You made my day with such an enthusiastic post. After seeing all of the cool crafts and packages, I was getting very nervous.

Ok, finally getting my pictures up. I hate being sick... Cry

Anywho, here's the fab box that cinnamonteal sent me for our first round. I opened it to find numerous numbered packages (no puppy to open mine, sadly)

First, after her letter, I got me some postcards. One's from her hometown, Santa Barbara, and 2 others are cool vintage ones. I actually collect postcards so the vintage ones are pretty neato.

Her photos were "artsy" photos, rather than pics of herself & her family, so here they are. I really dig the one with the trees. It kind of looks like it should be on a poster with some kind of motivational saying on it.

She sent me a bunch of cool cards, some of which were from her collection and some of which she made. I can't decide if my favorite are the B-movie spider ones or the pink-and-black skeleton type ones (ya, that's a pink and black Jack Skellington - it's fly).

For her show & tell items she sent me her favorite candy (sour patch watermelons), her favorite recipes, a sketchbook (because she draws), a knit washcloth that she made, and an apron for cooking (one of her favorite things to do).

No action shot for the apron, because I look really bad right now from being sick...

Last, but not least, for my random other goodies I got a giant petal pincushion made with Indian fabric. I LOVE Indian things, and I think it's hilarious that we both sent each other the same pincushion. I also got a tie on rainbow headband made out of super soft yarn, the Jack Skellington stamp she used to make the card, some ribbon that looks like measuring tape, a knit ring she made, and some Jelly Bellies from the factory by her house.

I love everything, thank you cinnamonteal!

Anything I can reach I do myself.

It seems fabric-y... I haven't popper it open yet, but I can tell it isn't vinyl or anything like that.
