Here is my wonderful package from Craftastrophe:

Her fave candy - it was immediately claimed by my two year old - "Mom, this can be my potty treats!"

A flamingo can cooler featuring her fave animal - jazzing up my promotional wine glass! (Wine time starts at five during the week, but at two on Sundays)

Her fave craft supply (glitter=awesuuuuummmmm), favorite color (All!), and favorite game, which I cannot wait to try!

Something to wear with my favorite pattern - argyle!

Our favorite character, HK. Funny thing is I bought HER a HK notebook, too! But I selfishly kept it and gave her something else HK. Also, some COOL folders - I love office supplies, too!

Something local - coffee syrup, the state drink of Rhode Island. I'm totally intrigued by this and intend to add it to some frosting - I hope that works! She says they typically use it in milk or milkshakes. Also, a handbag musthave - lotion!

Thanks, Craftastrophe! Now my package anxiety is even worse! I hope you like yours!!!!

I want some coffee milk...

And some orange spice tea.  I've had a migraine today and maybe some tea will make it go away (fat chance, I know).

Package 1

I received this package last week but I was away all weekend, so I'm posting it here now! Better late than never Smiley

Here it is, all nicely wrapped up

Here is something that smells nice, soaps from Lush. The whole package smelled yummy.

This fudge is something edible and something local. My boyfriend was here when it arrived, so it didn't last long Tongue

My partner's favourite colours are black and blue like in this lovely necklace

Her favourite craft supply is fabric

This candle is something sentimental, and it's very beautiful

Her favourite fashion accessory is ribbon, which I am very pleased about! Cheesy

This little black bag is something that shows her style. My camera made it look a bit shiny...

One of her non-craft hobbies is reading, so she sent me this book

Her favourite animal (just like mine!) is a cat, although this kitty is also part mouse Wink

And she also sent me this lovely book as something made from paper

So thankyou very much sg1psychopath! I hope you love my package as much as I love yours Cheesy

Package 1
First up the package when I opened it!

Now some ribbons, a new crafting supply obsession of lukenlarry's

Now for an embroidered card she did,

it included this paper butterfly, that even with the warning, scared me out of my wits,

Then something from her favorite store, the dollar store, light up necklaces,

Then some ornaments like ones she had when she were little, Christmas is her favorite holiday,

Now a ring, lukenlarry has loved this particular type of jewelry since she was little,  it is funny, I used to have a ring like this when I was in high school!

Mary Kay satin hands and a bath bomb, because she likes relaxing baths-a hobby we share

And she collects quarters, so this is a page from her collection book

Finally something sentimental, a castle she and her boys painted for me.  She likes crafting with her kids and had a hard time letting this one go, I think I have some special future plans so lukenlarry might see her love grow even more,

Package 2

This package was full of fun and practicality, my 2 favorite adjectives when making a craft.  I especially love the purse organizer so I can keep stuff in that and switch purses as opposed to trying to remember everything.  I also really loved the scented trivet which smells like cinnamon spices when it gets warm.  I love the smell of food.  Also included was some fabric, Miss Piggy bookplates, ribbon, yarn and some chocolate bath salts/bombs which are already half gone now. She was nice enough to include recipes so I can make my own when the time comes.

Package 3

Here are the first 2 pages of a felt embroidered name book she made for my son.  I had one on my wist and had been meaning to do it forever.  Isaac loves his book and it came in a very timely manner; he has been obsessed with wanting me to spell and say his name with the wood letters I painted for him by his bed after naptime.  The book adds some variety, so thank you.

And now for the ultimate, I have no idea how long this must have taken.  She wove this herself.  I am using it as a camera bag which I am sure my hubby appreciates.  He says I am too rough on things and need to be more careful, so here she be, my new camera case!

Thanks so much for my packages and I think the little extra surprise I have for you might come along closer to Christmas....This was such a fun swap, it is so neat to see how different everyone's packages are.

My friends I am addicted to "crackster".  I think they might be right.
I am interested in personal swaps, just send me a pm!

I love my life, my hubby, my sons, and my 2 crazy dogs!  Isn't life grand?
