I received from hablingfrau on saturday. Sorry I am just now getting to posting pics. She sent:

some fabric that I plan on making something for my son with
some colorful felt
a crayon roll for my son
some jumbo crayons
a pattern for felt food (it looks yummy!)
and a really pretty jewelry holder.

Thanks so much for everything, I love it!

I received from crazyda79 on Saturday but was out of town for the weekend. Everything is awesome - thank you so much!

There is a red and black music hoop to match my dining room...

a nautical themed mirror to match my office...

a train picture transferred to wood because I am fascinated by trains (this is at work with me now displayed on my desk)...

coasters of my dogs and others because I love dogs...

a Halloween frame for my favorite holiday...

grape-themed pot holders to match my kitchen...

a notepad because I always keep lists, a passport holder in case I get to visit a French-speaking country, and a football decoration with my husband's team and mine...

a set of glasses with a Boy Meets World theme (what a great idea and addition to my glass collection - love BMW)...

awesome fabric to add to my in progress African Savannah quilt.

Thank you again, crazyda79!!

I'm glad you like the goodies.  Glad they arrived in one piece.  I get so nervous sending glass.

I got a great package from Whistley! I am wildly impressed with a) how many facts about me she managed to incorporate into each item (even more than my as-yet-unsent package to her - sorry Whistley, it's coming!!), b) how well matched each item is for ME, and c) how super fab this package is!!

Item 1, based on:
19.   I grow vegetables in containers on my balcony, and have taught workshops on urban gardening. This year Im going to grow even more.
31.   I go to the farmers market almost every week.
32.   I go the library sometimes more than once a week.
33.   Big and sturdy tote bags are always useful for me, as are other market-going bags.
88.   This spring I intend to forage for wild edible foods.
.... A big, sturdy, veggie tote bag!

Item #2, based on:
18.   I am also collecting embroidery hoops (in hoopla swaps in particular) for a different wall.
61.   I have a particular obsession with the British Regency Era, including Jane Austen and historical romances
70.   Im into (bad?) puns and short jokes. I sometimes do a #fishjokeoftheday on Twitter.
84.   Downton Abbey is also super cool.
100.   I dont have cable, but will often binge-watch shows on Netflix. Just finished Bones (all 9 seasons), and starting on Ripper Street and Longmire (both also great). Other favourite shows include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Game of Thrones, Scrubs, Jericho, Castle, Hell on Wheels, Being Human (UK version), and Downton Abbey.
.... a pun-erific Downton Abbey hoop!

Item #3, based on:
36.   My favourite colour is probably eggplant purple. Teal/turquoise is also super fab. In wearables Im also lately into mustard yellow.   
41.   I also like nautical themes such as tall ships, anchors, and octopi/squids
75.   I dont like things that are too pretty, girly, or feminine. At least not in a traditional way.
..... a purple octopus hat! (OMG this is amazing)

And the finale, based on:
9.   I keep a travel blog for my big trips http://traveljess.wordpress.com
10.   Ive visited 20 countries so far, and want to see the entire world. 
21.   I have no pets, but I especially love cats. I will probably get one again soon.
22.   I really like pigeons. I had a nest of them on my balcony before, and I named them. 
.... a traveller pigeon! Wink My favourite item, since it is SO ME and so unique (You don't know it of course, but I have a brown satchel of my own that looks just like this fella's).

Thanks so much Whistley, this is all so great! Good job figuring me out. Wink

I was totally thinking to myself today, "Why haven't I seen a gallery for the 100 facts swap?!" Well, I wasn't paying attention. This gallery is awesome!!!

Psyche! I'm glad the hat fits! It looks great on you. I'm glad you like everything. It was all made just for you! Smiley

As for everything I just caught up on, I love the chocolate box! The Up pendant! Wow! I love this gallery!

Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Awe thanks!  I think my stash is so big that it makes it easy.  Plus I had the perfect partner for this.  We like alot of the same things and I am always picking up stuff just because it is discounted so big I just know I can send it as extras somewhere along the way!

Great gallery wanting to see more......my package should be here soon!

I also received on Saturday - but have been lax at posting pics - my apologies! I received a lovely package from Deadbathducky, thanks hon I enjoyed swapping with you! Here are pictures (earlier than I said I know!)

A book of Australian Crafts - I LOVE craft books

A very pretty purple and black ribbon bracelet - this is too pretty to be used as a bookmark - so I have decided it can be a bracelet instead Smiley

A very pretty dragon to go in my collection:

A purple and black ribbon wreath which is going to go on our 'wedding shelf' full of knick knacks from our wedding last year

A gorgeous purple cow - I LOVE it's horns which deadbathducky made from some pendants

(I thought I may have to give this to my mum (she collects cows - but no chance I am keeping it!)
A beautiful purple necklace

A cat gift tag / card decoration which I love - but which my husband finds freaky cos apparently it looks like a moomin....he married me for crying out loud, we know he has no taste! Tongue

A fairy bottle which is very pretty, and I also got an empty bottle of the same size which I will turn into something!

Pretty paper

I also got a stencil for the dragon she made me so I Can make my own -s ome purple card blanks, and some wilbby wobblys which WERE delicious - but didn't make it until I was doing photos - sorry!
Thanks again Deadbathducky - I hope you get your parcel soon!

I now have an Etsy shop selling my genuine gemstone wirework jewellery - Pretty Twisted Gems
