I received yesterday from Onyxnox!  I think we have a lot in common too - we even received on the same day!  Grin  I didn't have the sense to put the items together that were from the same category - oops!  So everything is in no particular order...

First up a picture of all the loot.  So fun!


My favorite item - I put it on immediately as I read her letter and browsed the goodies.  A beautiful beaded flower.  


Next up, a little Christmas knome to represent her love of knit/crochet.  


For organization, a clinique makeup bag.


Always in her purse, are reusable shopping bags.  This little bear is home to a tote bag that unzips from his back.


Then for her favorite holiday, the reindeer gel window clings, and then from her favorite store the monkey key ring ID tags (from IQLiving):


Something edible (almond bark - mmmm) and something drinkable (Tazo Sweet Wild Orange tea).  Looking forward to trying them both:


Another something for organization, this cute little pad of lists (To Do, To Buy, To Remember):


Something made of paper.  Some handmade cards with favorite pictures on the outside and favorite recipes on the inside.  Really looking forward to trying these!!


Another favorite holiday (Christmas) and also something she collects (Kitchen Gadgets) as well as something always in her purse (tissues).  I must confess; I too love kitchen gadgets!


Another item for her love of knit/crochet is this cute lavender bookmark.  I think it's adorable and I'm definitely going to be using it!  Also, a coaster that her DH cut from clear cedar, and then Onyxnox wood-burned it with one a quote that is PERFECT.  "Time is a drug.  Too much of it kills you."  I love it.


And then finally, we have something local (free publication from her area), more organization (clips), favorite craft essentials (beading needles) and finally another something always in her purse (lip balm).


Thanks so much, I'm looking forward to getting to know you even more with parcel #2!

So glad you liked everything, Onyxnox!  

I always wrap all my bridal stuff in tissue, so it's just become a habit.  And yes, I did make the packaging for the chocolate covered pretzels too.  Grin  Good eye!  I'm very glad you like the notecards too - I hope you've got some special people that you can use them for...  Personalized stationery is sometimes very hard to part with!!

I think it's funny that we both sent lip balm, we both sent something chocolately for the edible and a hot drink for the something drinkable!  I love citrus and spice scents too, but since it's spring/summer, I decided to go for the berry...  I haven't tried cranberry cider, but I do love saskatoon berry cider, so I'll bet I'd like cranberries too...

Package #1, I think is safe to say a smashing success.  I've already started crafting the first item for package #2, and I'm really looking forward to getting to know you more as we progress!  Have a wonderful weekend!

There are so many pretty things!  I really like seeing all the fun choices and items.  I'm excited to see what everyone gets next. 

I sent out my package today, hopefully it will get to my partner soon!

Karrie - I loved it all.  You shame me by how neat and well organized you were, and mine was a mish mash!  I thought it was funny that you and I sent some of the same items to each other too.

I am doing well with package 2, and 3 (which oddly enough is more done than 2!), and have found some extras I hope you like.  It was one of those things of looking around randomly and then seeing something and having the lightbulb blink on in the head, and flashing brightly.  Hope you love them.

I am going out today to get some supplies for this and some other crafts I want to make, and hopefully can get some stuff done this weekend.
