I just pressed the 'images only' button and gloried in all of the ideas I now have for MORE MORE MORE inchie houses.  The variety of materials that folks snuck in on top of paper has me drooling.

Yea!  My final inchie house has arrived from Fancy Butch!  It matches Cackle's pastel cottage perfectly. Cheesy

This note was enclosed:
Dear Goldilocks, if you find yourself in the Woodbury Woods please drop by for some porridge.



And here's Woodbury Woods as seen in the house of Wise One.  Nice, eh?

You know you've made a friend when the husband walks in with a package and asks, 'Are we going to visit Edel?' then sits down and waits while I open the package bursting at the seams.  He grabs for the lollypops thus no evidence of them except wrappers.



Check out this flamingo pillow.  It fits in with our quirky decorating.  Froggie likes it as much as me!  This will go into the Airstream when we travel and remain in our apartment for the rest of the time.  It's a perfect match for our purple sofa!  Yes, I did say purple.



A close-up to make you all jealous and to show off Edel's amazing art skills.  I really like artistic objects that are functional.  And this is certainly one, eh?!  Check out that vintage fabric and the ribbon and pompoms.  LOVE IT! 



Art can be hereditary too.  Edel's daughter got involved in this swap and made this SPECTACULAR stencil for a shirt for me!!!  Molly, I thank you so much for the thoughtful idea of me and my hubby as the hands.  There will be a special treat for you in Package #3  Cheesy  It fits me perfectly and I will think of you every time I wear it.  Huggs.



And for the final part of the package.  A Moresbag and a fully loaded Moresbag kit to make my own.  With extra directions on how to add a longer shoulder strap for those shopping trips when the bag is loaded with heavy items.  Our town recently banned plastic grocery bags citing Ireland as 'if they can do it, so can we.'  HAH!  I'm done with carrying my groceries out to the car in my arms with oranges rolling across the parking lot! 



You know, this swap is interesting in that it's different than the others I've participated in.  I really feel like I'm getting to know my partner.  And I feel like my partner is getting to know me.  See that tree fabric?  It's done in the Henri Matisse style who is my all time favorite artist.  Everything that Edel has made for me fits into my life seamlessly.  I guess this is why the swap is so long, eh?  It really takes the crafting for a 'stranger' to a whole new level.



RebelTrendsetter - thank you for putting together this swap and making such a huge commitment over such a long time period. 

Edel and Molly - thank you sooooo much for such a great package!  I have to go now to iron my pillow and eat some of that decadent European chocolate while I make another grocery bag with my DIY kit  Grin

Check this one out!  Cackle sent a gorgeous liddle gem of a country cottage in pastels.  All wrapped up in matching pink tissue paper.





And check out the roofing material.  No tar paper here! 



Cackle, thank you so much for such a sweet tiny house.  I am excited for my new neighborhood and hoping to make many more tiny homes!!!  Are we gonna have an Inchie House Part 2 Huh?

EdelC - I'm soooo glad you like the DIY kits.  It's one of those things we seem to have in common...
must make something.  must make something.  must make something.
My fingers seem to be happiest when they're moving  Cheesy

As for the heartstrings, when you have a chance, check out some of her other stuff.  This Tammy Gilley lady is amazing with her creativity and the amount of crafty art she produces!  Mostly happy happy colors and themes.  It doesn't look like she does the Joggles classes anymore, but if I pore over her photos and daily posts, I get more and more and more ideas.  She makes me want to do that fabric art journal pages swap that Smmarrt has proposed.

I received a wonderful package from Artista83!  Artista83, if you have better photos, please post them if you'd like.  Thanks so much for such creativity!  These patches are great and the patch kit is fantastic.

wise one, did the patches show up at your mothers yet?
Hmmmm...  I don't see that you've sent me a PM with the DC number saying that you've shipped.  Did I miss something?  Artista, I've looked through all of my PMs in my inbox and I've checked the first page with CraftsUnderground's tracking of all the shipped/received and she's not showing it either.  Hmmm.
