Oh WOW! I am the first to get to post!
So ......I recieved ~! *picture twirling happy dancing*  Cheesy

I got my package from our lovely organizer, Craftygurlllll, and boy did kiddo and I get some treasures!!
First off...
I asked for  Crazy Kitchen coasters for my kitchen and  if she wanted to give away some of her pottery as I LOVE pottery to send it on and...voila!Beautiful!!! (Ok, gotta know where ya got the wooden disks! i have been looking for some! lol) I just adore the lovely spoon rest leaf you hand crafted for me! THANK YOU!


Next up, My awsome kitchen towels! I LOVE these and I can never have too many kitchen towels as I am a cronic hand washer and go thru several a day! haha   I just love teh embroidery she did on these! There is even a church in the middle of town!...I like to think the veggies are headed into town in this pic  Cheesy


I mentioned I would love a book bag cause I read a lot and take my book and projects with me everywhere...and she granted that wish too! With an "overdue: bookmark that is too cute!


Next, I looked to find some happies for my kiddo! An adorable necklace set with pin (how did you know I call her monkey!? lol)


and finally to keep from picture overload here I combined the rest in a shot Smiley
Some plastic stain glass veggies kit to paint with kiddo and she sent along magnets to use on  the backs if we wish, as well as a pretty blue fat quarter, floss, and the cutest day of the week mice transfer!


Thank you so much for everything! I can only hope you like your package half as much as I adore mine!!!
Craftster hugs!!!

Just received my package from Im Sew Silly!  Love it all!   :DShe has mad wood burning skills, check out this awesome tray:



The sides have scrolly flowers all over them & the bottom is covered with glass to protect the very awesomely embroidered sugar skull.  It even has my craftster name, and she made it look like it was stitched(notice the needle on the end of gurlllll, how cute is that. Wink)

Next a large button with a skein of yarn & knitting needles:



Eight napkins with the nicest beaded napkin rings, all ready to embroider on.  They match the dining room *perfectly*:



And a rockin' kitchen towel:



Thanks again Im Sew Silly! Grin

I am so happy you like it and I couldnt help but to giggle at your comment of the 'mad wood burning skills' as I have never been told that one before.  Cheesy

Here is a pic I took before it left here  that shows the sides of it. (hope its ok I added this pic)



and I am so happy the purple is right for your dining room. LOL I think I did as much chasing beads as I did stringing them for the napkin rings since Kiddo was 'helping' me  Cheesy

I absolutely LOVE what you sent me Smiley

and you havent shared yet where you found the wooden disks!  Wink

Your wood burning makes mine look like a hack job! Cheesy  Thanks for taking a picture of the sides, my camera was not cooperating! Wink

Oh, the coasters were bought from Pat Catan's, my local craft store, but I think only Ohio has Pat Catan's Huh  I found them in the wood section & they are made by Darice.  That store is completely awesome, and has *EVERYTHING* except fabric. Cheesy

 I got a fantastic package from Poyupop today!  I LOVE all the goodies she made!

I found my camera in the abyss that is my kitchen counter, so I'll be posting pics tomorrow (it's too dark in my apartment to take pics tonight).

It was great to finally meet up with another Craftster Cheesy
