So I received my terrific package today from Velvet Rose, who was spot-on perfect in choosing for me!
We are both papercrafters and so she sent me a box of awesomeness- fellow papercrafters prepare for the jealousy!!
1) The box- we chose to exchange small packages to keep the shipping overseas (US>AU) to a minimum, and she still managed to find a box that actually fit in a mailing envelope! She decorated it in a beautiful vintage theme-


2) The collection inside-


3) All strewn about-


4) The first three pouches- all contained punched items and tags-some beautiful punched flowers in great spring/summer colors, a mini tag ring, a set of tags made of London map paper, Paper trees which are made of a great textured paper- gonna be fun to color these., and some fabric squares and ribbons-



5) The next three pouches- chip board elements and paper cut outs of vintage items- quite an assortment!


6) A few more pouches and loose items- some teeny rhinestones, a wyoming flip book, slew of paper scraps (never enough paperscraps for us!), and the cutest mini bug cutouts-



7)Some of the handcrafted items and extras- two altered matchboxes, a handmade notepad (beautiful colors), a mini alphabet set, handmade magnet in coordinating colors, and a miniature tropical bird painting made with real feather accents- so neat!-


Cool- Inside those matchboxes- so cool!


9) A few of my favorites-

Oh I love that box. I am going to suggest again. When Whimsies 6 rolls around I think we should do a contest on the best "jar" I would be willing to do the prize and take myself out of the running.
The "jars" this time have been amazing. Love that fish.  Wink

Behind every great crafter is a kitteh, waiting to eat patterns, sprawl on fabric, and attack knitting.
