KittyWrangler sent the best package. Sorry the pictures took so long, but this is a very busy time of year. I have FINALLY gotten around to it.  So here it is and prepare to be amazed. She totally spoiled me.
Here is everything together:

The umbrella is something she always has with her.
The knee high socks reflect her personal style. The photo with the socks represents her non craft hobby, roller derby.

The book of lists helps her stay organized and above it is a tissue box cover with one of her favorite patterns on it. The scarf is a winter essential.

a woven book mark and basket made from paper (something made from paper). Something sentimental, the picture of her is her favortie ever, she is 3 years old in it.

There is Aussie chocolate, which is sooooooo yummy. there was more but it didnt make it into the pictures. Something she wears on her body. Weird things. the necklace has a messed up old bearing on it. which i totally love. and the pins are from the roller durby.

We have a lot in common and i really love everything. I have already worn the knee high socks, and eaten the chocolates. I have worn the necklace and am using the book mark in a book i just started. I am using the list book for my crafts that i need to get done. I love how both our sentimental items were photos. as for the scarf and umbrella, the umbrella has been used in many photos and the scarf has as well. i love love love everything.

I received my 1st package on Christmas eve, so I have been bad. I wanted to post earlier but life has a way of getting in the way. I do have to say that I loved everything that Kaiser Scissorhands sent me and I wore the toque and scarf the night I got it Grin.


I Love these so much I have worn them almost every time I have gone out, lol.


I love these fabrics, the green is heavy kinda like a canvas and the red and black is a sheer.


The body wash is in my shower, lol. I have yet to try the tea, but it smells nice.


I LOVE these yarns, lol. I just have to figure out what to make with them, I might make some maching fingerless gloves out of the green to go with my toque and scarf.

There was also a pad of grid paper that represented her favourite gave, but my daughter commandeered that!
As well as a huge bag of jelly belly's which was taken by my hubby and DD, and the Sour Punch candy didn't even make it a minute after opening since they are my favourite candy!

Thank you Kaiser Scissorhands I LOVE it all and anticipate what I will get in package two especially the mysterious piece that you just found, lol

I just received my package from sarahj2001!

I wanted to learn how to make things with resin and she sent me a kit complete with step by step instructions she made.


Along with that were two pretty sparkly switch-plate covers that were immediately put to use.  Cheesy


And two bowls, one made from a record and the other, from fair tickets (which is her favorite bowl she has made). I really like that idea!





For the other favorites she made a scrap holder/ pincushion. This will be very helpful to me, as I previously made a pile of scraps, broken needles, and thread on the table I sew on, which is the table we eat off of also. My mom will be happy! Lol.


In action


Other favorites:



And an adorable aviator cap from my wists. I love it so much.



Thank you sarahj!

I received package #2 from edie22 today.

Here's a group shot:




But let's take a closer look...

8 Fat Quarters!  And some bright yellow thread to match.


A shopping bag made partly from a T-shirt with a cool logo (I love grocery shopping too, edie22... especially alone with my MP3 player).


And a super cute coupon caddy for grocery shopping.  I totally needed this, my coupon handling has been embarrassing... misplaced bargains, losing them amongst the groceries in my cart...  This will be a big help!


A magnetic journal.  edie22 and I share a fondness for journals...


And my absolute favorite part...  Handwarmers from my wist!  I love these sooooo much!  My office is freezing, so these will definitely be used.  They fit perfectly and the yarn is awesome (it has so many little muted bits of color that these will match almost everything)!


My happy (warm) hand:



Thanks edie22!
