Yippee!!!  I got my gift from my Secret Pal today!!!  Heres a picture:

They are sooooooo beautiful!! Thank you , thank you, thank you!!!!! I absolutely love them!!  You are too generous Secret Pal!  I LOVE long dangy earrings and these are just awesome!  I love jewelry and earrings and bracelets are my top favorites.  And yes SP, knitted items and/or jewelry or whatever creative stuff you come up with are fine with me.  I'm very easy to please, there's rarely something that I don't like.  And I love your theme - I'm a big fan of all things Asian/Oriental.  You are too cool Secret Pal!  Thank you again.

does anybody know if the pictures of super-crafty-gifty-ness that have been put in the original swap thread can be moved here?  i think it would just be great if all the received items could be in one place for viewing, ooh-ing, and ah-ing.


ps- i love this swap!

Okay I got a gift from my swapper today!!  Cheesy Got a yummy smelling soap, I believe she said dulce de leche mmmm, and some fizzy bath bombs (I think in the shape of a heart, one of them got broken  Cry but it's okay) and this funky little plastic teddy bear in a Viking costume (did you know that in high school, I was a Nimitz Viking?? how odd) he's standing guard right now. Thanks Secret Craftster!! I will email you later with answers to the questions.  Smiley

Yeah, I got a package in the mail, today!!!  I was so excited, I ripped the package open fast.  My hubby was laughing.

I got a wonderfully cute & warm hat to wear this winter (how did you know I needed a hat, as cold as its been around here lately, I might need to wear it sooner!)  There is more red in the cap than the picture shows.    I love the floral pin....it was made very well.  I think I'll use your technique to make some of my own!

My cat loved checking out my goodies and wanted to get in on the picture

My S.C. also added the cutest french cat post card.  Its darling!

Thank-you so much for everything.  I love it all!!

Yeah!  I got my first package today.  Thank you Secret Craftster, I love it and it totally brightened my otherwise miserable day!  My SC was very busy.  I got a huge stack of cute colored shaving cream paper which I love b/c it smells like a guy (something absent in my life right now,) a little handbag with a heart and "R" on it, a drawing with my name on it and a really cute little notebook with a mermen stamp and am embossed "R."  I have been meaning to make myself and initial bag, so now I don't have to.  Thank you so much secret crafter!  I'll post a little about myself in the other thread.

I couldn't get a good picture of the little notebook, but it is really cute!

Wow!   My SC struck again!  To further my knitting abiliities, I recieved instructions and supplies to make the edible panties from knitty  Cheesy Grin  You should've seen my husband's face!  Now maybe he'll hush with all the "becoming an old lady at 25" comments haha  I also got some more fantastic postcards!  I'm so excited!  Thanks so much!  You are the best SC ever!!!!
