Okay - here's the funny story - yesterday after lunch I saw the mailperson at the road - and I ran out really fast? Am I psychic? Well, that is beside the point - I have been known to know things - but no, it wasn't for the foc swap - I was actually posting out 2 packages and wanted to make sure it was okay that I left them sitting on top of the box...
So I see this package wrapped in brown paper - and I am looking at it lovingly - then she drives away. Not for me, right? So we head off to the fair and went about our day..
I get home - and there on my bed magickally appeared are 2 packages - not just 1 but 2! So I am thinking I hit the jackpot - okay, then I see where they are from - one is from Vermont - no Craftster stuff in there - just some purse handles that I am having to use for my next paid project (She forgot to send me a set so I need to email her on Monday..... ) anyway - funny thing?
There was that brown paper wrapped package that I was covetting so badly when I was talking to the postal lady!
AND it had come across the water...
A bit of a recap here...
First mysterious package to arrive had in it 2 awesome drawstring overnight bags - that my kids have already used 2 times!
And here is Mr Excitement watching tv, snuggled up with his drawing board(his favorite toy of all time I think) and using it as a blanket. I dont' think I posted this pic before because he has such a weird look on his face..
Then another package arrived... with even more goodies in it..
a whole set of placemats in a great color for me!!! (creepy isn't it? I would have totally picked out that fabric!)
And the really cute picture of Buster wanting to claim them as his own person pet bed - but they were confiscated here by me - just call me Customs, wanting them for myself....
Then when you thought it was safe to go to the mailbox.. ANOTHER package arrives!
And those tissues are almost completely gone by the way - some of you may or may not know but I had a really horrible sinus infection and this box of tissues arrived when I needed them the most (I hit the blood blowing stage at an alarmingly fast rate - yeah, I was suffering something fierce. I am feeling much better now - a week ago today I got a steroid shot in the butt and have been taking antibiotics ever since - I am not so snotty anymore!)
Creepy, isn't it? As if this person - who apparantly is living across the ocean from me - KNEW I really needed a much better way of tissues in the car - I had been using those little purse packs and they were cheap Walmart tissues so they were dusty and weird...
So that package that I wanted so badly that the postal worker apparantly put in my box after I walked away from her?
Another weird and creepy but incredibly cool surprise..
Purse handles! How did she know that yesterday was the day for purse handles? Did she confer with my employer to see when they would be mailing out the ones I need for work?
Really cool fabric too - This girl loves plaid. I dont' know what it is about plaid but I just love it. I miss my kilts. I gave them to my undeserving niece thinking that she was cool enough to wear them - she dresses like a little punk rocker - apparantly she doens't know that punk and kilts go hand in hand. I can't fit my fattened tushy up to wear them anymore... so pass them along to someone who I thought would appreciate them.. nope. I think she tossed them already.
Okay... also was a cool card... an Erte with a greyhound... Symphony in Black to be exact...
Want to know the really creepy part?
Yes, that SAME picture is in my living room..
Coincidence? I think not! I think this person has been watching me.. and watching me close - has the worlds strongest telescope on her balcony and has somehow figured out how to refract off the moon or a satellite and has it focused clearly on my house - then has figured out how to see through brick!
I think it is so cool that my secret foc partner has known me so well - and sent me things that were practical for me and my family - and amazingly enough got them to me when I needed it all the most!
My foc partner was - is - awesome - and I loved everything I have gotten
and a note to my foc - she sent me that nice fabric and had a note with it saying that it was an easy fabric to work with since I am getting to know my sewing machine - I wish someone told me that BEFORE I started on bhean's ows14 project! Too late - I worked through the difficult fabric and am doing great!
Oh, I guess you guys want to know who my foc partner is, don't you?
It is the uberamazing, talented and super coolRosali
And she is totally fantastic!!!!!
