You want to know my own swap record for speedy receiving? Racehorse picked me in an ongoing swap; crafted it the next day; and her dad hand-delivered it the following day.   Shocked And it was a nice craft too, it's not like it was a rushed job! Pretty wild. But for speedy post office action, I think moonlightbliss just set the bar pretty high! I'm sure it would take Canada Post two days to lick a stamp.  Roll Eyes

Have you hugged your mod today? Smiley

Go ahead and post pictures if you can MoonLightbliss! My computer ended up dying and it is getting a new install of Windows XP at the moment, so pictures are taking longer than I anticipated.

Everything was wrapped up beautifully - felt like Christmas.

I recieved two (much needed) iPod covers. One is blue felt with sequins, the other is dark purple with a heart applique. Using the purple one right now.  Cheesy

Three bars of soap - 1 chocolate, 1 oatmeal, 1 chamomile. They smell wonderful. Hard to decide which to use first...

Two knitted stuffies - one fish, one mouse. My 10 year old brother watched me open the package, he wasn't thrilled with anything until these.. and I haven't seen them since. Boys!

And a little bag filled with various jewelry. A wire wrapped necklace, a set of earrings - not sure what they are made of, two bracelets - one is buttons and the same type of stuff as the earrings (put that one on immediately), the other is circle/oval glass beads.

Even the note she wrote to me was on handmade paper!

Definitely a fantastic first swap experience - thank you Ashley!

So I got my package from kgo6050, erm, I think it hit my porch thursday, but I was out of town- my younger sister rescued it and I finaly got it this morning. 8-)
My little munchkin is turning into a minja, I set the scissors on the floor to grab the camera, and what does she do- she grabs the scissors.  Roll Eyes I have a pict of that because it's hysterical, but I will have to post it later, I need to photoshop out my address.  Tongue
Behold, my booty!

There is a pirate pillow, some great black and purple stationary, two hand knit washcloths (which may go in the bathroom, I can't bring myself to rub those over my dishes!), an knit bunny for said tiny, and some fum in fun flavors. Mellon, anyone?
Tiny loves the bunny, I caught her swinging it around by its ears. I wish I got a pic of it. And the pillow is perfect.

This has been the GREATEST swap. I think it's a great idea, and boy howdy, if we do it again, I'M IN!!
Thanks, girl!
