I received an awesome (huuuuge) second package last week from EdenKitty and just couldn't get these up until now... I tried to capture everything in one big picture with some closeups -- there is a huge stash of fabrics for quilting and crafting (awesome patterns and textures), there were 4 containers of cotton candy from her company (so delicious that one didn't even make it to this picture), a Hello Kitty stamp, an awesome fleece PB&J toast pillow (I have a ton of wishlisted toast items), a yarn dyeing kit with kool-aid in rainbow colors and two things of yarn, a bottle with "Wishes" engraved on it, a really pretty pink brocade journal, yummy honey sticks (that go with the yummy tea from pacakge #1 so well.. Smiley )

I was so spoiled -- thanks so much EdenKitty for the awesome goodies!

Ok I couldn't find my camera after the move so I am going to post package 1 with package 2. Najaorama put each item in a separate numbered envelope but because my stupid postman left my package at the wrong door, under a gutter over night after a storm, they were soaking. Fortunately the goodies all survived mostly unscathed, it has been really hard to not use them until I had pics posted!

She sent me butterfly bobby pins for something w/ fave animal (in lieu of dragonflies), passion tea because it has fave color on it (which I have always used to make iced tea btw), chinese jasmine soap for something with fave smell (could not love more), paper origami cranes for something made with paper, but I have no idea where they flew off to, a vintage wooden spool (related to thread), something sentimental- wedding favor prayer flags (brilliant idea!!), vintage postcards (she collects), spiced hot cocoa for something drinkable- something I've always wanted to try too, bookmark for something related to reading, and a collapsible funnel for kitchen.. we needed this, we use old breastpump cones lol.
She also included a little raw silk, and iron on typewriter and bubbles! She and I have such similar taste, I love picking your own partner!
Next is package 2 which I really really love.

First, she gave me 5 rolls of cotton yarn (which is my favorite to crochet with btw) in jewel tones. I love it! I have some of the colors already.
Then the smalls: I wear headbands every single day because I can't stand hair in my face and I love color. So she sent me all these perfect fitting reversible headbands!! I always meant to make some for myself but hate working with elastic in casings, she just put a thick length of elastic though, it's genius!
The medium item is a crochet hook clutch made with some nifty vintage newspaper she appears to have turned into fabric.I love it! I've really needed one.

 I love that the front says "Wanted, steady woman".
Thanks so much naja, I think I will be begging you for personal swaps for years to come.

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

Sorry, very picture heavy.

I received from Casey1201 the other day!!!! She sent such great stuff Smiley
Bacon strips for the dogs, a car magnet that says "My best friend chases squirrels", however I'm tempted to cross out squirrels and replacing it with lizards Smiley, a nice piece of fabric, cocktail kit which includes fun umbrellas what a great excuse to actually throw the party that I've been wanting to, a nice bracelet, and a fabulous tree of life pendant.

Also, a dish towel and fabric button letter

Yep, not it yet, a great apron. I would've never thought to put those fabrics together, but they look so great altogether

And...a mini art quilt. I'm originally from Chicago so I definantly cheer on the Bears and my husband is from Philly so he likes the Eagles and totally turned me into an Eagles fan. So most items we have are Eagles, it is awesome to finally have some orange and blue hanging up.
And here it is hanging next to Eagles.

This is what I sent her
A California pillow with the heart in San Diego inspired from her wists.

Along with a ruffle skirt with a matching ruffled purse with a fabric flower clip. (unfortunantly this is the best picture I have)
