Hi kids! I'm so happy with my items from Moilulu I can't stand it!  Kiss I received these items last week, and I've been trying to post them ever since, but I've been crazy busy at work, then Craftster was down yesterday (which gave me fits, btw), yadda yadda yadda.... anyway, here they are!

First, the sweater (Tubey from knitty.com):

(sorry, y'all, about my bathroom -- I just had to cover my face, too.  I was not looking good that day.  Wink

I. love. this. sweater. Thanks so much, Moilulu! The little tag you added, saying you made it, is cute, too!

But wait! There's more! I actually squealed when I opened the box, and anyone who knows me will tell you I'm not usually that kind of girl, but I was so happy to see that, in addition to the lovely sweater, Moilulu was kind enough to send me knit socks as well! I'm starting to see what all the fuss is about!

Has anyone else noticed that it's hard to photograph yourself wearing socks without making your calves look huge?  Cheesy

and one more, during my happy feet dance:

Thank you, Moilulu, and thanks to everyone for the compliments on the wrap I sent her!

Wow! Runswithscissors is a hookin' virtuoso! (erm.... hope that didn't sound too naughty).
  This just cracked me up. Thanks for the laugh, too!

I tried to post this the other day and thought it had gone through, but I guess not...

Here's my Sept. postcard:

It says, "I hate the way my body looks -- fat-- so I eat even more to feel better."

My Nov. postcard:

It says, "I love my dictionaries most of all my books." 

Thanks for sharing your secrets!

I received a card for July from my swap angel:

There's a lot of text in this one, and it's a bit disjointed, but some of the larger things are:

I felt ugly the instant I saw her. I didn't say hello because I was scared she wouldn't remember me (...and I was ugly). As opposite as we are, I really wish we had become friends. I miss hanging out with her (however unstable she may be). Everyone forgets me unless I'm with my friends. I don't stand out on my own.

On the back of this card, the message says, "You may not understand this secret but it feels good to get this one out. I actually cried as I made this one -- something I didn't do with any of my other secrets. I miss what I used to be and could have been. I'm so boring now and I hate it."

Thank you, swap angel, for sharing this powerful secret.

I received my August postcard!


It says, "My husband keeps buying me kittens so I won't talk about a baby."
