I'm sorry for not having posted pics of my last two kits too... An anime plushie kit and a felt book kit!
I forgot to do it before we went away for a while  Undecided Not sure when we're going home again (at the latest sunday after next..)
Please post pics yourselves if you have photos - if not, I'll post pics when I get back home to the kits.

When I got out of the shower today I heard a knock at the door but didn't really make an effort to run for it because I thought a)it's probably someone trying to sell me something and b)i was still in a towel.

Out of curiousity I peeked out from the curtains and was very disappointed to see the Canada Post truck driving away! Luckily the package was dropped off at the Post Office after dinner so I was able to pick it up.

I received a great DIY kit from Yirq. It is for Crocheting with beads and including a bunch of amazing things...
-a fuchsia pink tote bag (my fav. colour!!!)
-an instruction book
-a plate to hold the beads
-a ball of the crochet thread
-a crochet hook
-pink beads
-gold end things (I don't know what they are called LOL)
-clear nail polish
-needlepoint needles
-and M&Ms to munch on while I'm crafting


Thanks Yirq for this really cool kit, I'm looking forward to trying it out.

My friend finally came over and took pictures for me (and tried to steal my diy kits) sorry for the delay in getting these posted.

 First kit is from uradelight, to decorate a tin.
 Second is 2 kits from Rowdy Vamp Raquel, journal making and stenciling.
 They are all great! Thanks ladies!

I got such wonderful kits from CraftyMcCrafterson, Vildhavre, and Glittergirl that I feel bad...my pictures totally can't do them justice (especially since I was silly and ripped into them to start crafting before photographing)
I really love what everyone sent me!  Thank you so much!
The first kit I got was from GlitterGirl and it was a Wilton's Cake Dye kit for dying yarn.  It was SO complete.  Many different colors of cake dyes, gloves, and super detailed instructions.  I couldn't have asked for a more comprehensive kit.

The second kit I got was from CraftyMcCrafterson and it was a great journal making kit.  She pre-drilled holes for me and everything.  The kit included a tiny sample journal as well as all the fixings to make my own (covers, lots of different paper for the inside, embroidery floss to bind and tons of ephemera to decorate).  This is a picture of my journal in progress.

The last kit I got was from Vildhavre (she sent all the way from Sweden!) and it was a spindle spinning kit. I've been dying to learn to spin, so I was super excited.  She included two huge balls of roving and the makings of my own drop spindle.  I especially loved the decorated CD that I get to use in the spindle.  Since it was the last one that came, I finally was able to remember to take a picture before I started in on it.

Thanks again, ladies!  It was a pleasure swapping with you and I'm really grateful for the great kits you sent me.  And apologies for the bad pictures...I was just so excited to get started crafting.

Wow, wow, wow! I am just loving the variety in all of these kits! They make me want to learn even more new crafts!

And, I'm impressed with those folks who have already made things with their kits. I have been so busy (and hot), I haven't had a chance to make anything with my kits! But, after next week, just before school starts again, I should have time...hmmmm...I'm going on a trip and if I bring the book from my book purse kit, I can read it before I convert it into a purse!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.
