Woo! I know I haven't posted much, been busy with work and running the Doctor Who swap(it's completely finished now! Woo!) and I received from Averia! Cheesy YAY! I HAVE BEEN SO SPOILED! Averia and I have been friends for... geez... three years now? Two? Oh damn I've lost count. Anywhos! I was super excited that she wanted to swap with me, I've been trying to get her to do swaps for a while now Grin

ON TO THE LOOT!!!

First!


This is awesome, I can now hide things *evil laugh!* And I love the two little fairy charms, I'm so using those in a charm bracelet I'm planning.



This is so cute, I'm going to use it to hold business cards since my friend and I are going to start doing craft fairs and events! It's perfect size!



This will be awesome to hold a check book or ledger or what have you.



The insides! Woo!



I love this, it's poofy, awesome, and a note book. My three favorite things Cheesy!



Beautiful book cover, came with a pretty cool book! Never read it, but I'm now two chapters down Cheesy





Close up of the embroidery, so pretty!



Some extra goodies, I love these Cheesy How did you know I'm becoming a wino? Hehe



She sent a scorpion beanie baby... and I got home and I suppose she got lonely all day by herself and decided to perch herself right on my head!

NOW! For the best thing of all!



ZOMG THIS IS AWESOME! I used it to wake up hubby this morning, shot him like three times *evil cackle* Love this thing!! I shall keep it forever!



BOOM! All together Cheesy Loved it!

She also sent a little story of me being a captain and hubby being kidnapped, loved it! I guess I'm self centered because I could totally read more and more about it lol THANK YOU SO MUCH AVE! We will swap again!

Love that package! Hubby and I each have that same dart gun, to battle with of course.

I love the use of all the metallic thread!

I received from dharma_rebel yesterday and OMG! This has to be one of the most well thought out and crafted packages EVER!!  She was inside my head with all of the adorable things that she made me!  I have been having a rough few weeks and it seems like anything bad that can happen is happening.  There is absolutely nothing like receiving an amazing package from a super sweet craftster friend to make you realize that the world is still a good place. NOW ON TO THE PICTURES!!!!

                                    Are you ready to wist??

First let me start my apologizing for not getting pictures of everything before I dug into them....the wrapping was amazing and as well thought out as the beautiful gifts themselves.

First up we have BEAUTIFUL handmade notecards!!!!!!!! (Did I totally just sound like Bob Barker?)


The cutest flippable needle book EVAH!


Hair barrettes!!!!!!!!!


This is a book to put my sketch pad/pencils in!! Check out the pencils that she added little mushrooms to!! You can't tell the details of the fabric but there are owls, mushrooms, and woodland creatures on it! OH MY!!


RESUABLE SNACK BAGS!!!!!!!!


The above mentioned goodies plus the hand wrapped pencils (what an awesome idea) and a tin with freaking adorable tags that is also a magnet.  You can also see the origami box and some of the little inspiration tags that she had the goodies wrapped in.


Now hold on... I know what you're thinking...there cannot possible be anything else...
BUT you are wrong!!!
                      
                                    Rachel made me.............
                                                     the 1
                                                          the only................

                                        INFINITY DRESS!!!!!!!!!!


Please excuse the model...she has had no formal training.  And her boyfriend took the picture sitting down and we all know that is not how you take a flattering picture.
I did put on my fancy heels that I haven't gotten to wear yet because I had nothing to match them but now I do!!!!!!!!!!!

The dress is seriously the most comfortable thing I have ever worn!  I am going to spend all weekend learning new ways to tie the dress!

Rachel you are so super talented!  Thank you so much for everything!! I just hope you like your package a smidgen of how much I loved mine!
