My FABULOUS stalker, CraftyDeb sent me an AMAZING package! It even has a theme!
First, this beautiful reusable lunch bag!
I am trying to eat better/save money by not buying lunch every day at the mall where I work (Dairy Queen and Taco Bell for lunch does not a healthy meal make) and this is PERFECT!
It's so roomy inside!
Then, she made me all sorts of matching goodies! They are all beautiful and have embroidered stitches on them and I LOVE them
Here are two tea wallets and a cute tea coaster - I can't drink chai anymore until I find out if I'm allergic to cinnamon, so I have been drinking a lot of tea for my caffeine lately! I wanted tea wallets so much! There are also a bunch of little kitties that were peeking out of both tea wallets! (It was like those Russian dolls, just goodies inside goodies!)
Here's a shot of the inside of the other tea wallet and the tea coaster in use to show how clever it is!
THEN! A reuseable sandwich wrap and snack pouch that also match the lunch bag!
The sandwich wrap unfolded and the inside of the snack pouch with SOUR SMARTIES! I didn't even notice they were sour at first. (I told you, goodies within goodies!) CraftyDeb picked up on my love of sour candy
This amazing reusable shopping bag! It's really funny because my 12 Days of Christmas Swap partner made me a pouch from this exact fabric
I forgot to get a shot of the lining but it's really cool fabric too - You can kind of see a bit of it on the left handle. I can never have enough fabric shopping bags, I use them for EVERYTHING. I was even using one as a lunch bag until tonight
She also made me a set of four quilted placemats that match my dining room accessories (I don't have a dining room at the moment, but when I did it was these colors, and so all my dining room stuff is as well - We are hoping to move soon and have a real
) I love the fabric on the back too and had to show it off.
Each one is slightly different, here's another one
These are apparently the project that she thought I wouldn't like her first two attempts at - I'm sure I would have, but the third attempt is perfect
THEN... (Yes, there's more!)
Sprinkles and toppings for cupcakes (She thought, and I agree, that the ice cream toppings would make awesome cupcake toppings!) I had to keep from eating the Nestle ones right out of the bottle (it's been a long day...
) AND more sour candies! I don't remember what I put in my questionnaire, but those sour neon gummy worms are my absolute favorite! The skittles are quite good too
CraftyDeb also crocheted a dishcloth (that I'm going to have a hard time using because it's so nice!) and two pot holders and a hot pad (or three pot holders/hot pads...
This picture is embarassing. I didn't realize how dirty my oven was until I had a camera flash reflecting on all the water spots! These two embroidered dish towels are amazing! She almost kept them, and I understand why
But, I'm glad they made it to me because they area awesome
Our dishes are red and black and white, and I love cupcakes, and I commented about how it's hard to find red, black, and white cupcake stuff, and so she made me some!
When we move I want to do 50s diner/cupcakes in the kitchen, and so these will be perfect!
Last but not least, CraftyDeb sent me a Japanese newspaper (I love languages!), and some cat treat coupons which I thought was incredibly sweet and thoughtful! The other item is the card she send which was too cute not to photograph!
PHEW! I was WAY spoiled! CraftyDeb, you are amazing, thanks SO MUCH for all the amazing goodies!
