I just got such an awesome package from Oh My Goodbye!!!!  She so totally nailed my style and was so creative I can't stand it!  Grin  Are you ready for this much awesomeness?  Can you take it?  I don't know but I'm about to rock your worlds  Wink

First up, a really great slouchy hat (I've totally been eyeing these) to keep my noggin warm in Colorado (at Stanley Springs hotel hunting ghosts, of course)

(I'm way more stoked then I looked, I was just less than stoked with the previous pictures that I had taken... stupid florida heat has me all sweaty and puffy)

Next up, these are just too cute- Mini campfires!!!!!  "to set the mood" after a long day of sight seeing and being back in our hotel room ready to use the contents of a following goodie, he he...  anyway, the campfires!

ok, next up, the previously hinted towards naughty bag!!!!!!  You know, a bag... for naughtiness  (where's that eyebrow shaking smiley??? ok we'll go with this  Kiss)
it's hard to tell in the pic but the top is a velcro-flap, kind of lunch bag style  Smiley

here's a change purse because I mentioned that everytime we see an arcade on vacation (or anytime, really) my husband has to stop.  So now, I can just pull out the change upon command!  WHI-CHA!  (That was a whipping sound, kind of... yeah)

Next, an adorable & matching cozy for the local beers that we love to hit up  Grin

By now, I'm sure you've noticed how well all this matches.  Well, the bag is equally amazing.  And, can you believe that it's all an array of ribbons that makes it so cute!!!!  I love this so much!

open: (god, I love the inside fabric too)

Thank you sooooooooooooooooo much, Nikki!!!!!  You totally rocked my socks  Smiley  Kiss  Grin

I got my Japanese vacation from zcrafter and love everything so so much!

Postcards, chocpsticks, chopstick rests, book about Japan, Hello Kitty luggage tag, small wallet with Japanese coins inside, Japanese newspaper, sandalwood bookmarks, fan, lined and crocheted ipod case, and my two favorite things in the package: a map of the Philly area plaque (this being my hometown):

 and the greatest bag of all time:

It had kanji and english on it, the same green lining as my pink ipod case, and has the neatest little crochet trim.  I adore it.  I, in fact, adore everything.  This was an excellent swap and I can't wait to use all of it!

I love the ribbon & stars bag & the campfires are so creative!  Grin
I also love the Hello Kitty luggage tag! So cute!  Cheesy

Awesome packages! You guys were so creative! The campfires are so cute!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

I got a GIANT box from Craftastrophe today!  Grin So I'm off on my tropical vacation...

Here's the cute little card she sent:

A Sandals resort packet so I can envision myself on a resort (since there will be no actual vacation  Cry)

A set of plastic (always good with a little one around!) goblets for my (non-alcoholic  Cry) beverages

A cooler bag

A journal/notebook

A mini scrapbook set

Some beach toys for my son

A wristlet

A camera cozy

And because I just love Dr. Seuss, she included a TON of Dr. Seuss fabric... Seriously, there are several yards here. I love it! I can't wait to use it. Any suggestions for what I should do with it anyone?

And finally the. coolest. bag. ever.
It's gigantic & batik (I LOVE batiks!)... it doesn't get any better than that. And it has a palm tree on the front.

The inside is awesome too (although my picture is horrible). It's lime green with one giant pocket on one side & two really big pockets on the other.

And here's everything all together!

Thanks so much Craftastrophe! I love it all!!  Grin Grin Grin

oh my goodbye

Yay! I'm so glad you liked everything, Marie! I was kind of iffy on the whole ribbon idea, but I thought it was too cool to pass up, and I'm so glad you like it so much!
I love everyone's packages and wish I could go on everyone's vacations! Especially with everyone's tropical vacations... I just wanna go to the beach now Smiley
