Oooh, button soup! I'd love that too.  Smiley

I got my package from Disposableactor yesterday!!!   Grin  On to the goodies!


The "dawn" set, with some of my favorites on the envelope.  And let me tell ya, I don't usually like paper beads, because well...... they look like paper beads, but the ones she sent are beautiful!


The "twilight" set.  look at the skull bead!

\
All sorted and ready to be used....


And my extras.  Hemp, buttons, pin backing, wire, earring rings, and enough sterling kidney wire for 30 pairs of earrings!


Thanks so much Disposableactor!  What a great package!!!!

Finally have a moment to get the pictures up from the wonderful package I got from disposableactor Smiley

She sent the best package, thank you so very much. She shared some very special bead with me, some from jewelry given to her from her husband on their honeymoon, some from a special friend, some of her personal collection she has been building over the years. I was very touched that she would share such special things.

On to the pictures. First the whole soup. Smiley



It was really neat as she did a sea package and a shore package. Such thought she put into it all.



The sea goodness...I was blown away by the crystals that she spoiled me with. Smiley



The shore treasures. I have never gathered orange beads before, having them now has opened up some new ideas for me. Smiley

There was also a HUGE PILE of sterling silver earring hoops and hooks. And as if all of that wasn't enough she made me this really beautiful bracelet



I can not imagine the time it took to do all of those tiny beads. Smiley I love the colors though and have worn it twice since I have gotten it.

Thank you so very much for all that you did. Smiley

Much Peace to you and yours

OK two post in a row. OMG !! Dragonflywer sent me the coolest package too. I have been sorting this whole time. LOVE IT. Smiley

first the soup in all its glory



Then one of my favorite extras. I laughed out loud. She really did some stalking to come up with this. It is a baggie full of MOP buttons but the outside of the baggie says  kompundophiliacs unite. I am pretty sure I spelled it right. LOL OMG so funny.






Some really beautiful focal beads. The two grey ones are just stone and I really like them. SO simple and pretty. Almost the whole soup is stone but these are like river rocks stone.


Then she made me this really beautiful pendant necklace. I love it!! Smiley Thank you so much !! She said in her note she was unsure about it but I think it is beautiful.



Everything all sorted out and ready for projects. Smiley

I have some more close ups in my gallery if anyone wants to take a look.

Those of you who hop over there will notice that I took a picture of her hand writing because she has the prettiest handwriting I have ever seen. Smiley

Thank you so much for everything. I love it all and cant wait to get to make it all into jewelry.

Much Peace to you and yours

Goodness I love how fast this round is, being all U.S. shipping.  12 out of our 18 packages have been received already!  That's 2/3 already done!  Way to go Bead Swappers!!!

I also received from april again today!  She sent an absolutely lovely package and I'll try to get pictures up before bed tonight.  (Sadly Wednesdays suck for me because I work 9:00-5:00, then I have to go back to work from 7:00-10:00, so I have very little time at night.)  Ok, I'm going to try to snap some pictures now, before I head back, so I get edit and post when I get home!
