I received from Nezbut today!!!!  I was AMAZED with the package and her skill.  I will try to post pics by  Friday, but in the meanwhile.....The can was wrapped in fabric and handpainted with a tree, a fairy, and a bee (my daughter's room is in the process of being turned into a woodland fairy theme, and I think I'm going to put her socks in this on the dresser).  There was also a mini poppet for my daughter.....she handpainted the eyes with non-toxic paint instead of using beads so they wouldn't be a choking hazard, and made the gorgeous but fragile wings removable with velcro- which is an awesome idea b/c I can take them off if I'm going to let my daughter hold it and then put them back on when I put it up for display.  The wings came in a beautiful protective carrying case that matched the bag the poppet came in.  The poppet was wearing a very pretty woodsy dress, and has 3 more skirts to change into.  For my son (who turned 5 yesterday) she sent a tiny felted gnome, an ivysaour, and an oddish (two stuffed felt pokemon), which he LOVES.  AND there was a pair of very cool red and black bow/barrettes with a heart button in the middle of each for me, as well as a very nice letter.  I was so happy.......now I can only hope that she will be as happy with what I send her, as I am much newer to crafting and not nearly as skilled.....  Embarrassed

I received an awesome package from DragonEyze today!  I always have goo intentions of taking pictures as I open my swap packages.  It never happens - I get too impatient and open the package as soon as I pick it up!

At any rate, here is the group shot.

When I first pulled out the can, I must admit, my first thought was that it was a little boring. I mean, all black? come on!  And then, I realized it was actually a CHALKBOARD!  Yes, that's right, chalkboard, how cool is that?!?

There are also two small chalkboard pots (too cute!) with a packet of herbs seeds to make my very own herb garden. (Just need some potting soil, and then they shall be lined up on my windowsill!) also a cute keychain, and some very yummy star soaps, and pretty ribbon, and a fun pencil. oh, and smarties. I almost forgot them, b/c my roommate stole them as soon as I opened the box!

These votive holders were also in the can (how did you fit all of this, DragonEyze? I was quite amazed at your packing abilities!) and were just so pretty i thought they deserved their own picture.

Thanks again, DragonEyze!

Wow! So many fun, creative ideas! I especially like the Scrabble name plate, the pop tab headband and the black board pringles can...fabulous.

I'm glad you like it!!

I received my package, but am unable to post pictures.

I received a CROCHED BATH SCRUBBIE! So cool. Not being a weaver/crocheter/knitter I didn't know that could be done. I love it.

Paint sample wallet!! Can't wait to take that to work. REally clever!

Bookmarks from the same paint samples.

....I've been trying to figure out something to do with them....

A chunky bracelet, which is perfect. I've been trying to find some chunky braclets for up-coming events. But never actually buy them myself!

She used a grey colored theme, which is totally me. The can was painted from dark grey verying up to white, it reminds me of thick storm clouds.

Not inside the can, she sent a pom-pom shark! Too cute. My puppy's been trying to sneak it.

Thank yo!

Ohoh! I had wanted to mention how cool that reused plastic bag pouch. I was debating trying something like that too. But I've never done it.

ademareej, do you have photos of what you sent that you could post?

DragonEyze, is it a technical issue or is something wrong with your camera? Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

(Sorry, I'm a stickler for having photos of every can in the gallery Cheesy)
