crappiefisher - that is a way awesome package! looks like you got a lot of different coffees and teas in your package - which sounds like suits you really nicely!

I think it is funny that you sent each other similar items - guess the swap org knew what she was doing when she paired the two of you up!


feel I've been sick forever - still tired and RUNNING LATE!!!


Give me a bag of tumbled stones and I will play for hours! Wink

Brightest Blessings!
OMG! I should So make that

Ooooo very nice stuff! I love the tea envelope, I don't drink tea but use equal so it's handy for those packets as well. The cards are very nice as well, they do look store bought in the pics they are so immaculately done!

Now it's my turn to post the lovely items I received from crappiefisher!

This was crappiefisher's first swap and she did an AMAZING job!! She was really tuned in to my likes/dislikes and the end result was fabulous.

As I opened the box I was met with a beautifully-made messenger bag with a picture featuring my beverage of choice, cafe con leche. This is perfect for carting around my school books!
The inside has floral print, and the whole item is extremely well made. Denise, you are a much better seamstress than myself Tongue Please be assured that is my favorite part of the package!!

Here is an adorable little book made out of recycled coffee cup sleeves! Crappiefisher told me that she found this kit on etsy. It has inspired me to make my own book Cheesy

She also made me a picture frame in a rich, chocolately color. It's decorated with coffee beans and has the phrase, "A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well-spent" in 4 different languages. This is perfect for me because I'm a Spanish major, linguistics minor who's also studying Italian (hence a word nerd!):

We were on a similar wavelength considering we both made each other boxes! My coffees can now rest easy inside a box decorated with the word for "coffee" in several languages:

In addition to all of these homemade goodies, my partner also included coffee-themed stitch markers, 3 types of coffee ("Foglifter," Costa Rican, and Hazelnut), after-coffee cinnamon breath mints, and chocolate-covered espresso beans (that have already been sampled, yuuuum)!

Here are some of the store-bought goodies along with funky, humorous coasters and a coffee sleeve. All of my suitemates and I will put these to good use!


I hope you don't mind but I wanted to post another picture of the tea box I sent you, I was so proud of it!!

And here are a close-up of the cards. I can't believe you thought that they were store-bought!
(I take that as a compliment) Perhaps I can sell some on etsy!

Thank you SO much, crappiefisher! You did a wonderful job Cheesy

Thanks so much for posting the top of the box that you made me. My pics kept coming out with too much flash and the little tiles were washed out.  It is adorable and so nice!

gush! I'm so happy I did this swap!

That coffee sleeve book is such a cool idea, and the top of that box is so pretty.

What great packages  Cheesy

I received from Samann1121 today YAY!

this is everything she sent.
Close ups....

an adorable coin purse shaped like a coffee mug in beautiful fabrics with a chocolate brown lining. I stuck it in my school bag with all my little post it tabs in it now!

4 hand made note cards where she scanned the embroidery image that she made me and placed them on cards. Too Cute! I know just who to send a note on these to as well!

Here is the embroidery she made with my personal little mantra on it! And in action as I have already found a plce of honor to hang it. Now when anyone comes to bug me at my desk they will see that first and not even have to bother asking if I need anything!

Then there were the 2 bags of coffee which one is suppose to taste like orange mmm I'll have to give it a try! I just love the thought of alcohol named coffee, then I can claim to be getting liquored up without the side effects Wink

awesome stuff being made here, I am very excited!

Less than 1 week to send out!  Make sure you're PMing your respective organizer and your partners about sending status!  I haven't heard too much on my side, so I assume every one is ok.
