knickertwist, I love the tree book, but that little tin has to be my favorite. I love how you can make beautiful scenes in tiny places!

I'm drooling over that hobbit bag!

But I don't have to, because I got my wonderful swap package from norahkate, and I am so happy about it!

On top of it, a very, very long zipper.

Great colors, but what might it be? I zipped it and got a bag:

I zipped some more and got a clutch:

Haha, what a clever thing! I love it! And I still haven't figured out quite how it was done... but there was more!
Olaf the Shirtless, fearless Viking with plaited beard and too cute to become a pincushion. (Sorry, I turned it, but it doesn't work)

Cool pillowcase with Hitchhiker motif (it's actually neon green, and it's fun that we both made neon colored stuff for each other Smiley)

And a hat!

And inside the hat, there was a bottle of homemade maple syrup! I'm very excited about this, because I never tasted maple syrup before, and it was made by norahkate and her family, so this is really special! (Not to mention it weighs at least a ton, in an overseas package)

And finally, there was a bag made out of a pillowcase (in a simple but very clever way which I will have to steal Smiley) filled with Harry Potter stamps and candy.

Thank you, norahkate, I love my package!

Those zipper bags are too amazing!  WOW!  At first I was like "what is she gonna do with a zipper that long?!??"  I can't believe it all zipped right up into a couple bags.  NEAT-O

That zipper bag rocks! And I love how she packaged it - that's ingenious!

Yay! I got my package from the lovely and talented lancmaltby yesterday.
But the stupid FedEx guy left it out in the rain!  Angry
Luckily it was salvageable and only one minor part of the package couldn't be repaired.

Lots of pics now!!

Some REALLY cool vintage craft magazines. They got a little wet (stupidfedex) but after spending some time in the 90 degree heat and in front of a fan they dried out nicely. No real damage done luckily!

3 skiens of yarn in the most fun colors!! Gotta think of a really good project for them!

A ton of seeds for my garden. We talked alot about our gardens in PM. Unfortunatly my hubby never rotatilled the soil for me so mine never got started...:-( But there is always next year!

Stamps, sticker, and paper Oh my!

Jewlery stuff!! I love the long glass pendant so much I may change the dress I'm wearing to a wedding tonight just so I can wear it!

Stuff to organize my kitchen/my life! Recipe box, recipe cards, coupon envelope, magnets, weekly meal planning paper!

Pads of paper. One set has a notebook for Good Ideas and one for Crazy ideas!!! And the other is sticky notes that say "file this" "save this" "toss this" etc.

Some fabulous notecards! I LOVE these soo so much! I have to write alot of notes for my MOPS group so these will be wonderful!! I LOVE the fabric you used L~!
Unfortunately the envelopes didn't survive their soaking :-( But they can be replaced easily enough :-)
An ADORABLE little tote and picture frame. Though my two year old has claimed the tote as her purse and has been carrying it on her arm all day and stuffing htings in it. Last look it contained a bouncy ball, two rocks, a beaded necklace, and a small plastic figure. (Annie from Little Einsteins if any one else is forced to watch this show CONSTANTLY!)
PINK gardening gloves! So cool! And funny...since I sent her some gardening gloves too!

The purse! Oh my goodness the purse! I love love love love love it! Its my favorite purse EVER! EVER EVER EVER. And Pierce (my 5 month old) reallylikes to chew on the braided straps! Silly boy.

I'm not sure if its meant to be reversable but whne I flipped it to take a pic of hte lining I noticed it could be used either way..so yay to that!! I LOVE the fabric choices you made sweetie!

And last but not least..the little zipper pouch!!! So cute, and the perfect size for my chapstick collection!! :-)

Thank you thank you thank you thank you darling partner! Its all fabulous!

That looks like a fun package!
The fabrics on the purse rock together and it is always good to be able to carry something that will keep your boy quiet Cheesy

Hitchikers pillow...awesomeness! Grin

yay, i'm so glad you like your package! Grin

i can't claim responsibility for the cool bag ideas.  the pillowcase tote is a martha stewart pattern/tutorial (and way fun - after this one i made several more!)
and the zipper purse is from an episode of Sewing With Nancy on public television (although i can't remember the name of her guest who supplied it)  It's just several (this one i believe was 5ish) yards of zipper and the same of ribbon.  Too much fun and endless possibilities.  There's really no practical reason to be able to unzip it i suppose, but it makes for a really fun present when you can deliver it that way. Wink

Thank you for an awesome swap!! Smiley

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)
