HI ALL!!!  i'm finally here to post my pictures!!  so sorry to dinkime that it took FOREVA to get these posted.  She sent an AWESOME package and i got to wear some of the items to the movie last night!!!!  YEAH!

First off are SOME of the extras she sent....'CASUE SHE SENT A BUNCH!!!
these are adorable pens in potion jars!!! they are great colors and sparkly!!! wich is awesome cause i justmoved in with granny and have nearly no supplies to write pretty letters for swaps....now i have glittery gel pens!!  Also notice the "luna esque" flower/sipper brooch!  i LOVE IT! nad a great hand written letter from hogwarts!  so so cute!

next are some CANDIES from Honeydukes!!!  OMG!  i really don't get out much and didnt realize that there were even "potter"  candies for sale...and she sent me a whole bunch!!   all enclosed ina beautiful honedukes jar!

Then we have a lovely handpainted wooden trinket box.  I can keep all my hogwarts goodies in there!!


2 charms necklaces and RADISH EARRINGS (made by luna)!  EEEKKK!!!  i love THEM!  (sory the earring pic was so blurry)

one charm necklace is a memory!  the secon was for me to use on an "ordinary day" Per Prof Slughorn

and if all that weren't enough....I got the most AWESOME cross stitch EVER!  framed in a handpainted wooden frame!!!!!  I'd hate to say this is my favorite cause i love everything...but if i really had to choose...this would be it!  I have an early macula degeneration in my left eye that prevents me from being able to do any cross stitching..so this craft is very much appreaciated when i recieve it!  ( i tried to ratate it but its not working for some reason..... maybe it will work in a few hrs?

i recieved!!!!

as stated in the main thread this package was a great surprise after a long day at work then church.    my grandmother has been  in the hospital since wed.  and our family has been mega stressed.  hopefully she will get back soon and we can all go back to normal.

tomorrow is my niece Sabian Pearl's last day of school so she got to stay up extra late with me and tear into the package with me.  which i am glad she did cause it was awesome to see her face light up with each item.

pictures are on my camera phone and i have no flash....so....i'll take some better pics tomorrow.  and this box wasw pack FULL!  these pictures do not include everything!

ALSO  my apologies in advance....i still cant figure out how to make the pictures flip the right way here...they never stay for me when i try....

first pic of the package...

recycled crayons which Sabian expclaimed..."AWESOME AUNTIE!!! I'm gonna use them for 3rd grade!"

awesome pirate purse....and i must admit that i'm not a huge pirate fan...i'm pretty much a square. ask anyone who knows me...but this puirse is so dang cute!!!  Sabian may try to jack it from me....but i'll steal it back.

cutest purse and jewelry box set ever!!  Sabian almost cried when i told her that..."this one you certainly cannot have"  stingy i know! hehe

Sabians FAVORITE!  CANDY LAND!!!  and a collectors series no less! i almost wanna hide it with her madam alexander doll to save forever!

and last pic of the night...STICKERS!!!!  and lots of them!

now...it is late..and the package does have a name on it but not a screen name...so i'll have to figure it out tomorrow.

thanks to my crafty detective!

9  fairly new to crochet.. loads of pics in Crochet: Completed Projects by texmexie on: May 22, 2009 07:13:43 PM
been teaching myself since march.

i have the double crochet beanie down....looking for a new pattern to master...but here are some of my things...(if i figure the picture thing out)

i'll start with the first hat i ever tried to crochet.  i followed the threadbanger instructions and it turned out WAY too big.  had to rip it out and do it again using my best judgment.

and a few double crochet beanies of mine. 

kiddie crochet hats  (you can see a kitty hat i made my niece in the pumpkin hat picture.)
