Ok so, first? I am totally LOVING that crochet hook roll - I've already wisted it. I would never have thought of a strap for stitch markers, but I was just wondering today how I could hold them in my hook roll!
Second, I received from Poppi today and everything is TOTALLY awesome! I love it all and can't wait to use each item.
My themes were
2. nintendo video games
5. blue jays and/or cardinals
Bath salts and bath bombs for my fruit theme:
The tangerine bath bombs look like they will be fun to toss in the bath, and the rose and lavender fizzy bath salts are because the bombs wouldn't set right but I'm sure they will work in just the same way. I love that there are petals in the rose! And mm they are gonna make for some nice relaxing baths I think.
A throw pillow for my birds theme and some bookmarks for my maps theme:
The pillow is fleece and the middle panel is a very pretty and subtle blue with brown birds. Some of my favorite colors, especially together. And I don't know what the pillow inside it is, Poppi, but it's like memory foam or something and so neat! The bookmarks are very attractively holding my place in the library books I'm reading right now. Other than nice thick paged graphic novels, I have no qualms about page-folding in my own books, but I don't think the library would appreciate me doing it to their books so these will be helpful. Way better than the torn bits of paper that I usually use.
The pillow also perfectly matches my couch, so here is an action shot! But not from very far away because there is a lot of clutter.
Mario herb markers for my nintendo video games theme:
My boyfriend likes these so much he wants to steal the big Mario one! I especially like the little tiny ones - the star and the bobomb and the shell, oh all of them!
When I retry an herb garden these are gonna come in very handy, I think (mine died with a big storm blew them off my balcony)!
Some sort of closeups of some of them:
And my very favorite I saved for last - an awesome brown and blue plaid apron with an embroidered robot on the pocket for my robots theme!
When the cat was sitting there I couldn't resist... so delicious... no, so really.. is this awesome or is this extremely
awesome?! It's going to come in so handy, too. (yes I am in my pajamas, it was very late!)
Look at the little guy!
There was also a pretty little card and some extra postcards Poppi's friend hand printed. Here is the cover and two of my favorites. The cat sneaking up in the last one reminds me of my little girl so much.
Thank you so much, Poppi! I seriously love everything, and I hope you like your package, too!
