Mara,

I love everything you sent me!!! I used to go to homestarrunner.com all the time!!! AH! The veggies are awesome, glitter is always fun, and I'd love to learn how to embroider! How did you know I like those kind of suckers? The color green of the bag is perfect - not to bright or light or dark - just perfect!!! Great crafting!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

~Sara~

P.S. ~ Sorry, I don't have a digital camera. Mara, did you happen to take any photos before you sent the parcel? Thanks!

poorcelain...

yeah i do like to dabble in lots of crafts, but i mostly sew, crochet and make jewellery and cards.  Wink

I find crafting helps me relax as i have a stressful life at times. I work parttime as a midwife/nurse. I have a disabled  son and that takes up a lot of time and a smaller son too. and a big daughter too. but love them all heaps. i dont go out that much these days  Roll Eyes , so crafting is fun for me. and especially if someone loves what i made, it makes me feel happy. but yeah i have to fit in housework, wouldnt we all rather be crafting hahaha.

Cyndi, you out did yourself with that package..! The clutch/wristlet is so cute..! and that necklace is gorgeous....

p0orcelain, you are so lucky..! Be careful with the Vegimite though..! non aussies have a tendancy to use too much... so if you dont like it first, try it again with a little bit less..!

Theres some amazing stuff in this gallery...!!!

oh and p0orcelain, you will have to tell us how you like the vegimite..!!!

I received my blue/green package today from Miss Violaceous.

She sent me some yarn she dyed herself (now I have to decide what to make with it), some vintage buttons, a fabric/button pin (made by her) and a keychain (also made by her) with 2 sharpies attached to it (never seen them this small before).

THANKS for everything!
