I LOVE Bettie Page! And I'm glad I'm not the only one that sent a Bust magazine. It's funny, I met Eve the other day at work and I was thinking that she was on a Bust magazine, I just couldn't remember that it was the latest issue, even though I bought 3 copies of it (one for me, one for my sister-in-law, and one for my swap partner).

Here's the loot! I received on Monday but I didn't have my camera... anyway, on with the show!!

Here are some photos of squirrlgirl and her husband. She also sent some of her cat and a b&w photo she took for school.

for stationary she made me 3 mini pin-up cards and an altoid tin to put them in, a pack of pirates of the Caribbean pencils, pirate monkey stationary, and a Hello Kitty planner that is not pictured. Also, another of her favorite things is chocolate but since I am allergic to it she compremised and sent me some yummy chocolate peach spray.

next up are some of her favorite things. Pop corn with nutritional yeast and flaxseed oil, and sushi wraps. We both love sushi.

The letter she wrote me is on Bettie Page stationary! As I said before, I love her. Also she sent the B-52's (awesome!), the cutest unicorn earrings, two little shrines that I could not get pictures of  Angry with Frida Kalo (one of my favorite painters!) and Diane Arbus (one of my favorite photographers!), some amazing zombie hands and feet stitch markers.

Here's a close up of the earrings. I wore them to work and got so many compliments and people were amazed that someone made them for me.

Thank you for everything Allie!!!

I've got love for the chat hoes...anyone else need not apply!

WONDERFUL packages so far!! and my dear friend did not disappoint (there is no way she could)

DisneyFan, you rock so hard

first off, 6 *small* items....yea, small my tush, but then again, im not great at small either

she sent me some slippers in my very first swap, and i wore them like i would die without them..and she made sure i will have a spare! i LOVE the mickey slippers hun, i put them on, and i think they are healing me! haha...being sick means im cold all the time, these are really helping...speaking of keeping me warm: the CUTEST pj's ever...you outdid yourself. i live in my pj's, and these are so comfortable...it fits my lifestyle ideally! ooh and the tasty lip balm...i needed it soo bad with my constant coughing and chapped lips when i wake up, but being sick, i cant make any for myself...the bubblegum was especially delicious!
not pictured, the most adorable bookmark to go with that book...it is sitting snugly in one of my Disney travel guides

now onto the 5 *show and tell* items...

first, i thought half the items were other things when i first opened the package because they were *so* me...lol i love the notebook and notecards, the Incredibles is one of my all-time favorite films, but i forget it like all the time...the cards, with the artsy feel...i can see why you love them...and the notebook, i have a plan for this my dear! but you will see soon enough....also, a DELICIOUS candy bar from the UK, mmmmm i didnt think i would like it, but one bite and im hooked! you sent me a CD, that is soo funny and ironic, but wonderful, and i DO love her single, "i just wanna be mad",i have for years and years! and last but not least, *The Pleasure Master* lmao, i gotta be honest, not something i would have thought you were a fan of...but i trust your word, and i intend on diving into it just for you!

four? stationery items...all handsomly packaged in a Disney Vacation Club folder (i love it toooo)

where to start? well i guess with *how* i would write on stuff....i love specialty pens and pencils, i collect them! the stampers are so awesome, and so perfect for my collection...i cant tell you how big a smile i had when i saw them...and it got even bigger when i saw the sticky notes, note paper, and the little journal...as you can see, i am using the notepad as we speak (we needed grocery stuff hehe)! finally, she included some Belle stickers...i use these for everything, and i just ran out, so woo now i have a new supply...awesome! oh, and it makes me crabby that there arent more *Belle* exclusive items too...

3 pictures...she asked me not to post pictures of her family (for privacy)

2 post cards:
i love that they are from CO, Jeremy finally convinced me to come up there, so hopefully we can work something out to meet!! these post cards definitely make it look enticing

and the letter, well i didnt take a picture of it, but i read it, thats how i knew what everything was!!

thank you again DisneyFan...this package really made my day

Yeah! Hubby quit whining long enough for me to get photos (ok he was sleeping)  But I have to share photos of the package that came on saturday from JessVict my fantastic partner Smiley  I tried really hard to get good photos so without further adeu and in no particular order lol

Photos (can you see how cute Jess is!)  and that awesome pic of a stingray is going on the wall in my office for sure

beautiful bracelet, I wish you could see the leaves better, it came apart at one of the jumprings, but I've fixed it since I took the photo

I think I messed this up getting it out of the box but it's cool!

shells and rocks from Lake Eerie (I collected rocks as a little girl so this really appealed to the little girl in my heart)

This amazing little beaded spider, she's so going somewhere that my husband has to see her frequently (he hates spiders and I like to make him shiver lol)

We both love Asian things, and this gong will come in SO HANDY when they are playing rockband in my livingroom (they being my family, the older crowd may get that reference lol, my daughter however didn't)

Postcards (We're both coke drinkers and the raccoon is actually a photo which is so cool!) I collect post cards so I love them all

stationery things

more stationery things (see the awesome soldier stickers)

Skulls are one of my most favorite things on earth and have been even since before they were popular lol, and she made this fantastic cloth the green is a great compliment to my favorite shade of green paint

And a wire photoframe with red, clear and black baubles.  Red and black are the colors of my livingroom so this will definitely find a spot on the shelf in here

There was also some trim she sent, she obsessively collects trims and fabrics much like myself but my son grabbed it and ran and tied up some of his sisters stuffed animals lol.  So I didn't want to show stuffie torture Wink  And I forgot she also sent a gardening magazine I may have to steal a few ideas out of it for my yard

Thank you Jess Cheesy
