Oooh - I love purple!
I put in mostly - um - teal? I think. (I know what I put in, it's just the name I'm blanking on right now) And then I added a few native american bone beads that I got recently.
Now I'm really looking forward to seeing what's in the package.
Oh, I put in some of my lovely teal crystals. And some of my oh-so-edible tangerine Czech rondelles. And a couple of gold czech chessboard faceted beads. I love those; they look just like disco balls! I tried to put in a really nice variety so whoever got my beads could have some fun. I even incuded some crystal crackle glass which I adore working with. Plus a couple of focal beads. Uh-oh, I hope I'm not spoiling somebody's surprise!
Now I'm really getting eager to see what I get :D
I can't wait to see how this swap thing works. I just imagined we would all get the same assortment of beads. It sounds like maybe not. I can't wait.
Val's beads came today!
I have sent everyone an email and I will be mailing out the completed kits this weekend ;)

yeah! I am excited, this means, I will get my Package before I head out on Vacation. Not likely will be doing alot of beading, With Grand-Daughters Wedding and all. It will be fun to take along new stuff.
Thanks, Again Christina, for doing this exchange.

Have the kits gone out yet? Just wanting to know when to start bugging the mail man .
Just to let you know that I am on vacation and won't be home until mid August so I won't be able to post right away when my beads arrive. I also will be without Internet most of the time so won't be able to even check in.
Yipeee! I got my Package today. Thanks to everyone who shared. I am so Excited! I can't play until I finish my current project for a Friend.
Ps. the Silver Bow is suspose to be Sterling Silver. (I don't know how to check it tho)
Enjoy! and Happy Beading. (Psst Thanks again for Hosting this swap!)
Mary, I am happy you got your box...everyone should get theirs soon
My beads are here, my beads are here!
Well...actually....they came yesterday, but thanks to that AWFUL electrical storm we had I wasn't able to sit down and have a nosey, because frankly- I was in fear for my life and holed up in my basement apartment with no power. We had some tornados touch down too. It was SCARY!!!!!
I got a chance to look them over today, though, and.....ohboyohboyohboy! I am going to have some serious fun! Can't wait to see what everyone else thinks up, too! Mary, I LOVE the bow! I might make a fun headband with it! Christina- thank you SO much for filigree! I'm already getting ideas! Whee! I'm getting bead-drunk! What fun!

I am happy to see that beads are arriving!
My beads came today!!!!
I am so excited to see what's in this fabulous box - the colours just sing to me! Now if I can just get a migraine free day to look a little closer . . . .
New beads always make me feel creative <grin>
Mine are still in the I-will-make-something-with-these-next pile.
