That is such a neat idea for an ornament, or otherwise hanging do-dad to display year-round! I might have to play with this idea. Great job!  Grin

I had an incredibly long day and when I finally got to come home I was greeted by the best package from A2K!!!

Upon opening the box I found a whole horde of goodies  Grin Grin Grin wrapped in awesome papers hehe. You can bet I'll be reusing those in my art.



The first thing I opened was the little tin filled with candies and a little note  Smiley How did you know what I was thinking A2K?  Wink



The next thing I opened was these cool books  Cheesy The happy bunny one is hilarious and has stickers that I'm going to put everywhere lol (much to the dismay of my boyfriend I'm sure). The other one is a ton!!!!!!!! of artwork that is PERFECT for using in my altered art stuff. I actually was debating cutting up my art history textbook for all the awesome pictures and now I won't have to  Grin



After that I opened a bag that had these babies in them  Cheesy I asked A2K if she would be up to making a pair for my sister for xmas and she totally came through!!!! They are so darn cute! I am almost tempted to keep them for myself...



But wait! I got some too!!!  Grin Grin I was shocked to find these because A2K had mentioned before how knitting those mitts were not exactly what she would call fun. How on earth did you find the strength to make 2 pairs?? I almost wish it wasn't warming up yet so I could wear them (notice I said almost lol), but I think they'll have to sit out for a while so I can keep admiring them  Grin



I also got some of her famous socks!! I love the color combos and they're keeping my feet toasty warm right now as I type.



She made me a really fun cabled scarf that is perfect now for more springy weather. I love the red with the flecks of blues in it - don't mind the picture. I just got home and am trying not to look too tired.



Also included in the package were these coiled bowls !! I'm totally going to keep some project yarns in them since my collection is starting to grow exponentially (and even more so after freestyle's package I'm sure lol). A cigar box for altering  Cheesy though its so pretty in its own way I'm not sure I'll be able to bear it. And some handspun!!! It's so pretty - I LOVE purple and blues and greens combined and this has all of that. Is it your own A2K??? Its so lucious and soft. I can see why so many people like to pet and touch their yarns - its like a new family pet hehe.



And last but certainly not least, I found these incredible books in the bottom of the box! I've been on such an altered art kick lately and these are perfect inspiration for me. One of them shows all kinds of ways to make neat little pockets and flaps and movable parts which I haven't forayed into much but have always admired. And the other book is about creating an altered journal, something I've always loved and wanted to do. I even have the journal to start with but never quite got started on it - so now I can!  Grin



Tonya you have firmly rocked my socks (as well as knitted them  Wink). I am going to treasure the stuff you sent to me for a long time and will never forget you!!! I will have to make sure I let you know what my sister thinks too - she is going to die after seeing those mitts  Grin Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Aww calluna! I hope you're feeling better. That must have been somewhat traumatic! I know I would have been at least lol

The stripper donkey I was going for like "Tijuana donkey show" or something like that, but couldn't find a way to work on the words there  Grin Glad you got it though hehe.

Hehehe I got A2K's package today!!!  Grin I opened up part of it so far - I had to stop because my dinner was getting cold LOL but its sitting right by me and I'm about to jump back into it  Grin Grin Grin Pictures will be forthcoming soon!!

Whew just got home from school - it was a long a$s day, but I love having a couple of pages to catch up on  Smiley

Some ideas for cards - I love getting a cute punch and using some fun patterned paper to cut out shapes. You can cut the paper to fit around the shape (keep some of the paper to show off the pretty pattern) but mount it kind of like an inchie or a twinchie on plain card paper. Or you could go bigger scale and have the paper fill up almost the entire card with a thin boarder...if that makes any sense lol. It would be pretty simple to do and still be cute.

Aww those clips are cute astuko! I'd wear clips and hair dodads more often but my hair is so darn thick it never holds anything really unless I get giant hair claws or whatever they're called.  Roll Eyes I swear every time I get my hair cut the person cutting my hair goes "omg your hair is so thick!"
