So much amazing goodness contained in one gallery!!
I received package #1 AND package #2 from sheepBlue! And there is so much spoilage here.... pic obese, just a warning! Also, my craptastic camera takes craptastic pics. So sheepBlue, if you have better photos (coz mine don't really do this stuff justice), please feel free to post them!
These are all going to be mixed up coz I don't remember what was package 1 and what was package 2.... anyway:
Closer to Home: she loves writing and getting letters! She sent me some cute notecards and some "snarky fun postcards for the holidays"!
Favorite craft supply-FABRIC: she sent me soooooo many fabric pieces! I'm beginning to make TM patches and she's already a master, so she shared some of her stash! Be prepared- this is a LOT of fabric!
Craft it: she loves mixed media assemblage and playing with rusty bits! And she always comes up with something fantastic, like this:
Hobbies: she collects funky socks, especially knee socks. I am soooooo diggin' these flamingos!!
Craft it: As I mentioned, she is a TM patch master, and she made me a whole bunch that totally reflect my style. (I also discovered that she is a pretty good stalker...!) I'm in the process of making a sewing machine cover of TM patches, and these are definitely going to be a part of it!
Favorite-Chapstick: she says she can't live without it!
Hobbies: sudoku puzzles (also a great love of mine) and list making. She sent along the cutest notepad made from Monopoly money! What a cute idea! And a cute ATC!
Whimsies: The coolest whimsies in whimsiedom!! Holy crow, every single thing in here made me ooh and ahhh! watch parts, buttons, cabochons, charms, transformers, beads, little animals, scrabble tiles, miniatures, a vintage film canister full of bits & bobs, HP buttons, bingo markers, an awesome brooch, a "dreams" jar, skulls, washi tape, hinges and clasps, a tiny porcelain dutch shoe, an awesome bat.... so many fabulous things, each more squee-worthy than the last!!
Art: she has an art degree! Check out the amazing piece she sent me (this one I do remember is from package #2):
Not the best pic, perhaps she has a better one?
I also learned that not only is she extremely talented, she is also has a kind and generous spirit. My cousin is having a fundraising auction to help pay for her cancer treatment, and sheepBlue sent these wonderful gifts along to help out: a Halloween stocking, a FABULOUS hoopla, and a "hunting trophy" featuring a rhino's backside
The fat quarter in the pic is custom printed, she sells them in her etsy shop! She had sent a note saying the unwrapped items were for my cousin, and it was not wrapped the same way everything else was, so I assumed.... and yes, made an ass of myself!
It is actually FOR ME!!
It's from Closer to Home and it's her own design, little sleeping foxes.... so freaking cool! I'm glad I get to keep it!!
sheepBlue, you went above and beyond and spoiled me unbelievably!! Thank you for these thoughtful and amazing treasures!!
