Yay! I'm so glad he liked it all!

I did some stalking and found his myspace so I copied a photo and cut around his face and found an existing photo on google of someone with Claudio. So I cut out her hubby's face and pasted it over, textured it a little, and darkened it and just messed around. It's not perfect, but good enough!

I'm glad the buttons are popular. I love making buttons, they're fun.

Also, the wallet. I was going to make one then we lost power for ten hours so we went to the store and I saw that one so I decided it would do. Cheesy

Okay, so here is what MaxParadise sent to my boyfriend, Mike.

An awesome super thick handkerchief with his band's name embroidered on it!

A cookbook! We both love this! We love to cook and grill so this is perfect!

Inside Mike's very own beer related cook book!

Beer wall art! He can't wait to put these up. He was totally getting a kick out of these. MaxParadise did an AWESOME job!

The Can!

The Bottle!

The Mug! Mike's favorite.

A little tiny spoon and cassette tape. Mike calls me his "little spoon" and well cassette tape...I'll let you figure that one out. He's already attached the spoon to his guitar so I can be at his shows even if I'm at home.

Harry Potter origami paper! From book pages! This is great! Mike is hugely into origami. On our first meeting/date he gave me a box full of origami. We both loooooove Harry Potter.

Family Guy coasters! Another huge hit!

I think that is all, I'll check later and see ifI can get a shot of Mike WITH something. Haha.

what cool stuff. I wish I would have thought of that stuff when I did the couples swap for cassettetape & her bf. Smiley That's some really cool stuff. I especially like the HP origami paper (thats just cool. end of story) & I like the cook book as well.

Great packages. That lingerie set is great. Wink

Was that bookmark from One Skein Wonders? I love that pattern. Use it all the time as gifts. Cheesy I never added the beads, though. It makes a difference. I think I will next time. (And if this isn't the pattern, I'll just feel stupid, lol).

My swap partner received hers today. I couldn't take pics as my digital camera is in repair until Wednesday. Embarrassed So, hopefully, she'll post some. I've got that swap anxiety thing going on. I hope she liked everything.

Hi, yes, the pattern is from One Skein Wonders, it's one of my favourite books along with 101 Designer One Skein Wonders.  It was my first time using 2mm (US 0 I think) needles but it was pretty easy to knit.  Thanks for the compliments guys. 

And wow, have I been missing out on a great gallery, I love the stencilled t-shirts, the beer soap (soap, made out of BEER!) the artwork.  Everyone is so talented and a lot of work has gone into these packages.

so, here is the great package dbear sent my brother, Sa'ar.
he was ecstatic, and took most of the pictures himself (except for the ones with himself in them, of course)

a wonderful System of a Down messenger bag:

two crocheted hats (after watching Monty Python's Meaning of Life he came to the conclusion that he should wear hats more often):

a wonderful duct tape wallet with all kinds of sayings written in and on it:

a GREAT Jack Skellington (from the Nightmare Before Christmas) T-shirt, wich he wears the second it gets out of laundry (since thursday he already wore it  twice)

and last but by no means least, a CD:

which he loved

thank you so much, dbear,

and thank you MaxParadise for organizing this great swap!!![/color]

That Jack Skellington t-shirt is amazing!  Still eagerly waiting to receive!
