I'm glad you like it all! I knew nothing about Avatar, so I had to do a little research. Hope I put the right things on the shirt.  Smiley My friend's son is also named Kaden and ALSO very much into Thomas and he told me he wants "a bag for my choo-choos" from Santa, so I guess I'm making another one. Smiley

hey lemon floor wax, the heron shirt is beautiful! where did you get the stencil?
Thanks  Grin One of my firs stencil jobs. I made the stencil, just did a GIS for heron until I found one I liked, outlined it in paint shop pro, then printed it out and placed it over acetate and ut away everthing shaped like a bird...it worked rather well, i think.

Are those typewriter keys on your bracelet, Lemon?  Smiley
Faux. I keep hoping I'll find a big stash of old, cool typewriters (heck, I'd settle for one at Goodwill). But they're art paper from a company whose name escapes me at the moment, they just happned to fit perfectly in the circles. Smiley

Here are some action shots of the awesome things zenochka sent for my kids!
Stephen in his Blue's clues shirt (worn to preschool once, on a snow day once and to sleep once...all in one week!):

Blue's Clue's Hoodie (worn pretty much everywhere everyday):

and here's my girl Bridget in her Strawberry Shortcake shirt playing with her "no man", giving her some "loves":


Both my kids have inherited this thing from my mom that causes them to close their eyes or look away for 99% of all photos. It drives me nuts; I almost never get a picture of them looking AT the camera with their eyes open.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for swapping with me, Cheryl! Let me know when your stuff arrives! I hope your kiddos like it. USPS.com keeps telling me it has been acceppted at my local post office...well, duh, I KNOW I took it there. DC only works if they bother to update it, I guess! Great swap! Grin I love seeing what everyone has come up with.

EDITED TO ADD: I didn't get pics of the blankets because we use them in the car. They're the perfect size! They keep little hands oasty while we're driving to school/wherever. The kids love them!

I am totally in LOVE with my  owl bag. I have gotten about 900 compliments on it (because I use it as a diaper bag so it has to go everywhere I go with da kids) and when I tell people it's hand made they just freak out! so THANK YOU JUNGRRL!!!! I don't have any action shots of it yet, but the embroidery and the detail work inside are stellar! Oh, and the little felt owl is currently holding my pins. Wink
Here are some pics of the things I sent to moazogotl:
shirt with stencilled heron:

purse mirror with embellished back showing a swallow flying home (I didn't get a pic of the case I made):

and bracelet featuring some of her favorite birds and the word "FLY":


Thanks again to everyone! I had fun making and receiving! I heart Crafters and their birdy goodness! Smiley

Okay, here are the pics of my pony. I have no before pic because I'm a dummy and got through cutting her head off and taking her hair out before thinking, "Um yeah, I should have taken a picture of her..."
She was one of the new fangled ones, though, and had some kind of weird jewel thing in her side (?) which is part of her unique symbol. Here's the pony I made for Moose Hat, Rockin' Piper:

better (?) view of her symbol, which is sculpted bagpipes:

She was orignally a white pony, but I dyed her red because Hanna said that was her favorite color. Really, she's red in real life, not salmon-ish. I also re-rooted her hair with white, yellow, orange and peach hair and curled it. I re-painted her eyes green, too and sealed all the painted parts. She has an ear ring in one ear and a bead necklace. Oh, I think I forgot to tell you, Hanna, but I cut the magnet out of her hoof and put the plastic piece back on, in case you wanted to display her on your computer. Smiley
Here is the cutie that came to live with me:

She's a super cute cow girl with a shirt, boots, chaps and her own bandana, SCULPTED hat and SCULPTED bird friend. I love her! She's super sweet and she sits by my computer. Thanks so much for swapping with me, Hanna! Smiley
Edited because it is late and I can't spell  Tongue

I'm here! I have loved this swap! I've been at my mom's house all week and she has dial up, so I haven't posted/checked my mail much. (I'm so spoilied, I won't take anything under cable now!  Roll Eyes) Anyhow, all is well and this has been MUCH fun.
