Swap package from Irina

It took an hour to get my first sale on Etsy, and then I got another sale. I'm so happy, I was a bit scared I wouldn't sell anything on Etsy, ever! Now I can always say I did sell 3 things =) I'm still learning how it works, there are a lot of buttons and things to think of, I'm greatful for the tips I alredy got, and if you have even more tips for me, just let me know.
Thanks for looking at my shop you all!

Now to the package =) I got another package =) This month has brought me so many presents!!! Last year I had the worse birthday ever, since I lost my dog the day after. I still can't think about that day, so lets move on.. This year I had a whole month of celebration and presents =) A better May this year!!
I have done 4 swaps this month, I love it, it is so much fun =)
My last swap was with the lovely Irina. She sent a lot of stuff, just look:
One bag of materials (scroll a bit for a close up on the content), wonderful blue fabric (my daughters favourite colour, blue), a green shelf (my favourite colour), a mirror, another green shelf with toys (I love toys), a pink and green blanket (pink and green are my favourite colours =) ), magic mushrooms (perfect for my magic/fantasy project, notice that they too are pink and green), baking supplies, tapestry, bowls, knit supplies, dress, hat, folding fan and trellis (perfect for my greenhouse).

My daugther have started to only wear dresses, every day, she has been with out a dress for I think only 2 whole days this year, that's a lot of dress-days =) I like dresses, it's so pretty, but I almost never wear them myself, but I love looking at them =)
So guess who smiled with her whole face when she saw this dress:
I smiled a lot, but my daughter, she was even happier, dancing and saying she most try it on her doll... I manage to get her to forget it, and hide it away.. I alredy gave her one of my handsewn doll-coats..
The folding fan, I love it =) Cute pictures and wellmade with black at the side.

Magic mushroom, how cool is that =)

I love knitting and crocheting, so this is great.

Irina made this lovely blanket for me =) Her own design.

And the material Irina sent, lots of useful stuff. I was missing a ribbon for the straps of my bikini, this red ribbon will be perfect =)
I saw someone making something out of round chips like the turquoise things in the middle, I can not remember what and who.. typical, now that I got some =)

Just like my daughter, my doll loved the dress and wanted to try it on, it was a bit big, but I can see how anyone would love to try it on and feel like a princess.
Now you got a little sneak peek on my nursery too =) I'll be blogging about that in a near future =)


The wooden spoon made to a bowl (by Irina) is perfect for my peaches (made by me). Now I only need a living room table to put this on =) Maybe I'll add some other fruits too, bananas, apples and oranges =)

And the serpentine bowl is great for my walnuts (coriander).
(All these pictures were taken with my new phone, I really like this phone) =)

Thank you Irina! I love my package and I'm so glad I got to start chatting with you during this swap! Never forget you are a wonderful and talented person!
Take care
Hannah
