So many wonderful things so far!  I can't wait to get my own box of goodies.

I received today from......Bakeneko!!!

Thank you so much. She definantly picked up the fact I'm obsessed with dead trees (which is why I'm starting my tree swap the end of the month Smiley)

First off is the small. I think I'll hang it on my wall. It's a great tree poem and she printed the tree fabric on her printer.

In case you can't read the poem:
The Dead Tree
My life is a dead tree;
Spring is a mockery to it;
But in the winter is shall bear the snows
And rear aloft its stark and hopeless branches
As braverly as another.

Thomas E. Moore

Next is the medium. A wall hanging of a felted tree shadow. This is definantly going on my wall, probably next to the tree poem Smiley

The large is an etched copper necklace of a turtle. I have no idea how you would even do that! It's really cool.

and a close up of the detail

and then the extras. A great tree leather necklace and some extra printed fabric she wasn't sure what to do with. I think I'll frame them and start a tree wall or something Smiley

Thank you so much, I really appreciate everything.

This swap was so much fun. My stalkee received and now I received, it's weird to think this swap is now over for me  Undecided Good thing there's an exciting gallery to keep watching!!!

Will swap for heart-shaped buttons

I"m so happy it arrived to you!  I was so worried! haha! 

I'm glad you like everything.  I stalked and stalked, but it still always worries me when I send something away! =)

The wristwarmers were a bit big for me, so my husband snatched them up.  They fit him perfectly. Smiley

More great packages!  So excited to receive and also for my stalkee to receive!

i received yesterday! I received from madmommymia and she was totally who I guessed! I think it was because everyone else gave clues on pets or kids and I don't have either! I realize that I had a lot of other options of people that weren't giving clues, but of the people giving clues, she was my guess!

onto the contents! I got such wonderful things!

starburst - because I'm obsessed with them.  I have already consumed this entire package Sad

3 balls of tshirt yarn! I got some in the OWS last round and now I need more so I can make a rug.  I love it so much!

a purse organizer.  I love the colors! And so many pockets! I switch bags all the time, and this will be great to make sure I have all the essentials.

its SOAP with a stapler inside! Just like Jim did with Dwight's stapler in Jello in teh office. 

and she made me a needlework binder! Its so awesome.  the front has like, all of my favorite things

and inside are pockets for hoops and floss and a pocket to keep needles in that says to Boldly Sew haha!

AND there's more!
she made this Dwight notebook that makes me laugh

And finally Chocolate sugar scrub. This smells so good!! I am going to use it tonight when i take a shower.

thank you so much madmommymia!! I hope my stalkee likes what I made too.  I think i will be sending on Saturday.  by the time I get home tomorrow the post office will probably be closed like it was today.

I saw the stapler in the soap and thought, ooh, that's like in The Office when Tim puts Gareth's stapler in the jelly...hehe(I'm a Brit).  Great idea to replicate it in soap.

As children, we all live in a world of imagination, of fantasy, and for some of us that world of make-believe continues into adulthood.
