Yippee!!!  I got mine yesterday too, thankfully I saw the box, the mail lady stuck it on a chair next to the garage, whereas normally she sticks it on the ground by the front door  Tongue

Anyway, sorry I did even jump on here to announce that I received yesterday, it's not like me to wait more than 5 minutes to do so but I was feeling REALLY yucky and it took all my energy just to put ALLLLLL the goodies away that Caluna sent me!

Okay, so on with the pictures and descriptions!

Group shot:

lots of ephemera: mini cards, pages from an asian book, completely off-the-wall-random pictures from different books, stickers, cardstock, a piece of handmade paper with poppy seeds embedded... just tons of crazy stuff!  I'm sure I'll be discovering something new in it all everytime I sort through!
some really pretty embroidery floss, a baggy of beer/ale bottle caps (such cool ones too!), a piece of elastic, a stamp, a paper punch of a dog, seam bindings & trim, clasps...

a huge pack of iron-on transfer (extra excited about these), a huge magnetic strip (so many things I can do with this!), super soft plaid fleece, some green fabric that I happen to have a scrap of the exact same stuff, now I can do more with it, lol, some black vinyl, red felt, some black stuff that I don't know what kind of fabric it is but feels similar to ultra suede, and then there's some beautiful white fabric (and lots of it) that might be PERFECT for a project I'm doing for another swap!!!!  And off to the right, somehow it got cut off in every picture but there's some little mosaic jewel/rocks in a baggy too!

OH!  And all the while I was pulling all this out of the box, there were random buttons and little plastic figurines stuffed in all the little gaps (talk about filling every space!  LOL) oh, and a big googly eye too  Cheesy

What an awesome swap, thank you so much!!!!  I will definitely be signing up for the next round!  I was NOT disappointed!

OK, so here are the contents of my box from Pupper!  LOVE the blue fun fur, I think I can make something really nifty with it Smiley

The whole lot of it!  Great stuff here...zippers, beads, thread, buttons, fabric, transfers, cross stitch and other stitching items, notions, and more!

Tons of fun in these bags!  Will take some time to sort, but looks like a lot of fun plastic beads Smiley  I love fun beads!

This had to be one of my fave items!  Pre-made pockets, love it!  Will have to use these on one of my first pairs of pants as pockets seem a bit daunting to me  Undecided

Thanks so much, Pupper!

Here are some of the highlights from the package Sheepblue sent me! Forgive the many scans; I tore into the box and went to work with its contents before I could get a proper group shot, and now everything has assimilated into my stash already!  Roll Eyes

Here are holiday cards, sewing notions, a box full of pins with an adhesive panel to put something on the front (I've never made pins/brooches before, so my imagination is swirling with the possibilities!), and that cute wallet is actually a sewing kit inside!

The doves are a garland--I can't wait to put this up for some event! Plus a whole slab of wintery scrapbook paper. And I loooove the Strawberry Shortcake patch like you wouldn't believe.

A little mis-squished in the scanner, but look how cute this cupcake towel is!

I received some Dr Seuss, a x-stitch pattern books with blank charts for designing my own, a pad of activity paper, and, not in the pictures, foam with a sticky side (yesss! I really did need that!), and more sewing notions.  Grin

Then a whole bunch of embroidery floss and needlework fabric--I couldn't fit all of it on the scanner!

She also send a great variety of beads, some clear tubing, and colored electric wires, which I promptly had to combine to make cat toys. I'm adding a few things to them from the things I can't give away, such as yarn and ribbons scraps, feathers and bells--

Thanks for all the great booty!!

Yesterday I got my awesome package from rita, aka oops_creations!
First, there are a ton of postards from art shows and such. There's a really cool one of birds on a tree that have mushrooms for heads.

Some random stuff including breast cancer ribbons that have flower seeds in them, notebooks, note pads and best of all, floss holders for 'civilized flossing!'

And there is more, much more! Here you can see that she sent a bunch of quilt blocks (the flying geese are my favorite) and some circular knitting needles, faux wood pieces, the cutest snoopy and bunny dolls and  a roll of shiny stuff. I'm not sure what I'll use it for, but it's cool and shiny!

And lastly, here is the fabric. There are some really sweet vintage pieces and a bunch of Christmas fabric. There is also a opppet making kit with eyes, fabric and even a pattern and instructions. My favorite part of the whole box is the California flag...CA represent!

Thank you very much, Oops creations! I can't wait to start using it all.

I'm working on getting my blog up, check it out! Smiley

I received from SapphireMoon on Tuesday.  Here are the goodies.

A box chocked full of goodies.  Look at this great fabric.  There's a swimsuit material in a great tropical print, cute kids fabric.  Loving the Penguins!  That cream/blue/red fabric with graphic pattern is serged on the sides so i think I might just end up using that as a table runner.  Very nice. Plus a bold bright stripe that I'm seeing as reusable grocery totes or beach bags

Plus notions, look bias tape, ribbon, google eyes, yarn and more. 

Thanks so much Sapphire Moon,  this was a great package of goodies that helped brighten my day. 

---and you are welcome FlashleyAshely and Shadeweaver I'm happy that you both enjoyed your packages.  : )

Finally on the Wist Bandwagon:  http://wists.com/OopsCreations

I have loads of good quality CIGAR BOXES available for trade.  Great for purses, shrines, jewelry boxes.  PM for Pics.
