I woke up this morning to see a fancy little e-mail in my inbox informing me that I had a package waiting at the campus post office!  Not only did I find a package from the Sweat Shop Swap, I got my box from r0ckwithme!  Yay!

The loot!  I was sent lots o' stuff, including yarn (which my knitting roommate totally claimed), little toys to make jewelry out of, candles (which I unfortunately can't use in my dorm...   Cry ), adorable fabric, a "fashion doll" to cut apart and make jewelry out of, glass rock thingies, beads, and bunches more.

My favs:

An adorable buttoned pouch with a paper-ish bird sewn to the front.  Super cute!

Absolutely awesome robot fabric

A little blue scuba diver, who is soooo getting Dremel'ed and made into a necklace

And the absolutely best part...

Little plastic muscle men!  I took them out of the zippered pouch they came in and two were, well...  let's just say... intertwined in a rather unfortunate way.  My roomie thinks I should drill them and make a little, erm...  boy love bracelet.  Wink

Thanks a bunch, r0ckwithme!  I'll take muscle men off your hands any day!

Here are three sample button bracelets and detail of their clasp.  These are not the exact bracelets I am offering, just a representation of what the final ones will look like.  I have a HUGE variety of colors to use and will make a variety of combinations.

So, I walked over to our handy-dandy campus post office today actually SHAKING because I was so excited to get my package from trampycouture!  I opened up the cutest little penguin envelope (which I sadly forgot to get pictures  of...) to find the most adorable package ever!  Everything follows a super awesome retro baking theme, which is so perfect for me!  I absolutely adore anything 50's housewife-y and kitschy!

First, the ornaments!  

A donut, strawberry, gingerbread heart and "pie"!  You perfectly captured my geeky, physics major humor with this one...   Grin

My baby Christmas tree trying very hard to model them all...

Don't worry, ornaments!  You'll be on a full sized tree when I go home for break this weekend!   Cheesy

I went to the Renegade Christmas Craft Fair in Chicago this weekend, and I was inspired to make resin and sprinkle jewelry, but my partner beat me to it!  She sent me three lovely magnets and a pair of earrings!

They've already found a home on my mini dorm fridge...

And, the icing on the cake, a fancy pants embroidered apron!  If only I had this when my roommate and I baked a few dozen candy cane cookies Saturday night...

Detail of the top design:

Redheaded housewife for the win!

Apron and me questioning why there's still a pumpkin decorating our lounge...

I absolutely adore everything my lovely partner sent me and I think this was probably the best first swap a girl could ask for!

I can't wait to see everyone else's packages...
