HEY, it would suck NOT TO BE ME this past week. To begin with, my SWAPAPALOOZA arrived, and you can't see how cute the box was hand decorated. I had the LOVELY sarasophia, and oh boy I was super lucky with my swap.
You absolutely KNOW that a box is going to be good when the contents are described as "CD + girly-like-knick-knacks.... priceless".
Beautifully wrapped, with wonderful little handmade touches everywhere. Sarasophia put in SO much work, I was overwhelmed and completely chuffed. She sewed these little button wrap things, which were purely decorative and wonderful that I am going to have to find somewhere to put them, because I can't bear not to.
Everything! The cutest headband (worn twice, looks awesome with Weasley-red hair), yellow button earrings (ditto, 2 wearings), paper crane is sitting on a shelf in Ruby's room and the drawstring bag has been deployed in my nappy bag. SO AWESOME. Lovely lady, thank you so much! I was overwhelmed and clapping my hands with glee! It was SO worth the wait! Hooray! Oh and the cd, also superawesome.
Ok, so I think that is swapapalooza drawing to a close this round, if you have any feedback, please do send it to me - good or bad, a few annoying things happened this time around, so I will have to rethink about setting some guidelines next time around. All feedback will be kept anonymous.
ALSO, in a belated birthday surprise (I turned 33 in the start of August), my besty friend Erin also sent me a box of splendors. There was also a scarf that didn't make it's way into the photograph.
Ok, this new week you are LUCKY TO BE YOU because yes Rubes was sick over the weekend AGAIN. AGAIN PEOPLE. A nasty cough and a snuffty nose. She is coming out of it, but I feel a bit feverish and so does DrMr.
AND tonight I have to give my presentation on selling online at the Craft Vic symposrium, which is SOLD OUT (with a massive waiting list). I am looking forward to it being over, so that low-grade level of anxiety that has been living in my belly for the past month will be GONE.
