Okay, bargain hunters, I think my swap partner is the QUEEN of all Bargain Hunters!! She should have a freakin crown made of second hand treasures and coupons.

 Shocked Shocked Shocked

I received my package already! I was super surprised that it made it here in only 1 day! Way to go Canada Post!

So here are my pics of the fabulous stash Slingmomma sent to me;







Here's a group shot (I assume you are all quite jealous right now)



Some crafty supplies and stickers for my kids (which will soon be on my walls, I'm sure  Wink )



I LOVE these fat quarters so much!



Cute froggy panels



Fab gift tags!



This pouch is fantastic! and the matching box. In the back is the leftover fabric (which is beautiful.)



And my favorite; this tote that has pockets outside and in and a key latch! (Please disregard my frumpiness. I am in Canada and it is damn cold therefore it is sweatshirt day)



Are you kidding me?!!?!!



I am blown away by this package and now I'm a bit nervous about my package. It will be hard to match all this wonderful stuff! Slingmomma was a great swap partner and if she decides to join another swap, I envy her partner.

 Cool You Rock!!

WOW  Shocked  That is great for a $5 package, I thought it was going to be a $10 one. We bow to Queen Slingmamma  Wink  I love the fabric for the bag and the fat quarters, especially that frog holding an artichoke!

Ok, I thought I did pretty good with my $5 limit- but I see I have a thing or two (or three or four) to learn  Grin

daggum it!  I need to get in that craft room!  I thought I was going but decided to have Logan read to me instead.  I do have the weekend though - and a slew of ideas.  I just need to decide which route to go here.... I have enough to do two swap packages so I need to narrow it down and then move on.

I did score a really pretty piece of material for 50cents today - a half yard.  It is so pretty I don't hardly want to cut in to it but I know I have to sooner or later!

Yes!  A breakdown!  Please!  We really do want to know the details!
There will definitely be future rounds of this swap.  It is my favorite one of all the swaps I have been in so far.  I have not looked on the calendar yet to figure out the future date - but it is definitely coming!
