I recieved my package from mishmish today!! I am obsessed with everything she gave me:
A little cookbook that has about 300 pages and AMAZING recipes! I'm always on the lookout for a good cookbook, and this one has tons of great recipes I can't wait to try:


A journal to write down my veg recipes. I love the design!

A beautiful decoupaged box that matches the journal, and goes with my room:

All my goodies!

Thank you so much for a great swap Smiley

I'm sorry I haven't posted sooner. I got back from my trip to Japan and moved into a new apt nearby, AND got a new kitten who was rescued by my bfs brother, not to mention work and my internship.
So I finally got down to posting, although I have been using the things my swap partner, the amazingly creative adadancer13 made for me. A big HUGE THANK YOU to her! Now I get to show you all how much she spoiled me.
This is how it arrived:

My goodies all wrapped up. Adadancer13 is creative even with her wrapping!

I used to be a ballet dancer (turned down a professional contract for college, I miss it sometimes), as did my swap crafter, which is such a coincidence. She decorated a pointe shoe with all my favorite musicals! I modeled it:

Look at the details!

I took the pics before I moved, but I have this hanging in my new apt:
Sooo cool

Everything was numbered and explained:

I love jewelry, and this has "5, 6, 7, 8" on it! It's used in dance all the time and the first line to A Chorus Line, one of my faves!

My camera stinks

This is SO creative and awesome: interchangable designs for a headband!

I look naked, but I had a tube top on, lol. The covers slip onto the headband:

A lucky necklace!
I wore this on my plane to and from Tokyo

She sent me fun craft goodies and odds and ends, which is LOVE!

Stickers!! Including a bunch for animal rights because I'm a vegetarian!

And it only gets more amazing: This looks like official merchendise, but it's totally unique and personalized. Rent is my favorite musical!

I look gross, but I had to try this on the minute I got it.

My awkwardly modeling my awesome new goodies. I wore this shirt on the flight from Tokyo to New York, and GUESS WHO WAS ON MY FLIGHT? Karmine Alers, an actress who played Mimi in Rent on Bway! She said she loved the shirt and asked where I got it when I recognised her!

Everything all together:

Thank you SO MUCH adadancer13! I love everything!!

13  My apartment in New York City! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by newyorkdoll on: May 21, 2007 10:16:21 PM
 I decorated it myself on a small budget and a lot of creativity and bargian hunting!
Here is a before and after picture of my living room.

and after

Note the empty picture frames. Just moved in and didn't get to that yet, hehe. My foyer...

 The "bar" is actually two 12 dollars shelves from Ikea, and the mirrors were 4 for 10 dollars. I sanded and finished the serving cart myself!
(I scrapped the red throw rug, this is when we first moved in and things were still a mess and not finished.)

I love this apt. It's in a gorgeous pre-WWII building.
What do you think?

PS: After lurking for awhile, this is my first post!
