I received from Lindsay614! As soon as I find my card adapter I will post pictures. Everything is amazing, I was spoiled!

Edit: A friend stopped by so this took longer than I thought! Anyways, be amazed at the awesomeness of everything!

First, the package had the most adorable octopus on it! (also, obligatory cat picture)

I really do have 5 cats... but apparently Izzy is the only one interested in my packages!

Group photo. Also, this is the only time Devi (my kitty!) has been interested

Look at all the amazing stuff!

First, I pulled this out and squeed! Yes, my cats thought I was strange

and a close up:

Its a mini wall quilt! I love it so much and it looks amazing in my room! Right now its folded up out of kitties' way since I had to shoo everyone away from it already until I can get some nails up. Serious, Lindsay, this is amazing!

Next is this amazing bag:

with a jellyfish and octopus appliqued on it, and some awesome button extras she bought


Then an awesome squid pillow:

So cute!

And finally these three guys:

A stuffed jellyfish, a stuffed squid, and a socktopus! Also adorable and they fit in great with my room too!

Also, she sent me some really cool stickers from the same person she bought the buttons from:

There are also black ones with white jellies on them!

Thank you so much! Everything is amazing, I was so spoiled!

Oh, and finally, another cat loving everything picture:

I think Izzy loves swaps almost as much as I do!

I still feel pretty guilty about getting 2 packages, but I figured that Id keep my eyes peeled on the angel board and put myself forward to angel for someone else, I wouldnt feel so guilty then  Smiley

anyways here are some of the goodies Junior mint made for me, I just took a few close up pics of some of the things as there are photos already of the others

I cant belive how long it took to get to the uk!


Opening the box, I love the hoobs and yoyo notes


I adore this little guy




I love this frame, Im gonna put a photo of my littles at the beach in it


I love this, I have done one of these foil pictures before, but never seen them in colour, they take ages to do, so much fine detail

I am SO excited about the package that TheSaphhireMoon sent me. She is so talented and thoughtful and she crafted the most amazing sea goodies for me. I am so in love with this stuff!!!

First up, a marvelous tote bag made with the greatest sea printed panels! I'm going to use this to take my magazines and sunscreen to the beach. It really makes me feel like summer is close!


Next, a zippered pouch. You can never have enough of these. I've already transferred my chapsticks into it Smiley. Notice the super cute dolphin charm.


The jewelry, oh the jewelry!! I just love it. The turquoise colors are so beautiful and just my taste. The shell pendant is stunning and so smooth and soft to the touch. It really feels so good to wear.


TSM sent another beautiful long beaded necklace but I was already wearing it by the time I took pictures. You can kind of see it in this action shot. I've been scampering about the house in my new jewelry all night Smiley


Prepare to have your jaw dropped...TSM made me the most magnificent button art!! I can't even put into words how much I love it. I'm so thrilled to have this unique piece!!




I also received a lovely little fragile sand dollar and a great seashell that is being used as a ring holder in the bathroom already Smiley.


Thank you SO much TheSapphireMoon. I had so much fun being partnered with you and I could not be more thrilled with my loot!!

I received my package from Canada (after two weeks)
and here is my fabulous loot:

a choker necklace with a cute coral pendant



a grow-a-ray and a nautical star patch she bought and did not use



some really funny magnets



a neat decorated silver box (nautical punk theme) with tentacle earrings



And one of the coolest things, inspired by my wist:
A zombie on a day on the beach. Everybody wonders what he carries in his hand..



And the other coolest thing:
A Kool Aid purse:



you may wonder what it has to do with the sea...
well, it has a nautical lining. I love it!



Thank you eeyore_witch for all the great stuff. It has has been a fun swap again!

I received from Alchamy513 the same day she got my package!! Wowsa.... here's the wonderful loot! Jessica is a talented yarnie and jewelery artist! I can tell all the details and love that went into making this package, and you'll see it too...

Are you ready? Here's everything...


Stuffed whale! I loved the detail--this guy even has a blowhole! This guy just makes me smile...


Seahorse necklace--action shot. Really pretty colors!


Sea turtle charm, starfish earrings and dolphin earrings! I wear a lot of dangly earrings, so these are sure to get lots of use!


Cute stuffed penguin--I love Arctic animals! The yarn is really thick and pretty too... which leads to...


An awesome carry-all bag for me to take on vacation! I told Jessica one of my favorite things about the sea was taking cruises...hehe. Smiley This is my favorite, and I absolutely cannot wait to use this... my husband loves it too! The yarn is really thick and I think this bag is going to be very durable. It's also in two of my favorite colors, and it also reminds me of the ocean!


This is an amazing package!! Thanks so much Alchamy513--I feel very lucky to have had you as a partner!

And I'm so glad you liked all your stuff as well. I thought the batik prints would go well with your room's color scheme, so I'm really glad I went that direction!

I got my awesome package from Glamis today.....it came all the way from Germany.

She listened to what i liked and needed. I love Dolphins and Mermaids the most and I needed stuff for my Dolphin themed bathroom....

Here's a felt bowl...perfect for my hair ties.

Next is a Dolphin mobile....


Then she noticed my love of sock monkeys and made me a sock monkey mermaid...


Then she sent this cute chubby mermaid and dolphin figures...

I'm not a little girl by any means so the chubby mermaid is my favorite.

Thanks you so much Glamis......I love everything and thanks for taking the time to know me.

Well I got my package (already!) from Bexster.  This is going to be a pic heavy post!

First here is my messenger bag embroidered by Bex:


Here is the inside (I love Japan, so this Asian-inspired fabric was perfect for me  Grin)


Next was a starfish full of buttons and a matching bookmark:


Then there was two embroidered pictures:


Here is a close up of the treasure chest:


And of course, some lovely candy was added to the mix:


Included in the package was a ring (which unfortunately was broken by the time it arrived  Undecided  I'm sure I can fix it with my glue gun though!) , an origami star, and a charm bracelet which I couldn't get a good pic of this late at night.

Thank you so much Becky for a great package, I can tell a lot of work went into it and I hope that mine arrives there as quickly as possible!

I received confirmation that Suzuka got my package!  I really hope she likes it.  TheSapphireMoon asked me to post pictures so here we go
First, a squid of some sort.  It's made of an old rainbow scarf that I've made several other things from as well.


Second, I made a bag.  It's a blue gradient type fabric with white flowers and it reminded me of the sea.  I sewed the handles on wrong and I hope they're not too short.  They're a dark blue semi-mesh like fabric with turquoise zigzags in the middle.  The turquoise thread is actually antique thread from my bisnonna (great grandmother) who was a seamstress.  The thread is almost a hundred years old. 
I appliqued a whale zig zagged with the same thread.  I used fabric paint to add an eye and a mouth and bubbles, then realized that whales don't give off bubbles....well at least it's cute!

close up of the whale:

close up of the zig zagging:

The orca button used to close it:


I also included a necklace with a hematite dolphin pendant and two shell beads, but I didn't get a picture of that Sad

Last but not least I sent an extra, a wooden turtle charm I got as a free gift when I bought some beads several months ago.  You can see it in this picture:

Here is my TOTALLY RAD package from LimeRiot!!


The whole lot of it!!  Extra shell buttons and beads, WOOHOO!  I was going to buy these same shell beads the other day, good thing I didn't.  The knitted felted bowl set TOTALLY rocks!!  Love the tote with all it's pockets, too.


Awesome little corked bottles with nifty sticker labels.


Closeup of said labels.


Sand dollar mini art quilt.  This is SO adorable!  Uses the same batik as is on the totebag.


The most adorable little knit seahorse, love his colors!

Thank you SO much, LimeRiot.  I hope you like my package to you just as much Smiley

I am one lucky swapper!  After fearing my package from junior mint had gone missing I was given a swap angel who was super quick in getting out a great package to me, as it turned out the missing package arrived the day after my angel posted.  Here is the fabby package my angel puzzler sent to me

A little rucksack bag made with stunning fabric, some shells set out in a star displayed in a frame, a note book and 2 bookmarks, one with shells and one with mermaids
 

sorry this is such a bad photo, my phone just wouldnt take a good close up of this




thankyou so much puzzler for a great angel package, I love everything and big thanks to our lovely organiser for all your help, I have really enjoyed this swap

I received my package from Veri today, which was motivation enough to get my sick self up and dressed and off to the post office to send my package!  I even brought my new whale with me!

I got a whale!!  I'm so happy with him!  I decided it was a him because for some reason almost all of my stuffies are male.  


With me


With a whale I made myself a while ago.  Veri's whale looks so much better.  I'm glad Large Whale (the one I made) has a new pal in New Whale (the one Veri made).  I'm not terribly creative with names am I?


Even the packaging was amazing, although unfortunately it was damaged when it got to me Sad but it was so beautiful!  My boyfriend greatly enjoyed correcting my pronunciation of Slovenia.  I pronounce it like it's pronounced in Italian cause my mom does cause her mom did cause her mom was from Italy.  It provided him hours of fun.



Now I'm super excited for Suzuka to recieve!!!

Here's all my AWESOME goodies!  I just loved everything, and although I'm sending late (tomorrow) I hope my partner likes her stuff too!

Some awesome inchies in a cute holder, 2 inchies on the front of the card (they are removable) and one more inside the card! These are some of the cutest ones I've ever gotten.


An awesome tea wallet and 5 scrabble tile magnets.  One even has my name on it!


A very cute notebook, I think my fave is the ribbons at the top, so very bright and colorful.


A beautiful book thong (with my name!) Two pairs of cute earrings, one pair with suns, the others have a sand dollar in the middle, and a (keychain?) with a beautiful starfish.


I loved it all!
