Okay y'all (I'm southern, shoot me!)...prepare to be jealous!!!!
I had to go back to the hospital today for yet another CAT scan...so it's been a rough few weeks for me. When I got home, full of barium and feeling cruddy, this is what was waiting at my doorstep for me:
OMG...I have never done a swap before and have been so looking forward to this moment. I immediately felt better than I have in days...and I had to get in the house and dive into my package of pure goodness from the wonderful LauraCore:
Look at all the goodies!
Here's a pic of everything on display (and Laura, I oohed and ahhhed the entire time I unpacked it...while my wonderful hubby stood by saying "How cool" and "That's so 'you', baby" kind of things):
Now...a little at a time:
She must have known I LOVE tea...and how icky I'm feeling...cause here's some wonderful Earl Grey Tea.
And she knows this woman has a sweet-tooth, too (and I LOVE cream cheese). I love the top she put on it, too...."Don't assume I Cook!" LOL (Good one, Laura...I can't wait to dig in to it after dinner tonight.
FABULOUS Postcards! I adore them and want to send them to my friends/sisters...but I also want to keep them for myself. Oh, the dilemma!
"Not For Girls" candy (made by Nestle, just so you all know!) OMG, can you believe this exists? WOW!!!
A wonderful handmade/reconned "Woodchuck Journal"...just begging for me to get busy filling the pages...and a Woodchuck bookmark. (She told me that "Woodchuck" is a term in her area used for vagina. Cracks me up, I tell ya!)
The Woodchuck bookmark and inside of my Woodchuck Journal, showing the lining with all the hilarious vagina euphemisms! I have read and laughed until my sides hurt...even more than they already did from my appendectomy! LOL
This pic doesn't do this beautiful cross-stitch Laura did for me justice in the least cause I'm a crafter, not a photographer. Laura says it's her first cross-stitch but oh my!, it's so perfect! Totally beautiful and now holding a place of honor on MY side of the bed!
Now, you have to see the letter she sent with my fantabulous package:
Why is this letter so great? Well, she made me feel so good in this, my first swap and she made me laugh like crazy with this little ditty at the bottom:
Is that not HILARIOUS?!?!? I love it!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Laura! You are such a wonderful new friend and terrific swapper! For everyone else, I know you're jealous!!!
Now, to await the arrival of my package on Laura's doorstep! *nervous laughter*
