Here is the beautiful matchbox I received from lindyv321!

She picked my flying pig theme. I love how elegant the box turned out, even though the theme is silly. It makes the box really fun.

Here are the goodies...

I love the little plastic pig! Thank you so much lindyv321! I will have to find a nice place to display it. Cheesy

I came home to find a wonderful package for elyxandra waiting for me! I love everything!

Here is the whole package....

She sent a great Easter box, which an extra foldable box! Funny thing about the cute beanie baby is I used to be obsessed with them when I was a kid. Growing up in the 90s they were so popular, I had a huge collection. I really love getting one and even funnier is that fact it is named Chickie. Last spring we raised baby chicks, each of my nieces and nephews got to name one. My youngest niece named her little yellow chick Chickie. So this brought back good memories.

On to the crafted stuff. Here is a group shot....

The little bunny pouch is great, I actually have one pinned. I guess I forgot to get a picture of the yummy cadbury eggs that were inside it! The bird nest is also super cute. Elyxandra did a great job of capturing my love of birds!

Finally, I wanted to get a close up of the chicken, which is just so cute!

Thank you so much elyxandra! I don't think I could have gotten a more prefect Easter package! Grin

What a beautiful butterfly quilt and a cute pic of pjherbert's granddaughter with it!!!

I know TroubleT has been very busy, so I thought I would some pics of the quilt I sent her. Hopefully, when she has some time I would love to see pics of the quilt at it's new home!

I went with her theme of Buddha. I thought it would be a fun challenge to make and I would get to learn a little about Buddhism, which is very interesting!

The shape of the quilt is suppose to represent a lotus. Buddha is also sitting on a lotus, which is actually 3d. It is hard to tell in the picture, but the main petals have wire in them which allows them to stick out and be shaped.

Here is the back...

Here is a close up of some of the detail...

The green fabric is actually straight off her pinterest! I thought it was really beautiful fabric so I wanted to incorporate it into the quilt. I ended up doing tons of hand sewing on the quilt. I also tried to do french knots for the hair, but I was having trouble getting it to look right, so I ended up going with glass beads.

Wow fun quilts everyone!

I received from TroubleT today! She made a beautiful tree quilt!!!!!

Here is a close up of the great details. I love the little door at the base of the tree! The fabric choice for the tree is awesome, since it really looks like tree bark.

Thank you so much TroubleT! I love the quilt! Grin  Cheesy Wink

Oooo coffee massage bars sound interesting. I love the monkey pillows, the ear cuffs and custom made eyeshadow...cool!

I received today from Sylvani! The package was wrapped up with a note from the USPS saying it had been damaged during shipping, but everything appears to be ok!

Here is the whole package...cool fabric, candy, stickers, card, crocheted hears, and a drawstring bag.

The purple crocheted heart wreath is so beautiful!

Here is the cute drawstring bag. Sylvani had some struggles making it, but i thought it turned out really nice!

Finally the pretty card....

Thank you so much Sylvani! The package was wonderful! Grin

Haha that pic of Faox on the copy machine is so funny! I also think Rupert looks adorable on the surfboard.

Peanut Butter made it home safely today  Cheesy.

Here he is with all the goodies he brought back...

The salt water taffy is actually from a Virginia Beach company, Forbes. I already cracked it open and it is delicious!

The scrapbook Alexampersandra made is truly beautiful! We both ended up with library pics in our scrapbooks, since we both work at libraries.
I had trouble getting decent pictures of the scrapbook, but here is my favorite page...

It's pictures from Mount Trashmore, a landfill that was turned into a park. I just love the name!

Alexampersandra also made some great magnets that are already up on the refrigerator.

The no cursing one is actually like the signs they have all over the place on the ocean front in Virgina Beach. I thought that was pretty funny, I'm surprised they don't get stolen or defaced all the time.

Thanks Alexampersandra! I'm glad Peanut Butter had such a fun time with you. Grin

That shrine is cute!

Since Sylvani seems to be having camera problems, I am posting pics of the package I sent to her.

First here is the card

It is a shadow box style card, with a needle felted fox in it, since foxes are her favorite animal

The fox is able to be removed

I made her several pairs of earrings

She also requested hair pins/sticks, which I have never made before so I gave it a try. I also made a beeswax floating heart candle and a needle felted heart.

Finally, here are the treats I sent. Some are ones she really wanted to try that are not available in Germany.
