|Our Goodies from Kristen!|
Here are closer images of what she sent us.
I also wanted to show other goodies mom and I received this week. A few months ago, I purchased a half day of skillz from Juls for some beads. I asked Juls to make more beads for mom like the ones we swapped with her previously. Mom wanted to buy more beads for a bracelet and earrings, but I beat her to Juls. The beads were part of her St. Nicholaus Tag gift. Juls asked what other beads I would like and I told her to just surprise me - oh boy did she ever. Here is what Juls made for us:

We also received a box from Juls of yarn. Juls had a blog post about her hoarding, and I mentioned how mom collects yarn (mom is a yarn whore). Juls asked if mom would be interested in the yarn, and I jumped on it. The box also arrived yesterday. Mom is in heaven and drooling all over the place. Good thing Juls had everything in plastic bags!
We also received another package earlier this week from Genea Beads. Her beads are the goodies we won for the Art Bead Scene Novemeber monthly challenge.
Now, mom and I are off to our friends' vineyard to sit, talk, knit and drink wine slushies. Mom and I aren't doing any enameling this weekend. We have to first saw out a bunch of stuff, but we have plans to work our tails off when we are on vacation from the job that pays the bills.
Have a great weekend!
