Silvana, thank you!!(I don't know if these pictures are going to work from Picasa Web, so if they don't, I'll go back and fix them.....)


I had the crummiest day and I got home and my box was there!! It was a real pick-me-up and taking photos gave me something to think about, so it was way awesome and thank you, thank you, thank you!


She wrote me a sweet little letter (and don't worry - my handwriting isn't much better!)



This frame is awesome! You can't really see it here, but the butterflies and puppy do this sort of 3D thing:


There's a scent-burner with extra tea lights (which is awesome!) and this RADICAL necklace that's crocheted (I'm pretty sure). It's so beautiful!


Here's a close up of the necklace and cameo:


There's this little pot that's all opalescent with the cutest little legs,


And it's filled with sweet little quotes and affirmations, all rolled up!


Then there's my favorite -- The Star from Stardust! Here's her box:


And inside:

She's cute!

And MORE!


I'm amazed at this box, it's a fuzzy and blue and has a bow on it!


And inside, along with this sweet little bracelet she sent:



And, lastly! A pattern that I can't wait to try and make (something I've never done before!), which is next to the frame again, but it's the only shot I had of it:



I'm completely amazed - this is way more than I expected! Thank you for being the best (quickest, apparently) first-time swap partner ever! I promise to put my box out ASAP - everything's just gone all stupid lately.

Thank you!

I got so carried away with this.  I hope it is ok that I went a tiny bit over. haha if it makes it better some of the non crafted items were super inexpensive and or free haha.

I love the idea of the affirmations in the pot Smiley
And the necklace is very beautiful!
That pattern is a great one to start with - and very flattering cut for a bigger girl


Great first package! I can't wait for more Smiley

Thanks ladies!
The pot was what took the longest it seems.
I spent a few days finding all sorts of little phrases and quotes.  If anyone is interested in what I found, I would be happy to post them.
