Well that isn't good  Undecided    just  checked where your package is and all it's showing is Joshua Texas post office had it on 12/21/2005  but not where it is now - and I paid extra for 2-3 days - at the lastest you should have gotten it by now.
Guess it's just the backlog of packages.

I'm betting it's just Christmas's fault...you should have your's very soon too.  I'm sure it's on its way.

Squee!  I got my package from I_Bleed_Hot_Glue today!  And it came with a bunch of late Holiday gifts, so it was like an extra little holiday!  Ignore the messy office background.



She sent two beautiful paintings with 3D clay (um, fimo?) cups on them.  One says "To drink is human, to drink coffee is divine" and has REAL coffee beans near the cup; the other one says "Tea is everything and tea is life" and there's a little paper tea-bag tag sticking out of the cup!  I adore these and my husband is hanging them in the kitchen today!

There's an awesome orange coffee bean journal with coffee-stained pages.  It looks like the brown part is duct tape, which rules.  The coffee beans look so rad!

Then there's a very cool teacup necklace.  It looks like it's made of fimo clay, and there's even a little tag sticking out of it!  It's so cute and unique.   Wink



And finally, we have four lovely teabag magnets, made out of real teabags.  They each have a quote about tea on them!  Here's what they say: "If a man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty.  -Japanese proverb"  "The spirit of the tea beverage is one of peace, comfort, and refinement.  -Arthur Gray"  "I am in no way interested in immortality, but only in the taste of tea.  -Lu Tung"  "Women are like tea bags.  They don't know how strong they are until they get into hot water.  -Eleanor Roosevelt"  (I think that last one is my favorite!) 

The smaller things were wrapped up in the same coffee-stained paper that's in the journal.  Her note was written on the same paper.  It was a nice touch, and everything in the envelope smelled like coffee!

She did such a great job on everything.  I was so thrilled when I opened up the package and saw all of the treasures inside.  Thank you so much, I_Bleed_Hot_Glue!  I love it all!

I sent my package off to Halle today, here's hoping it gets there alright. (I've never shipped stuff overseas, so not only do I have swap anxiety, I also have shipping anxiety)
