Lovely package! I've been meaning to frame crochet stitching in a frame without a glass so as to hang earrings off of it. Wink

I am so glad you liked everything Sweety!  I totally forgot to include a bio about myself, so I will make sure to write something up in the next package.  We sent very similar things to each other which was really funny.

I received from Sweety as well and here are my goods:

The Lot of things I got

A kitchen essential- A washrag and ninja cookie cutters which I can't wait to use!

Favorite color is green - A cute green box with buttons and origami stars, this is going to brighten up my computer desk

Made out of paper - Note cards and a small jar of origami stars

Smells good - Two small bottle of body spray (these are going right in my purse)

Related to yarn - Summer slouchy hat (I immediately put this on and loved it)

Something to wear - A green scarf and super cute necklace (that I immediately put on when I saw it)

Favorite character - Hello Kitty pencils and tattoos

Summer essential - Water bottle carrier and lip gloss (which will also go right in my bag)

Edible - Twizzlers, I am totally bringing these to work to snack on

Sentimental value - Breast Cancer flip flops, her mom passes away from breast cancer, this was really touching.

Package 1

I received from lacey0828 a few days ago and definitely feel like I know her a little better now. Take a look!
Something you wear on your body: A wonderful football tank, funny because I love football as well. She loves the Eagles whereas I am a diehard Chargers fan Smiley And we both are displaced fans.

Something that reflects your personal style: Music drawing. My partner was in choir and really loves music.
Something with your fav animal on it: Her fav animal is a turtle. She even has two of her own.
Something with sentimental value: A security blanket. She sent me one with silk lining because hers as a kid had silk lining as well.

Something that is your favorite: Teddy bears, she sent me a lion stuffed animal which as you can see, my dog thought was for her. My partner loves teddy bears and still buys cute ones she sees.
Something you collect: Seashells! I also collect them. Her favorite memory involves shells and rock collecting with her grandma.

Something that is a kitchen staple: Wooden spoons and seasoning.
Something related to fav craft supply: Record Bowl! She likes repurposing things and finds a lot of her craft supplies in thrift stores.
Something in your purse/bag: First aid items. She went to school for physical therapy and would love to get back into it.
Something related to non-craft hobby: A puzzle. My guy and I also spend some time doing puzzles like my partner and her husband do.

Interested in personal swaps!

Package One!

I received my package from FinRaziel on Saturday! I feel like we have a lot in common, and it was fun getting to know more about her. Here's what I got!

Here is a picture of everything neatly wrapped and numbered.

Something that helps you stay organized- This adorable pincushion. I love that the pins look like sprinkles!

Something with your favorite animal on it- Her favorite animal is a cat, so she got me this cute Hello Kitty beanie baby. I <3 Hello Kitty. Cheesy
Something related to yarn or thread- Sari silk yarn! So pretty!
Something that reflects your personal style- She wears a lot of black, but still dresses femininely, so she got me these pretty barrettes.
The fluff in this picture is my cat May who insisted on being in this picture. We'll get back to her later.

Something edible- She lives in a Polish neighborhood, so she bought me these Polish chocolates that I've already started eating. My grandparents were from Poland, so this was actually pretty cool. Smiley

Something related to your non-craft hobbies- reading is her favorite non-craft related hobby, so these are bookmarks from her favorite local bookstores.
Something local- Chicago magnet. She picked one out that showed Lake Michigan because I used to live a hop, skip, and a jump away from the lake and miss is terribly.
Kitchen staple- Sandwich container! I actually really needed one of these, haha!

Something with your favorite color on it- gorgeous knit flower headband. The blue of the flower is her favorite color...which sadly didn't photograph true to color.

Something related to reading/literature- The golden snitch from Harry Potter stuffed with organic catnip! She has recently started reading the Harry Potter series (so no spoilers!) and also has cats. My cat May absolutely went nuts for this! I wasn't able to photograph the package right away, but May managed to fish it out of the box on her own. I didn't want it to be ruined before I got a picture, so I had to take it away from her and put it on top of the bookshelf. She managed to get to it way up there too! Anyway, she loves it so much, that I decided to make a little photomontage:

May is totally in Hufflepuff btw!

Thank you for the awesome package Courtney! <3
