Halloween Package from Amanda
I received a Halloween package in the mail yesterday from Amanda. It included a lot of goodies and snacks from Daiso, handmade cards, Halloween socks, masking tape, and a set of Clover Amour crochet hooks.
I have added the Halloween wax paper and cupcake liners to my stash of holiday baking goods. I'll have to look out for nice recipes to use in them next year.
The package of almond cookies (orange bag in middle of picture) taste like the Danish cookies you buy in tins during the holidays, but they are light, crispy, and thin. It has taken all my willpower not to eat all of them. I think tomorrow I will try them with a cup of chai tea.
I was extremely surprised to see the set of Clover Amour crochet hooks in my package. I have been eyeing them in my local Joann's Fabrics store for a while, but never picked them up since I have a lot of hooks, aluminum ones and soft grip ones. I can't wait to try these hooks. I have a few of their tan colored soft grip hooks, but none of the Amour hooks. I think they will help with stopping wrist pain when I have to stitch with smaller hooks.
Amanda also included some exquisite cards for me to use when mailing out packages or when giving gifts to my friends.
Her cardmaking is always beautiful. She has surpassed herself this time by utilizing her origami skills to embellish her cards.
I have been trying to persuade her to sell cards in our Etsy shop. I love buying cards when sending gifts, etc. and I know if I saw these cards somewhere in town, I'd buy them.
So if you like them too, please let me know and perhaps we can persuade Amanda to start selling her beautiful cards online!!
Until next time >___<
