Here's my pictures of my package from Psyche! They are a little late than I had said but life with a toddler is unexpected....

onto the pics:

Pic to show how full the envelope was!


Some beautiful fabric! My fave is the striped and my sister was disappointed that there wasn't more of the pumpkin stuff, she wanted a scrub top! Wink


A huge stack of paper! I love the flowered stuff the best (so me!)


A huge stack of stickers! My son already has a bunch stuck all over the house!


Some shrinky dink paper (can't wait to use it, so many ideas!), some stamps and some beer coasters! I have never used shrinky dinks so this should be fun!


A mini jewelery kit, some matchboxes and big charms, also a box of random things! not pictured is some "mardi-gras"-ish beads that my son took off with Wink


Close-up shot of the box goodies! I love the little mugs and baskets!


Close-up of jewelery kit supplies and my very first finished fruit bracelet!! I made the bracelet as soon as I put the little monster down for his nap! It was so much fun, I can't wait to do another!

Thank you so much Psyche I love everything! I can't decide on one thing to be my favorite!! She definitely nailed all my faves right on the head!! Who's up for a round 2... Wink

Wow!
Everyone has gotten some awesome loot!

I'm impressed you guys were able to stuff that much into the packages. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to seal mine.

And here's what I received from slingmomma!

First up, the fabric: a few bigger chunks, then the smaller pieces (which were prettily tied with a black ribbon), and then the really small pieces (still shown in their bag!)


And then we have notions - zippers, stretch stuff, bias tape, and ribbon - and a couple balls of nice soft yarn (in 2 different colours). I think the white would make an especially nice scarf.


And then we've got the "paper stuff"  - a bunch of big wallpaper samples, smaller scrapbooking papers, the baggie of more scrapbooking papers (textured paper, etc!), and some stickers too (including one Germany one for me to use in my post-Europe scrapbook!)


And finally, the bits that don't fit into those categories... we've got wooden bows (haven't decided the perfect use for these, but I'm into painting wooden things, so I'm sure I'll find it!), a Japanese bag, and a "jar of whimsies" - some pretty neat buttons (including some vintage looking horoscope sign buttons), glittery things & gems, ring watches.. and more in there!


Thanks slingmomma! It was a fun swap Smiley

Here are the goodies I recieved from Foreversandals!!! We had so much in common - it was great to swap with her!!!

First - here is all the loot together...


Here are the close-ups

Some great fabric and such cute patterns - I love the first one especially - so vintage -can't wait to make something for my little girls.


Next - are some ribbons, scrapbooking notions, lace, 2 really pretty pins, a how to knit book and some knitting needles - and best of all some buttons!!!!


And last but definitely not least - scrapbook stickers and a crochet hook holder (we decided together that we both wanted to craft an item for eachother) the holder had 3 crochet hooks and whats even better one of the hooks I don't even have yet - whoo hoo!!


Thanks once again - its been fun!!!
