I received package 1 from queenofmarigold last week.

Everything was so nicely wrapped up:


1. Favourite food: Milky Bar chocolate (didn't even survive the weekend Smiley)
2. Favourite freebie: best of family recipes
3. Craft it ... yarn: i-cord bracelet made from yarn she got on a trip to the US
4. Craft it ... B&B: beeswax perfume (which is just perfect as I'm allergic to most perfume additives)
5. Hobbies ... collecting: candles because she has candles everywhere in her room
6. Hobbies ... writing: a notebook because writing is a part of her life and she tries to write every day
7. Local: some Violet Crumbles (loooooong gone by now Smiley)
8. School: reusable tote bag from the University of South Australia. The government has phased out plastic shopping bags and so one should always have a tote bag at hand



Thank you, queenofmarigold, for your awesome package!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

I've received my first package from Najaorama, too!  It's great  Grin  I can't believe how similar so many of our interests are.

Here is an shot of all of the goodies:

This is the best shot for viewing the amazingly beautiful orange fabric that she picked up during one of her relief work trips to Africa.

Here is a close up of the edge-of-the-cup-cookie cookie cutter & the prayer flags from her wedding:

Both are such great ideas!  She loves to cook & so do I...  Can't wait to make the cookies!  The flags are so simple and sweet~ I've already shared the idea with a friend of mine who is getting married later this year~

Here are the knitted lily purse, the bottle stopper & the package of mica:

Naja is learning to knit & this is a detailed & pretty project, so cute!  The bottle stopper is for making ginger beer...  I love that she & her hubby make their own beer~ Something that is on my to-do list this Fall!  And the mica is from an abandoned mine where she & her hubby often go hiking Smiley

Here is my favourite: the gorgeous flower/rhinestone hairclip (that I wore last night & am wearing again right now)  Cheesy  LOVE IT!!!


These Snoop Dog cocktail napkins made me laugh out loud:

Like Naja, I neither drink many cocktails nor particularly love Snoop Dog....  It doesn't matter ~ These are awesome! Smiley  We friended each other on Facebook when we were partnered for this swap and I've come to learn that Naja is not only a very insightful person, she also has an awesome sense of humour Smiley  I get a kick out of her funny posts quite often.
My bf & I are having a BBQ/party for the tightrope walk at Niagara Falls tonight and I can't wait to see peoples' expressions when they see these out on the table hahaahah

Lastly, Naja sent me a 9th item "just because" ~ a garlic shaped pincushion Smiley 

Just because she's a little random.  I love it!

I also really loved the Monet card that she wrote all of the descriptions in (see the first photo in the post)...  She didn't now it, but Monet is my favourite artist.  Happy accident.

Thank you SO MUCH for sending me so many cool things, Naja!  This swap rocks!!!   Grin

All the packages so far are amazing!
 I got Package 2 from TroubleT on Wednesday but this is the first chance I have had to post it. She is awesome!
First the group shot...

 I am completely obsessed with list writing and have about five seperate notebooks in my purse at all time. I just write everything down, twice. LOL! She gave me a notebook and an awesome notebook cover. I love it. It's small enough to slip in my purse but not too small that one thought fills up a page. And it has little pockets on the front and back cover. Love that!
  Here is a close up of it. It has a snap closure. It is on the super fantastic comic book fabric that she sent me! The fabric has Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man, and all the rest. I am a huge comic book geek. This fabric ROCKS!!!

 and she also added a get started kit for hooplas! I always see the coolest hooplas on Craftster. I have wanted to try them but I had no idea what you were suppose to do really. SHe has the BEST tuts on her website and all those different stitches look so doable when she explains them! HA! We will see. I have always wanted a Gizmo hoopla but I think I will start with attempting a Stay Puft guy. I think he would be a touch easier.
 I got a hoop, lots of thread, embroidery needles, Crayons (who knew you used Crayons?!) and some fabric.

 Can't wait to start!
 Thank you TroubleT. This box was so awesome. Have fun on your trip!

Gosh it's been so long I forgot what I sent. I'm glad you like the stuff and I'm glad those cocktail napkins are going to get used.

Great packages!   Grin

But I'm confused.  Okay, TroubleT, what do you use the crayons for?  Huh

Before you stitch right after you put the design on the fabric you color in the image with the crayons and iron off the excess wax with wax paper, it's to add some color to the piece without having to fill the entire thing in with stitches. Smiley

Ok, gozer, you just made me blush.
