Great job guys everyone really out did themselves!

We only have one package that has gone missing so if anyone wants to volunteer to send a little something that would be great, I have some stuff set aside for instances like this so no one will go ungifted.

I'll contact you guys when next years swap rolls around!

Fantastic Boo-ty from Lil Rose Thorn

I received a terrific Boo-ty Swap package from Rosana. See pics on my blog. Inside was the cutest crocheted pumpkin you've ever seen (with clever use of snaps for eyes), a sock kitty in colors that make my heart sing, a quilting pattern, a skein of Tofuttsies, a tiny skein of baby yarn, a pencil and eraser set, stickers for the girls and Callebaut dark chocolate (oh, I have a sinful lust for Callebaut chocolate!). Thank you for being a wonderful pal, Rosana!

My cup runneth over.....

Hi all.
This is my second year participating in the Boo-ty Swap and first I want to thank Firefly for organizing such a fun time.

That being next huge thanks goes out to Robyn. Her package for me arrived today and I feel very spoiled and blessed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the goodies.

As you can see she really outdid herself. Included in this package was candy corn socks, cookie cutters, an "I love yarn" pin, a breast cancer toe ring, a needle holder, 2 sets of bamboo DPNS, skull stitch markers, a large supply of various tea types and candy and finally a Sock kit from Robyn's own online yarn shop. The kit included both pattern and yummy yarn. I have already handed Robyn's card over to my hubby saying this would be a good place to make Christmas purchases. ;-) LOL

Once again thank so much for everything Robyn.

I received my boo-ty today! First let me say "Thank you, Nathania"
Ok on to the package...
Inside was a cut bat card, a beautiful skein of Trekking XXL in colorway 81 (very Halloween-y), the cutest little felted pumpkin which is now sitting all purty on my desk. There is also a little skull snow globe that rains bats (very cool!), three small packages of Soak in A Sent for Celebration, Flora, and Citrus, a chocolate marshmallow ghost (it was yummy), a package of assorted Halloween mellowcremes, and a package of Peeps (cocoa cats! I had no idea there were such a thing a cocoa peeps!) All packaged in a cool bag.

Thank you so much, Nathania!

I got my package in the mail yesterday and it's so great! GI gave me a very delightful package including a bag she knit and loved (isn't it lovely when people give you things that they love? It means so much as a recipient) and fish stitch markers...very amusing to a kid who likes to go fishing with her dad! There were also a couple of skeins of KnitPicks Gossamer yarn in the Caribbean colourway that I'm contemplating patterns for as I type this, a chocolate bar that is long gone (but not forgotten), a humerous little CD, and vanilla/caramel candles that made this by far and away the best smelling package ever (one of my friends warned me not to put them near my bed because they may be missing by the time I wake up and there would be a waxy taste in my mouth...). Thanks so much, GI, it's all very awesome!

By the way, "Wicked Cool" is actually in my own personal lexicon. Just sayin'.

Has anyone received their Boo-ty yet?

Thursday, October 11, 2007


Hope you are all having a lovely October, the weather here has been amazing and it will be a shock when it turns cold. Just wanted to remind everyone that Monday is October 15 and therefore packages are due to be mailed out. if for any reason you are going to be able sending out your package please let me/your buddy know so that there isn't anyone lost in the shuffle. last year we only had 2 packages "mysteriously disappear" so let's try and make it a "no package left behind" kind of a swap.

If you are mailing your package within the US I would recommend getting delivery confirmation ($0.50) so that if anything goes wrong there is a record of the package being sent and if/when it was received.

Happy Swapping and I look forward to seeing what everyone gets!

Saturday, September 29, 2007


Well this is about halfway to when the packages need to be posted(I think), things have been busy at my house so I am looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. If you guys have any problems/questions let me know. I'll be popping by your blogs to see what you have been up to. I cannot believe it will be October already on Monday!

Boo-ty Swap 2

That's right all you ghosts and goblins Boo-ty Swap is back, the nightmare continues.

It's a Halloween - themed secret swap. The rules are thus, sign ups begin now and end September 15. The match ups will be sent out the following week. It's kind of like a Secret Pal, but with more specifications.

Boo-ty will be shipped to your Boo-ty Pal by October 15.

It needs to include:
1. Something made.
2. Something stash-y.
3. Something to eat.
4. Something bought specifically with your person in mind.
5. And of course, something Halloween-y

There don't need to be 5 things in the box, you can mix it up if you want. Make some pumpkin cookies and tick three items off your list. But if you want to put 5 things in the that's fine, too. "They're more guidelines, than rules." Open to anyone, you don't have to be knitter to join! Also remember, this is The Swap of Small Treasures-you want to give things that you treasure and that they will treasure. It's about a connection... you know, with your Boo-ty Pal. :)

So, if you would like to join The Boo-ty Swap send me an EMAIL with your name, email, blog address, and snail mail address.

Trick or Treat!
