I joined a pincushion swap on Ravelry last month, and yesterday a delightful Breakfast at Tiffany's themed package arrived from Lori (Ravlink). She numbered the smaller packages for me to open in order, which included a Starbucks gift card (for a cruller to munch on while I window shop), an amazing red lipstick/pencil from Julie Hewett (coco noir in case you're curious), The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, which Neal promptly claimed, a tiara (for wearing while window shopping and eating crullers), and the most fantastic pin cushion of all time--a perfectly duplicated Tiffany's box.
I've been teased at my SnB for my swapping habit. What I love about swaps, though, is that I get a chance to expand my craft skills by making something different. I'm not likely to make myself a pin cushion, but I'll do it for a swap. And sometimes? When I get an amazing package like this, I delight in feeling spoiled.
Thank you, Lori!!
