Handmade haul

I finally got my computer back! I know this isn't enough to be a haul but hey the alliteration works, and I just couldn't think of a good title :P

So last week, I received two very anticipated packages I had from Yasumi and another from Yumeko. The first to arrive was Yasumi's Alice in Wonderland themed necklace :)

All wrapped up - love the strawberry tape


The Follow the White Rabbit necklace


Unravelling the tale


The charms: the rabbit pendant, an ace of hearts , silver clock, and a red crystal heart


Full length - isn't it a work of art? I can't get over how unique it is! I love everything about it - the charms, the pendant, the heart shaped clasp, pearls, roses....:D


Was going to take an outfit pic but I really didn't have anything exciting to wear other than This is me thinking, "Wow, finally got a pic that doesn't show the dust on my mirror" :P


(why does my head look so huge here?)

If you haven't already checked out her jewelry site you should! She makes the most quirky pieces that make you fall in love with them :) Seriously though, if I had more $ I would buy everything...and pay someone to stalk her site for me, because her stuff goes fast!

The second item to arrive was Yumeko's brush roll (which by the way also sell out super quick!).


Why don't we have cute packing tape like that in Canada?

She also included a gorgeous eyeshadow palette and Japanese candy!


The brush roll was well packed and had a cute Thank you note:


With my most used brushes in it


Yep, I can't get over the cuteness of Rilakkuma and the fruit prints on the strap, its so cheery and summery!


All rolled up


She also does Hello Kitty and other cute patterns for brushrolls, laptop covers, and eco bags. Have a look here, her creations sell very fast! Seriously I had to email her within an hour or so of it being posted, or it would've been gone already.

Hmm...I guess thats it for today. I have lots more to blog about but haven't had the time to resize and crop pictures yet! I took a bunch of pictures of various looks from the past weekends so I have a good amount to update with soon :)
