Great packages guys!

And don't worry too much about those cranes Megan, they have multiple layers of sealer on them so they should hold up to general abuse Tongue

Since DangitJess already posted pictures, i will just put a few up.
But first, I want to make it very clear that my partner did not flake, so dont hold that against her. I didn't want to be rude or mean about it which is why nothing was really said. But to say the least, I felt very let down about the quality of what I received. After talking to meganlorraine about it, she recommended using an angel, so thats what we did!

Everything was especially nice, I have so many ideas already for everything that she sent.
These were my favorite big pieces. The leaf is huge and sooo gorgeous! And I love the "y", yellie is my nickname that everyone uses!!

Those purple ones at the bottom are wood I think, they feel really cool. On the top left they have all sorts of patterns on them.

I think that all the ones except the left side are mixed glass beads. Then some cutie buttons and charms


I really loved everything!! I hope no one is bothered that we did this. Thanks so much meganlorraine and dangitjess!!!

Allow me to inundate you with glorious pics of my sparkly lootz. My favourite postie - the package delivery man - arrived today and showed me how Meganlorraine outdid herself. She went above and beyond to fulfil my wishlist.


All together - Shrinky Dinks (I can't find here), mini cable wire, sterling silver wire, flower confetti, Japanese word charms, flower cameos

Ok there were more chocolates to begin with but I muched while I opened  Tongue

Beautiful square and round gemstone beads with clear glass bubbles (sadly one broke in transit - a sacrifice to the postage gods  Sad),  glass and metal beads and the coloured ones are bells!, large stone beads and pendants and adorable buttons, a multitude of beautiful gemstone and glass beads, silver earring wires, more word charms, lapis beads wire wrapped beads and what looks like garnet beads

And here is a lovely Wisty surprise! Hairclips.

This swap has rocked so hard, I am thrilled. Thanks you Megan for putting it together and for being an awesome partner.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Oh sad! I hate when things break! The glass bubbles were actually from a necklace of my Great Grandmother's that I took apart. I love sending her stuff around, because it's like I'm preserving her memory all around the world, as silly as that sounds. I thought you might enjoy them. Anyway I'm so glad you liked everything!
