Amazing Craft Swap Goodies!

Hi all, how is your weekend going? Mine's been swell - two parties, brunch with the bf and a spot of shopping! I even managed to snap a coupla quick outfit shots to share with you too!

I wanted to show you the amazing goodies I received from my lovely friend AJ from Missouri Daze. Her blog is super sweet and she shares all sorts of creative projects, so if you're interested in art and craft, check her out!

Here's the package!
A painting by AJ, some hummingbird transfers (I love hummingbirds) and a cute card
Gorgeous jewellery - I had to stop my work friend from pinching the bow ring! And I am looking forward to taking the turquoise earrings and cuff on holiday in September. I think the pendant is one of the pieces AJ creates for her Etsy shop - it's fabulous :)
Templates and cut outs and other embellishments
This little stone now lives on my bedside table. Hope it works! ;)
Swarovski crystals and jewellery findings :)
This was one of my favourite items - a set of personalised notecards and envelopes with my blog name and a flamingo!!! Thanks AJ :)

A bag of wooden, glass and pearl beads and other bits and bobs.
A stash of lace, fabric flowers and other fun bits

I received this little trinket box...and what was inside??
EEK how exciting!! Coral and turquoise beads (my fav colours) AND two amethysts!! I am saving these babies for something special!!
I have no idea how AJ managed to cram so many things into one modest box!!! :)
It made my day receiving this parcel and I kept getting the contents out to have another look at them al - thanks so much AJ :)

  1. Sadie,
    I am so glad that you received everything and that you like what I sent. I am especiallly glad that you like the notecards that I made for you. You are such an AMAZING blogging friend and I am so happy that we did this swap. Can't wait to see everything you make. The pendant is one of my favorites that I made. And the heart ring was handpainted. I have a luck stone on my bedside table too. :)
    Thanks,
    AJ
