I was all excited about this idea and went out in the yard to find a stick to practice on... And realized everything is covered in about a foot of snow, still.   Cheesy  Hopefully it will melt in the next few days so I can give it a try!!

I received last week but waited until today to open because I hadn't sent out yet.  Wulf posted that he was waiting to open until he sent out, and I thought that seemed like a really good idea, so I followed his lead  Smiley

I received two amazing packages!!!   First up, from artmomto5 - there were two items beautifully wrapped in lime green tissue paper with teal bows...  Insect specimens!  I LOVE beetles with crazy horns and such, and had a bunch of them on my Pinterest board.







These are really cool.  I love the micro writing identification!   Cheesy

Then I opened my amazing package from WiccadWitch!  I was spoiled, big time!!

The first thing I saw was this cool looking specimen in a jar

Inside was my very own Alpine Tatzelwurm (faetus)!!

He is really cool.  Check out the details...



Then I noticed there was a TINY little specimen in a jar...  This cute lil guy!

The note says he is inspired by a "creature" a woman found in a can of tuna.  Eww to creatures in tuna, but yay for this dude!



Finally, the piece de resistance...  What could be inside this gorgeous box?

What could it be?

HOLY COW, IT'S A FAIRY!!

Isn't she gorgeous?  I discovered that she sits perfectly on the side of her box.

There was a story enclosed, about the Naree Pon Fairies.  Fascinating.  Now I really want to go to the temple outside of Bangkok to see them!


Thank you SO MUCH, artmomto5 and WiccadWitch!  I'm glad I waited to open until after I'd sent out... Mad swap anxiety now!   Undecided  I put my little curiousities on my bookshelf in my office, and they are *my office is -slash- my bookshelves are* immensely more interesting now!!!

This looks pretty easy, and fun!  About my speed right now, something that is almost foolproof.  My creativity hat seems to be missing these days and I've been struggling on some of the more creativity minded swaps!  Though I finally pulled through, it was a struggle...

Whew.  Sent!  I sent priority 2-day, but my postal person never came today either, so we'll see what really happens.   Roll Eyes

I am a naughty swapper.  I am sending late Sad  Silly life got in the way of me getting to the PO but I plan to bring the boxes to the PO before work on Saturday.  Hopefully priority mail will come through for me and delivery quickly!

I am sending late as well.   I'd planned to send on Monday, and lovely partner artmomto5 reminded me that it was President's Day and the PO would be closed! (argh).  I suppose it is just as well since we got a ton of snow here (we're not really well equipped for it, though we do tend to get 1 or 2 good snows a year).  I wound up working from home yesterday & today.  I'm going to venture out to the post office later this afternoon - wish me luck!  We managed to clear our driveway and the plows have come through, but everything is still covered in snow.  Ever since I hydroplaned and totaled my car about 15 years ago I get a bit twitchy about the possibility of sliding.  Tongue  I'm going to make DH drive me down there in his AWD Subaru.  I'm sure it will be fine.   Cool

I'm working mine in tandem, bits at a time.  I guess that is a bit different!  Smiley
