Oooo coffee massage bars sound interesting. I love the monkey pillows, the ear cuffs and custom made eyeshadow...cool!

I received today from Sylvani! The package was wrapped up with a note from the USPS saying it had been damaged during shipping, but everything appears to be ok!

Here is the whole package...cool fabric, candy, stickers, card, crocheted hears, and a drawstring bag.


The purple crocheted heart wreath is so beautiful!


Here is the cute drawstring bag. Sylvani had some struggles making it, but i thought it turned out really nice!


Finally the pretty card....


Thank you so much Sylvani! The package was wonderful! Grin

Haha that pic of Faox on the copy machine is so funny! I also think Rupert looks adorable on the surfboard.

Peanut Butter made it home safely today  Cheesy.

Here he is with all the goodies he brought back...

The salt water taffy is actually from a Virginia Beach company, Forbes. I already cracked it open and it is delicious!

The scrapbook Alexampersandra made is truly beautiful! We both ended up with library pics in our scrapbooks, since we both work at libraries.
I had trouble getting decent pictures of the scrapbook, but here is my favorite page...

It's pictures from Mount Trashmore, a landfill that was turned into a park. I just love the name!

Alexampersandra also made some great magnets that are already up on the refrigerator.

The no cursing one is actually like the signs they have all over the place on the ocean front in Virgina Beach. I thought that was pretty funny, I'm surprised they don't get stolen or defaced all the time.

Thanks Alexampersandra! I'm glad Peanut Butter had such a fun time with you. Grin

That shrine is cute!

Since Sylvani seems to be having camera problems, I am posting pics of the package I sent to her.

First here is the card

It is a shadow box style card, with a needle felted fox in it, since foxes are her favorite animal

The fox is able to be removed


I made her several pairs of earrings



She also requested hair pins/sticks, which I have never made before so I gave it a try. I also made a beeswax floating heart candle and a needle felted heart.


Finally, here are the treats I sent. Some are ones she really wanted to try that are not available in Germany.

Peanut Butter looks so cute enjoying the wine!

The BF and I were lazy this new years and just ended up getting take out and watching a movie at home with Anana.


I tried to get a picture if front of the TV right at midnight but it didn't work out that well (the Pepsi ad is creepy in the background)...

And inside the bag was a cold weather outfit! A hat, mittens, and booties!

I was too busy eating to get photos of Peanut Butter with any of the Thanksgiving food... oops! But I did take photos today while we were getting some crafting done.
Cute! I love the picture of him with the measuring tape.

Anana came to my small family Thanksgiving. Here he is at the table before we started eating...


The next day the bf and I took Anana on a scenic drive. Here he is looking at over the Bay Area, with the Golden Gate bridge in the background.
