First off I need to publicly apologize that this has taken me so long to do - I'm sorry Christy! I got the stuff on October 22nd and it has taken me this long to post about it - bad Brooke, very bad Brooke!!

Ok, now on to the good stuff! Christy from Kronicles of a Konader offered to pick me up a couple bottles of China Glaze Matte Magic since my Sally's hadn't put any out. (IF you want to find out more about Christy click here) When the shipment came my jaw almost hit the floor - it was huge! I thought boy, how much bubble wrap did she use for two little ol' bottles of nail polish?? Take a look, I even put a bottle of polish next to the box to show size accuracy:

When I opened it up I saw a ton of little individually wrapped gifts and a two page hand written note!! What did the note contain you say? Well nothing much - just the secret to life!!! She color coded the gifts!! All the stuff wrapped in Pink was for Dinky, Green for Little and Yellow for me. She even included a ton of candy for Ricco - so thoughtful I tell ya!

First up Dinky's Haul:

Pretend she is enjoying some treats Christy sent here, since I forgot to get a pic of those!!

Yes, she got her a new coat!! The right size and everything :)

Ricco's Haul:

Candy galore!! Little was upset that Ricco got all the candy, lol!

My goods:

There were actually three bottle of this she sent to me, and under neath you can see the letter she sent me.

The awesome glitter I used to make Fire Starter. For those of you who wondered where the glitter came from, it came from Michael's, the arts and crafts store.

Little's Haul:

Christy is just about the sweetest! What a wonderful friend. Love Dinky's new coat. She looks really fashionable in it. Little is getting more and more handsome. I can see that he's getting older and taller than the first pictures I saw. How adorable is he.
