Small Crafted Item:

Large Crafted Item(s):

Store-bought Item(s):

Surprise Item:

My final package was the surprise item.  Isn't the felted bunny a beauty?!?  I can't get over how perfectly formed it is!!  My secret FOC has mad felting skills!!!  In retrospect, the cryptic note I received with my 3rd package makes perfect sense Wink  My secret FOC is none other than the talented radal16!  I feel totally spoiled by all the lovely packages she sent to me over the past month.  Thanks for making my first FOC swap an unforgettable experience!!!

I had trouble getting on Craftster last night...but here's the wonderful "4th mailout" package I received in place of my "3rd" package.  My awesome secret FOC left a short note saying that the "3rd" package will be sent at a later date Cheesy

She sent me a stack of 7 FQs with celtic knot prints!!!  They're beautiful Smiley  I love fabric...and she obviously knows it.  She also sent me a package of Hello Kitty Band-Aids Smiley  Thanks again, secret FOC.  I can't wait to find out your identity!!  To date, I have things narrowed down to a list of 9 possibilities Tongue

I received from my secret FOC today and I loved everything she sent!  Her theme for my 'big swap item' was "good things come in small packages" Cheesy  Not only is she an excellent crafter, she's also a super post stalker Shocked  Without further ado, here are pictures of the items she sent!

The packaging:

The origami boxes are soooo pretty.  I love Japanese-themed crafty items and these were adorable!

In the 1st box I opened, I found these:

Yep.  She managed to figure out that I love all things Hello Kitty, Tare Panda and Nijntje!!!  I love these shrinky dinks earrings!!!

In the 2nd, 3rd and 4th boxes:

Necklaces!!!  I take crappy pictures, but the first neckace has deep blue/green beans beads, the second has orange-red beads and the last one is the color of amethyst Smiley 

The 5th, 6th and 7th boxes:

Two gorgeous beaded bracelets (again, please excuse my lack of photography skills...).  One is purple/silver and the other is jet black.  I can't even begin to fathom how she made them!  One of these boxes contained a pair of knitted hairclip in black and red (my favourite colors!). 

You'd think she has done enough to make me the best accessorized gal in town.  Nope, there's more!  These are the items that she couldn't fit into the little origami boxes:

She sent me a pair of hairsticks, a wonderful set of bunny notecards, 2 lovely fulled (?) flower barrettes and 2 folded fabric hairclips!!!

Thank you kindly, secret FOC Cheesy  You definitely made my day!

You guys are gonna be envious when you see the lovely take-out binder that mjadams created for me!!!  It’s brilliant!  Without further ado, here is what she made for me:

I love the colors (blues, oak and reds) and it matches my kitchen perfectly!  The cover is done with paper, fabric and stickers.  The saying "Let them eat take out" is perfect Smiley  There are individual plastic slots for me to put my menus and keep them clean.  I’ve already started adding some (i.e. whatever I could find in my utility drawer) of my menus to the binder.  By the end of the week, I will have freed up more space in my drawers for more miscellaneous junk Tongue   Here's an action shot:  

She also sent me the following accessories for the binder:

Let’s see.  Star stickers (to rate the restaurants), vellum stickers, OHP markers, clippy doodads to mark off my favourite restaurants (or perhaps I should just mark them Monday through Friday and plan my entire week’s worth of take-out food???) and food-themed erasers.

To top it off, she totally spoiled me with a Hello Kitty surprise and a Tare Panda surprise  Shocked  

Thank you mjadams for the wonderful swap package!  I love everything  Kiss

Here's the yummy cupcake surprise that nevermore crafted for me Cheesy  It was supposed to be a hat, but I have a big noggin and it didn't fit  Cry  No worries, it looks super adorable as a cupcake stuffie!

As a bonus, she also sent me a small bundle of hand spun yarn to play with!  It's sooooo soft.  I think she said it was merino wool Cheesy  

I love everything!  Thanks nevermore!!

Sorry for the delay in posting pictures of my lovely wallet from luciabug!

Exterior shot:

luciabug had a bunch of fabric swatches and I picked out my favourite Smiley  It's a purplish-gray plaid with pink, teal and gold markings.  I love the fabric!    

Interior shot:

There are six slots for my cards, a huge coin purse pocket, and two more pockets for my bills.  The light aquamarine pieces are made from a buttery soft leather.  Scrumptious Smiley  

Thank you kindly, luciabug!  I've not had a chance to transfer everything from my current wallet into my new wallet Tongue  This weekend has been a crazy one for me!

I received a swap package from "?" this evening.  I'm serious.  The person put a big question mark where the return address info is usually found.  Here are the contents of that package:

Just in time for Spring Cleaning Tongue  An awesome fear monster to help me cope with my fear of household chores!  The monster has an extra set of hands to conquer my messy kitchen!  She holds a feather duster to scare away all the dust bunnies that are hiding under my kitchen appliances.  My secret FOC partner also sent me a pair of rubber gloves (to help me get started?) and a recipe for cocoa creme fraiche cupcakes!!  I have a feeling that I will use the cupcake recipe before the rubber gloves Tongue  Everything is just perfect!  It's really weird not being able to send a pm to thank a person for an awesome swap package, so here goes.  Thank you kindly, secret FOC Cheesy
