Woot! I'm the first to post!

Here's the amazing bag that oneredboot sent me! Isn't it awesome? The handiwork is so professional.

I know it's going to fit all my stuff perfectly.

Detail of her tag and nice seaming.


And look at all the uber cool star wars stamps she used! Definitely saving these for some future use.

Thank you oneredboot!! Your yarn will be in the mail by tomorrow.

So glad you like the bag, Avian Flight!! 

I wish I could claim responsibility for the awesome stamps, but I mailed the package at the university post office, where the printer was down that morning...They said that they would add the postage later--WOW--I had no idea that's what they would come up with!!  I've gotta say that if I'd put them on, they would have been arranged in a more organized fashion.... Smiley 

 I'm so glad you like them!

Woo! Great bag!

I got spoiled by vala_amaris and the giant, six-pound ATC starter kit she sent me!!! There's absolutely no way I could take pictures of everything, but if me mentioning the six pound box isn't saying enough, I don't know what is!!!

Here's a group shot of everything all together!


There is a big envelope of card stock, ephemera, vintage ephemera, papers, etc, a bag of scissors/glue/glue square adhesives, a bag of beads, two bags of stamps, a bag of trim and ribbons, a bag of stickers and rub on transfers, a bag of dye cuts, a bag of ATC bases, a bag of 3d embellishments.. it just goes on and on and on!!!! 

This is a closeup of about half the contents of the 3-d embellishment bag:



She sent me such an amazing variety of things--poker chips, beads, flowers, metal charms, buttons, eyes, brads (etc etc etc!)



She also sent me some great pages from vintage children's books, Nepalese paper, card stocks, doileys, magazines to cut up for my own..

The whole package is just really, really incredible! These pictures, in no way do the kit justice, but this kit has definitely inspired me to start my own ATCs!  Thank you!!!

I'm so glad you like everything!  You actually did me a favor.  My husband is trying his darnedest to get me to whittle down my craft stash.  He's repeating over and over "When you buy something new, get rid of something else."  Craft stashes are never old!  You always need that stamp you haven't used in 2 years or that whatchamabob.

That said my birthday is this week and he ordered everything off my dickblick.com wishlist.  I had pared it down to the BARE essentials of $90.  Men! So confusing!

Seriously, I'm happy to pass along some goodies.  I've been trying to claim wishes that can at least partially come from stash to make way for new (to me) projects.

THANK YOU DULCINEA!

I received some tea blooms from Dulcinea.  For those who have never experienced tea clooms, they are really cool!  They are wrapped tea blossoms that expand when they are seeped!  Here are some action shots:

HERE IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU RECEIVE IT


MY "SPECIAL" TEAPOT TO BREW IT IN SO I CAN WATCH IT BLOOM


THE PROCESS BEGANS ...OOOOHHHH!


STARTING TO BLOOM...AAAHHHH!



THE FINAL PRODUCT:  A FULL BLOOM AND A FULL POT OF TEA!
YUMMMMMMMMMY!



THANKS AGAIN DULCINEA!  I LOVED MY TEA!
