Am I the first to post pictures? Huh! Well, my camera died on me while taking a bunch of pictures today so I'm missing one item, but maybe my partner can help me out...?

Anyway! To the pictures! Firstly, the box itself was amazing:



Next we have Mario/Zelda sticky notes, a Zelda pencilsharpener, and a Mega Man X container!



Just look at the paint job on this thing; amazing!!



And next is a carry-all... and if a carry-all is a mode of transportation for stuff, then in Starfox...



An Arwing carries people! Haha!  Cheesy Too funny, too funny!

I also got a nice teacup with a gold Triforce painted on, but this is the item I didn't manage to photograph. But it is lovely, just like everything else~! Thanks so much BoomerBile, you really represented something from every game I mentioned!

Wish I took more than one pic, but it was RIGHT before send off.
Here is a shot of everything I sent out. Bunnie's pics are so much better.
Now, I need to make a light box Roll Eyes


Glad you loved everything. ^_^
Can't wait to see your package.

Hey girls, I received from our lovely organizer! Smiley
I didn't take any pictures yet, because I wanted to use our lightbox at work - was running late this morning, so I forgot to take the items with me..
I'll post them tomorrow though, so you all can be super jealous! Grin

I recieved!!!! I swear this is the best swap yet!!!!  I hope you like your stuff as much as we like ours!!  I don't even know where to start.  OK, first up is an awesome Nintendo wallet, I swear I had to start yelling at the boys to stop running away with stuff so I could at least get pics first! Cheesy I told Aidan that he can't have it cuz he has no money but he didn't care, he started looking for small toys to put in it.


He wanted me to hook it up to his wii so he could play with it  Cheesy but I showed him the cords gone but the buttons still worked!!
Then we got this super nice DS case.  I LOVE it!!!  Its in my fave colours and everything.  The boys weren't interested in it cuz it looks girly, then I opened it to take a pic of inside and put a couple of games in it just to show the pockets and I lost it, lol.  Liams filled it with his games and his DS, but his DS doesn't fit cuz its an XL, but does he care? nooooooo.  Tongue


Then I had to take this pic on my fridge cuz these were gone as soon as they were opened.....TETRIS magnets!!

THEN...yes theres more!.......a snakes and ladders game, hand embroidered....WITH A TWIST!!!  Heres "Chomps and Vines" You climb the vines and slide down the chain chomp!!  How cute and creative is that?!?!  AND thingsivemade says this is her first time embroidering!!  AMAZING job! AND the pieces are mushrooms!!! All in different colours!



AND lastly, this one is all mine, cuz its too big to fit on the boys arms!! Believe me, they tried!!  Cheesy Cheesy  I LOVE IT!!!
A triforce and hearts beaded bracelet!!!


Seriously this stuff is all amazing!!!  Thank you so much Therese!!!  I can't wait for you to get your stuff.

Yay! I'm really thrilled you liked everything! It was tremendous fun crafting for you, I got to be so incredibly nerdy and crafty at the same time!

 "Chomps & Vines" was easily the favourite amongst my test subjects (my childish friends) and gamer approval was heartily given for the other stuff (those same childish friends Cheesy). That wasn't my first time embroidering but I am still fairly new at it so it counts as the longest and hardest thing I've ever spent embroidering something!

 I'm really glad you enjoy it all, I can't wait to receive your package!

Oh my crap, that stuff is amazing!  I love how the DS case looks like a little purse!  The controller pouch is way cool, those magnets are so fun!  And that game looks like it has so much work put into it.

I received yesterday from Undersea-sun and I was so excited!! Here is what I received!

Some prop items: beer bottles from Bioshock, my boyfriend was really excited about them Tongue


I had told Undersea-sun that my boyfriend loves the corrupted core that always says "I'm in space!" from Portal 2, so she made me this little box! It looks really good and there are a lot of details, I love it (and my boyfriend too!)!!


Some little patches, a Zelda and a trusted companion cube!


This is so cool! Some lightswitch covers, there's a Dudbear one (from Legend of Mana) that is my favorite item in the whole swap and a Final Fantasy 7 one!


And we agreed on some extras and I asked for some handmade soaps. They are awesome! The brain one is vanilla pomegranate, the flower one is banana flower with poppyseads and the owl one is strawberry shortcake, mmmm!


The whole package!


Thanks Undersea-sun, I love everything!

My gooosh. That NES controller case is awesome, Chomps and Vines is DANG CREATIVE, I love the Space Core box ("hey! lady! lady. lady. heeeeeey. space.", and that Mario hat/scarf set is amaaaziiiing~ I don't know how you can knit something like that so fast, it would take me forever!

Aah, all this cool stuff is making me kind of nervous about my package!  Cheesy

My package is here from estar23!  YAY YAY for video game goodness! 


Here is the whole shabang!  A Katamari Dymacy frame, a Zelda tote, a Katamari Dymacy shirt (for the hubster), and a moogle stuffie!   oooOOOoooooo!!!!


Here is the Katamari frame, w/ a cross-stitched prince on it, which I adore!  I loooooove cross-stitches, and I just recently did my first one.  I'm so excited to get one!  The frame has fun random objects on it, including some super cute puffy stickers.  Na na na na na na na na na na na na na naaaaa!


A squishy and delightful moogle head from Final Fantasy.  It looks like it is made from felt, so snuggly!!!!  I think my new little friend will make a nice home for himself on our couch.


A bag w/ the triforce symbol from Zelda.  The triforce is so soft.  I keep running my hand over it in delight.  Mmmm, soft.  I'm a sucker for soft.


And inside the bag: EXTRAS!!!  I got stuffing, felt pieces, embroidery floss (its like she knew!), key chains, magnets and glass bubbles to make magnets, a tin, floss holders, a little sewing kit, and a mini magnetic frame.  Woo hoo!!!!  All stuff that will come in useful for later crafting adventures!


Katamari Dymacy shirt (for the hubby!).  Isn't it awesome!!!  Its so bright and colorful!  Is it an iron-on transfer?  Its so cool!  The hubby really likes it!


Close up shot of the Prince rolling his Katamari.


Uh, my love, that's not how it goes.  Silly husband!


Ah, there ya go.  The hubster modeling the wares.  He's pretty happy.  ^_^

Thanks for awesomely nerdy package, estar23!  I <3 it!!!!!

I LOVE that katamari cross stitch with the frame!

Here's what I got from average_fan

A cute hoopla with a sheep from Harvest Moon.  What stitch did you use for the sheep?  It's fluffy!


Kingdom Hearts Coasters


Katamari earrings and a Paopao fruit (the stitches on this are so tiny!  I'd never have the patience)


A Professor Layton inspired purse with plastic handles and a magnetic snap


And the thing de resistance: a sweet katamari tee in my favorite colors!  I don't know how you made this, but it looks professional.  I love it!  I didn't want to take it off to take the pic, so you get to see a weird angle.



Thank you SOOOO much, average_fan!

So glad that you like them Smiley
I took some pictures in our light box before I sent the pkg, hope no one minds me posting them

I used a "punching needle" from Clover for this - you work the hoop from the back and it creates loops on the back that look like terry!


I work for a clothing company and we produce machine embroidered and printed shirts - so yeah Wink
Just make sure you don't use fabric softener or the print will peel off...


Coasters with the Heart, Mickey, Crown, Paopu Fruit and Donald's Hat


The Purse was inspired by Prof. Laytons hat Cheesy


Also, looking at your photos, I noticed that I forgot to send you something.. expect a letter from me soon XD
I'll send it out today.

Some of you may notice that you have 2 video game swaps in your profile.  Not sure what happened with the feedback form (or maybe it was user error?).  At any rate, I opened a help desk ticket to get that fixed.

 A Rammy from Castle Crashers cross stitch magnet!


 A little Sackboy from Little Big Planet!


 Aaaaand....my very own Katamari Forver ball! It even has magnets so it can pick things up! I haven't tried it out yet, but I still love it!
