I think teasers are tough for the people not receiving the items too. Everything looks so cool and intriguing and I'm dying to see what everything really is Smiley

Agreed!

Teamama, those are some great teasers!  I'm excited to see what your partner gets!

Oh and will I post pictures.  I will try to restrain myself, I am picture CRAZY! 

I'm so soooo glad Miss Barbara's package made it to her safely and quickly!  And I'm so happy that she loves all that she got, because I loved it all as well.  ^_^

Here goes: 
-TWO containers of different colored paper owl cutouts (Straight from my wist, how thoughtful is that??)
-A package of 'metallic natural leaves' which are very cool
-A package of apple cutouts which will decorate my classroom in September
-A cute apple tree button
-Two stamps and a block to attach them to (an owl and 'thinking of you')
-L-O-N-G fleece owl themed sock/legwarmers
-Two skeins of unusual and beautiful yarn
-A delicate amber/brown/mustard hued crystal and tree themed shrinky dink(?) charm bracelet with matching earrings!
-What Jillybeans termed a 'Clutter bracelet' made up of various green stones and tree shrinky dink (?) tree charms!
-A button/wood leaf bead charm bracelet with matching earrings...again, a very thoughtful item...Jillybeans knows why.  Kiss
-STUFFED TREES that are DECORATED WITH FACES and the season that matches them (i.e.-snow on the branches of the winter one, etc...)  They are ADORABLE and made so well!  I'm a preschool teacher and the students will LOVE these!
-An EPIC button tree that is FRAMED in a shadowbox, backed with cloud fabric!

And now, PICTURES (because Miss Barbara asked me to post them, and I love pictures so of course I will!)!


I'll start with a group shot (less the extras I added at the last minutes).  This is the only picture I took of the fleecy socks for some reason.


Aaaand the extras I added before I sent.

NOW, up close shots!  Yay!  (I had fun taking these, btw).


These are from a Martha Stewart paper punch.  Yeah, my hand really hurt after "punching all those owls" (I can hear my husband giggling from when I told him that).  I tried to punch as many different colors that I could, though.  ^_^


This bracelet is inspired by Miss Barbara's wist.  Now Im not sure of the chain, but I do believe its sterling silver.  Its been sitting in my jewelry tote for a long time in a little baggie waiting for something special.  The autumn colored beads are Swarovski crystal.  The tiny owl charms are made from shrinky dink paper that I stamped on little owls from a stamp set that I have.  I made matching earring to go along


Bonus picture, because I lurve me some pictures!


This bracelet was also inspired by an item on Miss Barbara's wist.  I made the tree charms out of shrinky dink paper and the rest of the beads are just my collection of beads.  So much chaos in one bracelet!  I call it a clutter bracelet!


Another bonus picture. 


To celebrate grandmas, I made a button bracelet from vintage buttons that were my great grandmas, with a few newer ones that Ive acquired added in (like the wooden leaves to make it more tree themed ^_^).  My great grandma was born in 1900 and lived through the great depression.  She saved everything.  So here is a little past to take for Miss Barbara to take with her on crafting journeys in the future.  And, of course, matching earrings!


Bonus picture!  Gotta love lilac trees.  They are in full swing here in the Lilac city of Spokane, WA.  I love walking outside and smelling them.  So wonderful.


Stuffie Trees that represent the four seasons!  (Again, inspired by her wist.  I became good friends with her wist).  They are made from fleece (including the leaves).  The snow is felt and the buds on the spring tree are little pom poms sewn on.  I did the tree form on the sewing machine and the rest is hand sewn on.

And a sock owl that I name Hootles.  Don't worry, Hootles is made from brand new socks (that I had in my sock animal box awaiting creation).


And of course, some more bonus pics!


And finally a framed button tree.  Again a mixture of new and vintage buttons from my great grandma. 

And that's it!
