Taste of Michigan Reveal


What a wonderful reveal package! Thanks Natalie. I received a delicious tin on Morley's buttery Almond Pecan-dy Crunch popcorn, which didn't make it to the photo, that tin is EMPTY! Also included was some fabulous yarn, the white was recylcled yarn and it is soo soft, the red yarn is JoAnn Marel yarn, I've never tried this yarn, but I'm eager to try it. Also included was a Clover Soft Touch Crochet Hook and Sanders dessert topping in Milk Chocolate fudge and Butterscotch Caramel. Thanks so much Natalie for being the best secret sistah ever, I really enjoyed everything you selected for me and appreciate your generosity.

Reveal

I have the best Sistah ever. EVER y'all.

Jessi was so awesome to me and as an added bonus I made a wonderful new friend in the process! :)

Her reveal package arrived in the mail today, which was a plesant surprise. Actually, there was one of those dreaded pink "Hey, why aren't you ever home to get your mail" slips in the box but when I read it it said "Package behind planter next to steps" and I did a little happy dance right there on the sidewalk.

Inside...oh man. Well, you can look because I'm still freaking out from happiness over it all.








YES. That is a yarn winder. And it belongs to me! *happy dance* I immediately had to try it out with some of the wool I dyed, it works like a dream.

She also send rainbow boucle for a shawl I want to make, some Lion Brand homespun in a color I can't get around here and a gorgeous bead decorated hook that I can't wait to start using. She sent a bag of scraps for my monster afghan project as well, but those didn't make it into the photo as I have already put them in my workbasket. Exactly what I need for the project though!

Thank you Jessi, you were such an awesome Sistah! :)

Thank You So Much!

This post is to Donna, who starred in and played the role of my Secret Sistah in this edition of "Secret Sistah". She sent so much stuff that I kept pulling stuff out of the box wondering when is it going to end? I still think there is something more inside, but the cats determined for me that there was a bottom. Mr. Doo really liked the box, and one of the kittens was licking it. How weird!

Anyhow, my lazy butt has not gotten around to taking pictures, which is why I've not posted it arrived yesterday. But I assure you, that I will because, well, it is just so damn impressive!

I can tell you that the greenish softy yarn, when my Pooky spied it, he wanted to claim it for making socks! I said he could have it as I think it would make a wonderful pair. I drooled over all of the tea, and I can never have too many incense burners!

It is all so wonderful that I will HAVE to get motivated and show-off the bootey that I got!

THANK YOU SO MUCH, DONNA! I feel very, merrily, and delightfully spoiled!

As promised, pictures of the goodies!

Reveal!

I got my final package! My awesome sister is Regina! See this post to find out what was in my latest package. :))

(I'll let Regina decide whether to tell you about when she was "revealed".)
