Yay, I got another package at the end of last week!  My SC sent a very adorable bag made from a cut-off jeans leg, some folded-paper earrings, a sort-of-woven-ish (can you tell I have no idea?) bright green bracelet, and instructions on how to make funky undies from old t-shirts.

But help, dear SC, I'm confused!  You seem so different from the sender of the first 2 packages....  Was this my October package amazingly early?  Are you a selfless swap angel?  Or has it always been you and am I just that clueless?!??


So I finally started a blog....

Oh, I'm so sorry it took me a while to post this.  I got my third package from my SC, whose name I am sworn to secrecy about!  I got the most heartwarming package, I couldn't stand it!  I had had a really bad weekend, my father had a heart attack, was having surgery that very day and I was very stressed and just gnereally on edge.  I went to the door and the nicest postman in the world gave a freindly smile and a package to a tear-stained, upset me and as soon as I started opening it, I felt a little better.  I could tell from all the details that my SC really took the time to find out about me and my likes.  This package truly made my week so much easier, when I would look at my goodies, I just felt a little lighter and happier and that people in the world are good and things were going to be ok.  So, now here's what I got!
This first thing I saw when I opened the box were these amazing crochet versions of ALL of our pets.  There are two guinea pigs, Skippy and Turk, one fish, Roswita and one cat, Red.  These are just amazing.  My SC has only be crocheting a small time and she made the patterns up all by herself!  I was floored. 

After reading the letter and getting extremely happy about the pets, I noticed that what I thought was packaging was actually another surprise.  And oh what a surprise it was!  It was a surprise ball.  You unwrap the crepe paper and find tiny hidden things inside it!  And man, was thisthing packed.  About halfway through, I had so many goodies, I thought it might be near the end, but there are still so much left inside and it was rather heavy still.

Here are all the goodies that were inside.  I got tons of buttons, beads, knitting notions, origami paper (the tiniest I've ever seen!), I know I'm forgetting things, but there was just so much.  This picture doesn't show everything very well, but I hope you get the idea.

Thank you so much, Secret Craftster!  You are a sweet, wonderful person!

EDIT******Oh, and my father is doing great.  He went home thursday and is doing terrific but will have a long recovery process that I hope he rests and relaxes for and doesn't try too much too soon.

that crepe paper ball is such a cool idea! i was actually pondering making one of those in a wrapping paper form, where you find a gift beneath each layer of paper. how fun! glad it brought some joy to your sad day. i love the crochet animals too, esp the guinea pigs!!!! <3

I've sent out PM's to a few people to make sure I know who has received for September. I apologize if you've already let me know you've received, I'm doing my best to keep up on all of the information. I also wanted to thank most of you for being so friendly
 and understanding with this swap. I really appreciate it.  Don't forget to send me your DC#'s when you mail, the October send date will be here soon!

I recieved for September AND October yesterday!   Smiley

First is my September package.   It turns out that my secret craftster was Ithnkuno!  Hooray!   She's so super awesome

I got a sushi tote (I love it!   And I love the detailed stitching), a hair clip, earrings (i LOVE all the earrings that you make), ceramic made buttons, tissues, incense, and a GORGEOUS necklace.   It's going to go along perfectly with the tank that I'm knitting.   Also, Beth, your card really touched me and I thank you for your support.   It means a lot to me...

Second is my October package!   Back to playing the guessing game...

I got a knitted iPod cozy (perfect size!   It's in there in the picture.   I really needed one because my iPod has to wear a disguise at work.   We're not supposed to have them there), a chapstick holder, and some gel pens!   Thanks so much!   The yarn you used for the cozy is really neat.

Hey Girls, I just wanted to let you know that I won't be around much this weekend. I'm organizing a craft fair on Saturday that is going to take up most of my time from now until Sunday. So...don't despair if I don't reply to any PM's right away. Have a fun weekend!
