Yay I'm the first to start posting pics Cheesy
I just received my AWESOME! package from Sewenthusiastic and I love it! She really sent a lot of pretty items and I adore the shirt and shoulder bag, I always use shoulder bags so this will be put to good use! I'm sorry for the dark pictures tough, I took them in a room with a lot of natural light and I don't understand why they are so dark!
Enjoy the pics!

First a pic of all the crafted items:

I got an amazing tshirt with a gnome stencilled on it (She saw on my wists that I like gnomes!), a messenger bag made out of a really pretty fabric, it's perfect for spring!, A jewellery set she made, an ipod/phone cozy (that I needed 'cause I recently bought a smartphone and I didn't have anything to protect it in yet) the cozy even has a gnome button!, A keychain she made and you can also see the little bags where the jewellery was in. I can't wait to wear and use it all!

close-ups



A pic of the 'my country doesn't have that' part:

Here you can see the photo she took of a beautiful place in England, I'm sorry but you can't really see it that good, it was hard to take a picture of it. You can also see the English breakfast tea she sent me and a tea strainer for it, she also sent me candy (Sorry, I couldn't wait for the photo to try them so it's already open Smiley) , and some pretty cupcake cases! I'm going to use them this weekend!

A pic of the crafting supplies:

We don't have freezer paper in Belgium so I asked her if she could send that if she found it in England and she did! Now I can stencil my own shirts! I'm so excited to try it! She also sent acetate sheets, they're also for stenciling but I don't really know what to do with them, are they for cutting out stencils? Also in the pic: but you can hardly see it because of the bad lightning are: pretty glass beads, I already had a couple of them but I didn't have enough to make a bracelet out of them but now I can make one! Gnome buttons, I'm not sure what to use them for at the moment but they look so cute! A glass twist, I think I'm going to make a necklace out of this. And really colourfull buttons!
A slightly better pic of the beads and buttons:


Sewenthusiastic thanks so much for the wonderful swap! I love what you sent and I hope you'll like what I sent you too!
If you have a better pic of your photo you can post it here too, so everyone can see it better.

I haven't found freezer paper in Belgium yet, you can cut a stencil in the paper and adhere it to a shirt by ironing over it, that way you're sure that the stencil won't move

I received from Reichan! The envelope was bulging:) We both love Asian/Japanese culture.

Crafty stash items:
Yarn, beads & buttons, more beads(handmade - they look like wood but I think they are papier mache), pens and erasers. I love the green/blue yarn.




My country doesn't have that:


Lots of chocolate(there was more more:P), 2 Belgian cookies(very nice), 2 types of coffee(had some of it today) and postcards(yay).

Crafted items:


A drawing of a geisha(great skills), a wonderful notebook(I love journals), postcards, painted hair sticks and a mouse for my cats.

Geisha drawing:



More of notebook: Beautiful paper and she wrote a wonderful quote from one of my favourite books in it:)




I also got a pair of chopsticks.

Thanks Riechan - I enjoyed getting to know you and swapping. This was a great idea for a swap.
