1  Re: 100 Facts About Me #2 in The Swap Gallery by stringofpearls on: February 18, 2010 01:14:58 AM
Wow! These are all turning out so well Cheesy

Here's the package sarahj2001 sent me. There was a lot of good spying and discovering done here.
The first thing is a cozy blanket in fall colors. I think it's perfect for reading in.

While I'm at it I can have warm feet

and a warm stomach.

Good idea, no?

She also cut this beautiful illustration like one on my wists. I am so glad I got this!

Here's a detail:

I also have a new friend to keep me company.

This is even cuter than the one on my wists. Any suggestions for a name?

Thank you again for my wonderful package! Cheesy

Batik + Turtles = Awesomeness!!!!! 

I found my AWESOME package from Tero! This really is amazing. Ready?

Ok, here it is.

The first thing is a cigar box which is covered with amazing stamps from around the world. I move a lot, so I love to have something to show off my inner gypsy.

The inside is full of everything I could need to keep in touch with everyone...papers, pens, wax, an amazing musical seal, the recipe for envelope glue...EVERYTHING. Can you tell I'm excited?

I also received a lot of tea and some fabric to make a holder for them. I love sewing projects Grin

I read a lot so this bag is perfect to hold my heavy books and supplies as I go.

I have a container of orange coconut body scrub,

milk bubble bath,

homemade laundry soap,

and chi pancake and bread mixes.

As if that wasn't amazing enough, Tero also sent me a beautiful bookmark to take with me on my travels.

I also got a scrumptious jar of orange tahini butter.

Isn't this the most amazing swap package?

Thank you so much Tero! I LOVE my package! Grin

I decided that since my partner disappeared I'm going to post what I sent. Here it is Smiley

Firstly, the hat.

Secondly, this drawing. It looks a bit "sketchy" in the photo but the colors are pretty cool in actuality.

The third thing is a set of cards that crosses Midsummer Night's Dream with Arabian Nights.

The fourth thing is the set of green sparkle shoes (long story...suffice to say they're not intended to be worn.)

Rockabilly Snow White and Rupunzel chocolate are next.

Here is part of the story of Whow Snite.

Lastly, the post-shearing Rapunzel pincushion to go with the hat.

Thanks for looking!

I'll post what I sent Alcmene, also. Then we can have a posting train. Cheesy
Here's what I sent:

A necklace made of crayon with a pencil hidden in the bottom so she can write and doodle to her heatr's content,

a bracelet to write in,

and lastly, leaf earrings made out of a water bottle.

I hope y'all are doing well!

I guess I'll go ahead and post what made Kalan71 Smiley
Firstly, a pair of matching ostrich and peacock feather fans.

I made a matching choker to go with it. The ribbon is black velvet.

There is also a hat that goes with it.

Here's a shot of the three together.

I also stuck in a couple of small goodies but apparently didn't feel the need to take a picture of them.
Thanks for looking everyone and thanks for being such a great partner Alix!

I got my package Smiley
Here are the goodies from JacquelineD.

A shiny bookmark.

A notebook with different papers inside. I think the guy singing on the back is me...

A calendar I can use this year.

And a set of cards. You can see what they look like if you check the picture of the back of the box.

Lastly, a bright red shirt. It's a bit big but I think I can wear it as pjs when I go hiking.

Thanks for the package Smiley

Oh! "Fascinating!" You ladies are goofy Roll Eyes

I have my package now; it came all the way from France Cheesy

Ready? Ok, here goes...

Just so you know, this came in a box with about a million really cool looking stamps on it.
First off, the clip.

Secondly, yummy candy Smiley
My roommate decided it's a good thing these came to me or they'd all be gone by now.
The third thing I saw was this really cute mirror that came in it's own drawstring bag.

Fourth...a garter belt!

I also got some postcards. Can you imagine seeing this view? Gorgeous.

There was some French reading material to go with it all.
After I'm done studying I know what I'll be doing with my free time.

And last, but not least, a pizza!

Wait. What?

Oh! It's a fan!
Lovely, isn't it?

Thank you for everything, Kalan and Alix Grin

My package is here!
Seriously, how cool is it? AND it came with chocolate Tongue Yum.

Here's the package it all came in

The first thing I pulled out

Two Dazzle Dusts (red  and black, of course!)

And everything together!

Finally, a not-so-action-packed action shot

An excellent first swap package, wouldn't you agree?

Thanks Edwards1!

These packages all look so cool Grin

I just realised I never posted teasers and that's part of the fun, right? So before the actual package gets posted on here, here's what I made...
