I received from EdelC! The family oohed and ahhed over everything, it was a lot of fun!
I'm not going in any particular order, so here we go:
This one fell into several categories: favorite fashion accessory/something sentimental and a favorite craft supply - this beautiful bag! EdelC did not make the bag, but received it from someone else and is sharing it with me, I am a lucky girl!!
Something related to reading - a shirt based on her favorite children's book, which happens to also be one of MY favorites as well!
Something related to her favorite flower - a photo of roses that she took in Switzerland! I also love roses, they are timeless as well as being one of the few flowers that don't affect my asthma.
Something that reflects her personal style - BLING! Gorgeous earrings!! I will be wearing these for the holidays for sure!
Something related to a non-craft hobby - travel tag! I'm going to London with my sister in 2010, as Edel knows, so this will come in handy!
Something related to her favorite holiday - Christmas! Which is also my favorite holiday. We are finding that we are very similar, which is great fun!
Something edible - Cadbury snack bars and sinful looking and smelling chocolate chips! The bars are only found in Ireland, I can't wait to try them, in fact, I can't believe I've held out so long already!
Something local - Lyons original blend loose tea! I drink a lot of tea and can't wait to try this one!
Something yarn related - Edel made these armwarmers from a cable knit sweater, aren't they cute?!
The picture didn't seem to come out right as to the color, but they are very red and cheery!
Something that smells nice - it's Christmas incense, frankincense, cinnamon pine cypruss and orange peel clove. You put it all together and it smells lovely and is to clear the air of negativity and heaviness. Just in the little bag it smells divine.
Something she always keeps in her bag - a tea wallet. Edel said it is essential to get through the day!
I took two photos of this as it is totally cute and is going in my work tote immediately. Not only did she send a tea wallet, but she filled it with various kinds of teas all labeled!
Something related to a craft - IKEA fabric (toooo cute!), lace trims that are from London and one of them is about 30yrs old!, cute little flower trim and the blue and white bobbles. Edel didn't know this, but when I was 16 I had to drive my mom's car to get to my afterschool job. The car had bucket seats and I hadn't hit 5' yet (I KNOW!!
). My mom made me a pillow to sit on that was blue and white gingham with blue and white bobble trim. I think I may make a mini pillow with the bobbles!
I think this package was one of the most fun I have ever opened! I can't wait to send Edel her next package!
