My postman is evil.  Angry  He gave a package to my landlord for me to pick up after work and I was all excited....but it wasn't my whimsy jar package!!!   Cry

On the other hand, it WAS my new embroidery book.  Grin

And I also found the jar I'm going to send!!!  Not only that, but I found a very cool thing that I'm going to do to the jar, so that after nullgal gets her whimsies, she will be able to use it.  I found the tute online today and i'm SO excited!  It's going to be very cool!!!   Cool

OMG!!!

Yes, I really DID have to make it that big!  Cuz I got LOADS of stuff!  There are SOO many pics, I only loaded 10 here Smiley  More in my gallery!

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=129410

Including a dee-da-dee pic of me in clip on earrings that were in the box Smiley


Things started out innocent enough...fabric...hmm...what's under it?


CRIMENY!!!!  A LOAD of candy, whole layer of it!  Felt like I was peeling an onion...3 layers of fabric to peel back and get to it Smiley  Awesome Smiley


After the candy layer was mostly removed...a few stray Starbursts leftover Smiley


Took me 2 hours to sort through this far...and I STILL have about 2 inches worth of loose beads, buttons, paperclips, safety pins, google eyes and other miscellaneous items to work through...that's gonna take like a WEEK Smiley  LOVE IT!

OK, so here are some of my faves from the box


Pretty beads...did you make these, Tero?  Came tucked in a pretty pill box for safe travel Smiley


Teeny little sewing kit...about 2" x 1.25" x .75"  LOVE IT!!


My MOST fave item in the whole box Smiley  Mini magic 8 ball...I have questioned it several times already, and it appears to be 100% accurate!  LOL!


Collection of other tiny little faves...brass enamel painted decanter, 2 large stamps from Korea and Moscow, marbles, tiny ceramic cups and a plate, snowy owl, resin? pumpkins, world's tiniest wood thread spool with a teeny plastic rooster on it, 2 small pink charms of a phone and a fire hydrant, Monopoly hotel and house, tiny clothespin with bumble bee on it, tiny wooden flat back mushrooms, hedgehog head, and a witches hat Smiley


BUSTING ziploc of beads and beading stuff...this baggie alone is gonna take me 2 days to sort out at work!  I only get time between calls to craft or sort or read or whatever Smiley


I think this is hilarious...Tero and her love of Halloween, though I'm sure the stuffing of this eraser in this cup was caused by shifting during transit, it comes across as potentially intentional cuz I think she would wanna cram Halloween in any crevice she could manage in here Smiley  LOL!  BTW, got a nice assortment of Halloween goodies in here....plastic bugs n skellies, rings, stickers.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU so much, Tero!!!!!  I LOVE all of it!  The BEST swap package EVER!  Oh and I LOVE that fairy fabric piece you sent...do you have any more you wanna swap for?  Or, can tell me where it came from and I can try to get more myself?

Hee hee so glad you like everything. There was a ton. The " Jar" is an European pillow case that I thought you could redo into one of your cute tops.
The earrings in the hemp jewelry pouch are sterling in case you had allergies to nickle. I THINK the sliver in the polymer clay bracelets are silver as well. I stumbled across a hippie shop closing in Germany and pretty much bought enough to stock my on line store.
I did make the clay beads, I wanted to add some homemade things in there for you so those and the pumpkin pin cushion were my contributions homemade wise. Smiley
The fairy fabric I bought like a year and a half ago in a quilting shop in Germany it was hard to let go of that much of it but I knew that you would love it. Smiley
Had a ton of fun with all of this. Thanks again for doing this with me and THANK YOU for posting such a cool responce to it all.  ;)The wait was KILLING ME.... Cheesy

Oh wow!!  International fabric, I love it and will find something SUPER awesome to make with it.

So you do travel internationally, then Smiley  Wonderful!  I wish I had the time/money to do that, at least to go somewhere out of the country once every couple years would make me happy!

Thanks again!  Can't WAIT to see what everyone else gets!  And now I know I have to step up my own game in what I send back to you, Tero...I'm gonna wrack my brain some and cram it in there!
