I received from the lovely wx2dzug yesterday, and I feel she really spoiled me. She sent so much!


Here's everything together. It's like a rainbow!
I don't want to overload the thread, so I'll make some thumbnails below.

I love the circle beads, they remind me of tigers!





A few of my favorites from the blue group.


Really loved these ones, the flowers are so cute and the sun and moon ones were really neat.

Loved these green ones.

Some of my favorite green ones.

Love this assortment of purple beads.

LOVED these wood beads!

She sent me tons of charms and spacers. Loved the hand ones.

Random jewelry making things. She sent me some bookmark thingies that even I didn't know I wanted, but now that I have some, I'm super excited to make some cute bookmarks!

Super cute charms. Loved the animal ones.

I have been wanting more of these kinda charms! Absolutely adore them!
And lastly...

A gorgeous necklace! Love it, I wore it the day I got it!
Thank you soooo much wx2dzug!!!  Cheesy

Organizer Note:  While doing some swap housekeeping this morning, I started checking DC#'s on the USPS website.  It seems 6 packages have been received that I have not gotten any PMs about.  Some of the packages were received 6 days ago!

Ladies, this is unacceptable.  You MUST send a PM to your partner AND myself when you receive!  

I do note poor communication and lack of picture posting in feedback.

You never realize how long a few days are when you are waiting on your computer to be fixed.....anyhow! Problem solved, so after days of waiting, I can FINALLY post pix of my wonderful soup VW69 sent me!  

First off, she made these wonderful earrings- favorite color is red and the other is a dragonfly with beads- just adorable!! She did a great job!  (Sorry so blurry, I just wanted to get them posted!)


next some great beads- (I really love the red one in the bottom corner- it has raised white dots on it!), the blue group on the left hand side has some wonderful gold lines going thru them, and there are some odd shaped beads that look like they're from shells (the dark ones, pink ones and peach ones in the top corner)- soooo neat!


more great beads, the deep blues ones are so pretty!


and finally some beautiful white ones, metals, spacers, bales, endcaps, and two feather charms with turquoise beads (my boys wanted to snag those!!)


Thanks so much, Karen- I feel very spoiled!

now I wish I didn't have to work today, I'd rather start beading..... Wink

I received from timpani~jax today, and she really sent the most gorgeous beads, a very nearly magical package! Thank you thank you thank you! Happily the envelope was stuffed into our mailbox, so I got some work done on an overdue essay and can now play a little with my shiny new beads...

But first, after having battled with the photo hosting which decided it would only load one or two pictures in one go today...

First, everything together (imagine a very happy and giddy girl behind the camera, can't wait to play!):


The Soup:

I love cream, and teal, and purple, and black, and brown, and recently pink, as well. There is so much in there, purple flowers, lovely black lampwork beads, seed beads, tiny shiny pink hearts and crystals, cream pearls, teal leaves & teardrop shapes, black glass beads (always a staple for me!), strands of seed beads, great wooden beads in different shapes and sizes, flowers, cubes, chips - many many things that would have made me happy if this would have been everything already. The red wooden beads are not that flashy in real life, it is rather a subdued tone that I like a lot!

But that was only half of what I got, see:
Lovely beads in brown: 4mm light brown wood (perfect!), regular seed beads, cat's-eye chips & shapes! Did I mention I love brown? And I distinctly remember posting just here on this thread that I was going to do something with chips...


More seed beads and tubes in black tones (which is what I mostly use, so perfect!), and amber coloured iridescent large seed beads that I have had in a smaller size already for years, and now I have enough to finally make the necklace I've always wanted from them! (happy sigh!)


Aaaand Spring colours, white stone chips and light rose pressed matte crystal shapes, vintage cream pearls and more seed beads:

Some of that will go on a present for a very lovely girl for her second birthday...

A picture of the strands & the chips on their own, just because I love them. The seed beads are very small, 2mm max. And as you can see, one of the teal seeds decided to go live in a wooden bead. We might have to talk about that, though.


And what I nearly love more than the beads, because I've wanted them forever: timpani sent me two tiny glass bottles, that have been on my wist for ages - ever since I saw one on here, filled with origami stars. Now I just have to learn how to do those. And the cell phone thingies, very handy to put one on my phone! Oh, and more beads, of course! See the pretty shade of the triangular ones? Goes perfectly with some of my delicas and size 12s! I told you, magical!


The lovely purple necklace & earrings I got, so pretty! The Celtic design is just what I like, it really goes very well with the purple. And I found 4 more of those flat round purple beads in the soup, so I can even add a bracelet and maybe a ring!


Thank you so much timpani~jax for making my first swap a great experience! I really love everything and am already planning on explaining to DH why beading is more important than helping him with the dishes and stuff...
