So endymion went above and beyond the call of duty for me. She says she checked my wists, but she must also be psychic, because she sent me things I have wanted forever that weren't on there. I hardly had enough room for everything, so, sorry for the pics being crammed full. Could be worse things that happen! Grin
First, was a beautiful card, hand made, which is fortunate that I read first because there was a note in it for later too. Then, there was the container and a bundle(dun dun dun). She had warned me in the card that I might never get the box shut again once I open it. Which was ok because....


....inside was packed and turned into a tiny circus, complete with crowd!



There were so many things in that box I can't even fit them all, but my favorites are the micro mini figures, including a tiny ballerina that I needed badly for a project. But every single thing in here was precious to me.But wait, there is so much more! The bundle contained beautiful fabric swatches and a ribbon that Rocky tried to make off with(he has his OWN). Inside was a massive amount of ephemera, of the likes I have never dreamed of. I seriously can finish like, 10 projects I am working on with this alone:



Handmade items included a zipper tentacle bracelet which I wore all day(my client insisted I show the nurse at the clinic because I was so excited about it). also a bottlecap necklace with a Cheshire lion(lol), two bunny magnets in bottle caps, and one with an eyeball. Also two medical silk screened buttons, and two silk screen prints.



Photo of more:



I think this post is already overloaded, but here is a pic of Rocky thinking he can do whatever he wants.There is so, so much more, but the cat's patience ran out and I feared for the life of it all. I was actually trying to pack it away when he rudely interrupted. Any closeups will have to be taken by my husband, as macro is not my forte. But this is seriously the most kind thoughtful gift I have ever gotten. I mean ever! And it's almost my birthday to boot! endymion, you rock!



EDIT: I really have to mention some more favorites from this, because there were so many! Of the tinies, there is a tardis(blue police box), baby, camel, clowns(which is the only size a clown should be) and mini fish, nautical and other themed charms. A whole bag of buttons, including florals, which I really need. Some wood scraps from a class her husband teaches, one of which looks like an outline of zombies to me(lol). Also, she sent things that are sentimental, and the bracelet was made from something from her mom's sewing box. There were postcards, which I collect(!), and the humorous thing about them is that they have these typed letters to doctors that look like vacation stories, but wind up being a pharmaceutical ad from 1957. Quote: "I have been taking one-half tablet of Methedrine before each meal and have lost 2 pounds already". Well I'd think so. Hee! So much more, seriously thanks again, hours of fun for me!

Good things DO come in small packages. Here is the proof from yzzilnaoj:



The jar is a paper mache-covered glass canister. Liz painted it in a 'Fiestaware' color - as I love bold bright colors.



Overview of all the goodies: ribbon, sequins, beads, game pieces (you'll laugh when you open your package, Liz), pin-back buttons, pendants and so much more.



Close-up of the pendants and some of the metal bits. I have started attempting assemblage art so these pieces will get me started.



Close up of the buttons and some glass beads.

But wait- there's more:



Handmade card  and some scrapbooking stuff. Liz designed the hummingbird picture and then gave me multiple copies in different sizes! The rainbow banner because San Francisco reminds her of rainbows, hmmmm, the drag queens in my apartment building will love this!



More paper goodies which I will use in the Inchie swap - postage stamps, stickers, lots of good stuff.



And my favorite thing - vintage photos.

Liz - thanks so much for a thoughtful package full of stuff I love. And thanks Meeka for organizing.

I received an awesome package from r0ckwithme yesterday. I love it when swap packages arrive in the mail. It always makes my day. without further ado here are the gushes and pics.

Here's a pic of everything before being unpacked. Some of the bits would've been in the coin purse but to fit in the small flatrate shipping box had to be emptied out.




Here's a pic of everything all spread out (a couple of plastic animals were snatched by my little ones and didn't make it to this second pic) There were a ton of little hair clips, bracelets, rings, platic animals googly eyes, buttons, charms, gaming bits and all sorts of other lovely little bits and bobs.





Here's a close up of the handmade items. They were carefuly packed in the super cool decorated box. The awesomest hands down is the small Falcor the Luck Dragon. I adore the Neverending Story. My son wanted Falcor but he's mine! Smiley There is also a friendship bracelet style of Auryn (also from neverending story) And 4 stitch markers for knitting/crochet which were on my wists. It's a very clever use of earring hooks and hair clips.





Here's a close up of a few of my fave noncrafted items. Everything was cool and will either be crafted with or used to distract my little ones so that I can craft.  I love googly eyes, everything is more amuzing when you put googly eyes on it. I also love butterflies(go figure) and the charms are awesome.
 



Thanks again partner!
