Arrrrggg!  I picked up an extra shift at work today.  Ah well, the mail man and I ususally pull up around the same time I get off of work.  Hopefully, that'll be a decent distraction.  Superhooker, happy mail, I'm soooo excited.  Grin

Superhooker, I just checked yours and it's out for delivery, too.  Now I'm doubly excited!!!

mink and Tanza - I guess I'm lucky!  My hubby is way more bothered when I put too much lavender in the dryer.  Tongue

I think this is one of those swaps where seeing all the other packages is nearly as much fun as getting your own!

Baby number four is here and he's a boy!!  Time to start using all the great stuff I got from a bunch of Craftster friends:

Wooden window box to put my herb garden in when I get the pots, seeds, soil, etc. together and do it Smiley  Did you paint this, jenni?


Yep, that was an antique box that I had picked up a few years back with the purpose of making a window box for myself...but considering that I can't remember to water things I figured it was best to pass it on to you!  The stuff to do in Florida I got off of your Chamber of Commerce website, so you can check it for updates.  I am super glad that you liked your package!!  On a side note...did you know that when etching glass if you go too fast and hard it causes sparks?!?!  Ha! Ha!

Guess what I got in the mail today??? That's right, an AWESOME package from Troublet.

The loot: Adorable stenciled tote bag/grocery sack, swiffer cover, set of 3 crocheted dishcloths, three dryer balls, tin full of homemade granola bars and (not sure why it didn't make the picture) some homemade apple butter!


One more view, this time with the other side of the bag:


Close up of the swiffer cover and dishcloths. I love the "hair" on the swiffer cover. I just want to pet it.


We have already sampled the granola bars and they are YUMMY. Thank you so much for such a great package, I love it all!

YAY! I had just thought no more than 30 seconds ago that your package should arrive today. I log on for my evening Craftster fix and VOILA! Cheesy

I made a double batch of the granola for my AP students for their mid test snack (the test is 4 hrs long!). I was hoping that they would not eat all of them so that I could have one as I proctored the afternoon AP Statistics test. They ate all of them. The rotten boogers! LOL! Gotta love hungry teenagers!

I'm also glad the apple butter made it. I had meant to PM you to be careful in opening the box just in case there was breakage.

I got my package from Disco Queen Highness!!!  Holy cow, this box was stuffed full!
She sent me these awesome books!  I can't wait to dig in!


Next, I got a coupon organizer (yayayayay!!!), a really cute coffee cup cozy, and the cutest needlebook!


Here's a pic, to show the coupon organizer open, and the needlebook open:


In this picture, there is a pretty tea tin full of scratch paper (such a great idea!), the funniest water bottle ever (there is "Mr. Tap" on the front, telling you that it is stupid to buy water, when tap water is just the same!), some sunflower seeds from the pizza man, and fancy coffee mints!


In this picture, a bag for my clothes pins!  I'm getting a clothes line this summer, and now I have a place for my pins!  On top is a really fabulous jar...it looks old (I assume it IS old, but I guess I don't know for sure!)...and it is from coffee!!  Love it!!


This is a MASSIVE pile of mohair!!!  Mohair bugs the crap out of DQH, so she sent it over to me, cause I'm a mohair lover!


In this picture, a genius little twine cutter, some twine, and little pre-measured packages of fertilizer to put in my watering can!


Next, some plants for my yard!  I just got new planter boxes for all around my house (thank you craigslist!!!) so they will have nice new homes!

My pup had to come and check them out!

Last, but not least, check out this awesome quilt!!!

It is super cute!  It already has a big fan...

It was only laying out for a minute, and my doggie already snuggled up!

Thank you so much DQH!!! I love everything!!
I really hope that your package gets to you soon, I'm dying of anticipation!!
