Whoo-hoo! I received! Whoo-hoo! I received! (Unfortunately, I am unable to take and post photos, so as soon as I am done posting a description of the items my generous partner-mellermann-has sent me, I will PM her so she can post photos if she would like.)
I have swapped with mellermann before, and I was already aware of her talent and awesomeness! Here goes:
B-bookmarks! A set of THREE, CROSS-STITCHED (yes, you read right), papercrafted corner bookmarks!
A-altered sketchbook! It has a black cover and on it she put one of my fav. quotes: 'Keep calm and carry yarn'!
She also decorated the front with a ball of yarn made out of thread and knitting needles made out of toothpicks! What a nifty idea!
R-rugs for my mugs! (Also known as 'mug rugs'!
) A set of SIX of them! Yesssssss!
B-beads & buttons! Dark and light colored wood beads, and a package of 'heirloom' style buttons. I don't have either of these items in my stash, so I am thrilled to have them now!
A-any occasion greeting cards! Pink/brown/creme colored with cupcakes! My fav. color combo and one of my fav. themes!
R-rainbow earrings! I knew from experience that mellermann was a talented jewelry maker, and I figured that package was coming today, so I didn't put on my earrings, just in case!
And mellermann didn't disappoint! Silver with rainbow colored seed beads... GEORGOUS!
A-art work featuring the four seasons! Too detailed for words...I hope mellermann posts photos so everyone can wist/pin these...creative and beautiful! I can't wait to put them on my craft room walls!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
