Gizmonic (and CraftADDchick) are in the top 10 (probably top 3) of most awesome swappers!  It's too bad you got flaked on but the good news is:  YOU GOT GIZMONIC for an angel!!!  I'm sooooo happy for you and can't WAIT to see all you got!

I know!  I'm really lucky.  And gizmonic is awesome for being a brilliant angel during the holidays after already finishing the original swap.

Here's another photo from the gigantic box of goodies from Ohio.



So much stuff.  A large book bag with a zippered opening from her local library is in the background.  In the middle back is a pack of holiday cards with envelopes; the photo features a popular/famous gazebo from her town and the whole set is made local to her.  Middle right: a candy mold for Day of the Dead sugar skulls!  I've always wanted some of these, but never gotten around to ordering them.  I have no idea how she knew this - she's psychic.  In the front is a felted bowl holding two hand knit washcloths and a bar of some luscious smelling soap.  I can't wait to pamper myself with a bath using these items.    Finally for this picture, framing the items are locally made beers!!  She is so sneaky to have shipped me beers!!  One is a pale ale and the other is a lager, they both feature names and labels tied to the history of Ohio.  That is just unbelievably cool.

There is so much great stuff in this box I'm going to have to keep spreading it out, otherwise we all might go into a goodie-overload coma.  I've still got four more photos and Dusty isn't even here yet!

Excellent goodies!! That soap sounds like it will be fabulous and knitted washcloths are the best! Fantastic local goodies too (how did she manage to ship beer without it breaking?). Nice job giz!

Here are some more photos of goodies from Gizomic:

Three different, cool books about Ohio, a set of reindeer tea towels (I love reindeer), a packet of winter candy from a local chocolate shop, a figurine of Christmas Story's Ralphie receiving his decoder ring in the mail and a cardinal statue - the cardinal is the state bird of Ohio and of Kentucky, my home state.


In this shot we have a nice scenery calendar and two skeins of red and black WoolEase; red and black is one of my favorite color combos as well as the team colors for Ohio State.  At the front right, there is a bag of Buckeye candies; they are a ball of peanut butter surrounded by chocolate.  They are candy representations of the buckeye nuts (from Ohio buckeye trees) which have a unique toxicity.  Buckeyes are what Ohio residents are often referred to as since a political candidate in the past used it in his slogans.  In the middle front is a HUGE (18 fl oz) coffee cup covered in facts and drawings of Cleveland.  Coincidentally, I've been looking for a large coffee cup for myself; I don't know how gizmonic knew this.  She is psychic, I tell ya'.  On the front left is a bag of pasta shaped in the university shaped "O"s.  It has a sauce packet inside and I think she sent me an entire dinner in the making - pasta with sauce, beer, candies.  That's a meal.


A Cleveland magazine, a buggy eyed reindeer ornament, a reindeer finger puppet on a peppermint stick (he is currently guarding my computer desk), a pack of reindeer tissues, pirate tissues, a box of pirate bandages with a tiny, miniature-sized pirate rubber ducky inside, reindeer treats (jellybeans) and I love the cartoon reindeer on the package.  They look like they're in treat heaven - so cute!  On the left is the stack of rust-colored fabrics of fat quarters she used to wrap everything in.  I think I could make a quilt top out of just that stack.  On top of the fabric is a wonderful small pot.  It is handmade, but I can't quite make out the signature on the bottom.  It currently has a home on my sewing desk - useful and pretty!


Finally, a poor shot of a poster.  At the bottom, it says Cleveland in old-newspaper style letters, but I couldn't fit it all in the shot.  It is a nice winter holiday poster, classy.

I was going to spread it out some more, but my home internet has been very flaky all of a sudden and I don't want to risk not being able to show off all this great stuff gizmonic sent.  Thank you gizmonic.

Hey it's great to see this thread come alive again!

Sarcastra, your pix are great!  You've made the goodies look better than I remember them!  Grin 

The handmade pot was purchased from the Cleveland State University's annual Starving Artists Ceramic show.  It's a great place to pick up a nice piece of art and support local talent.  Smiley  It's one of my fave art shows -- my mum & I attend every year. 

I'm sooo pleased you liked everything!  This swap's been a first for me -- 1st time swapping and 1st time swap angelling. Smiley  And judging by the compliments I think I've done ok! Wink

I haven't forgotten about Dusty -- he's waiting patiently (actually, tapping his paw furiously and looking at his imaginary watch  Roll Eyes Cheesy tsk!)  All that's left for me to finish is the album.  I'll get that to ya asap.
