Yay!  I received my package from SapphireMoon today and it is awesomeness!  I cannot tell you how happy I am with what she sent.  I'm still giddy.  My son thinks I'm a nerd because I made him take pictures, but he was excited that he got a box of gum in the package.

Please forgive me for the fuzziness of the pictures, but I realized that my camera has a couple scratches across the lens or something that makes everything slightly fuzzy.  Anyway, here are the pictures!

This is what I opened and found!  I opened the thank you card first and put it back in the box to take the picture.  SapphireMoon included a couple yummy extras!  Swedish Fish (my favorite), M&Ms, and gum for my kiddo along with a sparkly bangle.

Here is the whole package! 

This is the gorgeous apron she made me.  I adore the fabric and the cut of it, and the great pockets!  Once you put it on, you don't really want to take it off again.  You can kind of see the wonderful necklace she made me as well. 

This is the back of the apron.

A close up of the necklace.  The chain is silver and it is long!  I love the color and bead choices she made.  And it jingles, awesome!

The dangly bracelet!  It's beautiful, and I love glass beads. 

The corduroy shoulder bag!  I mentioned that, while I'm not a purse person, I have been carrying around several bags with work and craft stuff and I needed something more organized.  So she made this wonderful thing with lots of pockets.  She even included a couple pens and a wrist thing to attach keys to.  I'm so giddy!  I think this should definitely help cut back the amount of crap I carry around, and it should all fit in one bag. 

A new wallet and essentials bag.  The wallet is wonderful.  I found a pocket on the outside after I took this picture and it's currently in my pocket right now.  I love the dragonfly on the zipped corduroy bag.  Beautiful!

Thank you so much, SapphireMoon.  You have really spoiled me.

Wahoo!!  I was SO hoping the apron would fit well and that the bag would work out well.  The apron looks SO great on you!  MUCH better than it looked on me when I tried it on after I made it Smiley  If I had remembered to take pics of everything other than the dangle bead bracelet...I would post them...but I'm a 'tard and forgot  Tongue  I left the strap on the bag SUPER long, so I hope it's not TOO long, or can easily be modified if it is.  I wanted to embellish the coroduroy messenger...but was not sure what to put on there that would not be overpowering or just look 'off' if you used it as a regular bag for work...like some skull dude or leopard hearts or some craziness!  I would've put another dragonfly, but I didn't have a larger one...hence the little one making it on the zipper pouch instead Smiley  Glad you love it all!!

I knotted up the bag strap to make it fit a bit better, but I'd rather have it long than short.  As for the embellishment, it's a perfect place for me to put my buttons!  My current (or old bag, I guess), has pretties on it that I don't like covering up with my buttons.  But they will look perfect on the new bag with space for the collection to grow. Smiley

I love it all, thank you so much!

Wow, great package! That apron looks so good on you! And the bag and wallet and little pouch are just awesome.

In the end, only kindness matters.
