I've been moving/cleaning/stressing all this week, so I haven't really started stalking/crafting yet. I took just a quick glance at my stalkee's questionnaire/profile/wist... So, hopefully when I have a few calm minutes this weekend I can get into more detail and think on it some more!

I received from Miss Barbara earlier in the week, and even though I took pictures as I was open everything... I just haven't had a minute to upload and post them til today.

Everything was AWESOME!!! I loved it all. The purse was very nicely put together and I've been using it for the past few days, so I know that its pretty durable. It's crocheted on the outside and lined with a cute glittery fabric. There is a fabric pocket inside the purse, and a crocheted pocket on the outside under the flap. Sorry for the poor quality pictures. My camera has gone missing, so I am having to make due with cell camera pics. Anyhow... Get ready for a TON of pictures to demonstrate the sheer awesomeness that is my purse and fillers from Miss Barbara!!!

Here are pictures of the purse and all the extras all wrapped up, and then unwrapped!




The rest will be thumbnails so that this post isn't too terribly long. I took a lot of pictures... lol.

Here are detail shots of the inside of the purse, the crafted  extras, and a shot of the awesome beading on the zippered pouch she made for me. I can't believe that she does all her sewing by hand. Its is so neat and even and the stitches are so tiny and perfect! I do not have the patience for all those stitches and definitely not all that beading. But, it is awesome!!!




I have really enjoyed this swap so far, and I can't wait to finish up and get your package out to you, Miss Barbara! Thank you for being such an awesome partner, and I hope that you love your package as much as I love mine!!

Thanks to our organizer and co-organizer for putting together such an awesome swap!!!

I just had the most perfect day! I went to our new house to take the FOR SALE sign out of the yard and measure for appliances and whatnot... Then, I come home to find a package that I wasn't expecting to get for another couple of days!

I got the most FABULOUS package from Miss Barbara!!!!!! I took some pictures, but I want to see if I can get some better ones once the hubby gets home. At least some better ones of the AHHHdorable purse!!! This thing is just too cute! And everything else is awesome, too!!! Thank you soooo much, Miss Barbara. Although, my three year old daughter and I are already fighting over most of it... haha Smiley  Grin   Cheesy

Note to my partner...

I just got the keys to my new house. So, if you are my stalker... I am about to PM the new address to our organizer Smiley

I got my package from dablondeemu the other day! Sorry it has taken me so long to get pictures up, but I've been a little preoccupied this weekend. We just bought a house!!! Anyhow... I got a nice package, and here are the pics Smiley



The little bundle with the flower on it was a knitted heart.


In the brown pocket on the front of the card was this little wire cloud with beaded rain drops and a heart Smiley


Inside the card was this cross stitch on card stock of something my husband says all the time. He thought it was cute and he hung it on his desk at work!


Then, in the brown wrapped package, there were some cookies. I was lucky to get a picture of them since my kids were hovering around me singing about wanting cookies... lol.


Thank you, dablondeemu for a very thoughtful and lovely package! I hope that everyone has a great Valentine's Day today!!  Grin

Thanks! We are so excited. Even the kids can't stop talking about it  Grin

After this swap and the other swap I just signed up for the other day, I'm gonna be taking a swap break for a while. But, its for an awesome reason... I will be needing all the crafting time I can get to fix up my NEW HOUSE!!!!!!!!! I am so stinking happy!! We have been renting for years now. And we have an opportunity now to own our own home. So, I've been doing happy dances all weekend Smiley

Swap wise, I'm still working on the purse and a couple of the crafted extras. I've got to try and get everything finished up this week so I can send off early next week and get to packing and moving Smiley
