Everything recieved so far is WOw....I love everything thus far. My favorite stocking though is the high heeled boot on the second page, I think...

Came home a little early from work today and found my package from StrawberryH.   Hurrah!

Let's look and see what i got shall we.  Now lets be sure to give StrawberryH some love since she confessed she had a case of "swap anxiety."

Stockings--- embroidered with our names.  

Craft Apron  (I'll be using this when we have our garage sale in the spring)

Makeup Case/ Toiletries bag... check out the vinyl or plastic lined fabric inside cool.  thats' good because I am prone to leaky shampoo bottles.  YOu can't see it inthis picture but the zipper pull is a strawberry charm.  hehe

Embroidery-- straight off my wists was this little menorah embroidered decoration.  The Chag Sameach is Hebrew for "Joyous Festival".  Which I had to look up because my husband is not home to ask.    

Ooohh Look at this little fabric baskets made from the legs of old jeans.  Such a good Idea, I have to tell my Mom about this.   (Plus bonus point for black jeans,  hehe haven't seen a pair of those in a while... : )  

Ornaments.  Neat wire 3-d snowflakes , cooper wire star and a fuzzy bead and pompom garland.  It took me a while to realized that it was a plain store-bought beaded garland that she glued fuzzy pompoms too.   Now all I need is a tree, too bad that didn't fit into the stocking

Detail of the snowflake which is really neat and I can't figure out how it was made.  

Photos are linkable to enlarge because I didn't have time/ wherewithall to resize.   Big thanks to StrawberrryH for a lovely package. Now to pack and head out for Thanksgiving holiday.  Safe travels everybody and happy crafting!

I was so worried about this package!! I checked the tracking number yesterday and it had been forwarded and something was wrong with the zip code!
So I called the post office today and they were like, calm down, crazy lady.  And I was like, I JUST WNAT TO GIVE YOU THE RIGHT ZIP CODE.  I CAN FIX IT.  they're like, uh, we're the post office? we got this. 

And then it showed up and I grabbed the box on the way to lunch from the mail guy at my office and i think he's tired of me stalking him for swap packages (and also I have amazon and woot pkgs sent to work so he's TIRED of me coming in there going, hey, got a package for me?) BUT I received and its so awesome! I started to unwrap the box and TOTALLY forgot about lunch.  And so did everyone I was "eating" with.

I got SO MUCH. I feel completely spoiled! And without further ado, on to the picutres.

(I took these outside at lunch, but it rained all day in here in south florida, so I hope the lighting is okay.  Also, I sort of get really annoyed at the craftster photo thing, is there an easier way to post photos if i have my own site?)

Bonster had everything wrapped up and labeled with numbers in the order I was to open it.  It was a great lunchtime activity! Also, everyone at work thinks Bonster is amazing.  (As do I, obviously)
First, the stocking:

I am completely in love with the new Star trek and she totally ran with that idea! Isn't that an awesome stocking!??

Then, I started opening the numbered packages.  In all the excitement, I forgot the order, but there was a lot!

home made caramel popcorn! And I'm sad to say that it is all gone.  It was SO GOOD.  NOM NOM NOM

This is a hang up earring organizer, and I need it just for this swap.  that black part is mesh and its perfect to hang dangly earrings on.  Of which, she sent me FIVE pairs.  So cute!!

sorry for the sideways shots, but it won't let me turn them Sad

these i think are my favorite.  but its so hard to choose!

coal earrings!! straight from my wists. because I *have* been naughty...

And a necklace - this is gorgeous.

and two bracelets... the purple one is one of my favorite things, but its a little big.  I'm trying to figure out how to make it smaller

I spent a good 10 minutes just looking at the beads.  SO pretty. 

Christmas bracelet!! and it JINGLES  I think this is straight off my wists too... or else she can see into my head.

And then, its my favorite thing.  Its like a tree of life pendant, only huge sized so its an ornament.  And instead of a tree...

...its a STAR TREK Symbol! OMG its So awesome!!! (my hands there just to so you the size)

celtic ornament that she didn't make, but its still awesome

tiny little bag to hold something special! i am going to put

these rocks in it.  They're rocks from California by the redwoods! So neat.

steampunk box.  This is so neat!

and last, but certainly not least, magnets out of scrabble tiles!

Thank you so much Bonster!!! I love everythign so much!

Edie! I'm so happy you got the package! I was worried about the bracelet being to big. You can cut the wire wrapped clasps and add a regular clasp, that should make is smaller. I'm glad you feel spoiled too, I was worried I didn't craft enough. I'm glad you liked the caramel corn too.
