I received a super fun package from Sticker/Beth yesterday, but I was very pressed for time and wasn't able to take pictures and post about them. So here they are now!
Hobbies: Reading. She made me three different styles of bookmarks, which is very handy, because I can never seem to find mine. They always end up in my son's bedroom, because he NEEDS them. She also sent me the first book from her favorite book series, which I have not read yet. I'll be starting on this as soon as I get through the library books stack, I have, since those have due dates.
Closer to Home: Local. Beth sent me postcards and a magnet from her favorite vacation spot in Michigan, that she went to a few weeks ago. She also got me a bunny cookie cutter, bc I love bunnies. Looks like I'll be making bunny cookies soon.
Favorites: Craft supplies. She sent me a little stack of goodies for this one. A purple fat quarter, some paper crafting supplies (Which I've never attempted, until I made her little tags for her package), and a sewing gauge, which as long as I've been sewing, I've never had one, so I'm interested to see how this will help my projects.
Hobbies: Collecting. Beth collects tiny houses. She loves them. She even at one point organized a swap for them. She made me a tiny house zipper pouch. This is probably my favorite piece, because its very "her". Its so pretty, and also includes that scrappy feeling, that she likes to use. I can be much too impatient to scrap, so when I do it, its no where near as nice as this.
Closer to home: Holiday. Her favorite holiday is Christmas, and she made me a tiny stocking ornament. Everyone in my little family picks/makes a new ornament each year to add to the tree, so this year, mine is already taken care of. The little snowmen are adorable.
Craft it: Fabric. A keychain wrist strap! I can't wait to add this to my keys. She made herself one of these also, so we match now.
Favorites: Season/accessory. Beth's favorite season is fall and winter, because she gets to wear hats and scarves. This is also the very first hat she's crocheted, so its extra special. She did an awesome job with it, and I can't wait to see what new hats she'll progress onto, after this one.
Craft it: Paper. Papercrafting, is Beth's main craft. Its what brought her to Craftster in the first place. She's great at it, and truthfully I don't know how she even thinks to take something so simple as paper, and make it pretty. I don't possess the "paper" genes I guess.
But I do like notecards, and gift tags, so I can't wait for an occasion to use these that she made for me.
