I finally found the swap gallery!  Smiley  Everybody has received great packages so far.  I've never heard of carbonated candy before, but once I saw a picture of it I was totally envious! 
The stitch markers were great too.  I've just learned what they are for recently.

Yay!  Retromiad has been so patient waiting for me to receive.  First the post took forever, then i was on holiday!  But i have it now, and i love everything!

Here are the stationery items - i love stationery, and these are brilliant!



Here's a closer shot of the paper and envelopes, they are recycled and handmade and just my thing.  the paper has purple plant fibres in it, and Retromiad wrote her (cute!) letter on a piece of it!



Here are the show and tells:

orange shower smoothie (smells amazing) washcloth (knit) and bath puff
DVDs of the Shining and National Lampoon which i can't wait to watch
a lovely edition of Jane Austen's Emma
and a pack of Reece's peanut butter chocolates, which ceased to be before they made it to the picture!



You can see the cloth better here




and the piece de resistance!!!  she made me BLYTHE things!!!  Shocked
they are so awesome, and i love that she didn't theink 'eek, creepy dolls!' like most people!



Retromiad made the bags, the hat, shawl and the socks, and all without seeing a Blythe!

And look - knitting Blythe, as kitted out by Retromiad with knitting bag, bear project, needles and yarn!




I know there are loads of photos, but she made such gorgeous things.  Thanks partner!!   Grin

What cool photos! Did you buy or make the camera, zombiekilla? I always wanted to make one of those pinhole cameras, myself.

Man, that reminds me... I still have to get my photos done...

Added this post to the front page! Also now there's little *s next to the names of people whose packages have gallery posts, just to make them easier to find.

I got the camera from this little shop in Madison a few years back. Im not super pleased with it, I wish i took better pics. Sad But they sell them at the lomo website.
