I received from lylmousy today!  :3  Here is my loot!

The jar looks like a little goldfish bowl- I love it!

Picture of everything that was in the jar.  Lots of goodies!

I like these beads, they remind me of fish.  Cheesy

A close-up of all the beads n' things.

I got lots of neat stuff- I can't wait to put it to good use!  Thank you, lylmousy!  I hope you like mine- you should get it by tomorrow, I think, since I sent a day after you.

Ohhh, I like the rope/string you got!!!   Cheesy

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I got my jar from noxluff today!

The wonderful jar.

I love the Richard Scarry pictures on the jar.

look at the wonderful candy

all the wonderful beads

more beads, and some earring hooks

I am going to have so much fun with these. I can't wait to start.  Thank you noxluff for making my first swap so fun!

Only exceptionally rational people can afford to be absurd.

omg i totally have swappers anxiety.
i got my package from instantkarma today and it is FAMAZING (you know.. effin' amazing)!!
i will be posting pictures tomorrow, i promise!! my memory card is acting all goofy right now.
i got the most awesome beads, stone beads, shrinky dinks, charms, nifty recycled beads, glass beads, wood beads, shell beads, alphabet beads...... tiny people in my jar!! not to mention the jar itself is FAMAZING (again with the word, i know).


I need to get rid of stuff!! i have soap kits, bath salt kits, lip balm kits, plain canvas tote bags, fabric paints, and other stuff i'm trying to clean out. It'd be cool to swap for yarn, but i'll give it away FREE! PM me if you're interested!!!

Hahah, the "tiny people in my jar" line makes me laugh. Cheesy I'm glad you liked everything I sent - I had a lot of fun getting things together to send to you, and decorating the jar that way is literally one of my crowning achievements.

I received from bunnyrabbit yesterday too - here are the pictures! Smiley Excuse any crappiness of pictures, by the way - I was going to get a new camera with my stimulus check, but then my tuition for college went up again...

Everything all together! We have a postcard from Iowa, the envelope that it was all sent in, her really really sweet card that she sent along, and the bottle. There are also project cards in the card! I thought that was awesome because I never really follow any rules/guidelines for making jewelry; maybe now that I have some cards I'll do things that are more advanced than "pick up bead, put it on wire, add an earring hook - yay! all done!". Cheesy

All of the beads spilled on my floor. I was surprised at how many beads that little bottle could hold!

The huge leaf bead that was tied around the bottle. I love this. I loved it even more once I took it out in the light and realized that there are gold sparkles in it too. Smiley

Everything divided up - it was hard to get a good picture. I will point out that some of the red beads are these awesome swirly faux shell beads that I adore. I was actually in a bead store earlier today looking at shell beads!

Last but not least, my favorite beads of the bunch. They're wooden and have pretty little flowery (I think....I can't remember, they're kind of far away right now) designs on them. Love them. Smiley There are also some turquoise-looking beds in there too that I like, but I didn't take a picture of them because I figure that everyone knows what turquoise looks like.

Thank you so much, bunnyrabbit! I really liked everything!


On a swapping hiatus due to college...

When I received my package from bkrenning4, I nearly fainted from the weight! She spoiled me rotten, and I LOOOVE everything! Take a look at my loot-

Lots of lovely lampwork beads, tons of fun metal charms and findings, 4 spools of fun wire, and loads and loads of other beads! My favorites are the glass leaf pendants and all of the stone beads!

Thank you so much, Kristine! I really love everything Smiley
