Best Birthday Stash Ever

I did a Favorite Things post a few months back on my Favorite Books of All Time. I mentioned it was inspired by my sister asking but not telling me why she wanted to know. As I said then, she's crafty in more ways than one. Well, today I received my birthday present from her. It was late because she didn't want to mail it and I now I know why. All of it was made by her. And it is all awesome. And something my nerdy bookish friends will appreciate so I'm sharing.

The Bag it All Came In:
 Then she filled it up with items relating to all the nerdy things I love:
These are bookish magnets and a journal that says "Team Baker Street" on it.
 It's a little Doctor Who supply kit for my purse.
 A notebook full of Harry Potter recipes. She put quotes from the books on every page too.
 This is why she asked me to choose my favorite books. These are coasters. I'm so excited.
I was overwhelmed by the awesomeness of all of this but this was the part that had me tearing up. She made the necklace and the earrings. The book on the necklace is Pride and Prejudice. The earrings are inspired by The Queen of Attolia. She combined the two famous earrings into one because, as she said in the accompanying note: "I like to think of them as symbolic-Gen makes her a better person but she's still The Queen Bee."

And Finally:
The feeling is most definitely mutual. ♥

No one is ever going to beat this present. Ever.

      Where have you been, girl? I was thinking about you the other day and actually sort of worried cause you've been MIA for so long.

      Glad my birthday present ignited enough jealousy to bring you out of hiding. :)
