Yay!  I received my awesome envelope from myklia!!! 

A great selection of 'vintage ladies' like I had hoped for.  These are so fun to look at.  Also, see that black glitter?  Those are two pieces of glitter felt!   Grin Grin  I think its funny because I sent her some black glitter paper. 

Two of my favorite ladies:

Fun summer paper:

She had decorated the inside of the envelope which I forgot to take a picture of.  Thank You, myklia!  LOVE my envelope.   Wink

Knitting goal for 2011: knit 500,000 stitches.  24,078/500,000 knit.  I think I'm going to need more yarn...

So I got my envie out of "mail jail". Here is all the really cool loot I received from Samantha.Arch:

There are a bunch of fall stickers (love the glitter ones), three skeins of embroidery floss, a couple ATCs and ATC blanks, some cool pumpkin cut outs (the white jack-o-lantern is awesome), a bit of printed vellum, a bag with buttons and a whole bunch of jump rings (I needed these!) and last but not least...chocolate!

I think the ACTs need a close up:

Both of these are great...though the crime scene is my absolute favorite. Smiley

Thank you so much Samantha! I love everything and will put it to good use. I was worth the wait. Wink

I'm really glad you both liked your items! It was really fun to make things for the both of you cause you two seemed a lot alike.  Grin

As I'm typing this my husband and I are trying to figure out the printer. I got batteries for the digital camera but the cord is at my moms. So I plugged the card into the printer and it's telling me that I need to install the software... Which I don't have. lol If I have to I'll bust out the cell phone again and do pictures that way. But there will be pictures TONIGHT!  Grin Wink

I don't know what your technical setup is...but usually you can upload to your photo hosting site right from your memory card. I know that's what I do with photobucket. I put my card in my computer, cancel when it tries to get me to upload to my computer and then just upload from the card in photobucket.

Though cell phone pictures are OK too. Smiley

I think the reason why it came postage due was everything sort of shifted to the middle and it was too thick. I weighted it on my scale and the weight shouldn't have been an issue.

  Glad you got the mail bailed out! What a trip that crime scene ATC is!
I don't think I could I could get away with making or getting something like that around "Grandma"! She'd freak! She'd think I was dangerous!
So, I wonder who'se left to recieve?

Mail jail! Haha that cracks me up!

Here are the pictures of what the amazing Spookygrrrly sent me... Finally!!
And by finally I mean finally I can upload the pictures not that the envelope took forever. lol  Roll Eyes Also, no postage needed!
I apologize for the quality of the pictures.  Undecided

First is my favorite!! Beautiful floral paper. I can't wait to use this! I have some inchies and atcs in mind right now.  Grin

Next are some cute Halloween stickers and state stamps! I love how the stamps have facts about the state on the back! The state bird, flower, tree, capital, and statehood. How stinkin cute.

And we have some awesome fabric that has skulls and knitting needles. It's folded in this picture btw. She did her stalking and found out I am trying to learn how to knit.  Grin It has a black background with white skulls and pink knitting needles.

And last but not least she sent me some heart confetti and small jewels (perfect for inchies!) Sparkly ribbon and some Japanese (I believe) charms. All of it was packaged in a cute little pouch.

Thank you so very much Spookygrrrly. I love everything that you sent! Another great 1st time swapper right here!! I can't wait to use all of the great things that you both sent me. Thank you again! And thank you organizers. You did an amazing job of keeping such a huge swap moving smoothly!

Oh and I want that puppy!!  Grin

First, from loves2experiment:

everything she mailed- tons of super cool scrapbooking stuffs!!! yayyy I took a trip to korea this summer and I totally have to scrap book it so all of this will come in handy!!!

Close up of my favorites:

a super cool fabric pouch that I'm certain i have a use for!! and one of many 3-D button stickers she sent but this one is crossword patterned and i heart crosswords!

From Sarcastra:

super cute envie... my house mate was jealous, she even liked the stamp you used!!

Now multiple pics cause she sent me soooo much stuff (i was spoiled)

sheet of stickers and a tape measure ribbon

mooorrree scrapbooking stuff and a fortune

and my favorites:

lol i'll probably use the cut outs with the butterfly and flower on it to make more pretty envelopes to send to swap partners lol specially if there is another 44 cent swap!

Thank you so much to both my partners and to the moderater/co-moderater!!

I'm glad you like everything Samantha. I had fun picking stuff out. Smiley

Oh and the heart confetti are actually stickers. They are the seal kind that you lick and stick. I like using them in small projects because it's just enough tack to hold in place until I seal it later.

Phew, I am relieved the envelope got there and that you like it.  It was a challenge to edit the items to get down to an ounce.
