All of these boxes look amazing. I am leather and laces mom and just joined Craftster. I can't wait until Aisy gets her package to see if she likes it. I have been enjoying the swaps vicariously through my daughter and now can't wait to do some of my own. Hopefully by the next round I will be eligilble to join in. Cheesy

Hi Mom. You're such a weirdo Grin

Listessa, how can I convince you to send me all of those jerkies? Is that the correct plural of jerky. . . ?

I received an awesome package from bambam91!!


Unfortunately, the terrarium broke in transit. Sad



but check out all of this awesome stuff!!! (not picture is the chutney she sent because it leaked in transit, but was still salvageable!)
Drinking chocolate, Vege chips (already eaten lol), juice boxes, chocolates, yarn, cute little alligator keychain, cereal, tons of tea, nut bars, biscuits, coffee & chickory essence, chai, and some really cool postcards.

but my favorite thing of all....

VEGEMITE!!! AND CHEESYBITE!!!  I've had this stuff many times before, and I just LOVE it!!! 

I really like how bambam91 took extra care to make sure everything in the box was something I could eat.  I'm a vegetarian with an egg and gluten sensitivity, so I know it had to be a bit of a challenge to find stuff for me.  This package was amazing.  Thanks a TON!! Smiley

I enjoyed putting it together Smiley

Hi Mom. You're such a weirdo Grin

Listessa, how can I convince you to send me all of those jerkies? Is that the correct plural of jerky. . . ?

That's so cool!  Family Craftster-ing!  Cheesy  Hi Leather and Lace's Mom!

I don't know if that is the right plural, or if jerky is like moose?  Wink

Drop me a PM - I'll look around and see what they have around town.  I got a couple in Anchorage when I went down for Iditarod and Fur Rondy, but I think they might have them here and there!  



AHH!  I had to edit in half of my post because I caught teh dumb and forgot...

I LOVE that box of goodies, gingerpeachy!  It looks excellent.  Pretty yarn, and yummy looking goodies.  Smiley  The terrarium looked really cute, I saw that post in Misc.  Post office went nuts to break it!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I received from GingerPeachy.

Customs opened nearly everything in the box andleft a note to say it was opened and inspected by them.

I had to fight my partner away to take photos. I do not know how much will be left for when I get home.



My partner knew it was food and had to open it. He was trying to avoid being in the picture.



Close up of the box.



This is what was in it minus a lollipop or 2 that my partner kept taking when trying to take the picture



My crafted item! I spueed when I saw this. I love owls and was talking about starting a hoop wall. This is first addition. I am buying a hook for it on the weekend.

This is my hoop with my other owls

I swear Gingerpeachy rocked at stalking me!



An awesome postcard explaining that some of the treats are from Mexico and biscuits are German and Gingerpeachy is German.

Sadly the biscuits where crumbs. Lucky Customs did not try to open them.



An awesome paperbag that I can reuse!!

I have some other photos but for some reason Crafster won't let me upload any more. I will try again later.

Thank you Gingerpeachy for being a great partner and thank you MissSadieMae for organising it!

Sorry the biscuits were crumbs by the time they got there.  You could put them on ice cream or something.  Smiley  Glad you liked everything!  I know the owl hoop doesn't exactly represent the region I'm from (we do have owls here though!) but I figured you would like it.  The owl is my own drawing. Smiley

you said you liked lollies, so I made sure to put a ton in there.  Cheesy

Here I am with pictures of the wonderful swap package that I received from Rachel / The Raging Sloth! Sorry it took so long, Easter was crazy :-s

Here's the whole lot of goodness <3 Notice the abundance of health-freak items, such as raw or organic bars, sugar free, spirulina, aarrhh! And, notice the multiple items combining peanuts/peanut butter/pretzels/chocolate. Heaven. And Caramel Eggs!! I had heard so much about these, but never tasted them LOL.



Here's a detail of the snacks and cool stuff from Minnesota, I thought the packaging and names were so funny Cheesy Thanks for finding these rarities for us!! The strawberry-rhubarb jam (favorite flavor!! you're a hero!!) is so cute in its tiny jar/pitcher Smiley



And here you can see the gorgeous hoopla that she made for me! There's even a dedication in the back of it, so so cool. Thanks!! It's now sitting on one of my bookshelves next to Amineko, must take a pic of that as well...



And... this is the first snack that I tasted. BTW, they're mostly gone by now, I've been generous and shared the goodies with my boyfriend Wink This bar is SO DELICIOUS. OMG I need to get more! Unfortunately they don't sell them over here ^_^



Thanks again Rachel!! We loved everything <3

Yay! I am so glad you liked everything, Mata! I had a lot of fun looking for stuff and I'm glad everything got there in tact. I was a little afraid for the jam. Mmmm jam. I thought the jalepeno bark was just funny and needed to be added.
