Snake love.
Card love.
Even though I'm not your partners I feel like I'm learning so much about you guys.

Ooh, I need to read Good Omens. I should go put that on my list right now!

I received from the amazing OrangeKnickers!

Favorites
Yarn in her favorite colors and her favorite accessory - socks!

I'm a yarnie and love socks too!

Craft it
Jewelry - some steampunk key earrings and a music bracelet.

I love them both!

A head wreath for the Renaissance fair

OrangeKnickers is a fan or Renaissance fairs and I have never been to one. There was one near our house that we had plans to go to but time escaped us. This head wreath is beautiful! My little one has been wearing it non stop and I'm going to wear it when I garden. I love it!

Hobbies
Bookmarks!

We are both readers and these bookmarks are so fun! I love them! My favorite is the Harry Potter/Hunger Games mashup one. They are all so perfect!

Collecting - Make up!

I couldn't believe this. I am in desperate need of makeup and OrangeKnickers is a collector of makeup. The colors are all perfect. I can't wait to get dolled up. (As a mom of 3 1/2 it's tough to do sometimes. Wink)

Closer to Home
Pets
OrangeKnickers is a cat person so she made me this sweet little painting.

It is so cute! It has found a home right next to our goldfish tank.

Local
Can you believe Orange took this picture?! It's the wagon photo. This was taken 30 minutes from her home. Beautiful! I just love it!


The picture in the front is an extra she sent - a Steampunk themed piece of art. I love the details on the bird.

I have an awesome partner! I am loving this swap!

I received my package from RaraAvis some time ago and am just now getting pics uploaded. This in NO WAY reflects on the package... I've just been slammed with work. and then I *lost* the pictures in one of my appraisal files...

Anyway - on the the fabulousness!!

It was such a big package that I couldn't get a good photo with everything in it for an "overall" so it's in batches:


Hobbies: Cooking - Some lovely wooden spoons! (I love to cook too and agree, you can never have too many!)
Hobbies: Collecting - One of her main collectables are "things from different cultures" as she is an anthropology major. So the little brass buddha is representative of her collecting! (I love this and it sits atop my computer to remind me to find some time for calm)
Favorite: Fashion Brand - Free People - some warm and snuggly socks for the winter - these are so soft and lush it almost makes me wish for cold weather! (ok, not really! but I will enjoy them when the temps take the inevitable plunge!)
Drink: Pomegranate White Tea (wait... do you know me or something?!  Wink we have very similar tastes in many things!)
Favorite: plant! A cute cactus! looks great next to my kitchen sink!
Favorite: Freebie - Burt's Bee's lip balm - mmmmmm. Love this stuff


Closer to home: local - Stunning cards from Canyon CA - these are beautiful!
Closer to home: career - a pencil from the College of Alameda where she works! (This is a great one for me as I still use pencils every day for my work!)
Closer to Home: Holidays - Her favorite holiday - Christmas - These beeswax ornaments are a family tradition! they are lovely and will look awesome on our tree! (I will enjoy them whilst wearing my snuggly socks!)


Craft it: A little needle felted bird! This is so dang cute! I can't believe you've only been doing this craft for a short time! I love this
Craft it: Candle Making - since she was a little girl - a family craft! So cool! I LOVE THESE CANDLES! I use candles all of the time and these will be awesome for special occasions!



Extras!!! Lots of beads and stones and brightly colored bits of glass!!! Yay! And a colorful pouch to tote them in! These will all go to good use in my studio!

Thank you so much RaraAvis! I really, really enjoyed opening each parcel and learning about you!

I got the best box form Jexxican on Saturday! I love everything in it Thank you so much Jexx =)

Hobbies: cooking she sent me tons of samples of breads and dips from Wildtree, I've never heard of it but I can't wait to try it!
Reading: She was telling me about this book as soon as i finish the book I'm reading now I am going to start this one.  It looks so funny.





Favorites: Hoops, we are both hoopers so I had a pretty good feeling there would be hoops in my box =) Also some madlibs.  OMG I love mad libs!  I made my husband do like half the book with me hah!



Craft it:  Check out these wrist warmers, they are amazing.  Not only did she crochet these she also cleaned the fiber spun it and whatever else you do to turn it into yarn.  I don't know all the steps but they are great and I love them! To bad its 95 out and i can't wear them yet hah.  Also check out this little pin cushion, how cute is that little pumpkin?



Closer to home: A kit to make some little puppets for me and my kiddo to do and some fun things from Roswell, where shes from. 



Also some fun little extras!

Some great packages, ladies! I pinned that RenFest head wreath. And those hand dipped candles are GREAT! I remember making those when I was little.

Ruby, you are going to LOVE that book, I promise. It's way F'ed up.

All your packages look great! I love all the thought that went into everything. What a great idea for a swap, a "me" package.

rubylynns, those little candies in the round tin are so yummy! I put the tangerine flavor of that brand in my hubbie's stocking at Christmas and they didn't last the day. Wink

I've received from gozer! My package is so awesome! I'm about to head out to karate so I'll put up picks as soon as I get back.  Cheesy


This swap is so much fun! Smiley
