Last week I was browsing Etsy and happened upon this cute Sugar Cookie Brooch made of felt. I bought it immediately. I could not resist, mostly because of the pink icing and sprinkles.
When I opened my mailbox yesterday, I knew (without reading the return address) that the anticipated Cookie had landed. Amongst bills and advertisements lay a bright metallic purple bubble mailer. Etsy sellers are some of the most meticulous in crafting and packing that I have ever seen! I was happy enough with the festive envelope, but inside was a nice gift box tied with ribbon. I also received a hand-stamped Thank-You note with a cute little bunny embellishment. Upon opening the box I found the cookie pin and a teeny little plastic iced doughnut. Little flourishes of this nature are why I love buying from Etsy sellers.
If you haven't shopped Etsy much (or at all) I would encourage you to do so. Perhaps you are a crafts-person looking for inspiration, if so just take a look at the front page. It's a different planet, and one that I visit often.
P.S. My plans for the unexpected doughnut? Pendant, cell phone charm or ... ? Any ideas?
