Package received and sent

A few days ago, I received a really nice kit from Helga Ze Horrid, when I opened it, I found this big bag filled with goodies:

In the kit were tons of great things:
  • a kit to crochet a cute dragon (pattern, 2 colors of cotton yarn, crochet hook)
  • candy and chocolate
  • handknit ornaments
  • a Ravenclaw bookscarf
  • a small project bag with a dragon
  • a basilisk tooth to wear as a pendant
  • stickers
  • tattoos
  • a garden gnome to water my plants
  • colored felt
  • a small bag with stickers, tattoos, candy and a toy for my son

He loved his gifts as much as I loved mine, he immediately wanted one of the tattoos and held it proudly into the camera for you all to see:

Thanks, Helga, that really was a great kit and it was nice to get to know you a bit through this swap. And sorry that it took me so long to post about this, but my computer was not behaving at all

still waiting

I know, I said last week that my package was on it's way, but I read just before I wanted to send my owl that Lavender moved. And as I don't want her kit to get lost, it is waiting here for her to confirm her address. I'm not sure whether I have her old address or the new one.

Owl on it's way

I know, I have been terribly quiet this term, but I have packed the kit for Lavender and send an owl to her today. Hopefully it will arrive soon.

I wanted to add so many more things, but somehow I always went over the budget with them so I had to limit myself. But I'm sure she will like it as I picked up some hints she dropped on her blog. Now back to my busy life and my son - when kindergarten has vacation, he keeps me really busy
