So I've been sitting here for days trying to figure out what the heck is wrong with my laptop.. My images wouldn't download from my memory card no matter what I did! WHY?!? *sob!*
And then tonight I was giving it another try and DOH!
I couldn't download the pictures from my card, because I had already downloaded them days ago!! ..they were sitting in my image folder waiting all nice and patient. Yeeps! I need the award for most chocolate-induced braindeadness, yes?
SOO, onto the pictures!! I received from Loops (all the way from the UK to the USA) on Saturday.. and boy oh boy folks.. be nice here, it's her first time swapping and we don't want to scare her away.. Cause she is a rocking swapper! My chocolates.. Ooooh, let me share them with you.
So here's the package, quite unassuming from the outside you might say..
But then EEEEEEP, open it up and chocolate bursts out everywhere! Along with some mysterious packages.. Oooh.
Package number 1! Filled with even more goodies.. and seriously, the best crafty I have ever received in a swap. This bag is awesome, more pictures below, but OMG, Loops is a master crafter.
OMG, even more chocolate inside!! (you understand now why my brain hasn't been working so well this week now, yes?)
Mystery packages number 2 & 3 are sweet! A beautiful hand-bound notebook and a CHOCOLATE ZOMBIE MAN! AHHHHH!
Chunk is THE coolest. Check out the hand-stitched details! He is so my favorite little plaything at work! All of my coworkers come out to check out my new toys (yes i have a lot of toys at work
) and all agree Chunk has the best personality. He's actually quite cheeky when you get to know him.
So check out this bag! Seriously folks, we're talking swap-orgasm here, this bag is AWEsome. Not only does it have a magnetic closure(!!), zippered pocketses, and fabric to die for...
LOOK AT THESE DETAILS! Okay, am I the only crafty geek in here who drools over stiching? I hope not, cause I've totally taken some stitch-porn pictures for your enjoyment. Loops is a fabulous crafter, and this is a totally excellent bag! I am just in love and so darn lucky to have had her as a partner. (neat fact: the bag is in my wedding colors! and we're having cupcakes at the reception! a wedding notepad and an official wedding bag, all in the nick of time! you'd think she had ESP or something..)
Loops, I sincerely hope you never experience swap anxiety again, cause you are a star! I am so overjoyed with our swap, and I loved having you as a partner! Thank you for being patient with my pre-wedding spazzness!! And just well, thank you for being YOU!
And thank you to our swap organizers, you guys are superstars! BEST SWAP EVER.
