Ooooh - I got it!!!

I got an AWESOME egg filled with all kinds of cool stuff.  I opened it right before I left for class this afternoon, so I don't have it in front of me right now (shhhh - I'm posting from my class!).  But, if I remember, it had:
- Three rubber o-ring bracelets with various charms and decorations
- Six or Seven pairs of beautiful dangling earrings (several of which my daughter has already staked a claim to)
- Three cool marble magnets (two Dior and one Mickey Mouse)
- A silver necklace with red and yellow glass beads
- All in a cute bunny egg!

If I forgot something, I apologize.  I'll check my stash later and update the post with pics.

Thanks, princess_me - you're an awesome swap partner!  grasshopper, I'm putting the finishing touches on your stuff and will send tomorrow.  Thanks for your patience!

According to Canada Post my swap buddy Freckles got her package from me a few days ago so I thought I'd throw up the pictures while I remember.
I'm used to bigger swaps so this was hard for me just making small stuff. She said she liked retro 70's kinda stuff so I had a bit of fun Smiley

Lined zippered pouch a la psychidelic motif



Partridge pin, flowered hair barette, seed bead bracelet and I just learned how to macrame so yeah a hemp anklet



Fun stuff to make I hope she liked it Smiley

I got my egg from Freckles today. It was just what I needed to perk up my very blah Monday.

Pardon the horrible photography. I had to hurry and snap a couple shots of the stuff before my batteries died.




I received:
-Sparkly orange egg charm
-Hemp bracelet with orange beads
-seed bead flower magnet
-Hello Kitty pushpin
-A multi-colored fuzzy choker
-A pouch of great smelling potpourri
-A purple felt flower pin

I love it all. Thanks, Freckles!  Grin

Rock and roll!!  My egg came today!  I was (well, still am) having a crappy-ass, horrible, icky day.  But I wandered home during my lunch hour and what was in the mailbox?  My egg from ChtzpahGrrl!!!  I don't have a camera, so here goes with the description:
             -a pretty green egg
             -stretchy bracelets in gold and purple
             -bottle cap earrings (diet pepsi!)
             -a chenille chick (brings back the memories!)
             -a way cool ribbon with a nifty bead and whale charm on the end
                (Mom thinks its a necklace, Dad thinks its a bookmark...oh, the
                      possibilities are endless!)
            -three teeny-tiny WonderWoman magnets! (did you know that I used
                to pretend I was WonderWoman with my cape on and everything?!)
           
Thank you ChtzpahGrrl!!  You made my day!!

The pink bird is an image I pulled from the 'net of a Phoenix....it made me think of Fawlkes (sp?) from HP!   ^_^  I had hoped the images were not too blurred from being shrunk.  >_>   

Sadly, I did not get photos before mailing.  Drat.   But I am glad you liked your things!   The purple bracelet was from Borders and goes to a Literacy Charity, I believe.   


I also got my things a few days ago!!   

In my egg, I got:

- silk rose pin
- felted flower pin
- silver drawstring bag
- "book thong" bookmark
- 3 pairs of earrings:  pair of yellow origami star earrings, pair of short guitar pick earrings, and a pair of long guitar pick earrings.
- 2 keyrings:  one shrinky-dink dice and one of the BareNaked Ladies' "Stunt" album cover!  ^_^
- 4 marble magnets: Rocky and Bullwinkle, Mario Bros., and The Princess Bride
- small stickers



Thanks SilverWing!



I have just one question....how did  you get those images on the shrinky-dink paper?  O.o

I posted this in the main thread too, but I wanted to be sure everyone saw it.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to check back in to make sure everyone got their stuff. Things have been a little crazy at my house the last few weeks. Our one remaining working car has been in the shop twice and we've all been sick at least once.

On Saturday morning my dog was hit by a car and died shortly after at the ER vet. I haven't even been able to send out Shotgun Bettie's stuff. I'm starting to feel a little better now, but this has hit me pretty hard and I find even the simplest things (like typing this message) to be pretty hard.

My dog was like another child to me in a way and I just miss her. Sad

Here's a pic of my pretty puppy.



Again, I'm sorry for the first swap I organized to end up so disorganized. Thanks for your patience everyone.

Actually, the bug and the mini ceramic box were purchased at a gift shop.  The bug is like a bobblehead.
