 Shocked Grin Shocked Grin Shocked Grin OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Uhillb is going to be my swap partner for each and every swap that I do from here on out!  I am keeping her forever!!!!!!!  I just received my swap package from her, and I had to pick my jaw up from the floor.  Holy cannoli!  I am unable to post photos, but I am going to give a description of everything she sent, and then I'll PM her and she can post the photos.  Get ready to read!   Grin  Here goes:

B-a sliding Bookshelf, painted to look like a pencil!
A-Assorted stationery (She used letter stickers, and the most beautiful and whimsical and colorful stickers to make these herself!  And, she made 'thank you' cards, 'teacher' cards, 'Craftster' cards, cupcake and frog cards, etc.....)
A-Amazing Miss Barbara-little blocks painted in blue, yellow, and red with a letter of my name on each to spell out Miss Barbara!  (I am a preschool teacher, and that is what the students call me, as well as my screen name for Craftster.)
A-Awesome comma lesson-This item by itself would have been more than enough!  It is a cross stitch of something I had seen on Craftster when I first joined, that says:  "Let's eat, children.  Let's eat children!  COMMAS SAVE LIVES"  I'm a teacher who has an issue with spelling, grammatical mistakes, so this just cracked me up when I saw it....
R-Rubber ducky soaps-THREE of them!  Three different rubber duckies, each sitting in his/her own blue soap "boat"!
R-Roll for hooks-I am an avid crocheter, and I had received a roll for my hooks from another swap, but unfortunately, it was made way too big to hold crochet hooks.  I had asked for another one, and uhillb knitted me one, in my favorite combo of colors!!!!!!!
AND THE HUGE-for letters A & B b/c it's so big....A Box that is painted and carved to look like a Block!  It is sooooo big!

As if ALL THAT weren't enough, she sent a TON of extras too:  postcards, cupcake liners that say 'Baked just for you', a cupcake shaped journal, letter 'b' stationery, two 'See and Learn' DVDs, a booklet of cupcake/candy stickers, orange cupcake tissues, an ice cream stamp, teacher related buttons, apple buttons, a roll of cupcake ribbon, ladybug pushpins, ladybug buttons, and 'crocheted by' labels!

Uhillb, you are the BEST!  Thank you so very, very, very, very, very much!

 Cool  I want to let my potential partner for this swap know that I can also make her a crocheted pocketbook!  I am in the process of making one for my best friend and it's coming out AWESOME, if I do say so myself!

(It is lined with fabric, has an inside and outside pocket, etc...  It's my first try and I'm thrilled!!)

 Cheesy  Whoo-hoo!   I received today from Smittenheart!  I have been her swap partner before, so I knew I was in for a treat before I even opened the package!  Unfortunately, I am unable to post photos, so I will type out a list of what she sent, and then let her know that I received, so she can post photos, if she would like.  Here goes:

(The box came wrapped in reversible Xmas wrapping paper!  How fun, and what a great idea!)

-A knitted-she says snail, I say turtle-cute no matter which it is...it looks like one of the turtles from the 'Finding Nemo' movie!  He has an orange back (of course!), and a cute little smile on his face, and he is soooo soft!

-A nice, thick, LLLLOOOONNNNGGG knitted orange belt that is wide enough to double as a skinny scarf once this blasted heat ends!  She also added a ladybug embellishment!

-A pink icing/tan bottom knitted cupcake with a cherry on top (!) which will either stay in my kitchen as a decoration, or next to the computer to remind me of the one thing I desperately want to know how to crochet, but just can't!  Wink

-Two of those nifty little erasers that are shaped like items...she sent:  an ice cream cone and a pink robot.  Those went to my girls and they love them!

-Because I am a teacher, an apple themed magnetic note pad!

Smittenheart, you are the best, and I thank you very very very much!

 Cheesy  That necklace is pure awesomeness, and if I didn't have chores I had to do first today, I would run out and get the supplies to make it!  Cheesy
