Ooh, lovely soup all!

I was spoiled by Onxynox too!  Look at the all the wonderful beads displayed on my new beading mat that she sent!
Tons of chip beads for my TOLP, beautiful metal flower button, wonderful charms: coins, scissors, leaves, teapot, tree, keys, birdcage, etc., and skully beads!

And a collection of red: cute purse, ladybug beads, crystal hearts, chili pepper, rose, teardrop, bookmark, and....

...a closeup of some of my favorites: HK/dolphin glow in the dark beads and a beautiful handmade mermaid pendant!!  Smiley

Thank you sooo much Onxynox!!  And thank you Jennie for organizing such a great swap!!

Here's my great package from wx2dzug!!

She sent me some great black beads.

Big ones -

And small ones (I'll find a million uses for these!) -

Some very cool stone hearts -

Some light colored ceramic and glass beads - I love the splatter of color in the big round ones.

A soup of small beads (my preferred size) -

Some charms (I LOVE the hands!!) -

A bunch of silver beads and spacers (very useful! Thank you!) -

Clasps! Look at the snake one! I like them all - even the plain one!

Some leather cord, some crazy earring pieces (I'll have fun with these!), and some silver pendants that I'm going to have fun stamping!! Awesome.

And here's my crafted item - a lovely swallow bracelet.

I'm super happy with this haul!  Thanks so much!!!  Grin

I got two soups in the mail the other day!  I am full of soup!!!  It's been a bit busy, between work, committee work, and trying to get my craft room set up, so I have not had a chance to organize it yet - but I love them both...

From watch_it_break - she made me a lovely beaded barrett and it is gorgeous.  I always clip my long hair back out of the way for work, and I can't wait to wear it when I go back Monday.  The colours of the beads are perfect for me - I love the blues so much.  Look at how bright and light those roun ones are!

Here is more of the soup, a lot of pretty pretty glass, and crystal, and I love the shell beads too.

Atsuko wasn't able to join this swap in time "officially" so we swapped soups with each other privately.

These are such cool glass beads.  I love them all - the mushrooms are too too cool, and I think my favourite may be the pear... they are perfect as stitchmarkers.

She sent me a lot of ingredients in her soup - a tonne of glass beads and charms, a gorgeous metal book mark, and so many other things.  The charms are perfect because I already know what I am going to do with some of them for the pendant swap I am in

Thank you both, I love my soups and the crafted items and look forward to using them happily!

Oh wow, more yummy soups! Everyone made out like beady bandits did so well! Grin

Those packages are wonderful.  What a great swap!  I especially like the fruit and mushrooms, barrette, cluster earrings, and the swallow bracelet is really awesome.
