My Whimsy Jar from Diane of South Carolina.
I received a record breaking 'parcel' from Diane, my partner for the Whimsy Jar Exchange organised by Tini at NNC. The hefty postage alone was phenomenal, but what was inside was even more precious! She gave me more than a jarfull of goodies, there were other crafty things I just love!! She asked us to video tape the opening of the parcel. That we did, we also took some lovely photos of all the goodies inside!
The lovely card from Diane. THANKS DIANE!!!! I love everything you've sent.
Look at the jar of buttons! Aren't they just glorious. In every shape and colour.
Nigel's expression says it all. Cookie cutters! I'm so spoiled now.
Other crafty things from outside the jar! I love those petals. The yummy felts and chennile autumn pipe cleaners. Scrapbooking patterned papers....Diane, I think you must have spent a bomb on this exchange!
Brads of all shapes and colours. These are precious stash, you really can't find these here, and they would have costed a lot.
The most beautiful stash of stickers. I'm going to use these for my brother's wedding cake. They are simply divine!
A beautiful box of petals. This again is very expensive here.
Rolls of cute ribbons. I think I can use them for crocheted booties. If you look closer, you'll find really cute buttons here and there. Like candy in a store! THANKS DIANE!!!! It really feels like Christmas!!!!
AND THANKS TINI for organising this exchange! Thanks for the little surprise you sent. It's a lovely embroidered piece...looks perfect for Nigel's pillow or maybe his plain t-shirt or maybe a tote bag...hmmm. Love you!
