Oooh...Look What I Got!

Hello everyone,

So, I received my cigar box from my partner and isn't it fun how something you've seen on a video looks so awesome in person?

Isn't it gorgeous? The ballerina was so me when I first saw it and I wished for it. Lo and behold, it became mine. Isn't that ribbon skirt perfect and clever? I love the lollipop flowers with the feathers. The trim is elegant as well - a fantastic cigar box, now jewelry box for me.

Lia, who organized this swap, made this brilliant piece of art work. There are legs but I've got to re-glue them as they came off during shipping. No matter as it still is gorgeous. I love the lace and the bling - beautiful pearls!

Look at the inside. See those sides - she ink distressed those and filled them in I believe - how clever! And another beautiful flower adorning it. Isn't the top sensational with those beautiful stick pins? Everything adorned so wonderfully just for me - look at the butterfly - simply amazing!

Look at the wonderful goodies I received with my package. She really tailored this gift especially for me. Don't you love the lace on those old fashioned clothes pins?

The blue and gold sachet bags hold a bevy of beautiful butterflies. Look at the tons of bling on the side - yep, craft heaven, y'all! Lia really surprised me being my partner and I'm so grateful that she put her heart into this magnificent gift. I love all the goodies and will enjoy crafting with it. The cigar box, now jewelry box will be cherished forever! Thank you Lia! :-)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Happy Crafting!

Terry, I was just running around the neighborhood and thought it'd be nice to drop by to just say "hi"!

Hope all's well and that I'll see you soon!
