First set is a super cute sea monster sculpture and the cutest coasters ever, I love them.
Here is a second set of coasters, they're awesome. My partner said she made two sets and hated one, I don't know which set she didn't like but I love them both. I think I'll use these as wall hangings though.
Some extra goodies from The Nightmare Before Christmas - earmuffs, a notebook and a wristband. Already someone has tried to steal my earmuffs, twice!
And last but not least, a wonderful zipper pull made of lampwork glass, I absolutely love it, it's perfect and I know just how I'm going to use it.
Thanks so much jonnamarco, you did a great job and this package really made my day

cover of the awesome album
the awesome stickers! not sure where i will put these, maybe i will put some in my other stamp album to mark out my USA pages, or some on my guitars??
Its been a fun swap and its great that we've all learnt a little about each other's countries! [or atleast about candy in each others countrys!!! ]
Wonderful package!!!! At first, I was all distracted by your duvet because I have the exact one on my bed right now-lol! I also have it in the red/orange combo Then I fell in love with the necklace, then got all distracted again by the stickers because I used the EXACT set (the Washington D.C.) to make a little booklet for some friends last spring. Amy, great work!
I rec'd a wonderful package today from Holistic Knitter!
A Welsh slate coaster with a bird on it.......I LOvE this!!! And I seriously needed the perfect coaster to keep on my side table next to my bed (the paper it's lying on is a Welsh/English language sheet)
Beautiful note cards from photos taken around where she lives (which looks so pretty). They each have envelopes too, I just forgot to put them in the picture. I'm going to frame these, I love them too much to send to someone else
A celtic cross-stitch bookmark of my name and a darling little glass snowglobe that says "Merry Christmas" in Welsh on it. The dragon inside is the Welsh dragon, but at first I thought it was Barney
This is a super Welsh tea-towel with recipes on it, I love it! Also, some fudge, a hard candy stick and a gorgeous knitted Welsh dragon washcloth.
This is a photo of everything together, including some local newspapers & brochures of the area, a pencil and pencil sharpener, a keyring with the longest Welsh town name on it, a recipe book, a tourist-type guide about Wales, a Welsh Love Spoon magnet and the funniest thing is a bookmark made from recycled sheep poop!!!
Thank you so much Holistic Knitter, this is a wonderful package and almost makes me feel like I've visited Wales!
I finally rec'd today from Aisy! She mailed it Priority on 13 August and it took them THIS long to deliver it three states away But it's here and I have pictures to prove it
A really pretty necklace, I love handmade jewelry!
A tiny tart (or pie?) magnet for my fridge
I don't know what you call this, I call it YUMMY! It's on a real glass dish, doesn't it look real?
This is a pencil/pen roll, which I've been wanting....I love pink and brown together
The pencil/pen roll unrolled:
The whole package together....there was a pretty box with the letter "K" on it (that's what the necklace was in), the little roses are actually a pen, a tiny cake eraser, a flowery-girly headband (that my daughter has already claimed for herself) and a package of adorable pink girly stickers
Thanks so much Aisy, you did a great job on your first swap.
Great cut-outs/stencils of my craftster name and my real name (this took a lot of time and she did a great job!), pretty little note cards, cute cupcake fabric scraps, polka-dot ribbons (I love polka-dots), a flower sticker with a peace sign in the center (I think this is for putting on glass), little mushroom/cupcake cutouts, little paper scraps perfect for collage....
and a rock! It's very tiny and handpainted, I love it.
Lots of great stuff.....a kimono made of shrinky-dink type plastic, a wooden tile with a fuzzy fabric that I'm saying is a cow, two more necklace type charms, a yellow striped tag set, a rubber bracelet that says "Wildlife Warriors" on it, the CUTEST little fabric scrap with an embroidered octopus wearing headphones, a little turtle, magic cards and paper (the square in the middle) with Loteria tiles on the other side (my camera battery went dead so I only have one photo of everything) I hope I didn't forget anything. Thanks Zombiekilla!
Okay, here is my latest project. I love cross stitch but I have not done a lot of cross stitching so it is far from perfect. I wanted to do something that would make me laugh every time I looked at it, so Monsieur Winky was born (I am immature sometimes )
Here he is in his frame that I found at Goodwill. I am thinking about spray painting the frame black but I am not sure. Also, do you think he needs a border around him? And yes, he does have a monocle and a mustache.
