Yowza!

This amazing Christmas Swap package came for me in today's mail from the awesome Krista in Atlanta, GA. Artemis, as is the norm, was the first to dive in and investigate. There was a mouse stuffed with catnip in the package, so everything smelled good to her. She started rolling in the presents until distracted by her ultimate draw, curling ribbon.

The package was incredibly generous. Everything was beautifully wrapped with ribbons and adorable tags. She really put together a package that was so thoughtful and showed that she read my blog and got who I am.

Inside was a bundle of cool fat quarters, a mushy cushy sparkly ball of fiber bits and pieces, beautiful bags of beads ( I see some stitch markers in my future), a silver frame ornament for a picture of Tosca for the Christmas tree, lots of cool flower appliques and stickers, an assortment of decorative papers, Dale Chihuly notecards, a stash of fun postcards...

a gorgeous mother of pearl pendant and the cutest "Clara Bow"ish button.

And there were a couple of Linder chocolate truffles that I immediately scarfed down, YUM. Thank you, Krista...the smile is ear to ear!

You lucky lady. I get it now...you do swap bot to get lovely presents in the mail. I'm scared to start--it sounds like a birthday and holiday on a bi-monthly basis.

smooches, maris

I have buttons very similar to the Clara Bow ones...but I like yours better!!!
Totally jealous...

Sorry for being quiet as of late. I've just been...I don't know..not feeling myself lately. I guess the whole job search has gotten me down. But we will definitely be hanging out soon! Are you off next week? Maybe some drinks and yarn?

Wow, what a gift package! I especially love the pic of Artemis in abandon, snarffling the wrappings.

Thanks for your comment on www.kinttingwhilesleeping.blogspot.com. The House o' Xmas Lights right around the corner from me, at Aspen & 23rd. Isn't it fab?

Happy New Year, Lisa! Merrill

Lisa,
Happy new year! You're right about those fetching fingerless gloves! Anyway, I wanted to apologize that you'll have to wait a few extra days because of the holidays for your coffee/knitting package. I hope you like what you get!
