I received from Adetten, YAY!!! I LOVE my box and extras!

First, ribbon tied:

Top and bottom of the box:

Look how stuffed it is!

Here is everything spread out:

and the extras, I'll let Adetten tell you about them:

Thank you Adetten!

As far as seeing my other two boxes, two of my partners fell on really hard, bad times, and I don't want to give them extra pressure.

I can tell you about them, but I didn't take pictures. Adetten is a movie buff, black & white ones. She said that The Ghost & Mrs. Muir was one of her favorites. So I found an old movie poster and then created a victorian/nautical theme to go with it. I stuffed some of the same stuff as squirrelgirl's box, but also added some tape transfers of "horrorcore", and other horror movies.

icrispyi I made with a vintage cat theme and stuffed with cat stuff.

Okay, see you all in Round 2, it is filling up, and we are only taking 48 partners, so if you want to get in . . . .

Here is my box from Adetten. It was originally all wrapped in the red lace (which I REALLY like!) inside it was filled with gorgeous beads! I love all the wire wrapped ones. I'm going to make some earrings out of those. Adetten was also way too sweet and included a ball of fuzzy yarn for me to make another cat sweater with! Thanks Adetten! It was a joy to swap with you!

I'm glad you both liked it. The lace is 100% cotton by the way and hand died. I haven't really washed it yet so I'm not suer if its going to bleed any more. And the buddah statue is a good luck charm I've had for the past couple of years, its hand carved and was given to me by a friends mother. The luck wasn't really working for me anymore so hopefully it will for sewknitter.

Today, I got a second box from Alana1223! It turns out that the one that I posted earlier, which I thought was the second box she sent, was actually the first box she sent. I was so excited, I never even looked at the postmark (3 weeks to get here- straight up the east coast!).

And, the second box is just as awesome as the first one was!

Here it is wrapped in ribbon, and unwrapped. I love the decoration on this, especially the striped paper!


The whole lot...beads, jewelry findings, awesome charms, stickers and paper doo-dads, tags, mini playing cards...awesome!

A close-up of an awesome stamp- this will be turned into a pendant as soon as I learn how to solder!

And a close up of some of the charms: a hedgehog, a llama (the llamas from the 2 boxes will be earrings), cherries and leaves (destiny= earrings!), Ger rune (harvest, growth, rebirth), a fish skeleton, a dog bone, a goddess (seen it before but don't know it), a pink pig, a Thumper pic (the square one) and a sushi charm!

I love everything Alana and I'll be sending you along another 'something' soon!

This swap was so much fun and I had GREAT swap partners! Thanks Alana1223 and Modus Operandi- you rock!


The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.
