I have received an awesome package from hawkeyes_girl on Saturday evening.

An awesome paintbrush roll that I immediately filled with brushes and paper knives that just used to lie in my craftbox. No more digging for tools, yaay!

The group shot of the goodies:

On the left are four magnets with the kitty theme. I was impressed that hawkeyes_girl made one with the poster of "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!". I just mentioned by he way that I joined this swap because I love the movie and voila! - it's on my fridge now. Smiley A lovely self-made polka dot card in Dutch! I didn't expect that. She even translated what she wanted to say. A golden necklace (this one was weird.). When we received the package there was a teaser hanging out of it and that was a half of the necklace. I don't know if anything is missing... A magazine with yummy recipes and tips on how to get rid of extra weight. Cheesy Laminated playing cards ("Memory" game). My boyfriend said that these are for him since if they were for me there would be half naked guys on them. Cheesy And stickers of swallows & flowers. Oh, the feet on the left... I had such slippers in my wist. (I dislike slippers, I like to hang around in socks so it seemed a nice idea how to wear slippers but still feel like these are socks.) When I took them out of the package they looked so small and I was wondering if they are going to fit my troll sized feet. It turned out that they are a bit too big for me. So my boyfriend claimed them as well. He is posing in the picture too. Cheesy

The goodies don't stop here yet.

That is an awesome 40ies style headgear. Needless to say my boyfriend managed to try that one too. And his verdict was that is super handy for baking. (He has long hair so he wears a ponytail while baking.) But I managed to cunningly fight back and said that I want to pose with this one. So we tried to make supercute pictures with me wearing this headdress and holding our cat. But ALL the pictures looked ended up with me either looking like a cat torturing criminal or the cat pawns sliding inside my blouse... At least this one ended up nice.

Oh and there were yummy extras - jelly beans, chewing gum and peanut butter chocolate candies. Since my boyfriend is a chocolate addict he didn't hesitate to try the chocolate ones. After eating half of the candy he said that they taste awful. I completely disagree with him on this. So yaay finally I had my own candies that I don't have to hide from him. He also said that he doesn't like American candies in general. But you can't believe him. He said that with his mouth full of jelly beans. No photos of yummies. That is a proof that they are yummy. Cheesy

Thank you very, very much!

I am sending out tomorrow morning.

Edited (Something was wrong with the pictures)

I received from bellyjewel yesterday. She did an awesome job! First off, I got a bunch of hair doodads and fascinators. Perfect! I've been really into hair accessories this season.
Cute fuzzy bows!

And not one, not 2, but 3 feathered fascinators!

Then there was this adorable cuff.

And, the finale, an apron! I was so glad to get this, because I've been meaning to make one for myself, but never take the time!

Thank you, bellyjewel!
