Wow!  That Harry Potter theme is amazing!  I love it!  The Leaky Cauldron plaque is awesome!  Great work and GREAT package!

I received my MYB on Wednesday with lots of awesome goodies! My theme was video games/nintendo.

Here is the package prior to unwinding the pattern was for a pipe plant from Super Mario Brothers Smiley

I received 2 hats (a moogle from Final Fantasy and Kirby), mario mushroom stitch markers, a needlepoint nintendo controller box, a hair bow with a white mage from Final Fantasy, a question block candy tin, a small green mushroom, a larger red mushroom that opens for storage like a coin purse, a bomb-omb bag and pacman pins. I also received a Super Mario Brothers cartoon DVD that I forgot to include in the picture.

I also received some fun extras, 2 kinds of Japanese candies, bath beads, a fuse bead kit, 2 iron-on rhinestone skulls, coconut lotion and cupcake lipgloss.

Thanks for a great swap princesspimp81!

Such awesome and creative packages, I'm loving all the unique bags!

I've heard it both ways.

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

I received today from Tygermane! She sent me inspirational running stuff (on shrinky dinks I think, so cool), some purchased running stuff, spa socks for after my big run, three knitting patterns (super cute hats and a KINITTED granny square) plus a learn to crochet book/kit (complete with patterns and hooks!) so that I can learn to make granny squares. Also, some granny squares for inspiration.

I love my stuff, thank you! And thanks, tar for organizing -- you ran a super great swap!

Without further adieu, here are pics:

The ball (the man I am a live-in caretaker for, who has a developmental disability, was SUPER excited and helped me unwrap for TWO hours (with a short dinner break) he said it looked like a "comfy pillow"):

What is it? (at one point C said it might be hotdogs...lots of funny guesses!):

All my loot (including some granny squares - I LOVE granny squares- and the softest most comfy socks EVER Smiley :

The crafted running inspiration (Stitch markers -- runner and go, markers or earrings that say 26.2, LOTS of magnets -- runner girl, run, 26.2, etc.; I especially love the keychain that says "I run in marathons, what do you do?"):

The purchased running stuff (water bottle, a shoe bag that folds up into a little pouch, wrist sweat absorbers):

The learn to crotchet kit -- yeah!!!!

I hope you liked the colors of the yarn.  I had a hard time picking them out.  they were all so soft and pretty.  I thought they'd make a beautiful granny square blanket for you.  I thought the orange/pumpkinish one would be great to connect  the squares that's why I didn't make it a granny square.

I got my package today to.  I just got a new camera (ok, my mom gave me her old one) and as soon as I figure out how to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer I will post pics.

The colors are awesome -- so me! (the yarn is so soft and lovely; it will be so fun to work with!)

Thanks again!

I hope you like your stuff, too.

Rock on!

Wow, Beefishie, you crocheted those purses fast! I tried to match the yarn to the FSU colors as best I could, I hope I did alright. The extra little red, blue, and white balls are for the Red Sox colors.

Here's a close-up of a few of the things I sent and the reverse side of the pencil pouch.

AND here is the fantastic MYB I received from Beefishie:

It arrived wrapped up in some beautiful fabric.

And here it is out of the fabric. Check out the cute headband! I love it. And the yarn is gorgeous!

I'll post more pictures later!
