I received from nostephot on Friday, just been super busy so I haven't posted pictures yet but here they are.

Everything wrapped up


National Grilling Day- an all purpose man apron for the grill


Cousin Day- photo album


Share a sunset with your Lover Day- an awesome blanket that is waterproof so it can lay on the grass without getting damp.  Super rad!


Thanks so so much!! I love everything!!

I received! But oh, I haven't sent yet so I won't let myself open it. So You'll have to wait some more, too bad! I will send tomorrow when I go to the library. I should be able to get it done today, as long as I get off the computer!

I received my amazing package from Bellazeus late last week, but I just got to taking photos.

First up my group shot of all of the great items and spoilage Wink



I said I wanted a sock monkey on my questionnaire, and Bellazeus made me a Cheshire Cat "sock monkey" for Alice in Wonderland day.



For Chocolate day I got 2 hand carved stamps (the strawberry one is not in the photo because my cats seem to have stolen it).  I also got some amazing Australian chocolate.



The third holiday was I forgot day.  I got a great magnetic board with bottle cap magnets and a couple of notebooks and a pen (not in the photos).
 


We also agreed to send some extras, and I got a koala bear, some postcards, and great little books about Australia.


Thank you SO much Bellazeus.  I hope you like your package even half as much as I like mine!

TLH, you got some amazing spoilage! I love that idea for I Forgot Day.
On to my goodies! I received a couple days ago but since I don't open before I send I just got to opening it today.
First, for Stay Out of the Sun Day, I got an apron which is supposed to encourage me to stay inside and make food. I am OK with this.

Then, for Take Your Pants for a Walk Day, I got a water bottle holder, modeled by the fabulous Russell.

And last but not least as far as holidays go: Barbie in a Blender Day. She put some dolls in a jar and made it look like a blender, red feathers (blood? HAHA!) included!

She also made me a tote, which is way better than any tote I have ever made. I don't think tote is a good word for it. I'm thinking something more like Diaper Bag or satchel... There's even pockets inside! Amazing!


This lady, Margiej, sure knows her sewing machine and I'm glad of it! I really honestly loved it all!

And now I get to watch the rain, yay! When I first moved here it rained for 2 weeks in July so I went to WalMart to buy an umbrella. You know what they told me? "It's not umbrella season." It's been raining since Monday. Hm... still looks to me like it's umbrella season. [/rant]

I'm glad you liked it.  I think I need to make my aprons smaller, you're so slender that swallows you!

With 2 small kids, I need my aprons to go that far around!

Today is the send day!  I hope everyone has their packages ready to be delivered to the post office today.

Please send me a PM when you send, or if you are going to be late in sending.

thanks!
