On Saturday, I received my fabulous package from Samsmartypants!
Check out the loot!
Shown here is a lavendar yoga bag with a matching mat, a swank hip pack, a terry cloth "neck cooler" (so useful on these 90 degree days!), pin-up girl magnets, an issue of Shape loaded with useful articles and tasty-looking recipes and a lovely card that reads (along with the personal note) "you're so hot. There, now do you feel better?" which made me laugh--I hardly expected a pretty card with blossoms on the front to have such a cheeky sentiment inside.

All of the handmade items were so beautifull sewn together, looking so slick and professional!

Here's a closeup of the yoga mat and carrying bag, made of a shiny sort of asian-esque fabric, with a bead drawstring closure:

And here's my torso, representing the hip pack. It has a lining in a lovely rasberry cordoroy and two compartments. I've already used it for my bike ride today, where it remained comfy and snug where it should, happily carrying my keys, wallet and cell phone. it also swanked up my rather drab workout wear...(I noted that it matched the blue in my Cranes t-shirt perfectly)

And these are the cutest magnets ever! Getting fit never looked so hot. Each one has a quote beneath the image. The biker chick reads: "There ain't much fun in medicine, but a heck of a lot of medicine in fun." the girl on the scale says: "To ask a woman to be unnaturally thin is to ask them to relinquish their sensuality." --Naomi Wolf and finally, the girl with the old school exercising belt (what were those supposed to do anyway?) is captioned "The best Doctors in the world are Doctor Quiet, Doctor Diet and Doctor Merryman." --Jonathan Swift.  My husband thinks they're really cool, too...

All of the gifts and crafts were so thoughtful and beautifully put together! Thanks so much, Samantha (Samsmartypants)!!!

I'm glad you liked everything, bookishgrrl. And also thanks for sending me links to the pics you took of what you sent me since my camera is on the fritz.

Here are all my wonderful motivational goodies:

Everything together: A wonderful journal (The adventures of Sam Smart) plus scraps to make it pretty, motivational cards that I already have placed all over the house and on every mirror! A Nalgene bottle (PINK!) with its own drawstring bag in my fave colors- I've used it everyday!, healthy recipe cards, the yummiest smelling eucalyptus and peppermint body spray, and the coolest CD EVER.

The journal alone:

The mixed CD and body spray. If you've never heard of Afro Celt Sound System, please download them now! They kept me going on my 3 mile cross country run this weekend! Love it!

One of the many awesome cards.

I love everything so much! And so far EVERYTHING has been put to good use. Since getting my package I started my diet, began running, and have lost 3 pounds so far. Who knew this swap could be so successful!

everything's goodies are so awsome!  I always think I should do yoga, if for nothing else than to be able to make a fashionable bag/mat set.  Grin

I got my package on Friday!  No pics yet b/c my digi batteries were dead but I will post this evening.  Primashonna sent me a journal with recipes and a workout/food journal spreadsheet.  So awsome because she gave me the file so I can personalize/print as many copies as possible!  She also gave me some FAN-TAS-TIC workout mixes.  Thank you!!!!!

I don't know if anybody else would be interested, but I just joined this site last monday and its seems to be helping motivate me, so I thought I'd pass it along. (I hope that's ok!) it's www.sparkpeople.com

It's sort of a forum for weight loss and exercise and so far everybody has been so nice. I even got my new fitness buddy into craftster.

Awesome stuff ladies! Please remember to post pics, so we can show off what we made. Also, for those of you who have sent and your partner has posted pics, you guys have gotten updated feedback (I think that is four of you so far) so double check, and if I missed you, please let me know!!
