Okay....as promised....here's the stuff I got from the ever-fabulous Kiwimonkey!!!

Fun shrinky-dink bobby pins in some of my favorite themes. She did some awesome stalking here...There's hearts and gnomes and skulls and mixtapes and swallows and cherries! All things that I like very much!!!! Grin

And keeping with the unplanned hair theme...beaded flower barrettes! (I almost made some of these for her too, funny enough!)

And the most amazing thing EVER....

The Wonder Woman purse!!!! I instantly put everything in it and carried it all week!!! Isn't it amazing?!?!

Close up of the design...

And I KNOW how you craftsters are...you want to know about the lining!!! Isn't this just too much fun?!?!? I love the lining!!!!

Thanks so much, Kiwimonkey....You have no idea how you made my week/month so much better....it totally brightened my whole attitude! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Kiss

And can I just share how in BOTH rounds of the Invite Your Partner Swap, My "dates" and I have had some weird psychic connection and we make each other the same sorts of things without ever talking about it?!?! This time it was hair stuff, last round it was altered Pez dispensers....So weird, but so cool!!!  Cheesy

Seriously...those strawberries look even yummier than the real thing!!! Shocked

Okay...here's my reveal packge! Sorry it has taken me so long to post!

I have known from the postmarks that my FOC was from Alaska...then she sent me Alaskan goodies!!! Two YUMMY soaps...one lavender and one fireweed scented. (I have no idea what fireweed is!?!? It smells beautiful though!) And tons of postcards! (There's actually one more than this but the boy stole it to put on his wall of postcards before I could get a picture!)

And a recap...

First package...Wonder Woman theme...wristlet, quick change altered altoid tin, shrinky dink necklaces and extras for the inside of the tin.

Second package...body positive messages all around! All the awesome T-shirts, a sign for my door and one for my desk, and rhinestone letters.

Third package...My favorite colors...purse, needle roll, flip flops, ribbon, earrings, beads for my girls at work, stickers and more rhinestones...

So...who has been spoiling me all this time??? Why, none other than the most awesome FOC ever....

Thank you so much, Cinderly....you have been too wonderful!!! Kiss Kiss Kiss

I just realized how bad I suck. Secret FOC...I am so sorry for not posting pics!!! You are just the best and I use the stuff from this package all the time!!! Wait...I use all the stuff you sent all the time...you have no clue how useful everything has been!!! Oh, how I heart you... Kiss

My third package....Prepare to be jealous!!!

This awesome purse! It's not only my favorite colors, but it's much more basic than most of the stuff I own, which is good! It's a great size...it holds just enough of my crap without me carrying around a HUGE tote bag full o'stuff!

How cute is the lining??? I just love this bag! Even the boy was like, "That bag is so cute! Where'd you get it again?" Smiley

Not one, but two really cute pairs of flip flops!!! In PINK! Plus tons of ribbon, which is being used already in various projects!

An adorable needle roll which is already in use too!!! The outside is the bright pink fabric and the inside is the fun green ladybug print. I just can't get over how perfect everything is...I would swear my FOC knows me!!!

The awesome extras...(There were also post its which must have been in use as soon as I opened the package...I just realized they were in the picture!) She included Wizard of Oz stickers since it has always been my favorite movie...two dangly pairs of earrings which I have worn to work and gotten MANY compliments on...Some rhinestone letters (how I love things that sparkle!), and a big bag of jewelry making supplies for my girls at work!

I know this post is super long already, but I have to say, it shows what a great stalker my FOC is...I recently posted in another thread about making stuff with my girls at work and how we had no real budget...my FOC went through her supplies and sent stuff for my girls. That really touched me....and she wrote the sweetest little note on it, too. Thanks so much FOC...you are so awesome!!!

Who is my FOC? Go to the reveal thread to find out!!!! Wink

Okay, are y'all ready for this? My secret FOC is just absolutely amazing! She sent such a HUGE package...I am totally spoiled! Count 'em...EIGHT T-shirts with fabulous body-positive messages! I've worn one to work every day this week. It makes me smile, and I love showing them off to the little girls I work with. (They need these kinda messages, and need to know that big girls can love their bodies too!) I honestly was so touched by this package, I actually cried. It was so sweet and so perfect!

The whole package...all 8 shirts and a sign for my desk, and a door sign and some rhinestone letters for blinging stuff out or in case the rhinestones fall off the pink shirt.

A close up of some of my faves.

The messages?
(Top left-right) Pin up girl (pink with Venus of Willendorf)
white- I am beautiful
blue- goddesses have hips
(next row) white with heart- my body my self
green- treating your body as an enemy is a sure way to be really unhappy
white- question the motive$ of the Fa$hion indu$try
(bottom) Gray- You count, calories don't
Black- very cool vintage ad for Fat-ten U Foods...too cute!

Seriously, this was such a great package! Thank you so much, Secret FOC...thank you thank you thank you!!! Kiss

Okay, please excuse my bad pictures! I was just so excited that I couldn't be patient enough to take good pics!

The whole lot...the most awesome of awesome stencilled corduroy Wonder Woman wristlet! Inside was super fun WW shrinky-dink jewelry! A revamped altoids tin...covered in fimo with a WW pic on the front and stars on the bottom, which was turned into my quick change kit (so I can always look my super hero best!...how cute is that?!?!)

The inside of the kit...full of things like easy wipes and brush-ups and oil control sheets and lip gloss and fingernail files and shout wipes (I ALWAYS need these!!!) She added a mirror, which is surrounded by the same fun polka dots fabric as the inside of the wristlet! She ALSO included all the extras that did not fit in my kit...so it's refillable!

Inside the wristlet was these fun necklaces! Made my wish my Wonder Woman shirts were clean so I could wear one tomorrow!  Grin

*Not pictured was a catnip toy...Fred and Aristotle are still batting it around the living room! I'm afraid to take a pic of them for fear they may attack!!!*

Thank you so much, Secret FOC! Great job...I love it all!  Kiss

PS...did you do some stalking to find out about my newfound wristlet obsession or was it just coincidence? I'm not sure if I've mentioned it or not! Wink

You're right, Kiwimonkey...I was being a tease!  Kiss

Here we go...So I walked out after a particularly bad day the day before (My car got broken into...how bad does that suck?  Angry Nothing was taken, but it sucks just the same...) Anyways...so I walk out, half afraid of what I'll find and I see this package and it's got bacon tape all over it! BACON! So after I'm done laughing I decide that it doesn't really matter what time I get to work, I gotta know what I got! I open the box and I wish I had taken pictures because everything was wrapped in pretty tissue paper! It felt like my birthday!!! So SonjaBoo did some amazing stalking...seriously, she made a bunch of stuff from my wists...I so need to update after I'm done typing this!!!

Okay, this is the only thing that I had any idea I was getting...the soap, that is! Erika had told me how she has been loving felting lately, so she asked if I wanted something felted...since I have never done that, it was very cool with me! The bobby pins were something on my wists...aren't they beautiful?!?! And they look pretty cute on me too...I'd show pics, but I'm an icky mess right now.

THEN...there was this fun, adorable clutch!!!

I believe I had commented on (forgive me, I can't remember who!) the french fry and hamburger wallet that was received early on!

I know I commented several times in teh gnome swap how I was so sad that I decided not to join...lucky for me, I had my OWN gnome package!!!

A gnome book, and my own little gnome (which will sit on my desk when I finally get one, I think!)

And a "Chillin' with my gnomies" shirt!!! I loved the one in the gallery...I even had it on my wists! EEP!!!

But the scariest part of the whole darn package was this....

An altered Pez dispenser...made to look like Fred!!!!  Shocked He's got the little devil horns and his mouth wide open, just like in my old avatar!!! How scary is that?!?!?! That was done with NO communication about doing Pez at all!!!!! NONE!

Thank you so much, Sonjaboo!!!  Kiss I was totally spoiled! This was such a great fun swap!!!!

When Herbert first got here, we went on a horseback riding trip with the group I volunteer with. At the ranch, there are peacocks everywhere...very beautiful, but very moody. ICK! Here's Herbert with one of them showing off his feathers.

Okay, here's the stuff that soadchick sent to my boy!

I tried taking pictures of all the stuff, but he really wanted to pose with ALL of it.  Roll Eyes Ya' gotta love him...he was really excited about receiving his very own swap package.

Let me tell you, soadchick is AWESOME with her shrinky-dink skills. Dee got so much enjoyment out of this just because he got some from a friend in a big random package for Christmas, and he had no clue what to do with them....and he wouldn't let me have them! Now I think he's been inspired!

Anyhow, here's what he got...a picture frame with his cat's name on it, a Prince keychain, a Batman hemp necklace, a WWE belt shirinky dink thing that he kept joking he was going to wear as a belt buckle (Help me, please!!! Cheesy ), two tins (one Batman, one that says "Hugs not Drugs"...both full of hugs!) and three postcards, which he promptly took home to add to his wall!

I got a better pic of the necklace that I'll post later! Thanks again, Soadchick...you so made our day!

(edited to add necklace pic!)

Okay, so I have finally got some time to sit down and upload the photos of my fabulous packages!!! First, the second sendout...my big package:

She said she had so much fun making it...playing with glitter really is terrific!  Grin When I got the package I felt that it was a picture frame, and as soon as I opened it a bit and there was glitter all around, I knew what it was...I couldn't get the paper off fast enough!  Grin Isn't it wonderful?

The third sendout...my surprise!

This purse is absolutely adorable, FOC! I love it so much...the colors are fantastic! It's EXTREMELY well made! I'm totally impressed!

And since we craftsters must know...

The lining! Wink

Thank you so much, Secret FOC! You so rock. I can't wait until the next package so I can thank you properly. Kiss
