Wahoo!!! I received today from astrangeone. I've been checking the mailbox the last few days getting anxious, I thought it would still be a few days, but long behold there it was. She was not kidding when she was talking about spoiling. Boy, was I ever spoiled.

First off, my husband loved the bubble wrap, well, should I say, he loved harrassing the dogs with the bubble wrap, but it kept them all out of my way when I was digging in.

Here's everything.


First, a great wooden fan that will come in handy at work, especially with it being 115 degrees outside! (Gotta love Arizona summers) In the middle is a giraffe chapstick cozy. It's so cute. The chapstick is just sticking out to show where it goes. Then next to that is a turtle coin bank. My turtles approve and love it Smiley


But, that's not it...in the plastic baggie is wildflower seed bombs and next to that is an awesome headband (at least I believe that's what it is, regardless it fits my head really well..haha) I've been dying to find one that actually fits correctly, not sure how she knew!


But still, that's not it. I saved the best for last!!! Such a great washcloth. It's done so well, I would've never guessed you were still new to that craft!!! Then 3 rubber stamps. A turtle stamp, which I absolutly love, one that says Operation Beautiful, and one with my first name and last initial. Then, my all time favorite, is the rubber ducky usb/flash drive with an extra long cord so I can plug it into my computer. My husband plugged it in and it's awesome. It has been painted with glow in the dark paint, so it actually does glow in the dark. You should've seen us attempting to hide our face in a pillow with the duck in the darkest place. Couldn't wait until night time to see it Smiley


Thank you so much astrangeone! I love everything!!!

Okay, I lost the receipt and the original photos:

Stamps = $1 pack of four stamps (yes, one went BYE BYE)
Turtle Coin Bank = $1 + a bit of stash (it was spray varnish, but the tin was altered with an old book and a paper commerical for the Toronto Zoo.)
Dishcloth = $1 worth of cotton yarn
Seedbombs = 3 for $1 packages of seeds (I should have used more newspaper, but the newspaper was so hard to break down!)
USB Ducky = $1.50 (basic ducky) + acrylic paint (stash) + spray varnish (stash) + glow in the dark modge podge (stash) + usb flashdrive (around $5 - I bought it on sale)

** The fan, usb extension cord and headband are NOT handmade.  Duh!  Cheesy

Get ready to Wist!

I came back from a very tiring day - I was on call for some computer problems with my cousins...and found lacey0828's package at my door!  (Electrical tape is good, no?) Thank you very much!  I love it all, especially the squishy foam sheets pillow.  (I'm going to take it into my dorm room for school in September!)

My partner is very good at the stalking process.  Everything I wanted I got!  ATC's to decorate with, a lovely purple frame (I love the fabric!), that PILLOW and the pendant!

Here are the goodies:
A cute card and a cute pendant!


"A Mad Stamper" frame:


Pillow mania - all handsewn!  (I want to squish it, and it's on my bed for a reason!)


ATC's!


Thank you very much, lacey0828!  I love love love love love <3 <3 <3 the pillow.  (I'm going to have to not show it to my gay friends otherwise.....it might disappear!)  Thank you!  Lovely job on the 1st swap!

item update-

ive also used a little bit of stash on each item, i felt that since we dont actually have dollar stores here but $2 stores it would be ok. the bulk of my items are the store bought items through Smiley

Ok I am dumb and forgot to bookmark the gallery, so I missed all the dollar store crafty goodness until now. 
Everything is looking great - Fluffypants, that lamp is so cool!
