AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!  I recieved from Dulcinea today, and it is the best package ever made!  It was like Mary Poppins' carpet bag...I opened the box and all of these wonderful things just kept coming out!!!

I'll get pics up in the morning, hopefully...so I don't have to take them in the dark!  Dulcinea, if you have any pics, please post them!

And thank you so much!!!!

I'm glad you got it - I was getting worried that the box had disappeared or something.... of course, I neglected to take pictures, except for the 'mary poppins bag' - on the other hand, i DID remember to enclose a card this time!

Here are some more pics!   First, there is this hedgehog, which I have wanted for so long, I can't even say:

A whole bunch of treats!  there are gummy skulls, tiny altoids (stolen by superhubby!), a cow pie!  I remember having these when I was in Wisconsin when I was a teenager!  and a mickey Pez!

A whole bunch of yarn!  There is some that was dyed by Dulcinea, and some alpaca with some koolaide to dye for myself!

and then (this is amazing!), a giant hank of laceweight yarn, and some acid dyes to dye it with!  I've always wanted to try these!  Plus, I lovelovelovelovelov elove lace yarn!

and if you thought that all that stuff was great....wait till you see the extra-awesome stuff!
These cabled fingerless gloves!
I've made cabled gloves for tons of people, but I've never gotten around to making them for myself!  These are in a wonderful soft and grey yarn...I heart them!
and she made me TWO calorimetrys, and a lacey hair band...very pretty!  The calorimetries are so me!  I'm totally a crunchy hippy at heart, and these are made of really neato looking yarns, and they are chunky and cool looking!


And the most magical thing ever:
Check out this awesome bag!!!!!!!!!  Here is the other side:
It even has a pocket on the side for a water bottle, and Dulcinea sent along this really cute bottle...it is metal and fancy!  This bag is seriously so pretty in person that you almost can't believe its real!

Anyway, there is still more!
Three lipbalms:
and tree pretty soaps!  Modeled by my crazy blue and green bathroom!


Dulcinea!  AWESOME!!!!!!

hmmm, it looks like so much when you spread it all out like that - i was worried when it all fit into the box and I didn't have to sit on the box to close it!

glad you like everything, superhooker!
