It is too bad I am going to have to take you down in scrabble.

Oh, no you did not! I think you had better rethink that one Wink

I got my package from Salo a few days ago...oh my goodness, it is amazing! I am in love. Cheesy Warning, this is picture heavy! (tried to use small pics where possible...)



Gryffindor scarf, because of course I love Harry Potter. And yes, I am a Gryffindor, so yay! Grin



Scrollbar scarf! What an interesting concept! When I look at it, it makes me think of custom colored scrollbars I used to love to make for my websites back in the day...but now I use Firefox and they don't work. D: So this is my memento, haha. xD



This little mini lunchbox (with some HHG references...Tongue) tin held these great items:



Rainbow (yay!) necklace and earring set, with old keys from a keyboard as charms! Too cool! I am wearing them right now, I love them so much. Cheesy





...And this amaaaazing set of stitch markers! (You can't really tell since I'm showing small versions of the pics, but I was having waaaaay too much fun with the macro setting on my new camera. Gorgeous, I tell you!) They are based on spells. So pretty!



"Homey" (haha) cross-stitch. I'm going to hang it on the wall of my dorm when I go off to school in the fall. Cheesy Extra added bit of comfort, LOL!



"Fairy In A Bottle" inspired by Zelda of course! If you can read it, the tag says "In case of emergencies". We could all use a fairy in a bottle for some emergency health, right? So adorable, I love her. Cheesy


Oh and Salo, I don't know if you noticed this or not, but when you look at the dishcloth from a more level angle...



Tada! Cheesy This was my first time doing illusion knitting, though I've known about it for a while. You can do it with crochet too, and it's really fun and easy (though time consuming if you're not the best at keeping track of things in your head) to design your own patterns! I hope to do more sometime. :]

I didn't notice that on the dishcloth. Now it's even more awesome!

I'm glad you liked everything, oddacity. It was super fun to make!

Just a little extra, I took a picture of the fairy before I put her in that neat little bottle:

Love love love love the fairy in the bottle. Totally have to steal that idea for my husband some time. Zelda is his favorite series in video games.

I also really like the stitch markers. Awesome package!!!

Nice job, Salo! That's some rad loot! All awesome, but my faves are the scrollbar scarf, the cross stitch, & the fairy-in-a-jar. Smiley

Are you ready for some AWESOMENESS???  (that last bit was to be said with a slightly sing song voice!!)

Here is the package that I got from Millik:

First, let us have the group shot

Now for some closeups:
Some twilight candy which we can't get or at least I haven't seen in Canada flanked by a little Vampire and Werewolf.  She wasn't totally happy with them but I think they are cute.  I especially appreciate it knowing she hasn't fully gotten into Twilight


2 scarves...one made from a Tshirt!  I especially like the houndstooth one!


Who doesn't love pushing Daisy's?



A pacman bag of coolness and a knitted Robot which is soooooo cute!


And last, but SOOOO not least.....an owl from a blind box (I collect these and am impressed that I don't have this colour!) and bandaids and the BESTEST which is the wax lion from Wonderfalls.
It hasn't talked to me YET, but then again I only just got him!!



Seriously...best swap ever.  I am excited to keep in contact with Ms. Millik
