I think this swap is awesome--so glad you liked everything. Smiley I love giving new life to things that have just been sitting in my craft closet, you know? What a great concept!

Personal swaps... Would love to trade sewn stuff for some cool hand-carved stamps.

I received from Dawnstrees Wednesday and everything is amazng! I'm so sorry I didn't post sooner - it's been hectic here, to say the least. Anyway, on to the pictures:

A ton of fabrics - mostly reclaimed from old clothing. I always reuse wherever possible, including while crafting, so this is right up my alley! I'm looking forward to working with new textures (I typically stick to cotton and jersey), and I love the Japan-inspired shirt!

I'm a VERY beginning knitter (as in, I'm 1/4 finished with my first scarf ever...) but this is inspiration to keep trying!

Lots of things in this picture: Wood crafts, magnets, and cross stitch fabric. I like to paint and don't generally get the chance to so this is great! Also, I love the magnet sheets! Oh do I have plans for these... Wink I was out of the fabric for embroidery, so what good timing!

Cute stickers, envelopes, scrapping/note paper, and dawnstrees' card in the front! The colored paper is heat sensitive, you can see my hand print on it to show the effect - this is so cool! I didn't know that even existed lol.

Rocks from her dh's grandfathers collection - the one in the front left reminds me of a necklace I had as a child. Not sure what I'm going to do with these yet, but they look really cool!

Close up of the card - so pretty! I love the papers you used on this.

Thank you so much for everything, I can't wait to use it!  Grin

Yay! I have been so excited for you to get it and worried that you wouldn't like it! (Just to make myself feel better and let everyone else know - I did PM cxcaitlyn before sending her fabric from old clothes...). The flower on the card is made out of clothing ads Smiley

I received from SloanLaw...Check out my big old box of fabric, felt, yarn, raffia, wood cutouts, scrapbook cutouts, letter stencils, fabric binding (awesome!), ribbon (yeay!), lace, hem facing, and confetti. Love the red scissors fabric and orange and brown floral fabric--I'll have fun quilting with these.

I received my box today from hoboe, I was so excited to receive my first swap package!! Here is what I got.....

Everything together...

All the fabric....I really love the blue and silver one in front, and all of the really. I am excited to figure out what to do with all of them!

Trim, for my purses or anything really, I just have to keep the one with the little balls away form my dog (she is very interested in what it might taste like!)

And finally...

OLD BUTTONS!!! I love the green square ones!

Thanks for a great first swap!!!

WOW! This was my first swap ever, and when my Package from beantown came today, it was like Christmas! She sent me lots of awesome stamps, blank cards, and REALLY COOL pink and brown caddy (my favorite colors BTW), ribbons, scissors, foamies, I love it all! Now I have to hide some things before my daughter gets home, I KNOW she'll be grabbing those cards to decorate for Grandma!

Thank you very much beantown!!!!

Now, can someone explain to me how to leave feedback?
