Yay!  I received the most wonderful package from Jessicakes.  She went above and beyond the call of duty and sent me a priority box chocked full of goodies!  Paper, plastic canvas, playing cards, ribbon, a white flower,  an old record, s skeins of yarn, tissue paper, seed beads, sequins, bright colored cable ties.  My favorite out of the bunch is the leftover fabric she used to make me a scarf from the fall swap. 

Jessica you can be my swap partner anytime!!!

I'm behind in posting pics, as my digi cable has taken a vacation, although I'm not sure where. 

Thank-you so much!!

lol, I forgot to add a note about the pen.  I got it as a gag gift in a "thank you" bucket for our pen pal thing, and then I realized that I'd probably end up throwing it out at the end of the year, so I thought I'd send it along!  Smiley

- a knitting knobby
- some gigantic pearly glass blobs
- green and gold bernat boa
- some navy lion brand thick and quick (is it sad that I can identify yarn w/o a label?  heh)
- some blue/grey chenille yarn
- fingering weight white yarn
- light blue caron simply soft
- multi colored acrylic
- and two skiens of some soft dusty rose colored yarn!  (is it caron simply soft, too?)

I'm glad you like the stuff I sent, Heroinechic!   Smiley  Those buttons were my favorites, too.  And I saw that you crochet, so I figured I'd send some yarn that I never got around to using. Wink

Any-woo.  I got my package from Mochiko today! *claps*  Here's everything altogether:



There's a bunch of really pretty, soft yarn (Yay!) and four really pretty silk (I think?) pieces with embroidered flowers and birds on them.  Here's a close-up on my favorite one:



Everything's gorgous!  Thank you so much! Kiss

Haha I thought I'd be a smartass and send a stupid amount of yarn, I'm glad you like it I was worried about this swap! I believe that is Caron Simply soft.  The pearly glass blobs make about 100 different things, see all the threads on the Many Incarnations of Glass Marbles, endless possibilities!

and since skyra's camera is in an unknown safe place (i do that all the time!), here are pictures of what i sent her. there are more pictures, but that's just cause i was more patient with picture taking that day, and spread it out more.

paper stuff

crafty stuff

and vintage textile stuff

I'm glad it reached you ok!  I was starting to wonder if it got lost or something.  Cheesy  I'm glad you can actually use some of the stuff in it too!  Cheesy 

I don't know what to call those little wood sign hanging things either.  I thought I would try wood burning, and bought a 5 pound bag of those things, and well lets just say I have LOTS left. LOL  Cheesy
