I'm supposed to be heading out the door for dinner but couldn't not post my bad photography of Kylie's wonderful mail!!!:o)

Note the purse.. omg it's blue!! My so favorite colour in the world!

She also sent me wonderful note cards with envelopes that say For on the front and From on the back. There is a needle catcher, note the mushroom stamp and squiggles for address! So loving it!!! Cheesy Okay I better head out the door before my fiance has a bird! *lol*  Here are the lovely pictures!   Grin

Let's hope this works! Been awhile since I posted a pic on crafster and even though it's not a great pic on my part I wanted to make sure it shows I got it. Puppies run on their own agenda. Here it is.......

**edited to correct picture upload.

I'm sorry I didn't take more than two photos of what I sent in my package but here are they arethumbnailed to save bandwith:

The purse I made with a claddaugh emblem:

The earrings and necklace:


**Wooden box painted black with a clover on the top and a the word heart in gaelic on the front.

**A satin stich embroidered wall hanging that reads:

May God grant you many years to live,
For sure He must be knowing
The earth has angels all too few
And heaven is overflowing.

**She is interested learning embroidery so I sent her a little book I found with about 100 stitches in it

**Postcards from Vancouver as she collects them

**Foam 4-leaf clover pieces spread throughout the box

Hopefully my partner can post better pics of what I did; as well as pics of the items I forgot to take pictures of when she returns from wherever life has taken her at the moment. I don't think I'm forgetting anything  Huh but I'm not sure either *lol* Cheesy

Oh my goodness!!!  I would be so jealous of all these goodies if I had not got the most awesome package EVER!!!!  I will try to post the pix tomorrow.  (*Hint*  My crazy BF was digging in there with me!)

I'm of the opinion I did *lol*  Cheesy I went to pick up the parcel as I mailed off my tax return (a treat for me doing my taxes *lol*) couldn't wait for my BF to come home so walked the 20 minute walk to the post office outlet to get it. Here's my evidence to back it up how wonderful BlondGirl is. I got so spoiled! Photoshoped to make more compact.

Canada Post Or US Post was a little rough on the box but it was pretty intact. Gibson is loving this box lots!

Group shot, and the action shot of Gibson with the Catnip Shamrock shaped toy she made for him. No wonder he loves the box to  Wink The paper underneath the card are pages of Irish blessings or sayings. (forgot to take a picture..opps!)

Wonderful bag which I am so using to carry my stuff to work and back. The girls at both jobs are going to be so jealous! (I'm leaving one on the 20th and training at the other when not at the first.

Wondeful notebook cover with pocket (she even included a pen, which is good because I am famous for loosing them otherwise) The green plastic covered thing is a greeting card (couldn't get it not to glare) with a removable pin. So cute! As well as 4 really strong magnets complete with warning of how to use them (trust me I need the warning *lol*)

The piece de la resistance..................

OMG I always wanted an apron but am a procastonator when it comes to items for myself. Complete with dorky action shot (self taken because I couldn't even wait for the BF to come home to take a pic of me wearing it) *lmao* Cheesy Blondgirl you rock!!!
