I can't wait to find out.  Smiley

AAAH!  I got mine today!  Mandy is a genius... a crafty, crafty genius!

I got:  A rad lined pouch to put my dirty pads in when I'm on the go... it's so pretty, I might just have to add a strap and use it as a purse instead! (pic has lining detail and cute button)

Some "chub rub" balm that smells heavenly and I opened right away to put on my lips... also comes in massage bar form.  Note the hot babe on the label!
     
AND, I got "women's blend" tea (I just brewed a cup, it smells rather weird, but is supposed to do marvelous things...), a "keypad" cloth pad, chocolate (lindt 90% INCREDIBLY dark!!! Yes!!!), and a button that says "don't bug me, I'm on the rag"
All show in the below photo
 

Okay, andthe funniest, coolest part is that it came in the mail in this neat purple bag that I opened and turned inside out... turns out, it's a bag from Vancouverdungeon's CONFERENCE OF KINK!  heh!  so now, I've got to get some sort of kinky item to put inside... or maybe I should put in some white cotton panties or something ironic.

Anyways, THANK YOU MANDY FOR BEING SUCH A QUICK AND COOL SWAPPER!  And thank's djungleorms friend for organizing!

Hooray!
I'm glad everything arrived safely.  Also glad you liked the stuff.  Much of it is recycled/revamped/reused, as i hate to waste things.  The fabric for the pouch is from a vintage sheet, the button is a bead from an old bracelet, and the envelope was from the conference I attended/helped to organize last year, and it was too cool to throw out.  I figured it would make a good (also leak proof, should the chocolate or massage bar melt) envelope. 

The button is one i got at a thrift store or garage sale or something years ago.  I thought i'd pass it on.  The chub rub and bars (great for massaging crampy lower backs) i've been making for a couple years, with some variations.  My roomate calls it "magic grease."

The chocolate is some of my favorite.  Good quality and dark, mmmmmm.

The tea was recommended to me by a nice little old chinese lady in the store where i was looking at tea the other day.  It smelled a little odd, but I figured it was worth a try. 

Oh, and the "keypad" is a slightly improved version of the one i sent in the last swap.

glad you liked it all.

here's a couple more pics of the pouch.  the colour is a bit off due to the red wall in the back ground. it's more of a yellow-green  in real life. 
It's a modification of the jordy bag.
