Received a SUPER package 3 from LanaC! My personal favorite is now proudly displayed in my office- to remind me to take a breather when things gets too overwhelming or stressful.

Pictures will be forth coming- as soon as I get home on Wednesday!

I received parcel #2 from SilentMyNerva a few days ago, and let me just say, she spoilt me rotten.

I received a gorgeous black, white and pink shrug.

She also made me this cool bag with my online handle and last name printed.




Contained within was a lovely notepad, crochet hooks, a hand made journal with crochet instructions and examples and a skein of lovely soft wool. She also sent me a bag of sour Jelly Belly jelly beans but I forgot to get a pic of those hehe.



Thanks for such a thoughtful package, I love it and can't wait for parcel 3 Cheesy

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

YAY... I'm glad you liked everything!!! And I hope the shrug fit properly. I tested it on myself so I can totally post pics of it... I can't believe it took this long for you to get. The Package 3 should be there soon! Smiley
I used the freezer paper stenciling for the bag. Cheesy

It fits perfectly and I do have pics of myself in it - I wore it nearly all day for my birthday and yesterday and today hehe. It's so warm!

Package 2 from FinRaziel

I received a great package from FinRaziel last week. We have both had busy summers and had to send late (I am actually still working on my package 2 which I hope to have out soon! eek!) but I love her package and it totally made my day.


First we have my cat May modeling an adorable felted purse. I've just learned to felt, so I'm really impressed. Also, the little flowers are so cute! I love little purses and this will be very useful for me. Smiley


Next we have 5 things to add to my stash...and clearly this is way more than 5 things. There are 6 skeins of Knit Picks Shine Sport, 3 skeins of 100% cashmere(!) yarn, and a skein of a silk/cotton blend. All good yarns for summer knitting! Also, I swear that I did not put my cat in these pictures. As soon as I took my camera out, she would walk into the shot and I couldn't really make her leave.  Roll Eyes

It was a lovely, well thought out package, thank you so much!

Package 3

I received package three from Southern Flower a few days ago, and have been remiss in posting pictures.  (We homeschool, and this is our first week of school, so things have been a bit crazy.)  Here is my awesome package:

Oh.  All images are clickable thumbnails.

The package was topped with this beautiful fabric:


And contained a complete needle-felting kit:


I'm so excited, because this is one of those things I've wanted to learn to do, but probably wouldn't have ever gotten around to getting the supplies for myself.  But my daughter and I will probably both experiment with this very soon.

And utilizing her best craft, my partner made me these lovely earrings.  (Hopefully you can see them.  Earrings are hard to photograph!)
 packaged beautifully in this cute little bag:

The package also contained decorative tissues (so beautiful!), more of some bag clips she sent last time that work great and are in use constantly, and these "magic animals" for my girls.
   

The magic animals grow crystals to look like this: (Pardon the crappy picture.  I tried and tried, but this was the best I could get it to focus.)


Thank you so much, Southern Flower, for a great swap!  I enjoyed choosing items for you, and hope I did as good a job matching them to your tastes as you did mine!

I received PACKAGE 3 from LanaC last week Friday but had not had the time to take pictures- Finally able to do it today!!!!!!!


I am in love with this shadowbox! A scene from my favorite movie After Ever in where the group of gypsies stole their horse and things and told her to take whatever she can carry on her back and she picked up the prince! Thanks so so much. This is sitting in my office and will be a gentle reminder for me to take a breather when work is stressful or overwhelming Smiley


Close up!


Two duck tape roses! and chocolates yeah!


Fabric and battling for my sewing stash.

Thank you! I am in love with everything!

Package #3

I received package #3 from craftycakelady.  Awesome stuff!
I love tea, so she sent me a tea themed package.


There is a can of chai which I love!  Tea Time magazine which I have not seen before.  Some new teas and a hand painted and decorated tea box.


This is the same tea box, but with the lid open.  There is also a piece of beautiful orange batik!  And a pack of note pads and pen. 

Last, but certainly not least...

A box of homemade goodies!!  These are so yummy!!! 

Thank you craftycakelady!  I have been enjoying my tea and your wonderful treats! Smiley

I've been such a slacker! I received both of my Round 3 packages and should have posted before now!

Withough further delay!

Package 3 from Rosyposie


this is an amazing sweater!!! I'll post an "action" pic too


pardon the "self portrait" - and it doesn't do it justice at all! (I hate to have pictures of me)


Rosy included this awesome "brain soap" for me! *Squeel!* it's in my guest bath soap dish now!
and this lovely pin to wear with the sweater or whatever!


Thank you sooooo much Rosyposie! I love the sweater (and the rest too!) so much that I *almost* wish it was cool enough to wear it! (ok, not really! lol! but I will enjoy wearing it when it is cool!!!)
