As far as I'm aware of, most everyone did spend 44 cents on postage for their envelopes.  A couple of exceptions were the non-machinable envelopes, which meant a 20 cent penalty (even though the envelope weighed an ounce). 

For my envelope, I sent the card case 'open' so it laid flat...and it was a breeze to stick a couple of notecards (also laid flat) along with a dozen inchies (which were arranged carefully Wink).  Yeah, it was really fun to try to figure out how to meet the requirements Cheesy

I received today from 85%confusion! 

Man....I tell you what...this girl didn't just cyber-stalk me....she climbed right into my head and pulled out things that my tiny little pea brain loves and makes my heart get all full of love.  Damn, girl, you are good!   Grin Grin Grin

So here's the awesomeness that I got: 



I got a strip of cross stitch bookmark material...Including a needle AND a skein of variegated girly pink embroidery floss. My favorite color!!!! I already know that I MUST stitch roses on it. I love to read and am in serious need of a new book mark.

Next, I got this really, really, really sweet tatted  and beaded choker!  Tatted!  How did you know this about me?  Seriously....you had to have been inside my head!  I was *just* checking out some instructions on tatting!  I was. Honestly...I was!  And here you send me something tatted.   





AANNNDD there was two really sweet honey bee stickers! Honey bees!  *Does a happy dance*  I luvers honey bees!

Last but not least....a recipe for "Holiday Indulgence" which included two of my favorite-ist things in the world! Chocolate and raspberries.  Chocolate AND Raspberries.  Guess what topping I just put on my ice cream last night? Yup. Chocolate syrup and raspberries. 

*SWOOOON...picks self up off the floor...looks around for hidden camera*  How did you know these things about me...?? Wow, girl, you are a swapper of the legendary kind!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have received from Calsters and beadedbyamy and I love love love everything.  They both did a great job of sending things that are so me and I can most definitely use in future crafts. 

My computer crashed last week so I can't post pics right now, I'm hoping my great partners can for me but if not I will as soon as I am able to get on a computer other than work.  lol 

On a side note, I love the idea of this swap but both envelopes I received had tiny tears and holes in them, not big enough to lose anything but any more time in a mail carriers bag and I'm afraid they would have ripped open.  I noticed a couple of other people mentioning holes and that also. I'm assuming it was the machine they run them through and the fact that we didn't send just flat paper.  I don't know if there is a solution but maybe something to think about for a second round.    Huh

calsters, you talked about wanting polka dot ribbon in the original swap thread... so there you go! Plus when you told me you're allergic to most metals, I thought "wow I bet it's hard to find many good accessories... I wonder if I could make her something totally metal free and cool." Then I worried if it would be too bulky, but I knew I had to send it anyways!

I received from calsters, but I'll wait until I get my other envelope to post pictures. Smiley

I love seeing all the amazing goodies that everyone managed to fit in their envelopes Cheesy

Yikes.  That's definitely something that needs to be addressed.  Not quite sure if this will work...but how about taping the envelope w/ packing tape to reinforce the paper?  Any other ideas?
