One of the good things about my neighbourhood is that I almost never have to pick up stuff at the post office. Only usually I know that I ordered something, but this time, I was quite surprised when my neighbour rang the bell. Surprise quickly turned into delight when I saw who sent it. Marcus, who has previously sent me some very nice fridge magnets I asked for sent me a surprise parcel.
First, upon opening, it smelled like Christmas, because there was some incense. Did you make that yourself as well, Marcus?
Then I unwrapped a badge (I assume) that is meant to cover the tank lid, but I added it to my office door below the Unicorn sign:
Kid #1 is wondering about the hole in the rat’s belly.
Next there were two gorgeous bracelets. Marcus clearly experimented some more with the resin and the seashells.
The first one is all blue and a soft material:
The second one is clear and blue and has gold speckles and I absolutely love it (I love the other one as well, just for the record).
I had to smooth the edges a little, I guess at what was the top while pouring the resin. This one is solid material.
And there was another fridge magnet, but I decided I needed a necklace to go with the bracelets so I glued an eyelet to the back and added a leather cord.
Thank you so much for this wonderful surprise, Marcus. I already wore the first bracelet at work the next day and got many compliments from the kids.
