I'm glad you liked everything, knittychick! 

I love the wall hangings and their amount of detail is just stunning.  Also, the Wall-E solar panel cross stitch made me laugh a lot.  My boyfriend tells me that I'm like Wall-E in the mornings, until after breakfast.

The mailbox is adorable too. 

What great packages!

Please remember to PM me when you've received.  It keeps me from having to go back through everything to find out.

I got a fantastic package today from octagons...here is what I received:


An "Adventure Is Out There" trinket box with a Chocolate bar eraser necklace!

A suede embroidered Toy Story-inspired wallet! Grin

A Great Outdoors sewing kit.

An Ellie Badge compact.

Carl and Ellie's wedding picture.

A Paradise Falls jar filled with balloons!!!

A fantastic ADVENTURE BOOK, all of my own!

Framed whale embroidery, with the best quote in Finding Nemo:

And...possibly the most fantastic thing that I or anyone else could have possibly received in any swap package, EVER...A PAINTING BASED ON PARTLY CLOUDY WITH A BABY SNIPE!!!!!! (For those who don't know, Partly Cloudy is a Pixar short that I LOVE Grin Grin Grin)

The note even came in a beautiful sparkly bird card!

Thank you octagons, for everything! I am in AWE...

I received from crazyda79 yesterday and it was fantastic!

Here's the pictures:

The whole package:

There's a Paradise Falls savings bank, a Russell figure, a squirrel stamp, a grape soda Ellie badge, a clipboard, and a rotating photo box.  Also a package of balloons to start my balloon collection.

The bank and the Russell decoration:

I love the bank and I'm going to start using it to save my exercise rewards. I'm sure it will help me get more motivated.  The Russell figure is made out of mini flowerpots and is quite adorable.   Smiley He's currently patrolling my plants for snipes.  He may, at some point, hold some chocolate on his head as bait.

The snipe clipboard:

Crazyda said this was to remind me of my camp counselor days and it's the perfect thing to put in my kitchen.  It's going to hold my grocery list.  I have a bad habit of writing little lists on things and then not remembering where I wrote it down.  That's the back of the clipboard, the front says "Here Snipe!"   When I was a counselor, we used to take kids on late night snipe hunts for fun, so I laughed a lot when I saw it. You can also see the grape soda Ellie badge.  I'm trying to decide which bag I'm going to put it on, my teacher bag, or my purse...

The last thing is a rotating photo box painted all the colors of Ellie and Carl's house:

 The quote on top is not from the movie, but it had a really cute story to go with it.  My boyfriend saw Up before I did and so when we went to see it together (we lived 9 hours apart for a couple of years), after we came out we were talking about it and he stopped walking, looked at me and said "Will you be my adventure?"  Of course, I looked for a ring and although there was not one, it was still very romantic.   Grin  Now whenever we watch the movie together, I get all excited.  He told me recently though, that he can't use that line again, since he already use it, but I keep hoping. That memory is my favorite one about the movie, despite not being directly in it.

So that was my fantastic package. I got it after a horrible day at work, so it was even more special. Thanks for making this a great swap everyone!

yay! I'm so glad you like it. I was afraid it was lost forever when it took sooo long to get returned to me.

That is a fantastic package!  The balloon bracelet made me squeal with glee.  And I love the mailbox.  I can't believe I didn't think of it.  The cards and envelopes are great too.  How did you make them?

I didn't make the cards and envelopes, I dyed some that I already had. I used food coloring and paper towels to do so.
