I'll say this last thing on the subject and then turn the board back over to it's intended use ...lol.  One year Santa brought my youngest (the history/education major) a fishbowl crammed full of Sharpies.  She was about 15 or 16 years old.  She didn't even notice her other gifts and actually kept her "prized possession" under lock and key for months.  My husband thought she was nuts but I totally got it.

Good grief, that was an awesome package.. I am just now finished with my stuff and ready to send to SallyB. It took me a while to get all my little goodies together, and finish my handmade nonsense Smiley

I can't wait to see what everyone made!

I received my package from tdrios today!  I wasn't expecting it, so I was thrilled and surprised when I found it beside my front door.  This was her first swap, and she sent a great package.  Here are my goodies:



I'm required to take my students to the playground at least twice weekly (the other days I can send my assistant).  I hate the cold more than you can imagine.  tdrios made me a beautiful and oh so very soft hat and scarf for those nippy days.




Don't you love my model?

Here is a close-up of the detail on the scarf:




Next was a pair of warm cupcake gloves.  I'm constantly forgetting my gloves so these will come in handy:





She also sent a cute little crocheted flower clip.  I think I'll use this for my chip stash that I hide in my cabinet in the classroom.  Some women destress with chocolate; I need my chips:



And then there were all the extras.  We both teach at Christian schools, and (I can say this because she has rec'd) we each sent the other a woman's devotion book.  I also got cute note pads, can't have too many of those, and a pretty pocket mirror.  Believe it or not, I have really been dying for one of these pocket mirrors so I was thrilled with that one especially.




Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the little tube of body wash.

It was a great package tdrios, I love it.  Thanks so much.  I hope you enjoyed your first swap and that you'll catch the swap bug like the rest of us!

I received from Craftastrophe today and all I can say is WOW!!  Seriously, I think this is the best loot I have ever gotten!  I can't say thank you enough!
 So, without further a do, the pictures:

A super stash of goodies!  pencils, sticky notes (my favorite invention ever!), stickers, decorative paper, and some sweet teacher themed ribbon:


Awesome bookmarks for my kiddos!  There's a ton of them so nobody will fight over them-good thinking!!


An adorable personalized chalkboard this is going to hang in a special place in my room!


And last but certainly not least...an awesome Dick and Jane tote bag!   The sewing talent you have is amazing and I am now embarrassed to know I sent you that horrendous bag I attempted to make.   Embarrassed  This really is amazing!  I will use it every day!!!


THANK YOU!!!!!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
