I received from Cinderly today! This package was so amazing. According to her letter, she went by the theme of Pirates
- an EXCELLENT choice, I must say.
First off, my Pirate booty:
-A MARVELLOUS patchwork pouch! The picture doesn't do it justice. The fabrics are so fabulous and soft, and oh! It's wonderful! And it's long, so I don't have to worry about whether my things will fit in it or not.
-A piratey-red shirt that says "I am disinclined to acquiesce to your request."
-Several bags of cookies, with recipes, so I can check the ingredients, and make more for myself later! Some of them are chocolate chip, and others are sugar cookies frosted to look like pirate flags! I had to fight my family off - almost literally! - to keep them from devouring these.
She also sent me an AWESOME shirt with a silvery silhouette of Tinkerbell! (With whom I am obsessed.) Seriously, this is my fifth Tink shirt, sixth if you count my pajama top.
And I think it's my favorite of all the ones I have.
Inside my pirate pouch was a suprise!
Beautiful handmade notecards, all with Shakespeare quotes! (Properly notated, too! *swoon*) And, not pictured, envelopes to go with them. I'm not sure if I could ever send these, though, I want to keep them!
It seems like Cinderly anticipated that, though, because she also sent me an amazing card-crafting kit!
The picture came out blurry, but it includes:
-A 'collage pad' of handmade paper in blues and purples
-A great homemade instructional guide: 'Quote Cards 101' and 'Inspiration Gallery'. VERY well illustrated - I will be getting a LOT of use out of this!
-A stack of textured, self-adhesive cardstock in neutral colors
-A set of blank white notecards with envelopes
-A pack of "Thinking of You" rub-on phrases and icons
-An adhesive roller! (I'm getting giddy just thinking of how much easier gluing paper will be with this!)
-Two Tinkerbell ballpoint pens <3
-and LOTS of Tinkerbell stickers!
And I had to include, at the top, Cinderly's letter with Swap Anxiety Girl at the bottom!
And last but not least: The Magic Yarn Blob!
If I understand correctly, it's not one, but THREE different yarns! And Cinderly's letter says that theme-related card supplies are wrapped up inside it. (I think I see a glue-stick in there.) I need to find a pattern to use this on and get to work immediately! I want my buried treasure!
Thank you SO much Cinderly!
