Yay! I'm so glad you got your package, sin esperanza...I was starting to turn into a tinsy bit of a nervous wreck waiting for it to get there!  Grin

Btw...I have to say thanks to you for the amusement your package created here. My husband has been living in fear since he asked what I was doing and my response was "Making a uterus."  Wink Well...Technically my response was "Making a uterus. I've never made a uterus before. Well..Except for my own...And, hey, didn't my mom kind of make that..." But the end result is the same. He'll never question my craftiness again. Mwah ha ha.

Dulc, that is absolutely gorgeous! That was so kind, thoughtful and generous of you. No matter how you tough you try to sound here on Craftster, you are a sweetheart.  Wink

Indeed. Dulcinea is an angel! The faculty and staff at my school thought long and hard about what kind of gift would be appropriate, and I just knew a  shawl would be lovely. I never thought that anyone would claim it from my list, let alone make something so downright gorgeous! I peeked without unwrapping the whole thing and the color is so rich in person. It is also really soft and light, which I think will be perfect. It's not just body-warming, it's heart-warming! Thank you again a million times Dulcinea for being such an amazing and generous person!

I recieved from Quilted and am just now posting pics.  Im sorry im late but my son has been pretty sick lately but I now have a chance to post them.   She claimed me for a whimsey jar.  This was so much fun to go through and look at!!

Here is the jar as is (ok i looked first and then put it back for photo purposes lol)

Included in the jar was two decorated close pins, beads, some vintage buttons, a couple of things of thread, a cute tiny pink piggy, ribbons and some faux leaves

She also included this pretty ring and necklace!!!  The pics dont do them justice but its the best shots I could get!!

Thank you so much for such a fun package!!

I got a great package from HokieKate yesterday. She claimed me for 1 1/2" fabric squares. I opened the package and found this -

My first reaction "ooohhh pretty!" my second reaction was Huh    Cheesy

Inside this lovely brocade purse was (best guess) 160! squares-
 (sample pics)

there's only one piece with the little boy (bottom center of one pic and top left of the other) but I love it so much I took 2 pics of him!  Cheesy

Thank you so much!!

I'm sorry I'm just now getting around to posting this Rosanna9041 (crazy, crazy weekend)! She made me the bestest package! She claimed me for a mini scrapbook for my nephews, but sent so much more (and did a totally amazing job on the scrapbook!) And Dane and Aidan are going to totally need their goodies now, 'cause they have a new baby brother who is getting all the attention!

Really cute tote bag! The lining has all kinds of animals on it. Pirate tattoos for the boys, and transformers activity book, they are going to flip, and some note cards for me!

Little craft kit for the boys, emergency vehicles, construction stickers, and tissue holder

Stickers, mini scrap book, corners, and photo keychain

Still with me?? Ok, here's the scrapbook! (well some of my fave layouts, it has tons of pages, and is 8 x8!)

Thank you!

Two packages in two days! That's awesome!

First I received from educharme. I just kept pulling out more stuff! She claimed me for a bento book, glass beads and a surprise.

First the Bento book. She said she wasn't happy with it, so she's sending me another! Very thoughtful, and I thank you! I'm sure I'll be using both!

Then the glass beads--BEAUTIFUL!!!

and more.... (I love the heart and the leaves!):

The surprises!!!
Some great recipes! I can't wait! Where did you get the recipe cards? I love the green color! and your handwriting is ... PERFECT!

And (it's so beautiful! it's like she knows me!) a blank Bento Recipe book she embellished. (again: so BEEEEEEEEEEEutiful!)

Tell me that's not gorgeous! You can't, can you! I actually gasped when I pulled it out of the package!

Next day I received my package from girlosun_9 who claimed me for some work placemats/silverware rolls and napkins. She was concerned about the fabric, but I really, really love it!!!

First set: LOVE! she make the napkin an interesting shape too!

Second set, done with metallic silver thread which I LOVELOVELOVE and which I've heard is very difficult to work with (thanks!)

She added this awesome wave design at the top:

YAY to me! lol

I really do love the metallic thread. I have some dress shirts that have just a bit running through the fabric. Makes me feel SEXY!!!

I can't WAIT to make something with those beads!!!

Sansa claimed me for some quilting magazines and sent these 4 great ones:


Then she decided that it wasn't crafty enough so she decided to make something from my wist and sent me this fantastic 'eye pod'


I had originally put this on my wist list because I planned to make it from my brother but it's so cute and my family has gotten so many laughs from it, I just can't part with it!
