Hi everyone.  I love my gifts and I had a wonderful birthday, but if you could spare some positive thoughts/prayers my way I would appreciate it.  One of my dogs died from being hit by a car and our little kitten was killed by a really big dog that is not ours.  Also my dh is probably losing his job.  Anyway, I am behind on one of my claims and I probably won't be able to make anymore claims.  I am so thankful for craftster and the people on hear to bring some happiness even in hard times!

I got A TON of yarn from calluna earlier this week.  I feel so spoiled!!!

But if that wasn't enough, calluna also sent me an awesome hoop inspired by UP!  I LOVE it!!! Its so cute and perfect!!!

If you look, you can see Dugs nose in the corner, heehee.  I showed my son and immediately he knew what it was!!

Thanks so much calluna!!!


I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!

The yarn is beautiful but I love the up hoop.  Very nicely done.

The squirrel I found on this massive blog (in French) of hundreds of image charts: http://un-jour-une-grille.over-blog.com

Finally I can post pics of my package from mom2em! First there was a fat stack of handmade greeting cards with envelopes:

I love that they're all different so I don't feel like I'm repeating myself when I send things.  Smiley And I had practically run out of cards to send so this will help me out a lot!

Then in addition to all these cards, she claimed me for a survival-kit-in-a-tin, which was decorated with cute fabric and a bright butterfly:

What's inside? A sewing kit!

I was definitely lacking a sewing kit; my supplies aren't organized in one convenient place like this, so I'm glad to have such a good portable kit.

Many thanks, mom2em!  Kiss

Beautiful handspun yarns arrived Friday, from calluna!

To the left, 292 yards of 100% wool.  It's handdyed by Craftster member freestyle.  To the right, a blend of alpaca, angelina, bamboo, and mystery wool.  There are beads and thread added in too. 

Thanks so much calluna, I love them!  =)

^ You can see my previous lack of proper greeting cards in that picture.  Cheesy

Such beautiful hair accessories arrived for me from Avesthel! I took a picture of the lovely packaging before I opened it because I wouldn't be able to reassemble it so nicely.  Smiley

Then inside...

I'm in awe, they're just so beautiful. I look too frumpy to show an action shot today, but the button-covered piece is a clip underneath, that's right off of my Pinterest interests.  Smiley I've never seen decorated hairpins like the pearl ones; they're going to be so pretty when I pull my appearance together for a special occasion. I'm looking forward to using all of these pretties!

Thank you!!!

Isn't he awesome?  So many little details!  Thanks so much, he's really great!

Such nice things everyone is getting for their birthday!   Smiley   I really like the Up hoop, the greeting cards, the handspun and that mario is so detailed!   Smiley

Calluna, you are very welcome for the hair pretties!   Cheesy  I had a lot of fun with all the different types and was going for casual and dressed up versions of it so you'd always have something to wear.   Smiley   I only discovered the hairpins when looking for types of pearl hair accessories I could make for you.  They are really neat in that they add a little pearl in your hair wherever you need one.  Or you can use them to hold up a bun and have little pearls decorating the bun.   Smiley   So glad you liked your presents!   Smiley

And another awesome package to share...I have been so spoiled by swappers this month...dreadlocklove made me reusable fabric twist-ties, a beaded ohm pendant for diffusing essential oils (finally a chance to use my ylang ylang!), and also sent me two skeins of sari silk yarn! My picture isn't the best...

Here is a close-up of the beautiful pendant:

Thank you so much; it will all be used and loved dearly!

A couple of you have socks on your wishlists, and I apologize that I can't claim you for them...Though I did get a sock loom this year and learned how to knit socks, technically, I have not learned how to get them to be the size I intend for them to be unless I have the actual foot there to measure. And even then I have to completely unravel and start over at least 5 times! So this year, at least, I regret that I can't use this sock loom to grant a birthday wish.  Embarrassed
I'm waiting on some supplies I ordered to arrive; once they do I will put in one more claim!
