Lookie what I got from astronogirl!!!!  Prepare yourselves to revel in crafty glory:



She sent a stencilled (?) pirated music t-shirt (tee hee!) a felted wrist cuff, a pin made from a vintage scarf, some sequin ribbon, and  a hot pink coin purse full of seeds for my garden!

How did she manage to fit all this into one measly envelope?  Because she's amazing, that's how.


Close up of the wrist cuff.  Check out  the sparkly beads!


Back of the t-shirt, and the pin.

Thank you so much, astronogirl!  I love it all!

YAAAAAY!!!!  I just sent a bunch of PMs inquiring as to my package!  It was pretty thick so the post office man said it might get sent back to me.  Phew!  I'm glad you liked everything!

Wooo! I just received from vegbee! I was slumming around all day nursing my cold, when it occurred to me to go check the mail. And here was a lovely surprise from vegbee, nestled in a half-size manilla envelope if you can beleive it!

She sent me a blue pouch- kind of like a travel wallet or money belt- to keep things in when I'm walking/hiking or just don't want to load up my pockets. It's adjustable and zips shut. Perfect! This will be great when I'm out and want to carry my keys/money without dragging a bag around with me!

One suggestion I had made for a "flat sewn item" was something I could keep a tube of lipbalm in as I always lose them, so she made the red pocket keychain. Isn't this design the greatest? I already tried it out with a tube and it fits perfectly! What an amazing design! The pic doesn't do it justice but it is red with a gold print, sooo pretty.

The necklaces are great and fit perfectly- the blue one is bunched up on the scanner but it has lots of little dangly bits on it, so cool.  And the badges gave me the giggles... they say:
"Have you HUGGED your Postal Clerk today?"
"Have you THROTTLED your Postal Clerk today?"
and
"Go Postal!"

thanks so much vegbee, everything is super!  Kiss I love it!   Grin

EDIT: Just wanted to say sorry for the sucky pics but I have no camera- have to pile everything on my long-suffering scanner.   Roll Eyes

I know! And it was in a small envelope too - about the size of a large greeting card, maybe 8.5x6" or thereabouts.

I should wear the "Have you Hugged your Postal Clerk today?" button when I go post vegbee's stuff at the PO... to make sure I get a good rate and all.   Cheesy
