All right, here are the pics!

The box when I first opened it: (My hat took three colors of yarn, and she so nicely wrapped each color up into a ball)

the yarn balls all lined up:

all of the stuff together:

she sent me gummy bears, Hello kitty ipod stickers, a lego key chain, 2 lip balms, 5 packets of beads, cute flower/camo fabric, tea, cherry hershey kisses, a chinese doll jacket, donald duck magic towel, silly putty, a candle, other stickers, and hello kitty gummies, candy, gum, pencils, a pen, and stickers.

as for the crafted stuff, well, I could not possibly love it more:

Polymer clay buttons ( I esp. love the carrot and turnip shaped ones, they remind me so much of super mario bros 2, lol)

a knitted wire bracelet with stone beads:

a close up on the detail:

awesome poly clay earings (eggs and katamari's):

cutest stitch markers:

a shrinky dink charm bracelet( i wish i could have gotten a better pic of this)

knitted accessory pouch and an ipod cozie (she also sent me the yarn used to make this):

Thank you so much again! Everything is great!

There were the most fabulous things in this myb:

these super cute mini nailfiles, which I always need
gummi bears, which have already been consumed  Grin
some cute note paper and recipe cards
a felt flower pin,

a delightful extra ball of blue mohair
I feel like i am forgetting something because I was so spoiled....

Thanks Rebeldaisy, it was a fabulous swap! Grin

Roll Eyes Found the camera...And I was goin gto wait and unwrap as I went along, but my size J hook has gone missing and I tried it on the I and the K hooks, but they where too small/big.

I received lovely goodies from untoherselfalone, but my camera will not hold a charge to photograph it.  I'll get new batteries tomorrow, but in the meantime, I have the MYB in its received pristine condition just for photographing.   Grin

i've been a bad swap partner for taking so long to post pictures Sad  AND i feel stupid because i totally only took pictures of the inside of the ball and not the yarn itself!  Cheesy  that will have to come later -- here's what dancer4ever sent me:

amazing beaded necklace, earrings, teeny tiny origami crane and stars, stitchmarkers, embroidery floss, address book, hilarious dog fabric, two handmade pendants, two flower beads, and some crystal light and tea (which looks delicious!).  of course, she also sent me two skeins of yarn and some needles Wink

thanks so much, dancer!! i promise to get a picture of the yarn itself up soon -- i've only had a little bit of time to work on the pattern, but i've got a few inches done on my secret scarf  Cheesy

I got my ball from varandra!  It's fantastic!  I know I swore I'd knit the goodies out this time, but I didn't get a chance since I let my Mum see it and she immediately started taking the goodies out Roll Eyes  I am not making this up, either!  But, oooh, yummy!  I can't wait to start on my "secret" hat Grin

I am having such craft anxiety right now...

the qfa:
unequivocally proving that knitting is not an intelligence test
