I'm a day late posting my pictures, but that's because I'd completely forgotten how to...lol.

I received from Uluru yesterday!!

Firstly, a pic of my package only just opened:


Look at all that fab stuff! In her letter she told me which of my facts went with each item. The first is number 43: "I love the burlesque and pin up world. I adore stockings and corsets and fascinators and pasties and everything that goes with it." So she made me a fascinator hair slide and pasties!


I was having a very unphotogenic day yesterday, so no action shots, but I wore the fascinator to work today Cheesy

Next, number 52: "I carry a canvas bag with me everywhere", number 3: "I would love to have long bright red hair like The Little Mermaid", and number 7: "I want to start wearing bright colours like blue, green and yellow." I got a beautiful turquoise canvas bag with a sparkly mermaid on it:

I almost don't want to take it out with me cuz I don't want to get it dirty, but I also can't wait to show it off!

Number 82: "I want to amass a collection of tissue paper in all different colours."

So many colours....drool... lol

89 and 90: "I'm a very girly girl, I love hearts and flowers...I also love lace and frills and bows."

Look at this collection of ribbons! And I love the little bow Uluru put on the bag Smiley

Number 13: "I want to learn to cross-stitch again. (I used to do it when I was little.)"

A kit to get me cross-stitching again! I especially love the little book of patterns she put together for me:


And now, my absolute favourite part:
Number 94: "I have about 2000 photographs sitting on my laptop doing nothing from the last 2-3 years."
Mini photo magnets and a calender made of my favourite pictures!

(She wrote "you are very pretty and you have lovely photos" on the envelope, so now I luff her even more Smiley )

A better picture of the calender-y goodness:


And inside the envelope:

Uluru asked me to send her a dozen or so of my favourite photos, and the only way we ended up managing it was by friending each other on Facebook and creating an album that only she could see. What I didn't know was that she then stalked my Facebook to get the pictures for these photomagnets! Excellent sneaking Uluru!!

Thank you so much for everything Uluru!!

I received from StephanieGravatt and just let me tell you, boy did I get an awesome package!!!

I love The Simpsons, and groundskeeper Willie just happens to be one of my favorites!


I love dreamcatchers! This is gorgeous too, the picture doesn't do it justice, it is way more beautiful in person.


And I saved my favorite for last. I have a goat, his name is Bob. This is an inside joke between my mother and I.  I absolutely love love love this! I just have to find the perfect place to put it.


And a picture of the beauty himself : )



I absolutely love this pachage!! : ) Thank you so so much StephanieGravatt!

Bexieboo, glad you liked the package!

And mrs.benjimadden - Bob is, truly, a beauty! Both in real life, and in his portrait. Is it a wallhanging, cushion, tote? Either way, very cute! The dreamcatcher is beautiful too!

Wow! These are all turning out so well Cheesy


Here's the package sarahj2001 sent me. There was a lot of good spying and discovering done here.
The first thing is a cozy blanket in fall colors. I think it's perfect for reading in.


While I'm at it I can have warm feet

and a warm stomach.

Good idea, no?

She also cut this beautiful illustration like one on my wists. I am so glad I got this!

Here's a detail:


I also have a new friend to keep me company.

This is even cuter than the one on my wists. Any suggestions for a name?


Thank you again for my wonderful package! Cheesy

A serious amount of time went into that last package ( or sarahj2001 is an incredibly fast worker).  I love the blanket (who wouldn't?) and that paper cutting is just beautiful.
