The yellow candy is called Millions. Soft and chewy tiny sweets.

That looks tasty.  I wasn't surprised to see that you're in England.  I always seem to want candy that I can't get my hands on.  Starburst Babies are my favorite sweet in the entire world  (chemically laden little children that you eat, but oh so delicious and chewy) and they are only available in Australia. 

I hope the images only button works for this swap.  In the OWS 100, you only get the first two pages of the gallery when you use that feature.  It usually works fine so I don't know why it's wonky for that particular gallery.

Our gallery is off to a great start! 

I love the silky pouch in that first package and the arm warmers look so comfy cozy. 

How clever to use pop tabs (being southern, I would call those Coke tabs regardless of what drink they came off of  Cheesy) to make a cute little coin purse.  The quilling is very pretty and I'm very intrigued by the basket.  You wove that yourself?  What exactly is it made of?


I used newspapers and a piece of cereal box. This is the link to the tut.It is in spanish but the video is really easy to follow

Thanks so much!  I definitely want to give that a try.  I love your basket and it's even better knowing it's made from recyclables!

Thank you.  Be warned though..... it is addictive and you will end up making them in all shapes and sizes.

So I received from happylittleclam today Smiley I got a wonderful package Smiley

Wonderful motivational daffodil picture


I love this SO much - but it is posing a quandry. While I was growing up I always bought mum her first bunch of daffodils of the year - it became a tradition. Since I've grown up and live about 4 hours drive from her - I haven't done. Then - this year I found a site online where I could send them through the post so sent her the first bunch again. It is very much a 'love you mum' thing. Therefore - this picture would be perfect for her (and we happen to be going up tomorrow!) BUT - I LOVE it! To keep or not to keep - that is the question!!!

I also got this painting - I fell in love with this quote when I saw it on somebodies pinterest - it just sums up how  I am trying to live my life now after years of being badly depressed. I cried when I saw this -I cant explain how much it means!



what is it painted onto - it's a fascinating texture!!!

Then I got some jewellery - a lovely necklace:



and these WONDERFUL earrings - These are so me! I nearly didnt photograph them as I put them in as soon as I got them - and only realised when I was uploading pics that they were missing - they are fox tails!



Some knitted washclothes - I only recently got my first home made washcloths - and I love them - I will only use / buy handmade from now on - so really glad to add these two to my collection Smiley



Last of the crafted things are these awesome little envelopes - they are SO cute!!!

They are only a couple of inches long by about 1 high - LOVE!!! Will be using them for swap notes I think!



Then onto the fillers - a beautiful sunflower button:


a dog coat sewing pattern - which I am going to use to make coats for my two dogs:



some very tasty and also healthy (wow such a thing DOES exist!) Fruit stick thingies!



I'm feeling what you mean about great food not being sold in your own country Sad

Lastly two lovely fat quarters!


thanks again happylittleclam - I really love everything you sent Smiley

For Mom's picture. Take it to a quality copy shop which has a color copy machine. Have them make an image of it.
It is not that expensive to have done. They might even be able to print the copy on a canvas material. Then you both can have one  Grin you will just need to re-frame/block the copy...but that is easy to do with a staple gun, or glue. Depending on how you wish it to be. Just ideas. You got a very beautiful package of stuff. Glad to hear that you are out of the dark and into the light again. I suffer depressions, too. Kiss

What a terrific Box of Sunshine!  The daffodil painting is pretty and I love those great orange washcloths but I think that sun painting is one of the best things I've ever seen!  I spent the first 48 years of my life as one of the most annoyingly optimistic people on the planet.  Even though he's doing great after treatment, my husband's cancer came close to destroying my positive outlook.  I constantly wait for something horrible to happen now.  I love that quote so so much and had never seen it or heard it before.   It couldn't possibly have been executed any better than that.  You are one lucky swap partner!
