Oh the Lorax!  I was looking at the blanket thinking "I know that's fromsomething, I just don't know what"

My package arrived and as soon as I find the cord for my camera I will post pics. sarantha spoiled me. The big item is something I would never have thought of but it's the best thing ever! That's all the tease you're getting until I can post pics though...

Phew, I'm so glad you like it Smiley I was getting seriously worried you might be disappointed by the package.. swap anxiety is a terrible affliction  Grin I'll be back home on Monday, maybe my package will already be waiting for me...

Ah...the power of cleaning.  I found my camera cord!

Here's my schwag from sarantha:



There's some pretty stationary and some munchies in the form of Haribo gummies and something called Gotter Speise that I've yet to try.

She made little blank books to fit in my purse for those moments of inspiration:



The poem is Lawrence Ferlinghetti's The World Is a Beautiful Place.

Then there's a crocheted pencil case:



This one is based off of Pablo Neruda's I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You.

And then the bestest ever...a Gary Larson bag:



She was sneaky and saw that I had the complete Far Side collection on my wist so the combined that with the poetry challenge and based if off of the "Cow Poetry" strip. The strip itself isn't available online, but here's the text

Isn't that just the coolest thing you've seen. I immediately swapped out my regular work bag and have been using this one ever since. I failed to take pics of the insides, but it's, of course, patterned like a cow and the bag itself is fuzzy.  It's all kinds of cool!  Thanks sarantha!

Phew, I'm so glad you like it Smiley I was getting seriously worried you might be disappointed by the package.. swap anxiety is a terrible affliction  Grin I'll be back home on Monday, maybe my package will already be waiting for me...

Even if the crafts hadn't rocked (which they totally did), I lived overseas for awhile and developed an addiction to Haribo that I can only appease at an expensive import food shop around the corner from my work, so including that alone meant I loved the package  Cheesy

that is super, the cow reading poetry.

and there should be a warning on those haribou packs as to their addictive nature.

Aw, thanks Smiley I'm really happy with how the cow applications worked out, I only messed up a tiny bit. I think the Far Side is awesome, so I just had to choose that as a theme when I saw your wist  Cheesy

I received, too - YAY. I really really like the package, I'll post pictures soon, when I've found my camera in my not-yet-unpacked bags ... thanks for a great swap! Where are the pictures of the other people who've received?? I'd love to see everybody's stuff.

I love seeing what everybody's made-it's all so creative. Of course,everything's been so cool I'm now filled with swap anxiety about my own crafting. Smiley Seriously,it's been fun.
