The whole package together



A HUGE bucket of Cosmo mix



Cosmo decorative basket which I absolutely love and think I may use it as a recipe box

I'm so glad you liked everything. I got a bit over zealous, as you can tell, but it was so much freaking fun! :-)

Thebox is painted and decopauged :-D

WOW, what a great package!  You'll have to let us know if you like that Cosmo mix, I've been eyeing it for a while now.  They had a bunch at Target during the holidays but i wasn't' sure how it would taste. 

Great job redstar13!!

Those Cosmo goodies are great, redstar13! What fun.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a package from foufigirl when I got home this afternoon. Wow. She is something! I bow down to her crafty artistic greatness. Here's what she sent:

First, a picture with a great handpainted frame, stating "I love Cosmopolitans". I love these colors! Going clockwise around, there are four really cute shrinky dink drink markers, each with a different martini on them, a package of olive stir sticks, and a set of hilarious stickers that say "Scratch and Smell the Tiny Martini". I bet these are even more fun when the Cosmos are flowing!


Next, a really cute tote bag, with a sparkley applique and hand embroidered "Cosmo". It quite possibly has the cutest lining fabric in the world. The square item sitting on top of it in the picture is a tissue cozy made out of the same fabric as the lining. I'm sorry that the picture doesn't do the bag justice. It's beautifully sewn and has red "bubble" sequins in the Cosmo itself.


And, last but certainly not least, my personal favorite, a Cosmo painting. It's about 8 1/2 by 11, and is going to look so good right by my computer desk. The wall color in this room matches the interior of that lime perfectly! I'm going to go find a great frame for it and hang it up ASAP. I just love it.


Thanks so much, foufigirl! I really appreciate all the hard work you sent my way. I'm feeling like a lucky Cosmo girl today!  Grin

Man, this stuff looks fantastic so far! (And this was a swap I was stalking too.... maybe I'll be in for another round!)

That Cosmo painting and frame are excellent - the font on the frame looks like one I like to use, and the painting looks like the various alcohol ads that I always like to buy when the poster sale rolls into my school.
