i feel so guilty, y'all! i think most of the time half the fun of the swap is getting on the forums and gossiping, and throwing hints, and watching what everyone is up to, and most of all gossiping with your partner! and on this swap, i know i've been lax in providing that for the amazing miss sheepblue, who has had to track me down and ask me if i still had a pulse more than once this time around.
my bad, sheep! thank you so much for your patience and understanding with my crazy hectic life! now i promised pictures of the amazing goodies i got from sheepblue like, two days ago; but between technical camera difficulties and the fact that i've literally been crafting my happy hiney off every spare moment the last week (hey! i perform best under pressure, what can i say?) i'm only just now getting around to it. so, without further ado....
here is the terribly cute handmade card miss sheepblue included. in it she says many incredibly kind things that i'm quite sure i don't deserve. but i'm appreciative that she thinks them none the less!
on top of the package: a super cute halloweeny vinyl tablecloth! i think i am going to keep it in the package until halloween and set my table with it then. and when halloween is over i may use it to re-cover my arm-rest at the tattoo shop where i work! it's so cool, and very me!
next i opened this amazing business card wallet. i love star wars, and i loooooove this fabric! but that was only the beginning! check out the AWESOME business cards that were included! i will be using these for sure! haha!
next, this super duper cute and wonderfully accurate little embroidery! i will be hanging it above my crafting area in short order. i love this!
aaaand theeeen: check out this super cute teeny tiny stumpworked flower! (i put the nickel in for size reference) it is so tiny and so precious in every detail! i have no idea what i will do with it just yet, but it will be epic!
aand i got a little peepee! haha! sheepblue said she didn't make this one, but thought i needed it nonetheless! i quite agree! it's a chapstick coozy! to change your image viewing settings please click here
if you haven't already limbered up your pinning fingers, ladies, now's the time! cause it only gets more amazing from here! "eyeball" this for a minute, wouldja? how cool are all those veiny strings?
not only is it creepy cool and veiny and delightful just as it is... but check it out! it's a drawstring pouch! and it's STUFFED with whimsy awesomeness!
aaannnnddd theeeeen..... the piece de resistance! that's right -- all that major spoilage was not even the main show! in addition to everything else, ms sheepblue made me this!
this aaah-MAY-zing mini-art-quilt is so perfectly "me" it just blows me away! i can't say enough about how much i love it! from all the little starwars fabric scraps in it, to the handmade beaded sculpey skull fringe, it is amazing in every detail! and it's meticulously perfect in every stitch! i can not express enough how incredibly much i love this - it is beautiful!
sheepblue - thank you again sooo much for spoiling me so! i love everything so much, and i just hope that what i'm making for you will be half as loved as everything you've made for me! oh, and one more parting shot - here's a group loot shot - including some stick on mustaches and yummy gummy body parts that were also included!
