I received today from MoniqueRamsey!

Everything straight out of the package


All the goodies & MYB ready to be unwrapped


All unwrapped & done!


I ended up with an adorable little owl tote, four total balls of yarn, two sets of stitch markers, two row counters, needles, the cutest little owl amigurumi, candy, and a perfect pair of owl earrings!

Thank you, Monique! I love everything!

My package from Jexxican is AMAZING.  Seriously, I am in awe of her yarn ball skills.  

She sent such great items!  The yarn and pattern are straight from my pinterest, she sent me "My Vampire Boyfriend" and a gorgeous blood red yarn that is super yummy for socks.  

She sent me a skein of handspun yarn which is to die for.  It is bulky weight and absolutely scrumptious. I have great plans for it.  Smiley

She sent me a soft yarn bowl that has a hole I can run the yarn through or use a just a bowl.  I think I am going to use it to hold my buttons.  She sent me lots of really cool buttons and beads.  She even sent me things like two little sharpies which are perfect for my first week back to school.  She also sent a tea wallet with some yummy tea. I am a huge tea drinker at home and at work so that will be used alot.

For my daughter, she sent a GORGEOUS brightly neon colored sock monkey. My daughter grabbed it right away and loved it.  She sent her tons of glitter and other girly girl stuff which is currently in the bowl that Jexxican sent me.... I think my daughter is trying to keep my bowl too. LOL

Here are the pictures!

I would love to do a personal swap!  I can sew, knit, and crochet.  I have a 9 year old who loves to do swaps as well so we can do a mommy/daughter swap package. Smiley

I am so disappointed in myself. Usually I unwrap my ball while crocheting out the patter that came with it but I have so much going this time I just wound it onto my my niddy noddy. Oh well. Here is what I received from bebedechocolates!

Coloring books and markers for the kids, 3 different sock patterns.

Bought items:

Cross stitch kit, card games for the kids, silly putty, and socks that match the yellow/black self striping yarn. I am really torn about these socks, you guys. I've been selling monkeys at the market and these socks are begging to be made into a monkey, but then again they are begging to be worn. I don't know what to do!
And oh, yeah, I LOVE THIS YARN! SW Merino/nylon self striping BUMBLEBEES!

And the handmade stuff:

Stitch markers, marker rolls, and a lovely bag. I love it! It all smells like it came from Spidermom's house, actually. They must use the same detergent or something. The bag has little lovely pockets inside, too. Very well made!

I don't know what was so funny, but you should know by now to not be drinking when reading things I type.

You're right, bebede, this was a fun swap. Hurray for MYBs!
