Haven't heard from Thunderchild about the parcel I sent her last week - so thought I'd share with you what I sent incase she's too busy to get online:

Camping bookmark and camping fingerlessmitts (for those cold mornings / evenings outdoors)
 

Camping journal and 2 cutlery / placemat rolls
 

also sent some camping stickers for the journal.
Hope she liked them all

    Catrinau & I both received from one another. I camp in a Tent that I made  here is a photo of it, and then the package I received

We use a blow up mattress or futons for our beds. The tent fits one king and two twins in here, we like to use rugs on the floor over the tarp and this leads to my Package

Aren't they cool. I Really like the colors the light blue one looks a little lighter in the photo then it is.
The long one will go the full length of our bed.  It feels really nice on the feet. But by far my favorite it the basket. for a couple of reasons one we can use it to hide mundane things in (modern stuff) Toe it will pack flat unlike the willow baskets that I have to worry about how they will fit in the car. Also it looks more yellow in this photo but is is a cool light brown like a basket.

neat stuff so far, I recieved LOTS from KrisKreates, but no photos yet - why is so dark and dreary today?  oh well the bright cheery bag sure cheered me up:) socks, a blanket, a beach bag, a geocache (now to find a good hiding spot;)),  snacks, stickers, and an embroidery box - I used to use the tiny bag my SIL brought back from Newfoundland, but when it was windy it kept blowing into the dirt if it was almost empy, now I can stick it in the box to sort my multiple projects I always have when camping:)  Pics tomorrow if it's sunny

It makes me sad that people didn't take photos and post them. I always think it is a sign that people didn't really like the stuff they received.

I'm processing my photos right now. Posting wonderful camping swap photos in a second. I absolutely love the things I received. I do archaeology and have been in the middle of moving to the next project. Sorry for the delay in posting.

I have recieved, some gorgeous stuff to, a bag, a blanket, some scrapbook stickers, but to take pictures I have to go outside with it, for the past 2 weeks since it arrived it's rained everyday.  Next day it's sunny and I have time then I will take pics:)

Here's pics, best I can get on my $1 camera, right now I just can't afford a new one.
The bag:

The geocaching kit, blanket, socks, hat (it escaped from photo, and although I normally don't wear hats, the only way to get my niece to wear hers is if I wear one, this is a much nicer hat than the old lady one I used last year from our costume box), stickers, and there WERE hershey bars and trail mix,but we couldn't wait until camping (we're hoping to get out around July 24th, we have to get the R.V repaired (new flooring, and engine work left,))


Thanks so much KrisCreates, I hope you recieved your stuff, I haven't heard from you in a while.

Here's the crafted stuff i sent to J_Kieviet:




The rediculously large beach bag that I made out of thrifted and vintage fabrics.  I figured its always better for a bag to be too big than too small.  The appllique on the front is the pattern from the lining fabric.



Fleece throw/beach blanket with matching applique.



some matching scrunchies



hand painted baseball cap with traditinal swallow tattoo design. I loves paintin'.   Tongue
