Finally my photos from the package I received from SnazzyJazzy - I've been feeling less than 100% over the past few days so haven't gotten around to posting yet.  Sorry!  I really appreciate the package.

On to the pics:

very cute reusable bag - the fabric reminds me of Alice in Wonderland (perhaps because I'm brainstorming for the Alice swap Wink).  I may have to beef up the handles as I worry the ribbon, which is very pretty, may not hold up to anything heavy.
a customized "to do" list and "frugal foods" notebook - Jazz even started me off with a few recipes in the notebook
an awesomely cute retro-style sailor bib for my little dribbler.  I've been making more of an effort to put bibs on her so I don't have to change her wet shirts 5 times a day
and a spotty apron, because a girl can never have too many aprons!

My partner really 'got' me. she made everything in my favorite color combo, and everthing is so cute!

Firstly, A cupon organizer in cute retro kitchen fabric!

and the inside in red and teal  Grin

next, 3 mesh produce bags, also in red and teal (I only photographed one)

and finally!!!! two awesome reuseable grocery totes in red and teal!

and one of them has this awesome bird embroidered on it!!

I cant wait to go grocery shopping!!!!

The never ending quest for pants continues...

I have many more pics to post, but havent taken them yet on account of not really being home.  However, I did receive from my partner psychonmemphis and loved everything.  Heres the one pic I can send now.  I wear these armwarmers that she made me all the time!  They're so warm and comfy and were inspired from my wist Smiley  I'll post everything else another time.  Smiley

Pamelabd--Did you use a pattern for that bag?  I LOVE it!   Wouldn't mind making one myself.
