Well, I am planning my days to fit to the mailmen's schedule. Someone is here around 10:30 a.m, the other one arrives at 14:30 p.m. (smaller packages in the morning, bigger ones in p.m.). So, if I have to go to buy something, or we are going to the playground, we are home at these time. Smiley

Well... the second package has made it! :-)
I don't know what was in the first package what alwaysinmyroom has sent me first, but I am so happy to get this package. (beware: this post will be image heavy!)
look at the box first (with a hand of a 3years old):

... and when he asked me, what he can get, I said: the box! ...


and then... let's see, what was inside:
- this is how it looks together.
Some (I mean: A LOT of) waxed cotton threads:

- with a closer look of colors:

2 amazing magazines from 1970s:


(inside pic, what can I make):

Beads and buttons (awesome tiny ones... never saw buttons like these):

Washi tapes (these were  in their original packaging, but that was the first what my son started to get out...):

Measurement tape:

Vinyl - to make that Skittles zipper pouch:

And a huge amount of ricracs:

... and such a lovely letter, what I won't show ... Smiley

so... I think, we can say that officially: alwaysinmyroom is crazy! Smiley
I looove everything what I've got, and I already made some stuffs... wanna have a sneak peak? Here you go:



Thanks a lot again, Linda!

gosh--those bracelets are really nice!  Funny how the stuff I was interested in making back in the the 1970's is popular once again! Grin

However, the new cords are way brighter and nicer!

Phew!!!  Glad at least one package made it...

Yea, I think, we didn't had these waxed cords... we had a lot of plant holders, what my mom made in the 80s, and I so hated them (as I had to pull out a chair and stand on that to give water to those flowers... :-)
