Hi I got a lovely box filled with all kinds of goodies today from Denise M! I got a cute little vase thing filled with flowers and a little bunny sitting in the flowers. A really cool candle holder covered with shells and a beachy candle (it'll be like being at the beach everyday!), 3 cute magnets, 4 really pretty pairs of earrings (I cant wait to wear them), A neat book mark, and my favorite a stuffed bear (how'd you know i love bears?  Smiley ) Thank you soooo much!!!!!  Grin I'll post pics after i ask Denise if it's okay!

 Cheesy I received all my wunderful goodies the other day!
it was quite a joyful occasion since i was having a bad day that day.. but anyhoo, here is what i got:

a nice flowery journal. The outer cover looks to be made from recycled paper and bits o' yarn, and on the cover are nice vintage style red paper flowers and inside is smooth bright green paper. The top is held together by these rings. its so neat, i love it! It reminds me of those yummy journals i try to resist from buying all the time at B&N...

also in the package was a knitted pouch! yay! i love knitties!
the little knit pouch is blue and green stripey with funky cute bright blue and green small yarn stripeys. It has a really cute oriental style button to close.  this is tres' cute!!! i wish i knew how to knit!!  Right now the little knit pouch is a happy home for my cell ph.! i'm glad, i can now find my cellph.

And last but not least, i got some super glittery cute magnets...
2 - were yellow flowers (my fave colour flowers, how'd u kno?) these were lined in gold glitter... then the other 2 magnets were vintage style bluebirds (so cute 2!) lined in red glitter... Smiley

 Cheesy Great job J PANTS!!!! you did awesome!!
did you use resin in the magnets? or something else? that is so neat!
THanks so much! i loved it all!!! Another great Random Swap!!!

sewsudchic-I'm so glad you liked your packie!  It was funny, I started reading your post without really looking to see who it was posting, as I got through the description of the book, I started to think, That sounds like my book!  Then I saw it was your post and I was like, It is my book!  I was in such a hurry to mail the stuff that I forgot to take a picture, but you did such a great job of describing everything!

did you use resin in the magnets? or something else? that is so neat!

Here is a whole thread about bottlecap magnets!  enjoy!

Barbi sent me the coolest stuff!  It's not in front of me so I can't remember it all.  A really nice body shaped vase, some sushi earings (very cute), some orignal artwork in a great frame, Marmaduke marble thumbtacks (I really needed some more), a really cute skeleton necklace, a bracelet with homemade beads, a sushi figurine that broke in the mail but I can glue it back and I can't remember if that was everything or not.

Thanks!  My package is going to go out Monday.  "D

today i got my swap stuff from german chocolate.  so exciting!  i got an adorable pillow shaped like a muffin with little red pony beads sewn on-a strawberry muffin!  and two gel candles, one blue and one green.  now that i'm a student again, i  no longer have access to the digital camera i used to use at work.  boo-hoo!  i'll have to let all of my swap partners know that from now on. but i love my stuff and was so delighted for a package!  thanks german chocolate!
