YAY! Package #3!
I am a horrible partner! I received this AWESOME package from babiestarlite13 a while ago and never posted photos
First: Some of her favorites (which are some of my favorites too!
) applesauce (LOVE!), lime jello (!), gummy bears (!), pop rocks (!), and tropical trail mix (!) can you tell this was exciting?! This photo is screwy - Craftster's photo editing sometimes works for me and sometimes doesn't, so I'm not sure what is up with it. I tried to rotate it, and it rotated it and then rotated it back and stretched it funny.
Second: This almost made me cry. Part of the reason I've been a lackluster partner this swap is because one of our cats suddenly got really sick and stopped eating. Despite many hundreds of dollars in vet bills and syringe feeding her multiple times a day she died about a month later. We still don't know for sure what happened, but we think she developed Feline Infectious Peritonitis, which is really complicated and you can google it is you really care. ANYWAY... Tinkerbell was the best cat EVER, and the FH and I have had a really rough summer with that. Star sent me this set of cat-themed scrapbooking papers and goodies to scrapbook some memories of her, which was so incredibly touching and sweet. Sorry about the crappy picture, the flash kept reflecting off the plastic wrap...
Third: More favorites/extras
A pad of piggy post-its, which somehow didn't make it into the picture (but you can see one of them on the puzzle book), a puzzle book - SO FUN! A pair of pinking shears which is AWESOME, a GREAT smelling candle, and some SUPER pretty ribbon which she bought because one of them was paisley and she knows I like paisley
Fourth: (save the best for last!) A BEAUTIFUL rainbow lap quilt!
I LOVE this! It is so perfect for using just to cover your legs and feet when you are watching TV or whatever. It is beautiful and she did a great job on it. the border and back are pink (my favorite)
Thanks SO much babiestarlite13
You were an AWESOME partner and I'm glad we got to become friends Package #2!
I received my awesome package 2 from babiestarlite13 and here it is!
The whole package (nosy cat not included):
My starter kit... Perler Beads! You know, those melty iron beads? And she even sorted some of the colors for me!:
And my stash-addition! four skiens of wonderful cotton yarn, an awesome crochet hook roll that she made for me (and did an amazing job on too!), crochet hooks, and the most clever stitch-markers I've ever seen!
Closeup of the stitch-markers. She put letter beads on them so I can take the hook away and come back to the project later and know what size hook I was using. How smart!
Thanks so much! Package #1
Babiestarlite13 forgot to include the notebook that she explained everything in, SO I'll do my best to guess and she can add if she wants
First we've got her artistic item about herself, a card w/letter inside, and three old postcards which are very cool!
Then! BEARS! these are Great Smoky Mountains postcards of bears, which she used to work with (I don't think these are the actual bears though...
Two items from her town which is apparently the town that Mayberry was modeled after for the Andy Griffith show, so I got Andy Griffith trading cards and a Mt. Airy, NC shot glass w/ Andy on it (I guess I need to take up shot glass collecting now!). As a side note, I went to middle school in Mt. Airy, MD. funny!
Then, all kinds of goodies! Some Lisa Frank stamps (which is SO funny because I got her some Lisa Frank stuff too!
OOPS! pretend to be surprised, Star
) Glow-in-the-dark stars that rock. I LOVE glow-in-the-dark stuff. It's the 80s in me, I guess
A book of stickers and a paint-in canvas with a butterfly (too cute!), and a bath mitt and one of those magic expanding washcloths (so I can pamper myself - HAHA!
Then! (HA! you thought I was done!) She made
gift bows from magazine ads (My cat was very interested in the crinkly noises they were making and wouldn't move for the picture, so I let her be in it) TOO COOL!
I got a BAG OF CANDY!
and she made me two bars of soap (to go with my washcloth and bath mitt!) and some super cute star shaped crayons that kind of melted
Close up of the soap and crayons - I can't figure out HOW the crayons could have melted - The package was left inside my (air conditioned) apartment building, and she brought it to the post office.
Well, at least they are still mostly star shaped and still make marks
Thanks new friend babiestarlite! hope you love your package too!
