 ;D YEAH!!!  I had a wonderful package waiting on me when I got home today!



 :o There was so much stuff in this box! & shelikesstars is awesome!  she even crafted everything in the colors of my house (purple, silver, & black)! 

In this box there was a couple of other boxes & a package.  The package contained a CD with star songs...I had to laugh, because great minds think alike!  As she will soon learn, I also made a star song CD!  We even had two songs that were the same.  Too funny.

There was a package of star stickers which I want to put all over the place & a star filled with star bath confetti!  Trust- I need the relaxation of a nice bath tonight! (12 hour days stink!)

In the PURPLE chinese take out box there was a bag of what I think was the lavender chocolate stars, but infortunately the Carolina heat got to it.

The biggest box was a beautiful painted box with stars on it.  Inside were star shaped coasters (with felt on the bottom!) & a bunch of painted star magnets that I love.  GLITTER IS AWESOME!

Also there were some BEAUTIFUL notecards that she made.  I'm not sure I want to send them.  Have to be something special.

Thank you so much!  You truly made my day.  Can't wait to send yours.  As soon as I finish the last thing....

it's too bad about the stars... i even froze them for a few days before i sent them so they wouldn't melt.  oh well.  they'll taste the same   :D

If you have pictures of the stuff you sent then please go ahead and post them in the gallery, my camera is uncooperative and will probably only produce blurry pictures.
Oh behalf on Risingpheonix's uncooperative camera, here's some photos of what I sent her! 

A large green tote bag with stars all over, a pocket, and lovely tarten type lining material

Here's a picture of the other stuff I sent to her. A star shaped box, with a starry necklace incorporating some lovely blue glass vintage beads, a pair of starry dangle earrings, a shrinky star pendant on a thong, some chocolate stars (hee hee), a little handbag mirror in a case, a star flower window cling suncatcher thingy, a star book thong, a star pagemarker/paper clip, some starry stitch markers, a star hair clip, and some handmade clay star buttons. I think that was everything *lol*
Here are some close-ups!



Glad you like 'em Risingpheonix!  :D

yep that was everything.  :D
I had to work very hard not to bounce up and down when my neighbour brought it round. One day the postman is going to learn the difference between the two houses... ::)

Picture time!



Awesome-o-tastic blanket! The blanket is this awesome deep, dark blue with white chubby stars(as i call them). Super-sweet stationary! (the cards say "Reach for the moon and you'll land among the stars") Those thingys (what are they called?) to keep your toes apart when you paint 'em! ;D My foam head modeling the green granite/marble earrings (which i have already started wearing)! the one thing that didn't make it into the pic was my Rad care-a-bear ring!
Sorry its a little dark, I'm still learning to use my roomates camera.

Yay! My husband rescued my box from the office today!

First, what I found when I opened the box:



I love the bag: It's subtly pink, and perfect for carting my "small" knitting projects and knitting notions!

A close-up of the pretty fabric:



I opened the first trinket box, and look what's inside!



And in the second:



But wait! Even the pretty little box opened, to reveal these:



Thank you so much, Babiestarlite13!!

Awww I'm so glad you like everything.  It was my first time makin a tote bag, there are some lil mess ups on it but I think it turned out bettter than I thought it would!!!  I am so glad you like it!

Post by: gleep on September 16, 2006 04:35:39 AM
Babiestarlite13 is having some problems uploading the camera software onto her new computer...so here's the photos of what I sent to her!

First, everything all together:



I "stalked" a little and read she does jewelry, so some bead and jewelry supply boxes, decorated with star confetti and decoupaged.



The big star box had two nestled star boxes inside, all decoupaged with paper and ribbons and painted.




The only thing not in the original picture: A scarf with stars in the pattern! (The stars don't stand out well, but they are there.)




And the extras:



an origami crane out of star paper, glow in the dark stars, homemade star stickers, and star magnets.


I'm so glad you liked everything, Babiestarlite!!

I've been needing a new purse...



and inside was this:


I ate a candy watch immediately and then, I did this:



Which will mean that I won't be answering my powder compact anymore.

Thank you Tauna!!

By the way, the girls at work loved the phone pouch. I bragged you up a bit.

Better late than never?  Hmm...

Anyway, here's the first parcel risingphoenix sent me:

(http://www.flickr.com/photos/dyedinthewool/266841491/)

What it was doing sitting in my local sorting office, I'll never know.

Anyway, thank you risingphoenix, and despite your protests, I will send you something to even out the krafting karma!   :D
