I am glad you like your bracelet..for every shell connector on the bracelet I broke about 4 more...the language was most foul at my craft table  Shocked Smiley
I adore the bracelet! I truly do, I wore it immediately and only took it off before I started dishes"^.^"

I just realized I tokk a lot of poopy photos. Sorry, it was really bright outside and it looked fine when I snapped and since I had so much of an issue with the photo uploading, I didn't even check them:P Oh wells, you'll all just have to trust me that they are awesome!Before I just had mostly acrylic beads and a few glass beads... now I have a proper bead stash!

Ok, so here I am, curled up at my computer with a glass of my husbands homemade hard cider, attempting to post pictures.  Let's hope I don't fall asleep halfway through either!

I received an absolutely amazing package from april again today.  



Whole big stash of buttons!


Some beautiful glass, Czech glass, ceramic, and wire wrapped


Wire stars, connectors, etc


Red roses, copper spacers, blue stone chips (not sure what type of stone), and fun little metal "bundle" beads


Charms, connectors, pendants, spacers, clasps, stone focal beads


The COOLEST little vintage poodle pincushion!




Any two BEAUTIFUL pairs of earrings!


I already wore the sewing ones to my second shift at work today!!!  Thanks so much april.  Everything was a lovely treasure, and I can't wait to play with all of it!!!

Oh, Tero- I'm so glad you liked everything! You gave me serious swap anxiety- you're such an awesome swapper! And haha, I totally misspelled kompundophile- I knew I should have looked it up!
April Again, I love those wire-wrapped stars you sent!
Everyone's soups have been just incredible. And this has been such a fun, fast swap!

Edited to add: I actually did look it up and it's:Koumpounophobia, so therefore koumpounophilia/koumpounophile. Hmmm, still seems like ther should be a 'd' in there.  Cheesy

haa haa Lady, I would have had to look it up to see if you/I/we spelled it wrong. Such a funny word and although I feel very guilty for laughing at someones illness just a dang funny thing all together for me.

My lovely package from jennieingram...please excuse the crappy photos, it has been a totally exhausting day and the pictures do not do this great swap justice..


**sigh I am having issues uploading...craftster is being wonky lately..I will keep trying

OK here we go (excuse my dining room table, my craft table looks ..well unkempt at the moment)

My soup in all its glory:


Close up of glass beads including some really neat leaf ones:


Close up of gorgeous blue pearls, stone and bicone beads:


Close up of bead caps, clasps and charms (REALLY cute charms):


Close up of neat bone/horn and wood beads and some cute buttons and CANDY :


My baubles! Awesome earrings (I wore to work today) and a pretty bracelet in my favorite color:



Thanks so much Jennie, it was a great package Smiley
(My photos do NOT do them justice)

I got my beads from DizzerSpinninRound today!!!  I'm so excited, my soup is GREAT!



Look at all those beads!  O and the buttons!  I love buttons!



And some close ups!   My goodness,  I have two pairs of black and white sequin earrings that are almost identical to those earrrings except they are hanging from chain to dangle!  They couldn't be more perfect!   Thank you so much!~

I was SO mad at myself because I forgot to photograph the earrings and bracelet I sent you!  Oh well.  I'll make another set or something... hehe.

I'm glad you liked everything dear!!!
