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 recveived my last package from Helena Puck last Friday. It's hard to believe it's the end of this swap! She totally spoiled me! All she sent is so me! I love everything!

First we have some awesome owl items! A tile pendant and a tile bracelet, a super cute owl brooch and an owl pendant and chain.


Then, there's a t-shirt scarf in just the perfect color! I love purple!


There's a super cute ruffled pad! It'll be really useful and I love the fabric!


And some Hello Kitty goodies! I love Hello Kitty! She decorated the bag, isn't it awesome?


Thank you so much Helena Puck! I really love everything! This has been such a fantastic swap!  Grin

Everyone, prepare to be amazed. Here is what Lunanne sent me for package #3.

First, here are the extras she sent for the boys ran off with their goodies. I had to take the picture quickly.  


The extras include: three sheets of compressed sponge to cut into shapes, pencil pouches full of character candy and character pens, a paper suitcase traveling sewing kit, animal and robot stickers, smurfy stickers, superhero wrapping paper, toy story and spiderman notepads and wall decals, bear molds, band-aids, baby smurf charm, and the pocketsize bear embroidery/cross stitch book.

Here is a page from the little teddy bear book full of wonderful embroidery and cross stitch patterns:


more smurfy extras and the toy hammock



Here is another picture of the toy hammock because it's amazing. I've been really wanting one for the boys room. It's made with acrylic yarn and it's a perfect triangular shape. I'll have pictures later when I hang it in the boys room.


And, last but not least, an amazing purse made of thick brown corduroy, lined with a nice green material, adorned with a button tree. I had tons of button art pinned in pinterest. I'm so happy she decided to make the tree on the bag. It's perfect for me, matches everything I own, including the couch. Sorry about the picture.


Here is a close up of the tree.


Thanks again Lunanne! I love everything!

My super awesome package arrived from Megzy818!

It's totally spectacular and I love it! Check it out:


It's that awesome?!? My husband's going to flip when he gets home and sees it.  Cheesy
I mean, that's seriously a lot of Star Wars characters. I can't even imagine the time it took.

Thank you!!!!

Wow! that SW Cross stitch is amazing! I sure hope Megzy makes a dedicated post just for that. Sweet! That would be Great for my G for Christmas, right along with the Lego Super Star Destroyer he's getting.

I got my thrid box from RubyLynnS.
First I got some pink hair. A strand for fun and some dye for if I grow a pair. Maybe I want to be like Ruby, maybe I don't? I don't know, would pink be OK with my natural red?

And my large is the alphabet!

Yay! She also sent a HobLob gift card for a frame because she didn't trust the PO to not f*ck up the glass if she framed it. I may just hoop it and put it in the girls' room, though. I don't know yet. I may have to ask my G about it.

Hey, now that the MaF is over, is everyone going to rush over the OPS?  *WinkWink, nudge, nudge*

I love what everyone's received so far.

Well, I received from OrangeKnickers and I was SPOILED! I can't believe it!

I have a love, nay a slight obsession, with the Princess Bride. She took that and the fact that I'm kind of a bag nut and made me this:

A Princess Bride themed Teesha Moore style bag!!! Shocked

and the back:


Each little patch is perfect! She captured so many of my favorite bits of the movie so well. I am in awe. Here are thumbnail links to close ups of the different parts of the bag.

The Westley/Buttercup Silhouette, Inigo's famous words, Inconceivable!, and Fezzik's famous "anybody want a peanut?"

"I survived the fire swamp"

Have fun stormin' the castle and perhaps one of my favorite silhouettes from the movie - Vizzini, Inigo and Fezzik

The six fingered man's glove and Fezzik's pants!!!

Brute Squad Fezzik and perhaps one of my favorite patches on the whole thing - "Plato, Aristotle, Socrates ... Morons!" also "I'm not a witch, I'm your wife!" And a Pirate patch.

"My Brain, Your Strength, His Steel" ("against sixty men, and you think a little head-jiggle is supposed to make me happy? hhhmmmmm?" love it!) An ROUS patch and the bottom right is a little hard to see but it says "TWU WUV"

The Dread Pirate Roberts patch

"As You Wish" in beads and the pirates/morons patches again

Sorry so picture heavy but Orange Knickers did such an amazing job I thought you'd like to see it up close.  Cheesy

OrangeKnickers -  Grin THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Grin

I'm so glad that it made it to you safe and sound (I've never been so paranoid that the postal service would lose a package in my life!) and that you love it.   Grin  I was so nervous making it because I've never done anything like that before, but I really wanted to try.  I am so proud of how everything came out and I knew as I was making it that you would love it.  I'm also really glad that you recognized Fezzik's stripey pants and red(ish) boots without explanation.  You are made of awesome, and have been such a wonderful partner.   Cheesy

It's amazing! Fezzik's pants/boots are one of my favorite things on there. He's my favorite character. Cheesy
