Here's our gallery thread, I can't believe that we need one this soon!  Good crafting all, and thank you for being patient with my heinous and exploding life!

Oh silly me.  I just requested for you to set this up.  Sigh.  I'll have photos from my swap by tomorrow (as soon as I get the package!).

Here's my amazing stuff. 
Troublet gave me: two pretty blue headbands and a great recipe holder (with a few recipes) and a tree topper plus some really fun extras (ribbon, colorful papers, flowers)
She gave my sister-in-law: some adorable reusable makeup pads in a precious zippered pouch with an amazing crocheted pouf and shower gel
She gave my brother-in-law: 2 mugs with Halo transfers and 4 matching coasters (should these be handwashed?)
She gave my grandma: a lovely embroidered saying to put in a frame
She gave my sons: a cute monster/alien/plankton doll and a similar bib for the baby
She gave my father-in-law: an incredible canvas roll for holding his whittling tools - plus the tools!
Thank you so much, partner!  I don't think I match all your spoils, but I'll try.

I forgot to send the instructions for cleaning for your BiL's cups so the answer to your question is yes. Smiley

I was originally going to do ceramic tile coasters for him and then I thought about the kids. lol!

Your SiL's gifts are 100% cotton and washable on gentle cycle.

I'm glad that you liked your package!

I got home late again so I didn't have time to take real photos so those are done with a phone.  I'll post nicer ones later since I look at those in the daylight and they don't do any justice for the package.  The shower pouf is soooo amazing.  I was blown away by that and I know she (and everyone else) will really enjoy their gifts.

I am not patient I am understanding lol. Last year I almost died from getting really sick with pancreititis and i spent a week and a half in the hospital. then my hubby went into the hospital for three days about 2 weeks later. Then everything just kept sprialling for us with doctors and life so I get life getting in the way. So yeah i understand having everything go nuts all at once and not being able to stop and think for one minute.

Wow I think that I need to do a few more things when I get back for you since my package is sucking right now in comparison to troublet's lol. Sorry if my spelling is off all I can't really see the screen lol.

GAH! I did not realize just how hard it would be to get pictures of my package. I don't normally get boxes through the mail so the kids and my husband went into super nosey mode. I guess this wasn't the best idea for a first swap if I wanted to keep anything a secret. LOL!

Ok, here's a picture of the box contents...a cutesy folk clock (unfortunately the Post office was gentle in handling it Sad ) for my mom, sugar spiced walnuts for my dad, a princess tiara for my daughter, a remote control organizer and a Hitchhiker's Guide inspired towel kit for my husband, and for me, earrings (pictured below), bath stuff, ice tray for making home made gum drops, and a hanging note from Santa complete with coffee stain. lol!





And now for coolness, a space playmat for my son that includes aliens!




DH's towel kit...too funny!




My neato earrings! Are these shrinky dinks? I can't figure out what they are made of. (Sorry for the blurry pic!)




Thank you niki_mac!

The gifts that you all exchanged are all so cool!  (Nervously biting nails as my package treks to ccswch!)

I received today from ccswch!!!   Everything is perfect -- a keychain for my step mom with the name of her favorite old dog, Kylee stamped into metal and angel wings, a keychain for my dad with the name of his upick farm business stamped into the metal (he loved it, I am down visiting my family now and decided they'd get early gifts to save shipping and allow me to see reactions Smiley which is why it is not pictured -- I got too excited.)  A dork shirt for my brother -- it is like the york peppermint patty logo, he is going to be so happy -- a hippyesque purse for my sister, and extras -- potholders and coasters, winter/Christmas themed . . . can't decide if I will save them for myself or gift them to a friend who would love them . . . Here are the pictures!




The whole spread.

Everything is awesome!  Thanks, ccswch!  Thanks to you, Handsy, for organizing!

Troublet, the earrings were made with this plasticky liquid resin stuff that I had imported from Ireland (it was actually cheaper than buying it from the one place left in the US that still sells it). 
Ragdollpirate, since you ended up having a lousy partner, can you still post what you made?  I'd love to see pictures.

I was trying to wait to see if Handsy was going to send this week but, she hasn't so I will post pics tomorrow.
