Yup...The post office took it's sweet time delivering a package to me...but maybe it just wanted to take the scenic route traveling across the preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'country...ANYWAYS...it') has arrived!

Tacoma WA to Ottawa, ON!!

WEEE!!!



Perfect fit too!

Awesome swap everyone!

Sorry it took so long to post pictures rorriM_esoR!  I seem to not be managing my time very well lately. I blame it on lack of sleep.

I thought it might make you happy to know that my husband, room mate, and I have been been eating vegetarian for about 2 weeks now after we watched the documentary forks over knives. lol. It is definitely challenging doing all the cooking but has been really fun and way out of our routine.

Any who.. On to the awesome package that was sent to me! I didn't get a picture of the awesome purple and pink tissue paper inside because the palm jelly broke in the box. Luckily the paper soaked up most of the sticky sweet stuff and the shirt was completely untouched!

First the shirt which is reacting a little bit even in the shade. Yay for high UV index in the tropics. lol. Inside it is just black and white.


Here it is in the sun:


A picture of the cute little bags the jewelry came in taken in my neighbors yard. lol


Close up of the jewelry. I am totally in love with that bracelet. It's actually small enough to fit on my tiny wrist.


Thanks so much for a super awesome package. This shirt is perfect for hawaii and the super strong rays!

And here is what I sent to starfire!

The shirt:

I was super stoked when I found this as she said pineapple is one of her favorite fruits.

Craft:

I also made Starfire a resin pendant with a found shell from North Shore and with a little red volcanic soil in there. I thought she might like a smaller pendant so I chose this little round one. The pendants are a little cloudy because they actually got rained on while they were drying. Good ol' random Hawaii rain.


I also sent a flower hair clip that are popular here as well as a bag of sweets packaged like the one I sent to rorriM_esoR. Somehow I managed to not get a picture of them though. =)

I hope you liked everything!

Gr33nT3a, I'm so glad the bracelet fits and you like it. And I'm bummed to hear the jelly broke and you didn't get to taste it, looking back I should have bubble wrapped, but I didn't think about it at the time. Also glad to hear your eating vegetarian and if you ever have any questions or want a few recipes feel free to pm me. Again super sorry about the jelly.   Sad
