Here is the very fun and thoughtful package from TAOJ:

chunky = wood puzzle
over 20 = cupcake felt pieces
typography = scrapworks kit
botanical = flower patch
postal = Anne of Green Gables stamps
photograph = frame
label = tag from jeans
whimsical = Betty Boop tag
found = fortune from a cookie
local = Big Brothers/Big Sisters stickers
sharp = scissors
vintage = children's book
transportation = map of Cavendish
altered = clipboard
choice = journal

In an email exchange, I mentioned that I was a fan of Anne of Green Gables books, so TAOJ made a special effort to find things that she knew I would like.  Thank you so much Susanne!

Awwww... the Brownie pins make me all warm & fuzzy Smiley I like those vintage flash cards too, they look fun.
I really like the clip boards! Thinking I might do one for hubs with a WoW theme for Christmas (he uses one of my old ones for his raid notes).

To remind you later receivers, I posted some feedback questions, love to hear from you guys too. Smiley

Almost done! The last packages are now in the hands of the postal system! Yay! But both are going international... :/ might be a little bit before it's all closed up. Don't forget this gallery!

Here are the pics of the awesome package iggy.boy sent me. Sorry it took so long to get them up. My life has been kind of crazy lately. Well, here they are:

Everything together:


Some of my faves:


The coolest doohickey I've ever seen. You put paper in it and turn the crank, and it punches rows of stars in the paper:


Here's the list:
Whimsical: star punch
Typography: School Days rubber stamps
Over 20: Foam Sheets
Photo: Polaroids
Transportation: Bus passes
Vintage: trim
Chunky: Wicked playbill
Botanical: pressed leaf drawing
Altered: hand made paper
Found: Disney pamphlets
Local: Phonebook pages
Label: sticker sheets
Postal: stamps
Sharp: Origami star & paper

Thanks iggy for all the great stuff, and thanks Penlowe for organizing!

I've received from MissDisney.......

I apologise in advance for the quality of the photos - which really don't do the items justice. Not sure what is going on with my camera ATM.  Huh Huh

Here's what I received:

Some great postage stamp stickers plus a piece of scrapbook paper which matches perfectly. Also some wonderful crafted tags made from vintage paper, a set of tiny alphabet stamps and some great K & Co altered look page borders.



Here's a close up shot of the tags



A Vegas scrapbook page, a travel sign, some cute owl stickers and a pack of great chipboard buttons.



A sheet of K & Co Romanza embossed vellum, a sheet of labels with my name and a little butterfly punch.



2 sheets of scrapbooking paper and some chunky cotton tape.



Thanks MissDisney!
