Here is the video of the package I received from my partner! I love everything (especially the bracelet and earring set directly from my wist!) and can't wait to get back into using seed beads! Thank you thank you thank you!

Ok....I now want to see all my galleries in video form. Especially if Dizzer is making the video. The music made it so much fun to watch you display your Bead Soup! Thats awesome!  I love your memory bracelet with pearls.

Love all the beads so far, but I think I like all the crafted items the most. Wink

I'm really sorry I'm so late in posting (as I've had my beads for a while). Life has just been even more crazy than I could have expected.

But! Without further ado! JessySihk sent me some really awesome stuff and her amazing polymer clay charms are too cute!

The jumble! There's everything you could imagine! Glass beads, pendants, charms, ear wires, connectors, spacers, clasps, the list goes on as I keep digging!

I love the little branches! Or they could be veins... whatever I'm in the mood for! Smiley

Some of the metal charms. That cat bead is adorable! He needs a special project.

Aaaaaand... polymer clay!


Look at the detail!

I like food..... Roll Eyes

Pendants. I love the cherry blossom and the simplicity of the last one. She even made the button!

And my toast earrings! I was so excited I wore these to work the next day and I got soo many compliments! They even started a discussion in the break room about why you'd want to wear bread in your ears. Haha, but I love them!

Thank you so much, JessySihk! I can't wait to get some more charms and beads on my bracelet!

I received my lovely bead soup from Funkypork, and I owe her an apology for not posting sooner. I got a true bead soup and there were many lovelies in it! I haven't even had time to seperate them all, and I'm still ooo-ing and ahhh-ing over finds!

Lovely bag of sead beads, charms, metal clasps, an awesome memory wire bracelet and lovely earrings!

So far my favorites have to be the little cube beads in blue with brown edges. Love them! TY so much and again I am so sorry I didn't post sooner.


I love to do personal swaps. PM me! Smiley

I received wonderful beads from darkangelwingz!

The beads include glass and wood. I love the orange beads (my favorite color). There are also a number of beads that are going to be great for making miniature lamps.

She made three great pairs of dangly earrings. I really love the red and silver pair...actually I love them all. (Sorry  the clear pair do not show so well.)

Thank you so much for the package. Thank you so much for hosting the swap Jennie.

What's funny is, I do videos to show swap packages because it's a lot easier than transferring photos from our camera to our other computer and then transferring them via jump drive to this computer (our camera refuses to talk to the mac). Plus I love youtube <3 I love makin videos for my friends who I hardly ever get to see so we can keep in touch more personally Wink

I LOVE all of the polymer clay stuffs! I have such respect for people who work in polymer clay, since I suck at it so bad. Even when I can actually make something that looks awesome, it usually falls apart Undecided

I received from onecrazymom! (I think burntsmore's package for me is waiting at the post office.)

Warning on the package, lol! and the tag I found on my little gifty bag! Love this.

Awesome bookmark and button necklace:

The whole shebang:

Everything is bagged up and sorted by theme...wish I had done this! It's definitely giving me ideas about stuff to make with all my new beads. The wood bracelet is a beautiful color! I really like it just like it is. Maybe it can become an anklet...

Some of my favorites...glass, metal, and shell beads.

And I love this lil fish! Especially his lil eyeball.

Here's lookin' at you, onecrazymom! Thanks for this great package! Smiley

Received an awesome package from burntsmore!

Lookit all the tiny packages and the cute tape!

The gorgeous hemp choker Connie made me with a cute button clasp. Love these colors so much

Now onto the bead loot! I took a billion pictures so I'll put them all as thumbnails.

and an amazing octupus polyclay pendant! I definitely SQUEED when I saw this!

gorgeous glass pendant with calla lilies:

These are all so gorgeous! The little pink crystals look like pop rocks--I almost popped 'em in my mouth! I love all the green colors and the spacers will be awesome to work with. There are two little heads in the fourth picture--weird and cool! Such a great addition to my beading supplies. Thanks so much, Connie!

PS I loved the card and the little piece of your photography! It's in my whimsy shelf.
