Aw, thanks!  It was so much fun to put together!  I don't buy wholesale often, but I do have a HUGE bead collection (because I work for a bead store) that I rarely do anything with.  I figured I'd share the love.  Some of the beads I bought expressly for the package, but a lot of them were from my own collection - as were all the wires, crimps, etc. 

It was a lot of fun to put together, and you're right, yelley - I did get totally excited about labeling every compartment.  Especially the ones that had more than one type of bead in them.   Grin  Total nerd.

Yeah, the octopus was a pattern from http://www.futuregirl.com/shop/patterns.htm - I had seen someone post theirs on the toys board, and knowing how much yelley likes cephalopods, I had to make it.  Smiley

Yay!  I'm so glad you liked everything, and sorry the magnets came undone.  That is really strange!  I tested them time and again before shipping them!  Argh.  Oh well; if you can fix 'em (I'm sure you can), be my guest!

I'm so glad it made it!  I was so worried yesterday.  Oh, and sorry there wasn't a letter!  Haha.

Though my messy house is no proof, I am a neat-freak at heart.  I love to be organized, and I'm getting there slowly but surely.  My craft area is all labeled and organized, so that's at least one thing... Smiley

Oh, I can't wait for my package!  I mean, I CAN wait... but I'm really excited.  I'm sure it's going to be awesome.  This is a really fun swap.  I'm glad I decided to do the share-a-craft, and even more glad that I have a partner who had a desire to learn it.  I hope you put the stuff to good use, yelley!

I was lamenting over what beads to throw together, and my sister-in-law (mcbenno) said, "it's like what we tell people at the store: it doesn't matter what beads YOU think would go well together, because the person you're giving it to is not going to put them together how you had envisioned anyway."  Good advice.  I hope I've at least got a decent starting point for you, yelley. 

Oh, and I gave you one of those mother of pearl elephant pendants because I loved them so much when they came into the store that I bought 3.  I love elephants.  Smiley

You wrap everything so nicely!  I started to, and then I thought, "I'm tired, but I want to get this done...so I'll wrap quickly."

I wrap Christmas presents nicely, but only because they sit under the tree for weeks with people occasionally looking at them... Smiley

Ooh, I can't wait!

As I always say, there is a difference between being highly organized and being a neat freak. I'm very organized yet my house is always in a state of chaos since I'm not a neat freak. But there is a method to the madness Grin
