I received from MeganCrafts today! I got home after an arduous 8-hour drive home from Canada to find a lurvly package waiting for me--I am SO happy right now!  Megan did some great stalking and found out my favorite color, hobbies, and more--I'm impressed!  Grin

So much stuff!!

Card #1: The cutest hand-drawn bike ever!

Card #2 and STICKERS!

After pulling this gem out of the box I ran to the bathroom and stuck it on my head...

Yes I was wearing grody clothes b/c I had been in the car forEVER...please excuse my yuckiness!

Yay for purple and bicycles!!!

B-Day pin...I pinned this on myself too and paraded around Smiley

Cassette tape wallet straight from my Wists! It used to be a Kenny G Christmas tape Tongue

All together! I also got some wonderful tea: Green tea with mint, Green tea with Pomegranate, Salat Green tea, and two varieties of hand-mixed: Green tea with mango and Japanese pan-fried Green tea!

I am so sorry that I missed so much! But i finally have time posting what the wonderful TroubleT and Larissa-Rasputin has sent me for my birthday!
First off TroubleT sent me a fantastic stenciled dragon t-shirt that I freaking LOVE!!

I wear it whenever I can! My friends are already sick of it but that just makes me love this shirt even more!
It's on the left side close to where the heart is so i like to pretend its a dragon after my own heart. Yes im cheesy!
I love the design!!!
And she also sent a bunch of freezer paper great for stenciling plus she was even nice enough to write that she has a great stenciling tutorial!

Hooray for stencils!!
And she also sent me this nice b-day card that came with instructions on how to prolong the life of my shirt which i have been following because i love it way too much!

Oh and she also wrapped the shirt for me like a present unfortunately with my excitement i forgot to take a pic but thank you so much in wrapping it!! I loved ripping it open to see the wonderful surprise that was inside!!

Now on to Larissa-Rasputin's awesome gifts!!
First off the opening of the box!

Then the awesome sculpy clay she sent me!!! I LOVE her so much for her sending me this plus she was thoughful for sending it white! She gave me all the colors in one go!

Now on to my main present which i think is so cool!

I Have no idea how she knew but the feathers go perfectly with my hair becuase my hair is brown with orange streaks on it! Its so adorable!! And underneath the hat was a letter! It surprised me and i never would have noticed if it wasnt for my clumsiness.
And cause i like it so much here is another shot with my teddy wearing it!

This made my family smile!
And yes i would love to know how you did the top hat!!

Anyway those were my gifts and im so grateful that i had wonderful people sending me great gifts and having fun in this swap. though I am sorry I took so long responding. I Loved everything!

Received an awesome package from nostephot

First up is this little cutie!

Isn't she wonderful?  Straight off my wists.  I <3 this!

But wait, there's more!
She also sent me a ton of embroidery floss!  I've been wanting to get into embroidery and no place close to me carries any.  I have a ton of colors to choose from!

But wait!  There's more!
I also received some printed out instructions for various stitches (VERY helpful) and a "stitch lesson"  The numbers printed on the lines, really help me figure out where the needle should go.

But wait!  There's more!
She also sent me some patterns, man I cannot WAIT to try these out!  I also got a heat transfer pencil (which I somehow did not photograph)  How cool is that?!  I didn't even know such a thing existed!

Thanks again for the wonderful birthday present! Cheesy

I got home from the store earlier today and found not one, but two packages waiting for me.

One was the supplies I need to make amylouwho93's present.
The other was my package from her.

She sent me this awesome hand-drawn card.

And my R2 hoop!!  He's so awesome.  I'm moving starting next week sometime and I'm so excited to start my hoopla wall.

She also sent me tea.  The bf is really excited about this and spent a good 10 minutes smelling it.

Thank you so much Amy.

Hi! This is my second time trying to post this; for some reason it didn't work before!

I received from Skittlebub the other day, and I loved it! I actually received it when my family was out of the house and my mum tried to make me wait until everyone else was in before I could open it. I managed to convince her otherwise, though!

I was really excited as soon as I got the brown paper off because I could see this little Toy story logo inside, which just made me really excited. Smiley

Once I got it open, the first thing I saw was this awesome Toy Story Cross stitch, which I am really excited to try. After I finish up what I am working on at the moment, this will definitely be the first thing I do.

Next Up was an absolutely gorgeous fascinator (which is unfortunately impossible to get a good action shot of) and matches perfectly a turquoise corset I just bought. I will try and get an action shot of it tonight, when I wear it out. Smiley

Finally, an extra which you could see in a previous pic, a nice big ball of black wool! I'd completely run out and couldn't get any more for ages. Smiley

I'll be using it up pretty soon, methinks!

Thanks again, Skittlebub, and TroubleT for making this such an awesome swap!

Here are the pictures of my awesome present from jo_mama.

She sent me a dinosaur shirt!

These pictures don't do it justice at all.  The colors and the detail are amazing.  I can't wait to wear it, it fits perfectly.

Attached to the outside of the packages was an asteroid pendant to wear with my dinosaur.  I love it.

She also sent me buttons and a really awesome card.

Thank you so much Jo.

Got my wonderful homemade goodies from RhymeswOrange today... Other day that made me smile! Yesterday I got my Button swap package, and today I got my birthday package! Here's the goodies.

A couple weeks ago, RhymeswOrange sent me a teaser picture, and I had several ideas what it was, and I got this!
Hedgehog Amiqurumi! This is my first one! I fell in love. My dog, Rosco wants to chew on it!

She also sent me "Twilight-Bella" fingerless mitts- She crochet it!

Here's a geeky me! It's hot outside so I took the photo quick and went back inside- Ignore those bruises on my arm.

Thank you!! I love everything!! I will be sending you a thank you card in the mail soon. Just need your address!!

I have received and I am thrilled to pieces.  MarleesMom made me a journal with some fabric I adore!!  She must have stalked me, because it is sooooo me.

is that fabric to die for or what??
This journal is so professionally put together. Here is the inside with more fabric covering the workings -

and finally a shot of the gold edging -

I am going to put my poems in this journal. I had better write some doozies to live up to the gorgeous container.
thank you very very much, MarleesMom. this was the first bday gift I opened (the big day is tomorrow.) I am so glad it got here for the 16th!  You rock.

Received the most phenomenal package from blupaisan!!!!!! We are decorating our living room in a nauticalish theme (think more inside of a ship/piratey sort of theme than lighthouses (boo!)  

Anyhoo....I knew I was receiving wall art but I was unprepared for the total awesomeness the package contained!  She truly went above and beyond my wildest expectations!  I cannot express the amount of joy and glee this package  brought me.  My husband totally loved it as well, which is good, because it was going on the wall regardless of what he though!

blupaisan, if you have better pictures, feel free to post them as I was unable to fully capture all the wonderful nuances.   All of the little pictures on it are drawn beautifully.  I love the burn marks, the dirt, the candle drips, and the bloody thumbprint!  It came with this very entertaining letter.

"As you can see it has survived much such as a fire, candle drippings, dirt (probably from the time he (Captain Clark Thatcher from the good ship Nanny B. which now rests on the ocean bottom somewhere off Fiji) was buried alive and managed to get out) and the bloody thumbprint he left when he killed Black Bobby, the man who did the burying."

I also received from GoldenSunshine.  I make jewelry and she sent me all kinds of findings!  Thanks!  Cheesy

Thanks for a great swap, TroubleT!
