Get your wisting fingers ready!
I received the most adorable package from tinkstar yesterday!!! We had a crazy busy day yesterday (I was cooking all day making snacks for our group get together) and it came in the mail, but he didn't tell me because he knew I would have time to open it and fully enjoy and oogle over it. So when we got home at midnight, he surprised me with it. He's so sweet.
TinkStar totally spoiled me!!! My husband (who has opened many swap packages with me) was standing there with me and he said "Well she sews just as well as you do!!". We were both really impressed with the quality!!! Now I'm really nervous and hoping she likes her package too!!
Here's the beautiful card she sent me with a nice note on the inside (totally made me feel bad that I only wrote a note to her on a scratch piece of paper - I don't have the time or room to papercraft unfortunately).
And here's a shot of the whole kit and caboodle. I told her what I wanted was a nice little clutch that I could take to formal occasions (mainly the symphony), and she hit the nail on the head and made me exactly what I was looking for. Altogether she made me the clutch, a cute little business card holder (brown), some earring from my wist, a new wallet, a pincushion, and threw in some lotion for my dry hands:
Here is the adorable business card holder that I've already filled right up:
The super cute pincushion that she had no idea that I was lusting over from her shop:
Have to have some lotion, especially since its snowing outside right now and my hands are really dry:
Adorable dropsy earrings modeled after some on my wist that my college roommate makes and sells:
A brand new wallet!!! My husband was really super impressed with the quality here, and the fabric and colors are TOTALLY my style:
And then a shot of the lining of the clutch, which is PERFECT for the symphony!!
I really am so touched by all the thought and creativity and hard work that Alma put into my package! What a wonderful swap!!! I just hope she likes what I made her half as much as I like my new clutch and goodies!!!
