here we go. junwin just rocks..lemme say that up front. She sent the most AMAZING silver dish with some raw sugar in it that tastes super yummy. A mug cozy that she said was her first attempt at a non scarf knitting job, and I dont believe her as it rocks, and I have it in my purse. She also sent another felted satchet with some swizzle sticks in it and some SUGAR PACKETS. I didnt say anything about it, but she *knew* that I'm always stealing it from the coffee house..There was also some local fair trade coffee, awesome smelling body products
and amazing "espresso self" cards! some very VERY lucky people may one day get these... maybe
Oh my goodness! I recieved from sarahswingset and I am/was blown away! Pics are CLICKABLE and you should do it to get all the glory.
Here's the whole shebang: I know i'll miss something, but I'll give it a try: There's an awesome lunch bag with an apple on it, some green tea, a recipe box with some yummmo (i've made 2 already) recipes, a box to organize my beads, a purse organizer (already in use!), a camera cozy, a book on how to take better pictures, some beads, and everything I need to get started embroidering and a box full of blog prompts.

FINALLY!!!! After talking to 4 post office's in Raleigh, numerous managers, supervisors, mail carriers, etc. My neighbor brought it over yesterday, because they delivered it to him. So, without further ado, Lookie what I got!! *sooo excited* (clicky the pic's, except for the first one) for a better view...
Here's the infamous package...
This little girl popped out of the box before I could get it all the way open. Steve was amused with the whiskers...
Ok, so I saw some of meepum's polymer work, and was secretly lusting over them...and I GOT MY OWN (yay)
This is an absolute gorgeous bag. I love it so much, and I've started using it already. It makes me giggle all day.
and finally, she sent me an absolutely GORGEOUS black denim jacket with this on the bottom: My camera died before I managed to get an action shot, but it fits like it was made for me...I took it to lab because it's always soo chilly in there...
thanks so much meepum, you were an excellent swapper!!! <3
