1  Re: Pocket Letter Swap 1 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by ChameleonHound on: June 19, 2016 03:37:40 PM
I'm loving all the pocket letters that have been posted the past week!

Check out this really cool PL I got from bec99, and sorry it took me so long to post pics:

She chose the Quotes from My Pinterest theme, with some other themes like birds and spring mixed in there too. And everything was fantastically colorful, including the paper it was wrapped in! Lots of goodies too.

Here are some of my faves close up. The one with the red background says "May my heart be kind, my mind fierce and my spirit brave" - Kate Forsyth.

Thanks Bec!

I got my lovely pocket letter from LadybugsAndBumblebees! Look at all of this colorful goodness!

And the backs and goodies:

I love these! There's just so much color, which really brightened up my weekend (and I needed it). I think the 3 in the middle row are my favorites, but the carrot's-eye-view is really cute too! And that fantastic leaf is now adorning my bulletin board, I added all of my crafty goodies right into my *newly organized* crafting box, and the blues brothers button went on my button-covered messenger bag. Thank you for everything LadybugsAndBumblebees!

I got a fantastic box of sunshine from alwaysinmyroom today!!! This was exactly what I needed after a long day at work, cleaning at home and fighting off a cold all the while. Lookit all the yellow goodies!

Kinda clockwise from the purple there is a bath pillow, buttons and paper beads, yummy tea, a book in Japanese (I think), black raspberry soap, candy, the cutest sewn hand towels, minion duct tape, a fiber bookmark, some lovely knit wrist warmers and the pattern too!

She also made a FANTASTIC fabric bowl that I adore, a cute little stuffie with the silliest grin, and a very pretty sun catcher. And the card she sent is beautiful too, with the heart made from handmade fabric. <3

Thanks for the awesome swap, alwaysinmyroom!

Yay, I'm glad you liked it! Here's another couple of pictures of the wreath in the dark to get the lights:

And the orange cracker-looking thing has sparklers in it! I guess I was trying to bring light and fun to both your days and nights with this box, haha.  But yeah, I think outside is the way to go. Wink

I got my second unloved creature surprise in the mail today! Keeping with the unloved ocean critters theme, I got this really cool altered tin from WaveLight23478:

She decided to craft an octopus in his environment because her fourth grade students said "octopus was one of the grossest and biggest pests in the ocean". Talk about unloved! I hope they all learn about how amazingly cool these critters are. Smiley Anyway, I love this little tin. I feel like I'm peeking into a tide pool, and I love the sponges and sea star in there too! Thanks WaveLight!!!

Wow, I leave for one weekend and I have 3 pages to catch up on! Everything so far is fabulous, but that mola mola looks soooo realistic that I was seriously confused when I saw the picture and it was laying in a flower bed! And The axolotl in a jar is brilliant!

BUT prepare to be super jealous of the tiny critter I got from La Chapa:

It's a nudibranch! A Chromodoris magnifica to be specific. Smiley I LOVE HIM. You might be able to tell from my avatar that I have a bit of a thing for these lil' sea slugs. His stitches are so tidy and perfect and his little gills are so cute and that little face... Okay, they don't really have faces but whatever I like it. I also love that he's a tiny critter for the purposes of the swap but he's a giant among his own kind. Thank you La Chapa!!!!

I actually finished an embroidery project this month! Wooo!

Here is the bluebird I stitched for my grandmother's birthday. I guess technically it doesn't count as hoopla because it didn't stay on the hoop - it was added to a handmade tote bag. But I finished a thing! I feel accomplished!  Grin

I appliqued some scrap fabrics with interfacing, and used back and satin stitches to tack everything down nicely and add details. Here's the finished bag:

Ooooh, I get to start the gallery!  Cheesy

I got my lovely art yesterday, and my mystery sender was geekgirl1000100:

This is done with gelatos, ink, and sharpie. I love all of the textures going on here. So cool! Thanks for the art geekgirl!

If you think that tiny crocheted robin is cute, check out this owl! Another amazing spikefan creation. Smiley

I love him! Thank you!
