Here is the echidna from a different angle.  I don't know what convinced me it need to be made this way, except crazyda79 had mentioned wall art, had hooplas and crafted taxidermy on her pinterest.  I figured why not just throw it all together  Grin

I feel like a bad partner. I received nearly a week ago and didn't post pictures yet.  My computer at home decided to go belly up, and since I didn't want to wait any longer, I am loading them from work.  Shocked  Being a nurse I have had some funny looks from coworkers as I scanned the gallery again. lol  Everything looks amazing!

First off, I need to show off the card.  Its too funny-creepy-lovely not to share.

craftylittlemonkey made my something I didn't actually think would get picked!  A puppy-monkey-baby  Grin  If you haven't seen the commercial yet for Mountain Dew Kickstart....you should.  My kids (esp my son) think this creature is the creapiest thing ever. 
If you notice the string to the left, when pulled, PMB actually dances around and swings its limbs.  Its currently hanging just inside my livingroom doorway, so everyone gets the joy of seeing it daily.

The face is my favorite part.

And some crafty extras she sent along Smiley

Thanks for the fabulous package craftylittlemonkey!!!

Just sent in my questionnaire.  This is my offering this year.  (picture of my hand is just to show size)  Its hard to get the glitter on the little guys face to show up in pictures, but it has a light glitter effect.

p.s. sorry the pics are sideways, but you get the idea.

I am finally able to post pictures!!  And I am sorry now that you may have to crank your head sideways to see them.  No matter how many times I tried to load them, they always flipped.

Posting in the order received.

First is a really cute one from Jenn9000, already in my book club book Smiley  I never would have thought to do the folds in the paper like she did, it turned out really neat.

Second, Riechan and I agreed on 3 bookmarks.  She did a lot of homework. lol.  Not only am I a nurse, but I also love fairies Smiley
I seriously wish I could draw like this!

Next one, is an ECG strip with a heart.

And the 3rd, is some beautiful butterflies, with a "color your own" zen doodle on the back.

Thank you both for being awesome partners!!

I finally found a way to post my pictures of the fabulous package I received from edelC.  I can't get pictures to load from my phone...and computer at home is being dumb....so I am finally at work and posting from here.  (I am a nurse so I only work 12 days a month.)

She sent me a nursing pocket organizer belt!  I have been wanting one of these, but never find the time to make one for myself.  I will be picking up some strapping for the belt and will be using it shortly.  She also sent me a beautiful mug rug with some crazy intense stitching, and an awesome little pouch, and a bookmark. Somehow she made the bookmark stiff, I assume she stitched through cardboard.  Edel, you must have an amazing machine!

She also sent some cool fat quarters, the green one is my favorite Smiley

I got 2 wonderful packages this week...however I am once again on a stretch of nights (nurse) so its been hard to get pictures loaded.  So I am posting from work since I couldn't do it at home.

First off is my package from cmouse01.
She sent me a lovely toque and cowl for our winters.  Where I live we have snow pretty much from the start of October til the end to middle of April.  It can be anywhere from -10 to -50 all in the same week! So I will get tons of use out of these!

Second is my package from RaraAvis.
I love reading and usually have many books on the go.  I think only 4 at this particular time, lol.  She sent 4 velvet bookmarks with cute charms/jewels on each end, some Orange is the New Black bookmarks, a fabulous package of embroidery floss, and a chocolate bar (which I forgot to take a picture of).

Thank you both very much for claiming me!!!  Your cards are in the mail!

I sent my package to Lo{ve} today as well.  I can't wait to see what she thinks!!!  Its always nerve wracking when you take your own artistic liberty in a project.

Ok. So finally on computer 4 I can get the pictures to load.

This is what I received from my partner!

A maxi skirt/dress with Batman checking it out.

A touque/ scarf combo. Perfect for our -40s.

A stuffy, which my youngest promptly claimed.

This is hard to see in the pictures but its a beautiful cowl.  It gets really cold here from about October until March so this will be great!  (We just got another 20-30 cm of snow on Saturday and Sunday)

And last, my most favorite item of all!  A boho style bag!  I kinda have a bag fetish so this is wonderful!

Thanks jennythor!

p.s. yes some of the pictures are showing up sideways, and upside down and wonky....I am just happy they loaded at this point.

Loving everything that everyone got so far!  Such an amazing crafty group.  I got my stocking last week but there has been a lot of chaos in my world and I am just getting around to posting now.  Be prepared for a picture overload Smiley

This is the stocking I received from fluffypants and its FANTABULOUS!

A tin filled and I mean filled with my favorite Christmas cookie of all time!  Peppernuts!!!!!
And I am barely sharing them with anyone else...because I don't have to. lol

A whole amazing bunch of teddy eyes.  These are amazing because we don't have a single store here that sells them, and the only place I can find them is online.  I already have 2 sets of eyes being used in Christmas gifts I am making my kids.

Some really cute sock monkey pictures.

2 really pretty necklaces.  Its hard to get a good picture of the one on the right, its a resin necklace with a gorgeous snowflake in the centre.

2 tiny notebooks....I plan on putting these in my fairy terarium.

adorable light up snowman magnets.  They have taken up permanent yearly residence on my fridge Smiley

A super cute tiny little clay fairy house!  This is going in my terarium as well.  If you take off the roof it even has a tiny little place to leave a secret message.

some candy that my kids promptly claimed, and some chapstick that I snuck into my work bag before my kids had a chance at stealing it as well.

3 ornaments for my tree....with mouths that open to store candies....my kids decided they each get one of these as well.

Some wacky pencils. These bring back many childhood memories.  I had to spin and poof each one.

The most amazing...stellar...perfect gift for me ever!!!!
BUTTONS!!  and The best ones in the world!!!

A cool jar with a monogrammed "B".

And some real Maple Syrup.  If you have never had it...you will never know what you are missing!  Its the bombdigity...and no I am not sharing mine with my kids Smiley

A really neat bag...I love to read...this is my new work bag.

A cute little loyalty card wallet....I will fill this in no time.

And last but not least 2 really neat pictures with wonderful quotes

Thank you so very much fluffypants!  I feel spoiled!

Loving the gallery so far!

I will modify this post and add my goodies as they arrive Smiley

I got 2 wonderful packages today!  I love happy mail!

First package is a beautiful snowflake star from Amazon_warrior.  My oldest daughter seems to think she needs it for a necklace....I told her to keep her grubby meathooks off of it!

My son....wanted the box it came in!....He didn't get it.

Second package....An adorable super soft mitten from rockingbearranch.  Along with the symbolism behind her egg ornaments should I desire to try and make one. The little teddybear piece she sent along is going to become a TM patch for my tree as well Smiley  Now this mitten also had a thief...this time my youngest daughter.  She thought it would make a great blanket for her tiny toy dog.  Nope, not gonna happen.

Seriously.  Anyone else have kids that try to thief every single package that comes?  My kids think if its crafted, it should be for them.

I have 2 more packages to load pictures now, and hubby said there was more tonight when he picked up the mail so hopefully I will add them tomorrow.

For your viewing pleasure tonight.....

Some cute snowman TM patches from gala_apples.  

And another cute Christmas Tree patch from LovelyMiss.

I am getting giddy just thinking about setting up my tree!

Last ornament!  My little jingle mouse from gigglygirl!

I loved this swap!  Looking forward to next year!
