Okay...I finally got my butt in gear and took pictures of the beautiful package that MissDisney sent me.  She is the most awesome person to swap with!!!! 

First--I did get my letter, but didn't take a picture.

Second, here are my postcards--from my most favorite place in the whole wide world--Walt Disney World.  One postcard is for Italy in the World Showcase, the other is of Soarin' (or in DL, Soarin' Over CA).  I had to get the new dog, Wrigley in the picture:

Third, we have the beautiful scrapbook that she made.  I swear, this girl is amazing!!!  It has all kinds of pictures of her, places she's been, her family--it's awesome!:

Fourth--my stationary!!!  She made me a beautiful polymer clay pen, notecards, Mickey notecards, and beautiful envelopes for the notecards.  I wish I could have taken better pictures, but I really wanted to get this posted and the camera was about to die!:

Fifth--getting to know her!  Well, we also have the scrapbook (it tells me all about my MissDisney!), a plaque with an Irish blessing, a Mickey patch, a Maroon 5 CD (I'll be taking that to work to listen to!!!), and a scrapbooking magazine!!!:

And last, but not least, the six small things--MissDisney never does anything small!!!  We have a Hawaiian-themed bookmark, a beautiful crocheted hat (I'm so thrilled with this because every time I try to make one like this, I screw it up), a pretty jewelry box, a Mickey bracelet, and four stitch markers that represent all of the wonderful snacks that we get at WDW and DL--a frozen chocolate Mickey ice cream, a dole whip, a Mickey Krispie Treat, and a drink! 

Okay...this one is way more blurry than I thought it was--I'll have to take a better picture when the camera gets charged again! 

Thank you, MissDisney, for everything--it is truely an honor to know you and to get to swap with you!!!

Here is everything from CrochetAdikt:

We decided to do magic yarn balls so not all of my stuff has been exposed so far.  What I did get though is:  cool stationary, some of it is from her home town!, postcards from Michigan and from the Gerald Ford museum, sudoku, earrings, magnets, a cool eraser puzzle, a lovely box, coffee, hazelnut drink mix (in the nestlee container), a cd of pics, what i think are craisens, her favorite coffee mug w/the favorite tea, her favorite book, and a candle of both of our favorite sent lilac.  I feel so spoiled and i REALLY hope she likes her stuff as she unwinds her yarn ball.  I've already started unwinding mine Grin  And some closeups:

Beautiful local stationary.

Earrings.  Rachael said they remind her of perfume bottles, and she's right. I love them.  Sorry for the blur

The awesome coffee cup:

And missing from the big picture is her favorite coffee mate.  Raspberry chocolate.  I had it this am and it's sooo good!

ok just to clarify a little bit...b/c i'm bad and didn't write a letter explaining what everything was  Undecided so the stationery that coryjo said was from my hometown is actually from a place called beulah, michigan. its where my b/f's parents live and its stationery thats made from an old school printing press by gwen frostic. (she's dead now, but someone else took over the company) you might have heard of her, her stationery is renowned all over the world and it was also featured in the martha stewart magazine and the only store is the little tiny one in beulah.
the craisins are actually dried cherries straight from traverse city mich. the cherry capital. delish!
and lets see if i can find a better pic of the earrings...i know i got one around here somewhere...

there we go. hopefully soon i can unwrap my yarn ball. i'm trying to finish some other crochet first and then thats my next project. Smiley

 Grin  I'm so glad you liked everything!  I was starting to get a bit nervous after seeing all the awesome stuff in this swap!  Plus, I didn't think I could hold a candle to the amazing stuff you sent me!  Sorry for the tissue paper mess, it was all wrapped up nicely at one point, but the Post Office geniuses made me switch the box like 3 TIMES!!!  Tissue paper is not meant to undergo that kind of abuse, and come to think of it, neither am I!  I'm so happy everything got there safe and sound and was so very well received!  The ipod cozy was my favorite, too!  I made the same exact one in the reverse colors- it's from a Eunny Jang pattern I got online.  I now realize that EVERYTHING should have a lovely hand-knit cozy!  Hooray!  This swap is just too much fun!!!  Cheesy
