Myself, my 2 daughters and my son have received an incredible package from Mimik, it was just like christmas here yesterday when I got home from work, paper was flying everywhere! Since it was the evening the lighting in the pictures wasn't the best, but I wanted to get one before everything was strewn throughout the house!



and with the lid open on the jewelry box



mimi should definately get a prize for bargain hunting! ODD got gel pens and a tin of lip gloss, YDD got Hello Kitty gel pens, I tried to get them from her, but she wasn't giving them up and tatoos, she is proudly sporting the flower one to school today  Cheesy  DS got Cars tatoos, he has lightening on, a Cars dry wipe board and growing things. Now for me I got a lovely jewelry box, lip gloss, mascara, eye shadow, strawberry shortcake ribbon and the birds that YDD claimed as I won't let her get a real one  Roll Eyes  Thank you Mimi  Smiley

Taoj - I'm so glad everyone liked everything.  I actually came in a little under budget but I think if I account for tax, I'm probably right at budget.

Here's my list:
$2.49 Wooden box, Joann's, 40% off
free from stash:  acrylic paint, a handful of sequins and small pic of marilyn monroe
.39 paper lining inside of box
.25 gel pens, lip gloss, sparkle tats, cars tats, cars dry erase, 2 birds, all from Target $1 spot, all 75% off
.25 vintage ribbon - sort of from stash...I got this a while ago - a got a bunch of pieces .25 each at a hospital resale shop. 
Lip gloss - Free! After clearance price plus using a coupon for $2.00 off at Walgreens.
Mascara - Free! After clearance price plus using a coupon for $2.00 off at Walgreens
Eye shadow - Free at CVS after coupon!

Grand total $4.88!

Oh, yes, I forgot about the dino growy things - sort of from stash.  I bought a bunch of packets of these for 10 Cents at a thrift shop last year.  So, $4.98 - closer to budget than I thought!

Well, you know, this swap came at the perfect time b/c of all the after-holiday clearances.  I'm not sure I could have done this well any other time of year, but just to toot my own horn, I estimate that my $5 package has $40 worth of stuff in it (mostly from all the free makeup).  I do wish, however that I could have found more craft materials at a bargain so I have crafted more of it.
