I received from LovelyMiss on Friday and I am sorry for the delay in posting but I have a bunch of swaps I was trying to get done this weekend, including this one....   But my package was AMAZING!!!!  and this post is going to be a ton of pics to show all the wonderfullness of my package!
This is the first half of the items....  The gnome is the lid to the box that she made and put almost everything in it... this image shows the cool animals and brad and beads... basically anything 3Dimensional that was sent.... Note the rainbow button garland!  So well done!!!!

Here is a close up of some of the coolest stuff from the first picture.... the audry hepburn image is a NOTEPAD!  It will not be used but it is PERFECTLY done!!!  And the craft fund jar.... adorable.... I am thinking I can use that for the new sewing machine I want..... great idea!

OK so this is the second half of the package... you can see the bottom of the box.. and inside the box is the CHARM BINDER that she made to use up the scraps!  Never seen anything like it and is is awesome and totally full!  Do you see the Bon Temps True Blood hand made journal?  How about the map notepad!  She also sent a vintage scarf which will get added to my collection for my bedspread that I am trying to make!   Also a great garland of flowers! 

There are two small boxes in the above pic,... one is glass beads and the other is this! OMG OMG OMG!!!

Finally I wanted to make sure there is a good pic of the two largest details... the charm book and the box .... the mustaches on it all have magnets in them and are interchangeable in the gnome.... JUST AWESOME!!!!

I am still in awe and just keep looking at everything and smiling...
THANKS AGAIN LovelyMiss!  I love it all!!!!

Yay!  I'm so happy you like everything, nostephot.  I know I've said that a million times by now, but it's true! Cheesy

Being the slightly obsessive personality that I am, I took lots of photos as I was packing up the box, so I thought I might as well post a few of them, too.  Hehe.  Hopefully that's ok.  


I used lobster claw clasps to attach the charms to some hook & eye tape (minus the eye) so that the charms can just be unhooked, and the clasps can easily be removed and used.

nostephot mentioned she like the Sookie Stackhouse series, and I noticed from her wist that she seemed to like handmade journals, so I made this themed one up for her.  On the inside front and back covers is all of the cover art from the book series.

Most all of the whimsy, and some nice blurring so my messy desk didn't take all the attention.   Roll Eyes  Haha.
