Well, my partner's package was delivered back in June, but she hasn't been home to see it yet due to family issues. I don't want to bug her anymore about the package, but I do want to get feedback so I can clear up a swap space. I hope that's okay, MissieJean!

Anyway, here's what I sent.

One of the themes my partner liked was birds and she didn't want wall art, so I made her this centerpiece. The quote on the scroll reads "To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest."



She also likes butterflies and gardening, so I made her this gardening apron. I abbreviated the quote, but the full one is "We're all stumbling towards the light with varying degrees of grace at any given moment."


And finally, she has just taken up beekeeping, so I got her these little herb pots and put bees and a Dave Matthews Band quote on them. The quote is "I'll lean on you and you lean on me and we'll be okay"



I also put in a garden stake, but I didn't get a picture of it. I didn't make it though - it was an extra.

Anyway, I hope she liked it all.

I received from FinchyMcFincherton A while ago but was out of town. But it was an AWESOME package.

Winnie the Pooh box (He's my FAVORITE)with a quote from the song House on Pooh Corner "You'd be surprised theres so much to be done. Count all the bees in the hive. Chase all the clouds from the sky"


And a supercutecuff with the Dr. Seuss Quote "We're all a little weird and lifes a little weird and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we fall in mutual weirdness and call it love"


Thank you so much! I love it!

I'm glad to see it survived! I was pretty proud of the cuff, because it was my first one, and I made the word art myself! I actually felt a little insecure about what I sent after I saw your package, so I'm happy you liked everything!

I just returned from TX over the weekend and was so excited to get my awesome package from Sarabunny.  My very favorite item (bird in the nest) is hanging out in the bookshelf behind me right now, and the awesome sun pick is hanging out with my chives in a pot on the back porch at this very moment.  Sadly, only one of the pots survived the trip intact - "you lean on me" - it seems appropriate given the health issues my family is undergoing right now; it will be a lasting reminder of being there for them.

Sarabunny, that was a cool package you sent! The apron is beautiful and the bird is such a fun take on her quote.

I think that Dr. Suess cuff is amazingly wonderful! It sure made me smile.

silentblair, tracking your package to me, it's going back the wrong way!  It may be heading back to you.  Everyone should get to see all your crafty wonderfulness, so if you took pictures before you sent and show them off, you should!! I'll promise no to look!  Ok, I promise to tell you I didn't look!

Did you mean someone else? But that's a bummer that the package is being a big boomerang!
