I received two great packages this week.

I received from Missmoppet earlier but had to wait till this weekend to be able to go home and get it:
Here is the whole lot! The pillow cases are just to die for! and the monster is absolutely adorable!

The pillow cases the black one is cute but he looks kinda scared so i think he will always be with the red one cause he looks brave and courageous

I also received from Pixieval some really awesome supplies. Theres enough bulky yarn to make cap sleeve sweater im Kinda very excited about it.

My favorite fabric. I'[m a big BIG horse person so i'm super excited about the red fabric

 Shocked those shoes are amazing!!! *wisted*

SO i received two great packages this week!

first from Lindy who sent me an awesome whimsy jar!!
an adorable butterfly from her daughter (which is hanging right over my crafting area!!)

look at all the BEADS!!

a fortune telling fish! i used to have one of these a long time ago and lost it so im so happy to have a new one! Cheesy (for those of you who don't know what this is - its a thin sheet of plastic in the shape of a fish that moves around with the temperature of your hand, depending on how it moves is how you tell the fortune!)

AND a harry potter book necklace!!

and today i received a fantastic package from the very talented rlynn Cheesy she claimed for some funky jewelry:

ADORABLE bird earrings:

the notecard:

a flippin sweet ring with a map of my town!!! (i just moved to this dinky town and didn't even know it WAS on a map!)

AND a gorgeous charm-style necklace inspired by my wist!

I have SERIOUSLY been spoiled this week! Thank you both SO much!! I love everything Cheesy

i received the sweetest little outfit from MommyTheMaid and a baggie full of costume jewelry to repurpose!

okay so i DID take action shots but apparently promptly deleted them afterward.   Roll Eyes 

so here's the top.

and the bottoms.

and here's the only action shot i didn't delete.  ah well, you can see the cute little bird and the fabric she used in this shot a bit.

and here's the baggie of jewelry.  there are some great pieces in here.  can't wait to disassemble and reassemble.  Smiley  Thanks for the great goodies, MommyTheMaid!!

and since i'm already on here, i thought i'd post what i sent to MommyTheMaid.

a tie applique tee for her son

a mom tattoo tee for her son (this was partially hand-painted as my stencil failed me...heh)

and a jewelry piece from her wist

i received two packages from MommyTheMaid today!  She claimed me for a game for Aria for one package and legwarmers and felt food for another.

First up is this fantastic numbers game!  Which couldn't have come at a better time!  Aria insists that 1,2,7,8,9,10 is how you count to 10.  No matter how much I try to tell her that 3,4,5,6 exist...she refuses to acknowledge them.  I'm hoping this fantastic game helps me out a bit here.  Its washable (pertinent for toddlers!) and there are so many ways for Aria to play with it.  Smiley  By the way Aria was helping me with the picture by stealing some of the pieces and throwing them around. Heh.

Next we have these lovely felt dumplings!  There are actually 5 of the folded ones but Aria insisted on playing with 2 of them! Smiley

And last we have these lovely legwarmers!  MommyTheMaid said she got them from a past OWS but her daughter has outgrown them so she passed them onto us!  We love them!  They are so pretty!  And I really like the idea that they get a life beyond one child.

when i took the first pair off to model the second, Aria demanded I put the first pair on her arms!

Thank you!  We love our goodies!

Also, I know I already posted ~Glenda's beautiful wall art but I wanted to post a pic of it up on the wall.  This one almost didn't make it to its intended recipient's room.  It was hanging out in my craft room, but I cleaned the other day and decided it should go up on Aria's wall. The colors match her room perfectly!

and a close-up in natural light on her wall...the last photo i took didn't do it justice.  it was in my cave of a living room at night.

thanks again, ~Glenda!

I recieved two packages.  The first from MissMoppet who made me a shirt straight from my wists.  Well actually I like this version of it better than the one on my wist!

I am wearing it today since I am not at work!

She also included some fabric to add use for I Spy quilts I want to make my kids and some crochet hooks since I am learning to crochet!

I also received from LuckDragon who made me a stationary organizer.  I love this fabric and can't wait to get it all filled up with my random note cards

she also included two sandwich bags for my kids.  They are going to have the coolest lunch bags next year!

and some super cute notecards that are already in their organizer

Thanks so much guys!  I loved both packages and they came at the perfect time.

I recieved from padfoot today, and it was AWESOME!  I look absolutly terrible today (I'm having a graduation party on Saturday so today is clean the house day.  Here I am, cleaning the house) so to resemble me is my manaquin head that I named "Machine."   She's sporting my usual hat and sunglasses to represent me.

I got claimed for a cute choker and a wisty suprise.  Here's how it went.

Here is the cute choker.  It's purple, it's crocheted, and it's exactly what I've been looking for.

This is Part I of my wisty surprise.  I have something like this on my wist, and I love padfoot's interperatation.  It's soooo cute!  Go buttons!

Part II of my wisty surprise and I LOVE it!  My mom didn't get it at first.  I said Mom, it's suppose to look like you got your throat slit.  She of course thought I was strange and walked away.  YES!

And here's everything together.  I got cool stickers, too.  I <3 stickers!

So padfoot, I publicly thank you for the awesome package.  Thank you!

The soaps look yummy!  That robot is so adorable and the pincushions are so cute!

I sent MommyTheMaid some felt farm pieces.  She received and hasn't posted pics yet so....

And I recieved a fabulous package from Lucinda8179
She made me three reversible fabric cuffs.  Work on one side party on the other!

And load of six inch (I think) fabric squares to use for I Spy blankets for my kids!  I hope I can collect enough to make them for Christmas since I can't cut even squares to save my life Smiley

There is a great variety for both boys and girls! 
I loved my package thank you so much!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I haven't posted pics yet.  It is suspected that I have walking pneumonia...yay.  Roll Eyes

I somehow lost the pics of the felt farm Lindy sent us Sad but thank you for posting some! I will get some more.  The kids love singing Old Mc Donald while we play Cheesy

Here is the clothespin apron and furoshiki DeannaLynn06 sent me Cheesy I am still figuring out how to tie it he he.  And the apron is RIDICULOUSLY useful.  It has cut my hanging laundry time by at least half.

and a cute little flower clip that my daughter claimed:

Kitshckween sent me two really adorable knit cupcakes (done all swirly with icord) and a really pretty flower for my hair.

(I had a bandana in my hair that day so that's why it looks weird)

I got two great packages today!   Smiley

I received from Styupe! She claimed me for something for Aria!

There was this very lovely shawl/poncho for Aria.  Sorry I couldn't get an action shot.  Aria doesn't quite understand the whole shawl thing quite yet.  BUT we will practice and the shawl actually has plenty of room to grow (it fits now but she will definitely get some use out of it for the next 2-4 years as I don't see her getting so tall and wide not to fit into it)

she also sent an adorable jellyfish!  Aria flipped over this.  She shouted, "Jellyfishie!" and immediately grabbed him and danced him around.  She kissed him goodnight and stuck him in a special cavern (a toy of hers placed upside down) for the night.  I'm sure she will wake him up in the morning. All day, if she dropped him somewhere, she kept asking, "where's my jellyfishie?"  he was a huge hit. oh and all that stuff on her face is face crayons...she spent the morning at the children's museum.

And then there was my package from lapoli!  she claimed me for knitted washcloths. here are the lovely BIG washcloths.  They are so nice!  I love them!

But she didn't just send me washcloths even though that would have been plenty!  She threw in gobs and gobs of fabric!  Swoon! Heh. I needed to take 2 photos...they wouldn't all fit into one!

I'm very excited to see what projects I can come up with.  I adore the striped fabric and the farm animal feedbag one, lapoli!  Thank you so much!http://shop.craftster.org/

I received 2 packages Saturday and 1 today, so here they are:

I received this package from kitschkween. There is a bunch of freezer paper and yarn. I love the yarn. I live in a very small town so it is hard to get supplies. They don't sell any of these yarns locally. My mind automatically went to work on the items I can make.

Next up is the package from lindyv321. Everything is just too perfect. There are tons of different types of yarns to try. I'm so excited as I've never worked with any of these kinds before. She knew I wanted to try stencils, so she sent freezer paper and some stencils. The last item is a knifty knitter. I couldn't be more excited. I wanted to try them out without having to pay a bunch of money for yet another craft I may have no talent for. I'm so excited to get started.

The last package is from phoenixfiredesigns. She saw in my wist that I wanted to do crackle painting, so she sent me all the supplies I'll need to get started. She even sent me the same colors from the tutorial I had in my wist.

All the packages I received are so wonderful. I couldn't be more excited.

Since I'm posting anyways, here is the package I sent to frosty772. I don't think she has posted a pic yet, so I'll save her some time Smiley

I sent her a Spiderman blanket (from her wist) and a scarf. I started the blanket using different colors. It didn't look right, so I started over with new colors. Instead of throwing the first one away, I finished the webbing and I included it as a mini blanket. Here is the mini:

My camera is still acting funky, but these are the best I can do with it right now! sorry about picture quality!

TONS of crafting/sewing/crochet/knitting magazines!

yarn, buttons, 2 different kinds of homemade laundry soap, lots of postage stamps for my postage stamp collection

A notebook that she filled with lots of great ATC tips(dd, and the first d does not stand for darling today! got ahold of it and took out a few pages this morning, but it was fixable!)

Lots and lots of paper goodness for my new paper stash

And my absolute favorite part of the package! My first ATCs! I want to fill a journal of ATCs from all the awesome people I've met on craftster, same as how I'm doing for the craftster afghan. I love these!

Thank you so much MTM!!!

Well i recieved an amazing package from pad foot the other day and just have to gush about it. I got it early in the morning as i was on my way out to breakfast so these things had but 10 minutes of being in my possession before they were put to work! Which is why i dont have an all together shot XD

when i opened the package the first thing i saw was:

It's been on my wist for a very long time and it is the most amazing thing ever. I named him Pi as he remined me of the symbol!

Then i got into the sandwich bags they are amazign for chips and sandwiches and all that great stuff!


AMAZING Package Padfoot Thank You So Much!
