So many amazing packages, I love everything! I've received from my lovely partner, Silentblair, and to say it made my week would be an understatement, I've been so spoilt! Here's what silentblair made....

Everything arrived packaged in a silver parachute container, which was so cool!...

And inside were so many goodies I was totally overwhelmed, they're along the theme of Katniss' keepsakes!  Smiley

Haymitch's Hooch cozy (knitted beautifully):

On the back there's a little message stitched on which says 'if found, return to Haymitch!' - well, he's not getting it back  Wink

A gorgeous knitted archery wrist protector which I just love (if I had to pick a favourite item, this would be it!)

An Effie Trinket trinket box, which is so pretty in itself, but then contained awesome jewellery (I love the washers with the names stamped on, and WWKD), they've already been worn Smiley

A cute little hoop, with a design I had on my pinterest, this is going on my Hoopla wall Smiley

An adorable Ben and Jerry's ice cream cozy with a favourite Peeta quote, and some trading cards (opened within seconds Wink)

A crocheted cake from Peeta for Finnick, which is beautiful, President Snow's trinket box with Peeta's pearl inside (sniff!), and some reusable tea bags, which are a great idea:

And lastly (I know, right?!), a selection of Rue's wildflowers:

Thank you so much silentblair! It's the most thoughtful package, I love it all Smiley I hope your parcel arrives soon too!

I've received from Angry Angel, and to say it's amazing would be an understatement!!

If I could have picked my dream Adventure Time crafted items...these would have been what I picked....

It's crochet Finn and Jake!!

They are so beautifully made! Angry Angel's skills are just immense, I'm in awe!


And Finn's backpack, which comes complete with some rocks from the Candy Kingdom (which are edible of course!)

These little guys have seriously made my week...thank you so much Angry Angel. Your item is being finished today Smiley

I've received two absolutely gorgeous hoops! I completely love both of them...they're going to look perfect on my growing hoopla wall Smiley

The first one is this lovely squirrel hoop from Ramona Q

Squirrel close up...look at how neat the stitches are!

Thank you Ramona Q Smiley

The second hoop is this stunning piece of stitching from ZidishaLuxe!

I love this design so much...and it makes me smile because neither of us are completely sure if the deer are friendly or vicious  Wink Here's a close up of the deer so you can see just how detailed the stitching is:

Thank you ZidishaLuxe  Smiley

All of the tiny creations in this gallery are just amazing...I love the little vampire chicken  Cheesy

I've received two amazing matchboxes...with a similar theme...you might be able to tell that I love a certain TV Show starring a timelord traveling around in a big blue box  Wink

So the first matchbox I received was from BoyceMachine...look at the tiny matchbox Tardis (from Doctor Who of course  Cheesy )

Then inside was a charm bracelet and some charms...love them! (especially the pink flower, so pretty!)

Thank you BoyceMachine, it's such a lovely little box, and I love the fact that you spent some time studying a police box in Glasgow to get inspiration!  Cheesy

My second box was from Ralph...and it's another Tardis...which totally made my week (seriously, I can never have too many Doctor Who related items  Cheesy

Here's the outside...

And then inside was a drawing of the 10th Doctor  Smiley

Then all the goodies inside! Thank you so much Ralph, I had so much fun sorting through all of these...I love my Tardis necklace and all of the charms Smiley

Thanks again to both of you...this has been such a fun swap to craft for.

I also just wanted to share this...my mini 11th Doctor checking out his new modes of transportation  Cheesy

Thank you so much...I love them and I think I'm going to put them up by my desk so they can make me smile if work gets me down  Smiley
