You really know how to spoil a gal!

The day was on target to be a real crummy one - a blamer, whining, cry baby client made me want to scream. I do not deal well with criminal offenders who blame me for their problems - I don't even get it, ugh. Anyways - I came home to a great mail day - I mean awesome!

I am in the Punk Rock Gift Exchange and today I found out my partner is Lindsay of Storm Moon Knits. She put together the most awesome package - included was some gorgeous yarn from an indie dyer Sanguine Gryphon.

Also some cool stitch markers made by Lindsay herself - she has her own shop here. Look at this pretty Crocodile Rock yarn. yum!

But wait, that's not all - she also sent me a book I have been pining for, yummy gummies - sour and not, (the sour patch kids are already half gone between me and my girls) and some gorgeous notecards.

I'm breathless after all of those goodies - thank you Lindsay!! And in case my international prge pal - who I don't think has gotten my package yet - wants to play the contest...the song I'm thinking of today is Red Barchetta by Rush. Not punk - but kind of hard rock.

I also got another super surprise - but more on that later, I need time to admire my spoils, what a great day! Thank you!

Oh I personally would have ripped into that bag of gummy bears and inhaled all of them!

I can't wait to hear what you think of that book! It's on my wish list at the moment too.

What a great "pick-me-up" treat! :) It's great when those little (or not so little!) gifts come on stressful days. :)
