Oh, gosh, everyones packages are wonderful. It's like Christmas around here!  Cheesy

I received a wonderful package from PerfectlyBohemian on Thursday and was not able to post pictures until today. My apologies, PB!

Here is what met my eyes when I unloaded the box...
So many bright and colorful packages!

 An overall shot of what she sent and then some details....

Everything had a label and a great explanation of what each objects was about. She even sent something for MacGyver.
So very thoughtful and kind! (the Gardetto's and the bottle opener were addressed to him)
The bottle opener is the favor that was given at PB's wedding. Her hubby is a fab fan of home brew and so is mine, so it was perfect!

She hand painted lovely small pictures of her kitties and turned them into magnets. They are really adorable! PerfectlyBohemian
is a real renaissance woman...lots of skill in many areas!

She felted this absolutely gorgeous little sleeping bunny brooch complete with greenery and tiny little mushrooms.

Sewed and felted this beautiful sunflower brooch (her favorite flower)......

Transformed a sweet little doll into an enchanted forest being......

And burned this beautiful honey bee and comb on a truly lovely wooden spoon.

PerfectlyBohemian sent her favorite snacks, including some delish chocolate, crunchy seaweed wafers, Gardettos (for MacGyver) and some yummy coffee!
At lastly, some great books..she and I both share a love of books.

After opening the bounty PB sent, I learned that we have so many interests in common. So far, it's been really wonderful sharing with you!
Thank you so very much!

My partner received last week so I am posting pics of what I sent. We both said we like to spoil our partners so I may have gone a little overboard  Grin

I love paper of all types so I sent an assortment:

along with the love of paper is the paper crafting.
so I made notecards

and quilled snowflake ornaments in a small box - because I also collect boxes

my favorite magazine

local foods

I love these hairties.  I first got some last year in the make a friend swap from LindyV.  I wear them all the time and then had to make a bunch to give to friends.

I love and have cats so I made a cat stamp

I enjoy making abstract ink doodles

crocheted face cloths

and I forgot to take a pic of my favorite tea with the owl mug I painted Sad

Here is my wonderful package from Cackle! She really spoiled me with so many amazing supplies. I better get to it and figure out what I'm going to make. I see lots of amazing shrine potential Wink

Her package was definitely heavier than mine! I love all the baker's twine and pretty note cards she used! Smiley

Instead of doing straight up categories, Cackle used a more "stream of thought" method to this package. The first lot of packages that I opened revealed two books to represent Cackle's love for books and libraries, a DVD of the Princess Bride (great movie!) because she watches movies during crafty time, tea and an amazing multi-purpose tea spoon that I'll be putting to good use (It measures, scoops, and holds tea bags! Plus it looks like a garden shovel with a bird and flowers), an ATC storage box full of more supplies, with a tin inside that was full of even more supplies! These are the neatest ephemera ever!

I sorted through all the unwrapped supplies and found some amazing wood and chipboard shrine and bird house frames, amazing vintage-y papers, and stamp ink. It's all so awesome! I really love Cackle's favorite types of craft and art supplies!

One of the packages contained a Harney & Sons tea tin with a beautiful polymer clay, fairy garden trinket box. It is the prettiest thing ever, and I already put it in my new china cabinet with all my other lovely things of that sort. I laughed at seeing the tea tin because I use H&S tea tins for pencil holders at work Smiley

The last bundle of items I opened had a CD that Cackle recorded a few years ago (she is a great singer!!), French soap that is safe for sensitive skin, a pack of nice smelling candles that she likes to burn, and an ornament for my garden because she loves gardens - I'll be putting this in my herb and veggie garden in the morning! (the sunflower is my favorite flower, so double score!)

This was an awesome package! I can't wait for the next round Smiley

I came home Wednesday to a large pink box on my doorstep from adrienne_bowers Smiley

Inside the box:

Adrienne loves surprise balls so she made me one:

It was fun to open - my first "surprise"

All my surprises:

The rest of the box: includes her favorite candy - Swedish Fish, Hershey's cocoa as she lives near Hershey, Penn, vintage Christmas decor, Her fav book and movie, an altered Marie Antoinette matchbox stuffed with supplies, a crocheted cupcake, a felt "poop" and I forgot what the 3rd thing (multi-colored ball above the cupcake) was called and I left the note at home.  (I'll have to look it up later) and vintage supplies in the box. I really like the fall colored boxes.

A close up of the matchbox:

I received from stellato_escuro and was waiting for her to received before I posted, but her package is apparently on a slow boat..train...something...so I'm going to post her amazing package to me. Smiley

First, the entire package.  You can see the Kit Part 1 wth Jonny Quest on it!

The entire Kit is a journaling kit! So many gorgeous papers, a binder, lots of tapes, pens, glue, and doodads galore.  It's the most beautiful kit I've ever seen!  AND she didn't even know Jonny Quest was a favorite of mine!  

The medium item is a gorgeous wool scarf, the color is perfect for me and it's so snuggly!  I'm seriously bad at selfies, so don't mind me.lol

Then extra #1 - my fave brand of nail polish and they are bright and cheerful!

Then extra #2 - the most cunning little pouch, I have no idea of what it is made of...maybe some kind of waterproof fabric? Totally cute! And a sweet little notebook - I have notebooks everywhere, I adore them!

Thank you so much, this was the most amazing package ever!

Package number 2 from my awesome partner, PerfectlyBohemian!

Here is what everything was wrapped in. Love the twine and the brightly patterned tape.

Next is a fantastic collection of vintage reproduction Halloween cards! I love these cards.

She sent me a sweet little mermaid...PB loves mermaids and I'm not sure if she knows how much I love them too!
A beautiful Thanksgiving card (her fav holiday) and a really fun game called Story Cubes, which MacGyver and I played last night in between trick-or-treaters.
We had fun!

And last but in no way least, PB sent me this wonderful trio of witches and cauldron. I can't tell you how much I loves these!
PerfectlyBohemian hand felted each of them and the cauldron. The awesome witchy hair is mohair. They're truly too cute for words.
But I'll say a few more....

These ladies were inspired by a pin on my Pinterest, but I have to say, the first thing I thought of was the witches in Terry Pratchett's "Wyrd Sisters" a book I love and laugh out loud at
every time I read it. I think PB has mind reading super powers.......

Thank you so much PerfectlyBohemian!

Loved my first package from ginger peachy Smiley

First -- everything was in pretty purple tissue paper with black & white chevron washi tape.  A gorgeous peacock card explained everything she sent.  Candy bar & stickers...

Adorable mini terrarium with a teeny weeny hippo in it! Smiley sugar scrub that smells exactly like a cake...purple ink...and sunflower seeds -- and I love sunflowers!!

Halloween socks, homemade lip balm that smells divine, fabulous glass pendant (something I don't think I'll ever do myself), some purple agate, a lovely fall scented candle, and the rest of the washi tape!  Did I ever tell you how much I love washi tape??!!

I think that next time I need to package my stuff a little prettier!

Oh, no worries Sevs! I only had ribbon on mine because I had time to kill while my little guy napped. You may not get so lucky next time. Wink

Well, I got my stuff on Friday. But then I got hit with a lovely super head cold and am just now propping myself up on the computer. It's high time I share the super goodness!

All my packages, just waiting to be ripped open.

The two breakables made it here in perfect shape! One of the craft-its, an embellished picture frame with a sheet of school paper inside, perfect for making lists. I am going to use it in my craft room for making notes as I work. The mug says "Doozers at Work". I love it! I remember watching Fraggle Rock when I was little. And I can always use another mug.

Sevs also sent me a pair of fall-themed towels and a lightweight scarf. Both are already into rotation at my house. Her and I both LOVE scarves...all kinds, all weights, all seasons. Do I smell something I can craft for her?? She also sent two movies, Blade and Blade 2, as well as a notebook (I can always use more) and a novel, The Fault in Our Stars. I have heard a lot about it lately, so I am excited to read it.

I also got a wonderful selection of beauty goodies. Sevs sells Jamberry, so she sent along a catalog, some samples and a full-size set. She also included a trio of nail polishes. I think I may save the full jamberry set and do a nail spa day at home with my four-year-old daughter. She will be thrilled if we have matching nails. The other craft it item was a whole mess of lip balms. I love, love, love lip balm, so this is right up my alley. One of the blues instantly went in my pocket and I used it all day. Again, a few of those will be going to my daughter. We are doing a super tight budget for Christmas, so I think one of each flavor may become stocking stuffers for her.

This package was wonderful! I am so glad I joined this swap. Now I better get my butt in gear for the next package!

I finally remembered during daylight hours to take better photos of my stuff from Eclectic Dreamer!

Here are the cute hearts (I think I'm going to turn them into magnets to attach to the inside of my metal front door when I get back to my Osaka apartment):

Gorgeous leather notebook!  I have so many ideas for this that I can't decide!  Quote book, list of goals, crafting idea notebook... I'll have to think about it!  And I still love how the super soft cover feels under my fingers.

Wool crafts!  Three lovely shades of homemade(!) yarn and some felted soap. Smiley

Last, the wrap bracelet with charms, and the chain link keychain, both in some of my favorite colors. Smiley  I need to remember to put those charms on the bracelet and actually wear it!  It'll go with a lot of my stuff. XD

Everyone's packages are amazing. I can't wait to see what you all come up with for the final package. While looking through the photos I realized I forgot to post pics of package 1. I got package 2 today from Helena Puck so I am going to post pics here for both packages.

For package 1 she sent me a super full package of all kinds of goodies. We are both teachers so she sent me some teachery stickers that I plan to use for my students. I got a little porcelain bird to add to my collection. She made me a beaded headband and sent a tiny gumball machine. Based on my etsy site she sent me some vintage ET fabric. She loves to cook and cross stitch so I got a cookbook and 2 cross stitch books with thread. She also sent me some of her extra Smurfs and an adorable Ursula hoopla.

For package 2 she made me a super cute Ariel pouch and included a Beeker cross stitch pattern of her own as well as thread, fabric and a needle for my DIY kit. Also included were 3 vintage Disney glasses from McDonald's. I love them so much that I already have a collection of them that I use every day. I was so excited to see more.

Cackle has spent this whole swap spoiling me sooo much. Look at all the supplies I got Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I was surprised by a huge light blue box at the door when I got home a few nights ago. I opened to find two slightly smaller boxes inside. The lovely butterfly box has a neat shadowbox effect on the lid and feels really sturdy. I can't decide if I want to keep it to myself or use it as a gift box Tongue (I'm probably going to keep it all to myself Grin). The butterfly box was full of lots of soft wool roving and an awesome felting tool! I've been wanting one of those forever now! How exciting!

The plastic bin was filled to the brim with pre-felted wool balls in all sorts of amazing colors, pre-cut upcycled sweater flowers that I'm already planning to use in some Christmas gifts, some beautiful paper flowers that I'll have to find some awesome mixed media projects to incorporate them in to, and a brochure with lots of ideas for the wool balls.

I can't wait to use everything. I'm still so amazed by the stuff I got for the first package Cheesy

My preferred camera is still broken, so I apologize for the badly lit photos Tongue I was waiting for a sunny afternoon, but apparently all we get is overcast skies this weekend...

Thanks a ton!  Smiley
