So brace yourself!!!  Here are the pictures of the amazing package that babalina58 put together for me!!

Teacher stuff!!  So I'm an elementary education major about to embark on student teaching this coming September.  So, my partner made me an adorable tissue box cover made with "teacher/school" fabric that looks like a coach.  She also decorated a little chalkboard, made a photo book to hold pics of my first students, and included a desk set that has a stapler, tape dispenser, and other essential desk stuff.

I really like the fleur-de-lis, so my partner made me a little trinket box with the symbol.  Once I opened the box,  I was so excited to see that there were Hello Kitty magnets, a pin, and a necklace.

So I obviously LOVE Hello Kitty!!!  Here is a decorated mirror and thermos.

Decorated school supply box:

All the goodies that were inside the box:

Hello Kitty cookbook and some decorative spoons!  I'm getting my first apartment soon, so my kitchen will most definitely rock!

A few of my favorite pages:

Hello Kitty canisters!!!

Hello Kitty Altered Altoid Tin!!  I have seen these tins in the galleries for all the altoid tin swaps and I think they're so cool!  I'm so glad that I have one.  Mine is a little first-aid kit.

Last but not least, some delicious taffy from North Carolina!  (The box was opened shortly after this picture was taken  Grin)

Thank you so so much babalina!!!!  You are so awesome!!!!!

Here are pictures of the lovely items that I received from trampycouture!!

Group shot: a flamingo (my fav animal!) tote bag with a fun trim, embroidered pouch for office supplies, and some extra goodies (stickers, post-it notes, and pens).  I'm going to be a teacher so I thrive on that kind of stuff, LOL.

Front and back of the pouch:

trampycouture, you're a super talented embroiderer!!  I hope that's a word...

Thank you so much for everything!!!!

Here are the awesome goodies that I received from SAHMama.  She definitely spoiled me!!!!

We now embark on my tropical vacation...

First, the festively decorated box

Then out came a really cute tote stuffed to the brim with goodies

The tote bag is reversible!

Another bag! It's made out of a towel.  They're great for the beach and also for wet stuff,

A camera cozy (my cell phone is modeling it because I needed the camera to take the picture)

A sarong (my bathing suit is all black, so this will look really cute with it)

A recipe book (sorry it's blurry, I'm not sure why it came out like that).  This little book is stuffed with tropical recipes for drinks, foods, and desserts.

Group shot:  In this one there is also embellished flip flops, pink striped beach towel, drink umbrellas, mini brag book, scrapbooking embellishments, flowered journal, and a book entitled "Swim Naked, Defy Gravity and 99 Other Essential Things to Accomplish Before Turning 30"

Thanks so much SAHMama!!!!  Everything is so wonderful  Cheesy

Details of Swap:
Who doesn't love to talk about themselves?  For this swap, you will come up with approximately 100 facts about yourself.  You can include tidbits like favorite colors, themes, patterns, or completely random stuff.  Coming up with 100 facts may seem rather daunting, however once you start, it becomes surprisingly easy  Smiley!  Your partner will then craft for you based on the 100 facts.  You may also want to include a short little note or letter explaining the items.  This swap also has a nice and long crafting time  Smiley.

Discussion thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302558.0

This is a 5 point swap:
3 pts = large
2 pts = medium
1 pt =  small

**Your package can include any number or size of items as long as they add up to at least 5 points**
(Spoiling is perfectly acceptable, as long as it is agreed upon by both partners  Wink)

And here are the Craftster guidelines for item sizes:
LARGE:  3 or more hours, $30 or more (a shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse)
MEDIUM  = 2 to 3 hours, $10-$30 (a scarf, a simple bag)
SMALL  = less than 2 hours, less than $10 (earrings, a wallet)

Please remember this is a general guideline only, and you must use your own judgment on this. If it takes you three hours to make a simple paper bookmark, you're not going to want to count that as a large item!

Other Swap Info:

**Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for all US packages.  International Swappers must retain copies of their shipping receipts.
**Feedback will be given once your partner receives and posts pictures.  (Remember to take pictures before you send just in case your partner is unable to take pictures.)
**Please post in the thread at least once a week.  Even if you can only muster "Still here!"  This will let me know you're alive and still kicking.
**One week before the sendout date, I will be PM everyone to make sure everything is going smoothly.  If you will be sending late, please make both myself and your partner aware.

Here are some pictures of the apron that I sent to my partner, juniorpink.

it made a simple lined half apron using a tutorial from tipnut.  my partner is really into trims, so I added some rows od ric rac.

for the embroidery on the pocket, I used an iron-on embroidery pattern that I had from the Stitch-it Kit by Jenny Heart.

I also made an embroidery needle keeper with my initial on it

(kinda blurry, my apologies  Smiley)
