She sent me a lovely cute box that I will keep my love letter in that my partner sends me while hes currently on deployment, as well as 2 bookmarks, valentines stickers, earrings, vintage cards, cameo magnets, pearls she knotted by hand, rubber stamp, and heaps more! Thank you so much! And here are the photos!

 Cry i don't know why my partner hasn't posted pics yet, I do know she is moving. So maybe her camera is packed away and it's not something you need right away. I know I've moved acouple times and it's true. But I can't find my pics I took..... Huh.

If I can find them I'll post some for everyone but other then that I don't know.  Sad

Sooooo sorry for taking so long!!! Im not moving, just have a crazy busy life at the moment taking care of my mom, working and going to school.

So first I have to say that this is one of the best swap packages I have ever gotten. Jeannebaby and I seemed to be on the same wave length, seeing as we sent each-other a few of the same type of things. Second Jeannebaby has some amazing wire skills!!!

My great box!! I love that she used the book shaped box, there was more than once that I almost bought and used the same one!!!


Whats that? Boxes inside the box? Wonderful!!! They were painted as well


A wire and bead sun catcher that blew me away when I unwrapped it


Leaf necklace and bracelet set, which I have wore a few times already.


From Right to Left, Two water colors that are signed from Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett(they are meant to be bookmarks but I think Im going to frame them.) two cross stitch book mark canvas with floss to make them (there is a pattern included that says dont judge a book by its movie! I love it!!!) A heart pin cushion, and a needle book with the letter B on it (for Bennett I think)


Lots of fun wired and beaded goodies. From wine glass charms to purse and cell phone charms and four pairs of earrings. There is also a good sized piece of beaded ribbon(not sure what else to call it) that will make a great accent on a bag or pillow


A beautiful silver ring, that fits perfectly and has only come off so the picture could be taken.


Book of buttons


A lovely draw string bag that the box was is.


Some Beautiful white on white fabric and lace, which I cant wait to use!!

Oh yay, I'm so glad you got the package, Bec!   Even more glad you like it all.  So, how hard was it to get the lid off?   It kept sticking while I still had it, I imagine it got good and stuck while traveling.   Tongue   It was tough to let go of it, but I'm glad it has found a good home.

I received my absolutely fantastic package from imera yesterday! I was hoping to wait until the light is better to take pictures, but we have more gray days on the horizon and I'm too excited to wait, so here they are! Excuse the quality - they in no way capture the loveliness that imera sent!

First, the individual items all wrapped up and numbered:


Parcel number one was this lovely scarf, studded with little jewels:

The colors are absolutely gorgeous, and look great with my hair, if I may say so myself.

Parcel number two was probably my favorite. My first hoop! It already has a place of honor on my wall!

Another shot that shows off the wonderful textures a bit better:


And then the main event - the box itself!


Books and dried flowers! Imera could not have picked better. I am a total book worm and love dried flowers more than live ones (probably because I can take care of them :/).

The contents:

Yeah, those chocolates lasted about 10 minutes.
Cameos!

Some lovely jewelry:

Imera said that she painted the necklace. I am in awe of her skills.
And lovely vintage stationery:

How sweet are those scallops!

Imera also sent along the paper for the stationery...

...and some delicious candied almonds!

Thank you so much for everything, Imera! It's all lovely. You made my first swap fantastic!

How lovely stuff StarFire sent Cheesy a lot of goodies there. The box is really pretty.

And the items Jeannebaby sent. I love the sun catcher, such lovely colours.

I'm also really glad my package arrived (was starting to worry someone jealous of the items might have stolen it Tongue ) Great that you love the hoopla, I do as well. It was so much fun to put the whole thing together. The flowers are actually paper flowers, tried with real flowers but they smouldered up so I had to change that idea.

The gallery looks wonderful!
