I love them both!  I am totally inept at sewing and have never tried knitting, so it was nice getting some things I couldn't make myself.  The knitted purse has the cutest flowery retro-looking lining too. Thanks again brena80!!

Yay, yay, YAY! I have received my package from The Littlest Ninja. Thanks SO much, Stephanie!! I love everything! I'm at work now, but I'll take pictures and post later.

It's hard to pick a favorite item, but that recipe box is great -- just what I needed! Perfect in the crazy tomato kitchen (I'll have to post an "action shot" at some point...)

Thanks again -- this was so much fun!

*Edit*
Okay... I can't resist. Takin' a break from work to take and post my photos! (Sorry the quality isn't so great -- if you've got better ones, Stephanie, you can post 'em)

I got this awesome tomato recipe card holder and fantastic tomato marble magnets (yes, I love tomatoes -- I have an entirely tomato-themed kitchen!):



And I got this terrific Paris-themed (I like a theme!) earring holder with extra goodies!! The extra goodies are some extra Paris craftiness (including an awesome Eiffel Tower charm!), a great little animal-print notebook (growr!), and... forgive me, Stephanie -- what is the final item of craftiness? It's long and fabric and silky and animally... I've got it tied around my head right now in the cutest headband/bow, but if I'm supposed to be doing something else with it, please let me know!



Again, thanks so much for my stuff! This was super fun.

Now I hope my swappee likes her stuff...

Heehee, I'm so glad you like everything, kaesea!  I'm also glad the earring holder appears to have made it through the mail unscathed.  I packaged the heck out of it so it would survive.  And yes, the long, fabric, silky, animal thingie does indeed go around your head   Grin  BUT, if you think of a better use, that's okay too, i kinda make those so they can go anywhere (head, neck, wrist, purse, etc.)

I keep meaning to post here.  I got my package from Spicey Creations and it was awesome!

She sent me: a hat pin
a very pretty necklace
wedding wine charms
and an awesome red goddess book mark

I am having my vows renewed and having a huge party in 3 days and can barely remember to wash my hair in the shower.  So Spicey if you have pics feel free to post them, or just wait.  Because I will get around to it.

I am the luckiest gal!  I got the coolest jewelry from dsgnbyrj and I LOVE it!
Two bracelets that look like yummy rock candy only they're not...one in blues and one in reds.  And awesome "cherry blossom" earrings which I'm wearing right now at work Smiley
I'm camera-less at the moment since it's been lent out to a friend but I promise to post pictures really soon!  (unless you took some and post em before I do)
Thank you thank you thank you - it's all awesome!  Smiley Smiley Smiley

Me again with more photos!  Wee!

I received the most AWESOME box of goodies from kaesea today - she totally spoiled me!  Cheesy

I received a fabulous western inspired purse - it's got a denim feel on the outside and a red bandana feel on the inside, with a sassy little bandana tied on the strap:



AND THEN! She made me a whole assortment of buttons and magents!  They were all inside this super cute decorated box (I love trinket boxes) and are grouped together on little labeled cards - OMG!  There's a Chrsitmas set (because I LOVE Christmas), a "me" set with fabulous images like a Canadian flag and an "I heart Muskoka" pin - and where did you dig up that I love goldfish? *lol*  And a set of decorative pins (I love them all!)  AND THAT's NOT ALL!!!  She also included a decorated altoid tin (my first and now I "get" why these are so popular!) containing a set of girly magnets for my magnet board - one of which is my avatar!



I did take a few pin close-ups but my camera and I were just not on the same wavelength tonight.

I do have to say though, that as much as I love all the crafty goods my favorite item was the lovely letter she included telling me why she made the things she did - it was so sweet!  

THANK YOU SO MUCH KAESEA!!!! Smiley

Whew! I'm so glad you liked everything! This is my first swap, so I was totally nervous. And since you're in Canada, the wait for you to get your stuff has felt *endless* (even though it was only a week).

The goldfish tidbit was on your blog -- you were tagged and answered questions about your favorite stuff. Ha ha! I really *am* Sherlock Holmes!! Yay!!

Oh good!  Thanks for posting those! 
I'm wearing my blue bracelet today!  Yum!
AND you're so awesome because I didn't know my wrist size and they both fit perfectly.  You rock.

Brena I'm worried about yours!  Is it close to delivery?  (nail biting)

Oh, post office, why must you cause me so much grief...

But I got it!   Hooray!   And it's lovely!   Thank you BurghGirl!

Here's the pic:



I got a really cute picture frame in my favorite colors, purple and pink.   A super cute Hello Kitty keychain and a Wonder Woman votive holder!   Hooray!

Ok, I'm finally getting around to posting pics of the items I sent to Spicey.  She has been out of town and asked me to post them.  I made her a mini scrapbook/photo album with her favorite color combo, purple and black.  Plus a couple of cards and some buttons.  My pictures aren't very good, but the far left button is an "L" (her first intial) and one next to it is a sleeping cat inspired by a picture of her cat on her blog.





Spicey, I hope you like everything!

I haven't been planning a round 2.   I have to stop swapping for awhile while I prepare for Christmas.   Anyone who wants to start a second round has my blessing!

OK, I got the greatest picture frame in the world from brashbroad!  It's definately going to hold a picture of me and the boyfriend panicking!!



It's a little blurry, but it says "Don't Panic" and has the HHG2G guy in the top right corner.  And inside the frame are super cute tags (shrinky dink?) that have my kitties' names on them.  I was going to put them on their collars...but I might make myself something with them instead!   Grin  I also got some great pink stationery and some strange twirly butterfly things that you wind up, put in cards, and when you open the card, they fly out!

Ooooh this was the best swap ever! I've never done one - I hope someone starts it up again after the holidays, I totally want to do it. (And I have a whole month off from school to craft! Think of all I can do just working a f/t job and no classes!!)  Kiss
