Yarn and gift cards!

I received a couple awesome boxes in the mail the other day but waited until today to open them up.  See, a week or so ago I discovered Ravelry.  Have you been there?  It is a fantastic community that is completely dedicated to knitting and crochet.  One of the groups that I located is called "Yarnstormers".  Basically people donate their unwanted yarn & boxes are put together and sent out to recipients.  Normally you need to be nominated by someone, but charities can also request a box.  That is exactly what I did for Central Ohio Binky Patrol and here is the box I recieved a few days ago.

I knew my parents were coming up soon (they are here now for two weeks and it's awesome!) so I decided to nominate her for a yarnstorming.  Her box arrived the same day as mine but I didn't open them until yesterday so we could enjoy them together.  She was so excited!  There are lots of fun & different yarns!!  So, here are the contents from her box.

Also, yesterday I received a gift card in the mail from Staples.  I'm excited because now I can get some office supplies to help me run Central Ohio Binky Patrol better!  Everyone has been so generous and I feel very blessed!!
