woohoo! i'm the first one to post in the gallery!

i received the MOST gorgeous gifts from GougeAway today.
they arrived all wrapped up like REAL presents!

here's the scrumptious body scrub which smells divine and will go to great use with my dry skin.

AND, in all its beauty, the shadow box:

i gasped when i opened this. it is totally my style and so well done.

thank you so, so, so much Ali!! i love my presents!

oh yeah, there was a giant lollipop too that got crunched in the mail  Undecided, and then crunched by me! Grin

Wow! That shadow box is amazing! What wonderful presents!

I got totally, utterly spoiled by KristyGuna today. These incredible fabrics were waiting for me when I got the mail. There are four beautiful brocades---two of them are actually from China!  And some gorgeous fat quarters for me to play with.

Here's the pretty bundle:

The brocades. There are two with cherry blossoms, one is pink, the other a pretty light purple. The black one, and the purple paisley are from China.

And these cheerful fat quarters. Some of them have shiny gold details on them.

(for some reason I am having a problem getting a picture of the fat quarters to show up here. This thumbnail sized one is the only thing that will show up. If I figure out why, I'll edit this post and put a better picture of them here later on)

Thank you so much, KristyGuna! I love every one of them!  Grin

Those fabrics are lovely!  I'm a sucker for brocade myself, lol.  I especially like the black one Smiley

GougeAway, I like that you wrapped all yours Smiley

I am so glad you like your birthday gift, k8kre8s!  I wrapped it up  because I know just how fun it is to rip paper off of something for your birthday, right?!?

Well, I am super excited because I received my package from sonjaboo, and it is absolutely amazing, more than I could have ever expected.

(Sorry about the photo quality, I only have my camera phone!)

She sent me a bundle of beautiful paper for my altered book:

She also sent me these fabulous baubles and other wonderful oddities for my altered book:

And finally, a plethora of candy that reminds me of being a little girl, cavities and all:

Thank you so very much for everything, Erika!  This was my first package I've received through a swap, and it put me in a good mood thats sure to last, at least until school starts!

I can't believe I hadn't found this thread yet! The birthday presents so far are so wonderful! It makes me hope that my birthday girl likes her present, I wish I could have sent more.

WOW!  I can't believe how fast you guys are at sending out stuff!!

I am such a slowpoke!!

Hmmmm--love body scrubs!  The shadow box is really lovely and would look good anywhere!! Hey, one thing good about candy--we don't care what it looks like--it eats the same!! ha ha

Fabric is always a good gift--ha ha--especially for a fabricholic!  You are going to make omiyage? You have to post when you do!!!!

Sonja is secretly wanting to make us all chubby--look at that candy!!
k8kre8s--do you have any of your altered books posted or are you just getting into them? I received a DIY kit for ATC's and it included a lot of "stuff" and papers--I was thinking of making an altered book to hold my ATC's that I trade--not sure where or how to start!!!

Nice job ladies--and no need for anyone to get swap anxiety in this swap!!!  A birthday gift is a gift from the heart here!!

New rule, though: candy has to be shared with the organizer, hee hee Wink jk

Release the Craftin'!

I am having camera troubles at the moment (took all my pics last night and now it's not loading onto the 'puter...ugh.)  But I wanted to post that I received from the very talented susanab a few days ago-- she sent me a beautiful fabric headband, fabulous fabric cuff, and a button with my address/map location on it!   I love everything susanab!  Thank you so much and I promise I will load pics as soon as I can!   Grin

Gougeaway, I am so glad you enjoyed your package!  It was fun finding all the candy... I had a hard time sending the pop rocks away... I do enjoy a good pop rock!   Wink  lol  And I hope you post pics of your book when it is done!  I'd love to see it!

LaughingLark, that fabric is gorgeous!  I can't wait to see what you make with it all!

And that bird collage... LOVE it!   Grin

Look at these beautiful Kanzashi pins SonjaBoo made for me! I love them all! She did a fantastic job on picking out colors that I love. Kiss

And, as if she hadn't spoiled me enough with these three lovely pins, she also sent me some fabric to play with!

Thank you SonjaBoo!!
