Wow! What a gorgeous quilt! I also have serious quilter envy.

And that salve in Buns' package... It's so cool that you made it, catpants. Beautiful scarf, too.

Right, second try!

Varandra sent me an awesome parcel its totally awesome, as I'm sure will agree!

Firstly, some rather appropriate stamps

A 'just opened' view

Next a handmade notebook, made with some totally marvellous recycled papers, I've photographed my favourites.

So pretty

This beautiful wooden necklace was inside this little gift box, made from an old photo. Its a genius idea! There were several other gift boxes in the parcel too, they shall be put to good use.

Rosehip powder (yummy) with three tiny, beautiful smelling candles!

Wooden buttons! I cannot wait to try these out, they are so great.

Next, a purple fabric covered file box for storing all sorts of lovely natural finds in!

I especially liked this parcel as there was lots of yummy food in it! To start with, this delicious hazelnut flavoured cream. Nom nom nom

Root vegetable crisps Smiley

And some sweets

There were also two natural chewy bars, one licorice and one raspberry but they both go snaffled by The Boyfriend before a could get photos. They had pandas on Smiley

Very tasty crackers too!

What is it?

Its a gorgeous bag, covered with plants and bees. It's been in almost constant use since it arrived.

A natural fibre bowl. Its sat on my desk storing all my safety pins at the moment.

And finally, a pair of awesome Thai Fisherman's trousers. They are totally fantastic and I will use them for doing my yoga in the back garden. Apologies for not having an action shot!

Thank you Varandra, Thank you so much!

Oh, I've always wanted a pair of those trousers...are they comfy?  I always worry about the "one size fits all" sizing on most of them...

Those wooden buttons are genius!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

Glad you like it all! (:
So the post office put butterfly stamps on? That really is appropriate!  Smiley

Personal swap friendly. Friendly in general.

I got my package like a week and a half ago, and have just been too lazy to post pictures! My partner, Tristitia, knows I loved everything, though!
First, a purse she knitted from old t-shirts! It's so cool and stretchy, and doesn't feel t-shirty at all! It also has a nice "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" patch on it!!

Next, some tea, some natural lip gloss, a cute little vase for flowers that you hang on a window or something, & a book of ways to save the planet! The fabric-covered book is a journal she made, with paper bags and nature pictures as the pages!

& last, yaaaaaaaaaaaarn! Tons of it! She spun it herself, and it is fantastic!!

This swap was really fun! Thanks again to Tristitia and to the organizers!

Favorite moment of the year?  That commercial when m8888888 dropped her towel and jumped naked into the arms of Tony Danza.

wow!  That yarn is awesome!  and the bag...it looks totally soft and cozy.

It would be cool to hang the vase on a mirror...then it would look like twice as many flowers!

Love all that yarn. I'm getting serious yarn envy. Wink And that bag is awesome - I never would have guessed that it was made out of t-shirts.

WOW! Kenners, you were totally spoiled! I love that the packages are staying with the theme. And I would never have guessed that the bag that Tristitia made was from t-shirts either, too cool!

Here is my super-sweet package from Superhooker! It is chock full of nature-y goodness!

First up, two knitted dish cloths (YES!), some interesting pod-seed things (ohhh!) and some wicked awesome rings!(YIPPIEE!)

A better shot of the rings. I'm wearing the leaves on each finger as we speak (or read)

And this part is truly amazing and cool. A flower-press made from oak!

She actually recycled and trimmed cardboard to go between the boards. I am very excited to use it!

Thanks so much superhooker! I love it all! (I hope you get mine soon!)

I "Wist" you'd stalk me...

If you're gonna dine with them cannibals, well sooner or later darling you're going to get eaten.
