I got some lollys and marble magnets from princessblueberry today =D  Even though I shouldn't have, I chomped down my cinnamon lolly already *L*  It was just right, not too hot and not too wimpy!  The marble magnets are really cute too, there are a couple with words "believe" and "dream" on them, and two with orange (my favorite color) flowers... sorta looks like origami paper patters to them, and a lion face (which is probably my favorite).  Thanks =D

I did get my pouch from Writer78 and posted on the other thread instead of here... oops!  It was the cute middle one in the bottom row from the picture, and had the turtle charm in it!

I sent today. I'm sooooo sorry to everyone because it was a day late - I'd like to explain. My printer at home pooped out Wed night after I got home. I got new toner on my way home Thur night and it still didn't work. All the items in my "Relax Packs" (Javastains clever rhyming term for my relaxation packages) need instructions so I was in a bind. I tried to hand write everything but it would have been impossible. Javastain was good enough to let me have an extra day due to this. I was able to quickly type up everything yesterday at work and put everything on last night. I don't normally cut things so close but I put in 71 hours at work this week! The last two weeks I put in about 60 each. I hope everyone understands. That said I went for broke with the send outs - instead of bath salts OR Milk Baths everyone got a few of both, 6 hand blended teas, a purchased stick of organic honey(for the tea, or for a sugar high) and a hot/cold pack.

I would also like to add that I would have jumped at the crochet tampons if I weren't the proud owner of a diva cup!

So here is everything I've gotten so far...

An awesomely soft fuzzy scarf from penguino(it's soooooo soft, I need to know what kind of yarn it is) -

sorry about the crap on the mirror - my room mate "cleaned the bathroom" last night. That apparently means "swept the floor and poured bowl cleaner in the toilet".

Also a coin purse from hertrigger - vegas themed

I love Nevada as an ancient Burning Man participant from the 90's. The interior of the pouch is of poker chips, dice and martini glasses.

And from princessblueberry - some nifty marble magnets and two lolli pops

sounds to me like real life reared up and bit you... but your warning us not staying quiet... and with that sort of hours.. yeek...

I'm impressed you got so much done... but you need to sleep too!    Grin

*edited to add*

I just checked the mailbox (evil rain... Sad )  I have magnets and lollipops.. and a seriously pouting other half... so I'm scampering to hide the sugar yums...

Thanks tons princessblueberry, the magnets are on the fridge, high enough that the cat can't get them (I had one escape the bag and kitty was Interested and not pleased I took away her "toy")

Thanks so much for your concern, Mieka

I've been very good about sleeping - I have no choice!

Luckily I'm not stressing - It's only temporary, maybe a few months. I can't help but admire the irony that I'm making relax packs during all this! I need one myself. That said I'm super calm. I'd venture a guess that it might be all the relaxing crafts I've made.


Edited to add - I hope some get green monks tea cups and my teas - that would be so cool.

Do I have that right? Green Monk has the tea cups? I can't believe javastain can pull this swap together with all the craziness!

if nothing else the overtime pay will be nice for later when you have *time* again...

good lord you have been busy.... portioning must have taken almost as much time as mixing goodies together did.  And if I'm measuring the bag size right those are big enough for two bath tub fulls *each* being relatively generous on the goodies (thinking the teeny excuses most apartments have for bath tubs)

we're about to go off and "support the arts" and see a co worker of Lance's band play.  Maybe this time the music will be to one of our tastes.  Last time (different co worker) it was okay if you tuned out the screaming lyrics (sad part is when the singer *sang* rather than *screamed* he had a good voice... Roll Eyes )

I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the cards and will be putting them to good use. I apologize if anyone on my list doesn't have pierced ears but if not you can always pass on the love and give them to a happy home.

today was a shocker.. all the mail in the box was to me (even the bills  Smiley )

my loots for the day:
Javastrains hemp dishcloth (just in time too, now I don't have to go buy one.. but I don't think I'll use it on dishes, it's to soft.  I'll use it for scrubbing some of my salt dye stuff to get all the salt off.. )
devilninnies cards (they look like an impressionistic version of cherry trees in bloom, now I just need an occasion...)
and Mubs crochet jewelry bracelet. (and it's short enough! Not fifty miles long, and it's red and blue and go with my blue interview suit...)

yeah.. I'm bouncing over my goodies.. thanks guys!
