I got my package a couple of days ago!  I've had to help my boyfriend pack up and move his stuff out of his apartment though.  He's got basic soon so he doesn't want to pay for the rent while he's not there.  He's going to move to a different complex when he's gotten back.  He's storing his stuff at my place for now so it's a bit of a mess right now!   Cheesy  Anyway, that's why I haven't put the pictures up yet, but Pirate Kisses and I were partners.  We both have boyfriends in the army right now and wanted to make stuff for each other while our boyfriends were away.  She did such an amazing job! 

Here's everything together:

She made me a beautiful purse:

This is probably my favorite item.

In this picture underneath she made me a BDU pincushion for my pins and sewing needles, a red neck pillow, and she hand stitched a water bottle carrier for me out of hemp for long walks:

She also bought me a gorgeous leather journal and wrote "Army Girl" on the inside:

The journal is pretty awesome.  I really like that these are all items I can use.  The neck pillow is comfortable!  Also, everyone's stuff turned out so wonderfully.  Everyone here is so talented!

I got The Bees Knees package awhile ago.  I was waiting for her to get my package before I opened it though.  (Again, stupid FedEx. Roll Eyes)  I would have put it up last week, but I was so swamped with college and midterms before Spring Break.  Anyway, she sent me a lot of cool stuff!  It's so funny because we both did wood burning!

Here's what she sent:

This is Sleeping Beauty's castle.

This is it from the side.

Here's some charms for necklaces.  It's Ariel and Ursula. I tried to take close up pictures, but most of them came out sort of blurry.

Here's Ursula.

This is Ariel.

This is a lovely Cinderella print she made.  It came out so wonderfully.

And just to be nice she threw in some top hat pictures and this bee print.

Thank you so much for being my partner, the bees knees!  You rock.

I got my package from SidekickFancy today!  It was perfect!  It had so much.

She made me a bag with the poem "Somebody Has To" on one side and stars on the other side:

and magnets:

She made one with my name and one that I can decorate myself.  It came in this tin:

And this record bowl:

She also made me a snow globe of "Falling Up":

This lightswitch cover:

And these shrinky dink earrings and keychain:

And she said she couldn't help making me this hat:

I took a million pictures so more pictures of everything can be  found here.

Thank you so much, SidekickFancy.  You were a wonderful partner!
