And that was an easy one! I love playing with my magnetic poetry set I got for christmas, I should probably blog it and call it "The daily fridge" XD

that magnetic poem cracks me up! since i forgot to put in my little note, a few quirky notes on the things i sent:

the top of the pringles can is a votive holder! (though, flammability issues might occur...hehe)
the little penguin is a cat toy filled with catnip! (you mentioned you had a kitty!)
aand, the magnets will hopefully stick to your boyfriend's starcraft gaming computer!

i'm glad you received! happy winter!

Just one thing I should point out.
My friend had a teddy bear with magnets in it's hands. She put it infront of the computer monitor and it resulted in some horribly odd discolouration that her family wasn't able to get rid of - eventually they got a new one.
I don't really know if they're due to the strength of the magnet or the quality/type of monitor though, cause I know with some computers it's totally fine ^^

But wow! awesome can!

Not gonna lie. The magnetic poetry cracked me up. Should I be ashamed of myself? XD

Don't worry, the magnets are on the fridge a safe distance from the computers XD It is a bad idea to put magnets near any computer anything, but the fridge is fine XD

Wow, purpleone, great can! I particularly love those buttons!
As a huge snowflake lover, I'm in love with your snowflake ornaments, darkladymajesta. Cheesy

Since my camera had recently bitten the dust (pixels?) when I sent my can and stargazersewer hasn't posted pictures, Ma Rut suggested that I post a list of what I sent in my can (or what I remember, anyway!).

The outside of the can was Grinch themed, based on her love of the movie. I took the classic picture of him sneaking off with the tree. Since the picture left some space, I cut the picture into slanted strips and put red and green ribbon in the spaces. Surprisingly, it worked!

Two blocks of Sculpey
Various chocolates
Six (I think) hand-painted, button-embellished gift tags
A giant crocheted snowflake based on this pattern. Be not fooled by the tiny picture at the top. It was about a foot in diameter. I was equally surprised.
A crocheted wave scarf based off this pattern, minus the fringe. Somehow, I discovered (phew) that did fit in the can with some room left.
A pair of quilled snowflake earrings on hoops. I just made up the snowflake pattern for the quilling.

As for the can I received, be prepared to be in awe of the awesomeness of my angel, Irasema! I'm sorry I didn't get to post pictures until now (why does sharing a camera mean my brother and the girlfriend always get precedence??).

When I first opened my package...

It was wrapped in a stocking! After that, I had a sneaking suspicion Christmas was about to be happily extended. Smiley

My can! Isn't it cute? I love snowmen!

My loot! We have have FOUR ornaments--one with the name of the swap and my angel on the back, two sets of hanging ornaments (colorful bon-bons and icicles!), amazingly cute gift tags, a penguin craft kit, two winter wood blocks (I'm still deciding what to do with them), an oh-snow pretty bracelet, adorable light earrings, and a wonderfully dorm-sized JOY banner. (Apologies for the sideways photos.)

A close-up of the jewelry. Is Irasema amazing, or what? THANK YOU so much!
