and then i opened it to find another spectacular craft - a gorgeous necklace inspired by one of my wists
don't know if you can tell in this picture, but there is a strawberry in a plastic ball attached. i <3 this detail and how the hell did she know i love strawberries?!?!?!
as if that wasn't enough, she also made me this t shirt (it's sort of big, but that gives me my next project of altering it yay!)
and to top it off, some candy:
thank you so much, mcbenno - i was spoiled in this swap.
jennicat, thanks so much for hosting - i really had a blast and i'm glad you convinced me to join way back in the beginning
