I received from LadybugsAndBumblebees and I absolutely adore it!!  I told her liked colorful and cute and she did exactly that!!!   One side is fabric and the other side is knitted. 

Take a look at the beading around the sides which I LOOVE!! I know this took a lot of time and work.  THank you so much Ladybugs!!!!

The other side.  Sorry about the position. I have a new computer and haven't figured out the photo editor yet!

  Two bags of coffee roasted in Alaska, a dark roast and a medium roast, a caramel syrup (which I can't wait to try.. I've never had coffee syrup before!!), a purple knitted coffee cozy, and a beautiful Alaska cup!!

Look how beautiful this cup is!! I love it.  It is so cheerful and pretty... exactly what a coffee cup should be Smiley

Then, she made two fabric hoops based on my pinterest. They are going to be hung in my craft room! I love the colors and fabric she chose!! She also included the ingredients for Cranberry Hootycreeks (such a cute name!) and the instructions for baking the cookies.  I can't wait to make them!!  THANK YOU SO MUCH TANKRGRL.  I LOVE MY PACKAGE!!!!

I received from Pupper!! I love the package she sent!!

Pupper was good to me Smiley!  With the tote, she sent a cupcake pot holder, the cutest teapot wall hanging, yarn, tags, flower clips and charms, and cute little mice!

Isn't this packing tape adorable?!!

Here is everything together:

Here is a closeup of my tote and the cupcake pot holder.  The pictures do not do the bag justice!! It is way cute!!

I love this teapot hanger!! I will definitely be hanging this in my new kitchen (I'm moving this month)!

Thank you so much Pupper!! This whole package was very "me" and I loved it!

8  I FINALLY TRIED THESE!! in Dessert by jl409 on: March 17, 2011 07:51:44 PM
I know this is nothing new but I was so excited to FINALLY try these!! I thought it was fitting to try them on St Patty's Day with all the Leprachauns and rainbows!  I think what I'm mostly excited about is giving them to my elementary students tomorrow!! They will think this is super cool. So here's how mine turned out....

I am sorry I didn't get a chance to post pictures yesterday of my awesome package from Onyxnox!! Anyways, I LOOOOOOOOOVE everything so much!!! I can't tell you how good this package smelled when I opened it! Here are the pics!

She included nutty cinnamon coffee and a holiday blend (I can't get over how good they smell!), Cream of Avalon tea, the cutest tea wallet, gift cards, and cinnamon honey sticks. And see the beautiful pashmina she incuded?!

I can't tell you how much I LOOOOOVE the hot/cold pack that you see in this picture! It can be worn around the waist and is filled with lavendar flowers and oil.  Lavendar is my absolute favourite!!! I go to bed wearing a lavendar eye pillow after drinking a hot cup of tea so thank you so much!! She also included a cup and cozy. So cute!

Here is a fleece cowl that is adorable! I tried to take an action shot of myself but they didn't turn out well. I couldn't get a good picture of the front of the cowl. I'll try to get my boyfriend to take a better action shot tomorrow! Smiley

I had to take a closeup pic of the tea wallet because it is just too cute! I love the ladybug button it!

Thank you so much Onyxnox!  You really spoiled me!

10  Chewy Almond Raspberry Sandwich Cookies in Dessert by jl409 on: December 28, 2010 11:11:04 AM
I got this recipe from the magazine Bon Appetit and they were delicious! The reviews online http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2010/12/chewy_almond_raspberry_sandwich_cookies  were not so great but they turned out SOOO good for me!!

Sorry for the cell phone pics.. I did not have my camera with me. The pics do not give the colors of the cookie justice!!

If you decide to make them, here are a couple of things I discovered 1)they were very sweet the day I made them but for some odd reason, they weren't so sweet on the 2nd day and they were perfect!   2) the recipe suggests making the cookies 2 1/2 inches long- i think because of their richness, they should be bite size so I would suggest making them about 1 inch long  3)because the dough is very soft, i did not roll them into the almonds- after squeezing the dough onto the pan with almonds, i just placed almonds on top instead of rolling the dough.  I then used a spatula to transfer the dough from the almond pan to the baking pan. YUMMMMY YUMMO!!
