 Grin YAY!!! I just received from h-chan and she totally spoiled me! She sent not one but TWO awesome pillow covers their totally my style and will be adorning my bed shortly. She also sent me a hello kitty fabric measuring tape, so awesome! And she sent a hello kitty notepad to match, how awesome is that?! Thats not all... she also sent me a variety of animal print ribbons, plus a big box of whoppers which are slowly disapearing as I write this, lol! Well heres the pics, enjoy!

 Grin Thank you again h-chan you totally rock!! Grin

Awesome purse and pillow covers - definitely diggin' on the multitude of zebra prints! Cheesy

I finally was able to get to the store for the last bit I needed for PosiTori's package, should hopefully be able to send tomorrow *fingers crossed*

And happy belated birthday Ivory!

EEEE! This is the second day I came home from work to get a package from Craftster! SO AWESOME....

Want to know what was more awesome? What Suereal made me!!! Holy Hobbits on a diet, Batman! I am floored!

Suereal choose to send me a circle skirt. It is just as I wanted. Polka dots, sea foam and a funky 50's buckle JUST SCREAMS ME!!!

She also made me a matching headband (tie top? Tongue ) with spider lace on the inside (I love spiders!!!) and threw in a 1969 Stitch and Sew magazine and two adorable cell phone charms. Sadly my phone doesn't allow me to have them but I will put them on zippers or my keys or who knows where I'll stash them!!!

I have plans to wear this skirt on my birthday... at work AND out for dinner and then the "sitting-in-the-car-eating-apple-pie-and-watching-a-movie-at-the-lakeside" date my boyfriend has planned (he's recreating our favorite date  Grin)

Thanks so much Suereal! You're sewing talent astounds me!!

Oh YEAH!!  Everytime I make clothing I do nothing but worry that it won't fit.  I was especially worried about the hemming as I'm nearly 8 inches taller then you, so I kinda had to guess.  Can you believe someone just gave me that fabric?  I knew it had to be a circle skirt, so when I read your list, it was nice to discover who it was meant for.  And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

I suppose if you were really brave you might be able to wear it as a top, but I was thinking hair band heheh

Well, it does fit. And there is always a way to make it a top... who knows... even wearing it over a bathing suit... now I need to find a pattern for a 1950's bathing suit and I'm set for the beach!

Thanks RedMenace!

Love those zebra pillow covers, they remind me of a an outfit my Barbie had when I was a kid back in the 80's.

That circle skirt looks amazing. Everytime I try to make circle skirts the waistband comes out all funky, but I love how you did it with the belt. That fabric is awosme too!

Already so much beautiful packages, this will be one awesome gallery! Cheesy
Can't wait to receive my package :3

Can't start on my packages yet, I'll get the supplies I need for my bday haha.
But don't worry, PosiTori and Tygermane, your packages will be ready on time (:
