I got my Box today from Rotten! Its absolutely amazing!

The fabric is right up my alley! I love the yarn and am so excited to get some wool and cotton my new 12 week old puppy loves the fun fur and i plan to knit him something from it. Im happy too have zippers right in the time to be sewing my purse for the fill a swap purse. The velvet ribbon is going to go into an amazing trim to a purse. Im thinking brown and blue. the fiber is so soft im excited to spin it. She sent some cross stitch and granny squares i will have a fun time thinking of what i should do with them ^_^ Oh and i would love to know what the paper things are?  If they are printed paper or something else im not sure but they are amazing and adorable! The two are my favorite one has a beaker on a Bunsen burner and the other has mushrooms and porcupines they are so cute and nerdy and i love it. Thanks so much for the amazing package!

So I received from OhThat last Saturday, but had to run out of town for the last two days.

But now that I am back, on to pictures!

The loot, in all of its glory.

Glass panels for things like stained glass work or to place in pottery.

Some of the softest, yummy yarn.

Plarn! How cool!

Inches. Check out the little dachshund in the bottom right hand corner.

Wire, which I will attempt to crochet into jewelry, embroidery thread, also great for jewelry, pink ribbon and a skein of fluffy, claret colored yarn. That just has to be made into a big chrysanthemum flower for fall.

Cardstock, great for stitching on and brads for scrapbooking.

But the best part I think?

'Cool box!' I think. 'What could be inside?'

ZOMG! Beads to put on my crochet wire jewelry! Look at it, it even has a piece of foam on the lid so you can dump the beads out right there and work. How awesome is that?

Thank you OhThat. It was a wonderful box and you have given me great inspiration.

Great boxes everyone! Looking at ya'lls', I hope mine is sufficient and that my partner likes it...

Here is my box from Oops Creations (our fantastic organizer!):

The entire box laid out on my card table. The box included a ton of stuff, so here is a short list:
Paper Trimmer, Leather Square Samples, Foam Stamp, Magnets, Tea Bag Carrier, Yarns, Plastic Food Charms, Ribbon, Raffia, Fabric, Tulle, Scrapbooking Paper, Stickers, Mat Board (I think) Samples, Glitter Paint, Tiles, Scrapbook Album

And a few of my favorites:

Raffia and Ribbon

Scrapbooking Paper and Album

Gorgeous Yarns

Huge Envelope Full of Stickers!!!!!

Really great magnets that I put on my fridge, not in my crafting box...

And my favorite (although I had to ask what it was...) - a teabag carrier!!!! How cool is that! I've been using it to carry my tea to school in my bag. Another teacher keeps trying to steal it, so I may have to make her one too!

Thanks so much! This box was great!

I will try to keep my pictures to a minimum, though I took more.


a slough of needle (circs and straights)

NON-yarn things included: spools of thread for plying handspun, buttons (green my favorite color!), some beads, colored wire.

Here is the whole lot:

BONUS: some of the yarn included was spun on the spindle. SCORE!!!

I received from Dawnstrees Wednesday and everything is amazng! I'm so sorry I didn't post sooner - it's been hectic here, to say the least. Anyway, on to the pictures:

A ton of fabrics - mostly reclaimed from old clothing. I always reuse wherever possible, including while crafting, so this is right up my alley! I'm looking forward to working with new textures (I typically stick to cotton and jersey), and I love the Japan-inspired shirt!

I'm a VERY beginning knitter (as in, I'm 1/4 finished with my first scarf ever...) but this is inspiration to keep trying!

Lots of things in this picture: Wood crafts, magnets, and cross stitch fabric. I like to paint and don't generally get the chance to so this is great! Also, I love the magnet sheets! Oh do I have plans for these... Wink I was out of the fabric for embroidery, so what good timing!

Cute stickers, envelopes, scrapping/note paper, and dawnstrees' card in the front! The colored paper is heat sensitive, you can see my hand print on it to show the effect - this is so cool! I didn't know that even existed lol.

Rocks from her dh's grandfathers collection - the one in the front left reminds me of a necklace I had as a child. Not sure what I'm going to do with these yet, but they look really cool!

Close up of the card - so pretty! I love the papers you used on this.

Thank you so much for everything, I can't wait to use it!  Grin

I have no clue how Cre8ivegenes got all this stuff into one little box without it exploding! 

The pretty little bag with beads and mirrors in jars, plus some truly lovely cloth remnants:

Close up of the beautiful lace:

Paper samples and what I think are tie patterns?

Some Christmas patterns for cloth ornaments, pillows, etc:

Thank you very much Cre8ivegenes!

I received my box today from hoboe, I was so excited to receive my first swap package!! Here is what I got.....

Everything together...

All the fabric....I really love the blue and silver one in front, and all of the really. I am excited to figure out what to do with all of them!

Trim, for my purses or anything really, I just have to keep the one with the little balls away form my dog (she is very interested in what it might taste like!)

And finally...

OLD BUTTONS!!! I love the green square ones!

Thanks for a great first swap!!!
