I get to start! I received a wonderful package from Mamaneedles over the weekend!

First off, this gorgeous woven wall hanging. It's soooo soft!



Next, the best set of mala-style bracelets. The charms are so perfect, Maman. I'm actually wearing these today.



Stacked:



And a mala necklace to go with them!



She also sent not one, but TWO yoga shirts. I LOVE this first one. So clever of you to make it "Omie," Maman!



And detail on the second shirt (my full-length shot was blurry for some reason):



A SKIRT! Embellished with a cool design (is this bleach-dyed, Maman?):



Detail close up:



A GORGEOUS watercolor hamsa painting:



Some calendula seeds and a cute little pot:



And last, but certainly not least, two items from her daughter. A yogi pipe cleaner sculpture that looks just like me! Wink:



And a lovely meditative drawing. I'm hanging this at work where I have a mini art gallery of kiddo art:



Thank you so much, Maman. Everything is perfect and wonderful. I'll get your package in the mail tomorrow!

Namaste!

I realize I've not only forgot an item, I also omited to include a note!!! >__<

The random pencil stroke on the chakra shirt is all Victor's fault. He was going to re-design the whole thing!

The skirt is a flower of life gone wrong! ahah! I had ink that was the same colors as the embelishment on the skirt Smiley

The driftwood on which the weaving is mounted is from my very spécial stash from our ancient place on a beach  on Saint-Laurent River.

I'm glad you like everything!! It's funny that the pipe-cleaner girl looks like you! I'll tell my daugther Cheesy

Speaking of sweet!  Check out this AMAZING package I received from smileyyogini

First of all, she totally stalked my pinterest, because this fabric she used for this awesome yoga bag is TOTALLY me!  


(and is that button handmade?)  I love it!

She also made me a sweet little bag filled with beautiful handpainted stones:

And look at these beautiful watercolored cards:


And some high-quality soap + hand lotion in my favorite scents: rose and lavender.



Annnnnnnnd!!!!  She lovingly made this white, cotton hat.  I told her that I am getting into Kundalini Yoga and they are all about white head-coverings (made from natural materials.)

(I think I look like a real yogi)

Thank you.  Thank you smileyyogini!  I love it all!

Ayanared that hat is beautiful on you! Yup...white natural fibered hats. Kundalini all the way. I went with cotton...its about to be warm out. Cheesy And Im glad you like the fabric. I hunted it down after seeing your pinterest. Smiley It was so much fun getting to know you.

She sent me flameless candles, a white candle, a yoga mat sling  that she crocheted, a pretty black and white decoration for my meditation alter. I love it! And the incense smells so nice!



and this lovely mandala wall hanging. I love hoop art. Its just perfect. So colorful and well stitched. Thank you!



I love the awesome yin/yang pillow! Its adorable. Thank you!

Hey! First thanks a lot girls for this totally awesome no-problem flake-free swap!!! Woohoo!

Second... That chakra flag is so pretty!!

And that fabric for the yoga bag is pretty cool too Smiley

And I love the hoop! So many pretty colors! Cheesy

The only package left to show is the one I received, which is full of tie-dye-ny goodness! but my camera is kind of dead so I asked abby to show you, if she pleases. Still, I'm wearing the Buddha necklace all day long Cheesy

Awesome stuff ladies!! Love it all.

Unfortunately I was not as diligent as I should have been with taking pics of my package for Maman...here's what I do have...

A group shot of sorts:



You can see lots of tie-dye, the Buddha necklace, and a bit of the yoga belt I made.

I made Maman tie-dye leggings like these (but these are MINE Grin):



With a lotus stamp on the upper left corner...similar to this one that's on the back of her daughter's tie-dye:



And this one that's on a lavender sachet I also sent:



Here's another close-up shot of one of the tie-dyes:



And a little wood-burned sign (the only pic I have of it is among my messy craft space!):



I also sent a hand-dyed fat quarter in reds and oranges, but I did't get a pic of that...

Glad you liked it Maman! Sorry I didn't take pre-send pics! Hope you'll post some awesome action shots when you can!! Wink

I'm very sorry for taking sooooooooooo long. I finally manage to make the camera work. The auto-focus is dead and the vision thing is all weird and makes a tic-tac sound but I managed to take some decent clear shot of all that tie-dye-ny goodness!!!


My awesome green pants!


Shirt for my girl (she adores it!)


Shirt for my boy (a tad too big, but hey, it's spidey-colored!)


My shirt!!


And I had to picture that awesome buddha necklace with my current favorite ring, cuz they are a perfect match!! I worn those all week Smiley

Thank you so much Abbee! We always love what you send us Cheesy

(the sachet was nowhere to be found. I guess it's now a barbie pillow.)
