I don't want to hijack this thread with a long post, but my package from WYOKrista arrived yesterday and it is so fantastic!  In order to fully appreciate it, you need to read the letter she sent with it and since it requires looking at items individually, I'll just put links to the photos instead of the photos themselves to keep the space down.  Hope no one minds!

From the desk of
Assistant to the Regional Manager

June 4, 2007
Dear Stacy,
   Greetings to you from Scranton, Pennsylvania.  It is with great honor that you receive this letter. It has been brought to my attention that you have built a shrine in my honor.  This does not surprise me.  My many years of hard work and dedication to this country are paying off.  You are one of my many wise and courageous followers.  To help you honor me more, I commissioned Krista of Wyoming to construct some items for you.  You will find the following items in this box:

1.   A purse and cell phone holder constructed from my ties.  These ties were mine as I worked my way to the top.  They contain the blood, sweat and tears of hard work and toil.  The cell phone holder to keep your phone close to you at all times.


2.   A file box containing my words of wisdom.  Listen to me carefully in the future and use the blank cards to fill in messages that I will send to you.  It will then be your job to distribute this information to the general public.


3.   A rubber band ball and a personalized paperweight directly from my desk.  To remind you that rubber band balls are a terrible waste of your time and the paperweight to remind you that I am strong enough to hold down paper.


4.     A key chain.  This key chain is actually our secret communication device.  Michael Scott and myself will be sending you messages vital to our mission.


5.   A light switch plate.  If you put this in your bedroom, you can think about me first thing in the morning and last thing at night.


Stacy, I also need to tell you that it would have never worked between us.  For there is another for which my heart belongs.  (If that does not work out I will call you.)  For now, I must go as I have already said too much.
Best Regards,


Since we had moved during this swap she sent me a pretty set of just moved cards to send out (not related to this swap, but just because!):

Thank you so much Krista for my package - It absolutely fantastic and I love everything!

I'm so sorry for being away for a couple days--things have just been so hectic!!!  Okay...I received a great package from indie-knitter:  A t-shirt with a Michael quote on it and Shrute bucks! I will post pictures as soon as I can get the camera charged! 

Also, everything here looks so great.  I'm going to go give feedback before I have to leave the house again!  ARGH!!!

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha
