I got my wonderful MYB from Dolly Mixx today.  She does such amazing work with clay!  Look at all these amazing beads and stuff.  I love the orange pie slice bracelet!

Here's how it came...such a neatly rolled ball!  I couldn't keep mine in such a nice shape.
She sent me a knitting magazine with a bunch of patterns in it to choose from.

Here's all the goodies layed out

Three necklaces...I always wanted a tree pendant necklace!

My favorite - super cute bracelet!

Cute Dangly earrings

All the cute beads and stuff

Thank you so much Dolly Mixx!! 

Wow sarcasm, that's original.

I received from tcha345 on Thursday but things have been a little crazy for me. Sorry it has taken so long for me to post photos of my wonderful stuff.

Just out of the mailing box

The yarn ball

The yarn she sent(this is the most gorgeous yarn, in the best color) with a knit hat with owls and a great neckwarmer

Here is a close up of the owl washcloth that she knit, this is the pattern that is on the hat but I couldn't get a good close up of it

All the other stuff: the maxwell house jar is full of buttons(love), the tin is filled with English afternoon tea, the leaf is an emery board, the other leaf is soap, a great crochet hook, Debbie Mum buttons, bird coasters, smencil(smells like orange, my nephew loves this), button magnet, foam block stamp with ink pad, two Lindt's chocolates and the fish is bath jelly

Thank you so much tcha345! I love everything you sent. Thanks 2711 for organizing such a great swap.

Since Dbuttons can't find the camera cord at the moment I volunteered to post photos of the MYB I send her.
Here it is after I was finished making it somewhat ball shaped. I was a bit worried the bamboo needles wouldn't make it, but they got to norway unharmed.

And now everything before:

I send her this pattern for a knit hat with skulls.
Here are a bunch of close-ups of the crafted item. The measuring tape is my favorit! Will have to make myself one soon.

I received!! I love it BentoBox! Thank you SOO MUCH for everything!!

I hope that nothing is missing though, because the box looked like it was tampered with. Huh
You just can't trust the USPS these days lol

Here is a group shot. Isn't the hat so cute?! teehee Smiley
There is also a drawstring bag, some lifesavers, a crocheted clock that is going to live on my desk, and a little crocheted dishscrubber!!

Here is a closeup of my favorite item. A BENTO BOX!! I absolutely love bento boxes, and I am so happy to have another one to add to my little collection!!

Isn't Hello Kitty cute?

bahaha! She is hiding some hi-liters and a cute notepad in her mouth!!

And I forgot to get a picture of the pattern, but it is for a cute little dinosaur amigurumi. I will post pictures when I am done with it Cheesy

Thanks again, BentoBox! Your package is awesome  Grin

Got my fab package from Slingmomma today!  Prepare to be jealous!

First the loverly yarn!

The pink is soft and perfect, and the orange is wool!  My patterns are for two purses, a bunch of awesome sweets/food crochet, and a fab smore's pattern that I think I'm going to try out tonight!

I immediately unwound the yarn and got to my goodies!

That's maple syrup and locally made maple candy!  I <3 maple candy!  Would have done this whole swap for some maple candy and some yarn lol  First thing I did after unpacking was to eat a piece of maple candy!  Mmmmmmm maple candy!  (Man I said maple candy a lot lol)

Another little skein of yarn, a yummy candy bar, a little cupcake lipgloss, a turtle thingie, and a cute little notebook with my initial on it.

Cupcake notecards, cupcake magnets, some fabric tape, a very pretty pen, a fab little retractable measuring tape, and a little cupcake!

A yum orange washcloth, a pretty bracelet, and an awesome little wallet that will soon be in my purse!

Zodiac toys, rooster for me pig for the hubby, and two cat toys (?)

And last, a wonderful little hook roll and some trim!  I also got four adorable stitch markers that I somehow missed in the pics!

I love every single thing!  I've had so much fun in this swap, and Slingmomma, you've been a wonderful partner!

edit:  I totally didn't realize the cupcake was a little box, and it was hiding the most awesome little goodies!
