Mlheran sent me a most awesome envelope that arrived last evening.  The fun started on the envelope itself with a wish for sufficient postage.  Ding-ding-ding!  We have a winner!


She was the clever craftster and cut slots in a sheet of paper so that everything had a place to be and wouldn't be shifting around during processing.  (A technique I wish I'd used! Tongue)


In the upper left corner, there are sweet little ribbons


And below that a pinwheel kit!  As soon as I locate a pencil I'll be making it and playing with it because I love fidgety toys!!


On the opposite side, there was a clever Shrinkie-dink key tag that sadly was out muscled by the postal system.  I'll be able to fix it with some glue because it's too darned cute to toss.


And below that, a beautifully hand-embroidered Thank You note.  I've read and seen pictures of these before but never seen one in person.  The work is lovely and it will be put to use soon. 


Thank you, again, mlheran, for all the goodies and for being an awesome swap partner! Cheesy

the keychain that got broken... just an idea... because it's got holes already, you could sew it onto something hard (like another piece of plastic with some holes in it... notebook or folder plastic springs to mind).  it might work better than just glue, if you want to actually use it as a keychain...  and it's definitely too cute to waste.

Tags, lots of stickers and a card with envelope.

Cut-outs of squirrels (love them!) and a gingham ribbon. I predict lots of card-making, ATC's and inchies this weekend! Thanks so much!

I recieved from both my partners on Thursday and am just now getting around to posting pics, hehe.

First from smmarrt:

Some great stamps from all over the world!:


And the rest:


I think my favorite thing is the little people cutouts! they are awesome! I really have no idea what i do with them, but i'm excited to come up with something, lol.  Also, I LOVE how you put this all together so nothing moved around. GENIUS!


From pinupmommy:

Awesome stickers:


when i saw that handle with love sticker on the outside of the envelope i thought it was so nifty and was planning on asking where you got it.  when i opened up the envelope and saw you sent some along i was so excited!

I received from my partner sonjabegonia today.



First some gold paper and lacy butterflies/leaves. Next to is is some bento grass...at least I think it's bento grass! Then some delicious chocolate ribbon, five colorful inchies, some buttons which are very lovely. One of them is an old ship, it's really cool. Some embroidery floss, in several colors and a card embroidered with my nickname on it.

Great package!
