I LOVE the dress!  I hope you can post an action shot -- it's fantastic!  And the owl lining = sweet, sweet icing on the cake.

Wow! Great package - the dress really takes the cake though. Or, should I say, the bran muffin?

I'm really glad you like it- I was so nervous about sending it off! I really hope it fits ok - and I fugured a little extra "exercise" would be on the cards when your boy comes home (ifyouknowwhaddamean  Wink )

I received a FABULOUS package from barbolot today! Everything was wonderful and just perfect for me!

First, an incredible mat bag whose beautiful turquoise matches my mat! how did you know?




Next a shoe bag with nylon liner for my smelly sneaks & other post workout smellies, and I love the fabric it was on my wists!



Some re-usable snack bags. So much prettier than the ugly plastic boxes I am using now, and no mismatched lids!


fridge magnets to keep me on track:


And if that didn't spoil me enought, she also sent a travel yoga card deck, and some peppermint foot scrub. I love the smell of peppermint!


Thanks barbolot, this was a great swap

Barbolot is quite the seamstress, but I must say I am in love with the pure evil cupcake magnet!

I loved it so much!  Can't believe the effort you went to.  Thanks.

Yay...my boy may be back on Monday (though he might be away longer)...he's been away already for over 4 weeks and I need him to take me out for dinner.   Grin  I'm hungry.

Soooo jealous of the yoga socks! Is the deodorant homemade? If it is, how do you do that?

I got a package in the mail today!


Only one of my photos turned out Sad

First up is a gym bag. This is certainly large enough to fit all my current gear, plus spare shoes come winter. The fabric is clearly awesome and there is a pocket inside to stash my ipod. It was constantly lost in my other gym bag.

She also made a goal book. My camera kept insisting on flash so the contents didn't show up, but inside are pages to chart my weight, measurements, monthly goals and more. There is also  a water bottle, which I needed, a little booklet of her favorite recipes, and a hand sewn gym towel.

Thank you so much amusedcreations. I can't wait to put it all to use!

I just returned from my holidays.  The packages are awesome so far!

Soooo jealous of the yoga socks! Is the deodorant homemade? If it is, how do you do that?

The deodorant is homemade.  I think I forgot to mention this in my note, but the recipe was found at From Nature With Love (http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/recipe/recipe.asp?recipe_id=417).  I personally rarely use deodorant but have been wanting to make some for a while.  This swap was the perfect opportunity.
