I'm glad you like everything! That tea box looks like it's been through the ringer! It didn't look like that when I sent it. Let me know how the coffee is. I haven't ever bought it there. I'm too cheap. I usually just buy whatever is on sale and I have a coupon for from the grocery store. If it's good, I may have to splurge.  Shocked

excellent pkg, Momof2!
You did a great job, and I'm happy to see that our recipient won't
be getting any duplicates   Grin

Those reusable tea bags are really neat!
I'm gonna have to Pin them to my wishlist  Smiley

What was smart was to put those metal washers on the end of the string on the reusuable teabags, so they stay put on the side of the cup!

I received from my wonderful partner for this swap, RaraAvis, today!  It was great timing as it was snowing hard here this morning!

I can't take or post photos, so I am going to post descriptions of the items here.  Here goes:

-A nifty turquoise scarf made out of this cool ruffled fabric

-A soft, rust colored orange cowl

-A mug that she MADE HERSELF!  It has a red inside, turquoise outside, and has 'Miss Barbara' written on it with ladybugs drawn all over it!

-A cute little painted ladybug that she also MADE HERSELF!

-A memory bracelet made up of several shades/types of blue beads, with a set of MATCHING EARRINGS!

-A nylon ladybug bag that folds in on itself

-A nice, thick, ladybug mug rug that I am going to bring to work to put my drink on

-TWO packages of drink mix!  She was able to find sugar free hot cocoa mix, as well as a container of Maxwell House International Cafe Suisse Mocha mix (sugar free AND low calorie!)

It is very obvious that you really paid attention to my wants/likes/themes for this swap and was VERY generous in what you sent!  I love it all!  THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love that grumpy cat mug!

I am so happy LadybugsAndBumblebees liked my package! Here are the pics of what I sent her....
The two scarves

Close up of the orange cowl

The mug, mug rug and a little lady bug (I went to a paint your own pottery studio to make the mug and lady bug)

Here are the drinks and jewelry, inspired by her pinterest

I also received from LadybugsAndBumblebees today!
Here is everything packaged so lovely

She sent so many great extras (tissues, cough drops, cute bird tin, reusable hot drink holder, spoon rest, and awesome Burt's Bees lotion; I love Burt's Bees products!). Prefect for the cold weather.

The tea she sent smells so good! I can't wait to try it.

Cute mug rug, crocheted on one side, with bird fabric on the other. She also beaded along the border, which looks great!

Cute fingerless gloves

Finally, a super beautiful thick warm scarf!!! I said I wanted a long scarf and she did an amazing job (it was hard to get the whole thing in the photo)

Thank you so much LadybugsAndBumblebees! The package was amazing! I love everything you sent! Grin

You both really took care of each other -- lovely!

all I can say is "holy cow!!!!"
my partner is fantastic, and she totally spoiled me!!
(in fact, she took on 2 partners, and it's my understanding that she
spoiled both of us!!!)

Sadly, my photo skillz are not the best, but here is a rundown of
the awesomeness.....

a pic of all of the goodies together:

The card she included is so pretty, with a quilled flower on it~

A lovely crocheted scarf (great for this nasty winter weather we've had the past few wks!)
a pair of matching fingerless mitts (I will prob wind up using them inside bec my hands
wind up so cold when I'm typing on the compute in the evenings!)
closeup of the mitt:

Then a colorful mug (did you make this?  it's so cheerful!)

Candy!! (did you realize I have a major sweet tooth??)
Werther's caramel coffee (never tried these, but I'm crazy about this brand)
and Coffee Crisp candy bar....sounds yummy!

Gevalia coffee (haven't bought this before, but my friend raves about it! PLUS I've needed
more coffee lately, so this arrived at just the right time Smiley

FOUR types of hot chocoloate mix

Pocket coffee espresso -- looks really interesting!  you nibble off a piece & pour the liquid
espresso in to your coffee, it appears~  mmmmm

Hazelnut coffee flavoring -- yummy

Hawaiian Hazelnut liquid coffee brewsticks -- another product that's new to me!

geekgirl, you ROCK!!!!
(if you have any other pics, feel free to share.... I'll try to gank some to show off these neat
