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!


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".)

OMG I am so spoiled!

I finally got to the P.O. to pick up a box my secret sistah had sent before my daughter hurt her knee (which kept us both in the house for 10 days!) and WOW!

I could smell yummy roses the moment I had the box in my hands but I never expected all of this!

I've also never seen an 'eternity scarf' before but I can't wait to play with it and try all the different ways of wearing it!

My sis sent me the coolest daily planner (which I really need!) a package of pens (My daughter begged for the purple one so I had to share lol the wide grips are great for my hands, you're so thoughtful!) the rose scented candles (so many!) and the prettiest potpourri that I have ever seen and smelled! Also she sent sachets and wonderful footsie care items (which I also really can use) thank you so much...I can't imagine that you're sending me anything else, you've sent so much and I love all of it.

Thank you for really coming through and making this such a special experience for me Sistah! I have you figured out (I'm 99 percent sure :) and I am so lucky to have had you for my sistah.

Happy Birthday Lori!

Reveal Package on it's Way!!

I heard from my Sevret Sistah two days ago, my reveal package is on it's way and should be here by Tuesday or Wednesday! Yippee! My poor mail lady Martha-I will be stalking her starting Tuesday. She already *hates* coming here cause I either have a package she needs to drop off or always have something in the mailbox waiting for her to take with her. Sometimes it has postage and other times just some cash tossed in the box and she has to take it in the post office and get the receipt and include the change or, as sometimes happens, the bill for the balance owed. Martha will be happy when the swaps are over that's for sure. Poor Martha!

Reveal Package!!!

I got my reveal package!!! It came in the mail yesterday but because of my work schedule the pst few days I only just opened it tonight! Thank you so so much Kari!! Here is what I got....a ton of goodies!

A ton of wonderful, yummy yarn, a Lavender Reed Diffuser, and smell goodies! Thank you so much Sistah for your conversation and encouragement through emails and ecards, and thank you for the great gifts. And all while you are having it rough yourself. I really appreciate everything. It was great talking with you!


I got a little package in the mail from my Secret Sistah the day before yesterday!

She got me a clover cutter! Eeeeeeee! I am so making a beaded necklace to hang it on this weekend. Cute Christmas beads with my name on the silver charm and some Burt's Bees champagne colored lipbalm! Thank you dear Sistah, I love everything! :)

Turning Blue, Berry Blue!

Fellow Secret Sistah, Jessi, did a totally cool thing and sent me a package stuffed with packets of Berry Blue Kool-Aid and a funny get well card. You really made me feel better since today was a Jonah day for me! I think I've got enough Berry Blue Kool-Aid to keep me happy for the rest of the year!

And, Secret Sistah Kari also sent me a package of the blue stuff, which I didn't forget! (I'm such a louse about posting my thank-yous.) Kari, you've been great, and I wish you luck in your move and in your new home!

Plus, Sistah Rowan also sent me some of the blue, and I didn't post a thank you. (Shame on me!) But she knows in my heart how much I love her, right my bosom friend?

All of you have been as good as my family (and that is a compliment now)and even better! I'm glad to be part of this Secret Sistah-hood!

(Oh, and if you feel like sending me more Berry Blue Kool-Aid to get on my good side, go ahead! I can't have enough of the stuff!)

OK Well we all knew that my lovely and generous Secret Sister was the lovely and talented Deneen, but what you may not know is she totally rocks.
She's been a great secret sister and I've totally enjoyed myself being spoiled.
I got my "reveal" package today... and all I can say is omg Thank you so much Deneen!!! It all is wonderful!!!
Now, I have still been up since 2 am, I tried to take a nap with the boy but the phone wouldn't shut up, then the cat sat on my head etc so I finally just gave up... so I am kinda loopy.

Hambut looks on as if I am nuts...

OPENED! oooooooooooooohs and ahhhhhhhhhs insued:

Yummy yarns... a pattern and some beautiful green 100% silk (my first ever)and a D hook, some handspun cotton and lurex (my first ever handspun yarn) (omg am i a yarn hick or what?)
Some tea (which is ALWAYS greeted with great happiness) a cute little book about tea.
A wire bracelet kit that I can't wait to dive into!

Deneen, thank you so much, there aren't enough words right now in my mind to thank you enough.

Gift Box Received

Sometime during my hospital stay a box arrived for me from my secret sistah (whom i still have no clue to who she is!). Inside was a velvety soft scarf, two balls of Lustersheen (ecru), some incredible smelling sandlwood incense, a size G Clover Soft Touch hook (completing my set!), and baggie filled with Rolos!

I'll post a picture soon of the booty, but don't know where the digital camera is!

Thank you, Secret Sistah for such a great box of goodies!

pictures at last

my apologies to my sis that it took so long for me to get these posted! these are the wonderful goodies in my last package...the buttons on the crocheted holders sparkle so much, i just love em! thanks again super sistah!



With all that has been going on recently I totally spaced my secret sistah (ok she isn't so secret anymore lol) telling me she'd sent off a package.
It arrived today and was it ever a cool package!
Two skiens of the most beautiful yarn... Deneen I said on my blog I actually had a small scrap ball of that in a ebay box once and fell in love with it not even knowing what it was. It's so beautiful... now what to make from it...
and some wonderful incense with a cool tiny burner.

Thank you ever so much. It was a great pick me up.

I Got A Box

hey every one !!

I got a box!! and it wasnt for the auction.. it was for me!! me!! me!!

Thanks Secret Sistah.. for the olive oil lotion in lemongrass and sage.. the trivet made of wine corks.. the yarn.. the angel..the cross stitched wall hanging and the tea.. (we jsut wont mention the rather large bar of belgian Chocolate that didnt make the pic.. its in the fridge firming up ~ i swear i didnt eat the whole thing already !!~ )

I messed up!

Damn, I messed up. I used my super secret email account, stupid euphemisms I don't usually use, etc and then I send my sister an email and do what, sign my name! I saw it right after I hit send and was mortified. I suck big time! Sorry I ruined it sis, although you probably knew it was me anyway.
