It was from Brooke of Artistic Endeavors 101.
We had met on Swap & Tell and made a swap.
I sent her a jar filled with lace, buttons, and a Frozen Charlotte.
She sent me this!
The packaging alone made me gasp.
All the wrapping are distressed with layers of mixed media adornments.
The swap was for the rose bangles she creates from torn cotton sheets.
They arrived in my colors in a cotton bag.
The trouble with most bangles are my freakishly tiny wrists.
I have lost several bangles.
Brooke sent me the small bangles and they fit perfectly.
No, I will not wear six at a time, but three look quite nice.
I just had to show them off.
A sweet thank you tag.
Her Etsy shop tag is a work of art.
Embossed, Brooke's business card sewn on, and added buttons with other tiny details.
Here is the back so you can see the embossing and distressing.
Brooke included a surprise in with the bangles.
First you have to admire the way this is presented.
I have carefully saved the wrapping.
Inside were the polymer clay disks Brooke makes.
I had commented how much I liked these.
Aren't they lovely?
I have several ideas in mind for using these.
I am now to rate Brooke's Etsy shop.
I would have to say the presentation sent her ratings soaring to whatever is beyond excellent.
Her attention to small details is very creative.
The shipping was fast and the items were well-packaged.
Will I be tempted to buy from Brooke?
You better believe it!
She has two Etsy shops:
Artistic Endeavors 101 for both supplies and finished products.
Artistic Elite for lovely jewelry.
Be sure to check out her blog too!
