Yeah! I'm glad you liked everything! No cameras that I know of, just luck I guess.  Cheesy

I was on the moon at the time.....with Steve.

These packages are amazing! I love all the different stuff! That rabbit was way cool, and I'm totally jealous of the decoupage skills displayed. And that shrug is beautiful! Love the earring holder, and of course who doesn't need another journal? And the ornament for the room is way cool!

I think I could just base my entire wists off of this swap! Smiley

This pix has the envelope my letter came in (handmade), a keychain made from a spool that she carved with her hubbys drummel, the CUTEST lil star coin purse, an indian beadwork how to book and beads, the letter, and the postcard she forgot last round.

The second package I recieved from Calluna is GORGEOUS and Amelie themed!
It's super detailed and all about love and gnomes and dogs with cones and birds with pearls and.. and..
Since there's so much to it, I compiled a photo collage of what came in the box! Even the fabric scraps it was packed in are fantastic! (That one is so from my wists!)
here's what I got:
-poly clay dog-in-cone and bird-in-pearls magnets
-poly clay gnome picture frame!
-deconstructed camera filled with goodies! (Including: the suicidal fish! Lady Di! Artichoke stamp, marble, key, wine glass tags, leaf of knowledge)
-reclaimed, love themed journal for "doodles, clippings and assorted oddities"
(Every page of this journal has wonderful cut outs about love and dreams and beautiful things! Smiley)


Thank you Calluna!
You blow me away!

This swap package gave me the excuse to a) buy the Amelie DVD, and b) watch it over and over and over again! With subtitles, without subtitles, slow-motion, with and without sound, special features...My Amelie obsession is several years late, since I didn't see it til last year.  Smiley I had so much fun compiling and crafting this package!

And quick as that, I got my own package from Fabric! It's very cool stuff, and I wish I were feeling better so I could adequately show how happy I am.

Here is the group shot:

...minus most of the tasty vegan cookies she sent me--those promptly became dinner!
Under everything is fabric for a furoshiki! I just learned about them through this swap (I think it was The Jenya?), put the website on my wists, and now I've got this really nice fabric for doing my own! And it's not only green environmentally, it's green in color!  Or maybe I should've said it the other way around. Cheesy There's also a cloth pad with removable liner, which has tools and plumbing fixtures as the print, very appropriately.

In the foreground you'll see the crocheted hat and fingerless mittens set, which are so nice and have so many beautiful kinds of yarn. Here's action shots, the first one carrying everything in the furoshiki (the bag-lady shot):

She made me a bunch of ATCs and other small art pieces, one of which toward the back utilizes pink taxidermy eyes! And these Dia de los Muertos skulls are too cool for words:

Here's a better shot of the things that didn't get their own photo:

I got some sets of strung beads (one set from China, no less!) and purple brads in addition to all the crafted goodies...All will be well-loved!

Thank you so much, Fabric! I love it all!

Everyone's second packages have been awsome!  Such variety!  Here's mine... I received today and have been playing with everything ever since!  Bugaboo1 has spoiled me AGAIN with loads of wisty goodness.  My apologies for the big pics, I got excited!

The whole lot, and please excuse my washing in the background!

Fantastic Nolita knockoff that I greatly desired

A learn to crachet kit with hooks and a case and cotton and a book and the cleverest cards with instructions and actual crachet on them!

A knitting needle roll, I've needed one of these for the longest time, I started putting my needles in already, now I have to hunt around the house and find the rest of them.

And a mug and mug cozy, crochet ruffled purse that I just love, kool aid (I had so much fun dying with my first lot!) and shrinky dinks (Yay!)

And look!  It all fits in the bag, seriously this bag is huge!

And Yay! everything in my favourite colour!  Thanks again Bug, you're the best swap partner in history!

OMG! I should So make that
