Ok, here's the post with all the pics I took of my goodies from Pinokeeo.  It's very image heavy and the first few pics are a bit large, but then I figured out how to get a smaller resolution on the camera, so they do get better. also, figured out the flash...I was getting washed out pics, but then found out how to do it better.  There's so many pics because I have to show everyone how my partner put together a few of the items, I'm so proud of her!  so, I just had to take many photos!  Here goes....

This is a group shot of everything, I'll explain what they are in their separate shots:



My partner found out I used to work with computers, so she made a picture frame out of old floppies!!!!  talk about reusing something!  I wish I could think outside the box a bit with my crafts, I don't know how she figured this one out:



This is a close-up of the edges, to show how she put them together:



and here's the back:



Here is a journal, and a jar of little bits of info I'm to use to reflect on and write about my life:



These lil darlin's were in the decoupaged tin.  I like the candies, the colors.  and I really like the mahjong earrings.  I love mahjong!!



Ok, this one was on my Wist.  This is a bowl with a hole drilled into it, allowing a ball of yarn to be fed through.  So, now you can knit/crochet without the ball rolling all over the floor (I hate that!).  My partner somehow made the bowl out of those carnival/token tickets.  Where the heck did you get so many??  And where did you get this idea??  Man, and here I was feeling great about making planters out of old ice cream buckets! :p  These are my favorite colors right now, blue is perpetually my favorite, but then I have a color of the year (only orange is going on 3 yrs. for me right now).



here's the inside:



the underside:



and an action shot!



well, hope you liked them, and sorry for the massive photos! (not really, my partner needed the spotlight!)

Thanks, Pinokeeo, I love everything!
*hugs!!*

DOH!  the green bag in the middle with a drawstring I didn't include a close-up because I just couldn't get the pic to come out right.  anyhoo, it's for my cell phone, it's green leather and has a ceramic floral bead.

Okay- I HAVE to get one of those ticket bowls. Talk about fun AND functional. Do they make green tickets? Because I need a green, orange and white one. Smiley

Another great package!!

You can get the ticket rolls at Officemax or Office Depot or any other office supply place.  They're not expensive.  here's a link

I got my package from the amazing Hedgewitch!  She says that there should be more stuff in the box...  I say she's crazy.  This box is packed to the gills!  I have been spoiled as all get out!  

Prepare yourself for the insane amount of pictures about to be posted!

Extra long afghan in lovely fall colors!


- A book from my wist
- treats for the puppies
- Blue bag with froggie on it
- Giant sand frog!
- Denim bag lined with music fabric.  According to her this bag is evil.  The sewing machine hated the bag.


This amazing Nautilus lamp.  She wanted to do something to it but I'm glad she didn't!  I really like it just the way it is!  I can't wait to find somewhere to put it.


Angie with her toy.  There were two other toys I forgot to take pictures of but Angie is VERY protective of her squeaky toys.


- HUGE can of maple leaf punches.  Lots of fun to play with!
- Braided Sweetgrass for smudging.
- 10...  yes 10 paris of earrings!  I can't wait to wear some of these!  


Closer pic of the earrings.


- Two carding brushes for fiber
- Carded Alpaca fur
- Directions and Needles for needle felting
- 3 different prepared spells for either actual spell work or just to burn because they smell good.


Fluffy novelty yarn scarf in a BEAUTIFUL shade of Blue.


That's me and my man.   Grin


Feathers from her 2 Macaws


6 hand-poured votive candles.


This is for my man.  And he's going to love it.  


This says Earth, Air, Fire and Water.  I love it!  And when you turn it over...  it says the same thing!  AMAZING!


Bag made from a sweater, needle felted with my inital in a freakin awesome script and the way to my heart...  Reese's Pieces...  Chocolate and Peanut Butter! Huzzah!

Sorry for all the pictures...  not really  Cheesy  Everything she sent me was totally amazing!  I love it!  Thanks so much Hedge!!!  You rock!

*Does the happy dance*

YAY!  It's finally over!  hehehe
