I got a great package from Monica. 

Monica sent me 2 grateful dead vinyl artwork pieces

Then she sent me a rainbow button tree.  I love this thing so much.  Thank you!!!!!!!

As if that wasnt enough, she sent me a container of bubble dough too. 
I was using my small little camera that cannot take night time photos, so I apologize for my photo quality.  I tried to photograph the bubble dough and that was a pathetic attempt with this particular camera. 

Thank you so much Monica!!!!!!

changing a tire = calling AAA!

Wow Lindy, that's a lot of inchies! 

Changing a tire = call husband or dad.  If all else fails call AAA too.  Being raised by dad who does all your mechanic work and then a husband who does it too, can definately backfire.  I now have no idea how to do a single thing.   Huh

I just caught up on lots of posts here.

Mimi and Lindy I hope you find a nice house.

I claim babalina58 for PaperLess Towels

Hi, my name is Erin. I am a stay at home grad student mom in the Seattle, WA area. I love to sew and I mainly sew PaperLess Towels or unpaper towels (feel free to add it to your list if you want them and I make them with and without snaps).  I am gluten and dairy free. Please do not send me any food with gluten or dairy in it. I love to cook and bake. I love the outdoors, nature, gardening and crafting. I pretend to knit sometimes and dabble with different crafts. I like nature inspired items. I don't like plastic stuff.
My favorite colors are green, blue, and red. Purple is okay, but please do not send me anything that pink is the central color, or pastels, or gold. I dont like flashy things. I love chartruese, I like dark lime green, eggplant, dark turquoise, any of those colors with brown is great. I love wall art and I love trees and rainbows together (or seperate is fine too)
My favorite scents are blueberry, food scents, lemongrass and pink sugar. I do not like patchoulli, musky scents, sandlewood,
I do not need do dads.

Crafted items:

I just painted my sewing room and I am using these two fabrics to accent it with  Picnic Parade Mingle in yellow and orange diamonds. I would love you forever if you made me something with one or both of those fabrics for my sewing room. wall art or anything you think of.  Doesnt have to be made of the fabric-just match the main fabric print.  I can also send you some of the fabric if you want to make something with it.

Monica, we used to put flowers on door steps, ring the bell, and run.  We didnt usually have many cut flowers in our yard so we would steal them from the other yards and then place them on door steps.  Or we could get some flowers from the trees that produce them and no one cared if you cut them down. 
I loved May Day and ringing the door bells and leaving flowers.  It's such a neat tradition for kids.  (minus the stealing flowers to do it)  Hey, at least we gave them back to the person we stole from right.

I haven't had AC upstairs in 3 days and it is getting fixed now.  It has been 88-90 and miserable up there!!  And to make things even worse - my BRAND NEW sewing machine had a part break off on it yesterday too!  Ugh, when it rains, it pours!

Way tooo hot to not have AC down there Mimi !!

What part broke on your new machine ? Sad I broke the upper knife on my serger about a month after I got it, irritates the crap outta me when something new breaks like that. I at least hope it's an affordable and easily replaced part.

It hasn't been too hot recently thank goodness!

It was the lever to raise/lower the presser foot!  I called today and they are sending me a new machine Smiley

That is super cool they are sending a new machine.  Would be even better if they let you keep them both. 
Either way that is great.

I just got back from Mimi's and I had a couple of packages waiting for me.

From guacamolly I got snack bags, hair clips, and she surprised me with a shirt too.  Thank you and everything is wonderful!

From missmoppet I got two hoops.  Thank you.  They will go on my new wall when I get that up someday soon.

Funny, about heartsy. 

No worries about the album.  I don't mind waiting until it comes.
I had to giggle as if I need more of a reason to stalk Etsy Wink
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my towels btw!
I am so glad you like your towels.  If you need more keep it on your list Smiley or let me know. 

Heartsy is bad for me too.

What would the value requirement be?  I know some hoops take longer than others.  Would it be a medium swap value?  Or just a one hoop per claim and value is not specified?
