I'm glad you liked everything, CharmmyKitty. I got lucky finding a compact that was already pink! I hope it serves you well.

For the unpaper towels, here's the tutorial that I (sort of) followed, but I used birdseye cloth instead of terrycloth. I didn't do the snaps or the roll, since snaps have the potential to scratch, but I think the idea of adding the snaps and putting them on a roll is kinda cool. More paper towel-like. http://www.sewastraightline.com/2010/04/rolled-kitchen-towels-tutorial-and.html  Mostly I just used the tute for the measurements. They're fairly simple to make. Good luck!

What a great couple packages! I would love to make some of those cloth towels! I hate buying paper towels so much that I don't even get them anymore unless I know I will use them!

I will be getting some feedback updated tomorrow as well as sending/receiving status. My son is really sick so I have been tending to him first rather than anything else lately!

Arg, I'm finally posting pictures of the FABULOUS and well loved package I received from QueenNinjaMonkey!

First, Jack Skellington mini ornaments! They're so cute! I love all the expressions. Not sure why this pic is sideways though...



AND the best jar of whimsies I've ever received! So many wonderful things in here!







I tried to get another pic of all of my most favorites, but my camera died before that could happen Sad
My most favorites are the skeleton hand (it's a barette!), the bottlecaps (totally going on my bottlecap table!), the plastic bows, the owl and Hello Kitty bells, the little The Scream rub on thing, the apple core ribbon, the little skully ribbon, the tickets, OMG but I really do love it all!

wowza!  I think I would have to spend hours going through everything in that whimsy jar!  

The ornaments are also so very cute...nicely done!

I also love the stamps--the tandem bike is my favorite! And what a great vintage notebook!

oops--almost forgot--I was at work when the bento box and  lovely compact was posted!  I love all the cute things inside and the Hello Kitty stuff never seems to stop being cute! Cheesy
