I received my package from crazyda79 like, a week ago, but I've been HELLA BUSY. I'm actually way less busy now that class has started. Anyway, here's what she sent me:



This sweet magnet, which is on my fridge.



Paul's song writing pen. : )



A cool picture frame. I need to obtain a picture for it though.



This TOTALLY SWEET painting which is residing above a drawer unit, on display.




And this AWESOME BAG. Of course it was actually signed by the Beatles. : )


Thank you so much, Crazyda79!!

Let the swap envy begin: 

Magnet? Schweet!
Paul's pen?  LOL!  Love it!
Picture frame?  Oh yes, must have one those.

So glad you liked everything, Monica!  It was tons of fun to make for you! 

I think I gotta whip me up one of those coffee cozies/wrist things now too.  Cheesy That crazy stitching was the first time I used the free motion quilting foot on my sewing machine!  That was a blast to do...gotta do more of it.

BTW:  Hey kiddo, I luvers those sock monkey lounger pants!   Cool  They are the bestest!

Hey thanks everyone for the compliments on the Yellow Submarine! I really appreciate it! It was a design I found on the internet but did a little of my own adaptations to it. 

BTW/FYI:  I'll probably post it over on the Craftster Glass Board, too.  Cheesy  Just for sharing purposes....or bragging rights....whatever you want to call it!  Wink

So I got home yesterday (Saturday) from being gone all day only to find a note from the mailcarrier.  They had a package for me and I needed to pick up from the post office.  *sigh*   Not only do I have to wait until the long holiday weekend is over, I have to wait until Friday to get it.  That's my next day off and the only time I can get to the post office.  Unless I can talk the hubster in picking it up earlier. 

*sigh*  I have a severe lack of patience.  The waiting is going to maim me....I don't think it'll kill me....just maim me but good.  Grin

LOL!  I would whole heartedly agree....However, I think the hubster's getting a little Beatled out.  I've DVR'd every Beatle movie, anthology and documentary that's on this week.   Wink

In addition to re-reading The Beatles's Recording Sessions "The Official Abbey Road Studio Session Notes" book. An excellent read by the way.  I'd highly recommend it.

And last but not least....I've resurrected my old Beatles cassettes.  Yes, I said cassettes. (and yes, I know I am that kind of lame and old.)  I never reinvested to get my collection into CD's.  Which is a good thing since everything is MP3's now anyway.  Grin

Got to admit though.....there is nothing like listening to the Beatles on a record player though....Too bad I didn't keep my old albums and stereo.....   Grin

So needless to say, it's been a Beatles weekend for us. I'm lovin' it.  Hubster is getting a bit weary of it.  Grin

My folks got rid of the LPs they had as well. Sad Thankfully my aunt kept her copies of Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper's- in mint condition- and gave them to me to start my collection about 10 years ago. Smiley Sgt. Pepper's still has the insert sheet- uncut! It's the Canadian release, and the vinyl is this awesome pearly gray colour. My vinyl collection has expanded considerably over the years, but those two remain in my top favourites.

I received from hippiejo74 today! Smiley I swear when the post office sees something marked fragile, they bash the box against every conceivable surface. It was pretty dinged up, but luckily everything survived the trip!

First up is this cute box, unfortunately the lid is stuck and it won't open, even tried jimmying it with my keys. Sad



Next up are these adorable earrings:



Then this fab painting:



And some delicious smelling soap!



She also included a couple ends from some Beatles fabric for me, probably because I believe I mentioned trolling every Wal Mart on a road trip and never finding it!



I think they may turn into a Christmas stocking......

Thanks for everything, hippiejo74!

No worries on the box- I could probably jimmy it with a knife, but with how accident prone I am tonight I didn't want to try! Wink I'm so antsy for your parcel to arrive- with the long weekend having passed now, it should be on its way!

"Yesterday....All my troubles seemed so far away....!"

Why do I croon such lovely words?  Because I was able to finally get my SWAP package out of postal jail yesterday, that's why!  It was a "Good Day, Sunshine!"

Instead of getting an "Old Brown Shoe"  I got two new black ones with an awesome Beatles stencil on it. Happy feet, indeed.....  I couldn't "HELP" myself from tapping out in time with with the tune "Blackbird"!
"Blackbirds sining in the dead of night...."


Side view:

(BTW: they fit me very well!)

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Photo frame!


Ringo, my good chap!
"I'm Happy Just to Dance with You!"

These are three images that KidWithKemikals whipped up on her computer!  LOVE THEM!  They are very schweet!

And last but not least for certain! 
This awewome tote!
All together now....."We all live in a Yellow Submarine, a Yellow Submarine, A Yellow Submarine."


".....and in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make...."

Thanks Monica!  I luvers the swap package, awesome job!

I know this is a really old thread but I HAD to bump it!  I know you guys, as fellow Beatlemaniacs, will understand me and my insane level of giddiness! 

I'm going to see RINGO STARR in concert in July!  SQEEEEEEE!  Cool Grin Cool Grin

Seriously!  I'm so jazzed about this...you can't even begin to imagine how much.  We have 8th row and center of the center section tickets!  You can't get better seats than that! 

Now, please forgive me with my bragging....but you guys will understand me.  Not everyone gets that level of "SQUEEEEE" when it comes to the Fab Four.
