They are kinder eggs! I love them and it is a Smurfette pin. It's about equal rights Cheesy

Don't forget tomorrow is the send out date. If you are going to be late, please pm me

Oh yeah, Sugarysweet-my hubby instantly stole the pill charm you sent. He was so happy-that's the good news. The bad news is I think he deleted my pictures. Do you have any of the jar all wrapped up? I'm gonna take some more of my loot.

teeheehee, The Happy Pill!! Too bad when I took pictures it was covered by a button and I didn't realize it.  Sad
I have all the pictures on my flickr if you want to use any of them or anyone wants to look at them.  It's listed in my profile & here's a link.

~~~edit~~~

I see I should have kept reading.  Wink

There are alot of buttons, but they are mixed in with the charms in kittykills picture.  Wink
I bought a bag with lots of button sizes to fill in the little spaces in the jar, so it would be as full as it could be.  Grin

check out my pictures on flickr, I have anything in groups before they got all mixed up. lol

Okay, so FINALLY I got to go home and open my box! I am soooooo happy with my stuff. I packed it all back up already so nobody(husband) will swipe anything(candy) while I am at work tomorrow. Here are the pictures.......I have to put my favorites first! B TW...how many pics am I allowed to post, because I am about to break that rule!


My favoritist favorite! I was so bummed that there were only six of the cutest pins...but then...

She sent me the whole box! thank you soo much littlebiskit! I have been wanting some pins like these!


The most precious little glittery decorated glass butterfly. You really hit the nail on the head! I love butterflies!


The box loot! Christmas fabrics, and Little Mermaid knits.....I love knits! How did you know?


My beautiful jar! thinking*mine, hmmhmmhmm, all mine*

The whole shebang. There is so much stuff that I don't think I can name it all. Tons of bottlecaps (I have been itching to try them), beads, barrettes, craft trim, charms, the tiniest little colored pencils,really cool disco ball ornaments?, tiny spools of thread, computer keys (I dont know if I can figure that craft out), chocolate sweets including my all time favorite...dark chocolate covered Altoids (I seriously was talking to a coworker about how good they are today), a flower shaped candle, googly eyes, an incredible sculpted metal drangonfly magnet, lots of tinkerbell pins (my oldest girl's room was decorated with Tinkerbell), a tiny worry doll, foreign coins, a cross stitch kit, ornaments, and last but not least (at all) is two bags for my girls with the cutest prints on them.....panda polka dots and cherries, and yarn with plastic needles to help channel their crafty energy!
I cannot thank littlebiskit enough! I don't know why you were anxious. I am soooo happy with my box, and I can't wait to unpack it again tomorrow!

In all fairness, the metal dragonfly magnet was made by an Eastern European gentleman who had a booth at our State Fair.  He's a para-olympic (sp?) weight lifter, in a wheel chair.  But he's hilarious, and makes the coolest magnets and things with scrap aluminum. 

I'm so glad you liked everything!  That pin-cushion was my first bottlecap pincushion, I'd been meaning to make them for a long time, I hope you like how it turned out.  I wanted to find flowers for it, so it would look like a terracotta pot, but the butterflies had to do.

The fabric was mostly to fill the box, I realize some of the scraps were small, but I know you said you liked Christmas stuff (and I never use Christmas fabric, it was inherited from a friend) and The Little Mermaid is honestly not one of my fav Disney movies (same deal with that) but I thought maybe your girls would like it for something?  I know the scraps are small.

So... DO you have Pearson's candy where you are?  LOL.  I'm always curious.

I LOVE the pincushion! It made me think of butterflies flitting about on a grassy hill. I adore it!
Now, some of the Pearson's candy was familiar. I have seen it, but it's not as common as KitKats. There are lots of places here that sell kind of obscure candies or stuff from away, though. That could have been where I have seen it. Regardless, I can't wait to tear into it tomorrow.
I am going ot bed now to get my beauty sleep for another grueling day tomorrow.

Thank you so much again. I had a blast with my first swap. I also learned that delayed gratification can be just as satisfying! That sounded weird didn't it? I must be too tired.
I will be doing another swap sometime. Maybe try a different theme, but definitely come back to this one later!

Success!  I'm glad you had fun, that was my main hope!  And I hope your girls will like their bags!

G'night!  I'm goin' to bed too, I was just waiting up to see if everything got to you in one piece, now I'm going to crash too.
