Okay get those Wist buttons ready.  I got an awesome package from Sherrie today.  It is amazing how much alike we are.

The box--Package #1

Crochet dishcloth (something related to her fav craft) and raspberry tea (something to drink)

Fabric (something related to her fav craft)

Crocheted bag (something in her fav color)
All folded up


Sour Starbursts and Pop Rocks (something edible), Inscence (something that smells good), Purse size sewing kit (something to carry in your purse), notecards with my initials on them

Playing cards with UTAH on them (something local), something non-craft related (book light), teacher stickers, sculpey kit, popup washcloth (teacher related), fancy post-it notes

Golden Lizard, lizard bookmark (I have two pet lizards) and a mini purse (something related to yarn)

The box--Package #2

The box was wrapped in this lovely quilted lapghan.

Sherrie's favorite holiday and my favorite holiday is Christmas, so she included a stocking and tree candle.

I asked for a non fiber related DIY kit and Sherrie sent me a decorative painting kit.  I can't wait to begin to practice.

Package #3
I received my package a bit ago and life has just gotten in the way of everything.  Here is my amazing package.

Sherrie made me an amazing crochet shawl/wrap and slippers.  She sent me some fabric for my stash and she sent a bowling towel and slippers for my room-mate too.  I feel very spoiled and my roomie was really surprised too.

Thank you so much Sherrie Smiley  I love everything.  love2teach

 I received my round 2 package the other day and I have been a horrible partner who has not posted the awesome pics..... but here they are!!!! 
First set is of my new craft kit... crochet!  The book actually looks perfect for me to figure this crochet thing out!  And some great yarn in the perfect colors!  Ready to start soon....

Second is to add to my scrapbook paper craft stash!  I have been doing a LOT with this stuff so I am glad that I can add more!  Some really awesome stuff that I don't have like brads and some nice .  There is also a great frame...there was also a nice vase/candle stick that has already found a prominent place in my living room...

Third is some great fabric stash that I can totally use!!!!  There was also some fave things in there... the Sonic straws... I live at Sonic!!! 

I received my first box and I was so excited getting started on the next one that I forgot to post all of my wonderful stuff!  I have a really great partner who I think is very thoughtful!  Here are some images!
This is the cool bookmark she sent with a couple of books for me to read!

This is a beautiful necklace and earrings that she made for me

A washcloth and neck warmer... neither of which I am capable of making myself so I am thoroughly amazed!

A Golden Snitch Necklace!  HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!?!  I am totally wearing this to the movie!

I am so excited about the next box..... so many ideas now!

Thanks texmexie!!!!  Grin

Package One Received!

I got this on Monday, but've been so busy with the chiropractor, puppies and house cleaning that I've not been able to get photos together until now.  Smiley  I took these with my roommate's camera phone, as I can't find my camera cable, so I'll have to tell what everything is as we go.

First off, all of it together, hanging out in my yard.  Smiley

Next, we start the best I could do for closeups Sad  Starting in the upper left and moving clockwise, we have a handmade box of hers from South Africa, a package of the coolest cocktail napkins (that's what we call them in the States) with pink and brown elephants on them that she reccomends for decopauge (I'm drooling already), a cute little owl key holder (I love owls, they remind me of my grandmother who collected them for many years), a dangly thing with birds and a bell (it's destined for my living room window) and two candle tarts from Yankee Candle (they smell very yummy!)

Next is a bag of buttons that I think I missed the explanation for (my daughter was AFTER ME to open faster!), a crocheted flower bag (again, said daughter is likely to snatch it, she's 10) and a very cute knitted scarf (I love the colors!  VERY much!  I'm trying to wear more color and less black...I'm not doing so well)

The only item that's new in this photo is the one that I looked through FIRST.  A cookbook from England!  With regional items!  I'm so excited, I want to make pasties, I miss them so much!!!

This last one has nothing new at first glance, but really, it does, I opened up the box to show the 2 shells inside, from her wedding bouquet!!  Very cool!!

Package 2 Received

Here goes nothing!

First we have all of the stuff in its fantastic glory!

Next we have a close up of the yarn that was sitting nice and pretty in a mesh style bag!

Followed by the contents of the second bag, this one sewn, as well as both of the remaining bags.  There are some Rollos (so much better in the Britain than here by the way), beads, a pincushion and a crocheted monkey!

A close up of the beads.  They are colors I need for other projects, so YAY!!

The monkey and the pincushion reclining at their lesiure on the lovely bag

And last but not least, the smaller of the two bags.  I'm having to fight off my oldest daughter for possession of this one, though I might give in if she agrees to back off my Rollos! Wink
