now, it must be noted that i did not personally make every card -- i did make some, but a lot were from previous swaps that i knew i would not use, but would be perfect for kiddos!

I myself had forgotten to get  pictures of everything i was sending. I had planned to get a couple group shots but before I planned ot  send I put things in the box to check how much space I had for more things to make and realized I had no space left and then my mind skipped to must pack it all in now, and then forgot about picture taking hehe.
  If she has a cellphone with a built in camera she could send pictures from the phone to facebook and then save them from there . Or send to email.
That's probably what i'll be doing when i get my package.
 Or is she having trouble uploading them to crafster?

It is sad, but my phone takes much better pics than my camera. The pics still aren't very good, but they are better.

Don't touch that

My package tracking says it went out  for delivery today . My mailman came and didn't leave it Undecided  Huh , I hope another carrier comes by and drops it off , I have seen them do that before.
Hopefully I will be back here  a lil later with pictures to share.

Finally I am set up and able to get pics posted!  I am so sorry, Sugarsandwitch, for the delay.  You spoiled, spoiled, spoiled me and I can't wait to share the awesomeness with everyone.

People would be really upset if I posted all the pics I took (I think I took 20-30 pics total!), so for the full experience check out the pics in my gallery.   This is still going to be really pic heavy though, there is just so much to share!

>>NOTE:  Shoot!  Craftster Photo hosting is giving me fits now, and I haven't gotten all the pics uploaded.  I'll keep trying, you simply must see all the awesome...<<

Here's a full list of everything that was in the box:
- Incredible Hunger Games Woodburned hanging
- Sweet hand drawn fairy in a gorg frame
- "Believe", "Wish" and awesome blue stars (these are going near my "jar of stars" / earlier swap!)
- Star candles and mini star playing cards
- Handy lingerie bag (this will be great to have, versus using the plastic bags in the hotel rooms)
- Hand crafted gnomie with sweet blonde braid
- A "stars" themed bag (this will be great for groceries!)
- A gorgeous hand painted & decorated travel first aid kit (SO useful!  I'm constantly traveling and it's a pain not to have little things like band-aids, aspirin, etc.)
- A fairy suncatcher, hand made by her son (sweet!!)
- A wooden Buddhist Mala (prayer necklace)
- classic pink flower cards (always nice to have, to send with swaps!)
- A Garden sign - "Keep off the dirigible plums" (Harry Potter)
(YES, I'm STILL GOING!  Can you believe how lucky I am?!)
- Bits n' bobs, which include:
  - carrot gardening themed earrings
  - tricolor holly leaf earrings
  - An awesome Hunger Games bracelet (I was so sorry to hear about the trials you had with that one, sugarsandwitch!  It is gorgeous just the way it is with the Arrow, the cornucopia, Pres. Snow's white rose and Peeta's pearl)
- Hand made puppy snax which my dogs ate right up (who can say no to puppy eyes?!)
- PERSONALIZED Harry Potter letter!  It is the acceptance into Hogwarts, with the uniform, course book list, other equipment, and all!!! (Yippee!)
- OH!  And, origami instructions, so fun!

And now for pics of some of my favorites (there's just no way I could include pics of everything, it would totally crash folks' computers with all the shots!!!)

Hunger Games (I think this is my favorite - is it bad to pick favorites?  I just love it!  So awesome):

The Hunger Games bracelet and gardening / holly earrings:

The hand drawn Fairy:

The seasonally awesome season-changing art (it was hard to get good pics of this one, but you can get the idea of the changes):

I'll keep working to get the other pics, I want to show you the awesome little gnomie!  Only the pic of her back and sweet braid made it so far...

Thank you so much, sugarsandwitch, you spoiled me rotten!  You have an awesome set of different talents, I wish I were so talented.

Nothing like a gallery full of great stuff to get me really in the mood for another swap. My partner sent me wood burned art and I really like the Hunger Games wood burned hanging. I'm thinking of getting into pyrography myself. Any newbie tips?
