Such awesome gifts!

Amanda I am so glad you found the scarves useful, I am wearing yours too.  The weather got dangerously cold here.  They are expecting us to have windchills in the negatives by the weekend and snow by the end of the week, which may not seem like much to some of you but I am in the South, currently in Alabama, and the temperatures hardly ever get that cold and hardly ever see snow.

Well I apologize for the massive delay in posting my goodies. As many of you already know, there was a crafty grinch that stole my first package from babalina58 that she was sweet enough to replace. I on or around the 10th of January but have been unable to post pictures until now. I am in college full-time and was failing my class so I had to turn all of my energy and focus onto that for the past 8 days with not even minor distractions like Facebook and Craftster being allowed. I grounded myself from all things but schoolwork. (Well minus the two nights I went out to celebrate my 30th birthday!!). <Sigh> So anyhow, here are all the fab goodies I got from my amazing partner!

Here is a pic of the wrapped goodies and my "stocking"....a Halloween bag like the one off my wists!! (More pics of the stocking a bit further down).



Okay well here is the bag in all of its gloriousness!



The craftsmanship is hard to show in these pictures sometimes but let me assure you that the attention to detail is quite extraordinary! I mean just look at these pockets!!!



Next is some of the "smaller" goodies. Small does not mean "not awesome" in my book! These things are great!! There are three nesting tins that are beautifully decorated and that I can't wait to start using to organize some of my crafty things! A square hole punch which I am stoked about. I already have a 1" square punch but this one is smaller than that which makes it all the better! You can never have too many different sized hole punches in my opinion! There is a tiny beaded box with a removeable lid. It is so dainty and precious. The magnets that fit inside a matchbox are TO DIE FOR! I should have gotten a better closeup of those. They are uber girly and all me. A Day of the Dead themed candle. Its so cute that I am not sure if I can light it! The photo frame is too cute and covered with pink felt and has a tiny skull in the center of a felt flower. I can't wait to use it! And lastly one of the coolest gadget gifts I have gotten in a looooong time.....a digital photo frame keychain in pink...with little diamonds around the frame part!!  I ADORE THIS! I have gotten as far as putting the software on my new laptop and charging up the keychain. All I have to do now is select which photos I want to download to the keychain!  Thanks babalina58. These things are SO me and I LOVE them all!!



I squeeled (yes, out loud) when I opened this and saw a mustache nightlight!! I mean how cute is this!?!?!?! And this adorable "bouquet" of candle roses/flowers and they smell lovely!





Some crazy cool jewelry is next. A mustache necklace which I literally made my mom go searching for a chain for so I could wear it out that night. Which I did and even got a compliment on that night! The bowler hat and mustache brooch is too cute! A winter pin/brooch, a really cool necklace pendant and matching bracelet which I can't wait to wear!! No duds here! I love them all soo much!!



This is me wearing the mustache necklace THAT VERY NIGHT! It was the perfect accessory!



Sorry for the crappy picture on this next one but it was a bracelet I got and wore out the same night I wore the mustache necklace. Then I misplaced it for a few days and by the time I found it I had already taken all the pics from the swap! Sooo....I took this with my cell phone camera to save a little time.



WARNING! This next picture has some swear words in it! You have been warned!

I also SQUEELED when I saw this AMAZING wood sign that says "Fuck Off"!!  I curse like a sailor and am damn proud of it! This will be in my craft room on proud display for all the world to see! The oven mitt is straight off my wists and says "Fuck it's HOT!". It is so hilarious! And the gorgeous knitted bag will soon be my new cell phone case or mini-portabel tampon case (LOL)....haven't decided which yet!



Okay here is the BIG item of the bunch. This is THE most amazing GIFT I could have ever received! I got a scrapbook from babalina58 and it is INCREDIBLE!!!! She took the time to fill the book with pre-scrapbooked pages that are beautiful and completely ready for me to simply add the photos of my choice. I am a pretty awful scrapbooker so this impresses me more than you could know, babalina58!!! I can't tell you how special this is to me! This must have taken you FOREVER! Well I can't wait to use it and thank you for being such a sweet, kind person and such an AWESOME swap partner!! I look forward to many, MANY personal swaps in the future!! (Hint Hint) LOL!!





Oh and I almost forgot about my adorable amigurami snowman! My kids ran off with it soo quickly I had trouble finding it to take a picture of it! My 22-month old is "certain" that it is HER snowman! LOL. She hugs it and walks around with it constantly! There's no arguing with a toddler once they have their mind made up! LOL.



Thanks again babalina58! It exceeded any expectations I may have had! You outdid yourself!

Oh my goodness!!! Thanks for mentioning that! Your a genious! I actually never would have thought of that on my own...I think I have some laying around here somewhere actually. But if not, they are pretty inexpensive.

Yeah I am excited for my next box! I cannot even imagine what it will be!?!? I LOVE surprises! <clap! clap!>

Well I wont be ready for a few months I think but I am READY to do a personal swap if you want! We can decide ahead of time if we want a theme or whatever and we can decide if we want to do a 5-point swap (etc, etc) or just swap one item for one item.... I REALLY want to swap with you again. You are an amazing lady and a super fun swap partner! AND out of all the people I have swapped with, you are the one I do NOT want to loose contact with once we move on to other swaps!  Cheesy
