I know the outside of the box isn't as decorated as most of the other boxes, but I didn't want to cover up any of the pretty paper.  it's made to look like pressed flowers and it was just too pretty to cover up.

I unfortunately didn't take more "individualized" pictures of either box (STUPID!!!) but I did get a group shot:


anybody recognize the itty bitty buttons yet?  Wink

and you are so welcome!  Grin Grin Grin

I received from SaraD today!

Her matchbox made me LAUGH when I opened the package.

LOOK!  She sent me a ***toaster*** - complete with a slice of cinnamon sugar toast!  And it even SMELLS LIKE CINNAMON!



How freakin' cool is that?!?!  She must have seen all the toasty goodies on my Wist/Etsy, from the Toast Swap, which I just loved. And I love cinnampn toast!

Group shot still packed up:


Unpacked: Lovely beads, some sequins (I can use these! i have an old project from my grandmother that has lost a lot of sequins, hard to find variety of sequins these days!), little paper origami star, lots of neat goodies.


Some close-ups:  (eeeeee! seal & whale beads!)


A shell she picked up in Mexico (pretty!) and some cute painted itty bitty teensy weensy shells, and I love the "flip off" cap. HEE. (It's from an anesthesia container! I will have to make this into a piece of jewelry to show off at the med school where I work, to get some laughs. Hee.) Oh, and a penny for scale.


THANK YOU Sara!  hee hee!  It's full of Toasty Goodness! WOO!

That Gryffindor bracelet is really neat! I also love kimchery's tatting work, I wish I could make that. And the toaster box is so clever!

I love my overstuffed kitty box from Earthie!!!! And yes, that is my cat's paw trying to snatch my goodies away.





The amazing contents are:
1.) a beautiful necklace with a silver faerie on the side of a bottle containing purple glittery faerie dust.
2.) Big Damn Hero Jayne Cobb pin (I love Jayne Cobb!!!!)
3.) a WoW (World of Warcraft) magnet
4.) Earrings
5.) Embroidery floss
6.) Gold ribbon
7.) Cute little bead

Here's a close-up on the button. I can't believe i didn't take a pic of the necklace /facepalm



I love everything!!! Thank you for being such a wonderful partner!!!

Averia - wished I could see the box better it looks fascinating and I love the colors so much


I hope it is okay that i am posting a different view of the few goodies i sent to Earthie - I think my partner was having issues with the picture posting Smiley Not sure my pic is any better, but it is a different view.

Here's a closeup of the box and stuff I sent to Dnelson (I loved this box so much, I made myself one, too!  Smiley )-She had said she liked Disney, so I went with that theme for the box.  That fabric flower I made with some scraps, since then I've made about 2 dozen more!!


and the contents:


I have a cuttlebug so I got a matchbox die and that's what I used for this swap- it's dimensions are a little larger than a normal matchbox, but it was still easier for me to make than the printed instructions given here!

OMG I wisted the skully box that r0ckwithme received!  What is that made from?  I adore that design.  Skull, butterflies, AND a crown??? It is so me, just needs some pink accents  Wink

The Disney box is super cute too!  I also love all the purple goodies Averia included.  I love the idea of a box themed off a color.

I am envious of all the little keys blupaisan received and the toast is too cute!  Now I want some cinnamon toast Smiley

I have said it before but I will say it again, I am READY for the next round of cuteness!!

Yay! So glad you liked everything! And you can kind of see on the first picture, but the front of the box has a little door and window. Also, since it's COVERED in seed beads it weighs a ton. Okay, not a ton, but close. Cheesy
