I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I got from bubblegum_phoenix, but haven't had time to post photos yet.

I am on my way out to work, but I wanted to get a couple up now. 


This is the group shot (although some things are missing)  A fantastic crochet book, a large chocolate bar, yarn, decorative thimble, postcards, mini llama and mini sheep.

I will post more photos, and more details as to why she sent everything tonight after I get home from work.

 Shocked Shocked Shocked  I received from my partner, CleanFeelin, today!  Unfortunately, I am unable to post photos, so I will type a description of what she sent me, and then PM her to know that I received and that she can post photos (Thanks, CleanFeelin!).

Keep in mind, that I do not have a "wist".  I DO, however, have a LIST of items/themes, etc...that I like and it gives my partner in a swap something to go on.  I received so many of the items on my list!  What a generous and talented partner!

Here goes: 

1)  A HANDCARVED 'Craftster' stamp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2)  A HANDCARVED ball of yarn with a crochet hook in it stamp!  It is soooooo adorable!

3)  Not one, but TWO ETCHED GLASS jars....FILLED WITH CANDY!  Ice cream is one of my themes, so she etched an ice cream cone on one, and a sundae on the other!

4)  A RIBBON ORGANIZER!!!!!!!!!!  YumJello made one for the 'Spell My Name' swap, and I LOVED it!  It was on my list and my partner made it for me!  AND, she put SEVERAL spools of ribbon in it!!!!!!!!!!!!  (Some were orange, and the box had orange in the pattern on it too!)

5)  Blank cards with envelopes!  I had stationery on my list and they are blank so that I can use my new stamps with them!!!!!!!!!!! 

She also included a really sweet note as well...thank you so very, very much for such an AWESOME package, CleanFeelin!

What a shame you don't have photos Miss Barbara, I would love to see your stuff, especially the ribbon organiser.  Hope Clean Feelin can post some for us all to see.  Sounds like a fantastic package.

Here are some more photos of what bubblegum_phoenix sent me in the first package.


She supports a few causes, and one is by buying the cards that are painted by people without hands using their mouths or feet.  She also sent 3 postcards of her area of New Zealand, and the face mask is one of the ways she relaxes.  I think this will be a great relaxing treat for me at the end of a long week.


Her favourite animals are sheep and llamas.  her favourite saying is "llamas wearing...." so this llama is wearing a pink feather boa.  I don't really understand the context of the saying, but perhaps bubblegum can clarify for us.  The thimble is because she just recently started collecting them and her favourite colour is purple.


This is something local because the Pohutakawa is a huge tree that bloom with red fluffy flowers.  I can't wait to stitch this up and frame it to put on my hoopla wall!


bubblegum's friends were worried I wouldn't like this book because it is used, but I *LOVE* it.  I have wanted to learn to crochet for about a year, and she says that this book is easy to use and helped her learn to crochet.


In order to use the book (and the yarn in the other photo) she sent along a crochet hook (which is her favourite tool).  I also wanted to put it in this picture to show the size of the chocolate bar.  Her favourite food is anything sweet (like chocolate and jelly beans) so she sent this NZ chocolate bar.


bubblegum has photophobia so always has to wear sunglasses (sunnies as she calls them) Smiley  this is a case to hold my sunglasses.  I love it!! I have been thinking for months I should make a sunglasses case for my purse to minimize the scratching.

I also got a fantastic pair of crochet slippers with a handmade polymer clay button on each.  I have been wearing them already, and I think the dog stole them because they are not where I left them, so that's why there isn't a photo.

Thank you so much bubblegum_phoenix.  I love it all!!!

Yay  Cheesy Im glad you liked everything.
The llama thing is just a random saying. It makes people smile when they try to imagine a llama in flippers and a snorkle mask  Cheesy  or in a pink feather boa.

With the face masks, they should be enough for at least two facials each time  Wink
