Drum roll please.........................This is what the fabulous gingerquilts sent to me ( and it's in shades of pink & green - my fave!!!!!)

The 'after' cosmo kit in a darling bag: aspirin, eye mask, water bottle (in rehydration we trust), rolaids and toys to keep bambino busy while mom recovers.

An apron (YES!! I love aprons!!!), tea towels, cosmo lip gloss, a small purse, a cute necklace and a cosmo lamp to put Ralphie's Dad's Leg Lamp to SHAME!


The cutest quilted sign to hang on the door knob:

Everything had these great little explaination tags attached

Details from the purse and necklace

And my fabulous cosmolicious lamp!!
 
She also included with the lamp "Instructions for dummies" in which she was kind enough to clarify the butchered English used in the instructions. (black type=actual wording, blue=ginga's clarifying remarks):
1. Do not connect yor lamp to AC mains whilst assembling. Thou shalst be ok, 'tis already assembled
7. The attachment included stirrer olny. WTF?
8. Do not run with scissors. Oh, and wear clean undies in case you're in an accident.
1a. Do not drink beverages from lamp whilst plugged in
2a. Drink one before one too many to enjoyeth lamp's beauty fully
I am totally spoiled and will never need another cosmo item ever (except maybe vodka....)
Thank you so very much ginga! I am totally amazed at your craftiness and generosity! I have had the gooniest smile plastered on my face ever since opening it..... Grin Grin Grin Grin

*does a little dance*

I'm so glad you like it!  I  saw there are still lamps left at my JoAnn's in the clearance aisle.  I added a little to yours.  I am thinking I may need one of my own at my house.  They had a lemon colored one, too.

gingerquilts, your stuff is phenominal. stifflersmom is one lucky swapper.

I may have to get you to pick me up one of those lamps for the Lava Lounge. In pink? I'd like it modified just like the one pictured.

Stifflersmom, you are so lucky!  What a great stash of cosmo-licious goodies!  Where in the world did you find cosmo flavored lipgloss?!?!?!?!  That lamp blows Ralphie's dad's leg lamp to bits!  I love the instructions -how funny.   Cheesy

Everyone has such cool stuff, I can't wait until my package arrives.

I am SOOOOO lucky! Ginga is a fantastic partner!
The lip gloss tastes like cranberry, Yay!

I found some Chocolate Martini lip gloss AFTER I sent to gingerquilts, at a dollar store.
I bought it anyway in case there is a round 2. Hee!

Pah, I had to much on to join this swap, and I'm soooo sad now looking at all the fabulous things you've all made! There are far too many things I envy in this gallery! I do hope there's a round two! Smiley

Aww, thanks everyone!  I started gathering cosmo type goodies in my travels ever since Racky and Stifflersmom started talking about this swap.  Some of which is lost in my sewing room Embarrassed.  The lipgloss was at K-Mart of all places.  I usually hate KMart and refuse to go there in general but my son had to ring Salvation army bells there one night for his basketball team for 4 hours. 

Rackycoo, you will get that lamp when I get the beautified little book.  Either that or you hop on a plane and I will present it to you at the airport. It can begin a lovely cosmo party!!
