Today has been a happy day! I received the most awsome package from RondaS!
She claimed me for rocks, stones and beads and my oh MY at the Goodies she sent my way!
Here is a wide shot to show all the stones, and beads and the white tea towels she threw in cause she knew i was on the hunt for some! (thank you~!)

They are absolutely GORGEOUS! I opened at my Mom's house and we both couldnt stop "oooh" ing and "ahhhhh" ing the entire time!
Here are a couple more shots of some of my favorites closer up Smiley Its quite difficult to chose favorites really as they are all so wonderful!

I am SO HAPPY she included a little note with each set to tell me what they were. I tell ya, she has taught me a lot in this swap and she is on her way to official "rock Guru" in my book!

I dont know a lot about rocks, other than what I think is pretty, i dont know the meanings behind each one for sure...but i think they certainly bring happiness! or at least they did/do to me  Wink
Thanks RondaS! Kiss

I am so glad you like! I must confess that I started putting things in bubble wrap and got a little carried away.  Roll Eyes   But I had a great time putting it all together for you. Just so you know - that carnelian is not very high grade,  Embarrassed but I love the variation in the colors the way it is.  Wink

I want to see pics of finished pendants!  Grin  and if you want any more info on the stones, let me know.

looking at the picture, I think I sent you something that is associated with all the elements, which was totally accidental, LOL!  Have fun!

RondaS has completely spoiled me as well!  She claimed me for embroidered pillowcases for my guest room and she really over-delivered!

See how perfectly they match the bed?!


And a close up of the perfect stitching:


She also threw in a few baby charms as an extra!  My favorite is the tiny mug!


Thank you so much Ronda - they are absolutely perfect and much more than I ever expected!

I was interrupted from my flute practice by the postman this morning. I normally hate to be interrupted but he had my package from la_chrystelle!! Flute practice was forgotten as I eagerly opened the package. I loved everything she sent me, and she spoiled me!

First, is the little make up bag, which is perfect, and will stop my make up getting ruined as it floats around in my bag.


Next, I saw the ribbon. It's all perfect. My favourite is the wide black with the white detail. It's gorgeous!


There's this lovely black flower, which the photo really doesn't do justice.


Three different fabrics, and some lace, which are all lovely, and I can't wait to use them.


Finally, lots of lovely paper!


So my first experience of a swap package has been absolutely amazing. All I have to do now is get mine out the door!

Thank you la_chrystelle, once again. I love everything!

I received my awesome painting from Im Sew Silly yesterday.

It is painted on cork board.  She sent a note saying it could be used as a message board  but there's no way I would ever put a thumb tack in this!  She did such an awesome job on this painting!  She captured "me" completely!  Thanks so much I'm Sew  Silly!

Full picture (already on my wall):
