Ag.  Swap Anxiety.  I got one of my boxes, from failure by design (ooooh.  so prettyyyyyy...).. but my SIster has my camera.  And she is across the country.  When she comes home, you will get the pictures!  Ag.  Again.  Swap anxiety. 
And..
I hope beetlepose's box doesn't break in the mail.....

I received from Mave and Lucy Van Pelt.

Mave sent a gorgeous card and candy! Hubby took the chocolate, I kept the parma violets -- YUM!


Inside all my goodies:


and some close ups:


and more


Thank you so much Mave! You must have stalked me really hard! There's fish stuff, whales, hangers, OH everything is so perfect, I love it all! Thank you so much!


Lucy Van Pelt found a pre-decorated tin, cool huh?


And made a matching card:


now for the insides:

fabric bits, butter knife charm, London bridge charm?, a whale bead, more hematite beads (yes I love whales, and hematite), and stickers!


lots of paper ephemera for ATCs, and I love it, a Sam I am playing piece? cardstock? Any way, as a child I read Green Eggs and Ham so much, I wore my book out. What a wonderful reminder!


a couple more links of close ups:

I received a great box from Maezen. I loved everything, especially the tassel and ladybug embellishment. There was also stickers, beads, happy faces embellishments, itty bitty shells and lots of great stuff to use for cards and scrapbooking!

Thanks Maezen.

Hello! I received the nicest things from my partners!!!

First, i received from Jazzybelle:She sent all of these great stickers and ribbon!! I love the sheep Smiley they are so adorable!! The ribbon in the back is this great mutli colored ribbon that fades from blue to silver and green- its really pretty!

I really like the beads too, the glass ones were hard to take pics of, and how did you know i like scotty dogs so much  Wink I'm a knitter, so she made super tiny needle and yarn out of thread and matches!!!! They are so cute!!!



Then i received from Clovergrace: Wow!!! I cant believe all that stuff came out of that little box (okay a few were on the outside, but...)  I must admit some seed beads escaped(the cats will find them later im sure!)

I love everything!! I love the cutesy buttons especially, like the lamb and lady bug, and the beads are all so pretty, especially the glass candy and teeny little turtles! (im sorry i lost alot of picture quality when i made the pic smaller, but another of my favorites is the  the strawberry shortcake and polka dot koi Smiley Thank you so much!



Then i received from JennyLeigh: She gave me such nice swatches of paper!! i especially like the origami paper!! it is gorgeous! She also gave me so stamps, a pin, cute fimo and lettered beads, bells, and other pretty knick knacks! Thank you so much Smiley


Thank you again, JazzyBelle, CloverGrace, and JennyLeigh! You were wonderful swap partners!  I love all of my little treasures and already have some big plans for a couple of them

I love this swap, I'd be happy doing no swaps but this one from now on! I'm already collecting bits & pieces for the next one!

Cara, I'm glad you liked your box of tinies! Shocked) I have so much paper ephemera from my card-making ventures that it was a natural to share with you!

I received my boxes last week (I'm slow about posting pics, I know, but it's been rainy :-( ). Thank you all so much for everything!

First, from Clovergrace:



She made me the cutest yellow box (yay!) and absolutely stuffed it with all kinds of beads and buttons.

Next, I received from JennyLeigh:



She sent me some great stamps (I love the bicenntenial one!) as well as some cute rhinestones and beads.

Finally, I received a package from frogpuddle:







She sent me a REALLY SUPER COOL Harry Potter card, as well as some great stickers and really cool buttons. I couldn't believe how much she got into the box! I can't fit it all back in, so I guess I'll have to use some of it. :-P

I feel so spoiled! Thanks to my three *great* swap partners and the coolest organizers ever!

Thanks a lot! 

(Does anyone  know is there a way to resize the images when you are hosting on flickr and then putting them here? If so maybe you could pm me?  Please!)

Wow! Everyone is getting great boxes!

I received from sk8grll:

The box is made from jelly bean paper, but very sturdy. I LOVE jelly beans, LOL, after Easter I raid all the local "end of easter sales." My favs are jelly bellies, but then, I think everyone likes them.


I couldn't believe how stuffed it was, so I took a picture before spilling the goods.  . .


And now the goods:


There are mini pompons, gold braid (maybe a charm bracelet base?), wiggle eyes, a button, heart brads, rhinestones, and a fabric rose.
I love the rose, the brads, and rhinestones the best!

Thank you sk8grll, I love it!!!!
