Ok ladies....I can't take or post photos, but I can write a dang good description of what I received, and then, hopefully, Bobomom will post photos so everyone can drool!  Grin 

Here goes: 

-The BEST fabric notebook cover!  It is deep purple fabric, with lavender and lime green and magenta owls, hearts, and trees on it!  I have to write 'anectdotals' every day of the school year for my students, so this notebook and cover will see daily use in it come September!  (And I had my girls write a note in it for me already.  Wink)

-A Day of the Dead themed bag!  White handles, lime green lining!  I can always use another bag, and I didn't have a DOTD themed one till now!  Cheesy

-The cutest little two handled basket/bag in varying shades of muted blue, with sparkles!  Inside is two skeins of the SOFTEST yarn I have ever felt!  One is in varigated earth tones, the other in black/white/grey.  I may just leave them in the skein and rub them against my cheek every so often!  They are really that soft!

-A baby sea turtle on blue background themed fabric travel tissue holder!  Sooooo cute!  And since I had surgery on my nose in January, my nose ALWAYS runs, I am always in need of tissues.  Perfect!

-TWO DOTD themed dishtowels!  The fabric topped kind that you can attach to the handle of your oven.  One red, one turquoise; both big!  Cheesy

-I saved the best for last...Bobomom is definitely a 'master of all trades'!  She carved FOUR stamps for me!  One says 'Ohana', and the next three are big/medium/small adorable sea turtles!  They have special meaning for me, and she put a lot of work into these...so detailed!  This was the first (and probably last!) time that I hoped a jewelry box didn't hold jewelry!  Grin Roll Eyes (she sent the stamps in a jewelry box)

Everything was wrapped in holiday themed paper, and she sent a candy cane card with it too!

THANK YOU SO MUCH BOBOMOM!  I LOVE IT ALL!

Here are the items I made for Miss Barbara! I'm so glad she liked it all!  They are in the order she commented on them.
















It was the first time I made those kind of towels.  I'm thinking I might make more for Christmas gifts!

Thank you so much for posting photos.  My girls had a playdate today, and I showed the other mom with me the items you made me...she was SO impressed (and jealous, I think!)!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's the cool thing about those baskets - you can get a whole new look by turning it inside out!

What a great little elf; he looks like the elf on the shelf guy. I love the little drumming soldier too, absolutely precious!
