Seems that I am the first lucky one who received already!!   Cheesy
Not to make anyone jealous, but I got my FANTASTIC goodies from stopmoshun! She sent a bunch of great Virgin Mary / Guadalupe goodies and even some extra american stuff!  Have a look at all the pics:

An overview of all the things. She packed and wrapped everything very nice



A lantern tin with a beautiful our Lady of Guadalupe image at the front and decorated with purple stones and the candle for the tin is included, I love it!



A beautiful bag with a stencil of Our Lady of Guadalupe in gold and colorful sequin stars all around and a heart on her body, The handles are vinyl. It must have been really hard to sew them, I always have troubles sewing vinyl but she did it perfect. I love the bag, is soooo cool! and all in the very Guadalupe colors, very folk art like I like!



A mini shrine of our Lady of Guadalupe very nice decorated and with a shrinky heart, so cool!
A pin of our Lady of Guadalupe with rosary chain. I have never seen such pins with rosary included, love it.
And a wonderful resin bottlecap necklace with Mary and glitter, I am wearing it right now



A vinyl coated wrist cuff with different Holy Mary images and colors. I love how it is with different colors, it matches with many outfits  Smiley .
A glow in the dark Mary with magnetic bottom. Last night was next to my table and it really glows very cool.
A scapular with colorful images. It is the first scapular that I see with color images, I have only seen the green or brown ones, but this one with colors is very beautiful



Lots of images (sun prints and hologramm stickers, I love hologramm stuff!) and a green scapular from a Mission there in San Jose, sooo many goodies



And that is not all, stopmoshun sent me lots of extra stuff from USA! A devil ducky, finger puppet, cool tape with USA stars and images, a mexican loteria game with cards and some supercute stickers!



I am so lucky and so happy! and stopmoshun did fantastic. Thanks again stopmoshun, you rock!!!  Grin

I took pictures of my stuff and mailed the pkg yesterday afternoon  Undecided  But quarkie, when you get the pkg you don't have to take pics if you don't wanna!  Grin  I broke 2 lamps and a piano seat in the process of taking the pics.  They call me Grace.

If anyone else has any of their stuff post the pics! I'm sooo anxious to see!!

Yay! I received my package from dixie_terror today! So exciting! She sent me TWO lovely, awesome pillows with the Virgin de Guadalupe all pouf-ily appliqued on them, on furry swirly fabric! Unfortunately, my "dear" boyfriend won't allow them on the couch. He thinks they look "too mexican"...to which I replied, "uh, yeah, that's the point...and what do you mean by that, mr? I'm mexican, and ya seem to like ME around!" but I don't think I'm gonna win. LOL. So into my crafty table area they go. Sad *pout* Anyway, I love them, and thank you so much dixie!
Without further rambling... <3

YES! Finally! Someone else posted pics.
I keep checking this board about every hour on the hour.  I'm so addicted. 
I adore the pillows.  I have the same prob with my boyfriend--I'm 1/2 Mexican and he flips when I buy bright colored things... you know... pink w/reds, yellows with puke green colors... OOH my fav!  Cheesy

Anyway--great pillows!  Furry is nice.  Perhaps you can sleep with them?  I wouldn't put them on my couch. My dogs would eat them or "make sweet doobers" to them.  Eww.   Tongue

those are really pretty. you'd think the bf would be ok with those, what with the giant pic of mary in your house.

but doesn't he know that the lady of the house is in charge of decorating? and if i was being sneaky about it, i would always bring it to the couch to "use" then "accidentally" leave it there b/c i'm lazy.  Wink

i figured they'd make nice backseat/travel pillows too. glad everyone likes them, it was very hard to let them go.
goldfinch sent me a bunch of Mary goodies, a messenger bag with a painted sacred heart with iron on butterflies, an amazing necklace (unfortunately broken during shipping) inspired by mary, a great composition notebook with decoupaged mary and others, and a set of GORGEOUS glittery mary coasters that i had to threaten others well being over (some friends tried to steal 'em over the weekend). such a great swap!
