I received from angelofmusic and it's a fantastic package!  I have to turn off my computer after writing this (huge thunderstorm), so pictures will come tomorrow afternoon. 

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

ScotSkipper402 I'd share it with you you live to far away.
I love the way OGD got all the elements into the pentagram, it so matches my personality so well


Life is a terminal disease, NO one gets out alive.....The idea is to enjoy it while you can.

Wowsers that's one great package OGD/Tanza I hear that OGD's stash is of epic proportions, in my head I picture it like an aircraft hangar with little elves on forklifts and everything super organised into colours, crafts and then alphabetically, tell me OGD is this what it's really like?  Grin don't spoil my craft fantasy now  Tongue

P.s my crafting space is more like a cross between Hoarders and imagine a fabric bomb going off  Wink
You package was Aweinspireing!
Well I always say Fiber and Fabric and Books Add R- Factor to your houses insulation. And shelving units on the walls full of said stuff is best. SEE HONEY IT SAVES US MONEY, AND THE ENVIRONMENT! Some how He doesn't see it that way....

minus the fact that my ceilings arent quite that high.....so the elves arent needed all the time..... your fantasy is pretty much dead on..... if I wasnt as organised as I am, IT WOULD BE HORID....with the amount stuff I have...I have no choice!! Wink

I received from hngoodlett But I have been to tired to post sorry. I finally made my DD take the photos . It is good practice for her.
What is funny is I do have the first one too.

I needed this swiffer cover.

This cool bag is made out of a pillow case and the longer handles will make it easier to carry more bags at once

Awesome feeling yarn she had laying around. I cant figure the origin of the fiber it is a natural polymer like Nylon

Dryer balls! which rock! they really do shorten dry time

Washy Cloths

And HK Ribbon My DD was very happy to see this

A sandwich wrap which I really need Both for money and diet. BUT it might get claimed in the fall by DD because of the HK on it

Despite the bad photo this is a coffee cup holder I had my DD take all the photos Because she needs the practice with the camera

Snacky Bags and the Sandwich wrap

It my package cool or what!
Thanks Hope you like you stuff too, hngoodlett.

These are all such fabulous packages, it's hard to believe this was a frugal swap. What a creative bunch of crafters (with really nice stashes) you all are!

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.

It's cool, isn't it?  I love seeing what others can do from stash - it inspires me to do more crafting from stash.  And helps me to fend off my new craft supply cravings. Cheesy  The only thing I've bought recently for personal crafting was some pink cotton yarn to make some baby hats because I just didn't have any pink cotton yarn.  And it was worth it - they turned out cute. Smiley  But that was less than $4 for two balls of yarn..not too bad.

Baby number four is here and he's a boy!!  Time to start using all the great stuff I got from a bunch of Craftster friends:

Itchyfingers, you are going to post pics of the baby as soon as she is born aren't you?  I can't wait to see her!

Too bad I don't hear voices, I would enjoy the company
