Bobomom's package arrived this afternoon. Yay!

Here's what she sent me:

Olaf cookie cutter (or bread cutter!), frame, stamps, pencil cup, note cards, and artwork on canvas - I don't know how to make stamps or cookie cutters, and I love Olaf, so these are definitely my favourite items!

Little pouches and a bracelet

A hand towel

And I wore the T-shirt she made me to the post office tonight when I went to mail her package... and I'm wearing the bracelet - in the picture and now.

Thank you!  Cheesy

Hey, y'all! I sent my package to redheadskydiver today... and I received her package just before I mailed! Check out the goodies she sent my way!

That's the whole kit and kaboodle. So let's break it down: The black box in the upper left isn't very photogenic. It's a gorgeous hand-painted box with puffy letters across the top that says "Save The Cheerleader", but any time I try to take its picture, all you get is a white light over the top. Hey, maybe that's its gift.  Tongue

Here's the inside of the box:

She put a set of magnets inside the box too. Again, with all the shinies, it's hard to see the two with the group shot. The ones on the bottom row are of Mohinder, Hiro, and Nathan.

For the larger crafts, she focused on my favourites. I really like Hiro and Peter, so she made me this cute pendent with a hero on each side.

I've liked three characters pretty equally throughout season one... until toward the end, when I realised just how much Mohinder stand out in my mind. I really like Hiro and Peter, but Mohinder is my absolute favourite. And redheadskydiver made me a T-shirt to show it.

Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy what I sent as much as I'm enjoying what you gave me!

I'd been waiting for my partner to post pictures of what I sent as she'd received first, but I'll just post everything.

She sent me Ewok slippers, which I'm wearing right now. They're cute AND functional!

She also made me this kicky purse with the dualing lightsabers on one side and "May The Force Be With You" on the other, as well as a revamped mini-notebook.

I sent her a Jedi robe.

I also sent her a knitting needle roll as she'd requested, two revamped notebooks, and this coin purse made with computer transfer fabric that actually hadn't come out right for the pockets of the roll.

Hey, y'all! I received my swap package from Skrabadoo today. She packed so much into this project! I feel bad that I didn't craft more for her. She sent so many awesome things!

How cool is it that the first thing I saw when I received this package in the mail were all our friends from Sesame Street?

This is a reversable purse. One side is white, and the other has baby Sesame Street characters like Cookie Monster, Zoe, and Elmo. It looks cute both ways! She sent it this way, along with a shrinky-dink Kermit pin to adorn the outside.

Next we have this Sesame Street ice cube tray. This will be perfect for the upcoming summertime. I already have some Zarex fruit syrup and can't wait to make little icy treats with this tray!

These Muppet Baby barretts are adorable! She even included Baby Animal, my favourite from the series! And check out the little monster notebook on a chain! They're all packaged so professionally. I almost don't want to open them, they look so nice.

She made several notecards. Some have Fraggles, and some have Muppet Babies. The insides and backs are decorated too.

Here's a Kermit notebook. Gonzo is on the back:

Inside, she put stickers on every other page - and this Doozers bookmark too:

Here are two CDs with "Songs from the Street". I'll listen to those on my way to work tomorrow:

Check out this Jim Henson-inspired pink fuzzy frame with googly eyes!

And these Elmo stickers:

She put so much thought and work into this project, even down to the card that she put inside the package. This is the envelope:

And here's the card with her message to me:

I love everything I received! Thank you so much, Skrabadoo!!!  Grin Grin Grin

I come bearing pictures. I'm finally posting photos of what sunnyb64 made me - a notebook covered in snarky McKay quotes (are there any other kind?) and another with the many faces of Daniel Jackson. Can you tell that McKay and Daniel are my favourite characters? She also painted a wooden frame and put a picture of McKay in it. And how original is it that she painted a CD case to look like a DHD? Never in a million years would I have thought to do something like that! Look how shiny!


She also put the gate address for earth on a shirt, in case I get lost.  Tongue

I also had to include a picture of the box top; she drew the symbol for earth around her address.

Oh, and I happened to be wearing my BDUs today when I put on the shirt for the picture. Isn't that messed up?

7  Re: Stargate SG-1 / Atlantis Swap (signups CLOSED) (sendouts Feb 10) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by dearjoan on: January 30, 2007 11:19:29 PM
I just took this quiz and posted it on my LiveJournal, but I figured it'd be fun to share my results here and see what y'all get.

You scored as Daniel. You are Daniel Jackson and his inferiority complex. You feel that you are not important and that you are a fifth wheel.

Daniel 70%
Sam 55%
Teal'c 45%
Jack 45%
Jonas 45%

What Stargate character and their personality problem are you?

If you want to post your answers, you do have to play with the formatting, as the code you get is HTML, and the message board doesn't support it.
