hahaha!  i was so confused seeing my card on the screen.  then I realized who your partner was. 

i love the washcloths.  the color looks vibrant and fun.  handknit washcloths are so lovely. 

and i love the big earrings and the buttons (swoon).  Smiley

"...buttons (swoon)" indeed!

Love those dangly earrings.  Seeing those I want some just like it with yellow and deep magenta roses on them, like my china pattern!!  And yes, knitted dishcloths are always perfect!

If you are interested in making me some knitted dishcloths, contact me for a swap!  I'll sew you something or gift you with supplies!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

So I apologize in advance for the massive overload of photos, but I got the most AMAZING package from Foxy Sam and love everything in it!

First off a picture of everything, or at least the best picture of everything I could get. A few things got chopped off, but never fear there are tons of close-ups to follow.

Things Sam keeps in her purse: Kleenex (inside of a crocheted Gonzo tissue holder and the kleenex come out from an opening under his nose!  Cheesy) and hand cream.
Something sentimental: Troll doll (who is now sitting next to Dorothy, Scarecrow, Lion and Tinman on my shelf)
Something related to her favorite holiday: Christmas ornament.
Some thing made with paper: note cards (at the bottom and kinda chopped off  Roll Eyes)
Something with favorite animal: lizard painting
Something you wear on your body: friendship bracelet
Something she likes: A faerie phone charm and a Mowbray stuffie who is adorable!
Something related to yarn: Crochet turtle and one of the first stars she did with the white fluffy yarn

Something related to favorite crafts: Blue fuzzy yarn, stamp and metallic ink pads and coin charms
Something local: two Maori necklaces, a note pad, a magnet and a window cling, oh and a t shirt

Summer (and winter) essential: Blue polar fleece blanket with sparkly flower and leaf decorations on each corner for cuddling in the winter and picnics in the summer
Something paper (er, can't remember exactly what this falls under) Handmade note cards I mentioned earlier

Something edible: All sorts of yummies! Kindereggs, chocolate covered pineapple, coconut covered marshmallows, chocolate/orange thingys, and something else, the Raffaels.
(And you can see a New Zealand tshirt and magnet)

And I saved the best for last (though the Kindereggs def. ranked high as did Gonzo and....well lots of things) But the one that made me squee! Though sadly my camera didn't want to take a really good photo of it.....

Wizard of OZ hand painted t-shirt! This is the back with the Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man. The front has Dorothy and Toto! can you believe she didn't draw them first and this was just straight painted on the shirt! Sam, if you have a betterd picture of the t-shirt please, please, post it because it really is amazing!

Thank you so much Foxy Sam! This is an amazing first package and has given me more ideas for the next packages!

I think I want that Gonzo pattern. Foxy Sam would be a cool partner to have, if I ever voluntarily (short of angelling) sent overseas.
