I GOT MY PACKAGE TODAY!
I am home with my DD and I was SO hoping I would receive it today! The above is a photo of what the wrapped gifts look like (before I hide them from myself
*sings softly to myself* Small paper packages, tied up in strings, these are a few of my favorite things....
HERE IS WHAT I RECEIVED FROM MY PARTNER (rockmygypsysoul) FOR DAY ONE:
I am really playing on my "Queen Bee" status
and adore this mug! I have used it already! And I love the colors she used too! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HERE IS WHAT I RECEIVED FROM MY PARTNER FOR DAY TWO:
I have already hung it up on the wall going up into my craft room and put a photo of me any my son in it! It's so great and colorful!HERE'S WHAT I RECEIVED FOR DAYS THREE AND FOUR:
The items for day three are three little felt envelopes with little felt "papers" inside. I love these b/c they are durable and reusable for my students when we learn about the post office.
The item for day number four made me go
! I LOVE anything that is jewelry and is silver and about my children, and this item fit all three criteria! HERE'S WHAT I RECEIVED FOR DAY FIVE:
A box full of beads all the colors of the rainbow, memory wire, and jewelry "pliers" (I don't know what they are called.). I love it! I have always wanted to learn more about jewelry making, and I do really like the wraparound bracelets. I can't wait till I have time to sit and make one!HERE'S WHAT I RECEIVED FOR DAY SIX FROM MY PARTNER:rockmygypsysoul made this great painted on wood sign for me from one of my favorite "classroom" quotes on pinterest! I can't wait till Monday to hang it in my classroom! (All the other teachers are jealous of all the Craftster items I have. )HERE'S WHAT I RECEIVED FOR DAY SEVEN:
Ok, would it be cheesy to tell everyone that I used some white cotton fabric that I had in my stash, and a fabric stamp pad to make FABULOUS LABELS USING THESE FABULOUS NEW STAMPS??!!! Including my coveted QUEEN BEE stamp?
?? And YARN stamps??? And even a butterfly stamp that can be used for my DD's Bat Mitzvah???!!!! I AM SOOOOO HAPPY!HERE'S WHAT I RECEIVED FOR DAY EIGHT:
This gift is so awesome that I had to post TWO photos of it! I am SO proud of my tattoos, but no one can see them unless it's the middle of summer (my back and ankles are covered with tattoos)...I'm indeed chubby
, and some would say I'm awesome too!
I can't wait to wear this shirt!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!HERE'S WHAT I RECEIVED FOR DAYS 9 & 10:
rockmygypsysoul created four beautiful works of art for me! I want to wait till after Xmas when I have more money, to find some nice frames to put these in and find a special place to hang them. They are so summery and they make me smile!
She also made me an AWESOME and COLORFUL wreath for my classroom in a rainbow of fabric colors, with a painted sign that says: Miss Barbara's Class. I opened the gift this morning and brought the wreath to school and hung it up right away. One of my students notices right away if something is different in the classroom, so she noticed it and she gives it two thumbs up! HERE'S WHAT I RECEIVED FOR DAY 11:
A painted triptych!
I love love love it! I already laid out how I want DH to put it up on the wall in our livingroom....the way it's painted, it looks like a love story about us. Just one bird in the small painting, then two birds who look like they're getting to know each other in the medium painting, and then two birds sitting "beak to beak"! And it has cherry tree limbs in the painting-I love cherry tree blossoms! THANK YOU HERE'S WHAT I RECEIVED FROM MY PARTNER FOR DAY 12:
It is a beautiful rainbow beaded mobile! I've already added some rainbow ribbon to the top, and it's now hanging in the corner of my bedroom! It's beautiful!
(I'm sorry I switched up the postings for days 11 & 12.)HERE ARE THE EXTRAS I RECEIVED FROM MY PARTNER:
A really nifty melty bead(?) shape of Texas! I like the colors! And a rainbow swirl pendant! It's been so busy here I haven't had a chance to breathe but when things calm down, I'm going to find an outfit I can wear it with. It's so cool!
Thank you, rockmygypsysoul, for the WONDERFUL gifts! I can tell that you put a lot of thought and effort into each of them. I am sorry that many of yours went missing, but I do hope you enjoy what did make it to you.
