Haylie and her mom have received their package!

Here's what I sent for her mom:



I made her a matching set necklace, bracelet, and earrings out of swarovski crystal and swarovski pearls (her mom's favourite), a furry blue scarf, a decoupaged journal and matching set of coasters.  The box was painted by a friend of mine.

I also sent a small pot of jam from a local place and some coffee (I hope I remembered to put the coffee in!)

And this is what I sent for Haylie:



A purple scarf made from eyelash yarn, a blue and red crystalish bracelet,and a pink bracelet with a flower dangle.

Hopefully Haylie can provide some close-ups!

thanks! 

The coasters and journal were last minute pieces. I was going to make a picture frame instead, but then I found this huge box of cork rounds and decided coasters would be nicer.

My Mom received today and I should share that it was the perfect day for her to get her package.  She had a rough day at work and actually started tearing up when she opened the box.  She says thank you very much to supermedic and will, I'm sure, be writing her own note a little later.

I realized as I started writing that I don't have detail shots of things, just general ones, the light wasn't very good and I was too excited.  For now, I'll post general and then tomorrow, I'll add more.

A general overview, including a tantalizing glimpse of the fruit salad Dad made for dinner:


A view of my beautiful Mother, and her wonderful new strawberry apron:

She collects strawberry kitchen items, so this is quite perfect.  It was part of a kitchen set, so I'll post those tomorrow. 

A gorgeous chair organizer, which fits perfectly, although she claims that it is far too beautiful to sit on:


I promise to take more pictures tomorrow, if I can get the box away from my mom long enough.  She's considering taking it to work to show it off.  Not included in these pictures (because I am a silly, distractable girl), were a set of coasters, two little sachet bags, one with herbs, a lovely letter, and a pj set, which Mom is saving for her vacation in a week.    Thank you again, supermedic, and annaonthemoon, this was such a wonderful swap!

Your items are lovely! I can't wait to see the rest!

My mom started tearing up a little bit, too. I don't think any of our moms expected us to do something like this for them.

glad your mom liked.  let her enjoy her things.  I have pics here since we were supposed to be prepared to put up our own pics.


purple boot organizer since she loves her purple cowboy boots and 2 lavender drawstring sachets (one had the sage and lavender in bottom pic in it)

relaxing sleep set--pj bottoms, tank top, and matching eye mask (hope it all fits)

strawberry themed kitchen set--apron, grocery bag holder, coasters, strawberry stuffies or pincushions, pot holder and reversable drawstring goody bag

chair organizer (no she didn't get the stuff in it, that was just to show the pockets.)
Lavendar and sage (thanks to swap with auntiem)

Supermedic is quite amazing.  I must say thank you for more pictures, as my brain failed me once again and I babysat until 11 tonight.  Mom did end up bragging about her package at work today and I'm officially known as "the best child,"  a title that I take great delight in, especially around my brothers.   Grin
