 Shocked  I just received from JessyShik and unfortunately, I can't post photos, but I WILL type out a list describing the goodies she sent me!  (And then I'll send her a PM to let her know I received and that she can post photos-thanks!)  Here goes:

(BTW...she added a 'spell my name' twist to the package... Wink)

-Bookmark...an awesome drawing of a fancy turtle that is colored in using my favorite color-orange!-it is laminated and on one corner is attached beautiful green stones, with a leaf shaped purple one, and a silver flower!  (the drawing is done so nicely, and the colors...if/when I get another tattoo, I may just get this as it!)

-Avian themed stationary...I can't even explain how she did it, b/c I don't know...but she did add color to them (they are different types of birds done in greyish/black)...very understated and beautiful.

-Resplendent fairy pendant...an absolutely georgous silver, oval shaped pendant with a fairy done in black with one purple wing and one turquoise wing...I have to get a special chain to wear this on!

-Bag for my water bottle...made with BEAUTIFUL ORANGE fabric!

-Adorable watch...otherwords, exquisite, extraordinary, beautiful, AMAZING!  This watch is just so beautiful that I can't even explain, you'll just have to wait for the photos!  However, I CAN say...Jessy attached a silver frog pendant to the end of it!  (BTW...it fits perfectly!)

-Really orange coaster set...all I can say is THANK GOODNESS for these...I was ruining the end table next to my couch...my throne for the summer b/c the fan is there and it is too hot to do anything else but sit (and have an ice cold drink!).  THANK YOU!

-Awesome smelling soap...as explained by Jessy:   natural goat's milk with organic honey, orange essential oil and orange peel.  All I know is YUM!  It smells delicious!

Not only was I spoiled...THANK YOU JESSY...but again, I marvel at the high skill level/ability of my Craftster partner, and not only in one area, but several (she can draw, sew, make soap....!)  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In exchange for her flat rate box of clay and fiber, jennilocker sent me a flat rate box full of a variety of different craft supplies.

First up is a nifty knitter, a knitting book and some re-useable mesh bags

Next is an assortment of different types of yarn

And last is a huge collection of knitting needles and roving for spinning.

Thank you jennilocker!!

More great (and early!) packages. That'll keep you busy for a while, UntouchableFace!

Wow, seems like you got an amazing package MissBarbara. It's a pity we can't see photos, it sounds like JessySihk made some great stuff.

And they're all just as gorgeous and beautiful in real life! Smiley (I'm so embarrased, I didn't realize the pictures were up until today, I'm sorry)
Thank you!  Kiss
My partner hasn't had a chance to post what I sent her (and she received) yet so I thought I would share.. It was fun to make and I hope she gets good use of them :-)

This is a hand wire wrapped freshwater pearl necklace and earring set I made:


These are what I call "convertible earrings".. I make three different sets for one set of earring wires.. so depending on your outfit you can change the set out.. everything was hand wire wrapped by me :-)  The set on the far left is genuine turquoise.. the top right are faceted jet glass.. and the bottom right heart is swarovski crystal with faceted multi color glass bead dangles.

Miss Barbara- The package sounds absolutely wonderful!

Untouchable- The flat-rate box must have been stuffed to overflowing!  What a huge haul of pointy sticks! Wink

The Pin(trest) are mightier than the sword.

I received from Nannyem today and what a great package it is!  We swapped four items each, ENJOY!!!

The packages before I opened, wrapped in long beautiful ribbons:

First I opened the small general, three very cool notebooks:

Next was the small "garage sale fab", a deconstructed men's watch made into a super sweet pendant neclace:

And next (one of my favorites), small "coffee" themed reusable *duh* embroidered coffee sleeve:

This one is amazing, the medium, so awesome collage (it's so pretty and glossy so the pic does not do justice):

I hung it on my the wall in my craft room immediately (just below a coffee sticker collage made my nannyem as a Christmas present):

Nannyem's daughter Sofia colored this wonderment for me, she said it was a picture of Sofia and Sarah(me):

Here is everything after unwrapping:

I love everything I have gotten, thank you so much to Nannyem for crafting these beauties for me!  Hope everyone has as much fun IYP swapping as I have!!!
