That neckwarmer is one gorgeous accessory! ::wists it::

Also, that boucle yarn is incredibly neat. I was thinking about buying it today at Joann's but I put it back so I wouldn't be distracted from my holiday gift making. Hehe!

Babiestarlite13 has now recieved her package from me, and I offered to post pictures because she has a slow connection and it would take a lot of time for her to do it...

Here is all of her loot:


The embroidered dishtowels were probably my favorite part.  I used Sublime Stitching's Viva Las Vegas transfers:


12 envelopes made from magazine pictures:



A Holiday Garland that I made using an idea from a Martha Stewart magazine.  


You make lots of circles and glue 2 of the same to each side of a piece of string.  It took a long time, but it was fun.  Here it is spread out:


The package also had:
Orange Cleaning Wipes
Hematite star-shaped beads
Watermelon Jolly Ranchers
Mini colored pens
Yellow highlighters
A rubber stamp with stars
2 yellow star-shaped buttons
Apple cider mix that is SO yummy
Vitamin C orange drink mix
Travel-sized Mary Kay Satin Hands
Grey marled yarn (lots of rainbow colors in there)
A star/asterik-shaped hole punch
Extra apple gum
Journal with handmade paper and a ribbon bow
Cream-filled wafer rolls- chocolate!

And the embroidery--what a nice job!  Lucky college student--food, crafts, practical items, and fun items!!

Alwaysinmyroom-- Thanks so much!!   Cheesy  I did go a little overboard on the package, I think.  But I was having so much fun putting everything together, and Amanda had given me a great list with lots of ideas!  I just kept thinking of what I would've loved to get in a care package back when I was in school, especially when I had just moved out on my own...

[I am a college student, but I'm not in this swap. I'm just looking through the shiny gallery.]

(Hi again ClauRose Cheesy *waves*.) Your packages were really cool and full XD. Lucky college students. I think my favorite of your things was the (cookbooks, because that was just cool..teach a man to fish) and the pencil roll; the fabric looks really beautiful (and silky?) and pro.

And...Mimik, where did you get snail chocolate?! Oh man, it's so cute I can't stand it.

You guys dragged me out of lurkerdom (a little bit) Wink.

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.
