11  Re: Jar of Whimsies 7 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by lylacfey on: March 01, 2010 09:07:11 PM
I recieved today!!!!! Smiley Everyone prepared to wist because Beeker's package is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Beeker your package touched me and made me cry. Thank you so much for the sweet and extremely thoughtful love you put into the package.

As you all know Aiki & I are hugely through when going over our swap packages so set down with a cold or hot drink because this is going to take awhile. Since Aiki looks like she's going to post after me your all going to be here awhile, lol.

I want to apologize yet again about the pictures. DH & I are saving up for a new camera because other others ones are too temperamental.

First here's the collage of all the whimsy goodness.

This is my whimsy "jar". It's a record purse!!!! Oh my gosh I about fainted when I saw it. I wanted a record purse so much. Two things I am always teased about are my huge extensive music collection and my collection of purses. I love this so much and I am going to start carrying it like right now. Smiley I love it.

DH & I spent about fifteen minutes piecing all those songs together, lol.

I have been going through a really emotional hard time lately. I cry at the drop of a bucket so when I started unwrapping my next whimsy I cried at each and every single one.

What made me a bawling mess?

My beautiful and will always be my most treasured set of Russian nesting dolls. Look at the details Beeker put into these. They are amazing.

Each is a character from Peter and the Wolf. Each has the special musical instrument on back. Beeker also included the score to Peter and the Wolf.

All of it made me cry. I study Opera and I am proud of my Russian/Nordic heritage. To receive something beautiful like this I will truly treasure all my life.

Each of the nesting dolls had whimsies inside. I did not take some of them out for pictures because they are beautiful and tiny.

Now on to my third favorite and jumping up and down whimsies. Look at all my keys. Not any ol' type of keys each are special. Look how pretty they are decorated? Thank you Beeker I truly love them.

Fourth whimsy and it's another jar. It's an owl wood gourd. Beeker has mad wood burning skills. I love it so much and I can't stop admiring it. I am scared to show it to my Mom she will steal it.

Beeker also sent in the whimsies key brads with little keyhole matching brads and they are so cute. My DH's camera is acting up so he couldn't get a good shot.

Then finally I saved the best for last. Wink It's the exploding chicken with chicken food and then after all said and done chicken poop lip gloss. I laughed so hard.

The one thing I wanted and hardly can find. I got feathers. Thank you so much! I desperately wanted these. I can now fairy craft.

You can't see to well but Beeker also filled pretty tiny bottles with seed beads and glitter. I love them so much and they are going in a special place, like on a pretty chain so I can wear them. Smiley There were on my Wists and I squealed when I saw them.

I love everything the beautiful gourmet teas, delicious journals and notecards. I absolutely adore the smiley face envelopes.

I am a huge paper crafter and Beeker sent me rubber stamps & cute die cuts.

I love all my beads and charms. They are all so beautiful. I can't stop admiring the charms.

I love all the fabric. Now, I am dying to make a small hand warmer. I just bought a jacket and it would match them perfectly.

Then there are the whimsies that made me laugh like the organizing box. If you all have been reading you know I am decluttering and organizing. I was thinking last night I needed another box and wondering where I could get one. Smiley

The sequins really made me laugh because of the night I sorted 10,000 sequins. I love these sequins because they are already sorted, ROFL!

There's my whimsy book.

Thank you again Beeker for being the bestest swap partner. Now, I have serious swap anxiety. If it's not up to par you don't be afraid to tell me and I will overspoil.

I received my beautiful package from shout4joy.

I received the most amazing lavender dead sea salts. I can't stop smelling them. I love the beautiful cold press soap. It's also made from lavender. I can't stop smelling those either. She also made me a beautiful quilted bag. It shuts magnetically. I love it. I really needed this. My other goodies of my bath sponge in my favorite color, a pretty hair wrap, nail brush & a soap shaver. I always wanted a soap shaver but never could find one.

Thank you so much shout4joy. You spoiled me.

Crossing fingers I can get this posted before we go out again. I am paranoid about my ISP right now, lol. This is what I sent Miss Disney a few weeks ago. She wanted a brag book so I made her one. Smiley I used my Cricut, Gypsy and the Mickey Mouse cartridges to design it.

Here's one pic:

The rest are here because there are a lot of pics and I don't want to overwhelm you all. Smiley Rest of pics: http://s54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/lylacfey/Swaps/OTDT/

It turned out super cute and I hope she loves it.

I received my beautiful angel package from Phoenix today. It's so perfect. Thank you so much and hugs to you Phoenix. I am sorry for the bad quality of pics. We bought a new camera and apparently it sucks or we suck taking photos with it. My ISP is going in and out, in and out. We have had an outage since New Year's Eve. We just went out and signed up with a different service so hopefully next week my life will be back to normal.

Here's my beautiful charm bracelet:

I love it so much. The picture does not do it justice. It's absolutely stunning. Thank you again Phoenix.

Wow! I finally found this darn thread, lol. Why is it when you forget to bookmark something you can't find the thread.

Edie- I am so glad you loved everything. I was really worried about the baklava since we never have sent it before.

Isn't that Popcorn the yummiest ever? Did you find the recipes? It's Reeses Peanut Butter cereal, mixed with almond bark and peanuts. If you all want the recipe I can upload it.

I received from Edie yesterday too. It was a challenging day. I also have lupus which decided to flare up on said challenging day. I was knocked down fast. Edie's package was perfect.

DH & I went out to run an errand. We came back home just to pick up the package. We delved into it while we were in the car.

It's an amazing package. Thank you Edie!

Here's the pics:

This is the sweet can she sent with all the goodies inside. She sent the most heavenly fudge that DH & I can't stop eating. She also sent heavenly brownies too. She also sent the most beautiful pot holder. Thank you so much Edie. DH & I both love it.

Pic of the beautiful pot holder:

Pic of the brownies:

It came in the cutest takeout box:

Thank you again Edie for being such a great swap partner.

Hi! I finally got a chance to post pics of Juliel85's beautiful yarn. I am sorry they are late but I PM'd the day I received. Christmas and changing my sleep schedule around has me a bit "jet lag". Now on to pics:

Thank you Juliel85. I have received from everyone. Thank you for the great swap. I am making my scarf when I get a break from Christmas crafting.
