Way, way back in 2010 I won an e-Team blog hop ... OK, it was something like three weeks ago, but what's the fun of saying three weeks ago?
The hops are hosted by eclectic Paperie and are always packed with inspiration and information. The hop from which I was chosen as a winner earned for me a fantastic Twinery prize and the extra bonus fun you see here.
Holy cow, huh? And, as I wrote to Daisy at eclectic Paperie: I love bags of any kind. Any bags. Honestly I'm a container girl in general. I own a couple of pairs of shoes and essentially three pairs of pants ... and roughly three dozen backpacks, messengers bags and purses, boxes and chests in every room and more dressers than a single human needs.
So, you can see why I nearly passed out at the sight of these gorgeous paper and vellum bags. Plus the plastic-lined, fold-down bags! You're familiar with them ... they're similar to the ones in which coffee beans are packed.
Honestly, I had absolutely no idea I could buy those bags! Guess what my Christmastime candied pretzels will be stuffed into next year?
Whew ... as you can see I haven't even fully "unpacked" the gifts ... I'm just too excited. I want to savor first simply knowing that I own these wonderful things ... then it'll be what to make, what to make ...
While I'm doing that: You make sure to follow the E-Team hops and check out the deals and fun at eclectic Paperie!
