I recieved from Katymai today, i was soo excited recieving my first swap package, and everythings perfect! Thankyou so much for all your hard work!

to the pictures:

these notelets have dried pressed flowers on them, some of them so tiny! i took a detailed up close photos too.

this little hessian bag has embroidery of fruit and vegetables on one side, with leaf-beads sewn on too, and a leaf on the other side. the photos make it look a bit wonky but it isnt really! theres also a little animal (giraffe?) charm hanging off the bag. Its really lovely, it must have taken forever! thankyou Smiley

heres a photo of the note paper katymai wrote a letter on, i thought it was lovely with little woodland animals round the edge.

This is a cushion made of felt with animals and a tree.. it has daytime on one side and nighttime on the other! ! i love the deer particularly, as i always see deer when im walking in the forest.

and theres more..
This jewellery is made from shells and the bracelet has a tiny jar of sand on it that katymai collected from near where she lives. where did you find such a tiny bottle? theres also a necklass, earings and 2 charms to hang off stuff. one is missing from the photo as i put it strait on my phone (see separate picture).

thankyou again for everything! it really made my day.

oh ive just noticed in that photo the earings and charm are facing the wrong way. the earing have a blue disk too, like the necklass, and the charm has a little metal flower on the other side.

wow, the jewelry, purse, pressed flowers, what a great package! Katymai really stuck to the theme so perfectly!

I just wanted to pop in and say that I received my box today and while I did open it (and immediately put some of the items to use), I am packing like mad and need to be to the airport in an hour!

But, seriously, this stuff is awesome and Ecstatic rocks so much and she made me the BEST stuff and even tossed in a big, old candy bar (which will taste even better at a ten bagillion feet in the air, I'm sure). I hope we can all wait for pictures, but just rest assured that it rocked.

Also, -- Thank you to people who wisted my jewelry! I'm so flattered -- and to think that was just putzing around, too! Thank you!

Everything is so nice!  I love it all!  Especially all the bags and journals.  And the jewelry.  And the gnomes.

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

Ok Wist buttons at the ready and I apologise now for lots of pictures but I am so excited.  This is the wonderful package I received today from Angry Angel.

Meet Nemi

Nemi is a Shore Sprite who lives on the seashore and hides herself from prying eyes with her seashell hat and seaweed-like hair as camouflage.
Isn't she just beautiful? 

There was also these pretty wee birds on a key chain that is now proudly on my handbag.

These gorgeous necklaces as modelled by the lovely Nemi.  The necklaces are reminiscent of the sea - bubbles and seaweed.  I am wearing them right now Grin

A pretty wee bookmark of a beaded blackberry for all my outdoor reading

And this amazing bag for taking a spare coat/jumper in when we go off on our walks.

Nemi says it's the perfect size for her to tag along too Wink

Thank you so much Angry Angel you totally spoiled me.

I'm so pleased you like the package, Tazzell, and Nemi looks really cute in the bag!

The blackberry wasn't made by me, I'm afraid. I got it (with some others) from LaughingLark in the Shop the Swap swap last year - she makes amazing beaded things.
