Hi everybody, sorry I've been so out of touch (especially you, shylittlegoddess!) May turned out to be a really tough month at work and I have not been able to post pictures of my AWESOME SWAP BOOTY until now! shylittlegoddess was an excellent swapper, everything she made was really suited to my favorite colors and tastes, and she made things which she knew I could use!
First there is the Uncle Shelby's Calendar!
It has a different "tip" from Uncle Shelby's Handbook for every month! She even started it at May 06 so I can use it right away! Here's May:
Next, there's this awesome needle case with a set of needles and two balls of cool eyelash yarn! Blue and brown are my favorite colors and this yarn will be perfect to knit into a scarf I've been planning for my mom.
I can't decide which of the next two are my favorite. Both of these crafts require a lot of time and natural talent, neither of which I can seem to find lately. First is the tote. It has hand painted pictures from Where the Sidewalk Ends - some of my very favorites.
and the detail:
I love the adaptation of ickle me pickle me tickle me too!
finally, shylittlegoddess made me the coolest personalized journal! it has my name on it, with two of my FAVORITE POEMS OF ALL TIME on the cover - and a few more on the inside! Best of all, there's a foldout on the first page with beautiful drawings and original poetry!
Thanks so much Leah, that is the perfect first page for what I hope will become a journal full of creativity. I've already started filling in my next knitting project and it's going to be my craft journal. Thanks a billion for your patience too. Everything is finally finished and I'll be sending in the morning! I hope it's worth the wait!
