Okay everybody, I got a fantastic package from the best partner in the whole world, Whistley.
Here's the lot:

She is seriously my favorite person right now.  Em, you are awesome and amazing, just saying.  She opted to send a DIY kit and a medium wish.  She also included a Sudoku book as an added bonus because I love puzzles.

The DIY Embroidery Kit:

She included some muslin, a hoop, a pack of embroidery floss, a guide to basic stitches, and some crayons.  (Hey TroubleT, looks like I'll be able to experience the crayon tinting addiction first hand now.  Wink)  She also included two patterns from Urban Threads that were on my Wist that I somehow forgot to get in the group shots, so here they are below along with a close up of the embroidery stitching guide.

I'm going to have so much fun with this stuff!!!!

But, the absolute bestest thing ever is that she took a bunch of my favorite things (green and brown, makeup, fairies, and Daria) and combined them into an explosion of awesome.  check out this makeup bag that she made me.

As soon as I saw it I squealed.  I believe my exact words  were "Oh my god it's Daria!  Oh my god it's a Daria Fairy!!  Oh my god it's a Daria Fairy!!!!"  You guys, seriously, I love Daria so much and this is totally awesome.  (Can you tell I'm just a wee bit excited?)

Here is a closer look at the embroidery.

This is so perfect for me.  I love it!
THANK YOU so much!  I could not have a better partner.   Grin

Will do private swaps for keys, cogs, and steampunk goodness.

such gorgeous packages! I had never heard of the crayon tinting thing before this thread.
Whistley, your UP collection is rather impressive!

such beautiful packages.
Also, Naja, prayer flags are such a wonderful idea for a wedding!
I have some hanging around the house, but never thought about using them for a celebration deal. so simple and sweet. Smiley

I received my package 2 from Helena Puck last Friday, but I went camping this weekend and I wasn't able to post pictures and then I had trouble with my camera, but I have images now!  Smiley

She sent a great package! I love everything!

First some Hello Kitty goodies! A super cute embroidered hoop, a key fob that it will be super useful and some Jelly Bellies candies (my favorite candy).

Then she sent an adorable owl patch (I love owls), and a cat's eye earrings and ring. I love it! The ring fits perfectly.

Then there's a stamp carving kit! I've been wanting to make my own stamps for a while, and now I can!

Thank you so much Helena Puck, I love everything! I'm sending package 2 tomorrow, I just need to finish my letter.

Warning: Pinterest can be addictive...

Great pictures! So glad you got your camera working and that you like everything. I don't know if I said this in the directions but the eraser is for stamp carving practice if you don't want to immediately start on the rubber.
