So I got unbelievably SPOILED! Monnie31 is amazing. Here are some pics of what I got:

That is a picture of pretty much the entire package:
Gardening apron with matching seed book (LOVE the colours), crafted signs for Veggies, Flowers, and Herbs, the spoons in the upper left are labels for my garden bed and in the lower right are chimes that are going to go on my deck very soon.

Another shot of everything; you can see my seeds that go in my beautiful new seed safe showcased below:

She also gave me new clippers, gardening gloves, garden netting and a small basil starter pot!!!
Finally, here is a picture of some of the beautiful jewelry she threw in because she is awesome. There was a bracelet, necklace charm, and this Tree of Life (have I mentioned how much I loved this package??)

I'm still working on my package to her, but I must admit, she set the bar pretty high!!!
Thanks to my partner and the organizer of this swap Grin

To be happy is to be creating.

What wonderful packages so far!  I am working on my last item.  My work schedule, even though usually it's wednesday-sunday 4p-12a, has changed to a collection of midnights (12a-8a) and random day shifts, due to not enough part-timers, a death in the family of one of our full timers, and not enough people who are medically certified to pass medicine to our residents.  I'm constantly running back and forth, which is why I haven't been able to finish that last item, but I'm taking it with me on tomorrow's midnight shift hehe.

What a great pot maker project! Such a good idea for a bucket apron --- and everything else!! I am especially attracted to the pink baby scarf with the crocheted flower! Great start to the gallery all.

the pink flower is actually a matching headband for the big sister. I am glad you like it though.

I have received from Ranty Hippie and will post pictures tomorrow first thing after sleep Smiley

Here is my awesome package from Ranty Hippie:

A pic before opening it completely

I received:  a handmade apron (with a beautiful eyelet lace design), a cookbook (now I can make cheap meals for myself and my residents at work!), a solar powered dancing flower (not shown in the pictures but will be here soon), a decoupage butterfly jewelry box, a crocheted toilet paper cozy, a cute tree painting (now above my hallway entryway), 2 orange dish scrubbies and one yellow dish scrubbie Smiley  I'm very happy with this swap package and I look forward to sending Ranty Hippie her own package tomorrow afternoon!  Smiley

 Shocked Everything looks great so far!

I received my package from Thelastkodama yesterday and let me tell you she is a very clever girl!

She gave me some homemade detergent that smells so good.  I tried it out already on my sweaty yoga clothes and they look and smell fantastic!  And there were some reuseable produce bags so I don't have to use plastic bags at the market or grocery store, which came just in time as my old ones have all but disappeared.  And this beautiful Obscure Heliotrope soap from milkandhoneynaturals.etsy.com.  It smells like orange and patchouli which is one of my favourite scent combinations.  I wish you guys could smell eveything!

And the very clever part is that there is a scoop for the laundry soap which has a magnet attached so it can stick to the washer.

She also sent these amazing stuffies for my 2 year old son Mason.  Mason loves Toy Story.  So Thelastkodama cleverly went all mad scientist, like Sid in the first Toy Story, and reconfigured 3 of her old stuffed animals.
They are adorable! There's a Bearrit, a Rabmation and a Buppy Bear.

And here's a pic of Mason with his new friends!

Thanks again TLK!!!

Awesome package from Pollyprissypants!  She is sooo good at crochet and very creative!  Here-- just watch!!

Here is the whole package upon opening.

She made a set of three bowls out of recycled magazines.  They are so neat. They almost look like little bird nests! Here they are in my front window with a fresh layer of snow on the first day of spring!

This is a flowerpot made of recycled plastic bags.  My plant loves it and so does my dog!

And love most!!! A grocery bag made of granny squares!!  Such good energy Shocked)

Here is another shot of the extras: soaps, eco hair clips (love them) and ooooorganic yummy chocolate.

Thanks so much pollyprissypants!  I am so thrilled with the whole package- this swap has been so fun.  Grin Cheesy Grin
