oh YAY!  I am always worried that the post office will lose a package!

I know you have been crazy busy as well, so the important thing is that you got your birthday goodies!

ok, so I was taking down my Halloween decor (yes, I keep it up a looooong time) Smiley and low and behold....behind my rather large pumpkin...A BOX!  Apparently, it was delivered a few days ago, and my postwoman tucked it behind my pumpkin- I could not see it!  Sorry, alwaysinmyroom!!  So here are the pix of the WONDERFUL bday box!!!  It truly is a great package!

2 hats from my list:
(I love both, but REALLY love the purple wool one)

a fantastic little monster plushie in my fav color


and some wonderful supplies for my collages, etc. 

Also she sent a CD from her husbands band- haven't had the chance to listen yet, but I'm very excited to!, a great little book thong, and a newspaper from her area- 1972!! So many great things- thank you soooo much, AIMR!!

I am so glad you found the mystery box hiding! Cheesy

I loved the variegated purple hat and then panicked because you said you loved red! Cheesy  Remember, what you don't wear, please donate or give to someone in need!

aww---I always hate giving away plushies but I do not want to be one of those old women that is discovered with 100 plushies in her home Grin

I was hoping you could use some of the bits for your lovely collages...including the yellowed newspaper from 1972!  

Happy Birthday to a special woman!!  It was fun crafting for you (and destashing at the same time! Wink )

So apparently my front patio is like the Twilight Zone for packages....I received a great box from Kartiana a bit ago, and it took forever to find it, because my delivery person set it behind a bush....I need to get a PO Box....
Sorry it took a bit to post this, K, but you'll be glad to know I've already used a few of the papers on some projects!  Cheesy
Here is the great amount of supplies she sent me!

I absolutely LOOOOOVE the foreign book pages- where do you find all of them???  Also the patterned paper strips, and the sheet music


Thank you so much, what a wonderful stash!!! (Secretly, I love organizing all the stuff as much as I love using them in projects....my OCD talking there!)

One more wonderful bday package- this time from Lullababy!
Lots of fantastic papers- love the oriental ones!  Also some great lace, sugar skull fabric, felt, some wood blocks, glitter (which unfortunately opened so my craft room looks like it was visited by a fairy!  Cheesy 

And also a great assortment of buttons (which I am addicted to- I put buttons on everything!!!)


Thank you so much for the great bday package, L!! I love it!
