Here are the photos of the truly awesome items that I received from barbolot!!  Let me let you, when I opened my package, I was ecstatic!!!

First is a gym bag made with Amy Butler fabric (my first anything made with amy butler fabric!!  Grin)

it is zippered and has pockets on the inside.  There's also loop and key ring on the inside for keys.  (The next picture will show what was attached to the key ring  Smiley)

Here's the keychain.  It is meant to inspire me to "GO" and exercise.  And it honestly has been working  Smiley

One of my goals was to drink more water.  So my partner purchased for me a water bottle with one of those cool ice cores in the center and she made the prettiest cozy for it.

bottle + cozy

my other goal to work on is packing healthy lunches.  I typically run around between school and work, so I end up eating a lot of junk food and takeout.  barbolot made this spectacular lunch bag (of her own design!!), so I cannot help but WANT to bring lunch to work.  The bag is reversible and she even included some reusable plastic food containers  Smiley.

Also, she threw in some chocolate!!  But weight watchers chocolate so I don't need to feel guilty

Thank you so much for everything barbolot!!!!  I could not have asked for a better partner  Cheesy

Here are the pictures of my lovely items from jMisSister who super spoiled me!!!

First is the group shot which contains: ruffled apron (inspired by my wist), Dick and Jane bag, hand-painted flower pot, lots of office supplies, decorated journal, bracelet, and magnets.

Here are all the stationery goodies!!  I have an unhealthy addiction to office supplies  Smiley

Here's the Dick and Jane bag.  The width is nice and long, I think it might use it as a WIP bag.  I completely love the fabric!

Here's a closeup of the fabric used on the ruffled apron.  It has children's verses on it.

This is a journal that jMisSister decorated for me.  This semester one of my professors has requested that we keep a "teaching journal," so this is absolutely perfect!

These are some vintage magnets.  I think my favorite is the Cabbage Patch one!

One of my favorite children's books is Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin.  I have no idea how she made this, but it's so cute.  I showed it to one of my friends (also studying to be a teacher, and she was really jealous)

So I saved my favorite item for last.  It's this beautiful painted flowerpot.  It's nice and bright and just so adorable.

Thank you so much jMisSister!!!!  Everything is absolutely wonderful  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I just received my package today from mcook72677!

First is the scrapbook she sent me.  I only took a picture of the cover, but she used some really pretty papers on the inside.

My partner is from Michigan, so she sent me postcards, a local magazine, and this amazing rosemary mist spray.  As soon as I opened the box, I could smell it!!!

Lastly, for the favorites I received some Dove candy bars (very excited to take a bite of one...), a novel by Dean Koonz (I'm a bookworm), and some tasty lip balm.

Thanks mcook72677!!!  I can wait to start working on the next package  Cheesy

Here are the pics of the lovely items that i received from RazorBladeSmile.

Group shot:

There's my lovely apron.  I have been eyeing this fabric for sooooo long, so I was really happy when I opened it.  To the right there are also some extra goodies!  I also received a chocolate chip cookie dough lip balm in the shape of an ice cream container, but it's in my desk at work right now.

Here are close-ups of the ornaments:

I think my favorite ornament is the little gingerbread house, it's just so detailed.

Thanks again RazorBladeSmile!!!!!!

Im posting pictures of my package from epic1313!!!!  I took these pictures right after I received my package (before the goodies were consumed  Cheesy), I've just been under the weather and haven't posted them yet.

So here they are...

Group shot of a very adorable snowman tin, homemade pumpkin bread, cookie cutters, and a knitted cloth.

Extra items:

It's hard to see from the picture, but the imprint of a reindeer is knitted into the cloth.  How cool is that?!

Thanks epic1313!!!!
