Cealy - I'm so sorry about the little OWL - my son snatched him up as soon as I opened and I forgot about him when I went to take pictures!
Having said that - I can't get a clear shot of him! I don't know if it's because of my camera or his cute size.
If you have a picture, will you please post it?!  Undecided
He's the cutest little blue felted owl, sitting on a little branch.

Forgot to take one before I sent it! OOPS!
That's why I had hoped you got one! lol

two more wonderful packages!

I'm feeling now that it wasn't full enough  Undecided but it's my first swap, so I wasn't quite sure about what was expected. I thought sticking to the envelope size was super important, but now I wish I had cheated a little!

Nah you're envelope was wonderful!  the whole point of the swap(for me anyway) is to try and stuff that thing as full as possible while still just sending as an oversized envelope (which generally costs 1.50-2.00)  And if you have a regular postal lady (or man) sometimes they are a bit more lenient:)

Vallyncia - thanks for posting the pictures!

I'm glad you liked your package!

I've been enjoying the one you sent me too!  I don't know why you're worrying about what you sent - it's all great! Smiley
the pictures are on my wall (the haiku on the back is precious!), the jewelry bits are perfect (very me!), the caramals were delicious, and the lace was absolutely perfect - i am upcycling a bunch of stuff in my closet, and it will come in very handy!

thanks so much for being my partner!

I got my insanely packed package from sum1smuma.... I still can't believe this was all in one envelope.

Group 1: The Mostly Festive Stuff--> Gift tags - some festive, some not (the green ones are especially classy); Rudolph stickers - my favourite Christmas show; candy canes; Christmas-y Silly Bandz (so fun - I see why it's a craze that's sweeping the nation among kids... they're a shape, and then they're on your wrist... and then they're a shape again!), a tiny metal sled, and a Christmas postcard from 1916. Oh, and the things in the Saran Wrap are tiny multi-coloured jingle bells.


Showing off the other side of the postcard. And yes, I have a collection of vintage paper goodies, and especially love "communication"!


Group 2: The Supplies and Such --> Crossword Puzzle card, Swirly necklace, Flat Beads, Peace Sign charms (I'm excited to find a perfect use for these), Mini Sticky-Back Toadstools, Little Cake that I think is actually an eraser, bag of nice smelling things that made my package smell lovely, Iron-On J (for Jessica - that's me Wink), more tags of a different sort, 2 vintage handkerchiefs, and a kitty pin


One of the "Big Items" (you can fit big items in an envelope!?) - a "travel emergency kit", or at least that's what I would call it. Nice little tin, with a lot of emergency stuff! I moved the bandaids so the rest was visible. I'll have to remember this the next time I go away!  


The other "big item" - A Travel Journal! - complete with a J on the front, nice pages, and a few little stickers and such throughout.


Thank you so much sum1smuma.... you grasped my likes perfectly, and everything in this package is so useful and "me"! I had a lot of fun with this swap.

Seriously - we need to start a thread on packaging tips, for shipping - I am stunned by what people can stuff into envelopes.  This is like a clown car at a circus!

I had a blast too. I wondered if I had put a disclaimer about the travel tin, so I am glad you knew what it was.

That made me laugh and gave me visuals! I measured and checked and it all fit into a regular card envelope and I think there was some space in the corners, so I could have squeezed a few more things in. Wink I am in for the next round!

I keep forgetting to post pictures of my package from Dontmindtherain! So I figured sketchy lighting be darned, if I didn't do it now I'd forget.


Some holiday cards, gift tags, crazy looking cd that I unfortunately haven't had the chance to listen to yet, and pretty snowflake fabric, which is my favourite part. I feel like I'm forgetting something, which is quite possible... I know one or two of the cards got used already  Wink
