I received from Gozer yesterday but due to a foot of snow and wind storms I couldn't get home amazingly though the post office did deliver it! She was a first time swapper but I don't think she had anything to be nervous about the package is wonderful!

Here is everything!

The wonderful well made purse with tons of interior pockets for cards and such. Chap stick, some wonderfully smelling bath gel, a pack of gum, a travel pop up brush and mirror, large bag of hard candies, 2 post it note books, a note pad, a journal,  a reusable snack bag, a small coin purse, a wonderfully smelling candle, 2 skeins of fun fur, an artists pad in a carry case with 4 artists pencils and three adorable magnets covered in bunny fabric since we discovered we both have bunnies!

inside showing all the separate card slots and zippered pocket

an open interior pocket on the other side

the reusable snack bag and matching coin purse

The bunny fabric covered magnets that I couldn't get a great shot of but this was the least blurry

Thanks so much Gozer you were a fabulous swap partner!

I received the most wonderful package from Rainysunshine789.
Forgive me for all the pics I am about to post. I tried to limit myself but there was just too much awesomeness. Grin
First and foremost the purse . ..

I love the fabric bands, I think they must have been inspired by what was actually my favorite purse on my wist  Cheesy. I can see the inspiration but with the cute fabric and longer shape it is clearly one of a kind.  It is a smaller shoulder bag, like I requested, but the length means that I will still be able to fit all sorts of things inside it. It closes with a zipper, is fully lined and the inside even has a pouch for my phone. The horizontal stripe looks cream in this pic but it is actually a very delicate yellow and white floral print. This fabric also serves as the lining (little picture since I have so many more to post).

Next are these fabulous pouches. Rainysunshine789 printed these fabrics to customize them with two of my favorite themes: Tetris and the Princess Bride. I love the triangle button. The Tetris pouch has hand sanitizer inside.

I also received this large shopping tote. Don't you just love the fabric? Plus it has extra long handles, which are so much better than the ones you can buy. Now I can carry my heavy shopping goods on my shoulder and still have my hands free to open doors and such.

Finally a cute little owl wallet, a key hook, a notebook, two fun pens and a lovely note.

Lastly a pictures of all the goodness together.

Thank-you so much RainySunshine. Everything is so nice, and very well made. I just know I am going to get so much use out of my new purse!

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

I'm so glad you liked everything!  You are correct about the inspiration, but I tweaked it a bit to add some dimension.  I really like the way the shape turned out, too.   I had that little button just lying around (my mom actually bought it, probably sometime in the mid-nineties... she used to make all our clothes) waiting for the perfect opportunity, and the tetris pouch seemed a perfect fit for it.  Fabric printing was actually quite simple and exactly what I needed to personalize some fillers for you.  I'm so glad you like it all!!!

Btw, I received Friday, and everything is SO perfect.  I immediately put my stuff in that purse and have been using it since.  I'll add pictures when I get home Sunday night.  Thank you so much!!! You were a great swap partner.

WOW THIS HAS BEEN AN EXCITING WEEK FOR ME.  I RECEIVE 3 AWESOME PKGS FROM 3 SWAPS.  Today I got my pkg from polkadotts (you go lady) who did a great work.  I had my concerns at first but they were all laid to rest by her(GOD) pkg.  Just a side note this box was reused for 2 swaps.

The pkg opened and a handcrafted card {nice touch}.

All my goodies that were inside the box. Those gummie savers did not last 4 mins with my mom, jaloux and I  Shocked.  I really like the heat sac I sure needed a new one.   

Items wrapped with the lavender paper

Items wrapped with the pink paper (wonder did the swap I organized Fridge Magnet {4 for 4} Swap inspire these fun magnets).  I rush and put them on my file cabinet!!

Thanks for all the awesomeness of this pkg polkadotts!!
