OMG to hungry catepiller bag and i am definately using the word wonderous more often...my friend and i are trying to get the word dashing off the ground too.

Anyway, i recieved from Val_for_design but i have no camera so i had to wait for an opportunity to steal one.

So here is my lovely loot

Firstly i got a lovely warm headband beanie thingy...which i collect...excuse the pic...i just got off a flight... its the only action shot i have of it...and since i am camera challenged, i thought to use it



I also recieved some chocolate (which i am saving up for an emergency sugar fix)


how chic does cheese-kun look in his top hat...ready for any pizza eating adventures


I also recieved some crafty markers


Chai mix, which i have yet to try but it smell yum- an appropriate additon to my tea obsession considering i'm indian


I love this cool belt val aquired


And last but not lease a passport holder for my travel addiction, which is funky and in a style i absolutely love!Going away soon so can't wait to use it!

Here are all of the wonderful items I received from cinderblock.



A Hello Kitty bento box and notebook for that novel I need to write some day, pink and purple bracelets, a charm bracelet with shoes on it (so cute!) but it's hard to see in this pic, stencils/transfers from a fave artist of hers + a pic of her cat, a darling tote bag with the cutest little girl reading a book, and a coin purse made out of a cassette tape (genius!).

Now for a couple closeups --



Look at this bento box!  It's real wood and painted very nicely.  Inside, the dividers are movable to accommodate different meals.  She also made some cute felt food, a set of chopsticks and included one of her fave recipes. 



This bookbag is amazing.  I love the little girl -- she looks so happy reading under the tree. 

Thank you for such a great package.  It was fun swapping with you, cinderblock, and everything will be put to good use.   Smiley
