Now that my computer & camera have decided they like each other after all, I can share our adventures today.

As we were headed out to eat, I happened upon a nice couple of friends in our mailbox.   They must have heard about last winter's record lows as the brought their own scarves in preparation.

Yes, the sweetly fierce dragon and her bright daughter.

They loved the spicy burrito, but needed a drink to keep the fire at bay.
(It isn't nice to burn down an eating establishment with patrons in it....Even accidentally)
Then we all shared Jelly Belly beans as a dessert.

Followed by some playtime for the kids under Mama's watchful eye to burn off all that energy!

Finally posting pics, sorry it took me longer than I thought!

So when I came home earlier this week I had this super awesome Hello Kitty covered package!

....and found out that I am the excited new winner of Aisy's makeup kit!

She even covered the bottom of the altered tin in Hello Kitty! Love!

In my excitement I totally forgot to take a picture of the contents. A tinted lip balm and three eye shadows. I did, however, snap a shot of the tinted lip balm on.


and after!

Amazing, right?!?  Tongue

I really really love the lip balm, it's hard for me to find shades that look good, and it's a nice coppery shade that is perfect. It's soft and moisturizing and even smells like mint and tingles! Thank you so much Aisy!

Okies, I now happy to share with you all my prize!


A MANDRAKE?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!  Omg omg OMG OMG!!!  So excited!!  I was so coveting this little bundle of ear piercing joy!  And, he was sent with some candy so he wouldn't get hungry on the way.  Needless to say, he was very hyper and extra ear piercing when I took him out of the package.

Look at the face!!!  So much personality!  I love his eyebrows and button nose!  Too cute!!

I had to don some earmuffs so I could snuggle him safely.  He went to a Halloween party with me last night and he had a blast.  He also accompanied me to work today.  I love him!!!

Yeah, I'm pretty happy.  <3

What's with all this - I received but will post pictures tomorrow?!?!?!?!?  Come on ladies, the suspense is killing us!

Hey! In my defense, I had just driven 8 hours through NY traffic.
But when I got home, I saw this:

Now what could be in there?

Yay! He's so adorable! I definitely had my fingers crossed for him, and I'm ecstatic that he was my prize! And he traveled with some really cool fabric too!

He's just as cuddly as he looks! I was worried that since he's from a much warmer climate than Vermont that he would get too cold. But he seems to like it here.

Thank you Whistley! He's awesome.

Here's my prize (it was in my top ten!):

 Deliciously scrumpciously squishy handspun yarn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Belladune sent me this tasty parcel (no, I didn't eat this yarn, but it comes close to giving me the same pleasure as eating, which is saying a LOT!).

She also sent a yarn cuff:    

I admit that I didn't know what this was for until Belladune let me in on the secret!  It fits and it's lovely!  What a great way to show off that little bit of handspun leftover from a project!  Thanks, Bella!  You rock!

Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!  Yesterday I had a long hard day of working outside.  At the end of the day I was so sore and worn out that I barely had enough energy to walk to the mailbox.  But I did and THERE IT WAS!!!!  I hurried as fast as I could to get cleaned up so I wouldn't get anything dirty and then I finally got to open it.

Ta Daaaa!
Firstly there is this amazing beaded necklace by Onyxnox. It is beautiful and I can't wait to get to wear it out somewhere.

Secondly there are the wonderful fingerless mitts.  I have wanted a pair of these for so long.  They are perfect and they fit perfectly and I know I will be wearing these from now on. They are so comfortable and warm.

And THIRDLY there was and extra surprise!  A beautiful forged wire bookmark!  It is truly gorgeous and very sparkly. I really Love it!

Everything is absolutely fantastic.  Thank you so much Onyxnox!!!  Your work is incredible and your package really lifted my spirit.

Group shot of my wonderful prizes.

I received a couple of days ago, but I just now have the time to post pics.  Can I just say that I LOVE what I got?!  jillybeans sent me the cutest, most adorable tote bag!!

The lighting in my dining room is rubbish, so the pics aren't great, but the paint is so pretty and shiny.  This thing is so cute!!  And look at the little dangly she made for it!  Swoon....

the extras.  I've bought these little puzzle erasers for my niece, but I've never seen them in sewing paraphernalia!  And I heart buttons!!


jillybeans, I love this package, thank you so so SO much!!

WOOOHOO! The delivery slip I got yesterday was my FOCR prize!  And it's quite the coincidence as I got soap too Grin.  I received a lovely set of soap and bath salts and a fab crocheted wash cloth from tcmatteson.  And the flavors are just perfect for me, as there is no lavender hehehe.  I'm allergic (I think as it makes me sneeze and doesn't smell lovely at all to me).

It was all packaged up so wonderfully!

Look at all the yummy flavors.  The one covered up by the bow is oatmeal, milk, and honey.  And I Love Love Love coconut so I'm super stocked about that one.  But they all are some of my favo flavors.

She also sent two packages of unscented bath salts.  Which is fab as I love baths but have troubles with strong smells.  I will be using some of these tonight as I had a long day painting today...and the last four days LOL.  I'm very much looking forward to using them.  The salts are displayed upon the huge sumptuous crocheted wash cloth.  I've never had one of these and I'm looking forward to using this too tonight Grin

Thank you so much Tamra.  You did an amazing job of picking flavors and scents that suit me Grin

They really are lovely!  Coming from someone that owns some of A2K's great yarny items, including a custom pair of felted rainbow striped mittens, her stuff ROCKS!

Here's my AWESOME prize!!!  Cannot believe my wife drew this HUGE winner for me Cheesy

On a temporary spot on my wall so I could take a pic.  This will be joining the many other hoops I've received in swaps on my hoopla/art wall.  I actually spaced things out too much when I made it, as I have continued to receive hoops and art and am out of room Tongue

Check out the back!  Is this printable fabric?  Backing is a thin layer of felt or batting with the label machine stitched on.

SO great!!!  The stitching is TOTALLY perfect.  What better gift for a mod to receive than a hoop immortalizing the best place to hang out on the internet Smiley  Thanks so much!!

As promised, here are some pics of my little trunk-or-treating friend on our favorite picture taking rock. (I didn't get any pics of him at the party, he was having too much fun with my daughter who has now officially claimed him.)

Here he is in his in his jellyfish costume. Ready for Halloween! (He also came with some candy to share but it has been shared and enjoyed)

His mom wanted him to be warm and comfy as it is getting cold here in Utah so she made him a warm starfish bedroll. He snuggled in it last night. You can also see how cool the jellyfish costume is.

Goldfishpollywog, you are amazing! I am in awe of your skills! We love him! My daughter has renamed him "Bluey" (and I think he has become a her... Wink) Thank you so much! Cheesy

I received a few days ago but couldn't find my camera.  Now my camera is found- so here are the pictures!  I received from Puzzler.  The first picture is more true to color of the purple scarf, and the second, well is just a little better picture.  This scarf is really short for me so my daughter is going to use it for one of her stuffed animals.  thanks Puzzler.

oh gee... the fist pic is horrible.  well the scarf is a dark purple

Hey gang!  I received from frosty772 earlier this week and have been battling typical Seattle gloom in order to get photos, and failing. So for lovely posed photos, please see her original post:   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391053.msg4648780#msg4648780

I did grab a couple silly shots, though, in one quick sun break. 

Here's a group shot of my aprons...

From the top, that's a white Boeing 747-800 apron. (yes, I R A GEEK)  Wink  Then a little pink and blue terry cloth half-apron that my grandmother used.  Then Frosty's lovely harvest/fall/autumn/Thanksgiving apron (LOVE LOVE LOVE), then a Christmas apron my mom gave me in the 80s, and then an apron made out of curtain fabric from one of my brothers' bedroom when we were little. He wanted yellow walls with orange trim, and these brown/orange/yellow monkey/jungle curtains that were much brighter colored back in the 70s!

So Frosty's apron joins a very elite group of vintage and sentimental aprons.

THANK YOU!  I love it.  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3

ps - the apron is also Phoebe-approved. Every time I've left it sitting around, she has sat upon it.
