I received from curiouscoffeectoday, and, man, did she get my style!  Here is all my "love"ly booty:  



The tattoo inspired necklace is so awesome and I'm gonna wear the heck out of that this week for sure!  And the valentine card is so cute, based on Dr, Who, which we both love.  And... i may have already eaten the toffee.  Yum!  

Close-up of the necklace:



And the cutest card!

Card, check.  Crafts, check.  Extras, check.  2 feet of snow to maneuver through with 2 year old in tow to get to the post office tomorrow, check.  It could be an interesting adventure, but I will send out on time!

These mug rugs are all so great!  I love how different they are and how they really seem to speak to the personality of the recipients. 

Thanks, LadybugsAndBumblebees!  I have never really quilted before and have only done sporadic applique, so it was a total challenge to do the mug rug, but I was really pleased with how it came out, since I apparently went off the deep end and decided to quilt, embroider, stencil, AND applique all in one item.  I'm so glad smileyyogini likes it!  It was a really fun package to put together.

Thanks for posting a pic of the mug!  My LO has taken to sleeping with it.  Cheesy.  Guess he likes it!

I do NOT craft with paper.  So, I feel like I need to give myself a little shout out for successfully completing the paper cutting, gluing, and fiddling portion of my Valentine "card".  AND, I feel like it turned out better than I had initially envisioned.  Okay, done patting myself on the back.  Back to crocheting... I was a little too ambitious in my idea and will be cutting it close.  Thank goodness for blizzards snowing me in, so there's nothing to distract me.

I received from smileyyogini and myvpackage b is just the lovely warmth I needed to get me set for the coming Snowmageddon predicted for our area.  Here is most of what was sent.  My toddler ran off with the mug and I forgot to retrieve it before bedtime.  Don't worry, its crocheted!  What a need idea that was!  The little one has decided it goes with  his tea set, and who am I to argue?  I will post a pic of it tomorrow.  Anyway, here is the rest of my goodies:



the mug rug is so pretty.  The yarn ball has really cool quilting done to make it seem like wound yarn.  And the coffee cup hoopla will be hung in my kitchen. 

Here's a close-up of the super cool hand carved stamp that looks like a skein of yarn and stitch markers that are clay coffee beans!  I love them and must immediately find a complecated knitting pattern so I can use them! 



And of course my espresso chocolate bar and coffee extras!  Thanks so much, smileyyogini!  I love my package!

Well, I was struck by inspiration... twice!  Love when that happens.  First when extra shopping for another swap, which means my "card" will be a little out of the ordinary.  And then when I started my original idea, and saw a rogue skein of sock yarn out of the corner of my eye that I COMPLETELY forgot about and which practically screamed "turn me into a valentine!"  Gotta get one small thing from the craft store on Saturday, but it's coming along well... and I'm giggling my way through at my own brilliance, so thats gotta mean something good is brewing, right?

I've been done for a couple of days, but it's been BUSY around here.  Should finally have a free moment to photograph and package tomorrow and maybe send, otherwise on Saturday for sure!

OOh!  I'm so excited.  I'm pumped for little swaps this year and I LOVE Valentines day... so much, that I'm hosting a "Galentines Day" party for 15 women and their 2 year olds.  Yep, I'm that crazy!    Sending in my Q!
