So many packages!

I am SO behind on my blogging! I slacked for a few days, then my Mom has been in town for the past week while Chad is on his annual Canada Fishing Trip with his college buddies (he comes home tomorrow, yay!!!).

SO....I thought I would share all the fun stuff I've been getting in the mail. First of all, the WAY CUTE skeleton and goodies I got from winning BonnieRose's RAK Contest on her blog. A couple days before that, I received a cute Fall Card from her, too! Cards from her always put a smile on my face!

I ordered a couple more items for my Belly Dancing costume. Everyone raved about my skirt in class last week. I wanted to get some nice jewelry to go with it...I can't believe the awesome prices you can find on Ebay! This stuff is new, too! A headpiece and ring/bracelet cuffs. I got them from two different stores, and they match perfectly. We are also starting to learn Zils (finger cymbals) in a couple weeks, so I am REALLY excited about that! I'm getting my set in class tomorrow.

I also got my second package from my Swap Sister for the Sassy Secret Sisters swap on 2Peas. I found out she is the fab Ms. Kiki! Awesome stuff. HS fuzzy rub-ons, chenille rick rack, Basic Grey monograms, chipboard flowers, a TOTALLY cute Altered 'P'. I was especially excited about the Petaloo Flowers. I've had my eye on those! I'll have to come up with something pretty cool to use them on.

A nice pile of paper posies for the Flower Swap I'm doing with my local scrap group. I'm really looking forward to getting all those packages of different flowers! I decided to go unconventional with black. I thought they were pretty cool.

Last but not least...lots of lovely Alphas. All my favorites. I just LOVE HS chipboard alphas, and they are such a great value! Also some MM velvet alpha sticker in colors I didn't have, and some small HS mailbox letters! You can never have too many alphas, and I use the HECK out of them!

Before Chad went out of town, we also got the FABULOUS 85mm f1.8 lens for the camera. I am totally loving this lens! I also scored a Black Quickutz Squeeze (that comes with the Metro alpha) for $45 on when they were having their big 50% Off Quickutz sale last week!

I still have 3 layouts that I have to photograph and post...another thing I've slacked on. I'll probably do that on Friday. Have a great day!
