I'm so glad it arrived OK! I saw on your profile that you're starting out with jewellery making, so I put some head pins and beads in - IIRC they are Swarovski Smiley

And I had the mug on my desk with the chocolates in them right after I bought them, and my boyfriend came over. I left him alone in my room for 2 minutes, I came back and he was polishing off the choccies!  Roll Eyes  So I had to run out and buy some more  Cheesy

I was too new to Craftster to be in this swap, so I'm spying your goodies totally green with envy--you all made some great swap packages and I hope there will be another round of this one!

I sent my package out oct.9th. I wish I had pictures of what I sent,but I have to use the scanner,and the two biggest things were too awkward to scan well.So I didn't bother,since she was going to take pics.
My mug was a tall plastic mug I transformed.I used glue and coffee beans to spell out Runs With Sissors.The words ended up covering most of the mug-coffee beans seem small until you try to write with them. I painted it with some bronze paint,and mottled it with some gold and black for a nice tortiseshell effect.It smelled nice too!Maybe not too practical to drink from,but fun. I bought a cute red demitasse cup and saucer at goodwill;it looked new.I made it into a candle,using beeswax,and a crayon to make it coffee colored.I splashed in some vanilla extract and powdered cinnamon in hopes of making it scented!I made two small notebooks.One small and simple,using a post it pad for the pages.I glued on some pretty fabric for the cover,used my little stencils and paint to spell out "coffee-yum",and twisted some silver wire around the edge.The other I used two art-y postcards for the cover.I sewed the pages together.I used as many different papers as I could-pretty stationary,wallpaper,phone book pages,stuff from my stash,ect.I took a green sock and hemmed the edges for a cup cozy-it has a small blue duct tape and fabric letters badge that says -Mine!
I had a flat glass stone-maybe quarter sized?A bigger version of those flat glass marbles you buy. Glued it to an odd metal ring.I cut some clear plastic,glued on some pretty paper to go with the rusty metal,a coffee bean,and wrote"in case of emergency break glass".Glued the glass over it.It didn't work out as a pendant like I'd planned,so it's just a doo dad.Hard to describe,but it looked neat.Took a pair of silver hoop earrings.Cut half circles of clear plastic,glued to the back.Spread on glue,filled with coffee beans,coating with strong clear glue and sealer to make them shiny.Just for fun,a barrell of monkeys ink pen.Tiny monkeys are in the barrell of the pen,it's cute! And I found a tin of mints shaped like a pairs of lips,filled with half cinnamon and half peppermint mints.
I didn't put in beverages,since at the time I was having some car trouble and couldn't make it to the coffee shop,just the grocery.Since she's just a coffee drinker,I didn't buy the yummy teas,and it seemed kind of pointless to buy Kroger coffee.I accidently left out the coffee milk recipe,but posted it here later.
Sorry about the no pics,but I wanted to post what I made anyway.Thanks!
