I received a fantastic angel package from jdb833 a few weeks ago! Unfortunately I wasn't able to collect it from home until the weekend but I now present to you lots of photos:


A pretty handkerchief that the jar was wrapped up in along with a load of chocolates that were also helping to cushion the jar.


The jar itself! I didn't take a photo before I opened the jar and I wasn't able to get everything back inside for this shot. I don't know how jdb822 managed to pack it all in!


A pretty shell necklace that was in the jar.


A cross stitch kit! This is great because I do some cross stitch but hadn't been able to bring my supplies with me to university. Cheesy


Most of the whimsies spread out on two pretty handkerchiefs that were also in the jar. My favourites are a rubber duckie that lights up, a really cute little sheep model and a personalised stamp to use with the sealing wax that jdb822 sent me.

Thank you so much for a wonderful swap package and for angelling, jdb822! Cheesy

What a cool package !! Love the hankies, you can do some really wonderfully crafty things with them.
Special note on the sealing wax just for the dumb asses such as myself that had never used it before and assumed it was just like candle wax.

Sealing wax will burn the living %$#@*# !!! out of you. Smiley It is NOT like candle wax.

For everyone in the world that knew that may you smile and laugh at my 3rd degree burns  Grin For those of you who did not know that ....You're Welcome. Wink

Well I hope my first partner photog_in_plaid doesn't mind that I recycled the jar she sent me my whimisies in! I'm glad you liked everything, Jrain =) It was fun putting another jar together.

As for the sealing wax, yes it does burn like hell! But it's so much fun. I use it on bunches of things, even ATCs.

Haha yeah Photog, I couldn'y find a jar quite as good as the one you sent mine in and I'm all about recycling, so I figured I'd pass it on!

You might see something else familiar in the jar also...tiny handcuffs. I LOVED the ones you sent me, so much so that I made earrings out of them. I was dying to get my hands on another pair when I came across this vending machine in a grocery store that had the tiny handcuffs! It only took a couple trys before I got a pair out haha.

I'm so sad that I missed this swap...  Are there plans to run another one soon?  I read through all of this lovely gallery and I didn't see it mentioned anywhere...
