Secret Pals Revealed

It's that time again - Secret Pal rounds are ending. I've had two terrific pals, each unique and special in their spoiling in their own way.

My Blogger SP8 pal revealed herself from across the pond. Amber is a mixed media artist who makes unique elemental dolls. How honored I felt to receive one of her incredible dolls in my final package!! She also sent me this beautiful handmade heart, which is now hanging from my computer desk so I can see it every day. Rounding out the package was yarn - oh, the yarn! Colinette, angora, hand-dyed laceweight and the list goes on... Making the package more special is the fact that Amber is going through a tough time right now. Even though she's struggling, she took the time to create, just for me. And that makes a pal feel truly special. Stop by her blog and check out her work!

My Knittyboard Secret Pal final package also came to me from across the pond, but in a different way. My pal sent me tea that traveled with her to the States all the way from London, along with some yummy looking Mexican hot chocolate mix. I can't wait to try them! A
lso in the package was origami paper, a picture frame, and wonderful feltable wool. Lastly was Found, a fascinating book I've been wanting to get my hands on for some time. I took it out of the package, squealed with delight, and immediately sat down to read it. Just like a cat, my husband shimmied up to see what all the excitement was about and so I left him with the book to get a drink. When I came back, he was curled up on the couch reading away, gripping the book's spine like a two year old unwilling to share. Several hours later, I got my book back with a request from him to thank my pal for "a cool book!". So, Nicole (Qeltic), thanks for a great read. But there's more - thanks for being such a terrific pal - the ecards, emails, gifts and blog comments have all made me feel like a princess. Consider me terribly, wonderfully spoiled.

I've seen Amber's stuff before, she really is quite talented. I think gifts that are handmade are a little extra special too (not that I would reject any of the store bought ones either!)
