I received from aisy last week, but I'm just getting around to taking pictures. Sorry aisy!

She sent me a ton of ultra ADORABLE things!







She made eye shadow and lip balm just for me! It's soo pretty and pigmented! And the lip balm smells like cotton candy and bubblegum! Yummm. (:
She also made this awesome Halloween-y bug ring and hair pin set that I'm planning to wear on my CRUISE that I'll be on Halloween! Cheesy And some cute earrings, I've already worn the raspberry ones to class Cheesy
I would've taken pictures of the positives from the cute stamps she made, but I'm currently lacking an inkpad.


And I hope you don't mind, aisy, but I'm also posting pictures of what I made you!


I'm so proud of the wristlet I made, I haven't sewed anything like this in a long time.

I received from juliel85!!


She made me an amazing Teesha Moore bag. I've been lusting over these bags for ages!
It's huge and perfect for carrying around my lunch and art class stuff.



She made me a pencil case, and sent me some stationary!

Thank you so much, Julie. I already got a comment at work about it!

Everything looks great! I love the little box with lip balms Roll Eyes

It took me so much time (I'm sorry!) but everything's finally ready and I'm going to take it to the post office tomorrow after school (on Friday it's luckily before 4 p.m. so it might be in England on Tuesday)

Glad you like it, lvl0rg4n! I had a lot of fun making it. And I absolutely LOVE what you sent me...I have the pics on my computer, but I can't put them on craftster until my husband shows me how to make the files smaller (we just got a new computer and I'm a little lost). But I should be able to get them up tomorrow!

That mug is hilarious! Love it!

Julieboolie I'm so jealous! I wish I was going on a cruise! Where are you going on it?

I am going to Cayman Islands, Honduras, Mexico and Belize! I am so excited! But unfortunately this week is going to be so stressful because I have to get two weeks of school work and work-work done all in one week! Sad Boo.

I received my package from Dra yesterday and have the awesome pictures to show off. 

Here is the overall haul.  A very nice note, planner, notebook, a package of (delicious) tea, stickers, decorations and a sticker book!



Check out the completely adorable little pencil bag....

It came with best kind of money, edible, and two pens.

Thanks so much, Dra!!

I've just received a package from Super-Ted_Cullen. So here's what I got:


A notebook inspired by one in my wists. But there are bacteries instead of a girl with harp Smiley


A lunch box with the greatest British ever Smiley Unfortunately it's not washable because the picture is sticky when wet. But I can use it for something else. Or maybe I could fix it by covering it with something.


This is how it looks from side- there is human evolution all around!



100 carts for learning English slang so I can learn something new. Almost all the words are new for me ('lame' is one of few exceptions).



And the extras. The bookmark is great- I totally love this kind of bookmarks but they're not sold here. People around me always tend to play with them when I'm reading Grin And this one is really pretty, I like sea themed things ^^

Thank you, Rebecca!

To follow on from my Partner; I received my package at the beginning of last week but the porters didn't tell me and then I was too busy to post pics over the weekend. I have tried to rotate the images, but it seems like some have worked and some haven't. Sad If you have any better pics Anofeles, please post them! Anyway, without any further ado;

Here's a group shot to start it off:



The first things I pulled from the box were these two utterly awesome notebooks! I am a huge fan of Gothic literature (and a closet Goth Wink ) so these were awesome. I particularly liked the opening door on the red one.





Then was this really cool 'secret' book with a Bow inside;





I have wanted one of these for sooooooo long, it's ridiculous. Wink

Next up was this little dragon (named Gwyrdd Dreig or Grr for short) to keep me company at Uni;



Along with a little plant pot inspired by her wings, which I am hoping to grow a marshmallow plant in;



Anofeles also sent me a really cool Wind charm thing which is now hanging on my window and looking rather Celtic-y Wink :



She also sent me loads of Yummy sweets from the Czech republic, a pencil case, a red biro and a rubber, all of which are now being used!

Thank you so much Anofeles, and Julieboolie for organizing!! This has been a great swap. Cheesy


Rebecca.
