okay...here are my goodies from kell:

for me: an adorable purple paisley purse which i have been carrying since i opened the box.



for my husband: a harmonica cozy, which he really digs.


ornament: a crochet snowflake, just like my grandma used to make. i hung it on the tree to take a picture, but our tree is still "in progress"...


random act of kindness: three crochet balls...which i actually think i'm going to keep and save for when i have babies since they're safer than the lead-laden toys in stores.


thanks so much, kell...i absolutely love everything!

I didn't mean to rush you or anything!!  I just feel really stupid and frustrated, having a camera, and pictures, but no way to get them off the camera.  I'm mad at the camera, not you!!!!!! 

My mom is coming today with the package.  I really can't wait!!

I finally got to open my package!!!!  All sorts of wonderful stuff, like fabric scraps for a quilt I'm planning, some homemade holiday cards, a gingerbread ornament, and his and hers coasters (I'm collecting homey type stuff for when my bf and I get married).  Now I just have to take pictures of it all, and I think I'll be able to get home next weekend to take the pictures off the camera.   Roll Eyes

yay i'm back home! i received my package from hellga before I left for my business trip so here are the pictures:

Gift for me! (I couldn't wait!) It's an amazingly beautiful box in my favorite color and it is filled with sewing supplies!! I've always wanted to learn how to sew and hellga totally got me everything I needed to start Smiley There's so many things in there but I decided to post just the "overall" picture. Oh and she included a too-cute pincushion on which she spelled out "Merry Xmas" and put a Christmas tree! Smiley Pictures of that will be on my blog


Gift for someone else (a dog fan as you can see) - doggie pushpins Smiley


Christmas Ornament - gorgeous red-white-gold ball ornament for my tree!:


RAOK - tissue holder and extra pack of tissues (i can think of a bunch of ppl in my office to give this to!):


I would definitely argue that I got the best package ever!! Smiley Thank you sooo much hellga!! I'm glad you liked my package too Smiley

I received for MrsJames this weekend and here are the pics, finally!  Sorry about the delay. Embarrassed


This is a picture of the whole package, but also of the gorgeous candy cane table runner with the red beaded fringe.  Love it! so me  Cheesy


next are the crocheted tree garlands.  I would have never thought of making these, but they are perfect for my miniature trees.


a mini stocking and a porcelin doll (which is really pretty) and a crocheted wrist cuff, and Incredibles pen which my son stole  Cheesy


and last but not least, a knitted beanie which she made on a nifty knitter

Thank you so much for all of your hard word, everything is wonderful!  Merry Christmas!!

My wonderful bf pointed out that the camera should have a mini-USB port, and it would happen to use the same cable as my MP3 player to hook to the computer.   Cheesy  Isn't he grand?

Two lovely homemade cards.


I received these two coasters.  The photo does not do the beautiful colors justice.  The present for the other person is similar coasters, but in "manly" colors for my bf. It is waiting for this weekend to be opened. 


A wonderful bunch of scrap fabric to be put towards a quilt I am going to make.


An ornament consisting of a gingerbread man with a bite out of him.




And as a bonus, a photo of my adorable new rattie I got last night.

Ooo, whoza cute ickle ratty? *coos over rat*
I love rats.  They are highly excellent pets.  The psych. majors at my school who worked in the rat lab often rescued their rats from being euthanized, even though it was against the rules to have pets in the dorms.  They would hide them in closets and bathrooms from RAs.  I always thought it was so mean to make these kids watch this animal for an hour every day, feed it and water it and teach it and love it, and then abandon it to be killed.
