My SP 7 is the Bestest!
Holy crap did my SP ever spoil me with this first package. It was jam-packed full of fun stuff! I just kept pulling stuff out of it, like a car full of clowns. Crazy. The first thing I noticed was how great the package smelled when I opened it. Turns out it was these. How funny is that? "Love Towels" - it reminds me of the novelty baptismal soap I got a friend that said "wash your sins away!" and what not. Hi-larious. Click on the pic and view a larger size to read all the fun detail on the package. I just look at the package and it cracks me up. Then, I found something that reminds me of one of my favorite fellow bloggers, Rain, tattoo tape with frogs all over it! I have no idea if you are actually supposed to rub it on your skin for a temporary tattoo or if it's more like packaging tape, but it's cute so I don't care! Hee hee! I then found this lil' guy wrapped up in plastic bag. Isn't he cute?! He's meant to hang from a planter. I'll have to bring him outside to the patio, I have some hanging plants out there in a severe shortage of turtle related decoration. And then I found this smack dab in the middle of the package. I set it down to take a picture of it and just as I snapped the pic, Ripple jumped up on the futon and sniffed at it. I call it a lucky shot. How cool is this? It's a Crystal meant for my garden (or where-ever I please. But I think the garden is a great spot for it.) I'm not sure if it's going to get my Chakras in order or even if I spelled "chakras" right but I think they need organizing. So hopefully this crystal will help. I'm still in pain from my idiotic boating mis-adventure. (Yes, I dove into 2 feet of water and punched myself in the nose. My arm hurts, my back hurts, and my nose is slightly swollen and bruised. I'm a clutzy idiot. I thought it was deeper I swear!) ANYWAY, where was I? Oh, the next thing I managed to squeeze out of the tightly packed box, was an assortment of goodies. Namely a Vermont Country Blend of Coffee (Green Mountain is the best!) a Lilac Bath Bomb (Lilac is my most favoritest flower!) and some toys for the fuzzbutts. Shortly after this pic Ripple was playing his own version of the World Cup. Then the knitting fun commenced. Fun Fur Flip-Flops my SP created herself! A cute bumble bee tape measure, a Kacha-Kacha (oh how I love Kacha-Kachas - let me count the ways...) the Knitter's Guide to Yarn Requirements, Cherry Tree Hill Bulky Cotton Chenille and Karaoke (a wool/soy silk blend - who knew? I had no clue there was soy silk in it!) Yes, pr0n will follow shortly in the usual full sized manner. I'm here for you, the yarn oglers. Of course I had to right away try on the flip-flops. Unfortunately, my giant hooves didn't quite fit. But I have a very dear friend that I think will love these! And my SP knows my aversion to Fun Fur, but yes, I did appreciate the creativity she had with using it! My SP is very talented. Take a closer look at the bumble bee tape measure, this thing is too freakin' cute for words. You pull on it's stinger to reveal the tape. Ok, time for yarn pr0n. Lemme tell ya, this Cherry Tree Hill Bulky Cotton Chenille is so soft. Oh, and the colors! The colors! My SP says that she made a large-needle in the round summer bag with it. I think that's a great idea. Any clues on where to find a pattern? Or one I can adapt? She also sent me two balls of SWTC Karaoke. Much to my surprise, this stuff is 50% Wool and 50% Soy Silk. I had no clue! It is soooooo soft. And the colors are gorgeous and bright! I know exactly what to make with them too. The Hurry-Up-Spring Armwarmers from SnB Nation. I've been wanting to make them, and think this yarn is perfect for them! I could be wrong, there could be another perfect project for them. Any suggestions? I've seen the Karaoke at Charlotte Yarn, but for some reason, never bought it. If I had just picked it up and felt it, it would have been a done deal. Thank you, SP! I can't wait to work with it! As I was putting all my presents back in the box for temporary storage, I came across one more little surprise. I nearly missed it, being wrapped in tissue paper. One can never have too many turtles. That's just my opinion though. Heh. This post literally took me all morning to compose. There was so much stuff to show off! Thank you, SP! You are the best!
