Lexbean received her package and I'm able to post the picture.

As a classical violinist I thought she might enjoy the large vase with Rennaisance Paintings of Violinist (okay Lutes, but close enough)  I also created these four tiny bud vases (also ORANGE) with details of violin parts.  Do you get the feeling her fav color is orange???

Lexbean also admitted to having a large sticker collection and I provided her a Orange Binder to decorate with her favorite stickers.  Also some word puzzles (because she has said she is obsessed).

Finally as a Teacher I'm sure she could appreciate a few more office supplies and a nifty COMPUTER FLOPPY DISK pencil holder (five 3.5 disks glued together with edging detail from computer parallel printer cables.)

Also some quick bookmarks in woven computer wire and images to match her vases.

Finally Keyboard magnets spelling out her name. (WOOT! for keyboard key art)

Apologies for small photo of everything globbed together-- mental note to self to take multiple photos of things.

And happily everything arrived in one piece--- I really loaded up on the bubble wrap.... yeah bubble wrap

Glad you liked it Lexbean and I hope everyone else enjoyed looking at what I've done to blend my geeky style (computers) with Lexbean's geeky style (music)

Happy Crafting

I LOVE MY STUFF!!!

As I mentioned to Coyotelady, my husband has just about claimed that frog as his own (he can't have it, it's mine!), and the little dress and baby clothes are ADORABLE.  The WASD pin is hilarious, and the iron-on transfers are fantastic!!!

You have no idea how thrilled I am to be able to put Phunbaba (see my icon) on any item of clothing I want.  Now, I just have to decide... Undecided

Everything was so great, and I'm a tiny bit nervous about the stuff I sent - I didn't send nearly as many items as everyone else did, but I hope she likes them anyway.  This was an AWESOME first swap, and I'm REALLY EXCITED!!

Thank you, thank you Shotgun_Bettie.  You are the best!  Oh, and as soon as I get home and grab my receipt I'll send you that DC number.  Sorry I forgot to send it to you yesterday when I shipped.  I've been something of a basketcase these days.

It would be great to have another geek pride swap.  I think some people didn't join because it was close to the holidays.  Maybe after December we can set up another swap?

Another round would be great!

That frog was the cutest thing ever! And i too covet the disk container idea as my brother has lots of computer parts hanging around that i could recycle (and declutter at the same time). Wink

I couldn't quite see the computer wire bookmarks though... I wonder how they work... sounds interesting.

I am totally swap addicted now!  Grin  I await my package eagerly jan_on_ice! (and a little impatiently  Wink can't wait, can't wait!)

I know! Even though I love summer, I wish it was a bit cooler so I could wear it! Hmmmm.... maybe it will cool down a little tonight *fingers crossed*

That cardigan is a beauty and let me tell you, if it had been in my size.... well... lets just say your swap package would have been a little smaller! Wink
