(So sorry I posted in the wrong place before!  Undecided)

I got my package from MargieJ on Saturday!

Starting in the bottom left corner (but skipping the box!), there was an appliqued tote bag, a pink and purple potholder, 2 beaded sun-catchers, and a wall hanging with "THIMK." (For more about thimk, go here.http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=720433)

Here are the two sun-catchers, which I have put on my crepe myrtle!



Thank you, MargieJ, for making my first swap a great one!

The wall hanging was a result of having made the tote bag and realizing I had put the front piece with its appliqued butterfly upside down!  So had to take bag apart and make a new front piece with a different appliqued butterfly.  So I thought about it and decided to not throw away the first piece, so glued it on backing and it became a wall hanging.  Taught me to "thimk" before I cut, or certainly to double check!  LOL!

Margiej I was wondering the same thing.  I don't think there's another page, but I don't know....

I received, but I've been having computer problems (a computer virus necessitated a reinstall of windows, and I still don't have all the drivers put back), and the last two weeks have been a bit nuts.  And the awesome t-shirt that Glamis gave me was in the wash when I took the pictures of the amazing painting she did, and the cool headband and bobby pins that she decorated (and some really cool ceramic butterflies that came with paint, that I'd kind of like to paint so I can post before and after pics), not to mention the gift bags she made for everything.

I'm hoping to get things updated so I can upload the pictures from my camera today. Yesterday, it took me close to an hour to get my printer working (HP stinks). And it still won't scan like it's supposed to.  So, apologies to Glamis, and I hope everyone who's waiting for pictures to be posted gets to see the pictures before August. Wink

I received my package today!!! IT'S BEAUTIFUL!  I'll be posting my pictures in a little while once I get them all uploaded!  PICTURES!
The whole thing:


Close up of one of my red, white, and blue American University butterflies: ( Grin)


The other one:


And my favorite butterfly, a purple and green one!  (Two of my favorite colors!)


The text says: Yesterday is history, tomorrow's a mystery.  Today is a gift, that's why we call it the present.

This is so beautiful, I can't imagine how much work went into it!  I've already changed my entire dorm decorating plan to center around how gorgeous this is!

I'm sorry the pictures are so bad, Craftster wouldn't take my camera's photos, only my phone's.

Thanks bmd1011!

Finally got my computer problems resolved, at least as far as the camera goes, so here are my pictures of what the wonderful, generous, and talented Glamis sent me! By the way, this is definitely one of my absolute favorite swap packages ever!
First a group shot of everything but the t-shirt (which was in the washer at the time):

Here, you can see a painting done by Glamis (more on that in a minute), a ceramic butterfly kit that my kids have been eyeing enviously, a beaded headband and bobby pins that have some really cute butterfly beads on them, and four(!) bags made from sheer butterfly fabric to hold all my fabulous new stuff!
Here's a close-up of the painting:

It's really well done, and in some of my favorite colors! I love it!  I just have to figure out where I'm going to hang it.  While it would match the decor in the kids' bathroom, do I really want to sacrifice such awesome butterflyness to a bathroom (think of the moisture!) that I rarely go into (and I'd never see it!)?  I don't think so!  Maybe I'll hang it above my sewing machine as inspiration! 

While I didn't manage to get an action shot yet (next time I wear it, hopefully before I get a chance to spill something on it), here's a picture of the t-shirt that Glamis decorated for me:

It's based on a t-shirt from my wist, and it's really pretty! I wore it the day after I received, and I'm sure I'll wear it lots more!

And here's another picture of the bags (I think I got pictures of all the different butterflies this time) and the beaded hair accessories:

If you have a better picture, feel free to post it, Glamis. I'm afraid my camera didn't do justice to the beads you picked out. The silver cut out butterflies are really pretty, and so are the green and blue butterflies! 
Part of the reason I sent late was that I felt that what I'd made didn't measure up to what I'd received. I hope it does now. You did an amazing job on my package, Glamis, and I hope you like yours as much as I love my package!  Thanks!

A last picture, as a teaser for Glamis (I hope it gets there soon!):
