Yesterday, I got home from surfing at the beach to find a lovely purple package sitting on my kitchen table. Cheesy It was my swap package from jrain, but you probably realised that already. I love everything that's inside, and I'm already putting most of it to good use! So, thank you!  Cheesy Cheesy

Anywho, here's pictures of what jrain sent to me:

Inside my package was a little owl, from jrain's own pattern, (he's so cute!), a set of 5 cupcake notecards, which are fantastic, a flowery/glittery bookmark ( Grin) & a lovely soft scarf in great colours, which is currently being modelled by my giant Eeyore until it's cold enough to sport outside. Cheesy

Here's some close-up shots:

Thanks again, jrain! I love it all.

22  3rd x-stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by yarnorama on: June 20, 2009 12:44:04 PM
I finished the bird at the middle of this x-stitch ages ago, and had it lying around doing nothing for a long time ... when suddenly I was inspired by my new icon. C&C's welcome.  Cheesy

I got my package this morning, but I'm feeling incredibly sick. I might be AFK for a few days, as I've got a really weak immune system, but I'll try my best, sincere apologies.

The whole shabang.

I LOL'd. Unfortunately, the paper it was wrapped in got stuck to some of the eyes. Sad

Bag close-up. [:


There was: A tote bag, coasters, a photie frame, cute notecards, animal crackers and Asian candy.

Thanks so much lil_starry1

26  4th project - getting better, maybe? in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by yarnorama on: August 07, 2008 02:49:00 PM

He loves the camera.  Tongue

Full shot:

I bought some yummy thick yarn, when I went to the beach, and I used it to make my 4th project. I think I'm improving, slowly.

I made the pattern up myself, so yeah.

Comments?  Cheesy

Here are some pictures of the beautiful pin cushions that Mandi sent to me. I only got pictures up now, because I've been away. Sorry Mandi. ]:
Anyway, on with the show.

First, the most amazing Hello Kitty cushion! It's so adorable.

Then, there was a cupcake pin cushion straight from my Wist!

With beautifully embroidered detailing:

Extras were also included!

 Sharpies, crayons, tiny notelets, a cupcake magnet and more!

How spoiled am I?
Thanks so much Mandi!
You were a very entertaining partner.  Tongue

I didn't know this, and everything looks fantastic!

Today I received the most amazing package ever from Danni. It was truly fantastic. Now I shall show thee pictures.

I opened the box to find THIS:

Isn't it amazing?! It's so beautiful.

Then something rattled inside, it was these!:

Burts Bees Honely Lip balm, Miffy pens, A Hello Kitty tin, An OWL! <3, Owl Earrings (I'm wearing) they're beautiful, there were also gemini-y charms, for me to use and grogeous mini notecards.

As if that wasn't enough, I GOT ART:


It's so beautiful, my photo's really don't do it justice.
Thank you, so much Danni. Because you went above and beyond for me, I've compiled another package that I'm going to send to you before I go on "vacation".

Thank You!  Cheesy

My Mum and Dad woke me up at 7.30 saying "You have a package!" and I was like "Huh? Where am I?" and I was like "Kay... I'll open it in a minute" and then they both burst in with "OPEN IT NOW, OPEN IT NOW" sometimes I wonder who the parent is.

In other news ... MY PACKAGE IS HERE! - in a HUGE box. It's the biggest package I've ever had.


I opened the box to see ... GREEN! ...

I opened some more ...



At home with my vintage floral sheets :] (I'm an odd little cookie) ...

I'd have been thrilled with just the cushion, seriously.

& then I find ...

The coolest mirror, ever! even My Mum was like "That's amazing! Can I have it?!" Er... no.

Wait. There's more.

A CROCHETED BAG. Which is SO cute. I'm taking this on holiday/vacation with me. It's so pretty. (My Mum wanted to steal this, too.)



NOW ... I completely adore vintage/retro/thrifted things (and in Kookaloo's (gorgeous) notecard she said that she wouldn't be offended if I didn't like -it- and wanted to pass it on ... for the record, I think I may have squealed when I saw it. But that's just between you and me.)

A VINTAGE STUFFED TOY CRAFT BOOK (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
I've found a new collecting hobby, for sure.

It's so amazing


Inside picture pages:

AND, there's something else!
A holo..homo..hola..graphic journal! Kookaloo informed me that this was her first ever time at making a journal, and that it is "far from perfect" for shame, Kookaloo, I think it's fantastic. It even has green pages! I'm going to use it this summer, as I'm going on lots of outings and holidays, to put my postcards/photos/ticket stubs in there, like a little memory book. I was looking for one, but couldn't find one anywhere, and now I have one!

Thank You, Thank You Kookaloo_Starr, you are an amazing partner/crafter  Grin
