Count me in too! I'm still churning around in my head all the things I could have done!

I received my stuff from Etheren.  We love everything so much!

This is the Thomas bag everything was sent in.  My son loves trains so it was a big hit.

We also got pajamas with tractors and dumptrucks on them.  Cale kept saying "tracker" and "dunktruck".  I love kid speak.  I can't wait to put them on him.  But I bet he's going to bug me to wear them all the time.  Cheesy 

And he got a pet.  Etheren crocheted a kitty for him.  I couldn't get a better picture because he wouldn't let it go.  But its really cute.  He keeps kissing it and running around meowing with it. 

Thanks for everything Etheren!  This swap was so much fun!   Cheesy

Updated some more feedback...if you have sent and received and your partner has sent and received, you should have positive feedback.

Can everyone please double check that their feedback is updated correctly and let me know if there are any problems? Thank you!

Now am just waiting on slow overseas mail...mine & babyonboard's packages must certainly have passed each other at the halfway point by now! Come on, postal service! Hurry up and give us a reason to get excited when we check the mail!!

I'm horribly impatient...I know. Wink

Everything is fab so far..and looks like no flakers which is rare from what i've seen of other swaps!

I received the swap package today from chicaboomboom! She sent tons of cool stuff for the kids! They were so happy to open it all up!

Everything before opening

William's stuff: a t-shirt with Zatch Bell on the back, a notebook, pokemon pencil case and pencil, some candies, pins

Caden's stuff: a Sesame Street t-shirt, cool 2 piece hawaiian outfit (he loves it!) and these cool hexabit puzzle pieces which he hasn't put down yet!

Brenna's stuff: a beautiful quilt perfect for tummy time, pretty dress, hawaiian nesting dolls, a crocheted frog and little guy

thanks so much for everything!

Thanks for telling everyone! I got a PM a bit ago that she received...
I crocheted a sqeezy sqeeky baseball, and REALLY tried to make a bat to go with, in that process I was left with a stuffie that looks like a canow paddle, and a crochet floppy baseball bat 'pillow' for my kids! I ended up finding a super soft bat that I wish I could have had enough time to crochet a cover for (so it would 'match' the baseball)... oh well... I also sent onsies for the baby on the way, with transfers saying 'I love mom' and 'I love dad'. There was a sticker book, and I made bubbles and playdough. I also sent recipes for those things and a bunch more kids things like our family favorite banana bread, sidewalk chalk, and some others (I can't remember everything I sent Smiley ) We went to a Seattle Mariner's game, and collected some team baseball cards to send off too (their son is into baseball, if you hadn't noticed!). I think I sent some other little things but those were the major things... of course I didn't take pictures, I ALWAYS forget! When I am crafting for a swap, I always finish right through to packaging/addressing before in my mind, I am done. I have taked packages apart to add things before and this time I was a couple days late so I didn't want to delay it any longer!!! Now I keep tape and scissors in the car!!!

Please use the Help Desk for moderator questions.  I'm not currently available full-time.  Thanks!

I'd love to send you some hand spun for a poppet!
