What Dragon Are You?

I am an Aurora Dragon!
Hey, I took the online Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am an Aurora Dragon on the inside.
In the war between good and evil, an Aurora Dragon tends to walk the fine line of Neutrality....When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon is a risk taker and answers to no one....As far as magical tendancies, Your inner dragon has the ability to conquer the world of magic, but it will not be easy....During combat situations, a true Aurora Dragon prefers to defeat opponents by the use of spells and other tactics....The Aurora Dragon likes cool air and wide open spaces. It comes out at twilight and shies away from direct sunlight. The Aurora Dragon is independent and opinionated with a firm grasp on its desires. They love adventure and will try most anything once.'The Aurora Dragon appears to be night blue, but something about it's scales (or perhaps it's magical nature) creates a multicolor holographic effect around its body, almost as though it is constantly flying through an ever changing cloud of color.'Highly intelligent, The Aurora Dragon likes games of mental challenge and tends to finish in the winners bracket. They are perceptive and intuitive but tend to hold grudges. Very verbal--not a quiet or shy dragon, the Aurora Dragon makes friends easily. It is with great difficulty that The Aurora Dragon puts aside any injustice it has ever received--whether real or imagined. The Aurora Dragon loves freedom and would wither if put in constraints.'This Dragons favorite elements are: Opals, Wind, and Free Spirits

My secret pal 7 gift!!!!!

She likes me, she really likes me!
On the couch, Vogues' winter issue and a pretty journal.

On the box we have, from L-R:
a pretty blue and white soap that smells really fresh
two skeins of bernat sox in the Jazz colorway
a pretty red soap that smells nice and earthy

In our imaginations we have six pretty beaded stitch markers!

YAY for stitch markers! I'd show them to you but all of them are in use (it's a lace pattern) and it's a gift for someone who may read this blog. I really wish I had restrained myself, but they were pretty and I was having issues with the repeat. I'm so sorry Secret Pal. I will post a picture of them when I'm finished with the project. They were her first stitch markers that she made with her own hands, just for me! I'm so touched! *sniffle* She also made the pretty soaps (one of which has been used and replaced in it's baggie for the photo shoot) When I asked where she found the soaps, she replied and told me that she has her own company and makes soaps, bath, and skin care products. I'm going to have to scope it all out when I find out who she is!

I do really like everything, it's all lovely. While I was opening the gift, my daughter, ever the girly girl, saw the yarn and squealed look mommy, your friend sent ME something! She's been asking for a shawl of her own, the bernat is machine washable and probably fairly durable, and there is 400 yards of it, so I'm thinking it's a match.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate the thought and effort that you went to to pick such wonderful and generous gifts. I look forward to meeting you!

PS, I do spin.

Fly by posting

Just a quick note before school to let ya'll know that I'm being a bad blogger and secret pal. I received two very nice boxes last week, and intended to post about them this weekend. Now I'm intending to post about them tomorrow. I hope. But, I wanted to let me SP7 spoiler know the box arrived and was much appreciated, thank you!
