I've received my package from beefishie today!

Here's everything in one picture (the purple paper underneath is what the box
was wrapped in):

A close up of the can, and the lid:

Ornaments of a gingerbread man, a star, and a Christmas tree.  The wreath is a Christmas colored
hair tie (thank you beefishie for correcting me!):

A scarf (which will be great considering how cold it is here.):

10 gift tags:

A stocking ornament:

A bookmark (that will be used a ton, I'm always reading.) and a cute note:

And candy canes, cinnamon sticks, Wonka candy, and Ghiradelli Chocolate Peppermint coffee!

Thank you so, so much Hannah!  I love it all!  I can't wait until you get my package!

I received from my partner kjbaloo
The can... it is wrapped in metal and scrolled on. "ain't it purdy"

Stuff in the can, The Bow that is not felt I beleive is hand Crochet, The Flower has a copper scrubby in it for dishes

The stuff in the little bags in the can, 3 book thongs and Farmville rocks now is only I could figure out how to use the wishing ring on my online crop. 4 ornaments two are crochet snowy flakes

Stuff in the box. 2 ornaments. and a dolli I never owned one but my mom has the ones that were made by my Great Grand Mother. so now I have one too I even know were I am going to place it. I have not figuer out if this is a belt or a skinny scarf but the colors are awesome.

Next is my Most favorite thing in the box a super long magnificent scarf.

The awesome bow  hair clips that were promptly stolen by a purple haired troll that came out of her cave when she heard I received a swap box. I have been told that troll infestations last 18 years at which time they move on to find different cave dwellings but I don't beleive this because the Boy troll is turning 20 on the 28th. His cave is in the Basement.

I received from ntrebleagain this week. Lemme show you:

I received a cute paper ornament.

And some festive holiday rings.

I received a fun crafty extra--one of those foam crafty kits. My 3-year-old and I spent a good hour playing with these. Wink She hogged all the good stickers but we managed to get them put together. I've never done one of these kits before but I would actually highly recommend one of these kits if you have small children. My daughter had a blast with it and it's a nice--no fuss, no mess kind of project. We like messy stuff too but sometimes mama gets tired....

I received my first crafty altered-art Altoids tin. I thought it was pretty neat  and well done. Smiley

Here's a group shot. I received several glittery gift tags and a bunch of buttons.

My 3-year-old daughter did deconstruct my Altoid tin a bit. (She deconstructs a lot of things these days. It' makes me crazy!!!) She tore off the front cover. Naughty girl! But we did some recrafting using some of the buttons from this swap. Smiley I added a photo of the movie poster from It's a Wonderful Life and we hung it on the tree!  You could probably do a pretty sweet--12 Days of Christmas calendar with Altoid tins. It's a perfect place to hide little treats.

Thank you partner. Happy Holidays to you, your family and the rest of you crazy Craftsters!

I almost forget to mention--there was a broken plastic ball, some felt and polyfil in the can. Not sure if those went together or were just extras...
