    So, I started my pin collecting with Hard Rock pins. There was a wonderful woman back home in Hawaii who helped guide me in the hobby after I jumped in feet first (read: spent too much on pins) and taught me about what to collect, to narrow my search from "everything I could get my hands on" to more specific themes, and to not go too overboard. I've always joked that she was my pin godmother.

    Well, I met up with her again on my most recent trip home and we sat and talked for a couple of hours. During that time, she learned I collect Disney pins. She looked at me and said "Oh, I used to collect Disney pins. I'll send some to you." This past week, she sent me a tracking number.

    Holy cow! I was not expecting the box that showed up on my doorstep. She is now officially my pin fairy godmother!

    The box weighed almost 7 pounds and was filled with all sorts of cool stuff.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    She sent these Lilo and Stitch Disney Store pins, Winnie the Pooh buttons, and these neat Disney Coins.

    There were also some bags of pins. Included were most of the 100 Years of Dreams pins and a lot of 12 Months of Magic pins.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    And there were these Pooh as Santa around the world pins set. Plus a large portion of the Countdown to the Millennium pins.

    I'm so over whelmed, I'm not even sure how to say thank you to her that would sum up my full gratitude. When she said she'd send pins, I was thinking a few, but this is... well, I'm speechless and my brain is blanking on what else to say to her.

    But I did want to share my excitement with you guys![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you. I think my brain is still trying to comprehend it all. I just read back through my posts and I didn't have much to say to describe the pins. I think it's because I just keep staring at the screen in disbelief. I know somewhere inside I'm really excited about this, but it should come out after the shock wears off. Lol.
