Here is a scan of some of the items Writer78 sent me (remember that this is just a very small sampling, as I only have a scanner and no digital camera!):

And here's a description of everything she sent, starting with what you see in the picture:

-cards from the board game Clue, and a few sheets of the paper you use playing the game as well (interesting, because I just got a handful of Operation game cards from my cousin's trash yesterday!)

-silver string (very pretty!)

-a handful of mosaic tiles in blues & white (never had these before, but they're cool, and I have an idea for them already)

-a little tin (I love little containers!) full of some random beads (also very cool, especially the silver leaves)

-decorative edge scissors for scrapbooking (a design I don't have yet!)

-tons (!) of glass marble things to make marble magnets (I've been wanting to try making them for ages, but never actually bought the marbles.  And I was reading all the marble magnet threads here on craftster the night before I got my package!)

-a HUGE piece of this awesome silky pink & brown striped fabric (which I promptly unfolded and wrapped around me like a shawl, lol)

-a pile of felt (yay, I was needing some new colors!)

-some pictures/cutouts to use for collage or decopage

-a small silver picture frame

-a piece of red & tan checked fabric

-a very pretty piece of blue & silver fabric

-letter stickers

-red iron-on letters (I wish there was more than one A, but I can still think of several things I can spell with them!)

-a package of Engraving Art boards (like scratch art) and the tools to use with them (I actually have a couple of kits by this same company, but I was afraid to try them because I wanted to practice first.  Now I can practice on the blanks!)

-a really nice book about Hardanger embroidery (a little beyond my skill level at the moment, but I'm going to hang onto it and try it when I get a little better!)

-a package of this shredded papery stuff like you would use in a basket with a fake flower arrangement or something (not sure what I'd do with this, but I'll bet my grandma can use it)

Did I forget anything?  Thank you so much, Writer78, for the awesome swap package!

Edited to add:
Oh shoot, I did forget something!   Wink  She also send a really cool little drawstring pouch that she made, I LOVE IT!   Grin

And here's my version:

The scan isn't great, but it looks awesome in real life.   Grin
