Get ready to be thoroughly blown away...
LadybugsAndBumblebees made the most wonderful package for me. It was better than Christmas!!
A pic of all the wrapped goodies...
I was puking my guts out all day yesterday and my husband runs in with this enormous package and demands that I open it. I wished so much that I could but I just did not have it in me. I slept for 48 hours! So this morning I had just a bit of energy and opened them...
Strawberry candle that smells like heaven, adorable ceramic(?) owl pendant, a GodsEye made by her DD/Niece (was this a dual project? or are they one and the same people?), a wonderful stamp which I'm gonna use on the outside of every Craftster swap I mail, owl notes of the style from my wist, and a fabric owl dangle.
A brilliantly recrafted plastic bottle-turned-pencil holder with my alltime favorite shroom fabric on it. It has been treated somehow so if I spill coffee on it, I can clean it!! Plus 3 pencils that my H eyed so hard that if one goes missing, I will know where it is. 2 cuff bracelets (cuffs are the only kind I wear) and necklaces to match. A shroom garden stake that will live at the base of my birdbath.
Modeling my favorite colored cuff...
7 colorful dishrags (the only way I wash dishes... hate those scrubby things) so I can have one fresh every day, waterbottle holder which is soooo perfect for cycling, as my favorite bottle won't fit in the bike holder, an eyeglass case to replace the grodie one I picked up for free by the side of the road.
Detail of eyeglass holder. She even 'went green' for the liner. I am a Greenie. Isn't the button stunning?!
Towels to STAY PUT on the oven door... I am always going for the towel, only to discover it missing. It is slung over my H's shoulder, ARG! That will no longer happen.
2 pieces of fabric that actually made me SWOON!! I adore the sewing one (love vintage stuff) but the too-sweet-animals absolutely made my day - if I had seen this fabric online, it woulda been on my wist. Goodness, but I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!
La piece de Resistance, a gorgeous handbag. Ladybugs did such a professional job on this. I can't wait to use it, but I am gonna cry when it gets its very first stain...
My left thumb does not work properly (you may be able to see one of three scars there where they attempted to correct it....) so Ladybugs put a nice big grabber on the zipper so I could actually use it.
Lookie!! It lights up! An adorable cookie that will help me see into the bag at night. The lining is right up my alley. I don't think I have ever had anyone stalk my tastes as well as this swapper did.
Here is a pic I totally forgot to put in... retro mushroom pitcher and napkin holder. I have seen these on Ebay at huge prices so have never been able to own one. Now I have two!! Gosh, I love these so much!
LadybugsAndBumblebees, I cannot thank you enough for your incredible generosity and skills.
