Well, actually I haven't stalked you at all. We have swapped before, remember? I'll give you a hint the first thing I did was cut your signature off the note and slide it under the glass of the painting you sent me a while back. Grin Funny thing is I still don't know your name. Anyway, I'm so glad you liked everything, I had a lot of swap anxiety this time Huh btw, I tried to match the scarf to the purse but it was pretty tough. Smiley

I have recieved also a fabulous package. A captains type hat with a little pouch to stash smokes in, a lightercase which I will hook on my belt loop and when people ask me for a light the strap is long enough to lend it but they can't steal it (ingenious),Two ashtrays with 'candle smokes' a cd, some fabric pieces that I will make into something and a great framed advertvertizement (my favorite) of... well let's just say it's interesting. It's on my desk and everytime I look at it I just laugh. Thanx again this has been a great swap if you have photos please post. d Grin

Yours are by far the nicest compliments I've gotten on my crafts, Thank-you Smiley

Oh yes, I remember. I don't remember telling you that such scarves are one of my favorite accesories, though. I thought of it whenever I saw your address! well I'm glad you've got a signature now! I can be forgetful in that department.
I'm so glad we got to do a second swap together! It was wonderful! It was the highlight of my day. Especially since it had been going rather poorly. I got clocked in the back of the head with a plexiglass sign front when the wind blew it down. I'm still sore!

We wear the mask that grins and lies
It hides our face and shades our eyes
Ah, but let the world dream otherwise
We wear the mask

Everything is so adorable.  I wouldnt think there would be much stuff you could really make based on smoking! I love it!

OK, so Yirq, you went so indcredibly overboard on your package.  Plus, the bonus from Laural.  I am waiting for my camera batteries to recharge to post the pics, but I'll post a list for now.  It was a crazy awesome surprise!
1.  Crocheted cig pouch with beaded strap (with Camel Lights included)
2.  Crocheted drawstring pouch (with Camel Lights included)
3.  A small black purse (with cigarettes included) -- I think you have post-stalked me. Grin
4.  A sweet cigarette holder (like from the 20's)
5.  Cognac dipped cigarillos to use with the holder
6.  2 pouches of flavored coffee
7.  Breath mints
8.  Coffee flavored chocolates
9.  A Camel ashtray
10.A beaded lighter cover
11.A mini handheld fan (for "sharing" cig smoke with others Wink)
12.Caffinated coffee flavored cookies
Now for the kicker...
13.  Handmade ashtray
14.  Coffee cup
15. Matching coffee cup and saucer
All of these are pottery made by Yirq, which is spectacular!

AND!!!!  Her friend Laural knited me a totally cute cigarette butt pillow.

You will all be amazed when these pics are posted.  (And you will be able to see anything that I forgot to mention)  Incredible.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, YIRQ!!!

I made the shirt.  I just thought up the slogan, since all anti-smoking stuff cites all these crazy statistics.  I'm glad everyone likes it!  I was worried about that.

Just FYI (a little pre-etsy store plug, if you will), I may put some in my etsy shop when I get it up and running  Wink

I can't wait until monoped and morbid_lady get their stuff (HURRY CANADA AND AUSTRALIA POSTS), so we can close this out as a totally flake-free swap!!!
