Great start to the gallery!  I love the domino bracelet, the tutu (I got one for Halloween and didn't want to take it off either!), the jars and the mermaid!

I received an awesome package from Myrdda yesterday!!!!  She did a great job stalking me.  I really enjoyed opening this box of goodies.  Here goes:



She crafted a teacup pincushion (two passions in one - tea and pincushions!) that says "Watch me sew like mad!", a length of chiffon print that will make a very nice top, and a darling watercolor of a stack of books topped with tea!  The books are sewing, knitting, crochet, spinning, family, quilting, art journaling, the book of tea, and spirituality!  She nailed it!  SO CUTE!



She also sent this adorable tea box and a heat/cold bag filled with rice and lentils.  This is especially perfect as I suffer with rheumatoid arthritis and often need a little heat somewhere.  Unfortunately, the tea box paint triggered an asthma attack -- I am going to put it outside for a day or two and see if that will fade.  It's too cute not to use!  You can see a shot of the teacup pincushion in the background!



The teabox is glass-topped and the workd "TEA" is etched into it.  Lovely!  You can see the bird painting a bit better here as well!



The teabox was filled with all these goodies!  Pattern weights (LOVE), button thumbtacks (LOVE 2!), chainmaille keychain (how clever -- a key at the end of a key chain!), a beaded lanyard necklace, a bird's nest brooch and a pair of beaded jade earrings! 



Myrdda really honed in on my favorite color combo of blue and green.  There is a nice length of the blue and green batik, and the flowers and dots are too cute!



You'll recognize the dots from the teacup pincushion -- the flowers made their debut on this awesome apron!  The pattern is Myrdda's own design and it fits me perfectly!  I love the colors and know this apron will be very handy in my craft and cooking life!



Here's a detail shot of the apron back! 

I am uploading these photos while sipping a cup of Honeybush, Mandarin and Orange tea that Myrdda sent my way, with a splash of honey from my new honey dispenser.  I actually squeeee'd when I saw this honey dispenser.  It has been on my amazon wishlist forever.  I'll put it in my cart every once in awhile, then take it out because I don't really need it.  To top it off, Myrdda says she found this in a thrift shop -- I LOVE thrifted items!  It's perfect! 
 

Thank you, Myrdda!  Your selections were perfect!

I'm so sorry it triggered an asthma attack Sad I have a ton of problems with that particular brand of sealant.

I am glad you like it all, though, A2K!! and glad the honey dispenser is finding a useful home Cheesy

That is a great package! I adore the book painting and the tea box!  Not much of a tea drinker except a bit in the winter so I would have used that as a jewelry box!  Hope the smell fades so it's usable for you A2K!

What an awesome package. Am I the only one who thought "Mad Hatter" upon seeing the teacup? And pattern weights? How have I never known about these? I NEED some now! Also, super jelly of the gorgeous fabrics.

No worries!  I had no idea I was sensitive to dry paints, but I did know about fumes. . .  I think a day or two outside will make all the difference!

What a wonderful gallery already! Allow me to add my awesome package from Lindyv321 as well. First I have to say that this lady can pack a box! There was so much stuff, I need you to come pack my bags when I go on vacation lol.

First the supply's, two packs of trim, a needle felting kit (something I have been wanting to try for awhile), new note cards, a string of beads, two stamps and 3 packs of washi tape. I have been looking at washi tape but haven't picked any up because I'm not sure what I would do with it since I'm not much of a paper crafter, now I get to try some new projects. And I was in serious need of some new notecards, which I had just remarked on when packing up her box.



Jewlery! The necklaces are Goonies definition, Believe charm and beaded chevron. A bracelet that the photo doesn't do justice to. Don't worry Lindy it fit's perfectly, I had to take it off for the photo. A note book which I think is decorated with washi paper? The front of my bird shrine, this photo show's the color the best. The little leave a note owls is a magnant, it's hard to see but there is a little clothes pin for the note. Dalek key fob!!! I think this is my favorite of the package Smiley I am trying to decide if I want to make a little purse to go with it or just put my keys on it. Where in the world did you find Dalek ribbon?



Embroideried goodies Smiley The Gallifrayean is a Harry Potter/Doctor Who mash up, it says "After all this time?" "Always". The owl says "life is a dance, you learn the steps as you go", I love the colors! And another view of the bird shrine.



Two shirts, the blue is actually very vibrant I love the color.



I walked outside and realized I had forgotten my sun catcher, which has been living on my patio since I opened it Smiley



Whew I think that's everything, thank you again lindyv321!! I love everything.

So glad you like it all! I got the ribbon on Etsy!  Luckily I have some left to make my own key fob. I noticed we totally have the same counters!!!
