I got my package today!  Hooray! (Let's see how long I can rhyme) It's my favorite of all time!

Okay, enough of that.  BEHOLD!  The pic obeseness that is the awesomeness that is my package from Juicebox29

Everything in the box...

J - is for Joyful PMS Kit!

I have been dying for one of those microwavable heat pad things, and doppelJess took the task on wonderfully!  There's also cute tissues (I tend to cry A LOT, LoL) and the little square is filled with the same feed corn, it's something I can throw at John!!  HA!

And a close up of the fabric that we both agree is so perfect for me,  Grin

E - is for Enjoy A Relaxing Evening

Yummy Bath Gel, Apple bath salts that smell SO GOOD and a bath bomb!  Now if only I could get the cats out of the tub...*edit* Oh, and a great book thong with red dice on each end that got caught up in the tissue paper!

S - is for Supplies

Craft brushes that were totally on my OWS list, big blue glitter, and bold colored star confetti!  Perfection!

S - is for SNACK ATTACK!

A wicked awesome Sundae Kit, a water bottle with a filter in it (PERFECT, 'cause the water here needs filtered), Reese's Cups and a reusable snack bag (that I will now be using to keep John's hard candy and the like in my purse in case his sugar gets low).

Here's John with the candy he's not really allowed to have, LoL

I - is for Irresistible Extras

Nemo and Sponge Bob band-aids, Spray hand sanitizer, and a keyring bottle opener!  As prepared as I am for "everything" on a daily basis with my giant bag, I don't have a bottle opener!  And I love that it's from your school, I'll never be able to forget you Twin!

C - is for Cute Magnets and Cat Toys

The felt food kawaii magnets

And the cat toys - felt decapitated rats heads and a rope!

I am telling you, she is possibly watching us through a hidden camera - the cats have these toys called squirrel tails, they're basically long fur tails with a little bit of a hard face with eyes...they tear off the little heads and ignore the tails!  Now they just have heads, perfect!

A - is for Accessories and Awesome note cards

"Candy" raver-type braclets (fun!) and adorable stamped Thank You cards.  

Everything is perfect and amazing and I'm SO glad kayrun partnered us up!  This swap was a blast!  Thanks to kayrun for organizing and doppelJess for being such a great partner!

Oh, and shots of the cats playing with everything, they're thumbnails in case you don't wanna see my cat craziness, LoL - please ignore the messy futon mattress on the floor, we only have one A/C unit in the apartment, and it's NOT in the bedroom, heh.

Finally back from cheer camp (an odd thing for someone who's 8 months pregnant to do, I know) and I have goodies to post!!

A - Attractive Bookmarks

Karen got my love of Hello Kitty so well!!  The one on the left isn't crafted, but the other two are.  I just LOVE ladybugs too.  Bookmarks are awesome because I usually have a ton of books "going" at the same time, and I use receipts as bookmarks, and then I can't find my page and it defeats the purpose Smiley

P - Pink cloth & yarn

I love making dishcloths for others, but I had never made any for myself!  Pink is my favorite color!  (And as I am posting these pics, the mailman delivered another package with yummy alpaca yarn!  Pink too!!)

R -Round soap

Plus 2 other natural soaps.  I looove handmade/natural soaps, especially to use with the babies.

I -Important craft supplies

I just got into mosaics the last few months, so this is grout and some really great cool colored mosaic tiles.  I have the PERFECT project for these too!!

L -Leaf bookmark and pattern

This is so cool, I've never seen anything like it before! It can be a bookmark or a necklace (or a headband!) and it's adjustable with a button.  Thank you for including the pattern, I have a feeling I'll make lots of these for Christmas presents.


All kinds of Hello Kitty goodness!  And cool tattoo themed buttons!

Thank you for being such a wonderful partner Kayrun!! It was so much fun to craft for you, and I LOVE everything that I got!! Thank you so much!!

Oh, here's a picture of the inside of the accordion book that I made for Kayrun.  This was a project in my Psychology of Art class, where it was suggested that it could be used for the steps of recovery.  I made my mom one with Bible verses in it.  I just left this one blank on the inside:

After a very long day I finally managed to post the wonderful package my partner notknit sent to me.

1st this super cute card.

Now for all my letters:   ROBIN

R = Retro style apron, retro looking buttons, recipe cards and ribbon.

This girl did some major stalking.  My kitchen is retro 50's pale yellow and aqua.

The buttons are so cute, I have never seen any of these and will have to look for the perfect project to use then on.  I also received some cute cherry recipe cards and cute bird ribbon.

O = Owl, crocheted hotpad

I love this little fellow!  The shape is super cute, I love the color combo and I have a love for hooties!!!!

B = Baked goods as in a crocheted cupcake hat and mini cup cake cards.

The hat is perfect!!  Straight from my wist.  I so admire people who can crochet, and this was made without a pattern, she just made it up as she went.  Amazing!   I have been holding it an looking at in awe!  I just never got past a simple granny square.

I = Ichthyoid ( You clever girl)   A fish hotpad!

This one will make a trip to the lake where we have a trailer and be hung up on the wall.  I love the yarn that was used, so soft and pretty!

N = Nifty monogram note cards.  These are so cool!  I have needed these for a while,  I don't know why, but I never have any paper in my purse so these will come in handy.

notknit Thanks you so much for such a wonderful and well thought out package.

Yep!  This is still my favorite swap! Will be here for the next round, and thank you kayrun for such a great partner and organizing this swap once again!!!!

as a small side note Megz was my partner for the IYP swap Smiley we are friends on facebook because of craftster and we love all the same things. Kayrun asked her to angel for me and didnt know we were in another swap together so it was so awesome when I got my box. I was so excited when she told me why the box was so big that I didnt get a group shot of my things before I tore them open cuz there was sooo much stuff in my box  Grin

posties with my name  Grin

N-Needle Book (very fitting seeing as how it is my dear sweet meaghans fault that I am addicted to embroidery now! lol)

Here are my super-spoilage swap goodies from Quaggy!

K = Owl keychain (prominently featuring my favorite color blue and I love owls)

A = Artistically decorated letter K, perfect for my craft...er, guest room Smiley

R = Red retro kitchen towel, so cute and I love the cherry applique using the yo-yos and buttons

E = "Empty" box to ship all of my extras in! Seriously, it is decorated with paint and paint chips in blue (of course) and filled with an assortment of crafty goodies and candies to spell out my name. My husband claimed majority shares of the Rolos and Now n' Laters Smiley

N = New monkey pillow for Liam (my 2.5-year-old)! My son loves all things monkey. Plus, I was in a Mommy/Toddler swap last year and got a mini-blankie for my son that uses some of this very same fabric. He saw it, squealed, "monkeys!" and hugged it. Big hit Quaggy! Oh, and one side has a monkey-head silhouette made from chalkboard fabric.

You should all petition to get Quaggy in the next round Smiley I hope she likes my package half as much as I like mine!

Spoiled doesn't even nearly cover how I feel just now.  I can just say that if you're ever in a swap with jadore-le-rose, cross your fingers that you get her 'cos she's AMAZING!   Grin


Cupcake fairy box, containg a cameo necklace and a fabric covered necklace

Handy drawstring bag

Reversable bunting

Instuments of sewing pincushion

Stripey handle bag

I couldn't be happier with this swap and it actually the only time I've ever in my life considered using my "Sunday Name" so I could I could have wangled more items...I've LOVED this.   Grin

I am feeling totally spoiled by my swap partner Mary, aka angelofmusic!  She really outdid herself! 

First of all, she wrapped everything in pretty paper and ribbons with stickers for each letter of my name (she even included the "G" since I go by Lori G!).  She also included a bunch of yarn and the biggest knitting needles I have ever seen.

PLUS she spelled my name a second time in CANDY!  L is for lemon drops (they are sugar free, which is perfect for my pre-diabetic husband), O is for orange slices, R is for Razzles (first it's candy, then it's gum!), I is for Icebreakers Mints, and G is for GIANT lollipop!  My son has already claimed it for himself, but he's gonna have to pry it away from me.  Smiley

Here's a pic of my son opening one of the packages:

L is for LITTLE Green Scrubbie -- crocheted out of cotton yarn and recycled plastic bags for the scrubbie part.  Ingenious!

(pic shows cards, magnets and the scrubbie)

O is for OLD-Fashioned Dishcloths -- so pretty!

R is for REALLY Scary Monster Tote for my son -- the cutest thing ever!!  The puzzle piece fabric is so adorable, and the mouth has slots for crayons (and the crayons stick out like sharp teeth!).  She also filled it with a couple of coloring books.

I is for ITTY-Bitty Magnets to add to my ever-growing magnet collection -- with cute things like frying pans and Legos.  Love them!

G is for GIFT Cards -- beautifully decorated with flowers.  Gorgeous and handy!

I love everything so much!  I only hope angelofmusic is not disappointed by my package.  I was encouraged when I saw her return address label:

So I know I was on the right track.  Wink

glad you are back, gamemom!
LOL on your dtr teasing you about the swap pkg waiting on the table  Smiley

Thanks, I'm going to have to get myself a laptop because being away from Craftster for days at a time is simply not okay.

And as for the daughter... she'll get hers... eventually Wink

As promised, here are the pics of the wonderful spell-my-name goodies I rec'd from Jessysihk.  

My name is Teresa:

T :  A perfect Tote for my knitting works in progress.  I needed this so badly, and what a great bonus that its just too cute.  It also has a pocket inside!  One of my favorite things about this bag is that it matches my living room furniture perfectly so I don't feel as if I need to hide it in the closet when I'm not working on my project.

e : Embroidered Wall Art in one of my absolute favorite themes... owls!  This is simply gorgeous in real life.  I wish you could see it.  the textures are amazing too, the background fabric is kind of suedey.

r : Really Cute Stitch Markers.  These are made of poly clay and are so adorable.  They represent another favorite of mine... bees!

e : Earrings!  And not just any earrings, I got sushi earrings!

I couldn't manage to get a decent photo of my earrings.  I only took about 30 photos before giving up.  Hopefully, Jessy can post a better one because they are wonderful.

Next Up, s : A Stitch Marker Wallet!  This is such a great idea and its so cute.  You'll notice it matches my tote.  The blanket stitch on this is absolutely perfect!

a : A very pretty Artsy Tin.  One can never have too many boxes, tins, and assorted containers and I love this one.

Wait, there's more!  She also sent these extras:

Thank you so much Jessy!  I love each and every thing.  I hope we're partners in another swap some day.

Hi Everyone.  I asked Crystal to post pics for me of the wonderful package she sent as i have been on bed rest for quite some time now... I am happy to say that although my recovery has been slow - everyday i get to spend more and more time out of bed!  I wanted to post pics of everything Crystal sent and comment on those items:

Day of the Dead IPOD cozy... so beautiful!  Love it love it love it!

check out my beautiful necklace!  i wore it yesterday when the family came by for a visit and all my nieces loved it! 

I collect picture frames - and this is now my favorite!  I plan on putting a pic of my great grandma and grandma (now in heaven)... the quote is beautiful!  it reads "The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity"

Cute Magnets, these are being put away till the little guy understands they dont belong in his mouth - but i love the bright cheery colors!

Yummy Candy - as you can see the hubby wasted no time getting into the goodies... we loved seeing the way things are packaged in Canada.

and there was a cute orange flower pen, but my son took that one over and i have yet to find it. 

Crystal, thanks for the awesome swap and for being so understanding about my injuries.  You should be receiving any day now, as my husband sent it out a few days after yours was sent!

Karen, you did an awesome job organizing and also just wanna say thanks for your patience with me! 

Everyones work has been fabulous!  Thanks for reading!

As always, this was an amazing swap.  I haven't gotten around to posting because I've still been under the weather, but here is what I got:

My Name in felt letters.

L - Lots of kits.  Check it all out.  I got a travel kit, medicine bottle pin cushion and pins, needlebook, chalk pringles can and chalk for writing notes, a tea wallet, punch needle kit, corn on the cob, peach, and bell pepper stuffie kits, bottle cap pin cushion kits, and water bottle drink stick holder kits.

E - Egg full of knitting and crocheting accessories.  I got a row counting bracelet, a counter, and stitch markers.

A - Angels

N - Nifty Buttons

N - Night scene postcards of Atlanta and a new item - a cool Georgia dog tag keychain.

And she also gave me a stuffed owl that she had gotten in another swap, but decided to give to me since I love owls and she thought I'd like it more. 

Thank you so much Koalascout.  I absolutely love all of it!  Thank you for spoiling me so. Smiley
