I claim sheepBlue for a "learn to crochet" kit.

This is my 1st claim this round.

My name is Sarah, and I'm a high school English teacher from Illinois. I'm happily married for going on two years, and we have two dogs, one a dachshund mix and the other a mutt. I love reading, running, biking, and crafting. I embroider, sew, crochet, knit, and make jewelry. I'm very eclectic, but looking at my wists should give you an idea of what I like. I love surprises and am addicted to crafting supplies.

They all came out so incredible!! The steel and navy is my favorite...looks like winter to me.

I'm thinking about signing up...long crafting period is appealing.

Hmmm....

I will be sending out Monday!!  I am so excited!  This last package is going to be awesome and I cannot wait to see goodtimegirl's reaction.  I have shared it with a few people and have had two people ask to order something similar, and I want to keep it too!  LOL

I'm sure I'll love it!! I've loved everything you've sent so far, so why would this be any different?!

I'm working on your package today, and I'm really enjoying it. It's so relaxing to work on... Grin

I think I've lost my darn mind! (Or I'm just a flake...) Here are pictures of my a-mazing package from teriyakimoto!! Prepare to be soooo incredibly jealous!

Candy apple green...



doxie pendant and flower/leaf earrings.


bangle bracelet


owl wrist pin-cushion


There was also a knit coffee cozy, but it is sitting on my desk at work right now waiting for my Monday cup-o-tea.

Bicycles

Tote...it's already become a crafty/library book bag


Handlebar bag (soooooo cute!!)


Steampunk (a new craft for her...although you can't tell at all!)

jewelry set






Trees/Leaves

I'm so amazed everytime I look at these. I'm just waiting for cold weather!! I couldn't get a very good picture of them though.





Owls/Birds

Barrettes...I wore the black one to a wedding and got so many compliments!


And another thing that just knocked my socks off!!

(If you can't see it, that's an owl. These have already gotten so much use since my classroom is so cold.)


I couldn't get a very good picture of these either. I tried the mirror picture, and it was bad.

Thanks so much, teriyakimoto!! This was such an incredible package!! I love everything!

I'm not sure if I've already posted this here or not, but if you can't tell, it's back to school for me. We've got a new schedule, clock problems, and all the other smaller stuff a new year brings, so it's been chaotic to say the least. But I think I've survived it, and I've got some serious crafting time planned for this weekend!  Grin

And I have to share because I'm so proud of myself...I learned to knit. A woman in my crafty group taught me. I finished my first hat, and it is cu-ute, if I do say so for myself.

I like him. He's adorable!

I'm not a fan of EasyCut either...too difficult to get details because, like you said, it crumbles too easily. I really like the pink stuff (no clue what it's called or even the brand).
