I got a letter and goodies from whats_her_name!  It was so worth the wait.  And now I'm worried about my send off.  I looked up a story today that said they went ahead with rolling strikes through major cities in Canada last night.  Wonder how long a package will take now.....  Anyone have any expereince with that?  Well, on to happier matters for the moment.  Look -->

She did a little stalking and saw how much I love owls,.... and made the cutest notecards.  All variations of this mod owl design.  And each of the envelopes had owls too.  Cheesy

And then she got an idea to make a matching notebook.  Every page is lined and has its own mod owl.  She even sent more owl notecards of a different design.  The best part....  I tend to bit wordy too, so I loved that she added a page of owl stationery to each card so that you have a little more to write on.  At least, that is how I would be using it.  I can't start a card and not end up using more paper behind it.  I feel so sploilt!

Thank you so much Karrie.  It was all perfect.

So glad you liked everything.  It was SO much fin to make!  I've already made 3 more sets of those cards because people have liked them so much.

As far as the strikes go, Canada Post in my area won't be on strike for awhile yet, so here's hopin' it all gets resolved BEFORE it comes to that!!!

Love the bracelents and the fan bookmarks!
Also love the owls! so cute!

Wait... That notebook says "Kim's Notes."  That means I'm in a swap with another Kim from Canada?!  What are the odds?

Oh gosh, the penguins!  I didn't even see that at first.  Is that peyote stitch, Zzdia?

I had to look up the peyote stitch. Lol. No, it's just a regular knotted friendship bracelet done with embroidery thread. Friendship-bracelets.net is full of patterns for them.

Those owls are adorable! I love the variety of colors on them.

Wow, I had no idea you could do such things with knots!  I have only seen stripes and other simple patterns in friendship bracelets.  I will have to check that link out.  Coincidentally, I have more experience with beadweaving than with knotting of any kind!

There are tons of patterns and quite a number of tutorials there. It's a bit more confusing than the usual stripes and diamonds, but the finished bracelets end up pretty cute. Cheesy

There's some amazing things in this gallery! I love the penguin bracelet and am amazed at how you made it. Those owl cards/notebook/etc...is adorable! I'm curious about the Canadian strike also because I would have figured my partner would have recieved by now.  Undecided
