I received today too, but everyone here is bound and determined that I should not have two seconds to myself to open this BEAUTIFUL box!

Haha, I'm the only adult here, and seeing as how I'M the one who cleans up, that's not a safe thing to do!
But I finally have pictures!

These were drawn on the box, so cute! I love shooting down presents from balloons!

There was (I gasped) an amaaaazing ami Nook!

A Rolf scarf! He's my buddy, even though he hasn't lived in my town since the GameCube!

Look how freakin awesome he looks!

And Tortimer on a tote bag!

My 2-year-old says thanks for the crinkles.

notice there's one on his head:

and the gratuitious showing-off of the baby:

I'm in love with everything, thanks soooo much!

Oh, I wanted to explain a few things in what I sent. For the rest of you, this'll make sense once you see pictures.
The fabric of the pouch reminded me of AC, and the lining I got from another swap (swap a yard of fabric July/Sept) JUST for this purpose because it reminded me of the grass. I was thinking, 'gee, I wish I could find fabric that looks like the grass,' and there it was! I'm sure you figured out the fossil is a memory card holder and the pitfall is a needle book. The fossil was supposed to be straight-stitched like the pitfall, but my machine would NOT do it. It would hook the top thread with the bobbin thread like once every ten stitches, so I did it by hand with a too-big needle and no thimble. My fingers hurt for a few days! Then for the pitfall, I thought too late that it might not be such a good idea to have needles in something so soft and that the sides should have been reinforced with something stiff so it couldn't crumple and poke. So be careful! I don't have an actual button machine, mine is a toy, so they don't include sharp things. I like the magnets, though, so I made those. And I could only make characters that I could find big enough pictures for, otherwise they were all pixelated. The paper was time-consuming! I had to take pictures of letters that townspeople sent me, edit the words out with a photo program, and reconstruct the bottom right corner because it had the "done" button covering part of the stationery! Add to that the fact that I don't have a photo program, a printer, or a way to read the memory card on my computer, and I thought it would never work out! I'm glad you like everything!

I received from dooney! *Spoiled*

She explain everything but I will recap a lil...


The character magnets! Looooove magnets!


Stationary (in packs of 4...of course) w/ envelopes


Fossil Memory Card Holder (Desperately needed on of these actually) & a pitfall seed needle holder (I needed this even more!) *pst* I thought it was a GC game holder Smiley very cool either way!



Zippered Pouch Smiley  The handle is the fabric that is also lining it. I could tell right away that it looked just like the grass! It came in a cute paper bag with a nook leaf on it just like in the game! Soooo cute.




Thank You Soooooo Much Again dooney!



*Funny Story about why I need a needle holder so bad...so I was camping all summer and doing my first swap. I would use my pillow as a pin cushion. Anyways, about a year later I woke up really early in the morning to find something poking me in the head. I was too tired to deal with it, so I went back to bed. Come to find out I had a needle poking in my head from when I camped a year before that! So the lesson here is to never put needles into anything but a pin cushion or a needle holder. Lesson learned.
