I'm still debating...  Do I wanna or no??? 

I was "turned off" by the coordinator of one of my last swaps, so I wasn't going to join anymore, but this one looks like so much fun!!!

I've been stalking this thread since it started and I so want to join.  But I have no idea what to make!  And I'm supposed to be planning stuff for my wedding.. What to do? What to do?

I'm in the same boat, RoaneFaery!, Well, not the wedding part, but the wanting join but not having a clue what to make!

I've never seen chocolate tea, or heard of it before this swap either.  Is it good?

I'm not sure, but it looked interesting, so I decided to grab some!

I'm glad you like it all!

And I LOVE my package!  You guys ready to be jealous?  Here ya go!

First I got some teas:


Then some coffee AND cocoa in one!  (Can't wait to try that!)


Margeetaik also sent some "Texas coffee" which is really good.  I didn't get a picture of that, though, because hubby (a born and bread Texan) had already confiscated it!

Now for the craft part!
She made some coasters, a journal with a VERY true statement, and some awesome little cards.


Then there's the bag.  She must have known how much I love tote bags!

and a close up of the coffee cup


And finally, my favorite piece of all, a beautiful coffee fairy!


It looks like it's a watercolor.  Isn't margeetaik a wonderful artist?

Thank you so much for being my partner!!!

I'm going to pick up one more thing because another lady makes them WAY BETTER than what I could do.  After that, it will be time to pack up and send out!

I got my package today!


This is everything.  I didn't realize it, until Ila pointed it out on the cool bag (next pic) that my resolutions really were a mind/body/spirit thing.  The things she DIDN'T craft were some beautiful blue mohair, some soft yellow wool yarn, "Hope for each day" by Billy Graham, a cute magnet that says "I'm on a few diets because I can't get enough food on one.", A "grown-up" merit badge book, and some blue olympic fabric.



This is the exercise bag.  I collect angels, so this is REALLY cool!  There's also an exercise CD, but I haven't listened to it yet.


Yum, snacks!  And she even filled it with healthy stuff!  (You can't tell, but it says "Healthy Snacks Only")


And a water bottle -- with the reminder that I only need to fill it up twice!


This sign says "Music isn't just learning notes and playing them, you learn notes to play the music of your soul."  This will surely inspire me to continue to play my guitar each day!  She also made a container to hold my picks.

There was also a great "resolution handbook," which you can see in the main picture.  There are low-cal recipes, some exercise tips, a place for some inspirational thoughts/meditations/prayers...  geez, I think she put in everything she could think of and them some!

It's an awesome package!  Thank you so much!

I am attempting to make a new medium right now. I really really really hope she likes it! I am so super nervous she'll look at it and go "what a piece of $#!+"  Undecided

If this turns out crappy, then I think I may cry.

I'm am so sure that WON'T happen!  So there.

I've been down with a nasty virus all weekend and am only now feeling well enough to crawl out from under my rock.  But, I have the medium done (with the exception of the final thing I need to buy for it), the second medium started, two smalls finished and the third small started.  So I'm still doing OK.
