I'm going to try to post pics, but can my FOC do it in the meantime- I am going home for Easter vacation, and I'm not sure I'll have access to a scanner...

Yay! I just got home and found a cute little package from my secret FOC in my mailbox. Unfortunately, I left my camera at work (grr), so you'll have to wait until tomorrow for pictures. (Sorry!) It's two adorable pairs of earrings... one pair is pink and the other is green. Thanks! I love 'em!

All right! I'm posting 3 times in a row! Aren't I just the Attention Whore around here?

Oh, well. As promised, here is a photo of the cute earrings I got from my FOC:



This photo isn't very good, unfortunately. I have a hard time taking photos of small objects. But trust me when I tell you -- they're very cute! And note their cute little names -- the pink ones are called Pretty Princess Pink (with a backwards "k" in "Pink") and the green ones are called, "Lay with me in the grassy field green."

Thanks, FOC!

Ya'll, I'm having the worst Easter on record- sick as a dog, and I just found out I was runner-up for a huge scholarship Cry (I desperately needed the money, and was sure I was a shoe-in).  I was so unhappy, but then I came home yesterday and found a stack of packages, one of which was from my FOC!

She sent a purse and a poncho made of recycled silk sari yarn- they're luscious!  What she may not know is that I recently bought myself 2 skeins of it, with illusions of knitting up a clapotis, but I was petrified to hurt it, and had no idea of what it is supposed to look like.  The poncho has inspired me to work on my knitting, so that one day, I, too can knit something that pretty.  I can't wait to wear it to my grandma's house on Sunday!

And the note she sent made me cry!  She said that I was sweet and nice, and I so needed to hear that right now.  The scholarship that I lost was based on financial need and academics (even though I have the highest GPA and am the poorest- I hate department politics!), but I am a finalist for a smaller one based on having a "caring, vivacious spirit."  I just have to do well at my interview- wish me luck!

Anyway, that whole rant was just to say how timely and lovely my FOC is, and that I appreciate and thank her so much!  I will post pics as soon as I get back to my apartment on Sunday.

I received the most incredible package from my secret FOC friend today, too!  It's a holder for all my knitting supplies, which is exactly what I needed!  And I really love the material it's made from - fits right in with my usual hippie summer garb!  I'm going to wait to take pictures until tomorrow when the sun is shining, so that everyone can see it in its true glory - right now it's rainy and gray, and my interior lighting is quite poor...
Thank you so much, secret crafter!

(I'm also having some major swap anxiety right now, too... I don't feel worthy!!!)

HOLY SWAP PACKAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kiss Kiss

I just received the most adorable-fantastic-incredible-amazing-THOUGHTFUL-swap package!

Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!

The bloomers fit and I have them on right now.  They are the only thing I will ever wear while crafting and to bed----my two most relaxing activities.

Whoever you are you are so thoughtful and skilled crafter!  The cat is soooo cute.  I wanna take it to my "event" today for support. 

I am running outside to take pictures now!!!!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

Here is the LuLu the Crazy Kitten--as named by my secret FOC (which is made of this soft suede or something):



Here is the bloomers with piggy fabric.  I am going to get an action shot when my husband comes home from slaving away.



2 pouches--1 large and 1 small, a earring and bracelet set that is crocheted, goodies like a measuring tape, fabric, a pin (which I love!!!!  This will go on my new brown linen office coat), and hair pins (thank you! you, post stalker):


OOooo....a belt too!!! see pic above!
