I'm glad you like them!  And I'm glad that everything finally made it to where it was supposed to be!  Cheesy  Monty - you said you wanted them to say either Nerd or Geek.  I couldn't decided which one I really liked so I did both!  Wink  Enjoy!


yeah! That was a nice surprise. Thank you!

Hello Guys,

Yesterday, I've got a huge package from AmandaBL. I had to go to the post office to get it (and I was nervous, because I've got a paper on Thursday, that I've got something from USA, and I can get it at 'XY' post office. I went there on Friday morning, and they said, they don't have anything. They copied my paper, asked my phone number, and said, they will let me know, if they finds it. Some hours later, I've got a call, that they found it, it's at 'YZ' post office, the postman dropped it there by mistake. I can go get it there in 1h (no way to get there with a 2yearold), or I can get it on Monday at the original place. So... you can imagine my weekend... Smiley)

So, first of all, I have to ask Amanda: How did you do this 'address paper'? (I won't drop here the whole address, but you guys can guess, what am I talking about):

The paper looks like it's watercolors, but your address and name stays white! Really cool, and I couldn't get off my eyes from it! Awesome thing, and really nice colors!

Now, you can understand, why I wanted to unpack this package at the post office, and see, what is inside? A big book with full of awesome papers, inspirational quotes and questions, and beautiful embellishments. Lets have a look:
The book itself:

The first page:

The pages:

And some examples from the pages:








And that was an additional surprise in the package: a great set of FC crayons:


I have to tell you guys, even that I saw so many handmade journals on the web, I never hold such a thing in my hands. I still don't know how do you guys doing these beautiful things. I love it! Simply love it!

Thanks a lot, Amanda!

Hey Guys,

Sorry for the late posting, I've got Vikki's (noodle-bug) package some days ago. I have got a set of hoops (A big set, I was just surprised! I already started to planning, what to embroider! Smiley

I have got some cute fabric covered buttons - with my colors:


I have exactly the same brown color of fabric already, so I just have to decide, what to sew. I really like them.
And I have got a big chocolate (Cadburry ... hmmm), I had to hide it from you-know-who Smiley He just call it "mom's chocolate" - and he is right. I will eat it during embroidering those hoops Smiley
Vikki, that package was awesome, thanks a lot! Thanks a lot for claiming me! Smiley

If they don't get there soon let me know and I can arrange another one.
