i do hope that this wonderful swap idea has a round 2! im from the philippines by the way. While browsing through this thread, can't help but think of the wonderful stuff that i could swap (e.g. capiz shell pendants, wood bead necklaces, shell mosaic beads, tie-dyed sarong, dried mangoes, abaca pouches, raffia slippers, coco and shell hand bags.. and the list goes on.....)

I love stuff from the Philippines!! But I suppose that's because I'm half-filipino and it brings back memories of going there when I was 6... heehee Wink

Eeee, me too!  I'm not Filipino at all, but my boyfriend is.  So I get to try out the some of the food, music and other items from there.  =)

The best things have to be the food.  Nothing beats shrimp chips, lumpia and shopow!! (sp?)   Grin

Mmmm.... lumpia..... *drools*

Anyway, I recieved an AWESOME package from princessandthebead the other day. Everything in it is perfectly me, it's incredible!

I will post pics in a couple of days, but in the meantime, here's the list of all the wonderful things I recieved:

+ Johnny Carino's Italian advertisement flyer for salads - it has pin-up girls on it!
+ 2 CD's - Big & Rich and Cross Canadian Ragweed
+ CHOCOLATE!!! 2x Nestle Crunch White, 2x Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and lots of yummy Cow Tales (almost gone!)
+ Cracker Jack (caramel-coated!) Popcorn (YUM!!!)
+ 3x Flavoured drink mixes from Mexico
+ princessandthebead's favourite Mexican candy - Coronado Obleas de Cajeta
+ Lots of pretty stickers!! Frogs, flowers, butterflies and koi
+ Brochures and postcard from Plainview with lots of pictures of those cool painted cows
+ 4 giant crochet hooks (YAY!!)
+ 3 HUGE balls of yarn (I've never seen balls that huge before!)
+ 4 Awesome envelopes that she made
+ 2 pairs of socks - one is fake denim and the other pair has cool camel/alien toes (it has a pocket for your big toe and one for the rest!)

I absolutely love everything! Thanks so much princessandthebead!

They're perfect! I'm saving that project for when I go camping at the end of the year (plus, it's summer over here, so I won't be needing a scarf for ages). Yay! Thanks again for the wonderful package!
