check out this lovely and adorable hoop that nilmerg made for me in our personal swap. I love it! She chose brown floss, which just happens to match my livingroom and looks fantastic on my wall.  Thanks so much for your stitching,  nilmerg!

Lookee what jmiller614 made for me as a special get well card. She knew I just had surgery on my hand and am having, needless to say, difficulties crafting. ( Craft withdrawal is real...) I love it! She did not necessarily claim me, but I DID have hands on my list of subjects...  Thank you jmiller614 .  You made my day!

Here is the gorgeous embroidery card Mrs.LindsayLoo made for me.  she describes  how she put a lot of herself into this piece of art. Makes me want to meet her for coffee!  it is so beautiful and my daughter agreed.
Next up is from Gspinn, a wonderful (watercolor?) rendering of my favorite flower, the blue morning glory. Since I do not have any in bloom yet, I get to gaze at this lovely card for now.

thank you both crafters for terrific work!  I truly love them both.

I struck it rich!  So many wonderful cards, all in the same day. i think fate knew that i needed cheering up.  I am so sorry for the out of focus pics, my hand is not doing well.  - have surgery on it tomorrow so eventually it will be able to take proper pictures, not shaking.
My goodies-

the above shot is of "something obscure that happened in 1963." I am quite mesmerized by this image. I dont know how it was done, but I think it is terrific!  It is done by JMiller614. There was both a total solar eclipse AND the first woman in space in 1963 (my birth year, Jmiller, to answer your question...) so she combined the two in one awesome card.
next up, two from miknessevie,
a baby seal

so adorable.  I love seals funny hind legs.
and sunrise

I love how the flowers frame the sunrise. such a cool idea and medium.

and from kwality570, embroidery, which you can see in the hot pink lines behind Mr B as i am calling him. The lines are sort of "Ta Da!" in my opinion.  such a fun card.

Crafters, I love them all. keep up the wonderful variety, and thank you so much!!

Here is the letter M card I got from ThreadorYarn. It has the definition of M all over it (who'dathunk there WAS such a thing!) and a zentangle M.  I love it.  It is going on the door to my room.  thank you, ThreadorYarn.
And a SECOND M, with beads, came today also from AmandaBL

it is so pretty with all the colors and beads. It will go in my car! I am decorating my car dash to suit me...
thank you, AmandaBL.

TheManicCrafter made a stunning windchime for me!

It is HUGE and will look so great hanging from my back yard pine tree, near the hammock.
It was difficult to take a good pic of it due to the long size, but here is a view from the bottom

and a close up of the twisted forks that she painted gold and are soo cool

The variety of materials in this piece is amazing. The top part looks like a base for a candle or something.  i love it. The forks impress me - my injured wrist and thumb will do no such thing as create forks like this.
I love the butterflies, and the tiny chime at the bottom.  It is just an all around nice thing to have.  thank you so much, TheManicCrafter.
ps if you have more appropriate pics, I'd love for you to post 'em!

Here is the fox themed card that gozer made for me. It is so beautiful and so Me! It reminds me of 70s images, which always make me happy. I just love it, gozer. thank you so much. It looks like it took quite awhile to make.

Well, i am plagued with depression and lately it has been bad, like my meds are suddenly not working.  But today's mail actually made me smile!! i got a grand set of ATCs from zkatom.  Here they are -

Sunrise on the Lake  (sunset/sunrise theme)

Birth of Surtsey (something obscure that happened in 1963)

zkatom has BEEN here, in Iceland!!

and 3 on my nautical/seaside theme -

Grey Day at the Sea

I love them all, but my total fave has to be the boat. I adore that font, and the nautical chart in the background, and the roping below and the gorgeous craft itsself.

thank you soooo much, zkatom. you really made my day.

I got the coolest box from burntsmore today!  She stalked me really really well. I got a vine tendrils box:

I loooooove vine tendrils and collect them. I think they are one of the prettiest things that Nature makes.  a shot of the back:

some of the vines are hanging on to pearl beads - so cute!
the insides-

I love the little handle.
the loot -

My faves are the wee birdie house and the tiny shell and the bunnies.  and the fishie.
thanks so much, burntsmore. you sure got me down to a tee.  I love it all
