I'm going to be honest... I'm not sure if I should post pictures because I don't want everyone to be jealous. Every whose already received got great things! It's just that luckdragon COMPLETELY spoiled me!

The books (Bel Canto and Jitterbug Perfume)! Her choices were spot on! Today is my first day of break so I'm finally able to start reading!



In this (^^^) picture you can also see the fantastic bookmarks (note the great fight club quote) and the book strap that I've been using all week!



My younger brother's friend, Louis, with an action shot of the book strap. He was confused. Good sport though.

And the fantastic book tote:



It matches the book strap and the reading journal she made me! I'm absolutely in love with the lining fabric. Unfortunately, as luckdragon can tell you, technology and I don't get along very well and my pictures are less than wonderful. So it definitely doesn't do the tote justice.

She also sent fantastic pens and a Texas Longhorns hat!

Karen, if you have better pictures, please do post! I want everyone to see how great the package was. Again, thanks so much!

I know.  I didn't even remember saying I was interested in it.  There's a piece of cross stitch fabric that looks like it's intended to be a bookmark so I decided that's what it will be.  I plan to put "Frack off!  I'm reading." on it.  Anyone notice the Battlestar Galactica reference there?

Love2teach spoiled me with the bag.  There are lots of pockets inside and out.  The slippers are really comfy but I can only wear them when I'm sitting with my legs propped up.  Our youngest pup for some unknown reason hates any slippers I wear.  But she'll leave them alone as long as I'm sitting.  She's a weird girl.

It looks like everyone has gotten some great stuff so far.  Can't wait for love2teach to get her's.

Sorry for my pics and description being posted seperate.  I've never put pictures on a website before as I'm pretty computer illiterate.  I asked my husband to show me.  Mr. supposed to be a good IT guy had trouble figuring it out and then posted without giving me a chance to say anything. Roll Eyes  Husbands...hard to put up with them sometimes but you can't knee them in the bits either.  Sorry for rambling there but he's been ticking me off all day. Embarrassed

I got the battlestar reference and I love it!   Cheesy

Yeah, I'm not too in love with the craftster photo hosting mainly because my pictuers are always too big for it and I can't figure out how to reduce them without making them crazy grainy, so I just use photobucket and paste the img code in here  Tongue

Whoo hoo!!!  I received my absolutely fabulous package today from purevitality!  I'm so excited...she hit everything spot on!  Ready? 

Here's everything in all of its wonderous glory  Grin  - along with my very curious kitty, Tiger Lily -


Not one, not 2, but 3 books...I love them all, but I'm particularly excited about the "Born-Again Vintage" book!  Plus candles and mint tea to enhance my reading time  Cheesy

Eye glasses holder in action!  I don't know if you can tell in the photo, but the color on the inside of my glasses matches the blue in the hanger exactly!


Adorable bag in great colors!  It reminds me of a little sundress - so cute!  I think my daughter has already staked her claim on it!

Thank you so much Rae!  Everything was just great!!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

I got my package today from mslabelle .  It is awesome.  I feel very spoiled.  I received a fantastic blue bag with a huge pocket on the front.  It is perfect for putting my teacher's guides inside and my gradebook fits perfectly in the front pocket.  Inside the bag were three books and I have a long weekend and it is suppose to rain all weekend.  Now I have reading material and don't have to stop by the library.  I got an amazing DNA bracelet and a bookmark that has a quote from my favorite scientists, Albert Einstein.  I teach middle school science so it is perfect.  There is a beautiful charm hanging from my bag and a book thong too.  Thank you mslabelle.  I love it all  Grin

It was the last thing you said on the questionnaire.  I thought it would be fun putting together a how to kit for you.

I patterned the bag after one on your wist.  I'm of the philosophy the more pockets the better.  I've already had 4 requests for bags.  I made the mistake of bringing it to school with me and showing it to some of the teachers I work with.  I'm glad you liked everything.
