Looks like I am the first to receive!  My partner was rockingbearranch!

First of all, the package was all wrapped in pink duct tape and there was a little happy Audrey in the corner!  I made sure to cut that away safely so I can hang it on my bulletin board!  I love Audrey!



There was a tin (bonus! it had Elvis images on it!) filled with goodies:

Venus Fly trap wall hanging or optional mug rug! Since I love the water, she made an underwater version of one--how imaginative! I am hanging it on my wall next to my other fiber art piece:



Next, Mrs. Creepy Flowerface! ha ha that was what the teaser page was all about!  She eats feathers so I was glad to have received a bag of some to feed her!  Wink Cheesy


A small journal that I love!  I carry this size in my purse so that when inspiration hits, I can take notes or draw!  Nicely embroidered with a Venus flytrap!  After I am done with the journal, it comes apart and can be put into a hoopla!


Finally, some hand drawn tags.  They are done with antique pigments..over 50 years old. I would be interested to know how you have these--what's the story!


Oh..and she include some Angora fleece (yay! someday I will learn to felt, but for now, I just take it out and play with it...) and the feathers (pet chickens, not food chickens!)...


Thank you for an interesting mix of items...I have plans for those tags! Grin

The Venus Flytrap Anemone is a real creature. When there is danger they hop off into the current to get away. They have that stumpy foot instead of the plant stalks the land lubber has. They are super neat to see.

The pigments are from a relation who was a real working artist. They gave me their old stuff to play with when I was a kid. I drew Mrs Creapy from a person's photo and then a flower photo. She turned out like Alice in Wonderland flowers probably because I kept thinking about seeing the play and one particular shrill actress. That was one of my favorite live theater scenes.

Someone has received, already? I should get to work! Wink

Great package. I especially like those tags and the little stitched journal. I had to look up the flytrap anemone. Sure enough there it is. Who knew? Very clever.

I guess technically it is not a plant, but the carnivorous part counts, right? Grin

I'll post a few inside pages when I get home...there are some batik fabrics and some pages have nature pics on them...a perfect little art journal!  The fabric is really nice -- a cotton with texture...
