Okay, so I finally got the card reader to work. (Yeah, my camera is old enough I still have to use a card reader. lol) Here are the pics of what Vinnie sent me. Sorry for the lousy quality. (Old camera...)
I was excited, and knew the moment that I opened the package that it was going to be cool. Check out the cute boxes she made to send everything in!
The first thing I actually opened was the card she sent me, and all these cute stickers fell out. I just know my daughter will steal them. All except the cats, she can't have those.
Then I got into the actual crafted stuff. First was a box FULL of origami cranes and stars w/ my name on them. To be honest, I actually unfolded one of the cranes trying to figure out how it was made. I only remember how to make flapping cranes. Never really did the stationary ones. lol
Next was this cute little hat. I love the teal color.
And the peacock feather trim for said hat. Yay for peacocks. Maybe that is why I like that teal color. XD
Then there were some cute little bows made with zippers. I thought it was a very unique idea. And the fact that they were purple zippers made me lol a little, but on the inside (Can you lol on the inside and it still count as a lol?) due to a joke from back in hs. (For anyone ultimately curious, the joke was a friend gave me a b-day card that said "How do you make an elephant fly?" and on the inside it said "First you get a very big zipper..." and enclosed was the biggest purple zipper I have ever seen. Like 4 foot long. I had no idea what I would use it for - if ever, but it actually came in handy a few years later when the zipper broke on my beloved Sailor Moon backpack and I had to replace it.) But back to the bows:
Next was one of my favorite pieces. I am not normally a pink person and my hair will inevitably eat this comb for lunch, but I adore sakura.
After that was my other favorite piece, the choker that she tatted for me. I am definitely a pearls girl. I always thought they were way more classy that rocks, and if forced to "girlie" it up, I love having that timeless look.
Finally, she made me a bag which is awesome. It will get so overused at the cons....
Here is one more picture of everything, just to make you go "ooohhh". Haha
Thank you Vinnie!!!
