Atlascoughed - I'm so happy you like your box!!!  I love yours, too - I know this won't be the last box we'll exchange!

Here are all my fab goodies, WARNING! LOTS-o-pictures!

Here's a cool folder she sent and the contents, a zine, a letter, a post card:

We also sent each other a whimsy jar - a small box in her case.  This was completely unintentional and a great surprise!!  The painting she did on this is beautiful and flawless!  I love it.  She sent all kinds of shrinky-dink charms, including some cool birds, which I'll most likely make a bracelet out of.  The little keys are beautiful (I love skeleton keys!)

Also in the whimsy box - a knitted owl (Atlas has skillz...) and a little dino-light.

A wonderful little pouch (which will hold my money at the Sasquatch Music Festival this weekend..)

Inside the pouch was a Sylvia Plath inspired charm bracelet - it's lovely!

Close up:

Thanks so much for an awesome swap - my favorite ever!  My new friend is awesome, and I already have learned a lot for her, and she has broadened my addictions in a way I never thought possible!!

I received this great page from a-roze today.  I think you girls have caught one to the fact that I love birdies - I couldn't be happier!!!  The texture on this page is incredible, I wish I had a better camera so all of the details could show!  Enjoy! (I know I do...!)

This is my first attempt at soldering with the aide of flux - what a difference it made!!! It's pretty quick and dirty, but I love how it turned out:

I also received from atlascoughed!!!!!!  I LOVE my package! This is the greatest swap because I know I have a great friend for the rest of my life!  Atlascoughed and I were meant to be friends, that cannot be denied!

Here are the wonderful contents of her package!

Some local periodicals and a wonderful letter:

A "De-Stress Kit" that was greatly needed after a crazy week!  Most of it has already been used by me at this point!  She included a yummy coffee candle, some beauty products, bath fizzies, a neck warmer, and chocolate (yum!).

This beautiful necklace is made with one of my favorite color combinations, green/pink:

Some extra goodies: a cool postcard, a matchbook notebook (we're both writers), and a little turtle finger puppet (which I'll bring to work and my students will fight over....)

And a KNITTING KIT!  I'm so excited!  I've been wanting to learn for awhile, and she made me a kit with all the necessary supplies, extra yarn, a Stitch-and-Bitch book and journal, and even a video tutorial!

Yarn in my fav colors: blue and brown!

This is such a perfect package for me!!!  I love it!  Thanks so much, you know I love you girl!

Oh yay!!!  I received from AtlasCoughed and I am overjoyed! Everything she sent was fabulous, and now I have major swap anxiety about her package (I wish I'd sent more!!!!)

Here are all the amazing goodies, thanks so much, Alex, I heart you!!!!

TONS of "extras", Good Earth Tea (which is one of my favorites, too!), lots of candies, paper goodies, beach glass, beads, pens, yummy incense and more!

Two beautiful postcards:

I want to go to Paris, too!

The photos she sent are on a CD, and I love them, thank you!!

Stationary items - lots of them... we have a mutual addiction for paper!

Her favorite things! Two crafty zine, written by HER! A super yummy pineapple scented soap in a cute little holder/purse, SCISSORS!  (I love scissors too, the sharper the better Wink) and a book by Pratchett.  My boyfriends been begging me to read his stuff for awhile, this is officially my intervention  Smiley

And the six other items, which are in NO WAY "small"! An adorable cyclops monster, SOCKS! a little birdie stuffie, a yummy smelling cupcake to add to my collection, some Decemberists stuff (I LOVE them!), and a cool pocket notebook which I'll fill up with ideas of what to send her next time!

Alex - thanks so much for everything!

This has been the greatest swap I have ever done - and it's not even half over!  I feel like I have made such a wonderful friend who will last a long time!
