I got The Bees Knees package awhile ago. I was waiting for her to get my package before I opened it though. (Again, stupid FedEx. ) I would have put it up last week, but I was so swamped with college and midterms before Spring Break. Anyway, she sent me a lot of cool stuff! It's so funny because we both did wood burning!
Here's what she sent:
This is Sleeping Beauty's castle.
This is it from the side.
Here's some charms for necklaces. It's Ariel and Ursula. I tried to take close up pictures, but most of them came out sort of blurry.
This is Ariel.
This is a lovely Cinderella print she made. It came out so wonderfully.
And just to be nice she threw in some top hat pictures and this bee print.
Thank you so much for being my partner, the bees knees! You rock.
No, I absolutely loved your package. I cook and bake all the time. I got a Kitchen Aid for Christmas. So I can always use new recipes. I'm glad you got up pictures of your stuff. I can post pictures of things inside the Wizard's Cracker. I've just been super busy with university. You did such a lovely job with the wrapping and everything. Also, I love jelly beans so it's okay that they aren't grass and pepper and sardine flavored.
I'm really, really glad you got my package. I was going to be bummed out if FedEx lost your package. That means that my other package for the Fairytale Swap should get there soon. And then my feedback will switch to positive! If you can't get up pictures of what I sent, I can always post pictures of what I sent you, too.
I was waiting to post pictures of the stuff Irish_Belle gave me until she got my package, but it looks like that might now happen. She hasn't gotten it in the mail yet. I sent the picture of the receipt to Dom and Irish_Belle. I just wish she would have gotten my package. The FedEx track number say it'll get there Friday, but I don't know why when it was supposed to send awhile ago. I worked pretty hard, too.
Anyway, I'm in class right now, but I'll try to post pictures later tonight or tomorrow of what Irish_Belle made me.
She made me a wizards cracker, a letter from Hogwarts about the Yule Ball, coasters for the four different houses, and a cookbook by Mrs Weasley. The wizards cracker had little record earrings that are supposed to be albums of the Weird Sisters, candy, a joke. Also, she gave me jelly beans to be Bertie Botts every flavor beans. The cookbook was really great because I cook all the time! That was my favorite. Thanks, Irish_Belle, and sorry about all the mess on my end with the post.
Haha the booger beans taste...weird...they're all dry, like boogers might taste like (WHO KNOWS, MAYBE I ATE BOOGERS WHEN I WAS A KID, BUT I WAS A STUPID KID, HOW DID I KNOW!! DON'T JUDGE )
Aaaanyway...heh... I signed up. I'm so excited. I haven't been in a swap for a few months so I'm itchin' to get my partner (even though I know it'll be a while, lol).
Hey, Emergency Exit, nice to see you 'round
Sidekick! I started to read your post before I saw who posted it...then halfway through I looked over to see who had posted it and gave a little laugh! Then I saw you said hi to me and that made me happy!
I should have realized you'd sign up for this swap. It'd be funny if we got each other again. This swap is making me happy, and I haven't even started crafting yet.
My younger sister is turning 18 soon, and I'm looking for ideas. I want a really unique gift because 18's kind of a big deal.
She's in her senior year in high school and is really studious. She's not much into fashion or shopping much although she does sometimes shop. She's not much of a girly girl. She likes to watch tv a lot. She occasionally likes to do crafts- not specific things, just mess around with paint or whatever. I haven't crafted her anything previously, but I do plan on making her a Harry Potter scarf with her initials double stitched on for Christmas.
Now, what I really want to do is something with a voting theme because she's 18 now. I thought about making a "voter's kit", but I'm not sure exactly what to put in it. I thought about putting in books from the gubernatorial candidates, but I don't know what else. And I would like to craft something, not just give her books, but I'm stuck on ideas. Maybe materials to make your own candidate buttons? I can sew, knit, and do a bunch of miscellaneous things like scrapbooking, wood burning, painting, other decorative type stuff. If any of you could help me brainstorm on this, I would really appreciate it, or if you have other suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
Oh, man. Oh, man. First an Indiana Jones swap idea, AND NOW THIS? Labyrinth is one of my favorite movies of all time. I watched it so much as a kid. I don't know if I'll be able to make it this time around though. Completely depends on the date. And if I can't, I will order all of you to make a round two...
