MY THIRD PACKAGE FROM LOOBIE HAS ARRIVED!
Here is everything...
Loobie and I are both readers, when she cleared out some boxes of books she saved some she know I would like! I've been reading the short stories one today.CEPHOLOPODIA!!
Look at those hundreds of tiny stiches on my new friend! It's funny, I tried to make myself something similar once, but I never made it past about 1/2 of the head! I just need instant gratification
My necklace - please ignore the shiney-ness, I had just stepped out of the shower.
Goodies! I'm using the bookmark right now
And just for fun, a pic of my kitty who was watching me upwrap my package >.<Thank you so much, Loobie! Everything was great! I will miss putting together packages for you
OKAY! This is the third
time I have tried to add new pictures to this post!! Seriously! I hope it works this time
Loobie sent me another awesome package!
It came over this weekend, so I was able to get some enjoyment out of it before I had to go back to work today
My new hobby is poly clay! She sent me a beautiful beaded box with tons
of different clay in it, some clay tools, fish-shaped clay cutters, and a super-cute book on how to make clay sea friends
Then she added bunches
of stuff to my stash - 2 kinds of cloth, bells, ribbon - glittery glue - sea creature embellishments for scrapbooking, and... Sublime Stiching patterns and REALLY pretty pink embroidery floss!
I hope that I didn't forget anything... I loved it all! If you would like to see more pictures... Including my first attempts at poly clay, visit my blog http://dawnoctopus.blogspot.com/Guess what?!
I received my package today! Well, sort of. My partner Loobie had split it into two packages, and I received the first one weeks ago...For some reason, the post office had diverted the second package to France?! Anyway, I got it home after work, and ripped into it! I got SOOO many nice things that there are way too many pictures to put here, like 14 of them. I'll put the highlight shots here, but if you would like to see the slideshow of all of the pictures together, please go to my blog to see it - http://dawnoctopus.blogspot.com/
Here are highlights of the first package:
Group shot of everything wrapped
Super-Adorable kitty cover scrapbook! I actually found a kitty in my work parking lot today who looked a lot like this kitty, orange and friendly!
Beautiful jellyfish beaded decoration. I hung her up in my bedroom
She also made me some awesome stationery with fishes on them, some kawaii paper for my crane folding, and some yummy mints in a cool metal container. Pictures of all that in the slideshow.
The highlights of the newest package:
All wrapped up
Group shot of local items --- I have never really had an urge to go to the UK, because I thought that it would be so similar to the USA, but after looking at these brochures it makes me want to!
Cute cute cute octo tea light holders!! They now have a valued spot on my octopus collection shelf!
She also sent me some chocolate that is now gone...Oops... A delicious smelling bath fizz, and a super-cute pencil case with a pen, and a happy octo drawing!
I hope I didn't leave anything out, I loved it all! Thanks my dear Loobie!
