I got my package today.  I'm not dancing this time.  BECAUSE I'M IN SHOCK!!!!  I can't believe this is an ANGEL package because it's nothing short of amazing!  Camelama honestly spoiled me.  Even DH was really impressed with all that she sent, and that's not an easy thing to do. 

First of all I pull out a plump terry cloth tote bag...


except turns out as I pull out all the goodies, it's *que the music* more than meets the eye!
It flipp around into a friggin beach towel!!!!!



here's what I pulled out before realizing it was a beach towel-


and here's what happened once I opened each thing inside the thing (I told you SPOILED ROTTEN!)

Let me see if I can break this on down for ya:
the blue & white gingham thing up there in the top left, that's a dry bag that fits nicely into the wet towel/tote to keep things, well dry of course  Cheesy on top of that is a wide array of handmade mermaid cards.  each one is of a mermaid going about her day.  my favorite one is one where the mermaid has a bunch of sea pets on leashes  Grin.  Under those are a bunch of cute little magnets, there's a baggy of fruit snacks (in the first picture you can see a box of some local fruity delights, YUM-O! they make me think of the turkish delights in Narnia, lol) there's a cute little book of pirate tats, all the way on the bottom left you can see a bandana that she tea dyed and fabric painted a compass rose (I had thought she bought it printed, it looks really nice) back at the top there are a couple of really adorable store bought cards, under that were two zipper pouches she made and within those held a sail boat pin (sitting on top of the pouch in the pic) she found in a 2nd hand shop in canada and the other had a vintage buckle that I'm in love with... here's a crappy up-close shot of it , next to those is a really cute beaded bracelet, she said that the beads reminded her of seaweed, which makes sense, lol.  Then there are a set of more really neat cards, a treasure chest that grows 600% in water (already in a bowl now) some swedish fish oh and in the middle of the pic is a spool of spongebob ribbon (who lives in a pineapple under the sea...) and a Washington keychain.

Okay, I think that's everything.  Man, I'm almost disappointed that it's over!  The long wait for a sea swap package was most certainly worth the wait.  Thank you Camelama, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY WATER FLOGGED HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yay!  I'm so glad it made it there after being so gluttonous re: cotton candy at Dollywood.  Smiley

Heh, my favorite of the mermaids was the yoga one, because zomg, I was actually able to draw the Ohm freehand!  I was SO impressed by that.  Smiley

The bandana was so much fun, I learned all about tea-dying and stencilling and fabric paints.   Also a ZOMG because I can't believe I did the letters freehand and they turned out so well.  I look at it now and I want to re-do the innards but all in all I was happy with it.  Heh. 

I just had SO MUCH FUN doing the little zipper bags, so so fun!  Now I have to learn how to do real lining, and how not to break needles on the zipper. (SIGH!) And to remember to take the time to put on the zipper foot.  (SIGH!)  Heh.

YAY!

It was fun crafting for you, and it actually made me make stuff out of my comfort zone.

Oh hey, I took pictures of the individual cards, they're here:

Oh I'm glad you have pics of each one.  I was going to try to do that later as my memory card filled up while taking the ones earlier.  I just got a new camera and my old memory card is the wrong kind now and I only have a small SD one for the new one.  I need to just go get a gig  Tongue

Oh! And the swedish fish are because, well, sea swap, but also because where I live is very very Nordic in heritage (fishing and lumber industries brought a lot of Nordic folks out here).   Ya shure you betcha, yummy swedish fish!
