My package came today!!!  All I can say is ZOMG HATS!!  (Which was what I'd asked for- I'm covering up a bit of hair loss from my last round of radiation)



The first 3 awesome hats, and half of the two sets of little clippy accessories- they're so pretty!  And sparkly!!

And my favorite, I think it looks like Elle's hat from "Legally Blonde" Cheesy


(Ignore the wonky smile, please- stupid surgery!)

Thanks so much, Shayneblate!!  Tamalama, I'm hoping you will get your box by Friday or Saturday- sorry for having to send a bit late.

Shayne- are you out of the hospital now?  I hope everyone in our swap is doing reasonably well!! *sends hugs to all*

So glad you like the hats! You look absolutely adorable in the green hat--and you're right, it does look like Elle's hat from Legally Blonde! (Ok I totally LOVE that movie)

And I got a fantastically AWESOME package from tamalama!!

So I will post pics either tonight (at school now) or tomorrow.

Yeah I'm out of the hospital now. Ended up with a temperature of 106.5 and got ugly fever blisters on my face! Ugh my body sucks sometimes lol.
Its okay, they kept me for a couple days even though I felt ok so I got a lot of homework done Smiley

And it looks like someone is having trouble with the gallery.

writer_crafter, do you have pics of the package you sent?

It looks like its only one person so far...

I didn't get pictures of the package I sent Sad  Hopefully the gallery works for yzzilnoaj soon.

The hats look really great, especially the Legally Blonde one!

Ok so after much aggravation I am posting pictures of the wonderful package I received from writer_crafter.

This is my loot all together (sorry about picture quality)

I received a lovely card, slippers, a rice heating/cooling pad for those aches and pain connected with lupus, bookmarks for all those books I read in bed and a eye pillow/covered to help keep the light out during the worst of the migraines.  The eye pillow didn't make it into the picture because I left it in my office accidentally (sorry).

Here are the bookmarks...I love the quote!


AND my FAVORITE!

I have had these on my wist forever and now I have some.  I actually haven't really taken them off since I got them.

Thank you so much writer_crafter!

I'm so glad you liked the package!  I saw lots on your wists I could make and I figured slippers would be good for this particular swap.  Plus I'd had those coordinating buttons forever but no project they worked with.

I'll be posting pictures tonight of the lovely goodies I got from you Smiley

Yzzilnoaj sent me a wonderful box of goodies...definitely an anti-anxiety kit Cheesy

The whole group:



There's a HUGE mug, a keyboard wrist rest and a matching rest for the mouse, an eye pillow with lavender essential oil, some homegrown tea and reusable tea bags, a little booklet with lots of uplifiting quotes, and a lavender milk bath.  I'm sooooo looking forward to using that when I go home for break next week! 

The teas were grown by her sister(?) -- white rose and chamomile.  Chamomile happens to be my favorite tea. 





And, the little booklet.  I'm going to keep it in my purse.  It's got some quotes by people I love, like Einstein and St. Augustine. 



There was also a pretty little card with a lighthouse, but I forgot to take a picture of that.

Thank you soooo much yzzilnoaj!  This lovely and generous package could not have come at a better time.  Cheesy

I am so glad that you like everything.  I had a lot of fun crafting for you.  I am not sure I will ever make a mini book again by now it is on the list of things tried  Smiley I feel honored that you found it worthy of the purse!!!
