Astica and I swapped last Sunday and I love my package! Unfortunately, I was in Ottawa for four days, then back home, but now I'm back in the city, I'll post pictures as soon as I can! Early next week? I love everything she gave me!

I received from TAOJ ...I love everything...
All the goodies: knitted hat, mittens, socks - knitted scrubbers (almost too cute to use) - frame and notecards - cute rubber ducky 

My little guy loves his new gear!  The socks fit perfectly (I know you thought they might be big, TAOJ, but he has big feet! Everything is so soft and cute!) 

I forgot the supply list at home, but this was all for under $5
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Mimi, your boy is just adorable! I really thought the socks would be big, but now I'm really glad I made them big  Cheesy  It has been great swapping with you.

dang!  so worth the wait!

It's official - all packages have arrived and this swap is officially closed and moved over to the archive of swaps totally finished!

And in the spirit of bargain hunting I have to add that I spent the morning at a rummage sale - and boy did I make a killing - but I am kicking myself in the butt that I forgot to get a blender - I want to make home made paper and forgot to bag a blender... grrrr Angry  But on the flip side I did remember to get a toaster oven so I can make melty bead things and not stink up the house!

I also bought a knitting machine and ribber there yesterday to add to my knitting machine collection....
Whew!  $100 down for the church but dang I made out like a complete and total bandit!!!

Wow those are some amazing packages! I must say craftydeb, I'm extremely jealous of your amazing finds.... you are truly a bargain queen! I think I just might have to find all the rumage sales and such in my area!  Cheesy

So have you thought about the next round yet???

Amazing job everyone!!
