So cute Lynner4!  I was inspired by this idea, too, and made these for a kitchen swap:

They were to go with these placemats I stenciled:

I just did art for another swap & it was based on this idea:


Totally easy - I used old magazines & clothing catalogs.  I used poster board & a couple old frames I had bought several years ago but never put to use.  So, supply list: "junk mail," glue stick, poster board, razor/exacto knife, frame.

It was to coordinate with these placemats...

Thought that might give someone an art idea.  Wink  You're only limited to the shapes you can cut out on poster board!

Woo hoo - I got my package from our illustrious organizer!   Cheesy  I told her my favorite color combos are pink & brown, and light aqua & brown and she totally made more from the ideas list I sent in my profile than I expected!   Cheesy

First, here is the package.  Oooh - international mail!

I got a bagsket!  I made a small one for someone on my first swap & decided I totally needed one to stick my crafts in while I'm working on them.  I have a ___ from the chocolate swap in there now.  Smiley  I like the brown fabric - it looks very island-y.

Next, I got a bag to take to work.  I wanted something that was "tame" enough to walk into our corporate office, but still fun.  It's brown, has a ton of pockets, and a pink zipper.  Wink

Then, I got a cute laptop sleeve, which I think is self explanatory.  Wink

And last, but not least, I got this great knit hat! 

I'm going to have to take an action shot, but I have pony tail hair today.  Wink

Malisha also noticed I like chocolate from a little stalking, so we agreed to swap some chocolate, too.  Wink  Check this out - the wrapping is so cool I don't want to open it!   Cheesy  DH tried to take off with it (he loves chocolate too) but I got it back.  Wink

Malisha also sent a coin purse which she didn't make but was made by local crafters (in Mexico).  I thought that was a nice touch.  Smiley

Thanks Malisha for a great swap & a great package!

Ok this is technically from another swap, but check out what I just got from Mexico!

The wrapping is so cool, I'm reluctant to unwrap it!   Cheesy

Well not before I get to post all the great stuff I got from you, Eirle!   Cheesy  So she did a little stalking on me & not only incorporated DH & my love of ducks, but also my love of lavender and how I wanted some reusable grocery bags. 

So here is the package...

And here is the loot...Keep an eye on that notecard.   Wink

Here are the reversible placemats with matching napkin rings.  The flash was being funny, but the backing is actually a green.  I love the fabrics! 

Now remember the ducks?  Check this out:

And remember the motif on the notecard?  Well here are the reusable grocery bags she sent!

And last (but not least), here is the lavender sugar she sent!

Plus she sent a bunch of leftover green fabric!  Thanks Eirle - everything was great & you got my tastes spot on!   And thanks for a great swap DeannaLynn06!

Here is the bookmark I got from Michowl - isn't it pretty?  It's watercolor.

Thanks for a great swap, group 2!

Woo hoo - package on the way!  Here is a sneak preview.  Wink

I love the machine embroidered ones - it almost makes me second guess getting a plain (non-embroidery) sewing machine to replace my old one.  Wink

Here is the bookmark I got from tvelez.


She noticed I was on the Chocoholics swap & made a chocolate themed bookmark.  Probably why I'm also on the "help me lose weight" swap.   Roll Eyes

Here are the two bookmarks I got from ellenmarie:

Aren't they cute?  I'd never seen a corner bookmark.

And here are the bookmarks I got from cclewis05, with one of those cards that has seeds you can plant:

Here is the back of the blue bookmark, with a quote from Dr. Seuss about reading that I like:

Nice, huh?   Cheesy  Thanks so much guys!  Yay group 2!  Can't wait til you get mine!  Cheesy
