I received from jojo_modjo and I am still in awe of her awesomeness!!!  After a horrible day and being sick on top of everything else, nothing made me happier than seeing this box on my doorstep... Well, except for opening it all!!!  Onto the photos of crafty goodness! Cheesy

Everything all together- it was wrapped in that super-cute cherry houndstooth paper (which is being saved for future use) Wink


I was totally spoiled!  I got some terrific home made cards and note paper with envelopes (how much do you love the zebra stripes?  Answer: LOADS!)  The most amazing charm bracelet- yes, it says "Annie" in SHRINKY DINKS!!!  Plus, cute star and dice earrings, and an amazing necklace made just for me in the style I wisted (Jo, you totally rock my socks off)!!!  Plus, so my bag doesn't get jealous, an awesome zipper pull that matches everything!  She totally nailed it, I am so impressed!

I also received Miko Cat lipgloss, which is indeed very Raspberrylicious!  My FAVORITE body butter from The Body Shop- Satsuma, yum- orange-tastic!  Some orange scented home-made jigsaw soaps, and a wonderful Honey Oatmeal soap!  They smell sooo good!  She also sent me some Malteasers Hot Chocolate, which I can't wait to try.  Plus, a great journal (which I fully intend on filling up), some adorable stainless steel magnets (I LOVE them!!!), and some frog wall transfers!

Thanks Jo!!!  You are so awesome!   Grin  Everything was really incredible and I'm lucky to have such an amazing partner!!!  I just hope you love everything as much as I LOVE my package!!!  Can't wait for the 2nd package!

I recieved from Gothchics the other day! I have to tell you this was probably the best package I've ever gotten! I loved everything! Here are the pics:

She gave me a TON of stationary! I'm not really a paper person but I loved it all I'm going to have a hard time using it because it's so pretty. I think i'm going to frame a few of them.

Here are the postcards:

She makes BJD dolls so she sent me a magazine and there is also some handmade paper she made with her daughter.

She sent one of her patterns for her dolls:

She sent a hand made card, my picture doesnt do it justice:

she made me a wallet, just like the one she uses, its got pink print on it and on the back it has the same print but in black. She has awesome sewing skills Shocked

she made me a CD holder, this will come handy because I just got a new car.

She made me the cutest apron and potholder set.

If that wasn't enough she made me a Crochet hook roll. I love love this! It way better then the ziploc bag i used to use.

Here a mirrior she made me, its got the lyrics to one of my favorite songs on it, Landslide:

My kids instantly wanted these, ready to paint magnets:

and lastly some cute little resin embellishments she made:

She also sent a really cute pendant a heart with a skull in the middle, but my daughter has it and chocolate, but they didnt last to long  Wink  Thanks for eveything!!

A message to allllll my peoples:

I promise that I'll update my gallery-link post shortly. I keep forgetting to do it! I do have a running list of who has received, though, so no worries there. If you haven't posted to the gallery yet but have gotten your package, PM me, ok?

I'm really loving this gallery, BTW... the items are so varied, it's like a shipwreck. But in a good way. Smiley

Anything I can reach I do myself.
