And here it is - the wonderful box of goodies I received! Prepare for a bunch of pictures (and jealousy).

The first thing I saw when I opened up the box was this -

Bob-omb tote bag! It's a perfect size, I think it will be my next project bag. Underneath I found...

A Boo hoop! I love when hoops go outside of the frame in creative ways, and his little arms were perfect. Already hanging on my hoopla wall Smiley

After Boo, I found some awesome boxes:

They are so well painted, and especially the round one has so much detail. Makes my eyes all squinty just thinking about painting those details! Even better, though, there was stuff inside the boxes...

Some sweet clay figure jewellery! My favourites are the powerup necklace and the Chain Chomp earrings - I've always loved Chain Chomp. If I move my head too much when wearing them I do feel a bit like I'm swinging wrecking balls, though... ha ha. The other necklaces include more chomps and a Bullet Bill (I think his chain might be JUST the wrong length, though, coz he kinda... well, "nestles").

There was a notebook with Yoshi and my favourite Mario outfit (raccoon suit!), which has nice recycled paper inside.

And this tin of One Up candies -

I actually had one of these tins and had filled it with beeswax perfume to send, unfortunately it was the straw that broke the camel's back (too heavy, I would have doubled my postage if I left it in!) and I left it out, but I giggled when I opened the box and saw the exact same tin in there.

And underneath it all were some extras, some lovely yarn, bright buttons, and some sweet sweet chocolates (white is my favourite). So spoiled!

Thanks so much, Kodanroxydogs, I feel very spoiled and I really hope you liked what I sent you. Smiley

I'm away for the weekend, but if Kodanroxydogs doesn't have a chance to post pics of what I sent her, I can always do that when I get home tomorrow night.

Sorry for the delay- my internet has been spotty lately, so I havent been able to get things uploaded. Luckily though I have enough service that now.. I have pics! And I can now share with you all the amazing things I received from the lovely Danielle! ( queenofmarigold) Get your pinning fingers ready!

First, I got the cutest stitch markers. I don't knit, yet, but these will come in handy when I learn. If I fail at it, they are still the perfect size to make either a necklace, earrings, or bracelet.

Next, my fiance love Luigi. So, I have a Luigi hat! The model is Jay, my little visitor from the LV Swap. Although it looks adorable on him, he won't be bringing it home with him. I think I will let my little travel alligator wear it when he gets home.

Then, I got a crochet Goomba. He is so cute, I just can't help but love him. I love how his eyes make him seem so sweet and innocent, and then you see his little teeth, and you know hes a baddie. I think he will get to sit on Brandon's Mario shelves when they get finished. Either that or he may get to come to work with me and hang out at my desk!

Isn't he amazing? And if that wasn't enough... A huge crochet Yoshi! Look at all the detail on him! I am totally amazed at people who a) can do this b) can do this and make it look this good. Brandon says we get joint custody of him.

Look at those crochet skills. Im just totally blown away how good these are, and my pictures do NOT do them justice at all.

I hate to pick favorites, because I love everything so much, but this next item slightly edged out the other items. Only because they are functional, bright, and full of Mario-goodness. I needed coasters too, so these are completely perfect. I love how vibrant the colors are, and they are super sturdy. They have a felt back too, and they are completely sealed so they are usable!!

And, we agreed to some extras.Brandon ( my fiance) loves Skyrim, and my extras were themed for him. This is a shout from Skyrim. Unfortunately, the cat knocked one of these off the counter while I was in the other room doing laundry, and the dog decided it was a chew toy and destroyed the hoop. The good news is all the beautiful stitching is completely fine and blemish free, and I have another hoop that looks the same, so I can fix it easily. I just didnt want to wait to post the picture, as I have had these items for a while. Again- the stitching on these is impeccable. It is so clean and beautiful, I could only hope to be able to stitch so nicely.

And.. in posting that, I realized how blurry the picture is. I will take a better shot and post it, but I wanted to get this posted. In addition to all those lovely items, I also received several spools of embroidery floss, in a full rainbow of colors, which will be perfect as I learn to cross stitch.

Thank you queenofmarigold for being such an amazing, understanding and simply awesome partner!

Trust me, I know! Lol as I was going through it, I kept thinking this is my favorite, now this is my favorite, now this is, Oooh, no this is! I still have to say that the coasters are my favorite of favorite things though. As awesome as the coasters look in the picture, they are better in person. They remind me of pop art squares, which I love.

I also think I've decided what I'm doing with my goomba.. He's gonna come to work with me and hang out on my desk! Hes too cute, and he's the perfect size to protect my pens, headsets, and confidential work papers!
