I received a LOVELY package from Mrs. Tricky today!  I couldn't wait til this evening to post... so here are all the goodies, all together:

My new, HUGE quilted beach bag -- perfect!

A bag for all of our sunscreens... it has 2 more big bottles inside!  And yes, we do need that much sunscreen... I have 5 fair-skinned redheads (and I'm one, myself!) Wink

A traditional Hawaiian quilting kit and book, plus some wonderful Hawaiian stickers and bandana (going to be used to tame my HAIR!)

This adorable, hand-made summer swap journal, complete with little built-in envelopes!  I'd never seen anything like this before... I'm kinda new to swaps... but this is AWESOME in my opinion.  And check out the sweet embroidered bookmark!


I'm such a lucky lady --- thank you so much, Jen!  I love it all!

That's a great package!  I hear ya on the fair skinned people - I'm one myself - but my kids tan like you wouldn't believe.

I love the swap journal with the envelopes - that's cool.  I think I'm going to wist it! Smiley

Ok, its taken me longer than I thought to organize everything for this new computer, but here are the pics of the stash sent to me by Sevsonlygirl:
Stash pic one:


Stash pic two:



Details of the two pictures, Two sets of flip flops, one furry (I love furry!) and one glittery, (And I love glitter!) Blinged out sunglasses, big ones at that! Candy! A journal, so now I have a place to put all the witty things my wee ones say, Hair ties to keep my unruly hair at bay when I'm outside in the humidity, (You know when your hair goes from sleek to BOING! in 3.3 seconds?) Hibiscus buttons, (My love for the tropical flower living in the midwest, go figure!)

My grilling apron, another hibiscus.


Craft on the go bag front:


Back:


I have a bracelet as well, but that is being repaired, my husband went to put it on me, and we lost the end. (Funny, my bracelet did the same thing to Khraene. Must be a bad time for home made bracelets.)

I just have to say Dawn rocks! Not just for the things I received, but for organizing this swap!!

Alright, finally got those pictures up.


Here's everything! Hmm, let's see. A cute beach tote, lovely pink yarn, stationary and journals (I love that brown and blue one, that's going to come in handy), a t-shirt (love the colors!) a book for the looong plane ride to Hawaii, hair bands, mosquito repellant, and a huuge thing of delicious, delicious lip balm.


A close up of the beach tote


Adorable earrings! There was an anklet that went along with it, but it's currently undergoing recuperation, as Roberta said...


Hair things! Perfect for Hawaii, haha. I love the pineapple one!


Why yes, that is mosquito repellant and yummy lip balm. Haha, on the label it says, "Please do not eat cosmetics."

Thanks for everything, Roberta! And thanks to Dawn for organizing :]

It's great to see stuff in the gallery!! 

Roberta - I hope everything was okay.  I was afraid that the feathery flip-flops wouldn't hold up, so I got the glittery pair too.  I'm not confident of my feather attachment skills just yet.LOL 

khraene - I love the tote and the tee - they're gorgeous!

Great stuff ladies!

Oh, everything was perfect! I've not had a problem witht he flip flops at all, in fact I wore them to get milk today.  Grin Jim, (Hubby) tugged too hard at the anklet, and we have to fix it, but it's no problem at all.
I've also worn the apron three times grilling, no more stains on my clothes, hooray! The hair ties were put to good use, and the candy was gone within the day, the kids thank you! Oh, and the craft tote has my on the go embroidery in it, that was a godsend! So you've already done my summer right!!
