I'm not worthy!


Yesterday I got my Not-So-Secret-Secret-Pal Exchange package from Ms. Snark. And holey-moley, do I feel spoiled!!

Let's see... I received Sweetwater's Good Morning Gainesville Full City Roast coffee beans, Numi Toasted Rice Green Tea, locally made honey, 2 CDs filled to the brim with music (almost 14 hours!), Dagoba organic extra dark chocolate (87% cacoa. Yes, I've already busted it open), Zum Body lavender-lemon body lotion (can't wait to slather myself in it this morning), 2 bars of her own handmade soap (my house smells deeeee-vine), a skein of Colinette Jitterbug (in the stunning colourway Toscana), a skein of her very own handspun (70% merino, 30% mohair. Can't. Stop. Squeezing. Do I really deserve it??).

In my opinion, she could have stopped with half this list and I would have been in heaven, but she went one step beyond (youtube link) that totally added in the hog part. Stitch markers! Of Sheep! Three are white and one is black! Teh cuteness!

Ms. Snark, you totally rock the NSSSPE! Thanks for making my first exchange so much fun. I know I've learned a thing or two about spoiling from you. And thanks for including extra bars for Paul's Suzanne. I think she will go mad for them.

BTW - I totally think meeting up at Rhinebeck is an exxxxcellent idea. How many more days??

As I gently wade into the blogosphere, it's nice to see a familiar face. Hi! I see from your post a while back that you liked the blending workshop--yay! I didn't realize enrollment was low for that day. Maybe there's just so much going on, esp with the internet being a huge learning forum as compared to when those workshops first started up? Anyway...nice to see you and hopefully we'll cross paths again. I keep meaning to get to drunken knitters but maybe I have to accept I'm just a sober solo knitter. PS You spinning yet? ;-)

Yay! So glad that you liked everything. I hope Sophia likes what I sent her, too (parts of her box were very similar to what I sent you...). My first Secret Pal got me into the Zum products and let me tell you; they are addicting!

I had a great time with this exchange!

As for Rhinebeck? 234 days and counting...! Oh! Did I tell you that our friends whom we are staying with brew their own beer...? Just sayin'. ;-)

Found your site via Snarkland - it's amazing the connections we make! So yeah - Lorena & Co are coming up to stay with us during Rhinebeck (we're about an hour SW), and there's always room for more (if you don't mind sharing beds, hitting the sofas, or using sleeping bags). Hopefully we'll have some good beer to drink then - and if all else fails, we're within stumbling distance of three bars!
