Here's my fabulous package from our organizer Xandrigirly...
First some shimmery roll up beads.  I like all the different textures and colors she used.

And some rainbow-y bottlecap earrings that are really cool

This necklace that pictured so dark for some reason.  I really like the color.  The stone in the middle fell out, even though everything was wrapped well. Some postal worker probably jumped up and down on the package or something, judging the shape of most of the boxes I get.  I'm pretty sure that's how that was supposed to go, since they wrapped together.   Wink

Then there was the big bag of all kinds of funky buttons.  I don't know which I like best.  The rainbow flowers are my favorite.  No,... the strawberries!  The flower shapes, maybe.  Ooooh, what about the pink textured cherry blossom?  They are all really cool.

And then the barrettes.  As soon as I unwrapped these, my daughter walked up and said, 'oooh look, this ones for me, and this one's for you!'  I told her she could borrow it...  Wink  She's been grabbing up quite a few of my swap things lately... But she treats everything very carefully and has never broken anything I've made her either.  So, the shimmery leaves are 'mine', and that's okay cause that barrettes is beautiful, too. 

So far she's asked to wear the rainbow hearts an awful lot.  So, she might have just stolen it permanently.  She wore it to school this week, and yesterday made sure she got dressed into a rainbow tank dress for the party we were going to, and she asked to wear it again.  And made me take a picture so she could see what it looks like.  So, there's that shot right here... 

Thanks for everything Xandrigirly, and for organizing.  Hope there's another polymer clay swap next year!

I uploaded pics of my package to Xandrigirly because she was having camera issues when she got it.  First some rainbow beads and a pendant.  I suspended some of the beads and letters in resin which I've been playing with lately.

More rainbow beads.  Because she likes rainbows, and I love making these swirly beads out of different colors. 

These buttons and the next few things were replicated or based off of Xandrigirly's pinterest.  I really liked making them, and made myself a set too. 

Pinterested earrings:

Based on a pinterested necklace, but that one wasn't made of polymer clay. 

This bracelet I made to go with the cloud necklace, since its a moon and stars bracelet.  The moons, which didn't picture well have craters.  More beads I just love to make.

These are some little charms I 'stuffed' with clay because there didn't seem to be enough purple in the package.   Huh

And a purple steampunk barrette

There was a polymer clay cake charm and a few other beads and buttons I didn't take a pic of cause I was in a hurry when I sent, and there were just a few each of the beads and buttons. 
I'm glad you liked everything Xandrigirly, and hope you find the beads and buttons useful making things in the future.  It was fun crafting for ya!

Very cool kimcherry!  Both packages.  And I must say I like how your letting your daughter understand these are your things.  I find it sad when someone says, " My "which ever kid applies" STOLD this from me.",  Parents deserve some respect for their things!  Your doing your daughter a great service to by teaching her about boundaries Grin

kimchery, that stuff is awesome!

X- those clips are so nice! do you mind sharing a little of how you made the hearts? my husband was actually really curious!  Cheesy he thought they were braided, i thought maybe an extruder had something to do with it...

Hat a great idea for a craft knife!  I bet it is more comfortable to use too.  The bunny is adorable and that cane is so CUTE!

yes, it's really cool! i think the donuts are sooo cute. i also really like the craft knife, we use things like that all the time, but they're so plain. it's a really nice personal touch.
