Nice packages.

I am taking a bit of a break from package 3, but things are going along.

Rosyposie - could that be a bit that attaches to a drill so you can add a couple of pieces of wire and twist them together??  I can't quite tell from the pic.

Package 2

I received my package from Rosyposie while I was away and - after kissing the husband and dog hello - I tore into it when I got home from the airport!
And I was Amazed! Excited! and Delighted!!!!!

Utilizing her "best craft" she created a Hankie Skirt for me from this amazing fabric!!!!  (I don't have a full length mirror and no one was around to photograph me in it when I tried it on but it fits beautifully!


Then she made me "something from my Wist" a set of pillow cases with little stick people on it! (i love these)


She included some extras (because she always spoils me!!!)
A super cute horsie mug rug (now gracing my desk at my office)


Some Nantucket Notecards - These will get a lot of use! a beautiful killer whale sketch notecard with a personal message and some Blue Gummy dolphins (gone in a flash so they didn't make the picture lol) that reminded her of the blue in the notecard of Lake Tahoe I had sent to her


Thanks again Rosy! I love love love everything especially that skirt!!!

You're welcome!  I had a great time making everything.  I would love to see an action pic of the skirt...I am too short so it looked rather absurd on me. 

And I am really excited to use my mystery tool tomorrow during my crafty time, especially now that it is not such a mystery.

Package 2
Okay so I received from Ashley G. ages ago, but my life has been so hectic. I've been super busy with work, my car broke down, and the worst being my aunt lost her battle with cancer last week and passed away. Sad  Cry  Cry
She sent a really cute bracelet (that I turned into an anklet), a elephant necklace inspired by one on my wist, and the most AMAZING elephant amigurumi I have ever seen. He's so cute. Smiley


Thanks so much Ashley G.! Feel free to post better pics if you have them!

Oh, I also wanted to post some pictures of the flower necklace I sent Ashley G. I was SUPER proud of it, and it was hard to give up. Smiley

Package 2 from SilentMynerva


Here are my belated pictures of my Firefly themed second package.  I got so excited when I opened it, I think I called almost everyone to brag about it.  Smiley

First off, a shot of everything:


Then my Jayne Flamingo!   Grin  And a Jayne hat!


My fiancee just said "Oh dear" when he saw the flamingo.  The fact that I almost took it shopping with me might have been the reason why.  I don't have either item and I collect flamingos, so it was perfect.

Then the stencil kit:


I've always been a little chicken when it comes to stenciling, but SilentMynerva provided everything for me.  And it's funny, I was just thinking I needed an exacto knife too and one came in the mail.  The kit included three already cut freezer paper stencils, a bag to put everything in and to practice with, freezer paper, knife, sponge brushes and blue paint.  She also made a lovely book explaining the whole process.  I don't have a picture of the blue paint or the second sponge brush as I was playing with them over the weekend...

And it turned into this:

Also pictured is the second wrist warmer to match the one from the first package.  Now my hands will stay warm this winter while I'm doing homework.  And this is my first stenciling project to actually go right.  I'm seeing a lot of stenciling in my future.  

It was a wonderful package and I'm excited to use my new bag!  Thanks, SilentMynerva!
