Holy guacomole, man!  stacysews is prompt, talented, and funny as heck!  Grin  I received my swap package from her today, and I am SOOOO HAPPPYYYY!  (Unfortunately, I am unable to take and post photos, so I am going to post descriptions of the items, and stacysews will post photos shortly.)

Here goes:

-I open the box to find myself face-to-face with a life size mask of Oscar!  Whoo-hooo!  I just may go to work tomorrow as Oscar!  Grin

-Under that was a small stapler (with staples...perfect...at my job they only give you one strip of staples at a time, and I bought my own stapler  Tongue), jello, and altoids!

-A green recorder (now I just need to learn how to play some melodies!)

-A mini canvas tote that says "Finger Puppet Theater" with a photo of some of the cast of the Office!  Inside, are literal finger puppets of:  Jim, Michael, Oscar, Angela, Pam, and Dwight!  And they are wearing the same clothes that they do in the show and Michael is even carrying a "World's Best Boss" cup!  (I've already put on a puppet show for my husband!  Roll Eyes)

-A notebook covered in 'Hello Kitty' fabric...how clever! (To simulate a laptop cover...and no, I do not have a laptop, but I always use a notebook at work, so this is perfect!)

-A black apron with "I (shape of a pretzel to resemble a heart) Pretzel Day!"  AWESOME!

-A JIM MESSENGER BAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  In my fav color combo no less!  I am bringing it to work tomorrow to show it off! 

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU stacysews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

Oooh...Very nice, let the swap anxiety begin.  There are so many goodies, and reference so many points in the many seasons of the show.  I would love to see a close up of the puppet show.

I love the Dwight key chain, he's just so ridiculous and adorable.  The glasses are really nice, are they etched or painted?  And I don't really understand what is in the second photo, magnetic words and note cards?  Very nice package.

The second photo is a set of magnetic poetry but with all kinds of important Office words (i.e. narddog, beets, mung beans, False., etc). There are character magnets too and a magnet board for all of them to be on. The 'notecards' you see are actually some blank magnets in case I forgot some good words.

And the glasses are etched.

My package arrived from Miss Barbara yesterday... and I was totally spoiled!  Check out this all my fabulous loot:



Inside was a little something from everyone:  A recipe card box with recipes from everyone in the office (like Stanley's pretzels), an oven mitt, Schrute bucks & Dwight's green recorder, a Dundee, Kevin's M&Ms, an office clipboard (with notes), embellished envelopes, Office Stickers (I didn't even know they made those) along with some with cats (from Angela), A notebook, Herr's chips, Jelly Beans (from Pam's Desk), and even Cup-O-Noodles!  

It was so much fun unwrapping it all and my kids wanted to know the story behind everything so it was fun retelling the episodes that they came from.  My children were also in awe of everything and while we were unwrapping everything, they were laying claim to the contents.

And now... an action shot:


Thank you Miss Barbara for your wonderful sense of humor in putting together this great package!!

Finally got a chance to post the package I received from hautedogclothing. Here is everything:


There's a clipboard with my favorite Jim quote, an embroidery of an Andy quote, a sweet message board, magnets of all of the characters, a leash holder (from my wist) with my favorite character--Stanley--and tons of office supplies!

Here's the clipboard back:


Oh, and there are 14 notecards--all different with SA envelopes! Here are some of my favorite ones:


And the magnets (forgive the bad picture and my desk--it's pretty beat up from crafting):


Thanks soo much!!

Alright, finally finished with schoolwork onto the pictures!  Caution Image Obesity!

First some snacks to keep me going while looking at all my goodies (tennisgal86 had the same problem as Karen & Jim and had to go to 8 different stores to find some Herr's salt & vinegar chips:



Some awards for Office Olympics, I guess I only ever make it to second place (probably from eating so many snacks before the competition) but still pretty awesome (especially since I sent my partner an Office Olympics themed item as well):



Next is an item I requested but no way did I think they were going to be as awesome as this...

There are some really great images including the face of rabies, jim as dwight and the full title of the fun run (another of my favorite episodes)

Also some great coasters (they each have a hilarious quote and the office intake picture of the character who said the quote):



And the last "The Office" themed item:



I feel very spoiled and excited for this awesome new game...we don't really have any games besides cards at my house so this will be broken out very soon. 

And last but not least, my partner included a bracelet made by her SO which is so perfectly me, and actually fits my tiny wrist! 


Look it even matches the ring that I wear everyday!  (Weird how deformed my hand looks in this picture...I don't feel like they look like that in real life.  It is kinda hard to tell in this picture, but it is a fork that has been reshaped and there is a beautiful blue gem attached somehow. 

And just so you know the fun and excitement was not just for me...

My cat loves the box! He has been play in it non stop since I opened it (in fact he was nudging his way in before I could even get the goodies out.

Thank you some much tennisgal86!
