I received my FOC package!  I was so excited to figure out who it was.  I opened everything and still didn't know, so I finally had to read the long letter that came with it.  I never would have guessed who it was - let's see if you can!

All the packages wrapped in tissue paper:


There were so many I didn't know what to open first, so I started with the small ones. Cheesy

First there was this beautiful domino pendant - painted and wrapped with wire and beads.  I love it!


The golden dangly star earrings:


a microscope slide pendant - side 1:


side 2:


Then there's the melted CD bracelet!


So now I'm thinking "Hmmm, who makes really lovely jewelry?"  I wasn't sure, so I moved on.

to a handcarved vampire kisses stamp!


A variety of notecards stamped with my new stamp:


A painting of a vampy fairy:


And an amazing wallhanging painted on silk:


So at this point I really couldn't figure out who has all these mad skillz!  But there was one final package to open...

A knitted (I think knitted) and lined bag with a removable flower!!!


After that, I really had no idea of who the heck knew how to do all these beautiful things.








It's Samsara!!!!!!!!  I have long envied her partners, especially in the HP swaps!  Ginny - you're amazing, I can't believe you made all that stuff!  Thank you so much, I love it all!!

Awesome package! I think my fave is the domino pendant. Oh, and the bag is crocheted. Wink You are now the proud owner of a Fat Bottom Bag (and aren't those Slytherin colors?  Grin)...something that is on my ever-growing to do list. Smiley

You lucky girl!

I'm sorry, you're right, crocheted.  Ginny did say that.  I'm a little befuddled by all the glory! Wink

It is quite alright. Just thought that I'd clarify. Smiley

nice package!

and the bar goes even higher - ack!

I really want to learn how to do those microscope slide pendants - I should look for a tute - and that one looks really cute...

and that bag is really well done!

hey my partner out there - you have to read the whole thing to find out who sent to you too!

mwa-ha-ha-ha as me DD would exclaim!
