I got my package from when I am sixty four - it really is the very best package I have recieved! She spoiled me rotten and I am so grateful it arrived today! (I was having a bad day)
SO here are the pictures!

Here is everything in a nutshell

All of the amazing YUMMY goodies! I got tea, coffee, scones (which my H and I LOVE!), cocoa, stir honey sticks and spicy Texas mix! See, I told you she spoiled me! Smiley
Oh, she also crafted a Mr. Tea feltie... he is adorable!

A set of autumn napkins. Look at that embroidery!

Also, she crafted me a sleep mask (very ironic with a newborn  Cheesy), acorn shaped coasters, a coffee sleeve and some hand printed recipe cards - everything is wonderful!

AND there is more!
An AWESOME Halloween hand towel, glitter leaf buttons, a pair of handmade earrings, a bar of cinnamon orange soap (it smells heavenly!) and she also included a Christmas ornament for Jordan Smiley

This package is Jordan approved!  Cool

There was so many goodie in the package- mulled wine spices (mmmmm), my favourite type of tea in super posh form, hot chocolate, a little teapot bead, stash stuff, and two beautiful tea towels taht ia m piutting on my wall- no chance of them getting used for my minging washing up!

Iv tried to explain to Tyne how much i love this package, and basically, I LOVE IT!!!!!! It really made my month after having such a hard time with exams and workload. I was really outdone in this swap and plan to sent a tea towle through to Tyne as soon as i have time.

Thankyou so much! You were the best partner EVER!

Technically my partner hasn't received her package yet (it is out for delivery right now), but it appears that she has gone MIA and deleted her Craftster account. Sad  I'm guessing that she won't be posting pictures of what she received, so here they are from me instead. nerdlover indicated that her favorite colors were pink and brown and that she liked polka dots, so this swap package features both.

Everything together:

Mug and fillers:

The bottle is a small bottle of vanilla coffee syrup. I included a few felt-topped wooden stirring sticks and a crocheted mug cozy.

Drink samples:

A few packets of tea in a polka-dotted tea wallet, single-serving hot cocoas, and a half-pound of coffee from one of my favorite Minneapolis coffee shops. I believe the owner gave me his organic Turkish roast, which he roasted himself.

Marble Magnets:

Might be hard to see in the photo, but they spell out coffee, tea and brew.

Coffee Cup Cozy:

Empty Caribou Coffee cup not included.

And finally, some tile coasters:

Thrifted tiles with pink and brown scrapbook paper decoupaged to the top with felt bottoms.

What a happy surprise! My swap angel package arrived this morning - thank you so much Daniethanas! You outdid yourself with this package - I love it. Without further ado, here are the goodies:

The mug and goodies inside. Yum! This mug arrived just in time as I start back to work tomorrow morning after a few weeks off. Glad to be able to bring my coffee with me for a change!

Samples of some New England roasted beans including two fun flavored coffees:

Coffee themed marble magnets! Hard to tell in this photo, but the are the XL size. Very cute!

All of the handmade items together. A dishcloth, small scrubby, crocheted coffee cuff, coasters, and colorful bookmark. These are all great! I can crochet, but nowhere near this fancy.

Slightly better view of the bookmark. This thing is AWESOME. Daniethanas used thread to make it and it is so delicate. I can't imagine all of those tiny little crochet stitches. The best part is that I was just thinking the other day that I needed a proper bookmark as I tend to use receipts, envelopes, or whatever other scrap of paper I can find to mark my page. This one is much better.

Lots of fun extras! Little buttons, plenty of hot cocoa, cookies, candies, and a purse-sized planner.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful package, Daniethanas. It was well worth the wait!

I wanted an Alice In Wonderland theme and boy did I get some awesome stuff from the lovely sprklgrl81 :-D

Sorry it took me sooo long to post pictures, I love everything so much!
Here are my cuppies!

3 of them! also pictured is some Italian roast coffee which is my absolute favorite, some mexicocoa, which I haven't tried but I cant wait to!  I love the travel mug I use it everyday she also included three sleeves so I can switch it up! such a great idea...  Grin Also you can't really read the whole mug that says "they will not wait... can't be late" and it has a really cute clock in the center of it. The other mug is polka dotted. *not pictured is chai bought from a local Indian store, I haven't tried this one yet either.

Next my goodies which includes a bunch of individual cookies, nutella (Omg this stuff is amazingly good I saw it in the store one day and said "eww are you serious?" and passed it up, now I have a jar  Cheesy)  Also she made me some chocolate spoons in three different flavors *cinnamon *creme de menthe *peppermint, they are incredibly yummy!  and my favorite kind of tea... The little cookie jar is so perfect it has a cupcake and crossbones and says "sweet as hell" and iron on cuppycakes!

These little jars are awesome, and inside is chocolate covered blueberries, yum!

On to the most awesomely embroidered tea towel! she also embroidered a tote that is too cute! I don't have it pictured because I some how I deleted the group shot  Roll Eyes (If you have a pic please post it Smiley )

If I missed anything I am sorry my camera is a tricky beast!

I was so spoiled! Thanks again sprklgrl81, you were an awesome partner!

As promised, PICS.  There is even more in this great package, but my bf thought he would "help" unpack by cleaning off my desk and craft space (you know, the first things I unpacked and organized)  At least he tried lol  My partner was so incredibly creative!

Group Shot minus mug, because I'm using it.  I love the matching mommy & baby cat ear hats!  The awesome wooden box contains some teas, including a jasmine ball (I didn't know what it was until I read your note).  She dyed it with earl gray tea then oiled and sanded it. 

close up of the great jewelry, felted leaf magnet, and fringe of the scarf

Inside pouch of the brilliant "Tea Bag" purse

My awesomely cool mug that she etched herself with this great tree and bird, in use the second I got it.  WOW!

As I said, there is even more, but I have to wait for the bf to get home and show me where he put it in his helping.  It included some awesome button hair clips, beaded anklet, and more earrings.  I just wanted to go ahead and show off all my goodies hehe

So I guess my partner never received  Undecided  but barbalot said I should post pics of what I sent anyway.

I didn't get pictures of everything and I handspun some yarn for my partner from coffee dyed roving which I can't find a picture of the finish object but here it is in it's dye bath.  It also had some swirls of dark brown and raspberry merino, thick thin and about 100 yards.  It was my medium sized project.  And it smelled like heaven after it was finished!  Hopefully I can find a finished pic somewhere  Huh

This was straight from her wists and it the chemical symbol for caffeine.  I made it from Shrinky and strung it on a SS chain.  This I was really proud of since it took a long time to cut all those two holes in the middle

This was also from her wists, a small bottle top pincushion and I made it into a cup-o-cocoa (also in one of her favorite colors)

And then I made her a to-go cozy with buttons (She loves a buttons!)

I didn't get all the goodies in a picture since I thought that she would be able to take one.  But I send her along a coffee mug from a local artist.  It had this beautiful deep brown glaze on it and was perfect for a cup of tea.  I also sent her her favorite cocoa (land-o-lakes mint chocolate) and a couple of sweets.  And I found some amazing loose-leaf teas at our local co-op so I sent her a variety.

Well, hopefully one day she still receives it - I would be just so bummed that I work on all of it for nothing.
