Oh wow, I could form a shopping list from this thread!

Back after being off for a few days.  Good heavens, the emails and posts!

Sapphire:  I hope you can get good pics when you receive.  The cat "helped" me get pics before sending.  *sigh*

Alright, so here's my great package from Luanne.

First off, the 'jar'. It's a Frankenstein box. I love Frankenstein.



Opened:



Pretty ribbons, and a piece of felt bacon. (Mmmm....bacon):



Tetris magnets. I actually already have some on my fridge and I can't wait to add these. I'd love to absolutely cover my fridge in them.



Photo key chain, mini canvases, a pretty tag and a ladybug that's a grocery bag (see next pick.)



Ladybug bag opened. This is so going in my purse.



Halloween glow things. There's a few more that missed the pic.



Some floss (which I always need), mini tea set, square stick glue (how neat), mini stapler, some beads, and a tea ball. I love it the most cause I bought one the other day, but it turned out too big for my tea pot. She sent me some tea too, but I think I missed it in the pics.



Some of my favs. Cute little crochet mushrooms, mini food, beads, little candles, and some roving with a needle for felting. Also a Montreal keychain which I love. My first real adult trip was to Montreal, but I lost the ring that I bought as a souvenir, so I love this.



An Archie comic (I love Archie!) and some pages from a french dictionary.



Tired yet, cause there's more. I feel very spoiled.
Bits of pretty fabric.



Cute beaded pins made with safety pins that don't photograph well. The left one's a heart and the right a goldfish.



Mini alphabet and symbol stamps, stamp pad, and some scrabble tiles. (Yay)



Pretty paper tags, glitter glue, beads, buttons, stickers, wire, and some blank artistic trading cards. Can't wait to make one. (It'll be my first time.)



Pretties.



One of the cute little mushrooms to finish off. Think I might make him into a pin.




Thanks so much Lunanne.

YAY!!! I'm so glad it made you happy Tero!!! I forgot to mention that the wristwatch pincushion was made by A2K. The needle book was made by pinkanddinky. And AsphaltQueen, in addition to swapping me the necklaces, gave me some whimsies for you when we met up in Vegas.  Cheesy

Now just wait until you see the awesome stuff I got from Tero!! I'm working on the pics now- it will blow you away

ETA: And the thread catcher was swapped from sarahj2001. Lol, there's all kinds of craftsters in that box.  Cheesy

So much great stuff!! I love all the Alice things and those coasters are too funny, I think I'll have too stitch up those sayings and hang them round here.

That frankenstein box is way cool and those beaded safety pins are cute. I love those tetris magnets too, you can never play too much tetris on the fridge. Grin

Wowser, more great packages.  I too could go shopping from each and every post, so many wonderful things.  I love the sewing basket idea. The two decorated boxes are great and clever containers also.

I received a wonderful package of whimsies from murbeck a few days ago! It was all amazing and I loved the crafted items! Ok take a look...
Ok first the container, its such a pretty green color!

Next some of my favorites - corks, a punch, sea glass, and old cell phone pads!

There was some ribbon and cute little palm trees

I really liked the corks and the tins and small bottle

I received a great embroidery off my wist and some pear washcloths as well. I love them!


I am still going through some of it but wanted to get some pictures up and say thank you again to Murbeck!

Are you ready for the awesomeness that is Tero's package?! Behold!!!



Penguin nesting dolls!!! A box painted with my dog's faces!!! Gaaa, how can anyone stand so much cuteness???  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Close-up of the box! This looks sooooo much like my boys it's crazy. Tero, you have mad painting skills!!


Nesting penguins!! I love these *so much*! I couldn't stop squealing when I opened them! I have an, umm, minor penguin obsession.  Lips sealed


Here are each of the penguins and the goodies inside, from smallest to largest!

Teeny-tiny penguin with a teeny-tiny penguin inside!


Macaroni Penguin (?) with cool steampunky goodness.


African Penguin with penguin beads and a fused glass penguin (!!!!!)


Macaroni Penguin with the cutest penguin beads in the world!!


Emperor Penguin with crafty goodies! Bracelet and matching hair pin, earrings, keychain with my baby Jax, and pendants.


And, yeah, I haven't even opened the other containers at this point.  Shocked

Inside the 2 little penguin boxes: loot!! Pendants, beads, the infamous pooping penguin  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy, and lots of jewelry findings.


And now for the box...

Sewing notions!! Check out the incredible sweet owl cloisonne thimble right under the uber-cute penguin pincushion!


Beads and buttons!!


Papercraft awesomeness!!


Whimsies upon whimsies upon more whimsies!!


Metal clips and more whimsies!


Holy mackerel Tero, you are an amazing and talented woman. Thank you so much for swapping with me! I will treasure everything so much- those penguins are going on a shelf in my craft room, and I'm going to make something like Mamaphunk made to show off some of the incredible fabulousness you sent my way. Such generosity and thoughtfulness- you have made my day week month year decade.  Kiss Kiss Kiss

OMG what wonderful packages!  I can't even comment fully since my brain is in whimsy shock right now!  I added the tetris magnets to my fave projects.  Tero is so lucky to have received her very own whimsy lamp and the box that Tero painted for Freestyle is so amazing.  I love all the paper goodies that everyone has received!  Where was that wonderful ladybug shopping bag found at??? I must get one for my purse.  I also love the we are a pear wall hanging and the inspire embroidery magnet.  Gorgeous stuff everyone!

My whimsies didn't get delivered today as I had hoped.  Maybe Monday...
