I was able to get my package tonight and I'm sh*tting myself over how perfect each item is, misslillamae. It took about half an hour to unwrap because I was giggling and 'oohing and ahhhing' so much. You got mad skills girl!
It hurt to resize these pictures, so get over the pic obeseness. The lighting was more suited toward my hangover then picture session, sorry. More information after:
Everything still wrapped up... & Mags, recipes, & a mix cd.

I was trying to keep the photo count down but closeups are in the album. Honestly, I wouldn't even know where to start gushing. The handmade goods are so well done, the little goodies are quirky and fun, the recipes fit the bill, the CD I'm excited to listen to, and the mag's are amusing as all hell. Both yarns are wonderful colours, the yarn deception was hilarious (I spent half an hour wondering how I was going to make a lace scarf with the winding yarn) and the actual blue colour is more suited to the first picture thats in the foreground and the green is more foresty. Let's give the bag a minute then I'll post. Once again the colours are great, the patches and inner pocket are kitschy, and I've just never found a bag before that suited me so well.
Thank you, sweetheart. Obviously your anxiety was a ruse so that when I recieved your MYB my amazement was dialed up to an eleven with surprise.
Best Swap Ever.
Best Partner Ever!
