OKAY, I'm back with heaps of piccies (sorry dial-up users! But she just sent so much Grin)

Seriously, I had the most AMAZING time going through this package, as I told seaofstars, I'm real sick, stumbled out the front door to try and find the missing newspaper and tripped over this wonderful package! You should have seen me opening everything, my goodness, I was going crazy with delight, I got SO SPOILT and she just got everything so right, what a mind reader! Cheesy These pics totally don't do everything justice, but I love, love, love EVERY SINGLE THING in the package...she sent so many goodies and they were all wrapped up SO nicely, even the box had gorgeous stuff all over it, so here we go! Wink

Okay first...we decided to sent each other a little something from each of our countries, I got 4 awesome tins of Altoids to play with (YESSS!!), as well as Sour Starburst chews and 2 Wonka strawberry Taffy bars (Oh my gosh, am I in love...you will notice that there were only wrappers and a few starbursts left to photograph Tongue) She also sent a great letter on the cutest stationary with a paper doll envelope!

Next we have 2 bits of PRINTED felt *sqeal* Grin 2 rolls of gorgeous ribbons,one with rainbows and one with summery umbrellas, cocktails, olives etc. and 'up and away' badge from her awesome project and store, also 2 GORGEOUS covered buttons also from the store (awesome packaging!) A great decorated box with knit, purple and sew SCRABBLE LETTER magnets inside! Woohoo, I have so wanted some of these, which I haven't said ANYWHERE *twilight zone theme song*

Awesome fabrics!! The two on the left are my absolute fave's, mum's been trying to steal the other dots off me but I wont let her Tongue

Right: The softest yarn I have ever felt, I am so in love with it, I keep picking it up and feeling its softness, lol, and a Patons pattern booklet (I'm so making warm, soft legwarmers out of them!)

The most FABULOUS needle roll ever created, I love the fabrics to death, she got this just right! Smiley

Lined zipper pouch (woohoo!) with the fab 'up and away' bird appliqued on it, I love this bird, I've seen it so much in the store and have been coveting it for ever!

Now... for the peir de resistance (How on EARTH do you spell that? Tongue) CRAFTING APRON! *hyperventilate* Grin Grin It's grey with PINK stitching and two amazing appliques you are so damn neat Rach!) and it is so cute and frills out from the waistband and the pockets are LINED with the same gorgeous fabric that the strap is made of, and it is SO sturdy and yummy!

(Please excuse my un-animated poses, I had a whole scenario planned, flitting around the craft-room like a bee in my new apron, but was too dark, so grabbed mum and headed outside...god I need to teach that woman how to use a digital camera...what you see here is me majorly pissed off after 10 hours of her trying to take a photo and the camera turning off a million times because she was too slow Tongue UGH, LOL, so this is me in 'TAKE THE FRIKKEN PICTURE' pose Wink and the obligitory butt shot.)

and last but definitely not least, here are the gorgeous tags she made for my goods (which SO are not being given away, call me greedy but... Tongue) Aren't they fabulous.

As you can see on the right I've already used some ribbon to jazz up my staff ID and swipe card (edited so as not to reveal my true identity Tongue)

*Takes deep breath*

seaofstars, again, thank you SO MUCH, you just totally rock my world, words can't say enough.

 Grin thank you so much for posting pics my little miss meshell!! I really appreciate it, things are so hectic or'here.

I'm tickled pink that you like everything as much as you do! Your apron looks super cute on you, as does the ribbon on your i.d. badge/card.

And you better believe I want to see those legwarmers when you're finished!  Wink

Hey guys!
I just gave Cortag04 feedback since she asked and seaofstars is MIA. While I'm at it anyone need feedback for this swap? If so PM me with a link to either the gallery or swap thread proving you sent, and I will get it done.

Sorry I've been absent! Can't wait to chill with you all again Smiley
Anyone want to swap alphabet ATCs?
