What a great gallery everyone. I'm going to steal that lego frame idea and the Harry Potter stenciled bag idea. I love the Oscar the grouch, clever creating his magnets from bottlecaps, very thematically appropriate Smiley Love the angry bird mini hoop too! Those Mickey and LSU goodies are great. That Mickey pouch and game was a wonderful idea. I love the Mickey pants.

Amriana, great job on the jewelry and sewing projects.

I'm so impressed with everyone's goodies.

Tucker, I'm sorry you goodies haven't come up. It should be there soon. The tracking number says it's in Dallas right now. Jakob loved showing off his towel at the pool earlier this week, and he brought his Spongebob rock with his rock collection when he stayed with his grandpa for the weekend to show his cousins. 

Landon, we went to see Spider-Man yesterday and everyone was wearing their Spider-Man shirts. (Yes, we are that geeky) Jakob picked out the shirt you made for him. At the end of the movie, he was so excited to see Flash Thompson wearing the exact same shirt. And, earlier this week, we made our own fabric painted shirts using the freezer paper stencils. Thanks so much for the suggestion. He painted a red lego guy on his shirt.

I really enjoy this swap! Keep the pictures coming. Let me know if you'd like me to organize another one and when everyone would be available and if someone would like to co-organize. For the next two weeks, I have summer classes.

So glad that Jakob got to wear his shirt out!  My kids would love to do another round sometime, they had a ton of fun.

Here are the pictures of the goodies Adia received from Zoe. 
Hunger Games Magnets

Lots of Angry Birds Pendants

A really awesome Animal Necklace

A key chain with her name on it that she put on her new book bag.  This is a favorite since we can never find things with her name on them..

Some Twilight Shrinky Dinks

And an Animal A Shirt!  This is such a cute idea!

Thanks so much Zoe and Max!!

Sariah got hers from Ronan.  She loves it all!


Neat necklace:

Sister trying to help hold everything up

All the goods:

She got a stuffed owl toy liked she asked for, she was so excited.  And an owl craft kit and cute bottle cap necklace.  Then lots of Hello Kitty stuff, she's really into HK now.  Some other craft kits and a frame to paint, card games which they've already dug into, and then a painted box that had a feathery hair clip and a foamy bug.

Thanks Ronan!

Sorry for the delay in getting these posted - I wasn't at work yesterday & had forgotten my camera there...  ANyhow~ Here are pictures of my niece Learah receiving her awesome package from dessadoll's daughter on Monday:

Excitedly breaking into the box

Exclaiming "CooooooooooL" as she checks out the decorated box

Modelling her favourite items: the handmade wand (with an "L" charm on it!), the pretty peacock feather hairclip & the super cute bottlecap earrings

Close-up of the handmade goodies: decorated box for her little treasures, feather hairclip, magic wand, personalized mug (which she LOVES) and a mouse toy for her 2 crazy cats

Close-up of the many, many 'extra's: a DIY picture frame & markers, a toy twisty worm (this made her squeal), a reusable shopping bag/frog, Sponge Bob goodies (play kit & tub stick-ons) & THE FUNNIEST book I've seen in ages~ "More stuff on my cat" - this is a book of photos of cats with stuff on them.  Not kidding.  I cracked up when I looked through this Cheesy

Here's a shot of the whole kit - this is an amazing amount of stuff!!!  You can see that Dessa included a sweet note to Learah and there were also some funky glass beads that I'm just realizing weren't in the group shot...  She must have had them in her hand while I was taking pictures.

THANK YOU so much for spoiling Learah like this~  You really went above & beyond!!  I haven't seen Learah giggle, squeal & generally goof around and be excited like that in a while - this package really made her feel special  Grin  Once it all sank in & she could breathe again, she said "Well I hope she liked what I sent for her.  I love the things I sent, but I feel kinda bad because I didn't send as much cool stuff."  We hope that Dessa likes the things that we sent & that we can see her pictures soon, too!   Smiley

Levi got a wonderful package from Emma!

First is a really cool lego box - it has his name made of lego on the side, and a lego top so he can build stuff on there.  Its great because he likes to carry his creations around with him. 

Next, there are some super cute little gnome guys/mushrooms, these are perfect for Levi's playscape table.  He likes to make up stories with little characters like these!  There is also a mini activity book.

Next is a fishing set - this is great because the fish are laminated, which means I can write Levi's sight words or math problems on the back of them with a whiteboard marker, and he can fish for them - they will add some fun to our homeschooling (not sure if that was the intent, but they are perfect for it!)

And this is a little board book that Emma painted with chalkboard paint.  Its a good size for taking in the car and on the go, Levi can write his own little stories in chalk!

Thank you mom2em and Emma!!!   Grin

Emma started playing w/Mr. Potato right away.  She liked everything.

Thank you!

Here are pics of the process of making the shirt:


Levi spent forever on that one with all those layers of paint!

Sooo...all my kids got their packages.  So I am now posting pictures...this will be one very long post, I appologize now.   And I also appologize for the cruddy pics.  We are in the middle of packing boxes and I can't find my camera, so some I took on my cell, and some my 11 year old took.  If any of our partners have better pics, please feel free to post them.

First off, the package Audessa got from Learah. (Audessa will be sending better pics and a thank you card in the mail.)

She loves it all!  The book she already started to write in, the shirt she already wore, and the ceramics are on her dresser.  Change in one, earrings in the other.  And her ipod is in the Brock University case!

I wanted to steal these from her.  Cheesy  But I got the "Uh, Mom, you aren't a kid and your name isn't Audessa, you can't have them."

And  cool Chinese Knot bracelet


Now the packages of the little 2.  Please bear with me, we have recently adopted these 2 kids from foster care, and we aren't allowed to post pictures of their faces online.  I will send pictures to their partners, but for posting pics, I had to be creative with cropping.

Here is Ronan with his package from Sariah. (and the bad pics taken by my 11 year old)

He loves loves loves this stuffie!

Ronan with everything.  He really like the "Mom its a long neck shirt!!!!" and "Mom I can stamp in dinosaur now!"

And now for little miss Jade, and her package from Anna.

"Awe Mom...a stuffed Bunny!"

A super cute dress. (Kinda feeling bad for not making a dress for Anna)

And her whole package. With some cool little shrink plastic jewellery and beads to make a bracelet, and the rest of the extras.

All my kids got spoiled, and feel very blessed to have been a part of this swap.  Thanks so much to all their partners for making them feel special!  Grin



I am always up for a personal swap!
