Ok, I got my awesome package from pinokeeo yesterday...and I LOVE EVERYTHING!!!

First off, check out this magazine bowl...my hubby was amazed at this:

And here is the greatest journal ever!  The outside:

and the inside:

Here's some toys she made for my boys!  A car, a jacobs ladder (this is a total hit, with them all!) and a ring catching game (a total hit with all the adults!):

And last, but totally not least, the coolest windchime!  It is made from some cans and a cut up old broom handle!  We really love this!  My hubby hates metal windchimes, but he LOVES wooden ones, and he kept holding it up and clinking the pieces together to hear the chiming last night.  It is sadly modelled by my bathroom door right now, because we're waiting for lazy hubby to put up a hook for it outdoors!

Thanks so much pinokeeo!  Everyone in the family says thanks!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

Nice Pics.  Glad your family likes everything. 

The bowl is made from my junk mail and it was so much fun to make that I am in the process of making one for myself.

The inside pages of the journal is some left over tractor feed computer paper.

I recieved the most awesome package from Kaissa.  She completely spoiled me.
Here is the hot/cold pad that she made with cute turtle fabric.  She filled it with flax seed and scented it with lavender.  I love lavender!!
Next to it are my fabric fabric softener sheets.

Here are pics of the spray bottle she covered with fabric and appliqued a clothesline on.  Yeah my pics do not do this justice. I love the teeny tiny panties.  They are so cute!!

A bag made of recycled thrift store clothing.

A huge strawberry shopping tote. 

A cd pendant fishing line necklace. 

A really cool gardening book with lots of cool info.

Picture frame for my daughter.

And a crochet hook roll.  I have been needing one for a very very long time.

I hope I didn't miss anything. 
Thank you so so so sooooooooooo much Kaissa!!!!!!
Kaissa is the coolest!!!!!!!!

Handmade and vintage goodness!
