Thanks to Dawn (card), Steffi (card and a wonderful bracelet - where did I put it for the picture??), Steve (for his little booklet), Sterntau (postcard) and David (I received his little comic, which I will be posting about later).
Even better: This year I received Chanukah gifts from Benjamin. Usually I´m in charge of taking care of the gifts for the family, but this year I was lucky. I received loads of great gifts from him. What a great, great surprise. Thanks!
I received The lugubrious Library by Edward Gorey,
Conversations with Picasso by Brassai,
Schande by J. M. Coetzee,
Craft Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby Into a Busines by Meg Mateo Ilasco,
365 Days: A Diary by Julie Doucet,
Promod Long Leather Gloves,
and a voucher for a movie theater and more RAM for my MacBook Pro. What really touched me (or should I say "moved me to tears") is the book "Conversations with Picasso" by Brassai. I´ve been wanting this out-of-print book for almost 10 years, but it hadn´t been affordable (around $400 used) for me. I almost forgot about it, until I received it a few days ago. Thanks, babe! This made a wonderful start into the year 2009. :)
