I received my awesome birthday present from witchybelle4u2! My beautiful tree of life necklace (I love it!) and Harry Potter friendship bracelets (they were the first thing I pulled out of the package, and I got so excited because I recognized the colors) Thank you SO much!!!

I meant to post these ages ago! (Sharing a computer with the DH is a pain!)

So here's the first package I receieved from TroubleT:



I LOVE this cowl and I'm totally living in it right now!

And here's the second package from craftaddiction:



This is totally Dylan's favourite blanket! I have an action shot somewhere that I'll post when I find it! Smiley

And check out all the Kool-Aide! Cheesy I'm so excited!

Also... I cannot say how excited I was when I realized the LipSmackers was Ice Cream Cake, not Vanilla! I didn't even know they made that flavour! :O

Received!!!

I'm so sorry for the delay, folks ... these illnesses are kickin' my tushie, I'm still not back at work full time and I fell asleep in the middle of eating a sandwich the other evening. Woke up to find the cat stealing the turkey out from between the bread - she had a look like "if YOU aren't going to bother eating it, I WILL!" LOL

So! I got two lovely packages for my birthday!!!

First off, I got a lovely package from Whysteria - she sent me some great little fingerless mitts and a cat toy for my floofy Phoebe!

Well, I have a photo of the mitts ... but the cat toy was SNATCHED from me the instant I opened the envelope, and Phoebe took it with her to bed and it's in the blankets now! I'll grab a photo tonight - she LURVS her new toy, and I woke up one morning recently to find her sitting on my chest, dangling it in front of my face - "play with me!". The toy was all drooly and quite the startling sight at 5am. LOL

So! My lovely soft comfy gray mitts - just perfect for me! And the lovely card she sent.





I am going to enjoy wearing these when it gets coooooold in my drafty little cabin this winter!!  Thank you SO MUCH, I keep petting the mitts as they are so nice and soft. And Phoebe has deemed your toy worthy of nesting with in the blankets, so that's a big two kitty-thumbs up!  Grin Grin Grin  THANK YOU!!!!!!


Then I got a box from ChevelleZombie, who really spoiled me!

Group shot:


She knitted me a scarf (will see that in another photo) and some nifty little coasters/mugrugs for me for at work (I eat lunch at my desk, I'm surrounded by biological labs ... the desk is the safest place!), and made a traveling tea kit for me!!!


The lovely mug she sent - oh I love the dots, so Mod! It's now my official afternoon tea mug. And it's sitting on the scarf she made, which is already around my neck. My office has been dubbed "The North Pole", it gets so freezing cold in here - so the scarf is a welcome addition!

Now it's Tea Time!


Contents:

Teas, sweeteners, lemon, mug rugs ... it's wonderful!!

THANK YOU!  I love my birthday package. (You'll notice only one packet of candy is pictured - the rest were hoovered up by me in a fever-induced sugar craving episode! YUM!!!)



Bless you both, and TroubleT, for your patience with me as I struggle back to feeling human again ... I've put myself on a swap moratorium for quite a few months, until I'm back to 100% health and caught back up at work. You two really made my birthday month - I was having quite the pity party for myself, I still haven't seen my parents and had my birthday cake!!! So your packages were VERY welcomed. You made me have an actual birthday!   Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss
