 Cool   Oops!  I forgot to mention that Sejimara also included a packet of these nifty little thank you note cards that look like marbleized notebooks, with a pencil writing the word 'notes'.  So cool!

Grin  I received from my partner, Sejimara!  Grin  (I am unable to post photos; Sejimara will do so (thanks), but I wanted to list all the goodies I received from her.

Keep in mind that Sejimara and I have been partnered together in THREE SWAPS so far  Cheesy, and she NEVER disappoints!

This swap package was like a showcase for all of her different skills!  Here goes:

1)  The cutest little ladybug hat with eyes on the brim!  My six year old has taken it over and will be wearing it tomorrow for the Fourth of July!

2)  A green dishtowel that I "think" she embellished with yellow and orange sewn lines on it...it still has the tags on and looks so perfectly done that I'm not sure.... Wink

3)  A photo frame that she painted silver (always useful!)

4)  A photo album that she covered with summer themed paper...I love the paper and this item will also be very useful as I have been asking all my swap partners to send me postcards from their area so that I can start collecting them...I plan on using them as a teaching tool with my preschool students eventually...till then, this will be the perfect place to keep them!

5)  A perfect little nine space shadowbox that she painted white and embellished the sides with scrapbooking paper (Does that paper look familiar??   Cheesy).  Inside, she made me four inchies in themes of things I like!  She also included blank, painted inchies for me make!  My girls already got out their stickers and decorated them!  Beautiful!

I wish my local dollar store had such cool stuff to work with!  Thank you again, Sejimara!
I am so glad you like everything.  I did not make that awesome dishtowel, but the colors reminded me of you and I really wanted to whip it into a change purse, but that didn't happen.  I got the idea for the hat off the internet and I know you love ladybugs, glad your Dtr like it too.

I just got a great package in the mail from Britness!!!  This is great.  There were 2 bags (could be used for a tote or purse...super cute), a dishtowel with a ribbon sewn on so I can tie it to the oven handle (super cute and handy), a nice plastic snap top box with 3 mini boxes, the mini boxes had my kitties initials on em and kitty toys!!!  

Glad you liked them...BTW the dish towel is actually a apron....i have one like that comes in handy when baking and need to dust off hands...The mini boxes are supposed to be little treat boxes...i was gonna put treats in each but forgot...The blue and white tote I made out of a cute place mat.

I received from Cxcaitlyn!  Here are pics of my Awesome stuffs!  BOY did she research me good!

My favorite first! The Tote bag of combined doggie and internet speak GOODNESS:

HAHAHAHA it's so awesome and funny! The dog is embroidered, complete with dual-colored collar! Sweetness! =D  It was based on this photo:  GENIUS!

There's also two plushies:  A little green monster:


and a two-headed Elephant! Hee hee!

I think I'll call him Jean-Claude!  XD!

And last but not least: A framed earring-holder!  It's backed with foam so I can just stick the earrings right in there.

The note that came with it!  Sorry for sidewaysness:

You absolutely need a pixel, Cxcaitlyn! See miniaturedalmatians.com for more infoz on dat. ^_^

THANK YOU so much! Very creative use of dollar store stuffs, and MAN you hit the nail on the head when it comes to "Stuff-skullseamstress-would-like"  !!!!

Thanks a million!  =D   <3
