Hi I got a lovely box filled with all kinds of goodies today from Denise M! I got a cute little vase thing filled with flowers and a little bunny sitting in the flowers. A really cool candle holder covered with shells and a beachy candle (it'll be like being at the beach everyday!), 3 cute magnets, 4 really pretty pairs of earrings (I cant wait to wear them), A neat book mark, and my favorite a stuffed bear (how'd you know i love bears?  Smiley ) Thank you soooo much!!!!!  Grin I'll post pics after i ask Denise if it's okay!

 Cheesy I received all my wunderful goodies the other day!
it was quite a joyful occasion since i was having a bad day that day.. but anyhoo, here is what i got:

a nice flowery journal. The outer cover looks to be made from recycled paper and bits o' yarn, and on the cover are nice vintage style red paper flowers and inside is smooth bright green paper. The top is held together by these rings. its so neat, i love it! It reminds me of those yummy journals i try to resist from buying all the time at B&N...

also in the package was a knitted pouch! yay! i love knitties!
the little knit pouch is blue and green stripey with funky cute bright blue and green small yarn stripeys. It has a really cute oriental style button to close.  this is tres' cute!!! i wish i knew how to knit!!  Right now the little knit pouch is a happy home for my cell ph.! i'm glad, i can now find my cellph.

And last but not least, i got some super glittery cute magnets...
2 - were yellow flowers (my fave colour flowers, how'd u kno?) these were lined in gold glitter... then the other 2 magnets were vintage style bluebirds (so cute 2!) lined in red glitter... Smiley

 Cheesy Great job J PANTS!!!! you did awesome!!
did you use resin in the magnets? or something else? that is so neat!
THanks so much! i loved it all!!! Another great Random Swap!!!

sewsudchic-I'm so glad you liked your packie!  It was funny, I started reading your post without really looking to see who it was posting, as I got through the description of the book, I started to think, That sounds like my book!  Then I saw it was your post and I was like, It is my book!  I was in such a hurry to mail the stuff that I forgot to take a picture, but you did such a great job of describing everything!


did you use resin in the magnets? or something else? that is so neat!

Here is a whole thread about bottlecap magnets!  enjoy!

Barbi sent me the coolest stuff!  It's not in front of me so I can't remember it all.  A really nice body shaped vase, some sushi earings (very cute), some orignal artwork in a great frame, Marmaduke marble thumbtacks (I really needed some more), a really cute skeleton necklace, a bracelet with homemade beads, a sushi figurine that broke in the mail but I can glue it back and I can't remember if that was everything or not.

Thanks!  My package is going to go out Monday.  "D

What a great day!  It started crappy but improved at mail time when I received a box full of beautiful things from alleycat.

There was a painted pot with flower pens, a painted box that held a surprise (magnets), a cute purse, gel pens, and a lovely journal.

Thanks you so much!

I will post a picture as soon as I can.

The doorbell rang and woke me up, causing me to immediatly jump out of bed and run to the door to see if it was the mailman.  It was, and look what he brought me from she is an orange:  The bag is reversible!
edit: Ha, I didn't even mention whether I liked the stuff or not!  (I do, btw)   Grin

Today I received my stuff from Lissa!  She sent me a cute daisy print bag with lace trim, a jar that had "candy" etched on it and filled with jolly ranchers, a cute lady bug hair elastic, a sachet, homemade envelopes, recipe cards, and salt dough ornaments.  Thanks, it was so fun to open everything up!
Here's a picture of everything:

I just got my AMAZING package from kendaljay!  I got magnets, and a box, and a scarf, a notebook, some flower pens in a pot, and i think some other stuff i can't remember off the top of my head.  the most wonderful thing was these cards she made.  i am so completely overwhelmed with how fantastic they are.

aww. have you not gotten your's yet? Since our host is MIA, maybe we could have all the people who have not gotten anything yet post on here. I would be happy to send extra boxes, I know my sister would too, along with several others. And if you are one of the people who haven't SENT a box yet (for any reason, it doesn't matter) maybe you could let you're swapper know what's going on, or even PM me if you decided you can't send anything. I just want everyone to get something, cause it really sucks if you don't. I hope I'm not out of line here, but I think others feel the same way. It was a fun swap, and we don't want it to turn bad.

It is so sad that some are still anxiously awaiting their goody boxes.  If the swappers really do turn out to be AWOL let me know  kendaljay and I have some goodies I would be willing to send as well.

At risk of sounding like a whiny little beeyotch, could I please have the confirmation number of the package? I still haven't received anything.  If you haven't sent it, and have no plans to, just let me know and I'll let it go, no need for anyone else to send me anything.  All I want is to know if I should actually really and truly be expecting anything that is random to be coming my way.  My patience in this matter has been and gone.
