Yay! I received last night from Ffrogg526! We've been doing a lot of chatting throughout this swap and she sent me just the most awesomest package!
Okay, I believe in pics, excessively!
The first thing I noticed about the package when I pulled it out of the mailbox was how good it smelled. I nearly ran home to tear it open.
The grand opening! Ffrogg526 is very smart. I wasn't so kind:
Candid cat shot. Honey thanks you for her new box (Honey, the cat, has a "thing" for boxes):
The result (I could not have been bothered to wind while I tore into it, it was too heavy!). I really really love this variegated purple/white wool yarn.
I have been really wanting to make myself to crochet slippers, and that's what I got, plus a crochet magazine, and a fun new age magazine (you cannot go wrong with a magazine that has fairies on the cover, that's all I'm saying):
Look! I was good and rolled the yarn! My package came with several handmade thank you and happy birthday cards (plus envelopes), an Ashville NC sticker, a personal letter (thank you!), Ffrogg526 favorite tea (which is so beautiful), yummy scented Tibetan candles, three quartz stones, a quotable magnet, a bamboo (I love bamboo!) afghan/tunisian hook, a notebook with hand-written quotes and designs inside (I took the pictures at 4am this morning and no one else was conscious to help me flip through it to take pictures of everything), a magnet notepad, skully scrap fabric, and hand-painted river rock:
There was also a maroon and skully hook rollup, and I really love those colors together! Some Vietnamese (litchi) gummies, more hand painted river rocks (by hand painted I mean by Ffrogg526), sea glass (perfect because I needed these for an upcoming project), crochet flower motifs, and foam skullys:
More pics of everything:

There was also a beret I forgot to get a pic of.
Thank you so much for everything!
I have one birthday present to finish and my mom's day present to put together, then I will make my slippers and post the pics from that over the weekend.
