I received an awesome package today, which made me so excited and happy. Several of the items are already in use!

First up we have some fabulous ribbon. I don't know how my stalker figured it out, as I don't think I've ever admitted it, but I love ribbon or all sorts. I use it all the time.

Next is some lovely cards so I can send letters out while I'm in Sweden later this summer. Although, I won't send them to anyone but my mom, cause I don't want anyone to throw them out.

They were packaged up nice with (more) ribbon, but I was too eager.

A leaf card and matching envelopes.

Terribly blurry shot of the other designs. Another leaf, an owl, and a flower. The designs are so neat. It's like a stamp but the ink is raised up.

Beautiful fabric coasters. They are the pink and green fabric on one side, the polka dots on the other. Apologies for the blurry pictures. I must have been shaking about in excitement!

A fabulous lunch set, with a lunch bag, a sandwich bag, and two snack bags. Already in use holding snacks for work.

Just the lunch bag. You can see the lining fabric and the awesome button closure and strap. It is so easy to carry and holds plenty of food.

Holding imaginary food. I hadn't packed it up yet, but wanted to show it off.

Action shot of the snack bag holding my potato chips.

I love everything so so much. Who made these lovely items you ask?

It was the great swampolympics! I had actually crossed her off of my stalker list because of one of her clues, but obviously I am no detective!

I want that camera cozy!  It's so cute.  I also want/need a lunch set like that.  I seldom carry a full lunch to work (since I only work 4 hours a day) but I always take fresh fruit, nuts, cheese and such.  If I don't get one in a swap soon, I'll have to break down and make myself one.

OK Here goes.... attempting to post the pics of my awesome goodies (taken with my son's camera) I just have to repeat that HNGOODLETT is awesome!
first up we have a shot of the 2 AWESOME art rolls/bags she sent for my sons and I.

here's a shot of silly boy showing off his batmam bag with colored pencil slots

(his arms are like that cause he wanted to show how much he could fit into it and look like he's flying.)
next I had to include the shot of the inside of my SWEET Care Bear roll.... she included sharpies for me!! (btw... Alex says he should get this one too cause it matches his blanket... I don't think so buddy! This one is MaMa's!)

Here's a shot of my railing modeling the skirt... she was worried that I wouldn't like it Shocked... she's right I FREAKIN LOVE IT!!!  Grin

ok ok I know you want to see it... the shot of me wearing it... excuse the pasty legs and storm messed deck (I can't figure why it's hanging at a weird angle... maybe cause I have to loose a few pounds before it zips all the way, or possibly DH's photog skills!
Here's a group shot of the 4 perfect coasters made for my new living room (forest theme) They are beautiful! Excuse DH's arm

Here's a close up of 2 of them so you can see how pretty they are
How rockin' is this mario shroom on a warp pipe? She said all her geeky friends love it and she might need to make more... I can see why!
My sons and I are still fighting on where it will live!
Finally we have the "extra goodies" that she spoiled me with.
My favorite extra has to be the organic basil kit the directions and info are printed on paper with the seeds inside! Seems pretty idiot proof, so I hoe I won't kill it!
Can you guess what happened to the chocolate... he tried, but I'm faster  
these are some plant/herb markers for my garden and a GREAT headband... I think I'll wear it to work tomorrow!

finally I took a shot of how she revealed herself...
all her notes were on paint chips that matched the items! How clever!!!
I'm SO grateful for everything and LOVE it all!
Thanks again HNGOODLETT!!

I received my gorgeous package from fiberartist4life today!!!!!!!!

This is what I saw when I opened up the box:

That is a paper and plastic spy glass that says "Someone has been watching you"

Here we have things that always make me happy, laffy taffy and chili cheese fritos....yummo!  (also note the hand orange nylon bag)

And here is a pretty ladybug pincushion (I collect pincushions)

And from my list - cloth menstrual pads.....somehow I just never got around to making them myself and now I don't have to!

AAAAANNNNNDDDDD a super fantastic Fairie House (it even has some little fairy furniture!)

you can see the furniture a little in this one of everything altogether (on the left)

Thank you so much fiberartist4life I adore everything! You did a great job for your first swap!

Okay,I'm so glad you liked everything valsped. Also so glad that the skirt nearly fits. It's the first clothing item I've made since some pajama pants I made with my grandma when I was about 12, and it looked like it turned out smaller than intended, so I was concerned. Maybe if you wear suck it in undies. That's what I do when my clothes are too tight  Cheesy. Also, I'm not usually into fairy things, but that little house is cute!

My Wist!
