I love the cuffs!  I need more of them to wear to work to cover up my wrist tattoo!

I'm glad you like them, elocinnicole! I feel like I don't get to pull out my leather stuff often enough. If anyone else wants a pair, I can easily whip up another set.  Smiley

I recieved from Nilmerg. She claimed me for clouds pillowcases, and then set me other things from my list <3

She sent me multiple colours of paper:

And a few scraps of wrapping paper:

And then my pillowcases. I got two! I love the details (like the multi-shaded buttons, and the stripe of darker blue. I really love the matching mismatch style, hence going for a different types of clouds bed set in the first place, so Nilmerg, this look was great!)

I received a wonderful package from whats_her_name. 

She made me these great, comfy socks just in time for the 17 inches of snow (why do people inhabit Minnesota?!)
And I love how the Reeses packaging is also in French!

And they fit great!

She also claimed me for stamps, which I wanted for card making, and the stuff she sent is perfect!

Thank you so much!  It's been a fun and successful first OWS for me  Wink

WOW!  That's a great package!  Handknit socks?!  Amazing!  So much bigger than a medium!!  You got spoiled!  Cheesy

Knitting goal for 2011: knit 500,000 stitches.  24,078/500,000 knit.  I think I'm going to need more yarn...

The socks look like a great fit!  I often wonder why people inhabit Saskatchewan, let alone Minnesota!!  You'd think that settlers would get the heck out as soon as the first winter ended!!

I hope you get lots of enjoyment out of all your stamps - have fun!!

(and what can I say - I love to spoil!)

Lewis Black has a great bit on this, I have it on his Live from Minneapolis CD.

Ahh, I am so behind in posting pictures! I am so sorry! But here are the AMAZING two packages that I received this week! Sorry for the crappy webcam pics, my digital cam is on the fritz.

First up, a ridiculously cute embroidery hoop from nilmerg. She put so much detail into it, it's unbelievable! I am sooo excited about it! It is my first hoop for my wall!!

And if that wasn't enough, she also sent the most adorable fabric strawberry magnets! They are currently on my space heater because it was the first magnetic surface I could find in my rush to hang them up! Don't worry, I'll take them off prior to turning it on haha Cheesy

She also sent the nicest letter and some candies from Australia (which aren't pictured because they promptly ended up in my stomach haha)

Thanks so so so so much nilmerg! Everything is amazing!

Next up is a ton of scrapbook stuff and erasers from redpopsicles

Included is three packages of paper, which I desperately needed, two packages of stickers which I immediately ripped open and used in my journal for the journal for a month swap! Also there's a bunch of patterned paper which will be great for my scrapbook for my trip to Costa Rica (which was a year ago, and I have yet to start. woops haha) and stamps, scissors and a ton of cute erasers! I especially love the turtle ones! Thanks so much redpopsicles

I REALLY want some funny hoop-framed embroidery! Wanna do a personal swap?

So glad that you liked the embroidery and the strawberries, thought I'd adult them up by turning my felt food into fridge magnets!

In case any one is wondering, the hoop is blue - I dyed it blue using food colouring! I think it worked really well - it's something I've done with wooden lolly/ice block sticks before and it worked well then and they seem to be colourfast.
