More Birthday Stash

I received 2 more cards and 1 package today. The first card is from Pam and she included DMC 208 & DMC 210.

And I got this gift from Melinda. Now I know why she asked me if I prefered silver or gold on my Christmas tree. Melinda sent me a pack of gold perforated paper that has two 9 x 12 sheets and one of the Christmas ornament books from my wish list - Stained Glass Ornaments I from Sekas & Co. Then when I opened her card I found a really cute fob. Here's a picture of everything.
And here's a picture of just the fob.

I also got a birthday card from my brother Larry and his wife Robyn. I must say I pretty darn excited when M told me it was here. I got telephone calls from 2 of the kids and emails from one sister and another brother, but this is the only card I received from a family member. M didn't even get me a card this year.

Now this next chart isn't a birthday present; it's a gift from a really nice woman I met face-to-face for the first time last month at my retreat - Debra S. She found out I wanted this chart, but the only shop that had a copy had just sold their last one. She ordered one and had it shipped to me. You can't get any nicer than that!

Well, that's it for birthday packages; there are still a few cards that should be on their way though. Once again I have to say how blessed I was with everything that was sent to me. This is my first birthday group where we sent presents instead of a couple skeins of floss and I really appreciate how the members put a lot of thought into getting just the right gift for each other.
Thank you everyone.
