Here's the wonderful goodies I received from Andrea!

Inspired by my wists: kitty pirate slippers-ooh-love the teal green!:


Fantastic apron made from napkins! very pretty!:


lovely jewelry that I've already worn Smiley Smiley Smiley:



a button covered pincushion that I love (I collect buttons), cool coasters from a Washington DC event that Andrea went to (and they are scandal free  Wink), and homemade doggie treats!:



close up:


we also made each other ATC's -she made her's from all dollar store stuff-I LOVE it!



so far the most popular gift was the doggie treats-here's one of my dogs Gidget enjoying one, BUT the one who was most addicted to them was one of my cats, Ginny! I actually had to hide the bag, but she still found it and tore it open to get more out!

THANKS Andrea!

What beautiful stuff!  I love the slippers!  I'm so jealous that everyone has found such beautiful things at their dollar stores.  Thankfully, I was able to almost totally complete one thing.  UGH!  I hate to think of driving back to the dollar store, but I might have to!

I'm sooooo glad you like everything!  And that the dogs (and cats) liked the treats.  My daughter and I made them one evening and had a blast doing it  Grin.

Here was my dollar store shopping list:
2 flour sack towels
1 hankie
3 fleece kid scarves
1 wooden box
1 packet of scrapbook paper
1 packet of beads
1 packet of buttons

I added in some stuff from my stash to make it complete.

Great stuff, guys!  You're making me a little panicky about my package because all of your stuff is so great!  I love it, love it, love it!

I love the button pin cushion! The colors are reminiscent of Victorian decor.

And your Ginny looks a lot like my Brynna (who likes crackers and other non-cat foods).



Yes, this is a great gallery. Smiley

I received from Spookshowbaby today.  This is the greatest package ever!!!  

First, a picture of everything:


I received the greatest Mickey Mouse purse created from fleece scarves.  If I'd only known, I would have never bought a purse while I was in Disney World!  Smiley
A Mickey Mouse KeyChain (Which is great since I flushed my keychain down the toilet at Noodles and Co yesterday)
Nestle Chocolate Lip Gloss
Lint rollers for Getting Lint off of the Beautiful Purse
A DVD/CD Holder created out of Little Mermaid placemats and a shower curtain that has pockets sewn into it (is this lady clever or what!)
A Wolfgang Puck Olive Loaf scented candle.  LOL
A sign that says "Wine Makes Everyone Hopeful"
A tuxedo wine bottle holder
AND a candle with Barry Manilow on the side singing Copacabana!!!


Here is the other side of the Mickey Purse:



And a close-up of Barry--sorry about it being fuzzy.  My camera just would not take a clear picture:


THANK YOU SO MUCH SPOOKSHOWBABY!!!  I LOVE EVERYTHING!!!

I received from DisneyFan today and let me just say that she could NOT have put together a more perfect package for me... Grin

My hubby left for Colorado this morning and took our good camera with him so I'll do my best to do these items justice...

Hold on to your socks...this is gonna be good!

Here's a group shot of the loot...There's a horror movie picture frame which is wicked cool...two crocheted coffee cozies in "America's" colors...absolutely lovely...a pair of soft purple Mary Jane crocheted slippers with AirForce buttons (my hubby's AirForce) I adore these slippers!...Horror flicks and Zombie magnets with a Johnny Cash Magnet that I'm so glad DisneyFan didn't let her hubby keep...LOL...a cute pair of socks and a two movie horror DVD...


Close up of the frame front:

The flash washed out The Exorcist at the top...

Frame back:


The rocking magnets...

That's Shaun of the Dead at the bottom...great movie!

And more with Johnny and my favorite Zombie of all times...Bub


and my lovely lovely slippers...

With close up of AirForce Button...


Can you believe that loot???....I'm am just so floored by it all...I really am...
Thanks again DisneyFan, I LOVE everything!...you've made my first swap unforgettable... Grin
