lancmaltby, so glad you liked your jar

this swap was so much fun to shop for.  and scrounge through old toy boxes.  i found the gloworm and orange blossom toys in my 'my little ponies' box.  i saw the gloworm and knew that had to go to you Smiley

and yes, that is a monkey with a slinky for a body.  heehee.  world market is an awesome store to buy whimsies at

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

Hey Twistmysister! glad you finally got to post.  It's funny coz I had forgotten all the stuff I had put in.  I'm glad you started using the clay....I want to see pics of your bone necklace!
The continuous zip is cool huh?  I had envisioned having a go at mickncrispys purses, but bugger it, you can try if you want. Winkhttps://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=164630.0
I love the nut pendants too, inspiration for those came from here http://www.iweardoyou.com/accessories_main_nav.html
The frog was inspired from www.teddyscares.com but they are super way cool and I didn't even come close!
And guess what Kate?  I know you said you want more badges, and my kids' school is having a fete on friday and they are having badge making, bigger ones 2 and 3/4 inch diameter I think, so if you have any cool images you want me to do drop me a PM and I will make em and send em over to you.
The bag was a great find and I wanted to punk it up, but I knew you would do a better job....so lets see what you do to it.
And the leopard print beads? I woulda  got more if I could have, they were on the bargain table at my bead wholesaler, so you better put em to good use. LOL coz I don't think I can find you any more.
And the turtle is supposed to glow in the dark, didn't try that out. Does he?

Anyway, glad you enjoyed the package, I had sooo much fun putting it together for you, trying to think of things you would like.  sounds like I succeeded.  And as if that wasn't fun enough, i kinda forgot that one is coming back to me.  Can't wait to see it.

My digital camera died just as I went to upload the pictures... *smacks face with palm*
So instead, I uploaded the ones I took with my cellphone just so you can see how amazing my jar was.
Unfortunately, the picture of the stitch markers is on my camera. So I'll be editing this to include higher quality pictures later!

Thanks paintindiva for an amazing jar! Cheesy
