Talk about FABULOUS packages...wait till you read and see what the TALENTED and GENEROUS Quaggy sent to me!
(Unfortunately, I am unable to take and post photos, so I am going to post descriptions and hope quaggy posts photos soon.)

Get a cup of tea, some cookies, and your reading glasses.  You'll be here awhile!  Cool  Here goes:

*Everything was wrapped in the cutest wrapping paper and bags, which of course, I saved!*
CANDY:  A bag of vanilla meringue cookies, a bag of red and green jelly belly jellybeans, and a bar of chocolate in an ORANGE  Smiley wrapper!
EXTRAS:  'Grow your own ornament', a lighthouse themed calendar, owl stickers, and patterns from Michaels.
SUPPLIES:  TWO sets of purse handles, round and square pendants to use with resin, dragonfly/bee/ladybug charms, a skein of orange varigated yarn and two skeins of choc. brown/turquoise varigated yarn.
CRAFTED ITEMS:  An orange colored/different patterned scrappy made bookmark with beautiful beaded strands of clear beads on the end, a creme/pink/brown colored/different patterned scrappy made bookmark with the most amazing beaded dragonfly attached to the top of it.  My description doesn't do it justice.  You will just have to wait for the photo.   Roll Eyes  A very BIG and orange and owl themed thread catcher which seems like it would be great for holding items other than just thread, and is in use as we speak, a sewn "pencil case" (which is too beautiful for holding pencils) made in a great pink/white/black/bright yellow patterned fabric, with holes in one end to be put in a binder and on the other end-attached to the zipper-a georgous black beaded zipper pull.  AN ORANGE SCRAPPY THEMED (with owls too) WALLET!

And the bag to end all bags...the bag she made me...owl/flower/leaf/woodland animals fabric with a button/loop closure, two handles, tons of pockets inside, and IMPECCABLE workmanship!  Words don't do this justice either.

I love swapping with quaggy, and not just because she is generous. Roll Eyes  She really goes the extra mile to find out what her swap partners can use or want, and then seems to give 110% in making said items.

THANK YOU SO MUCH QUAGGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I received my AMAZING package from amnesia a couple of days ago.  Unfortunately, my camera and computer apparently aren't talking to each other right now so I haven't been able to post my photos.  The bag was jam-packed and actually leaked a little into the surrounding box.  Crafted items included a gorgeous scarf and a delightful mug rug, and it was packed with supplies including paper, fabric bits, whimsies, tea, and cookies (tea and cookies are craft supplies, right??).

Anyway, I'm leaving for a few days over the holidays, so you will have to wait until next week for me to figure out photos, unless amnesia decides to post her own (I told her she could if she would like to).

I love this swap!

I received from **myjello** a few days ago but DH borrowed my camera to take some pictures of projects for his new employer, and now the Craftster pic upload is causing me grief.  Oh well, that is why I have alternatives.

She sent me a lot of treats and some really neat things in a bag made with a really cool dragon themed fabric...



CHOCOLATE and other treats - DH is trying to lay claim to some of the crispy Santas - HAH!  As if!!!!



Dragon print tote - love this fabric



Fluffy, soft fleece scarf, that was also packed in a matching bag



Wrapped in the scarf for safe keeping were these beautiful marbled ornaments



A whole whack of stamps - my favourite is the doggy one!  A tape dispenser that looks like a lime life saver, and a star for my jar of stars, as we are both in that swap too!

Thank you Karli - I love my package!  Now off to hide the Santas from DH!
