Contest Gifts and other Goodies!!
The Post Woman came bearing gifts today!!! (Please disregard the book and jacket seen lying on the treadmill.....of COURSE I use my treadmill for walking!) LOL!!
FIRST package: From Lisa: Knitting By The Sea
I was one of the winners in a blog contest she was having!! It was a GREAT idea for a contest!! Participants were asked to tell the "craziest" thing they ever did....which made me realize that at forty-something-ish....I have lived a pretty quiet life....hmmm...may need to rethink things before I start on the 50-something-ish age bracket!! Thankfully the contest was a random drawing!! LOL!!
It started off with this pretty pink paper and a card which judging by the excellent quality and time that obviously went into making such a beautiful card.....was made by hand!!!
Beneath the Pink were Four Individually Wrapped Gifts (which I would have photographed but in my excitement managed to tear all the paper but one!)....
Oh..OH...OOOOHHHHHH!!! Opal sock yarn... I have NEVER had Opal sock yarn and I absolutely can NOT wait to get started knitting!!!! The colors are "MY" colors too!!!! I just can't tell you how absolutely tickled I am with this yarn....and if THAT wasn't enough.....there were Sticky Pads....another weird coincidence??? I use sticky notes for EVERYTHING.....I LOVE them....for everything....and ALWAYS the decorative ones!! But this is getting downright freaky....because I have been meaning to pick up the Chibi's but the last couple of times I have looked for them the LYS was out!!!!
AND.....to quote my nephew when he was a little boy...."Chocolate is my life"!!!! LOL!!! If you only KNEW what a chocoholic I am....but wait....maybe you did know since you knew everything else?????? LOL!!!
Considering Max's latest episode with the chocolate bunny it is deemed not safe to have chocolate around....anywhere.....so I should eat this chocolate....now....as in RIGHT NOW for lunch!!!! Besides.....chocolate is good for you....no REALLY....the more the better!!!!!!YUMMMMMM!!!!!!!!
Lisa, I absolutely can not thank you enough for such a gracious, exciting gift!! When your blog announced I had won sock yarn I had no idea I would receive so many wonderful gifts.....and everything is exactly what I have been wanting!!!! Many, Many THANKS!!!!
Second Package: Computer part for my hubby......BORING.....!!!!!
Third Package: KnitPicks!!
I have been wanting this book......best of all, purchased from Amazon, used, EXCELLENT condition .....and CHEAP!!! :)
I guess I better check the mailbox now......after all this goodness, I'm sure there is a box full of bills waiting to be picked up!
Ahhhhhh.......back to reality!!!
