YES!!! Ok, off to take pictures of all the awesome stuff I got! This might take a while (have to borrow my mom's camera and she's currently out), so I don't know if I'll get them up tonight, but soon! XD

Well, since it has been so quiet here, I will have to post picks of what I sent.

First is a scrabble bracelet with scenes from Ireland, it spells sailing on the back. It was inspired by Beyond the Sea by Celtic Women. I also made a jewelry pouch with the lyrics; Sailing, somewhere beyond the sea...


Then I was inspired by Kate Rusby's Awkward Annie. I decided to have a little fun with that. I made bookends from fairy doors and added gifts to the door step.

On one door step I placed a hen and the other I placed a hare in a wooden crate I made. Not easy.


I also added notes from the lyrics: Annie let me in, I gave you a hen, you gave it back again without its eggs, my Annie; Annie let me in, I gave you a hare, you gave it no care, now it has no leg my Annie; I also sent a pig with a rope leash for the lines, I gave you a pig that wasn't very big, now it's meat's all black, my Annie.

I made two journals, because you can't have bookends without books. With a scrap from one of the journals I made a scrabble charm and put it on a brown cord.


I also threw in some tea with lemon honey spoons, some yummy chocolate, and a shawl/scarf that I did not get a picture of. It was camel colored wool with blue green fringe and matching crocheted flower pin.

My favorite was the bookends as they were fun and interactive.

HEY EVERYBODY!! Since I know for sure that the majority of us have received... I need Ethertree, Edenkitty, and NightOwl21 (if she has received) to post pics of their packages in the gallery as soon as they possibly can! If they can not do that fairly soon, I need them to post in the gallery when they should have those in. I also need Ysmein to post pics of what I sent her as soon as she receives, which should be relatively soon
