ORGANIZATIONAL POST

I have started giving feedback.  I've started with those that only did one box, I'm off to work so tomorrow I will start looking at everyone else to see if any of the partners are completly done.  It sounds like everyone has had a great time with this swap, I know I did.  Thanks everyone.

Yeah I got both my matchboxes today!

First was from PhoenixLlewelyn!  She did an amazing job!  I tried to take a picture where I singled out the items I liked the most and found myself putting everything in the pile!  LOL!  So here it is (oh and Pheonix, I have totally adopted your method for photographing small items.  It looks so pretty this way!).



....like I said I love it all but I especially loved the mini coffee cup bead (I drink a LOT of coffee...in fact I am drinking some now!!) and the lock/key, the earrings (wearing those now too!), okay here I go again starting to name everything! LOL!   Grin

And now for SnapsandDragons!  Which I must add....she must be an amazing packer because I tried to put everything back in the matchbox after I took the pictures and couldn't get it all in.  How'd you cram all that stuff in there!?   


I was so happy to see buttons!  I have been trying so hard to build a button collection and now I am well on my way with the coolest buttons being added from SnapsandDragons!  I love the stickers too (you can never have too many stickers!  And the asian coin!  OMG fan-freaking-tastic!  I am gonna turn it into a pendant for a necklace like today!  LOL!

Great job ladies!

Here's my pretty box from Phoenix. I love the teeny bat charm and the brass filigree piece. I'm betting I can snip it in half and make two crowns out of it!

I got my box from mynameis_jinx today!  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! OMG! The cuteness is ...CUTE!! HAHA Here are the pics:


Partially unwrapped. Love that paper! It will be reused for something Smiley


Then out pops...a pop up purple octopus!! SO CUTE! Made me giggle Tongue The fiance thinks I'm crazy Tongue I think mynameis_jinx rocks!


Stamps! I lsot a huge stamp collection in one of my many moves Sad Thanks for getting me started again!


My favorites amongst the stamps (though hard to pick)


Handcrafted goodies! She did such and awesome job stalking! That nautilus hand carved stamp is to kill for!! Do you have any idea how hard it is to find something like that? And her carving skills are mad crazy awesomeness! The little paper with the nautilus on it is what it looks like when you use it Smiley Also, I heart those earrings! Two of my favorite colors Smiley


Everything else (googly eyes!! YAY!! And bells! Those are going onto holiday earrings). Don't ask me how she got this all in that little box! I'm still trying to repack the thing! lol.
Thank you so much, mynameis_jinx! You nailed my tastes right on!

Hi Everybody! So I returned home tonight from a hard week at work to a lovely package from Melmakespretty! I LOVE the angry looking kitty in the bottom of the matchbox & I also love the ribbon with little skeletons on it - it's so fantastic! You did a great job - thanks so much:)
