Oooh! I received the nicest package from jeannettew32 today! Thank you! I'll post pics tonight. Smiley NOW! (Craftster photohosting was being cranky last night.  Roll Eyes)

Okay, so not only did Jeannette send really early, she spoiled me rotten. Here's everything all together:

I'm sorry for the lousy pics... I have absolutely GOT to make a lightbox since I never get home before dark.

She made me a lovely peacock feather/leaf/amethyst necklace, a sweet little woodburned and rock-encrusted box, and a rock-n-recycling notebook (Which she wasn't happy with, but I really like! Smiley):

The necklace is so pretty! (Please excuse the cleavage and sunburn shot!)

Not only is the box really pretty on its own,
, it's full of neat stuff!

There is: a 'rock' stamp, all kinds of neat little rocks, including some stone arrowheads, tiny shells and a pretty larger scallop shell, a tiny glass vial full of small pretty stones, a cute bracelet, a lovely stylized goddess stone figure, a packet of smudging um... stuff (Can't think what else to call it!)(Also, did you make that? It smells amazing!), a peace charm
...and this awesome guy; her son made him for me- isn't he cool? I love his little hat!
Also, she sent a cute decorated tube full of even more rocks- yay!, rock candy and pop rocks- lol, star stickers and a star cardboardy thing...
....a pen that can be worn as a bracelet, a jar full of rocks and shells  from Florida, incense, and a card with even MORE rocks!

And, as if that wasn't enough, she even sent a wonderful gift for my mother:

It has a pretty decorated box, more smudging, another sweet little glass vial full of tiny stones, some shells and rocks and another gorgeous necklace!

Thank you so much Jeannette, you were so generous and I really love everything! Please make sure to tell Nick that I love the skully guy. Smiley

I feel the same way, EnginerdLisa. Hopefully that means we're both sending just enough for each other! : )

No swaps right now :_(

I received from bowlordie today and my package is great!

First off are some agate coasters. These are so cool!!!

a diamond/crystal embroidery. Love it!!!

One of the rocks was wrapped in this...it took me a minute before I noticed the skull in it. This is super cool!!!

The rest of my goodies...some really awesome painted rocks, a pin cushion inspired by a petoskey stone, a plant stake with spikes (a few came off but I am gluing them back on), some pop rocks, and some stone beads including a few skulls.

Thanks so much Ash, everything is great!

I love the crystal embroidery!  I searched and searched for a crystal cross stitch pattern, but never could find one, and I stink at making my own patterns.  I also like the garden stake, really cute.

What a great package. I love the painted owl rock the best and the diamond/crystal embroidery.

I hope everyone has a great week, J
