I just received an awesome package from batgirl!  I wish I could get better pictures but it's cloudy here today.   She decorated a desk set for my office that I'm really excited about!  She used lets of cute scrapbooking paper and my name/initials on everything Smiley  She also did an amazing job embroidering 2 towels!

Thanks again for the awesome package batgirl!!

Everybody's packages are so wonderful!!!  I have to share my favorite now, though...the package Jenicat sent to me!!!

Check it out, first up, the cutest little octopus, and a loverly bar of honey/oatmeal soap!  I am guaranteed by Jenicat that the soap is not too fancy, so I can use it!


Next up, two balls of Noro Kureyon (one of my fav yarns!), a beautiful special notebook, and the cutest little card holder!

closeup of the notebook cover.  I LOVE IT!


Works of art!  look at these two fabric bowls!  They are so exactly my style!

closeup of the multicolored bowl, so you can see the contrast and details:


A gigantic stamp carving kit!!!  I can't wait to try it out, it looks sooo fun!  


And the item that Jenicat was raving about (and rightly so!  I wanna steal it from my kiddo!) here's Alexander holding his new VIKING!!!:

Look at his little face!  and his axe!!!  


Thanks sooooo much, Jenicat!  Everything is AWESOME!!!!

That Viking is adorable!

I absolutely love the fabric bowls, though.  Think of how pretty your squishy Noro is going to be in one of those, superhooker!

Those fabric bowls are sooo nice!  I can't imagine the work that goes into those.

Alexander always looks so happy with his swap goodies! Cheesy

I love the desk set!  And the fabric bowls!
Batgirl, what kind of cardboard did you use for the desk set?  I need to make myself some pretty deskware for my internship. 
Also, I'm totally wisting a stamp carving kit!

The fabric bowls were a ton of fun!  I posted a thread about them here if you want to see other photos/have a link to the tutorial I used.  Cheesy

I am so glad you like them, superhooker, because I knew they were something I would like and I got the sense that you'd think they were pretty cool, but since they weren't on your wist or anything, I just kind of guessed.  You know, randomly.  Grin

And I had so much fun making the viking.  He's probably my favorite crafted item I've ever made!  I am so glad that Alexander likes him!  I knew he'd be going to a good home.  Smiley  That made the separation much easier.  Tongue
