I got my package yesterday!  I absolutely love it!  If you ever get to swap with frix220, she is an amazing and thoughtful partner.  She obviously thought it out and the entire package was WONDERFUL!  I am posting the pic I took of the whole thing, but there are a ton of pics and close-ups on my blog on today's post!

Here are all my goodies!!  Definately worth a visit to my blog to see close up!

There 3 adorable frames in the back, 2 with cute little sayings on them!  There is a pretty hook case (in the front) and a pincushion, complete with red, white and blue pins (in the upper left).  There is a case for cards and cash (behind the pincushion) a tissue holder (behind the hook case) and a sunglasses cozy (above the hook case to the right).  The "D" is for our last name and she even put our names on the back, which made me cry since my hubby is deployed.  It is hanging with honor on my front door.  There is a bag of Army men for my kidlets (in front of the frames) and some Army stickers.  The camouflage egg is full of yummies!  On top of the hook case are three dog tags, all of which are on my keys now!  One says "I love my SSG!", another is a pinup-style Army woman (neat since I am an Army vet) and the other is covered in patriotic words.  The cute little button things on the red bag on the hook case?  The cutest little magnets in patriotic themes! And the little red bag now holds my contact case and spare bottle of fluid in my purse!

I received my package last week (sorry for the delay in posting...pregnancy has a way of killing your free time as well as your memory!)

Starlisa was my wonderfully crafty partner.  She crafted several lovely gifts for me as well as some to send to my hubby in Afghanistan...and man oh man is she quick!  She sent early!

Thank you so much starlisa!!


This is the whole package.  A pillow case with space for my and the baby's picture, wool socks, pens and a zip case to hold them in, a camera case with the Keystone ( for Pennsylvania) on it, and a photo holder with George's unit crest on it.

Here is a close up of the photocase...which is rather impressive!

Well, as an Army wife I can always find situations that require the WTF? statements.

The plan was to embroider it on the t-shirts, but my sewing machine has gone bonkers!  Whisky Tango Foxtrot!!  Angry

So glad you liked the cozy!  I love making them!
