Me too.. mines in transit I can't wait to see what KatJones has in store for me =D We both opted for surprises so we each have no idea what we're getting... I'm on the edge of my seat!

 Grin Grin My booty is here at last  Grin Grin

KatJones did a great job! I love it! Thanks for making my first swap a success =D WOO HOO!

Here's Z kitty checking it out- I think he likes it! Well he is an agent of death so he should approve right  Wink


Here's a close up of a cool little pill box that had the earrings as a surprise inside of it.


I think the earrings are made out of little milagros- a sacred heart and a praying person I think- I can't wait to wear these tomorrow =D I also got an awesome little pin cushion made from the same fabric as the purse I got- see action shot below  Wink I've been thinking about trying to make a pin cushion- now I don't have to - hee hee. Kat also included a section of the local paper with day of the Dead goodness in it's pages- I was too excited to post pictures up so I haven't had a chance to read it yet- I'll let you all know what goodies I learn from it!

Now for the action shots- they seem all the rage these days =D





Thanks KatJones I love what you made for me =D Not only is it fun but it's educational as well  Wink

Batgirl said i could post pics of what I sent to her.. so here they are. (lori- if you have better ones please post)
Included in the package was.. a super cool card that there aren't good enough pics of, it basically was a pop up with this skull couple... a skull stuffie/pincushion, a coinpurse, a set of sewn loteria notecards, a sketchpad, hand drawn skull magnets, one frida skull charm and one sugar skull charm.
*edit: i forgot to mention the fabric painted sacred heart headband(action shots)*

Yay!  Thanks sweetheart for posting those for me.  Goodness... if it's not one thing keeping me from getting online long enough to post pictures it's another... BWAh! 
I had such an amazing time swaping this round.  And I feel again like I"m learning so much about the swap process. 
Thank you TeaCouture for sending so much awesome stuff.  Such a wonderful package that totally cheered me up in this time of hardship.  Yay!!!!!!!!!
And my shadowbox is already hanging on the wall next to the sacred heart sculpture that I recieved from a fellow crafter.
WOO HOO!  Amazing!

 RobynLisa, I'm so glad you like everything! lol I wonder if your dog smells my dog on the plushie. She didn't play with it, but she was next to me while I was making it (she has this weird thing where she hates when I do any needle arts so she purposely gets tangles in the floss, yarn, etc).
  And thank you for my package! I just recieved my emergency loan from school....so I can purchase food and batteries...lol so I'll finally be able to post photos of the goodies you sent me. <3

I sent her a scarf with felt skull decorations sewn on, a reverse painting, some Frida stationary, a skull egg, and a little box to keep it in complete with skull tie closure and an exerpt of the poem "La Muerta" by Pablo  Neruda.  This swap definitely was a lot of fun!

And, a beautiful painted box. Its so beautiful, you are a talented painter.
The top:

 The inside:
The side: I love the mirrors!
And the bottom (even the bottom is pretty!)
