Wow, great packages! I love the owl mug cozy!

I received today!!! Cheesy Thank you bedheadchic! Pics come later

Here we are with my awesome package from bedheadchic:

The worn accessories are a turban style headband and a scarflet, both made of really soft chunky wool

The hot drink accessories to customize my drinks: Lavender and vanilla sugar (they smell heavenly!) and chai spiced milk which is soooo good! I could bath in this stuff, really! I'm afraid I have to beg for the recipe! Grin

And the drinks: I got bournville cocoa (yumm! And it's fairtrade, too!!), rose scented black tea, orange blossom earl grey, hot chocolate in sachets in many yummy flavours (Belgian choc, outrageous orange, jazzy ginger and mint madness.. Roll Eyes ),hot chocolate on a stick and Starbucks VIA Ready Brew Colombia and Italian roast. These could become very handy, I think... Because the coffee we get at university is.. well.. you know, caffeteria coffee...

Thank you so much, Charlotte!  Kiss This swap was so much fun and you've been a great partner! Kiss

What awesome packages! I am so impressed with the customized sugars! And the tea cozy, and are those slippers that Miss Barbara got??

blushingbluegrass, no, those are the slippers that I made for dharma_rebel, that I can never seem to get sized right.  Well, at least I know now to size them at least a size smaller next time I make them.  The pattern must run big.

dharma_rebel, please tell Marley (I love that name!) that I actually did wear the tea cozy as a hat, but that I couldn't see where I was going!  She is adorable, and I'm so glad I actually got to see Stuffing.  She doesn't look like what I pictured in my head.

Customized milks for the drinkables???  What a nifty idea!

Oh, and dharma_rebel, your hat and wristwarmers are made from handspun and hand-dyed yarn that I swapped with freestyle for in one of the IYP swaps!  It's so soft, isn't it?

I've finally caught up reading the posts in the gallery.  There are some terrific swap items being sent around...and I can't wait to see when tamalam gets hers.  I wish that I would have seen the extension on so's...I didn't make it into Leaves n' Beans for some flavored coffees...my car has been out due to an accident in early January...and DH hasn't taken me so far.
I did manage to get the wearable finished and sent the same day...=]
*hoping that everything is liked/loved*

Great job ya'all on the sewn and stitched items and the coffees/teas/cocoas seem very tasty!!
I'm normal.. the rest of you are crazy!

I love the ruffled scarf!  The pattern looks batiky.  Also, how cute are those cup cozies!  ha ha I would definitely need instructions..cute how they were done!  Great job!

The owl cozy is adorable...it certainly would brighten up anyone's morning!

Miss Barbara--the hat and wristwarmers look so soft and cozy!  The hat is a terrific style as well!  I am also bad at judging slipper sizes unless it is for my own feet where I can measure as I go! Smiley  They are cute and I am sure will be lovingly used!

Also, what a cute idea to make homemade sugars and creamers!  So nicely packaged with labels!  I will have to add that to my list of things to do!  oh--lavendar sugar!  I am not proud--I will BEG for that recipe! Cheesy

The gallery is making me warm inside!  Wonderful to see so many different things!

I recieved from Michela today!
I got a wonderful keyhold scarf, a tea pouch with some of her favourite teas inside, some chocolate flavoured tea called "Read my Lips" and she added some tea filters so that I could enjoy loose leaf tea for the first time! = )

The whole lot

The scarf, in my favourite colour!!

Super cute tea bag-bag in another of my favourite colours and the cutest pattern = )

And finally the tea! The description says that it's "better than dessert and more reliable than sex" it also contains little candy lips! Needless to say, I can't wait to try it!!

Thanks again so much Michela!
