April Coloriffic Swap ~ Ready to go

The color theme for the Coloriffic Swap-O-Rama for April is purple and green. Here's what I'm sending to my secret pal

Let's see. There are some purple hippo buttons, stickers, photo corners, scissors, ribbon, sequins, trim (for jeans or whatever) with purple and green flowers, some candy, lip gloss...the planner looking thingy at the top right corner is a Day Runner organizer (not dated) and was a dollar store find.

My swap partner makes jewelry, so the main craft supply portion of the package are beads

The beads in the "petals" are just cheap-o plastic (which is probably the equivalent of sending a knitter Red Heart acrylic yarn), but the beads in the center are glass - some are vintage German and Czech. The widdle mushroom and mousikins are my favorite - awww....

Here's the handmade stuff

Four crepe paper party cups and four invites so she can host a "grape" party ("great" party - get it?), a knitted coin purse, and yarn flower hairpins.

Packed and ready to go

Off this package goes south of the equator this time (and early to boot!)- at least my packages get to travel far and wide, even if I don't!

DAMN!!! It looks all so lovely together and the end packaging is pretty enough to just leave it wrapped! All the things you made are awesome! I am very curious about those hair about giving up your crafty secrets ?!!!
