Shotgun Bettie! I'm soooo nervous! I really hope you like them!

Please PM me when they come. I wasn't able to include the letter I'd written so I'd like to send you a copy so you figure everything out Smiley

I'm making a blanket for my uni room as it gets so cold! If you can make/spare any 5X5 inch squares of crochet, I'd happily swap you for something! Please PM me!

I am sooo sorry it took me so long to post pics, but it has been one of those months where if it can go wrong it will, lol even things that couldn't possibly go wrong did!! But here is my absolutley WONDERFUL package from bookstorebabe!!

First she had painted me a bottle with a fairy on it, a hand painted mug with the cutest mushroom, a small trinket box, and inside it was a beautiful necklace with a tinkerbell-believe pendant.



Next was a mirror with  a huge flower and fairy on the back (which was wonderful because I didn't have one and every time I would need to check the back of a hairdo or something in the bathroom I had to use an itty bitty eyeshadow mirror), and a fairy book that inside were entirely hand written recipes all with fairytale themes!





That would have been plenty, but I just kept opening packages!!  She made me a Gnome Garden! It was hard to get a decent picture, but it's so cool. I've got it sitting on my computer desk to keep me company while I take my finals. (He hasn't helped me yet, but I think if I keep bugging him, he'll give me a couple answers on the next one.



These were labled work freebies, but they are still awesome (I have a Tinkerbell obsession lol). There were a pair of socks in there too but my daughter swiped them and wouldn't even give them up to take a pic since she thinks I would steal them back. She's right.



Next she made me a purse of out jeans. She said this was her first time, but I don't believe her. It's even got pockets on the inside!





Still more!!  She was nice enough to send each of my kids a book, Princesses for my daughter and Knights for my son. They think these are the coolest things they have ever seen, and have since argued over whose was better.



So as you can see I got majorly spoiled!

Here is part of what I send bookstorebabe. I ended up having to take half the pics with my camera, and the other with my uncles.

Here is a fairy pair of earings and charm bracelet, made of shrinky dinks.


I painted her a fairy frame and inside is a poem about fairies written by William Shakespeare.


A little fairy happened to have painted her name on a grain of rice, then put it in an itty bitty bottle for me to send to her, but even on the tiniest setting I could not get a picture that wasn't blurry. The second picture is before I added the chain but it's a bit clearer.




I also sent her some fairy furniture since she said she wanted to one day make a fairy garden. I sent two chairs (one of which got broken on the way there), a sink with a shell basin and a little table.






And last, a small little box with I believe in Faeries written on the top.

Thank you, elwynceltic, for being the photographer for both of us! I loved all my goodies. I get compliments all day long when I wear the fairy jewelry.It's going to be such fun planning a fairy house this year! The one chair just needed a little bit of glue, the  post office only shook it up slightly. I'm kind of suprised the gnome garden didn't arrive at your house  in little bitty pieces Grin. I found a watering can for him the day before I packed it up, so I think he is a luck magnet. I'm glad your kids liked the books-that's such a cute picture of them.

OK well Pogo's item's that I sent are 'missing presumed in the ocean' and she has asked me to post them so she can see what she may one day receive. (PO willing)

I have pics of all but two items that I only finished just before I sent.
Items missing are a box with the 'spirit of the forest' from her favourite film on it
and a small knitted shoulder bag with a fairy kind of 'knitted in' (can't think of the word I want) sort of looks embossed.
- sorry they aren't very good piccies.

Set of cards


Butterfly wing necklace with brown/yellow seed beads - lol-pogo sent me one too (but hers was better)


Photo album, pencil drawing not showing up to well!


Pouch with notebook to put pencils and things in (notebook is inside, hiding)


Close up of cross stitching on pouch


Now the surprise is ruined (she whined at me, I had to do it!) I sure hope they turn up!  Everyone send some fairy magics to help them get unlost please!
