I am going to post a few pics of what I sent to sissychrissy1, as she is under the weather right now!  *hopes the tea is soothing*  Smiley

Here is a pic of the whole package-- the popcorn bag has a bag of coffee inside from a local coffee shop.  Also included is my favorite tea in the world (jasmine-- so fragrant!), some chocolate covered expresso beans, an embroidered tea towel, a paper bag book, and some teacup stationary.  (Please disregard all the bordering junk on my crafting table)


A closeup of the tea towel:


A few shots of the paper bag book (made from Dunkin Donuts bagel bags- tastiest book I ever made! Smiley )
The front cover:

One of the inside pages:

One of the secret pages on the inside:


Hope you are feeling better soon sissychrissy1!  Enjoy your coffee and tea!  Cheesy

Thank you yamwam!  It's my first one, so I wasn't sure how it would come out-- but it was so fun to make! 

Isn't Jasmine tea wonderful?  I tried to share some with a friend at work and she said it was too strong smelling!  I was horrified!  But oh well, more for me!  Wink

Oh, SonjaBoo, the smell is my favorite part of the tea -- which I've been drinking all day, by the way! 

Let me just say that photographs could never do that book justice, as it is the coolest and most creative thing  I have seen in ages.  And I love how the ribbon tying it up is in the Dunkin' Donuts colors!  Too perfect!

Well....I was thinking the same urvi...everybody has sent so many things!!! well, my advice is don't worry.  It doesn't mater the amount of things, if you did your Craft with the best intentions it doesn't mater if you sent  4, 6 or 20 items!!!

Apart from that you are shipping internationally!

Thank you, Knit_Core!!!!

I am overjoyed with everything you sent me. Goodies and treasures galore! I feel really lucky that my first swap was as great as it could be.

It was a hefty box! I managed to carry it back to the house with one arm full of magazines and my other arm tugged by a dog. How did I manage such a feat? I will never reveal my secret box carrying technique. Torture is futile.

So I opened the box and there's a gorgeous stencil on black canvas. My heart leapt at the thought of it being a tote. It was! I got a little emotional with happiness at how cool this whole swap business is and my eyes welled up a bit.

Inside the bag there was ALL KINDS OF STUFF!

Is there such a thing as too many pictures? I hope not.

Here is MOST everything:



I love the card!



For the life of me, I couldn't get a shot of the bag by itself without it being all blurry, so here's a close-up of the stencil:



The bag was loaded with candies inside:



They are fantastic candies. Kind of chewy and 100% delicious:



And I think these are the most fancy chocolates I have ever seen:

I live in a very rural part of central Florida - we don't have stuff like this.


Look at this sweet little treasure box! Real coffee beans and one of my favorite colors!!



This bracelet was the treasure inside. How did you poke holes in the beans? This is so cool!



There were also two mysterious lumps wrapped in fabric. I had my suspicions that they were mugs. This fabric is incredible. I will be using this in an upcoming project for sure!



I was right! I am not kidding when I say I think these are some of the prettiest mugs I've ever seen. I love the shape and they feel good in my hand.



But one mug had an attachment. It is a MUG COZY!! Oh My God - I love this cozy! It is my very favorite color and it is a soft yarn. The stitch is so elegant - some kind of open weave knitting stitch. The button is perfect. My jaw dropped when I saw this. Wow.



I'm still in awe of it all. I can't say thank you enough, but I really am grateful for all the thoughtfulness and talent you shared with me.

Now I'm going to go try one of those chocolates!!!

I love that coffee bean bracelet!  I wanted to try making one of those, but I also had no idea how to poke a hole in a coffee bean!  What a great package!
