I want to post a picture of everything I sent but I don't want my partner to see it until it arrives! Just for a sneak peek, here's the bookmark I made that was part of the package:

Hey guys!  I got my envelope from Suereal yesterday and it was totally frikken' sweet!  Check it out:



Everything arrived in a skull coated envelope (raaaaad)  Inside was tonnes of stickers, embroidery stuff (including THE MOST AWESOME NEEDLE-BOOK EVER!) star shaped boxes, pop-rocks and pixie sticks (sugar high!) paper clips, buttons, brads, a post card (that now lives in the collage on the back of my bedroom door), A "fortune teller magic fish" (that made me, the boyfirend and the son laugh!) and other little goodies like a plastic spider, a skull shaped key cover and a funny sign about October being Donut month (who knew?)

Here are a few close ups of my favoritest items:



Needle-book!  OMG!  SNAIL!?!?!  Snails are my favorit thing EVER and I love the fabric it's made out of! (Green and purple are my fave colours!) little scissors too!  This needle-book has it all.  It will now live in my purse because I want to carry it with me forever and always.



Inside the needle-book... Rainbow embroidery floss!?  Suereal, you are just the best person I ever didn't meet...  Cheesy



Chipmunk paper clips!  How cute are they?  And interestig little buttons!  I love buttons...



The "Donut Month" sign!  Hee hee!  I'm going to find a plac ein my kitchen to put it because I love it so.

Thanks Suereal!  You are way too awesome!!!  Grin Grin Grin

*giggle* "blush" AAwwwww Grin

I'm so glad you liked it all!  That was the first time I have ever made a needle book/kit, but I think I will be doing it again.  I was pleased with how small it came out.  I just went back to Diaso (a kind of Japanese dollar store, cept a million times cooler) and they didn't have any of the little scissors!!  And the card by ManWomen I have been carrying around for hhhmm..25 years?  I found it in the magazine pile when I was working the recycling depot one day.  He is a rally interesting Candian artist who is covered with sacred swastika tattoos from all over the world to take them back from the bad connotation from WW2.  As soon as I stalked you I was like, "OH! THAT is who that is for!"

The tin donut card has been in my stock pile for a long time too.  I'm close enough to Seattle to be able to go to Archie McPhee's once in awhile (well, before they moved from Ballard at least.  Now I will have to make special trips...if I ever have money again heheh)  Anyway, the stuff in the shop is waaay cheaper then on line, but it is worth looking the web site up.  You can get Handerpants: tighty whites for your hands.  And bacon flavored tooth picks...or bandages.  It's just the funest place.

And it is pretty clear I couldn't have left one thing out of the envelope, so the postal rules be dammed! Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
