That said, you'll note I'm not in either this month.  I have birthday gifts overdue to family plus a show I need inventory for, etc.  And if I join, I can't be one of those people that claims once or twice...nope, I need to be at my max all the time!  Roll Eyes

You have more willpower than me!  I signed up again and immediately thought about all the things I need to sew up this month (valentines, get well and birthday gifts) so I might actually be one of the small claimers this month if I claim at all...it's so hard not to look at the lists.  I always send all 13 of my nieces and nephews handmade valentine gifts, I like to make them myself..but this year swaps have taken up so much of my time. I think I'll do easter gifts this year instead so I have more time to get them some goodies out Smiley. I'm addicted to swapping and ohhhh so many good ones keep popping up!  Hopefully next month I'll be back full blast, nothing much going on until the summer

Today I got the cutest lil gnome hoopla from mcook72677, he makes me so happy!  Check out the mushroom fabric, I likey.  The stitching on him is awesome, I love the little x's and o's on his hat and his adorable dangly legs.  Thanks so much mcook!

Mama24boyz has claimed me a LOT in the ongoing swaps, and each time she claims me I get crazy excited because I get awesome stuff like this

1. A 10th Doctor doll!!!  His head turns, his tie dangles, and I'm pretty sure that I could get him nekkid on top but I haven't fully tried yet, but trust that I will (winkie).  My daughter freaked out and immediately begged me to ask mama24boys to make her "boo", the 11th doctor.

Check out this hair, it lays flat or you can scruff it up a bit....love that messy hair, we've been styling it since we got him

2. A super soft adorable bunny basket and bonus bunny ball!  My daughter snatched these up quick and wasn't too happy with me that I made her bring them back until I could get a picture of them.  So stinkin cute.  

Thanks so much mama24boyz....you never stop surprising me!

I got my claims from Eiseldora today.

First I got a custom (I loved having the options!) ear flap hat and oooooohhh it's perfect size and so comfy!  I look like a crazy woman in hats, but I'm totally going to rock this one...if I can get it away from my daughter.  She immediately snatched it up and is still wearing it around the house.  I love how it's not just straight red, it has hints of color in there

Next, I got a freakin PILE of Dr Who pins...I was excited to get 4 but Eiseldora totally spoiled me!  I love every one of them.  I'll just have to hold onto these for awhile and just snuggle them. Thanks so much Eiseldora!

I just got two awesome claims in

First, UnderTheMountain claimed me for a Yoda hat for my niece...yeee!  She sent me a surprise set of ball earrings that I had cooed all over!!  I'm mailing the hat off to my niece today so I'll hopefully be able to post an action shot soon. I haven't wore earrings in years but I just loved the ball earrings UTD had made for someone else.  I tried for a second to put them on but I didn't want to struggle with it and mess up my ears so I'm going to use my daughters starter earrings to ease my ears into wearing earrings again, because these are just too adorable and I love how light they are. Thanks so much UTM!

Next, luckdragon claimed me for something Dr Who woop woop.  She sent me the coolest pouch-purse, not sure what to call it but I use to have one this size that I would take into DC with me when we were dragged around for the millionth time to show everyone the sights Smiley. She embroidered a Tardis on it, I totally need to look into an embroidery machine the next time I buy a new sewing machine.  It's got a front zip pocket and also an open pocket in the back, so much storage in such a small lil package.  Ok ok and the charms are killing me, there's a lil converse shoe (for my fav 10th doctor) and on the wrist lanyard there's a Tardis!  So in addition to the awesome purse and lanyard, she also sent some fabric that I really really like!  Awesome package, love it all!  Thanks so much LuckDragon!

Here's the back with the open pocket

Ahhhh the fabric memory cards are so bright and cute!  I'm going to get started on actsofcraftiness's second set soon.  

The cowl looks super snuggly!  I rocked my hooded one from mama24boyz today and got lots of compliments Smiley

Ok those apple cozies are cracking me up, I love love love the red one, would make awesome teacher gifts!  And now the dippy question...are they actually made to snuggle apples?  Whatever the purpose, I just need a handful of those I think

I received 2 beautiful light and airy blue and white (I know your ears perked up Averia) Christmas themed pillow covers from deathbeforedishes. They are so soft and fit my pillows perfectly.  I love the lil trees and bead toppers.  I love them!

**as I'm previewing the pics they look a little muddled, so I'll take better pics tomorrow in the daylight and replace these**

Everything is so cute!!  I love the darker tree of life and the baby carrier is hilarious. My daughter never got into baby dolls Sad. She could have put a stufftie in it though
Most of the time I pick claims that I would want...and I have yet to make myself any of it, I really need to work on that next month when all my swaps have been sent

Im about to make this gallery even more awesome...I received a framed cork heart from phoenixfiredesigns and I was literally jumping all over the living room (exercise... check!). My daughter gave me the crazy eye.  The cork heart is PERFECT for my mini dining area mantel. I haven't finished decorating it just yet, but now I'm definitely motivated. I've gotten bags of corks from swaps since I have tons of ideas, it just takes me forever to do them for myself, I'm so glad I didn't attempt this, I couldn't have made it this gorgeous.  I love the neutral background and the roughness and BAM-ness of the heart.  There is also a wide ribbon hanger,  it I haven't decided on placement yet so it's standing right now.  Thank you so much PFD!

Ok I finally made myself get in gear and decided to do 9 first aid rolls.  I will be starting the rolls off with a few first aid supplies (band aids, alcohol wipes, and whatever else I can find), the things in the pic are just to show you all the pockets.  I will be making 6 in the blue fabric and the other 3 in the multicolor leaf fabric

Awhile back I did a personal swap with Anna.wahnsinn.  I sent her a bit of fabric and she sent me the most adorable Rabbids hoopla and a pile of awesome charms.   It was my fist hoopla and I'm so glad it came from the talented Anna!

Wow PFD, your bowls are humongous, and I thought my bowls were big lol, I'm glad there's enough to grip onto!  Some of the scrap pieces have the backing still on them, I didn't set the ink on those...you just have to soak them in white vinegar for 10 mins and that's supposed to set the ink.

Underthemountain, I messaged you Smiley

I got an awesome claim from kittykill yesterday.  She claimed me for a hoopla and she sent me not one....

Not two....

But THREE hooplas that made me jump up and down

I love all three of them!!  My daughter has a dandelion obsession, she has to wish on every one she finds so this reminded me of her.  I really love cute clouds, who doesn't!?  And the smallest hoopla has so much detail, I love the mix of cute little things.  I love the winter, but I'm really getting tired of this depressing lighting!  I held each one under my lamp and they still aren't as bright and happy as they are in person.  I now have 4 hooplas that I LOVE so I think I could officially start a hoopla wall..... Just need to figure out which wall.  Thanks so much kittykill, you are awesome!

The bunting is adorable, I have that chick fabric, it's one of my favs!

I received a claim from PixieVal. She sent me an awesome crochet basket to add to my monster collection of baskets I've gotten from claims, love it!  She also sent me a load of ephemera that my daughter and I had a blast going through, and I'm sure we will dig through it a million times more, so fun. There were all kinds of cools things in there...old pics, adorable monster postcards, the Simpsons stamps, shapelets templates, splatter paper, music sheet, ohhhh I can't name it all, so neat! Thanks PixieVal!
