oh wow,
am I the first to post here?
darkladymajesta sent a very nice pkg,
with 4 glasses that she hand-painted (polka dots!  love'em)
had to put the bubble wrap inside to show the design....
and she included a hand-made book with cute lil forest creatures stamped all through.
Way to go on crafting all of that for the first time!
And cute bonus items, as well~
a card-making kit, gel pens, and a cute pail (plan to use as a pencil cup in my classroom)

(if you have better pics, please post!  
my skills are lacking in that area  Smiley

I got my wonderful angel pkg from CraftyDeb,...ummm, I mean YarnorFabric,
and let me tell you,
she is one TRICKY organizer!!
I had NO idea she was the one sending the pkg!

And she spoiled me by sending 2 big fabric grocery size bags (as large as the brown
paper bags, I think!) as well as 2 smaller bags that fold up into the most darling little pouches
with pull strings!

Thank you so so so much, Deb!!
You are the greatest!!
(and if you have better pics, please share with the group Smiley

First, each pkg wrapped in stamped tissue paper for the appropriate letter  Smiley

K = Karen origami bookmarks....so pretty!  And I love origami paperwork!
A = Accordion handmade book....this is new to me, and really nice!

R= Romantic clay bird feeder.....this will be perfect to hang on our deck & watch the birdies come to feed!  Love it!!  (little pun, bec. it says "love" inside the dish)
E = Earthy handmade soaps....these are from Lush, which I have really really been wanting to try ever since my dd went to San Francisco & just raved about the soap!!  thanks thanks thanks (smell awesome)

and last but not least (oh, of course my camera battery died as I tried to take this final pic, so had to scan them instead.....)
N = NOT the right season for felted Christmas trees!!   These are fantastic to add to my collection & they are adorable!!!

blushingbluegrass, those are knit cloths (sort of my specialty craft Smiley
and the tote....well, I've never attempted that type of crafting before....I had
to laugh at myself with the various products I bought to use on the tote, and
none of them worked the way I thought they would!  It was quite the learning curve!
P.S.  Couldn't decide about coloring in the leaves -- you may want to; I'm sure you are more artistic than I am!

and no worries about your package, it is just perfect!
(sorry that the pic is not more centered)

I cannot wait to try my new coffee, and the pillow cover is outstanding!
In case you can't see, she embroidered "A fungus among us" in the corner!
It is nicely done!
Thanks for being my partner!!

got my pkg, and funthreads completely spoiled me!!
I am in awe of her skills~

Here is everything in the wrapping (felt like my bday!):

and here are the goodies!
First, we have a great box bag for me to keep a knitting project when I'm on the go:

oh, and she put fabric inside for future crafting!  bonus   Grin
upon further unpacking, these are actually 3 reusable shopping totes
that fold up into little squares!!!!
squeeeee!!  Carol really understands my bag fetish   Grin

Next, a cute lil birdie zip pouch:

Third, a neat wall hanging (love the zipper detail!):

And finally, the piece de resistance:

a gorgeous wall hanging that is just SO creative & beautiful!  Even has my & my dh's initials on the
tree trunk Smiley

and on the back ---
a great memento of this fantastic swap:

Any one of these items would have made my day, but all FOUR  SEVEN Huh?
Oh my stars!!
I have been in shock (in a nice way Smiley ever since I opened the box!
I cannot begin to thank you enough, Carol!
Please know how much everything is loved, and if you have better pics, feel free to post!

Prepare to be jealous!!  Smiley
My amazing partner sent another wonderful box of yarnie goodness
(I was lucky enough to be matched with her in a previous round, also!)
Here is the first glimpse of the goodies:

(everything has tags...she's so clever!)

Then we have:
Local = some yummy handmade soap
Lumpy = Mission Falls cotton (have never tried this, so exciting!)
Sender's Choice = a crocheted washcloth (love this -- she actually used some yarn I sent her last time! plus I can't crochet to save my life, so I'm in awe of her skills)

Smaller than 2" = a needle holder from Colonial Williamsburg, a keychain size crochet hook for making repairs, and a cute stitch marker *handmade*
Long = Leicester Longwool Yarn from Colonial Williamsburg!  How neat -- grown on historic sheep, she says in her note, and natural dyed....
The Letter L = Lavender Llama Lancaster Logndraw Spun....soft and shiny!  Another thing I've never tried before...llama!  Hey, did you spin this yourself??
and last but not least:
GOLDEN = 2 skeins of the most beautiful GOLDEN brown superwash natural dyed by Hazel herself!!!
Can you imagine??  What a wonderful pkg!
(oh, and the chocolate bar & coffee will be enjoyed & appreciated by me & my family   Grin
Thenutmeg2000, you ROCK!!  
Thanks a million Smiley

I received my AWESOME package from Kayrun.  She made me a beautiful Poncho which I've always wanted and great wash clothes.  I took a pic but it won't transfer from my camera for some reason.

But believe me, it is so jealous worthy Smiley

I can share a couple of pics, but I'm sure yours are better (I always snap in a hurry, ready to go to the p.o.!)

and 1 of the cloths:
