Pretty Things Jar Swap

I always feel so happy when I received crafting supplies in the mail, after I click "submit" to an online shopping order, I can't describe to you how excited I was waitng for those goodies to arrived at the mail box or doorstep.
 Just about 5-6 weeks ago, I thought, why don't we do a swap between crafter, here you go, we have the "Pretty Things Jar Swap"
My partner for the swap is Clare Buswell, she is such a talented crafter, the projects she made is just breathtaking beauties, check it out yourself HERE!
Like everyone else, I felt so bad and thought that I didn't filled the jar with enough pretty things after I received her jar sent to me, look at the following pictures and I am sure you will agree.


My happiness starts here when this thing arrived at my door.


Even the tissue paper that wrapped the jar is pretty...


Look at this!!!! Now you can see why I am sooooooo HAPPY!!!!


Clare even make a pretty label just for this event


Now you can see why my eyes pop out? Look at that pretty flower... (I am in very good control that I have not use it yet as I don't want to spoilt the fun)


Look at all these pretty things filled up to the top of the jar...


I can't have enough space to lay them all out and put all in one picture


Look!!!!!


Lots of laces and ribbons, crocheted flowers...can't wait to use them...


Besides all those pretty things you see above, it has more things in the box and a lovely card, I felt double bad now, I didn't even put in a card for her, sorry Clare! And thanks for all these pretty things in the jar you sent to me.

Now I can't wait for the "get-together" at the party, September 7th, 7-9 PM (EST)
And I had so much fun that I already had the next swap in mind, look out if you want to join in the fun.

Kirsty, first of all, thanks so, so much for initiating this fun, fun swap! You received a bounty of lovely items as did I. I must say, I feel as if I should have had a larger jar to stuff for Linda, she sent such precious things to me and I am so happy that you had this great idea.
I would love to participate in another...maybe with a theme?(pretty things is a great theme too!)
