What I Won! Thanks Red Heart!

Hello Readers,

     I don't usually do 2 posts in a day but this was too good not share what I got in the mail today. Some of you may remember awhile back I had entered into a contest with Red Heart Yarn via of Facebook to complete in winning a Red Heart Prize Pack! I was very close for so long in the running. Many of my friends and family voted and pushed for voting for me. And for that I would like to give the biggest Thanks for it. Here is the original post I put on my blog for it.
I did not win but they decided to make honorary runner up prize packs to be sent out! I was so excited to hear of this news!

     So today I recieved this in the mail:

     I couldn't wait to open this box but the UPS driver dropped it off right before I had to leave to pick up my oldest son for school... so it had to wait! UGGG! I've been waiting.. couldn't believe that it was finally here! 

So I came straight in to find the box and was like a gitty little girl on Christmas day awaiting to open her present! Got the scissors out & opened the box.
I Found:

     It was so stuffed pack I sat on the floor pulled this huge tote bag out! Yippee I love the heavy duty of this bag and that it fits so much I can just imagine my self toting around a big afghan I'm working on now wherever I go. 
See Below:
Its as big as the box but wait till you find out what's inside this tote bag....oooh its good!
Here's the grand picture that would tickle any yarn lovers heart!!!!
