i received from superhooker over a week ago, but didn't get a chance to post pics before my vacation.  sorry i am posting so late!
superhooker spoiled the crap out of me!  seriously, as i was opening i couldn't believe there was just more and more awesome stuff wrapped in tissue paper.  she sent me a delightful parcel packed full with all kinds of wonderful goodies.  just take a look!

she made this shirt right off my ravelry favorites list.  as soon as i opened it, i just had to go throw on a bikini top and snap some pics  Cheesy

also from my ravelry faves is this wonderful market bag.  i adore the colors!

then, the cupcake madness.  i got a cupcake book, cupcake wrapper bowls, and cupcake push pins.

as if that wasn't enough, she also made me these beautifully summery hair pins and ring:

BUT WAIT, there's more!

she made me some fab jewelry - 2 necklaces and 2 pairs of earrings

and there's STILL more!
superhooker sent me a hat pattern i had been seriously coveting for a couple months now.  she took my love of reuse / reduce / recycle and she threw in 2 skeins of recycled cotton yarn to make the hat.  PLUS, a skein of this super cool yarn made from recycled soda bottles!  i am going to have to find a very special pattern to make with it......hmm.......

i already made the hat from the pattern (with a different yarn i already had been saving for this exact pattern no less lol)  here it is, though it's a little big on me despite the fact that i used smaller needles than the pattern called for to account for my abnormally small head.  it was a fun knit and i learned a few new techniques while making it.

and to top the whole thing off, superhooker found these beautiful dandelion note cards at the last moment and included them for me to frame.  i think i will do just that - they are so pretty!  plus i also had to include the cute card she sent to me.

superhooker, thank you so so so much!  i seriously don't even know what was a small, medium, or large in this awesome package!  everything is made so amazingly well they all look like larges to me!  you are so generous and skilled; i am in awe of you!

<3  superhooker, you rock my socks!!!  thank you!  <3

Nice job, superhooker! I am in awe of people who can just whip stuff up on the sticks. I like the market bag alot--it would be great for produce @ the farmer's market Smiley

I love that bathing suit cover up, superhooker.  I'm going to have to make on for myself.

Where is my mind?

Wow, that market bag rocks!  There's so much stuff to comment on that I'm going to just cover it with a blanket, "this package rocks!"

I love the hat you made, sugaree.  The cables are really lovely.  Smiley

Love the whole package, wow you lucky girl... I have to admit that when I scrolled through quickly for a brief moment I thought you were actually wearing the market bag as a top, since the top underneath was blue too!!

Doh I'll put that down to baby brain  Roll Eyes

i recieved!!!!

as stated in the main thread this package was a great surprise after a long day at work then church.    my grandmother has been  in the hospital since wed.  and our family has been mega stressed.  hopefully she will get back soon and we can all go back to normal.

tomorrow is my niece Sabian Pearl's last day of school so she got to stay up extra late with me and tear into the package with me.  which i am glad she did cause it was awesome to see her face light up with each item.

pictures are on my camera phone and i have no flash....so....i'll take some better pics tomorrow.  and this box wasw pack FULL!  these pictures do not include everything!

ALSO  my apologies in advance....i still cant figure out how to make the pictures flip the right way here...they never stay for me when i try....

first pic of the package...

recycled crayons which Sabian expclaimed..."AWESOME AUNTIE!!! I'm gonna use them for 3rd grade!"

awesome pirate purse....and i must admit that i'm not a huge pirate fan...i'm pretty much a square. ask anyone who knows me...but this puirse is so dang cute!!!  Sabian may try to jack it from me....but i'll steal it back.

cutest purse and jewelry box set ever!!  Sabian almost cried when i told her that..."this one you certainly cannot have"  stingy i know! hehe

Sabians FAVORITE!  CANDY LAND!!!  and a collectors series no less! i almost wanna hide it with her madam alexander doll to save forever!

and last pic of the night...STICKERS!!!!  and lots of them!

now...it is late..and the package does have a name on it but not a screen name...so i'll have to figure it out tomorrow.

thanks to my crafty detective!
