Shocked  Yikes!  That's just too early to be out delivering mail!

lol, I don't blame you for buying cute fabric long before you need it.  Wink   I buy cute fabric without plans for it, to have it on hand "just in case".  Wink 

I buy a lot of "just in cases"

hehe.. it looks like a mini fabric store in my house.. hehe

Got any sci-fi?

Eeeek, I have been SO busy lately with everything in life. I won't go into excuses, but I've been majorly busy with non-crafty things. Anyway, I received my amazinggggg package from my main lady (ha!) Miss Javastain awhile back and here's some pics of what she made me!

I love everything!! Cheesy

Here's the whole loot! Well, minus one thing.. more on that later!

She sent me:
* 2 big blue Starbucks "Boo!" coffee mugs
* a white coffee holder in a knitted to-go style Wink
* 2 new bookmarks, which I needed desperately!
* a very sweet letter
* TONS of new stationary envelopes with coffee & my addy on them!
* 2 black & red (my fave color combo!) knitted coffee mug holders
* an awesome red & black bracelet (that fits perfectly!!)
* lip balm in 2 delicious and very yummy flavors
* and last but definitely not least.... ESPRESSO BROWNIES! At first I thought it was coffee when I opened my package because they smelled so good! Silly me.. I was so excited to get her package that I didn't read her letter that came with it. So when I unwrapped this "coffee", I found out they were actually brownies! Mmmm, they were so good! Sadly, I don't have any pics of them because... well, my fiance and I gobbled them all up! So delicious!! Grin

Black & red coffee mug holders so I won't burn my hands while sipping! Also, the cute bookmarks she made! She included a coffee bean "charm" on the end of one of them! So I'll be thinking about coffee while reading any juicy novel.. haha Cheesy

Sorry that it looks like I have an extra stong grip hold on that coffee holder... hmm.. Anyway! Here's the white coffee holder she made! She included a coffee cup from Starbucks to keep its shape! She also suggested a good idea, keeping change in this for my next coffee fix! I love my new bracelet too, it fits perfectly on my wrist!

The yummy yummy lip balm she made!!

My bookmarks! I love the coffee beans on the end of the Starbucks one! Cheesy

She sent me TWO of these blue giant coffee mugs from Starbucks! I love the ghosties on them, and at the bottom of the mug they say, "Boo"! I love mugs that say something at the bottom of them so when you're down to the last drop, you get a cute surprise. Haha Cheesy

And again, I didn't take any pictures of the Espresso Brownies she made.. I wish I did though! They were so gooooooood, so I may have to bother my lady Javastain for the recipe! Kiss Haha! My guy has also been asking me to make some too! I've created a monster from this Coffee Swap!!! Aaahh! Those brownies were just so damn good!

Thank you so much Javastain for all the lovely creations you made! I love them ALL! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! And thank you too Avesthel for organizing this swap! I love everyone's packages!

To everyone that celebrates it, hope you all have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow! And I hope everyone gets a chance to enjoy a nice warm cup of java after eating lots of food Wink

What a great package! I'm jealous of everything, but as soon as you said brownies I started salivating. I agree on the "cute things at the bottom of mugs" statement! I have one with a little porcelain pig that rocks!
And javastain, what a killer idea for lip balm cases! Must try that!
