Here is everything from CrochetAdikt:

We decided to do magic yarn balls so not all of my stuff has been exposed so far.  What I did get though is:  cool stationary, some of it is from her home town!, postcards from Michigan and from the Gerald Ford museum, sudoku, earrings, magnets, a cool eraser puzzle, a lovely box, coffee, hazelnut drink mix (in the nestlee container), a cd of pics, what i think are craisens, her favorite coffee mug w/the favorite tea, her favorite book, and a candle of both of our favorite sent lilac.  I feel so spoiled and i REALLY hope she likes her stuff as she unwinds her yarn ball.  I've already started unwinding mine Grin  And some closeups:

Beautiful local stationary.

Earrings.  Rachael said they remind her of perfume bottles, and she's right. I love them.  Sorry for the blur

The awesome coffee cup:

And missing from the big picture is her favorite coffee mate.  Raspberry chocolate.  I had it this am and it's sooo good!

ok just to clarify a little bit...b/c i'm bad and didn't write a letter explaining what everything was  Undecided so the stationery that coryjo said was from my hometown is actually from a place called beulah, michigan. its where my b/f's parents live and its stationery thats made from an old school printing press by gwen frostic. (she's dead now, but someone else took over the company) you might have heard of her, her stationery is renowned all over the world and it was also featured in the martha stewart magazine and the only store is the little tiny one in beulah.
the craisins are actually dried cherries straight from traverse city mich. the cherry capital. delish!
and lets see if i can find a better pic of the earrings...i know i got one around here somewhere...

there we go. hopefully soon i can unwrap my yarn ball. i'm trying to finish some other crochet first and then thats my next project. Smiley

4  lotsa thread crochet (pic heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by CrochetAdikt on: March 10, 2008 01:37:55 PM
so i bought a ball of thread for the bargain swap i was in, to make a headband my partner had wisted and needless to say i had no idea how much i could make w/ the thread. i just kept going and going and still had a few small balls left over. unfortunately i don't have a pic of the headband but i do have one of everything else. also sorry about the distorted pics, i don't know whats goin on w/ that.

ok here's an action shot of the headband.

the pattern came from yelley's blog Smiley thanx yelley!

8  my first stencilled project woohoo! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by CrochetAdikt on: February 26, 2008 08:56:34 PM
i stencilled this for the magic yarn ball swap. she said she liked guitars so i found this on stencilery.com although, i think i found out later, this is related to flight of the conchords? i think i saw it on a shirt w/ the title underneath...anyways i still think its cool. oh and canvas is hard to stencil on! w/ the texture of it the paint tends to like to bleed. so there's little bits here and there but i think for the first time i did ok and she liked it and thats what matters!

thanx for takin a peek! Smiley
