That girl-girl pendant is fantastic- so adorable!! I was picking up a card for a wedding the other day, and saw one with 2 tuxes on it, and one with 2 wedding gowns.  Smiley

On an organizer's note- we still have a couple people that haven't sent yet, so if that's you please send us a DC asap! Thanks!

Saphire Moon- How cool is that custom made pendant!

I am loving so much in this swap.

I have more pictures of my received package to post, hopefully today. I keep trying to make it to the library for faster internet and I keep missing it  Undecided

inside were baby food jars decorated with little wings and the letters that spell WHIMSY on the lids
inside those jars were buttons, gems, beads, mini mirrors, and other stuff I forget
I also tucked some stickers in there
hope you like it all and can use some of the things in your projects

I loved everything and as you'll see from the pictures I took a lot of stuff out right away for projects! And something funny: I used the lids to spell out MY WISH, it never even occured to me that they spelled WHIMSY!!

Now for the pictures:

Sorry everything is fuzzy, I am using a card reader and apparently it is pretty low quality. This pic show the jars spelling "my wish"  Wink the cute tiny wooden dresser with drawers open to show the hidden loot, and the cute decorative box Krista made. Each jar had different themes of stuff- there was a jar of ribbon/thread, glass pieces, beads and buttons, felt pieces. . .

This is a picture of everything else inside of the box. Everything else included stamps, confetti, stickers, plastic toys and bits, fortunes, little mirrors. SO much stuff I couldn't get it all back into the "jar"!!

This final one is everything I intended to use right away in projects! The fortunes I am especially excited about  Grin

iheartzb, thanks for the pictures! It is so funny that you figured out to spell "my wish"!

And I have been saving fortunes for quite a while, it helps that we eat chinese a lot

YES! I would love to be your Creative Memories Consultant! Just ask

So as I promised Automaton J., I'm posting the photos I have of the wonderful whimsies she sent me!

First, all of it together
I love the killer rabbit embroidery.

I also got a bart the gnome!

We have already become good friends!

All of the whimsies together:

I think she covered all of the major things I wanted.
Everything was great but if I had to choose favorites:

Thanks so much Automaton J.!!!!!

Here's the contents of my whimsical package from Patti M.  I had to scan it as I couldn't find my camera so I hope everything shows up ok.

We are both paper crafters so she sent me lots of things I can use for my ATCs, Chunky Pages and other paper crafts. The "jars" were zip-lock bags with pictures of jars on them  - to save on shipping costs from USA to Australia - and it's amazing how much she managed to fit in the mailer.

Jar #1 featured beautiful vintage images which Patti printed out on vellum using images from her collection - this is a great idea for a crafted item. I absolutely love these and can't wait to use them for my papercrafts.

Jar #2 contained some exotic yarn, a curly shoelace, & 3 star necklaces. I've also scanned the bag with the jar picture on it.

Jar #3 contained heaps of charms - lots of Roman coins, some hearts, leaves and other great items. I particularly love the little cards. The charms came wrapped in sparkly floral tissue paper in a very pretty red & gold bag - which I forgot to photograph.

Jar #4 contained an American flag pin, a gold head (didn't scan very well), a Sportz angel pin, and mini gel pens. And some very sweet miniature musical instruments.

Jar #5 contained shrinky dinks that Patti M made. The top row is vintage images and the bottom row are hand painted flowers -there's a carnation, a daisy and a sunflower. (Good stalking Patti - I LOVE flowers)

Jar #6 contained some very whimsical flowers, fairies, crowns and a leprecaun, a skeleton clip, a pair of sunglasses, a green foiled star, 2 flat marbles and one round one, a reusable "Fun button", the teeniest little pack of coloured pencils and a very cute little teddy.

And finally some loose whimsies which were not in the jars:

A "Grow Me" hippie girl, a Celebrate 2000 bubble blowing pendant, a wand "so all your projects turn out magical", a nail art kit which has teeny sparkles for ATCs etc, and a card.

Patti forgot to put a couple of items in the package so I will post photos of those when they arrive.

Thanks for everything Patti M!

I'm looking forward to the next round.
