I'm happy you got the parcel finally, it sometimes takes ages for post.. Smiley And I'm even happier that you like it!
Everything (except the bowl and the rose-hips, of course) is made of recycled paper Smiley Unfortunately it made the money box a little strange shaped :/ You know, wet paper Sad

I received a Wonderful package from Dontdresslikeaapril!

First up -some beautiful reusable paper towels in fun, bright prints!


Then 2 lovely wet bags!  I love the patterns and know these will come in very handy!  I am super impress becuase A) I suck at putting in zippers and B) the PUL lining is hard to work with!


And the piece de resistance Smiley  What is this little bag I am holding?


It's an amazing paperback book holder!  disguising my poor taste in reading Cheesy  I don't know if you can see the lovely decorative stiching, but the book holder is so great now I can frugally buy beat up 25 cent books and read them instyle!

Thank you, Thank you Dontdresslikeapril!

It's absolutely ok, waiting doesn't hurt Smiley And it really brightened my day.

Here we go:


A notebook with my science idol-Darwin- and his famous turtles from Galapagos. The metal part can open so I can refill it when it's full ^^



Two bags. Until summer holiday I'll be using the big one for textbooks and snacks for school and the small one for some little tools for lab.


A money box


I saw this kind of bookmarks only here in galleries but never had one. It's so handy and looks far more elegant then the paper ones! I love it Smiley


Here in action with my very new Dekameron.


A bottle for tap water with Welsh text (which is cool)

There was also a rugby pencil and a beautiful rubber with Welsh dragon, but the camera didn't make it :/
Thank you, Lynda, it was an awesome package! ^^

Also what in the world are you studying anofeles? I assume it's some college book, looks like genetics actually. Pretty neat if it is so.
