i came home from band today and found a package waiting for me.
i was too excited to take pictures before ripping it open, but the things inside were cooler, anyway.
first of all, i want to thank staygolden for a great swap. it was her first and i hope it was a really pleasant experience for her.
now, on to the goodies.
first is an adorable trinket box, painted red and decorated with the cover art of the thai books. (the thai covers are my favorite. they're so colorful and gorgeous.)
lucky me, the box matches perfectly another jewelry box i received in a previous swap!
next is a fabulous bookmark with one of sammie's favorite quotes on it.
one of my favorites too, i might add.
this should come in handy with all of the reading i have to do in english IV AP.
i love the colors.
and i love how the braiding on the tassel is absolutely flawless.
i wish i could braid like that.
next are buttons.
these are some of the cutest buttons ever.
seriously, i love them.
especially the edward buttons.
and the jacob buttons.
and the fire and ice buttons.
oh wait.. that's all of them.
next is a pretty necklace with twilight related pendants/charms.
the big pendant is a little frame with two pictures of the cullen family from the movie cast.
i couldn't get a decent picture, but you get the idea.
and oh, how i love the last item.
i absolutely cannot wait for the stupid texas weather to get colder so i can wear the gorgeous hat she made for me.
the color and texture of the yarn are fantastic.
and the buttons are cute.
she made it by loom knitting.
(and by the way, sammie.. i learned to loom knit long before i ever learned to really knit, and i still prefer loom knitting.)
by the way, for you to assume that the last picture is in any way edited, lacking the slightest bit of authenticity, or just plain fake...
is both insulting...
and absolutely correct.
haha, kidding. just thought i'd play around with my photoshop skills.
hope you enjoyed them!
i sure did.
thanks again sammie!
can't wait until you get my package.
