My package from Crazyda:

La Sierra shirt, Navel orange journal and some candy (not all of it made it home to be pictured >.> ) and a bumper sticker!  Thanks Crazyda!  Smiley

And I picked up a second partner halfway through.  So, from AprilInAutumn:

Close up of the logo on the shirt.

The necklace she made, a map of Orange and it has Cleveland St!

So xTroublex stepped in and subbed as a swap partner for me, which was awesome.

Here are the goodies:

It's kind of hard to see in the light, but it says Welcome to Fabulous Akron Pizza, Chicken and Jojos served daily.  Love the colors!

IMAG0547 by April in Autumn, on Flickr
The card is a picture of the trail to Icebox Cave, which I have been to many times.  She handcarved the Ohio stamp and the other two objects are Goodyear erasers.  Goodyear's headquarters are in Akron.

Thanks, xTroublex!

Ooo, I like the color of that shirt too!

Well, that's all folks! Great packages, everyone! I hope you all had a great time swapping!

Let's do this again sometime, shall we?

I've got a whole new list of places to visit!  And I'd love to play again.  Around here though many things are seasonal... so spring would be better for me!

Super super duper-etc late post.

After a long transit (I'm pretty sure they strapped this package to a turtle to get it out here) and a gnarly week of barfing (which made me cancel ALL of my brithday plans last week), we finally have pictures of the awesome stuff that Starfire sent me! She pulled from both Illinois and the Missouri area for the swap.

Pumpkin butter and apple cinnamon jelly from local farms. I have been chomping at the bits for a taste of these things but have had to wait because rich foods were killing my tummy.

Information and fun things to do in the area. Plus a totally yummy box of candy since it seemed fall like.

Post cards an a magnet from things in her area. Let me tell you something about that little ballerina on the bottom left. She is a bronze statue from an artist named Degas. When my husband and I just started dating one of the first things we did as a couple was got to an art Museum in southern California. This little dancer was part of one of the exhibits at the museum the time that we went. That was about 6 years ago and this November will be our 3 year marriage anniversary. I'm planning on using this postcard as the card I give him for our anniversary. =)

This postcard makes me giggle. Something about the old style font.

A close up of the shirt she sent. It is a cut jar of horseradish, but doesn't like to photograph very well. It was a little too big for me, but it fits my husband very well! According to her letter 80% of the worlds horseradish comes from the area she lives in. 

And my favorite part of the whole package. MY FIRST HOOP! It is a lovely little pink dogwood blossom that apparently grow all over Missouri. The fabric is kind of hard to see, but there is a lovely pattern on it. I was so happy when I opened this up and was beaming all day. The stitches are so pretty and will be hanging up on my wall soon so everyone can see it.

And a bonus picture of my cat making a crazy yawning face while I was taking pictures outside. lol.

Pumpkin butter and apple jelly plus a giant bottle of ketchup? Oh my gosh I need those things!

At first I thought perhaps USPS had taken to employing dolphins to deliver your package but turtles makes much more sense. Sheesh.

But, oh, so much yummy goodness. I wouldn't have minded if the package somehow made its way over to me  Grin

Oh yay, nothing broke!  Turtle use must be part of the USPS budget strategy.   ~_^ 

Gr33nt3a, I love your connection to the ballerina!   She lives at the St. Louis art museum, and I never knew she was sent out to visit elsewhere.  I just have memories as a kid of seeing her in some textbook at school then being shocked when I saw her in person at the museum.  She has always been a favorite of mine.   Its awesome that the card is going to be gifted to your husband.  <3

Glad you liked all the goodies.  'Specially glad everything got there!   Grin

I can do personal swaps!  ^_^

That hoop is really great! And I too love the ballerina. I grew up doing ballet and love Degas!
