There's no need to be anxious!  You're golden if you stuck by the rules (i.e. one thing for each category). 

I know my partner (AsphaltQueen) from other swaps...hence I knew she wouldn't mind if I was a wee bit of a naughty swapper  Embarrassed

Well, after the whole conversation in the main thread about "Oh, it's fine if you do multiples of items," I'm kind of worried that I oversent on a few things.   Undecided 

I have teas called "relax" and "detox" but what I really need is ones called "no headache" and "feel less like screaming."

Yeah, if (when) I do another round of this I will defininately clean up & clarify the definition of size on each thing. I think three weeks was actually pushing it for speed too, four would have been better. Live & learn!

I am really impressed by all the neat stuff and the crafted things have been fantastic! My problem is I have a very long list of things I have to do before I can start playing with all my neat paper.
Where is my mind?

Yay!  I hadn't been online since yesterday afternoon, so I was so excited to see that you had received, rackycoo!  I'm glad you liked everything, and how funny that you collect coasters!  I love their coasters.  I just think the cutout fish is really neat. 

Everyone's packages are really great.  This was a quick, gratifying swap.  I'd love to do it again if there's another round! 

I love all the old photographs and books.  And the handmade papers are so fun.  Smiley

I received a greatly luscious package from goatgoddess! I just now (like, 10 minutes ago) scored a used printer-scanner for $15, so I'm going to try to get that going so I can post scans of the goodness, which will give much better detail than my horrid camera.  Smiley Hang in there, imagery is on its way!

I received a great package from half pint today.  I love everything and seeing how she interpreted things, and the goodies she had to share.  Thanks so much, I am already getting inspiration!

(Apologies as my camera just stopped working this weekend, so I did it all on a scanner.)

Vintage:  Old postcard of the Statue of Liberty
Local:  Pamphlet from Portland on biking
Label:  An old booklet from Life magazine on the hula hoop.  (So cute, I used to love hula hoops.)

Postal:  Stamps, which I love and collect, and a playing card postman.  I have this exact card set!  I was so excited when I saw him.
Chunky:  Little foam animals like the ones she labeled everything with.
Sharp:  Haha, this was the first thing I pulled out and it made me laugh.  Mini weapons, a sword, saw, and a few others.  I am going to have so much fun with these.
Botanical:  What looks like homemade paper with bits of plants and flowers.

Transportation:  Pretty photo and some stickers from a Japanese messenger company.
Whimsical:  Hard to tell with my scanning, but it's a strip of shiny reflective...something.  I love it though and may put it up at work.  (I face away from everyone and need a mirror to keep people from sneaking up.)
Over 20:  Various types of ATC backs, yea!

Sender's choice:  A bunch of envelopes made from magazine pages.
Found, part 1:  The front of a found photo of a sunset.

Typography:  A sheet of rub-on letters
Found, part 2:  The back of the found photo.  I love the use of "beautifull," spelled that way, three times.  Great find!
The pink square was my attempt at scanning in one of her embroidered altered pieces, seen below.

Altered:  three embroiderd pieces, on three different mediums.  I really really love these and can't wait to use them.  I was especially touched by the learning to fly one, as it's the name of my blog and favorite Tom Petty song.  Thank you!

Photo:  What is maybe a negative of an old photo.  Looks like a young couple on a ship's deck or a dock.  I shouldn't play favorites, but this is definitely in my top...15.  I think I may frame it.  Or just keep staring at and writing their life stories in my head.

Thanks again, half pint, for everything!  And thanks to penlowe for organizing and coming up with such a great swap!

I received my package from Pinokeeo on Saturday but finally had a day off from work and was able to clear off my coffee table today so I could actually take some pictures. She sent me a lot of fun things.

Overview of everything:

3 colorful posters, 2 kitty calenders and a map of her area:

4 paper boxes made by Pinokeeo (which my cat believes are hers for some reason, I have to keep them up high), some little bird images, a paper star made by Pinokeeo (my favorite item) and some polished rocks that have already joined my extensive rock collection:

Some flower stickers, wildlife stamps, postcards from her home area, a 1 million dollar bill (if only...), kitty stickers, photos of her pets, typewriter correction sheets, hole reinforcements and glitter brads:

Thank you, Pinokeeo for such a great package Smiley

Which way's north?
