Kiwimonkey, You are so spoiled!! 

You're right I AM so spoiled!  Carrie completely spoiled me!

The fruit is amazing!

The fruit IS amazing!  It's even more amazing than the pictures show. The orange and banana especially!  The texture on the orange is spot on. It makes me want to cut it open and eat it!  Don't get me wrong, the grapes and strawberries are awesome too! But I'm just flabbergasted by the orange!

yirq!!!!!! you totally rock! I got my package today, i love it!
I felt bad about maybe not being so stalkable, so i tried to post things i liked etc, and you got it all 100% right!

Ok girls, check out all the great stuff i got!

First, i got some amazing yarn, 4 skiens of it!!! It's very soft and fluffy.Smiley the hot pink one on the end is my favorite. I am already scheming about what i want to make out of it.

Fabric!!!!! yeah! I need to add to my stash:) I am impressed with the MLP fabric, you must have seen that i am doing the custom MLP swap too! I'd share but i dint want to give it up. The HK fabric is sooooo cute! i am going to make a stocking out of it!

yummy! i am eating the candy now! check it out, even the candies are shaped like hello kitty.

beads! jewelry making is my newest obsession. I cant wait to make earrings and a necklace out of these:) i love them...ha! and they match my pj pants.

mmmm......hk pokey!

and last but not least i got a puppet! Check her out,,,she is adorable!  I'll take a action shot of her at her new home soon, i just wanted to show everyone how cute she was! She even helped Yirq make her the cutest thing, her own hot pink tote bag. It is so little and perfect...

Thank you so much Yirq! I love every bit of it, its sooo me. you did an amazing job:)

Eeeeeee! mjadams and kiwimonkey, you guys got spoiled!
I'm so impressed by the polymer clay fruit, craftycarrie! (I just tried to make some fruit minis today and it was a sad time...)
Also, yirq, where on earth did you find hello kitty pocky? I've never seen those containers before, they look like the yan yan kind... (I'm an asian junk food connoisseur!)

Wow! Totally awesome gifts!  Everything is so well done and so thoughtful!

I'd have to say this is the best swap ever.

I have serious swap anxiety now after seeing that!

My package is on its way to a state where people have a strong native accent!  Wink

I received an amazing package in the mail today from Awynkoop (Amanda)! She really did a wonderful job at stalking me. Here are the photos(which don't do justice).


On the left side is a wonderful canister filled with different types of tea (one of which I am drinking as I type this), the top is an infuser which I have been desperately wanting. She sent me items to make microscope slide pendants (glass, silver tape(?), beads and some nice pieces of yarn). Included was also some nice orange beads, dark red leaf beads, silver toggles, and magnetic clasps(very neat I have never seen them before).

She knitted me a fulled (I am such an incredibly novice knitter I don't even know what it means) gray hobo bag. On top of the bag is the amazing wrist warmers she made me in my favorite colors (orange and green).
At the bottom of the photo are hand made note cards she and her daughter made. They are perfect. She also included Bert's bees hand salve so I can have nice soft hands after a day of digging.

Close up of the fulled hobo bag. It is her own pattern! (Guess what! It also doubles as a hat...hehe I am such a geek).

Close up of the wrist warmers (can only show one hand..camera in the other). They fit perfectly!

These are the awesome note cards(w/envelopes). I will want to keep them and not use them...maybe I will frame them...hmm that would look good on the kitchen wall.

Amanda also wrote a really nice letter explaining each item she made and why she chose it. I am so pleased and proud of my new items. They were exactly what I wanted.

Thank you so much Amanda.

P.S. I did share a cup of tea with my sister this evening as I showed her all the wonderful things you sent.
