Look at all this loot! The only requirement was 12 vintage buttons but Oiyi also included tea, crocheted flowers, a skein of cashmere blend (!) yarn, scented candle and lip balm, a cookie press, decorative muffin cups, and a cookie recipe book. So many goodies that I don’t know what to enjoy first? The cookie book is *amazing*! It’s one of those rare cookbooks that is so simple but so appealing that I want to make EVERYTHING in it. A lot of recipes call for raw sugar or rolled oats or dried fruits. Mmmmm….almost justifiable as healthy-ish if you can ignore the stick of butter each recipe calls for. The other nice thing is that most of the recipes make smaller batches of cookie (20 to 24), perfect for someone living alone and determined not to binge on cookies all day. Thank you Oiyi for this awesome package! I can’t wait to put everything to good use. (Thanks also to shim+sons for organizing the swap.)
Finally, some mail going in the other direction. My friend got my embroidered onesies in the mail today and they fit her little boy perfectly. Good thing I didn’t procrastinate on it much longer…or they wouldn’t have fit!
My little crafter’s heart is bursting with joy. Blogs and emails are nice but snail mail is best!
