Sorry again Belladune.  Sad


They're almost finished in the basement, all they have left is to put the toilet back together, caulk everywhere, do a couple of repairs to the trim, and put 1/4 round through-out. Point is though, that I now have a floor! Yay!

I took these yesterday morning, but I was out with my friend who is home from Nippising U for the Holidays during the day. Last night I put the images together. Therefore, I have for you this morning, Belladunes wonderfully personal package!

I gasped when I saw the bracelet and the inside of the tin. The Bracelet was based around a design my sponsor child did on my hand in Mehendi when I met her in February. She's from Tamil Nadu India.



The inside of the tin was unmistakenly painted in the design of her dress. Unfortunately when I pulled out a paper envelope from inside, it was somewhat stuck. I've tried gently wiping it with a damp cloth but I don't want to wreck the paint.



The outside box was decorated by her son, and the slidey tin is all done in sparkly things. It reminds me of fish bubbles! Shocked

I'll post a link to her new years eve items, because I'm unsure if they are NSFW or not. It's supposed to be an emergency kit for a new years eve party! I love her sense of humour.

Thanks for the wonderful package belladune, I'm so sorry it took me this long to post. I'm glad everyone had a great Christmas! Have a happy new year!


Here's another picture of what I sent Belladune, showing the full length of the scrapbook album, and the front of the tin:

My apologies for the delay, but here is the lovely tin sent to me by my partner Amalgam.

The tin closed, with it's very spotty decoration  Cheesy


The box open, with all my goodies


Here you can see a better view of the necklace.


My favorite item, the hat pin!


An adorable little sewn pin cushion. It's so tiny and cute!


Thank you Amalgam, and sorry for the delay in sending yours! I hope you like it  Smiley

I'm glad you like the tin and the treats inside. I forgot to check my mailbox today so your tin is probably in there as we speak. Tongue But rest assured I will check it in the morning and post pics ASAP. Grin
