I got the best cross stitch ever from Southern Flower! I've been coveting this for so long... It's framed and everything. My photography skills are such crap that I couldn't get a pic of the whole thing without it being one big glare.


Hooray for Firefly! Thank you so much, Southern Flower!

Received an amazing package from Kaotic Krafter!
She made me a bunch of recycled goodies.

A notebook and lovely card:



A super cute set of coasters:


A pin that is already on my coat:


And a wonderful cuff that I haven't taken off since I got it!


Kaotic Krafter is very talented. I feel really spoiled! Thank you so much for everything!

I received Package One from Antidigger today! I got a lot of cool stuff!


Since I have a severe allergy to artificial scents, she was nice enough to include an ingredients list for everything in her package. What a great idea. The final ingredient in everything she makes is the same: love! She included a wonderful chatty card ("wittering to the end of the page?" Please, I would have read six or seven more pages!), with a cute star on the front:


Paper beads she made with a mustard ad- they're a lovely colour in person.


A recycled paper trivet, which includes pages from Women's Weekly, Physics World, and New Scientist (one of these things is not like the others..lol)


And the best of all, a Nac Mac Feegles bookmark, based on Terry Prachett's Discworld novels! The Feegles are my favourite part of those books!


Thank you so much for everything, Antidigger! This package totally made my day.

Text reads- Imagine all the people living life in peace. Imagine all the people living for today. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I some day you will join us, and the world will be as one. Despite all the wars, intolerance, and general wickedness I see every day, I BELIEVE PEOPLE ARE  -INHERENTLY GOOD-

Text- I prayed for a crisis of faith... now what?

Get ready for AWESOME!!! I got totally spoiled by thefett!

First item: long sleeved t-shirt with quotes from the show ("The hero always peeks," "Your Ken can kiss my Barbie," "Cause of injury: Lack of adhesive ducks," and my personal favourite, "I'm not insane, my mother had me tested!" along with this cool diagram:


In the fun category, he made this little sign and included a pin:


I took the sign to the pub, and it turned out to be very useful...lol.

Then the awesome kicks into high gear! A wonderful and ever so funny sculpture of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock!

An actual working Sheldonbot!! He's pretty fast, too.

And finally, saving the best for last, a luminous fish!!!!!! Yes, you read that right, a luminous fish!


Thefett is a crafty god!! Thank you so much for everything!

At long last, I am finally able to post pictures of the beautiful dress Belladune made for package 3...


The orange bits are cut-outs that show a second layer of fabric- gorgeous and such a creative idea! Belladune's a genius!



The back view of the halter... so cute.

I'd like to say just for the record that the dress fits me much better than the dummy. Unfortunately I have no action shots because there's no one around who's willing to take them right now. (It's a complicated situation that sort of consists of being told that crafting is stupid and it's a waste of time to take pictures of stuff other people made. They can take their own photos. Yep, I'm surrounded by people who don't get it.)

Belladune also sent me some yummy yarn and a crochet how-to which she wrote that constitutes the first time crochet instructions ever made sense to me! Her sample of single and double crochet helped me understand a lot better. She also included a crocheted wash cloth.

Thanks so much for everything Belladune! I loved being your partner!

At long last, I finally got around to taking pictures of the lovely things Mod35tBabe made for me.


Awesome appliqued shopping bag (with handy inside pocket that matches the flower!)


Wristlet with quotes from the Big Bang Theory...


Mini painting (4" x 4") inspired by Aborigine dot-style paintings and Robert Frost's The Road Less Travelled poem. She also sent a little Australian flag and emailed me a dictionary with Australian Aboriginal words in it.

Thanks for everything, Mod35tBabe, it was great swapping with you!

Wooooo! I got spoiled by dreadlocklove!! Really, really spoiled. I mean that- you will not believe the amount of work she did for me. See for yourself:

 Here we have an awesome book called Freaks & Fire: The Underground Reinvention of Circus, fingerless gloves to keep my hands warm while I'm practicing with my new crocheted poi (*love!*), and a DVD from www.homeofpoi.com called the Backyard Spinners' Guide to Fire. I suppose that's another way to keep my hands warm. lol.

Dreadlocklove is not only a fantastic partner, she's a crocheting machine!!


This here is a scarf for me to wear while I'm on my stilts. It's 20' feet long!! She's insane. This would have taken me about 3 years to knit. I'll try to remember to get someone to take action shots of it on Wednesday at my regular circus night.

I could not love this package any more than I do. Dreadlocklove, I totally want to swap with you again! You're the best! Now I have massive swap anxiety...

Gifts from KrisCreates I received on Friday... I'm a tardy poster. Everything is great.

Beads and knitted head band- I have no idea what stitch she used, but I love it. It's got a little wavy pattern on it you might not see in the photos.

Charms, including both one related to horses, and one you can put your own photo in!


The whole pile of loot: package of hair wraps she says are great for holding dreads back out of your crafting, a dread decoration with bright colours and feathers (so fun!), embroidery floss (i mentioned that my plan is to have a lot of wraps in my hair when it's completed), a cute head band made from an upcycled belt, a bright orange toque that I'm dying to wear (it's 41 celcius right now, it's gonna have to wait a few weeks), plus the beads and charms.

Thanks for being such a great partner, KrisCreates!
