OMG I just received the best package yesterday from...

Sonjaboo!

WARNING: boatloads of photos ahead!

Group Shot:



This included: Panda puzzle, Monster Messenger Bag tute and supplies, cute Chinese character lip gloss, Care Bears gummy bears, panda beanie baby, ninja gum, stickers, yarn and crocheting book, cute stuffed panda-in-a-purse, and the cutest card ever explaining why she picked everything!

Close ups:


The stickers were so cute! They captured my style perfectly!



This gum is so awesome, wherever did you find it sonjaboo?



The cutest fun fur ever! I have been wanting to make the monster messenger bag for so long, good stalking sonjaboo!



Awesome yarn  Smiley



Finally, possibly my favorite thing in the box, Stitch n Bitch Crochet and SPARKLY crochet hooks! I have been wanting to learn how to crochet for forever, and totally almost bought this book like 2 weeks ago, but didn't have the cash at the time. Thank you so much Sonjaboo!

Sonjaboo- you did an absolutely awesome job stalking me and getting my style, and thank you so much for sending such a generous package!

VW69...I am glad you lliked everything! When my son saw your habo bag blocking, he thought I had made him a hat!
I had such a great time stalking and swapping, I think I have found my new obsession!

Everything posted has been great so far!

apandalee, I'm so glad you liked everything!  I'm so sorry I didn't make the monster bag myself-- I am still learning how to sew and my first few attempts came out like blobs!   Tongue  Anyway, I am so glad it made it to you already! 

Sparkly crochet hooks are pretty fabulous-- I found them at Jo Ann's.  Reading apandalee's posts, I thought sparkly jewel-colored crochet hooks might be right up her alley!  Smiley

Yes I love the crochet hooks! Even my non craftster friend was like "OMG they're sparkly that is so cool!" when I showed them to her  Cheesy

AWynkoop,
  The Hobo bag is amazing! It is so professionally done. My sister loved it and couldn't believe it was knitted.

Everyone's swaps are wonderful.

I'm ridiculously excited about this swap.. and participating in more!
I already have a million to look forward to (and have already been shattered by being unable to participate in the next round of the tree swap!).. all I now need is that positive feedback!! *Lleyton Hewitt style* Come on!! (For those of you who are unfamiliar with this.. Hewitt is an Aussie tennis player.. this is his trademark saying and hand gesture "come on!" http://www.abc.net.au/reslib/200501/r38815_97676.jpg )

Wow.  I received my package from my stalker, MJAdams, heretofore known as my personal, incredibly amazing, stalker.

First, the box:



That's not my cat, that's the neighbor's cat.  He comes to visit now and then.  He's visiting now.

The inside of the box, a vertiable pink explosion:



All the gifts:



Here's where I start ripping apart things wildly:



A piggy bank to save up my latte money to pay for a bike for my triathlon in August!  How did she know?  My blog and my myspace!  Good detective work.



The sweetest note about how she stalked me and thinks I'm cool!  Yeah me!  She also sent me two knitting patterns and a wooden chicken.



A cd of stalker music -- spot on.  I love music!  How did she know?  Stalker.



The cd itself, which is now in my cd player.



Knitted pink handwarmers!  With beads!  Very fancy!  I love them! !!!! (Exclamation points are fine.  It's the apostrophe that sends me around the bend) (hee hee only my stalker will get that joke  Wink)



The most incredible necklace.  It's 1,000 seed beads, in pink, rolled together.  I am going to wear it to a fancy event.  It's gorgeous and fits perfectly.



Ok, this is where my stalker is certifiable.  This is a pink designer handbag she purchased at a boutique.  It's TOTALLY GORGEOUS.  I love it so much.



Inside the bag, I found these amazing Dick and Jane buttons, perfect for an English professor!



Fabric.  Ah, my stalker knows me so well.  The larger piece is this amazing vintage fabric with embroidered flowers all over it.  It's so lovely.  And the pieces to the right are great twill with beautiful print.  I can't wait to turn them into handbags.



I've always wanted to go to class in a wig.  So here it is -- the mullet.  I nearly peed myself when I unwrapped this.



And finally, a lovely spring scarf because, as my stalker knows, I love scarves!

Well, it doesn't seem right to get all this loot without showing it off with an action photo.  So I put on as much as I could, and snapped this:




Thank you doesn't even begin to cover how I feel.  Megan was so thoughtful and so generous.  I was stunned as I unwrapped each piece.  Each gift in and of itself was perfect, and the whole lot of them leaves me speechless.

Wow.  I am so lucky.  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

Deirdre
