my pkg arrived!!!

Whistley did a wonderful job of spoiling me   Grin

everything was wrapped in my favorite design (chevrons)

and then, she did my favorite trick of including CANDY for each letter, with a cute
tag attached that explained all of the items she crafted!!

so I got Kit Kat + Almond Joy + Reese's PB Egg + Eggs (bubble gum) + a Nest (coconut)

and on to the surprises!!
letter K = a lovely Knot Bag, which will be great for my knitting projects
(love this fabric)

letter A = Avian stitch markers (adorable, and I love this type!)

letter R = a Rug for my mug (adorable fabric, and check out the stitching on it!  impressive!!
definitely a labor of love~)

letter E = Embroidered minion hoop  (cannot tell you how much this made me smile  Smiley

and letter N = Needlebook with balloon from UP on it (another favorite movie!!) & now that
I'm doing more hooplas, I need this to keep track of my needles!

I cannot thank you enough, Emily -- a huge amt of work went into this pkg & is MUCH appreciated!!
I hope others can get a small sense of this pkg from my pics -- enjoy!!

I'm finally getting around to posting pics after being out of town!

Got a lovely pkg from sammylouise40 -- she really surprised me!

First, the box itself was so pretty!

Opened to see this:

the mug is fantastic -- love me some caffeine & can't wait to use it for my morning cafe!

next we have:

with a lovely birdie card, a sweet necklace with a bird in cage that she handmade with clay,
AND a gorgeous piece of art!!  it's a book tree, made from a page from a book & painted,
I think? 

Thank you, thank you so much, Sammantha!!  You are so very talented  Smiley
Oh, and I know I don't take the best pics, so if you have any to share, please chime in!

thanks for the sweet compliments on my hoop (learned cross stitch long ago, but
haven't done it in approx 30 yrs, LOL) and that was my first time finishing it off in a hoop,
so was pretty nervous about sending....
the tardis seemed like a perfect design -- it pops out more on one side than the other,
but I'm just happy that y'all could tell what it was    Grin

and my big news is that my pkg arrived from greybird!!

you are so talented, and I love it all!

let me get the pics from my phone to computer to here, and I'll finish posting.....

ok, here we go --
first, a lovely card (made by RockMyGypsySoul) and 2 hoops for my new hoopla craze Smiley

next, 2 pretty pendants inspired by my pinterest:

(the black cord is adjustable -- fantastic!)

and finally, not just one, but THREE sets of stitch markers!!  Love them all!!
Thanks so so so so  much for fulfilling my wishes  Smiley  You are a doll!!

(and I realize my pics are crummy, so if you have better ones, plz post!)

and made a pretty heart decoration for hanging
and included CANDY (which I've already dug into -- M&Ms plus Twizzlers!!)
thanks so much, partner!

Ahhhh, the holiday of LOVE is upon us!   Do you LOVE the thought of making crafty goodness for someone -- handmade cards, hearts, birds, flowers. . . . ?  And who doesn't love receiving handmade crafty love???  Join us in this Sweet and Easy Valentine's Day Swap!

check out some previous galleries Smiley  note that I've lowered the size requirement this time,
since we don't have as much time to craft, but you can always spoil your partner  Smiley



VERY IMPORTANT. . . Please read before signing up:
Because this is a small swap with a short crafting period (a little less than 2 weeks) it is very important that you are positive you can commit to the cost and time for this swap before you join.  No one wants to be flaked on, especially on Valentines Day!  Also, since this is a small swap, make sure you can craft the loveliest, sweetest valentine package to the best of your abilities, in the amount of time given.  If you arent willing to do this, please do not sign up.

Now, for the nitty-gritty details:

** This swap has 3 parts:
a small (1 point) crafted item......since we have a short crafting time this round, make at least 1 small to medium-ish item for your Craftster Valentine, and spoiling is encouraged if you have the time!  
For more info on how to evaluate points, please visit http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229624.msg3712343#msg3712343

** You will craft a handmade Valentine. . . it can be crafted from whatever medium you choose (paper, felt, fabric, clay, etc.)

** You will also send some treats/sweets for your Valentine.

Additional requirements:

**DC#s are required for US swappers.
**PM both your partner AND organizer (thats me!) when you send AND when you receive.
**I highly recommend photographing your swap package before you send, just in case your partner cant post photos in the gallery.
**Post photos of your goodies in the gallery when you receive them from your partner.  I try to give speedy feedback once swap requirements are met, so the sooner you post, the sooner I give feedback!
**I would like for everyone to post in the thread at least once a week so I know you are alive, kicking, and crafting.  This constitutes good communication and makes the swaps more fun for everyone!
**First time swappers that meet Craftster swap requirements are welcome!

*****Please label all PM's to the organizer as VALENTINE SWAP.*****

If you want to participate, fill out this information to send to organizer, with VALENTINE SWAP QUESTIONNAIRE as the label:

also, for anyone browsing....I added Hello Kitty packing tape, mini canvases & graphite sticks to my Other Supplies area:
