I can't wait to see all the lovely goodies.  That is an awesome teaser!

Thanks!  I had so much fun crafting for my partner, I really wanted to keep some of the items for me!

By the way, your icon is pure love. Smiley

You're doing very well to wait, I admire your restraint! Cheesy Savour the opening pleasure at your leisure!

I can wait for pictures...I'm sure they'll be very worth the wait. Plus it's more exciting with the anticipation Grin

I'm waiting on pins and needles (or should I say leaves because they're a little softer to sit on,) waiting for these pictures.  Hurry!  Hurry!  We are all more anxious than you are, Rhonda.

Rhonda - I find it seriously amazing that there could be an unopened craft package in your house. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!?!?! LOL, just kidding.

I hope you are savoring the process as Phizzychick said.

the long awaited photos!  Grin

and this is why it took so long to get pics taken - I needed good light to get good pics, and look at how this got to me!  Roll Eyes

 

with a card (love that series of cards by the way!) that said read me first - that said read the notes before opening - so I KNEW that meant little packages inside and I needed to document the process!  Tongue

I am using little clickable pics where I can, LOL!  Smiley

first item: wonderful round box hand painted by bellalupina:




the note said that now I have my own little grove of trees to store rocks in, LOL! I like the birch trees tons!  Cheesy

and as I knew - inside the box, multiple packages with little notes of their own:
 

an ingenious bag with cushions that fit inside to place between layers of rocks!


in action:
 

but I decided that it needed to be in the box it was made for on display where others could admire it, so instead I put the rocks I use for crafts in it and put it in the box and the box on my table!
before:    after:


a smaller "rock bag" that was ingeniously decorated with a tree! I like that fabric for the leaves too!


a poly clay forest ivy dragon - with a story!


another view, and he is in his environment already!
 

and a wonderful bag that has the best saying on it! It is a quote from William Cullen Bryant.


other side has shadow leaves on it
  totally cool!

additional purchased items! talk about going all out!
a piece of petrified wood - which I had asked for only if it was convenient - and this is a great one with bark still on it, unpolished and natural and everything!


a HUGE clothe with Greenman in the middle and loverly decorations all around - still have to take another look at it!
     
my stepson will want to steal it, but it is one of my fav colors so that isn't happening!

the whole lot together, before they got spread out all over the place, LOL!


whoosh - sure this was your first swap? I am going to have to add some stuff to your package and make you open lots of little bundles too,   Wink  LOL!   Grin

I am totally tickled with this package and can't decide what I like best - though I think it is that loverly grove tree box which is why it is in my front room instead of in my office, or the little dragon which is why he found his home right away...

thank you tons bellalupina!!!

Ronda
Blessed BE!

Wow, fantastic package! The tree box is so cool! And, I love the little dragon- it was the thing I was the most curious about from the teaser Wink

Great job on your first swap, bellalupina!
