Okay, I just talked to my partner and she's been busy so I will upload the pics of what I sent to her minus a couple I forgot to get before I sent. Warning... Image Heavy.. LOL...














These are all the things I crafted for her. I'm going to make a separate post next for all the extras.

Those little acorn ornaments are so cute! Did you make them with actual acorn caps?? The whole package is great! The necklace is very pretty as well!

Yes, I did use actual acorn caps for the tops of these. They are crocheted with embroidery floss and the tops are glued on after. Thank you for the compliments too. I appreciate it.

LOL, I was busy coming up with the post while you were posting the pictures. Smiley I am glad that you did though as some of yours are better than mine.

Here is my post, picture heavy !! Smiley
Well Ladies, get ready. I am not even sure where to start. I got my wonderful box on Monday and have been a bit overwhelmed ever since then. LOL

I just got spoiled with RhondaS proportions!! Amethyst went above and beyond. I am not sure how to show everything with out hogging the gallery so I will post a lot and then ask that you all go here.http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showgallery.php?cat=500&page=2&ppuser=124569
To see the rest.  Wink

Here is a very messy shot of the PILE of goodness that she gifted me with. LOL Minus the cat food, cell phone and ummmm project that is drying in the background. Wink all of this is from her!!



The first layer was fabric.a TON of fabric. All beautiful. There were batiks and lots of Halloween fabrics and prints and colors and solids. LOL
This is maybe half of it.


Two of my favorites



Then there was this little guy.  Grin How cute is he?



There were leaves that she gathered herself and pressed for me. They are beautiful and I can not wait to craft with them.
She also made me a really pretty Halloween box  I love it



When I opened the box, it had an extra surprise in it. The picture on the lid is a lovely haunted house and inside was a beautiful hand crocheted candle holder in the shape of a leaf. The colors are beautiful.


The children got spoilage as well, this was so sweet. Skye had already made you a card that needs to be dropped in the mail.


Are you ready for this, she sent me a GALLON zip lock bag stuffed full of lace, trims and vintage hankies




Some of the best incense I have smelled in years!! Nag Champa is my favorite and Patchouli is a close second but this is called patchouli forest and it is heavenly!! What wonderful abundance work I am going to be able to do with this!!


She made me this beautiful fall necklace. It is so so pretty. The leaf is glass and she has crystals in the chain. I really love it.


Get ready to wist..

I actually squealed (really loudly) when I opened this box.

Seriously I would have been cool if she only sent these. LOL Those are real acorn caps that she attached to hand crocheted acorns. AND she made them ready to hang.

She sent me three vintage patternsbecause she is cool


She made me a BEAUTIFUL fall journal. She put so much detail into this, there are ribbons to hold my place and she traced leaves on the cover and back with glitter.



It keeps goingLOL

She crocheted two really beautiful Halloween dollies


She gathered a gallon zip lock bag full of big acorns for melove these. We dont have them here.


I got TWO altoid tins for my decorating pleasure AND they were filled with whimsies..


She sent me BEAUIFUL stone beads and pendants to make jewelry with. So much, they are all just wonderful.








AND she sent another gallon zip lock bag of random wonderful craft supplies!!


Thank you seems really silly at this point. LOL I can not say enough. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for all of your thought and hard work. May the Universe repay you ten fold!!!
