~* a veRy meRRy un-biRthdAy to mE! *~from maggi

It was a very merry un-birthday for me today thanks to my Wonderland Swap partner and friend, Maggi, from Just Add Glitter and Stir!
She also happened to be the hostess for this fabulous event! She totally blew me away with her unique talent and her big heart. Every beautiful gift even had it's own special embellished tag with a personalized poem! I am beyond grateful! Here's a closer peek at each of the treasures she made for me:
A gorgeous handmade, mirrored jewelry box that says "Open Me" on top and features Alice inside with the most adorable handmade paper and crochet cookie treats! Soooo cuTe! I adore this!!!!!!!
A mirrored box
Holds many a treasure
But what size you'll be
Cannot quite be measured.
A pink wooden 'D' soldier embellished in my favorite colors pink & black with Hello Kitty!!! Maggi knows me too well!
D is for Deb
That is a fact
But a pink card soldier?
Who thought of that?
The Queen of Hearts in her pretty rose garden sitting on top of a sparKly golden crown!!!! There are red roses, white roses, and partially painted roses! How clever is that?
A golden crown sits
Upon the Royal Head
For painting on her roses
They will soon all be dead.
A captured Alice in a jar with pink sparKly tulle and dangling beads! I made one for Maggi and Maggi made one for me, great minds huh!
A jar filled with moss
Pink tulle and some wire
With it's lid on tight
They're sure to stay drier.
A gorgeous wooden wall hanging with the Mad Tea Party scene!!! I love this and couldn't make something like this if I tried!!!
A mad tea party
Pours on too long
When you have a watch
That is two days wrong!
And my most heartfelt piece is this pretty Alice frame. Besides being pink and beautiful, Maggi put my beloved grandmother's name in Armenian on it, which in English is, you guessed it, Alice!
(It's also my middle name!)
A whimsical frame
Of buttons and bits
Will grace the surface
Upon which it sits.
Thank you Maggi for bringing your creative Wonderland into my life!! And thank you for hosting this swap! All of us have a common bond- our love for Alice in Wonderland, and you brought us all together!
I love my treasures and I love you!
