1  Re: Under the Sea gallery! in The Swap Gallery by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: September 18, 2014 05:22:23 AM

I realized as I was getting ready for work this morning, that I had created an unintentional shrine to sea turtles in the corner of my bedroom!  Grin
(Of course it's crooked...)
Anyhow...the wall quilt on the door is an angel package item from one of the ongoing swaps awhile back, the wallet is from the most recent 'Make me a purse and wallet' swap, and then the EPIC felted item is from the talented PETSKIN!  Cheesy

This is the EPIC piece of artwork that I received as my angel package for this swap from the very talented felting fingers of our famous petskin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She went with my love of sea turtles and this piece of work is truly amazing!  Right now, I have it hanging from the knob of the curio cabinet in my bedroom.  I may move it.  I just want to be able to look at it as often as possible!  And as if that is not enough...(darn it, the photo is crooked)

...she sent extras!  A lovely note that incorporated some ORANGE washii tape, ORANGE "starfish"  Wink paperclips, and a box that held THREE SANDDOLLARS from Pisno Beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I received from my talented, generous, and friendly partner-BriannaB03 today!  Here's the goodies:

This is a photo of the wonderful gift bags she sewed for me to use as wrapping for holiday gifts!  I truly think that incorporating handmade into any gift for someone really adds to its significance.  I already know where the one with the roses is going, and I already know what the recipient is going to say:  "So beautiful...so beautiful!"  Cheesy

This is a photo of the TWENTY FIVE paper bows she made me to attach to the gifts I give out at holiday time!  Aren't they awesome??!!  Shocked

This photo is of four handmade soaps that Brianna made for me to include in the bath sets that I'm making to give out as gifts for the holidays.  My DD and I think they are so pretty and smell soooo good!

Thank you so much partner  Cheesy!  I love my swap package and I hope you get yours soon!

Ok...feast your eyes!  The superbly talented AND generous brandy agreed to do a personal swap with me, for some extraordinarily beautiful and well made zipper pouches.  When I told her I could really use 30, she asked if I was crazy (BTW...the answer is yes!  Wink), but then she sent so many items it was like Xmas-and none of it is for me!   Grin

The first photo shows the aforementioned zipper pouches, plus ladybug themed ribbon and a bumblebee stamp!   Cheesy  So thoughtful...  It also shows these really nifty wallet-type items that you could use as a checkbook holder, money, etc...  She made three of these and included a dollar in one of them!  Shocked  (I was laid off for the summer and still haven't received a full paycheck yet...that dollar made me smile!  Roll Eyes)

The second and third photos show a "sleep-over" set that she said were for my DDs...they both have drawstring bags, a toiletries zipper pouch, and a pillowcase!  What a great idea!

She also sent me a lovely note on cute crafted stationery.  Cheesy

My package to you is not nearly as wonderful or generous and I am indebted to you....just let me know what you want.....

I first have to apologize to ActsofCraftiness for my not contacting her sooner to let her know that I received this wonderful claim, or to post photos.  We had training last week at a place that's about 40 miles away from my home and it was just so tiring, all I did when I got home was eat and sleep.

But as you can see, the claim is AWESOME!  She sent some butterfly bunting, butterfly cutouts, and butterfly & dot confetti for my DD's upcoming Bat Mitzvah in June!  I LOVE IT!  Thank you so very much!

(I'm sorry the photo came out crooked, I'm not sure why it did.)

This is a photo of the box that my items came in.  I just had to take it b/c I almost never get packages from outside the US, and this one was so obviously Canadian!  Grin

This is a photo of the box (inside the outer wrapping) that my items came in.  I had to take a photo of this too b/c it made me giggle...not only is it cute, but my partner in this swap listed Hello Kitty as one of her themes...if I had gotten my package sooner, I could have sent her items from me in this box.   Wink

THIS IS MY PURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Shocked Grin  I always ask for purses on the larger side b/c I never travel light.   Cheesy  This is amazing!  So beautiful, I'm almost afraid to use it!

THIS IS MY WALLET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shocked Shocked Grin Grin  It is such a piece of art!  I literally yelped when I opened the package and saw this!  And if you open the zipper in the back of it, the lining is green...just like the different shades of color the ocean can be!
...and a photo of the inside of the epic wallet!

She also sent two packages of CHOCOLATE COVERED SMARTIES, a KIT KAT BAR WITH FRENCH WRITING ON IT, and an AERO CHOCOLATE BAR!  I've never seen choc. covered smarties in the US, the kit kat bar with the French writing made me giggle (DS took French in high school all four years and still doesn't have a clue how to say anything... Roll Eyes), and the aero bar went to DH. 

Thank you so much, dfabbric, for an amazing package and twistedbeader, for organizing this swap!

I also received from brandy today!  These photos are of the generous package she sent me!  She had claimed me for four pouches, but also sent four travel tissue holders (I already know who I'm giving three of them to!), and a re-usuable snack bag (ladybug fabric)!

The size and craftsmanship on these are amazing, and I turned one of the pouches around so you could see the bottom.  I don't know the name for it, but it's made so the pouch will sit flat.

I also posted a photo of the wrapping she used...so pretty, and I will re-use it!

I'm going to use these to put soap, soap savers, and a washcloth that I crochet in there for holiday gifts-these are perfect!  Thank you!

This is a photo of the AWESOME water bottle holders that rscowtown created for me and my two DDs!  I am sooooo pleased with how they came out and especially that she made one for me as well!  Grin

The fabric choices are great...the inside fabric is different from the outside...of course I am partial to the orange one.   Wink

(Modeled by our waterbottles...sorry I was out of designer water, rscowtown!  Wink Grin)
