I received my package from MandyLikesPie today!  Grin And, according to the Post Office, she should be receiving hers today as well!


First, all of the crafted goodies together


The AMAZING tote bag that says, "Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!"


A pretty little bag that will either be used to hold my dorm key and phone while I use the tote bag at the gym, or to hold my crochet hooks, haven't decided which.



Yummy chocolate pie, which made me laugh when I unwrapped it, as you'll see once Mandy posts pictures.  Wink


And the non-crafted goodies, including some Ritter that was made in Germany, a bag of Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares, a Harry Potter chocolate frog, and some Reese's PB cups, which were hiding underneath the tote bag when I took the picture. There's also a pretty magnetic notepad which is now on my fridge, and some Raspberry Truffle lip balm.


The lip balm had an interesting warning on the back...


I never thought that someone would put LIP balm on their eyes.  Roll Eyes
Thank you sooooooo much for all of the amazing goodies, Mandy! Now I'm nervous, I hope that you like what I made you!

HOORAY! I'm SO glad you liked everything, Katy. I hope it's all your style. As I haven't gotten my package yet, I'm very intrigued by your comment about the pie.  Cheesy It should be here in a couple of hours, though! I'm camped out and waiting.

The tote bag is the thing I kept melting. Those iron-on transfers for the letters were next to impossible to use! If you were to look under the green fabric you'd see my disastrous attempt at ironing directly onto the tote bag. Hubby saved the day by suggesting putting fabric over it. And I have to add, the entire bag was done with no sewing (except to add the buttons). I used fusible web-type stuff to iron the ribbon on, and the ribbon is holding the fabric onto the bag. It's a very easy (once you stop melting crap) way to embellish a bag if you're not a seamstress.  Grin

What a great package!  I have a similar pouch/bag that Mandy made for me.  I absolutely love it!  It keeps my i-pod accessories safe and cozy.  Cheesy

Accidents are the mother of invention Grin The tote looks even better with the fabric panel!

Sad thing is some knuckle head probably did use it on their eyes and then tried to sue the company so now there is the warning on the package.

I know, just like the lady who sued McDonald's for having hot coffee. Why would you want your coffee to be lukewarm?  Huh

Here is my fantastically wonderful haul from indigo_roses. Can I just say how completely in love I am with everything? Katy, you did such beautiful work and really spoiled me.  Smiley And I seriously can't believe this is your first swap. You're a pro! On to the photos!

First, the chocolate! My two favorites ever, Ghiradelli with caramel and white chocolate Lindt truffles. And locally made chocolate called "Wilbur buds." Cheesy And an adorable card with kisses drawn on the envelope. (And the box was filled with loose kisses!)


The cutest, softest crocheted Tootsie roll-inspired scarf!


I literally jumped up and down squealing when I opened this one. A chocolate layer cake with peanut butter frosting from her own pattern! YUM!


Four  Shocked beautiful sets of beaded earrings.


And I think this is my favorite: a set of wood bead earrings, a bracelet, and a necklace that makes me feel like an exotic goddess.


Thank you so very much for the wonderful loot and for being such a fun partner!  Kiss
