The Best Secret Pal!

Lookie what came in the mail for me!

The packaging was so pretty! So pink and springy! Being January in Chicagoland, I appreciate every bit of spring I can find!

Then I opened it! WOW! Thank you so much Valerie for everything. You have been a great secret pal!
Can you all see everything fun that Valerie sent? (Sorry for the aweful photography!) She sent my kids some adorable little animal buttons. (They send lots of thanks and I had to fight with them to leave them on the cardboard long enough to take the picture!) and some fun soaps for their bathroom. (Madison claimed the flower one right away!) And for me some fabulous Fleece artist sock yarn in an absolutely wonderful colorway, the Diamond Fantasy Shawl pattern and some gorgeous painted knitting needles. (I have decided I need a collection of hand painted needles and spindles! These are so pretty. I am so sorry my horrible picture taking skills cut off the pretty painting) And for the non-knitting goodies. I found a cute little picture frame with spaces for three pictures...(Hmmm...three kids....three soaps...three pictures...a slew of cute pins....Valerie did her homework!) And Yummy dark chocolate truffles! Hubby and I already dipped into these with our Merlot! (Dark Chocolate must accompany a good merlot in this house.) Thanks again Valerie!

Oh, looking at that is making me feel like a bad secret pal. I promise I'll do better next month. (By the way I mailed your pacage today).

Your Handspun Secret Pal

I'm so glad you liked everything! By the way, the yarn is to make the shawl if you want to. You can see it made by the Yarn Harlot with the exact same yarn if you google it.

An invitation because I love your blog and I would love to learn more about you:

Write yourself a manifesto. Make it specific (knitting or parenting or music) or general (like mine) So that I can read it.
