I also did a personal with AsphaltQueen...for a jar of whimsies!  I didn't have a spot open to join the swap, so she agreed to swap with me...and man...I'm blown away!!!! Here's the jar, and the cute fabric it was wrapped in:


A crocheted flower that was in there, I like it so much, it is now on my inspiration board!!


and this cutie frog was in it too, and he now lives on my monitor:


Its hard to get a picture of the littler stuff, but everything is awesome!  I got a little tin with all sorts of watch parts, a phone/mp3 holder with a little pawprint button(!!), and a whole big bunch of charms and ribbons and various other awesomeness!  Thanks so much, AsphaltQueen!  You rock!!!

hehe, I know!  My faith in the personal swap has been restored!  I did a whole bunch last May, and got flaked on 4 times in one month, so I've been personal swap shy for a while.  I'm sooooo glad I did these, though!!!

Flakers bite!

I'm so glad you liked everything Superhooker!  I had so much fun with our swap and can't wait for the next one!

Here is the most beautiful-soft-cuddly-oodly-ooo Hyperbolic crocheted scarf.  It's made with Lion Homespun in one of my favorite shades of Green, almost Craftster Green.  Look how it matches the (blurry) bag I picked up at Tarjay a few weeks ago!  (covering my non-make-up'd face!)



And we did a little bead swap too last minute!



Thanks again Superhooker - you really are a Super Hooker!  Looking forward to putting together your next swap package!!!

Holy cow, it really does match!!!  That is awesome! 
I was afraid I made it a little too long/big, but I wanted it to be fluffy like the one in the picture.  It looks really cute on you!

Yay, I got my package from MonkeyThumb!

Inside of that box was a pretty sculptured metal box with http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_5298.JPG

And inside that box was a lovely, dainty vintage embroidered flower, some clock faces, and a lock and key shape carved in goldstone! Outside of the metal box was a huge amount of embroidery thread, decorative beaded wire, a tiny German book with interesting images and paper, and a little Canadian maple leaf enameled dish. Plus a note on giraffe-paper, which was an added bonus.  Cheesy Thanks so much for selecting all this great stuff from your stash for me!!  Grin

Omg you all will not believe this...when I first saw this I thought of my mom.  She has had this little box for so many years and now it is mine.  Well I found it then I could not remember where it was posted, so tonight this pop up.  I could not resist....monkey thumb  check this out



Thanks for looking.

Whoa, that's kind of weird! Gorgeous box, I wonder what the background of it is!

Superhooker, you scored, and that scarf you made is beautiful! It sucks that you had so many flakers, but I'm a believer in crafty karma, so you know you'll be rewarded in the end!
