I got the best package from Smmarrt! She totally spoiled me!

*craftster photo hosting is not behaving tonight so I know i'm missing a few photos, ill try and add them tomorrow!

First the stuffed to the gills box!

Notice the fun paper flower on top? Thats for cinco de mayo and it came with awesome instructions on how to make my own! I love decorating my cube at work for random holidays so I'm definitely doing cinco de mayo up!

Also for cinco de mayo...

not sure why this pic is so dark, but these are awesome little like mini pinatas for holding candy and treats, i LOVE these! She also sent along some m&ms and red hots!! (this is my last week of a personal training program i'm doing and i def had to hide the candy from myself!)

for puzzle day, an awesome mini picture frame! Some cool note pads and a mini snowglobe! All of this stuff stayed at my office! Love the little notes, much better than blue post its!

for my mini snow globe collection! thank you thank you!

For wildflower week (day?) a jar of seed bombs! She made these too!! That is so cool! I cant wait to "wildflower bomb" my neighborhood!

Also a little girl ornament! I dont know how you knew i had a hot pink christmas tree in my cube just waiting for adornment!! Wink

Dangit, craftster photo hosting will not let me upload my most favorite picture! Susan had some of her preschoolers help make these awesome puzzle piece magnets! I think they might be my favorite out of the whole package (except maybe the tissue flowers!) and they look great with my wacky assortment of magnets on my fridge. I'll have to try again tomorrow with that pic!

Susan thanks so much for a GREAT swap!

You received already? Wow, I had them send it 6 day because it was cheaper than 2 day (budget, sorry), but I only sent it Friday! Maybe the girl put the wrong sticker on it or something... I'm so excited!

There are a couple of recipes for seed bombs - mainly UK sites. I ended up just using newspaper and water, I soaked them for a few days and mushed them up with my stick blender. I smushed them into cheapo ice cube trays (from the dollar store) and waited for them to dry. (I actually ended up "baking" them on low heat for 30-minute sessions.) I didn't want the seed to sprout during transit. When the "cubes" dried, they had little valleys on top, so I put the seed there and glued a little piece of paper over the seeds. So when Superstitch hikes or runs, she can throw out a cube or two and watch what happens.

You can make them out of soil but again I was afraid they would sprout or disintegrate during mailing.

Also I forgot to add that after you fill up the mini-chili pepper pinata/holders, just twist shut the tissue paper.

Thanks again for a fun swap. Don't know that I can do each month, but I will be back!
