I got my package from Disco Queen Highness!!! Holy cow, this box was stuffed full! She sent me these awesome books! I can't wait to dig in!
Next, I got a coupon organizer (yayayayay!!!), a really cute coffee cup cozy, and the cutest needlebook!
Here's a pic, to show the coupon organizer open, and the needlebook open:
In this picture, there is a pretty tea tin full of scratch paper (such a great idea!), the funniest water bottle ever (there is "Mr. Tap" on the front, telling you that it is stupid to buy water, when tap water is just the same!), some sunflower seeds from the pizza man, and fancy coffee mints!
In this picture, a bag for my clothes pins! I'm getting a clothes line this summer, and now I have a place for my pins! On top is a really fabulous jar...it looks old (I assume it IS old, but I guess I don't know for sure!)...and it is from coffee!! Love it!!
This is a MASSIVE pile of mohair!!! Mohair bugs the crap out of DQH, so she sent it over to me, cause I'm a mohair lover!
In this picture, a genius little twine cutter, some twine, and little pre-measured packages of fertilizer to put in my watering can!
Next, some plants for my yard! I just got new planter boxes for all around my house (thank you craigslist!!!) so they will have nice new homes!
My pup had to come and check them out!
Last, but not least, check out this awesome quilt!!!
It is super cute! It already has a big fan...
It was only laying out for a minute, and my doggie already snuggled up!
Thank you so much DQH!!! I love everything!! I really hope that your package gets to you soon, I'm dying of anticipation!!
Ok, so I hope that this will work this time! I've been trying to upload my pics, and it keeps making my windows crash!
I got the most wonderful package from Phizzy!!! Every single thing is wonderful!
Firstly, Phizzy made me this cute little art piece! It is in a heart shaped frame, and it will look perfect on my wall:
Next, she made me a dotee doll!!! This is so awesome! The body is all felted wool (I think needle felted?) the face is painted, and there are tiny little beads around the edges:

Check out this sweet little heart! It is hanging on my inspiration board now...I love the buttons!
These notecards are rockin! They have little maps that show elevation lines and stuff...very cool!
These two magnets are waaaayyy too cute for my fridge! They are on my memo board in my studio room.
Next, Phizzy made me this really lovely little notebook...It is a moleskine (love!!), and the cover is all Phizzy-fied, and totally rad. Front:
lastly, this amazing pair of earrings!!!! They are leather, and there are little acorns stamped or embossed on (something like that...can't really tell). They are just sooooo cute, and I love them!!
I wore these earrings to my spinning group this morning, and all the ladies were in love with them too! I live in a town called Royal Oak, so everyone here is a little partial to oak leaves and acorns. I can't normally wear earrings very much, because dangly ones are too heavy, but these are so super-light, I forgot I had them on!!
Thank you sooooo much Phizzy!!! What an awesome package! I hope you like yours just as much!!

She also sent a bag of tiny candy bars (yum!) and the best food ever...the tiny pecan pies!
