I received my package from RaraAvis some time ago and am just now getting pics uploaded. This in NO WAY reflects on the package... I've just been slammed with work. and then I *lost* the pictures in one of my appraisal files...
Anyway - on the the fabulousness!!
It was such a big package that I couldn't get a good photo with everything in it for an "overall" so it's in batches:
Hobbies: Cooking - Some lovely wooden spoons! (I love to cook too and agree, you can never have too many!)
Hobbies: Collecting - One of her main collectables are "things from different cultures" as she is an anthropology major. So the little brass buddha is representative of her collecting! (I love this and it sits atop my computer to remind me to find some time for calm)
Favorite: Fashion Brand - Free People - some warm and snuggly socks for the winter - these are so soft and lush it almost makes me wish for cold weather! (ok, not really! but I will enjoy them when the temps take the inevitable plunge!)
Drink: Pomegranate White Tea (wait... do you know me or something?!
we have very similar tastes in many things!)
Favorite: plant! A cute cactus! looks great next to my kitchen sink!
Favorite: Freebie - Burt's Bee's lip balm - mmmmmm. Love this stuff
Closer to home: local - Stunning cards from Canyon CA - these are beautiful!
Closer to home: career - a pencil from the College of Alameda where she works! (This is a great one for me as I still use pencils every day for my work!)
Closer to Home: Holidays - Her favorite holiday - Christmas - These beeswax ornaments are a family tradition! they are lovely and will look awesome on our tree! (I will enjoy them whilst wearing my snuggly socks!)
Craft it: A little needle felted bird! This is so dang cute! I can't believe you've only been doing this craft for a short time! I love this
Craft it: Candle Making - since she was a little girl - a family craft! So cool! I LOVE THESE CANDLES! I use candles all of the time and these will be awesome for special occasions!
Extras!!! Lots of beads and stones and brightly colored bits of glass!!! Yay! And a colorful pouch to tote them in! These will all go to good use in my studio!
Thank you so much RaraAvis! I really, really enjoyed opening each parcel and learning about you!
