I've received my first package from Najaorama, too! It's great
I can't believe how similar so many of our interests are.
Here is an shot of all of the goodies:
This is the best shot for viewing the amazingly beautiful orange fabric that she picked up during one of her relief work trips to Africa.
Here is a close up of the edge-of-the-cup-cookie cookie cutter & the prayer flags from her wedding:
Both are such great ideas! She loves to cook & so do I... Can't wait to make the cookies! The flags are so simple and sweet~ I've already shared the idea with a friend of mine who is getting married later this year~
Here are the knitted lily purse, the bottle stopper & the package of mica:
Naja is learning to knit & this is a detailed & pretty project, so cute! The bottle stopper is for making ginger beer... I love that she & her hubby make their own beer~ Something that is on my to-do list this Fall! And the mica is from an abandoned mine where she & her hubby often go hiking
Here is my favourite: the gorgeous
flower/rhinestone hairclip (that I wore last night & am wearing again right now)
These Snoop Dog cocktail napkins made me laugh out loud:
Like Naja, I neither drink many cocktails nor particularly love Snoop Dog.... It doesn't matter ~ These are awesome!
We friended each other on Facebook when we were partnered for this swap and I've come to learn that Naja is not only a very insightful person, she also has an awesome sense of humour
I get a kick out of her funny posts quite often.
My bf & I are having a BBQ/party for the tightrope walk at Niagara Falls tonight and I can't wait to see peoples' expressions when they see these out on the table hahaahah
Lastly, Naja sent me a 9th item "just because" ~ a garlic shaped pincushion
Just because she's a little random. I love it!
I also really loved the Monet card that she wrote all of the descriptions in (see the first photo in the post)... She didn't now it, but Monet is my favourite artist. Happy accident.
Thank you SO MUCH for sending me so many cool things, Naja! This swap rocks!!!
