Wow! Everyone is getting so spoiled! What awesome boxes!

I love the Girls Night Out box and I am stealing the idea of the little goodie bags for the next time craft day is at my house! The Apocalypse Survival Kit was a hoot, but I hope you never have to use it all Wink

And now we know what was in the plastic tote- the leaf printed items are awesome. I love the colors you chose! The Telephone box was also cute. I would have been stumped on that one, but it came out great- I love the circle purse!

The Tea Time box is fabulous- I love the ribbon coasters (might have to figure out how those are made) and the tea towel. And the Pinup box was great! I love the cork lid and pinups are just so much fun- the perfect blend of naughty and nice!


The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

I am so happy you liked your box! I was worried you didn't get it or like it since I didn't hear from you. I hope I didn't ruin it, the USPS said you got it so that's why I posted the pics! I had so much fun, and YES, I was TOTALLY stumped but ended up liking it

thanks KPuppy! It's my cockatiel Disney, "just chillin" on an ice cream tub(by the way, Bubble Yum ice cream is Delish!).

Mmmm...I'll have to try bubble yum ice cream. Re: The avatar, I just looked at it and I was like, "Ok, a cockatiel, a tub of ice cream and a bottle of water......I DON'T GET IT, but I love it."  Cheesy

My box from Phizzychick arrived today, which was super fast considering it came across the pond!

First of all, receiving a package labeled Royal Mail made me feel like a princess. Or in this casea FROG princess!

And, I was unbelievably spoiled! The first clue was the weight of the box (no wonder it cost so much to ship!).

Now, I took a ton of pics (about 30), but since I cant post them all here, I created a web page that has close-up views of most of the stuff. So click HERE if you want to get a better look at anything! The attention to detail that Phizzychick has makes it worth a closer look!

First upthe boxwith very clever label

Great card (elm tree on front is made with wood from a real elm tree), with cute envelope

Now on to the actual goodies!

It started with a dish towel with a hand-embroidered frog on it (I love how subtle the frog is, but it doesnt photograph well) and some awesome tags!

Next up, a bunch of hand made frog and frog-colored jewelry. There was a LOL-funny jar labeled Frog Legs (the lid said Yum) and it contained 4 pairs of earrings- one set of frog legs made from clay, and 3 beaded sets, including one with felt frog feet. There is an awesome coil bracelet that had a felted bead on it and a pair of earrings with crocheted beads. There is a whole set of beads that look like frog skin (green with spots). And, a frog pendant made of clay that has moveable parts! Did I mention that I was spoiled in this swap?

Then, there is a hand sewn frog sachet, a knitted wrist cuff (in Kermit the Frog green), a snap on plastic bracelet/cuff with red poison arrow frogs, a clip with an awesome Girl Guides patch on it (it has a frog on it of course and it will soon be hanging on my backpack!), an adorable bookmark with a clay frog and a tag that says KREADIT on it, and a fabulous silver-and-jewels frog pin. Can you see why I feel like a princess?

Next, an amazing wood plaque with a frog collage on it! Its gorgeous and I am trying to decide where the perfect spot for it is. Definitely someplace where folks can see it!

Then, there was a frog bean bag and a frog stuffie clip, and some adorable frog stickers.

Also, fridge magnets that spell out FROG, a felt frog clip, a little pom-pom frog, a bobble-head frog, some fun erasers (a frog, a robot dog and a shark in an inner tube), and a little book filled with things that are green.

And finally, a bunch of chocolates, including some Kinder Surprise eggs (there were 4, but one was a bit smashed, so I just had to eat it right away).

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU, Phizzychick! You were a fabulous, awesome, amazing swap partner!!

And, I apologize to everyone for posting so many pictures, but as you can see, there was so much to show off!!

Nice stuff everybody! I *love* the frogs!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are great!!!

I received from Silent dementia today. Woowie, so exciting

I asked for a `knitting for morons` box, and this is the box....

Really stupid, but at first I thought she had drawn kittens in the box  Cheesy. But they are yarn and needles  Roll Eyes

And in the box I've found:

Needles in different sizes and material, and lots of beautiful colourful yarn!!!

The Stitch and Bitch book, I looked through it and it had loads of fun stuff in it, also a lot of easy things  Cheesy

these pages explaining about different patterns with examples of them. I only hope i can ever reach this level  Grin I really need to read that book because still a lot sounds acrabadabra to me  Cheesy

Luckily she also did put some chocolate in! (not to be found on these pictures, I wonder why  Grin). And best of all: this shirt:

I love it! Its the right size and really comfy too. But to be able to wear it, I really need to learn how to knit. Thanks for the stimulus, Silent Dementia!!!!!
