My partner confirmed that she did receive her buggy package...

So here it is!

Butterfly earings and a charm bracelet.

Buggy box...it was decorated on all four sides...

Another side of the box.

I certainly hope she wears the jewelry and it fits her style. Smiley

Very cool stuff!  I like those charms, where did you find them?

I am interested in Halloween Rinchies (round inchies) to make bottle cap magnets.

Everything looks good! Beautiful bugs!

My partner, Chibiwakki, got her parcel last week but hasn't had time to post on the thread. Here's what I sent:

Butterfly earrings, beetle bug earrings, 2 laydbug wall hooks, socks with butterflies and beetles on them, bug stickers, dragonfly notepaper, bug sticky transfers, handmade cards with bug stamps.

Hi, here are the nice things I got from Chibiwakki....a crocheted purse with a fancy pink flower and lace butterfly (did you make the butterfly? wow!), a handmade notebook with a bee on it, some stickers and a note. Thanks!

I got it at the local beading shop. I thought they were adorable!

I received a package from groschveux! Filled with wonderful lovely things! Check it out ...

Dainty note cards with sweet bugs, and two buggy buttons:

A fabulous lined blue zipper bag with a grasshopper on it:

And the cutest green corduroy handbag EVER with a fluttering moth applique, lined in a funky black and white pattern, with a snap at the top of the handle and gold rectangle rings (very nice details), and the bag is fastened with magnets (coooooool):

Thank you so much! I love everything!  Smiley Grin Smiley Grin Smiley Grin

She mentioned she just started sewing a few months ago. You may not be able to see from the pictures, but both bags are really well made and you would never know she wasn't a professional with years under her belt. I'm impressed! Wow!  Grin

Bbonnn, i'm glad you like all this stuff!
Thank you for all the nice compliments, you're too sweet!
Rhicooqui inspired me to make note cards.
She was my partner for the "One Tiny Thing round 4 Swap" and she made my the prettiest little cards.
The grasshopper on the blue pouch is called a Lobber grasshopper. I just find that knowing real names for different animals or insects is kind of interesting. It's ok, you can call me a nerd!  Wink
The purse is my favorite, and i'm a little jealous of bbonnn... I think, I'll make a similar one for myself!

I had an awseome time being a swap angel! What a great feeling! Teehee...
