So 6iggle, our lovely organizer, and I go to the same school (Small world eh?). So we agreed to meet in person! Today after lecture we wandered infront of the very crowded bookstore looking for each other to swap. It was kinda funny. Here's the very awesome package she put together for me! Since we didn't have to pay postage, we decided to go for 7 points instead of 5 and boy did I feel spoiled.


So theres two embellished notebooks, a Stitch (from Lilo and Stitch)  Laptop sleeve that fits PERFECTLY (and its' from my wist)! One big Stitch notebook, a mini Stich notebook, and a multi-colour Stitch pen (Notice a theme? :p) harry potter fabric so I can start my HP quilt, somewriting impliemnts, a pink hi-lighter and an eraser thats hiding in the pencil case she made, and an earring holder.


Here's the stuff she made. The laptop sleeve is made with an old towel, isn't she clever? It's fits my laptop perfectly. seriously, I couldn't have made a better fit myself. I needed a sleeve desperatly too. I am terrible at keeping my backpack clean so I needed something to keep the dust and stuff off my computer. I promptly put the computer in and thats where it stay until about 7 minutes ao when I needed to take it out to upload photos. The notebooks are hard cover and have lyrics from my favourite band, U2, on it. Paulina must have crawled inside my head cause she picked two of my fave songs too. She even covered them, very well might I add, with clear tape so they stay tidy! The pencil case is the perfect size; just big enough for a few pens and a highlighter. Since I use the laptop I onlt bring a few pens and I am forever losing them in the bottom of my massive purse. And the earring holder is adorable! She even made little matching roses! Here's an action shot (Sorry for the blurriness)


I haven't hung it on the wall yet, so it's just sort of hanging from my little vanity shelf using thumbtack perviously used t0 hold necklaces. But as soon as I get to walmart I'll get some hooks and hang it permenently.

Thanks 6iggle! You're an awesome partner!  I love it all!

we met in person! becuase we go to the same school.. sweeeeeeeeet!
---------------
here are 4 hand painted pots! she decided to go with a garden theme to brighten up my dorm room..
we have white brick walls on all four sides. it looks more like a jail cell than a dorm room LOL.

isnt it cute? i still have to go out and buy plants for them Tongue
theres a big pot with a bee theme, two medium pots with butterfly theme and rain theme, and a baby pot with little plant sprouts!
---------------

i absolutely love this! four massive flowers with sticky velcro on the back.. so i can stick them on my walls wherever i want. ISNT THAT THE CLEVER-EST THING? gahhh.. i had so much fun sticking them in random places, one of which, was my roommate's forehead LOL. there were many laughs.
---------------
she also gave me a crapload of magnets!! which is REALLY creepy bcuz i was thinkign to myself the other day.. that i neeed to buy magnets.. and BAM! i think michela has some mind-reading skillzzz  Shocked

they are little itty bitty flowers with magnets on the back.. and there is a set of bubble magnets with really nice pictures.. music notes, inspirational words etc.
---------------
...one of my favourite objects..

ITS A GRASS STUFFY. OMFG. *points at it and grins*  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin
michela, this made my entire week. seriously. and the carpet of my room is green! grass-man is really comfy in his new home. here, he is shown with one of the velcro-flowers
---------------
...anddddddddddd if thats not enough, she also gave me this neat embellished box, a lanyard, WRIST WARMERS!! that fit PERFECTLY, annnnnnnnnd a coffee cozy, annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd an apple cozy in my favourite colour combo!


michela, thank you so much for your package! everything is perfect, and my room feels so much more... roomy-er and less jail-like Wink it was really nice meeting you  Grin
also, im sorry for these horrid quality pictures... but alas, i am a broke college student with only a webcam and camera phone to use.. Sad Sad

I love the grass!

Also, I think the cinderblock walls are pretty standard, and I've grown to love them because of the awesome job they do blocking out noise. Which is nice when the girl next door watches tv at 7 in the morning...

Thank every holy being for your cinder blocks! My freshman year I lived in the fancy new dorms where there are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, like an apartment without a kitchen, really. Nice, except the walls were made of paper. I could hear my roommate's cell phone vibrate. And let's not go into what I had to hear from the other one.
