I'm glad you liked everything SarlaAnne. Also, I meant to write this in there, but the clear plastic is unused Shrinky Dink. I saw you had some more Shrinkies on your Wist, but I'm not a really good artist, so I thought you might could make some stuff for yourself! (The instructions for shrinking are on their website.)

Alrighty! I received from calsters a few days ago and from plucky1_08 today, so now I'm posting pictures of both of their envelopes! Smiley

First up is the envelope from calsters:

She sent some beautiful notecards in colors that are just right for me, a couple of stamped bookmarks (I LOOOOVE the tree and birdy one!), some fun star stickers, and a truly awesome scratch and sniff gummy worm bookmark (too cool!). Thanks so much!!! Smiley

Next up is the one from plucky1_08 (not as good of a picture... sorry):

She sent some pretty ribbons, some pretty blue seed beads, confetti and halloween-themed foam stickers, some stickers with messages on them (they'll be good for making cards!), awesomely cool watch stickers (I was hoping I'd get some of them like calsters did!), snowman and floral stickers.

My favorite item from her is this lovely beach bookmark:

The back is pretty swirly blue with the word "RELAX" at the bottom. I mentioned that I love beaches, but I didn't mention that I've been having stomach problems due to stress, so I have been trying so hard to find ways to relax and let go! This bookmark will be perfect to put in one of my stress management books. Tongue

I'm so glad you both liked everything.  I've taken pics and should be able to post pics this weekend.  I'm off work and will be able to get to a computer I can upload to.

Sweet! LoL. I'm glad I saved it then Tongue. And while we're on the topic of things forgotten to be said, the little polar bear I sent is actually an iron on patch. I don't know how good of one it is, since I've only used the patching material as an actual patch, not decorative, and I don't know how it held up in the wash.

Finally found my camera cord!

I got this lovely envelope from SaralaAnne:



Two great bookmarks; which have already been put to use.


A great earring/necklace set with pretty little flowers!



Some friendship bracelets and rings, and the mentioned polar bear (isn't he adorable?)



The other bracelet that I had already put on

There was also some embroidery floss, but the group picture with them didn't turn out very good.

There should be a few more envelopes waiting to be delivered!  Hopefully, those who have not received will get theirs soon! Cheesy

REMINDER
Please remember to send your partner and me a note when you've received!  I love seeing all the pictures in this gallery, but it's hard for me to keep track of who has received and who hasn't if I don't see a message in my inbox!  Thanks! Cheesy

Aww man, I'm just now getting to look at the gallery and now I wish I had put more stuff in my envelope. The first time I went to the PO it was way too heavy and the lady looked at a lot of the stuff and was all like "No. That can't go." "You need to by a different type of envelope to send that!" "If it's breakable don't put it in the envelope." She had a really snotty attitude.

Now I wanna send another envelope *pouts.* Maybe I'll send one anyway, to make myself feel better. Sonja-- look for another envelope coming your way.

I had the same experience when I went to the post office. The guy that "helped" me was really unhelpful. I ended up going home, rearranging stuff in my envelopes, taking out a few little things, and then leaving the envelope for the postal carrier to pick up instead of going over to the post office. That seemed to work just fine. Smiley

Yeah the b***h at our post office was no help either. She wouldn't even weigh mine! So I just stuck a stamp on it and put it in a box.

That's why I skipped the post office entirely and figured it out on my own.
