I received my package of Awesomeness from Ms Indigo-roses on Friday but I only had a minute to look at it before I had to rush out again so I didn't get a chance to really *dig* into it until today. My oh My what a great package!!!
Thank you so much Indigo-Roses! I love everything and I'm simply amazed at the crochet! Especially the star!

Oh, wait - the rest of you don't have a clue what I'm 'on' about! So.... here we go!

The "works" all wrapped up! (ok, so I peeked and had to restore the wrapping before photographing... but you guys understand, right?)

the works - unwrapped!

#8 local - Indigo-roses lives near Hershey PA - so some yummy dark cocoa (lucky for me!) I love dark chocolate!!!
#20 2 favorite recipes - Pumpkin apple muffins and Sugar Cookies - perfect for the holidays! Can't wait to try them out (my husband expressed the same sentiment about the pumpkin apple muffins!)
#17 - a selection of teas - also a favorite of mine especially on cool afternoons!
#10 - favorite winter drinks - Hot Chocolate (no explanation required, right!?)

#11 Essential - hand sanitizer! Ms Roses works in a daycare facility and finds this an essential - I work with foreclosed/abandoned homes and find it to be an essential too! (for different reasons but...)
#2 Bath and Body Works - pocketbook sized sanitizers in "seasonal" scents! the orchard one took me right back to New England! Mmmmmm!
#6 - (this made me laugh right out loud and Ms Roses will understand when her package arrives!) Fuzzy socks! but not just any fuzzy sock! They are "Shea infused" and have nonslip soles! (and they happen to be in my favorite color too!!!!) I too, get cold feet in the winter time!

#5 - decorating - this amazing crocheted snowflake!! OMG! I'm trying to learn crochet and tatting and, well, I'm such a novice.... this is so beautiful!
#16 paper - this beautiful paper snowflake! I wish my photo showed the detail more clearly - simply beautiful! I'll have to set it someplace high up to keep it safe until I can hang it for the holiday!

Another shot of the crocheted snowflake and then #14 a book by a favorite author! This looks like a fun read and a chuckle! Will help with stress relief!!!

#25 - a cap!!! Isn't this awesome! I don't have a single warm cap! This will be so great for my morning walks with the doggie (who's name is Katie BTW!)! It's so soft and snugly! And it's beautifully made! (Indigo-roses says that crochet is her "best" craft and I can certainly say that she is very very talented!)

last but certainly not least!
#22 - something given in previous holiday - crocheted potholder and dishcloth - these are to nice to use! *sigh* I doubt if I will ever get anything I crochet to look in anyway as fine as this! Ah well, these are beautiful and I will enjoy them!
and the candy corn - for the *brief* moment it survived in my house.... gone! (I love candy corn too and I'm glad you sent only a sample! I can't stop once I start on it!!!)

Such a lovely package! Thank you so much Indigo_roses! I love it all! I loved reading your note and getting to know you!

Craftster keeps the whimsey in my life!

I received my package from aheartofglass! There were lots of goodies in there!  Cheesy

The box was wet - it sat on my porch through a snowstorm, but everything inside of it was okay!
Here's it all after I emptied the box

After everything was unwrapped

I received...
1) emergency chocolate
5) leaves to decorate with
6) purple fuzzy socks to wear - aheartofglass laughed because we each sent purple fuzzy socks!  Grin
Cool cards and dice from Nevada Casino, and a Christmas ornament from Las Vegas
9) Two candles from her favorite store - there's Snowman Poop and Christmas Eve.
10) mulling spices
14) Wizard of Oz lucky shoes
15) a purple glass heart filled with stars
16) a pointsettia watercolor card painted by her cousin
19) the 4 seasons in magnets (fused glass) - I love them! The trees around here look like a combination of autumn and winter right now. Silly snow coming in October.  Roll Eyes

26) a Jack-o-Lantern figurine

Thanks for the package, aheartofglass! I enjoyed getting to know you and your holiday traditions!  Smiley

I received a few days ago but have my laptop charger decided to die on me. Anywho, here it goes. . . I got a fantastic package from Arachnea!

All the goodies in some Halloween wrapping.

Fuzzy warm socks that I put on right away. They are great and I love the colors!

Ciders and hot chocolate! I can't wait to try the gingerbread hot chocolate. It sounds delicious.

A neat postcard and chipnuts. Chipnuts are actually pretty good. I wasn't sure what they would taste like but they are addicting.

Bookmarks, a cool sign with a Halloween quote and some ATCs. I've never received ATCs before and I am glad I finally have. They are super neat!

A Halloween necklace, a witch book, a super cool organizer book, a pumpkin paper lantern, and friendship bracelets.

Everything is fantastic and after the poopy few days I was having the package was just a bright light at the end of it.  Smiley Thanks Arachnea!

As children, we all live in a world of imagination, of fantasy, and for some of us that world of make-believe continues into adulthood.

Sorry to all my team members for the very late update!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

Wow great packages everyone. Cheesy I love the crochet snowflake aheartofglass received, the season magnets indigo_roses received, and Halloween quote sign karwash received!

My second package is coming along, I have two items done, but I am struggling a little with the third.

First everything together

Something edible: candy (some is already gone)
Something that smells like winter: Winter Dream tea
Something consumed in winter: hot chocolate and tea
Something that represents the holidays: Christmas boxes
Something for decorating: crochet Christmas stocking
Something local: tea card from a local tea shop
Winter essential: gray crochet wrist warmers
