*happydance*  

My package reached the zipcode early this morning--now it just needs delivering!

Since I already teased sparklypants with this, here's the "Before" images:



"Velveteen" scarf (there's only one scarf, though there are two pictures to establish both its scarfiness and its odd pattern)
Plastic "wild life" animals (basically, African safari animals, with the exception of the bear)
Receiving blanket
Knee-high socks
Fleece scarf with buttons
Mulberry scrapbook (the cover says 8 pages, but it really had 10)
Baby washcloths
Lion Boucl in "Hard Candy"

Whatever did I make with them?

(You can catch a non-revealing teaser at http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/42484dollartreefinishedcollage.jpg if you're feeling curious.)  Wink

Here is what I got:

the whole package along with lots of bubble wrap, not pictured!

an eyemask filled with rice and cinnamon, made from a baby onsie!

a mirror that she wrote the lyrics to U2's "still havent fount what I'm looking for" with silver pen, and some bookmarks that I will need since I read about 4 books at a time!

a flowerpot pincushion and some sunflower seeds that I can plant in my flower bed, yay!

some wizard of oz magnets that she totally cheated by not buying them at the dollar store  Shocked

AHHHH!  I just got pretty much the most amazing package from BatGrrl.  I literally JUST opened it, I haven't even had time to take pictures, but I will post them later this afternoon.  I am beyond excited, the package was absolutely perfect for me, and was more than I could have possibly hoped for.

Here are the promised photos of my shadowboxes and wall plaque in my craft room:




One is blurry, I know...but you get the idea...how perfect did those work out?

The best part is, the painting prints are from the dollar store, too.

Your alls Dollar Stores have way more stuff than mine does!  I never saw any type of prints!  Mine is on it's way to girlbot, hopefully she will get it soon.  I forgot to take pictures!

They had those prints one week, and none the next. Never saw prints again! We have a lot of dollar stores around here...you get that in a mostly poor city.

I visited no less than  11 Dollar Tree stores (1 in Oshkosh, 1 in Fond du Lac, 1 in Neenah, 3 in the general Appleton area, 3 in Green Bay, and two more [Wausau, Chippewa Falls] when I went to visit my family) during the course of this swap, and I have to say that the selection varies greatly within a single chain.  Only one store had the safari animals (and farm animals), and less than half carried yarn, and a few of those only carried the patchy-dog Voodoo yarn in zombie green (excuse me, "oasis") and black.  I was amazed at how different the selection was within only a 20 mile radius!

The shadowboxes and plaques go perfectly!

And I'm thrilled that sparklypants likes the package, because I had a blast making it!

Everyone's packages look great!  I'm always so impressed by the creativity in these swaps---of course, it gives me great anxiety to see what other people are able to craft!  Smiley  I just hope my partner likes what I sent!

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha
