This week's theme is All Wrapped Up, but what I'm thinking about right now is unwrapping. Specifically, tearing open wonderful packages that arrive in the mail. Isn't it the most wonderful thing when you arrive home after a long day to see a package waiting for you, tucked into your front door. Sitting there, patiently waiting for you to come a long, claim it and find out what's inside?
I've been most, most lucky recently!
First, I received a wonderful package from Jeannie Dukic. I was the lucky winner of one of her wonderful blog give aways where she was giving away several of her new polymer clay pendants. Jeannie does an incredible job with packaging. Opening the box, I found the tin in the back right, with a a beautiful polymer clay lid. Inside the tin, I found her wonderful packages, including the cutest little envelope for her business cards.
I haven't had the heart to take the pendants out of their clever packages yet, but I promise to share pictures when I do. In the meantime, here's a close up of her papercut decorations.
Thank you so much Jeannie! I already have plans for the hot pink/orange Half Lotus charm. Just need a wee bit of time in my schedule to finish putting it together.
This week, two more packages arrived in the mail! One from my Bead Soup partner, Tracey Nanstad, which I will share in a separate post. And the second was COOKIES from Sarah of Saturday Sequins, one of my bestest blogging friends.
Homemade Peanutbutter Chocolate Oatmeal cookies, along with a little note saying they were Mr. Sequin's favorite recipe! Now wasn't that a wonderful package to unwrap? Yum! Thank you Sarah!
This immediately makes me want to turn around and send someone a package, because it's almost as much fun to wrap and send as it is to receive and unwrap. So, if you'd like to potentially get a small package from me (it might just be a decorated letter, or it could be cookies, or beads - who knows?) leave a comment saying so and I'll randomly pick several of you to send something to. I'll do the drawing next Wednesday.
