My Whimsy Jar Came!

Yesterday was an awesome happy mail day! I got three packages! First, my whimsy jar from my swap partner Susan Alton arrived. I just love the jar she chose - it's so unique! I had to dump everything out right away! There so many cool little doodads in there. Some of my favorite things in the jar are the retro playing cards, swizzle sticks from Las Vegas, poker chips, a couple of cool crosses, a big green dangly gem-type thing, an antique doily, a maya road keychain and so much more! Thanks so much Susan - I love my jar! I will display it proudly on a shelf in my scraproom and dig into it often for inspiration!
The other two packages I got were my Round Robin Swap box, which was absolutely full of goodies! (I forgot to take a picture, but it was loaded!), If you've never done a round robin swap, you should try it! We fill a box once-a-month with used scrap goodies that we no longer need and send it off to the next person, who then gets to take out whatever she wants, fill the box back up with stuff from her scrap supplies, and then ship it off once again! It's a great way to recycle, eliminate waste, and get some new scrappy supplies to try!
Last, but not least my Urban Prep collection from SiStv arrived. I've been watching the layouts in the SiStv gallery made with this collection and I am so inspired! (Scroll down to see a pic of the collection). I can't wait to create something with it!
OMG you have to check out the video that Bree and Camille posted on Crop Suey yesterday - it's awesome! Click here to see it! P.S. did you check out the sneak peeks of the paper lines they are using in their premier kits? YUMMY!!! I'm counting the days til September 1st!
I leave you with a pic of my snugglebear Willie - I took it yesterday when he was sitting on my lap...
Happy weekend everyone!
