This sounds like fun, and I just might be signing up if time allows.

So glad you liked everything, LadybugsAndBumblebees. And you even noticed the orange thread on the package!

I took pictures before mailing. I'll post them in a few days.

And here at last are the photos I promised of the goodies from aunty.hela! She is an awesome jewelry maker, and I just love the things she sent.

Button bracelet just like the one I was admiring, and two, yes two, pairs of earrings inspired by my wists.

They were all tucked into that pretty little sheer bag, which I also love.

A couple of "action shots":

I wore one pair of the earrings to work today, and every time I looked in a mirror, I smiled.

Thank you so much, aunty.hela. You tailored everything to my tastes and wishes!

We have plenty of good paper in Pennsylvania -- that's why we want to share it with everyone!  Grin

I sent a package to LadybugsAndBumblebees today. Had a great time crafting -- hope you like it, Ladybugs. It's due to arrive on Wednesday.

I received a package from aunty.hela. It's beautiful stuff -- two pairs of earrings inspired by my wists AND the cutest button bracelet ever. I'll take pictures, but it will be a few days before I can post them, since I have to use a computer at work to get the pictures off my camera.

BUT I do have pictures of the goodies from LadybugsAndBumblebees AND leighi123. Take a look at all this crafty goodness.

First, from LadybugsAndBumblebees, a super-duper crocheted market bag in a gorgeous shade of teal AND a cute fabric bookmark.

Everything was wrapped in that sweet paper with the trees on it. Thank you, LadybugsAndBumblebees, for remembering that I love tree designs. The paper will surely find its way into some of my paper crafting. There was also a piece of tree themed fabric that I love.

Here's a closeup of the bookmark. The reverse side is a different print, but I forgot to get a picture of that.

Next, the goodness sent by leighi123. She also used green -- imagine that. It's my favorite color! And her son helped to choose the fabric for this set of coasters AND a luggage tag.

What a beautiful job you did on the sewing, leighi123. Here's the design side of the luggage tag with a simply irresistible leaf applique. Also one of the coasters in use.

I am so spoiled by so many swap partners. Thank you, everyone!

Gosh, a lot can happen in a single day! I sent a package to aunty.hela today.

AND I received TWO packages -- one from LadybugsandBumblebees, and one from leighi123. Both were filled with all kinds of birthday delights.

From LadybugsandBumblebees, a lovely crocheted market bag, a fabric bookmark, and a swatch of cute, leafy green fabric.

From leighi123, a set of beautiful fabric coasters and an equally beautiful luggage tag.

Thank you both! Photos to follow.

Meanwhile, I have photos of the sweet package I received from our fearless leader, phnxreign99.

When I opened the box, there was this knit fleece fabric. The note suggested that I use it, along with some pink, to make a coat for my dog Brooke. Here's Brooke modeling the raw material for her next piece of clothing:

Imagine my smile when I found, underneath the fabric, this convenient little stash:

I'm enjoying a piece as I type.

Then, the thing I was expecting, but it's much more beautiful than I had anticipated. A threadcatcher/pincushion/sewing caddy featuring -- you guessed it -- a green print! I love this.

Thank you so much, phnxreign99. You really nailed it!

The package from phnxreign99 arrived today! Everything is so perfect and tailored to my wishes. I took pictures with my iPod and will try to get them posted tonight. Technology is not my strong point.

Thank you, phnxreign99!
