Crafty Love in Route

The last few days have been uber busy, and now that I have this lull I'm taking advantage of it by doing a few of the things I really wanted to do but somehow someway slipped by me (boy are there more then a few).

One of those was sending the sweetest girl I know on the west coast a belated birthday/care package. I have the tendency to horde things for people and then send or give said horded items over all at once, but I've never gotten a complaint about this tendency yet. I included some yerba mate, an issue of Bust, Ann Taintor tissues with our mantra on them, stationary from the letter writers alliance (as a hint that I'd like a letter every once in a while), a embroidery kit I put together and tucked inside a pouch I made special for her. Oh and the "gift" that's more for me, one my old digi cameras. I really miss seeing her and I'm hoping she'll be more apt to send more pics if she has her own camera. Oh and perhaps get another person addicted to my mild obbession that is flickr. Off to work on new patch packs for the holidays and other fun stuff!

Happy Tuesday all!

XOXO-

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! I love the package and I can always tell how much thought you put into putting all the things together. I promise I will sit down and write you a letter!!! I love you so much more than words can describe. Thank you for ALWAYS being there for me, when I'm emotional, when I'm moody & trust me I know how I can be but you've been there for me no matter what for the past 14 years. I will take lots of photos and learn how to send them to you asap. I want you to know I love you and I value our friendship your MY BF. I love U Cilla!!!
