My package from Leslieshappyheart is HERE! Everything is so perfect and ME!  Tongue



Hello Kitty embroidered journal cover! I wish I thought of adding a ribbon and flower charm for a bookmark!
Cherry blossom Warmachine card holder. (my secret geek hobby I play with my DH)
Dark chocolate! We were low on chocolate and will be perfect for my microwave smore addiction.
Extra fabric from both fabrics. Going to make a dice bag out of the cherry blossom to match my card holder.
Red ribbon from the plastic bag of the small goodies. This Monday is Red Ribbon week at our school and going to reuse it for my classroom.

The journal, I love the bow! Purrfect for my name!  Cheesy


Card holder open and loaded!


Cannot wait to show off my card holder and journal today!

Thanks, everyone; I'm glad that Sillybowtie is happy with it!  My daughter (in college) and I both like Hello Kitty, and I had just bought the fabric to make something for her, so it worked out well.

I just received from FeliciaSlayDCRG! Let me tell you, this is one of the most thoughtful packages I have ever received. Aaaaand, she completely spoiled me! Grin Take a look:

First off, the most amazing journal cover ever! I love the Beatles, and this is one of my favorite songs! The embroidery of the sun is done in metallic thread too:


A close up of the amazingly stitched lyrics:


Upon closer inspection, two spots to hold pens! Oh, and she even sent the journal with the cover!:


Ohh boy did I ever need one of these. The armrest of the couch will be so happy not to get pins and needles stuck into it anymore haha:


Oooooh what is this? Why, it is an impeccably sewn, pleated, zipper pouch! With some Beatles and retro-ish fabric:


And what did I find inside? Yes, MORE goodies! A seam ripper (haha! She saw that I posted I didnt have one! This is the thoughtfulness I am talking about!) and some pressed pennies! Woohoo-I collect these!!:


Thats not all folks. I am super excited about this-patterns for bags! Now that my sewing machine and I are completely in love, she'll love to help me make these up!:


And last, but certainly not least, some yummy gummy worms! Cant wait to break into these later Cheesy:


This package made my day for sure! Nikki-Thank you SO much for everything! I adore it all and cant wait to start using everything! But first, off to finish your package! I really have to step up my game now!  Wink
