Okay still on vaca but I forgot I brought my camera cables with me! So yay! My partner hasnt contacted anyone to say shes received though she should have days ago... and she *said* she would mail by the 20th (but Im in the Dominican Republic so no mail duh) so Ill get home hopefully to a package! But heres what I sent her...

A dual zippering sweater and what was a fugly dress into a really cute dress! I think it would look fab with a pair of black tights, green baggy knit legwarmers, and black shoes. Smiley I also sent her some treats for her birds and dog!!! Cheesy

Ladies, I have to tell you that if we were to crown the Bargain Hunter Queen...the award would have to go to my partner, pumpkinbear!  She's awesome! 

Here's a pic of part of the package: Knit0It Mice Kit ($1, haggled down from $2 at a garage sale)-it's awesome!  I've already made one!  Glenn Miller Story record box!

Blousons to Knit and Crochet pattern book-I love the patterns!  They are classic styles! ($0.25 Goodwill on a visit to parents in Arkansas) Sweater Sets to knit and Crochet pattern-more classic patterns!  ($0 free day mentioned before Smiley) Hot Blue Sugar'n Cream Yarn, you can never have enough dishcloth cotton!!!  ($0.97 at JoAnn's-on clearence!) Five Scrapbook sheets ($0 free day), hot pink Sugar 'n Cream ($0.97 JoAnn's on clearence)

My First Storybook Dictionary, perfect for atc's!!!!! ($0-dumpster dived from behind the Salvation Army) and Building Better English!  OMG!!!!  I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!  It's got graffiti and old school illustrations...it's so awesome!  I almost don't want to rip pages out because it might be useful to write my senior seminar/presentation!!!  ($0 at free day!)

Crocheted and Knitted Afghans pattern book, it has a tiger-striped afghan in it Shocked ($0at free day!)

Now for the pieces of me that I slightly mentioned in my questionaire that pumpkinbear took and made me feel really really special.  I plan on minoring in Spanish and she made me a lap quilt and purse from Spanish t-shirts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  T-shirt for quilt ($2 thrift store in Arkansas), Brocade fabric ($0-free day), and thread (stash). 

The writing reads:

"To speak Spanish is to speak the language of spectacular temples, happy fiestas, colorful lives; of mariachis, sun, guitar bands of the moon (awk translation), rhythm and spicy chiles- a language of strong family ties rich in tradition, and children that live in an enchanted land."  Smiley

And last, but not least, my "No Hablo Ingles" purse Smiley  T-shirt ($0.99 Goodwill-50% off storewide sale!), zipper ($0.25 zipper @ garage sale), red ribbon with gold hearts (stash), thread (stash).

Can I hear some applause for pumpkinbear!!!!!  She only spent $9.68!!!!!!!!! She got everything I could ever have dreamed of and more!!!!!!!!!  Thank you, thank you pumpkinbear!!!!!
