I woke up this morning from the mail lady beeping her horn because she had my package  Cheesy I was so thrilled I just wanted to rip everything open...I was good though n took pictures for you all....

all the packages together, p.s. the blue one was the first one i almost started opening when my fiance reminded me to take a pic lol

things she bought me from where she lives...the chocolate was amazing and the soap smells sooo good.


package two was these great ami birds i was exstatic when i opened these, my fav colors on top of the bride and my fiance's fav incorporated into his as well I LOVE THEM!!! but it does get better  Shocked

package three consisted of this necklace and bracelet!! directly from my wist! I was so excited I had to put the bracelet on before moving on..

Package 4 got even better, inspired from my wisted items this is what cortney made me..


a netbook sleeve(i'm a college student and my netbook goes with me everywhere)
these wonderful origami stars and star beads were in the package as well and i'm already thinkin up a craft to use them  Grin

Cortney, I cannot thank you enough my package was out of this world wonderful, I kinda feel bad for what I sent you now. Huh Your work is so wonderful!!

Yeah, Melinda and I agreed on extras.
I used  this tutorial for the netbook sleeve itself. I had to alter it a little because it was for larger laptops, and I freehanded the owl, stars, and moon (my first experiment with applique). I also used a pattern for the bride and groom birds: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=351370.0. I made the veil using part of a Lionbrand.com pattern because I didn't have tulle. The mario bracelet was fun to make, you can't see in the pics, but the mushrooms and the star have faces. Smiley

Thanks Scarlet_Angel! I just received my package from melinda06sue after waiting all day, mail came late  Angry I am so thrilled with all the awesome stuff she sent me! On to the pictures -->

The box when it came (I scared the mailman, he was about to knock on my door  Cheesy)


The inside with numbered packages:


Melinda put in the most adorable giraffe dog toy for my dog, and a package of nummy starburst (her favorite!)


Rex has no inhibitions when it comes to chewing on another animal


The first package I opened was an awesome purple sleep set! A microwave heat pack and an eye mask; This is perfect, I have a glaring LED clock that bugs the heck out of me!


Next was a jeans purse! I have always wanted one of these, they are so unique. The belt is a purple zebra print, and the purse is lined with the same print. I love the idea of having pockets on the outside (sorry about your needles!)


Then, an awesome purple purse complete with a matching cell phone case (and a star button!). The case fits perfectly!


And finally, the greatest ever psychedelic needle roll! I love the colors on this!
The outside with purple ribbons (my fave color)


and the inside. She even gave me a set of purple knitting needles in a size I didn't have! Love the many, many pockets, I will put this to good use


Group shot (minus the giraffe, it was away on business)


Melinda, thank you so much for everything! I was totally spoiled with all this awesome stuff. Thanks for being a great swap partner!
