I received a TON of bath items, a cd full of bathtime music, a poster and even some make-up samples to play with from my angel, Gougeaway! One of my partners had gone awol for a while, so she stepped in to be my angel. Eventually, my other partner sent, so this was a sweet bonus package! Thanks again!
Okay, my husband got the digital camera working, so here are the pictures of what I got from Animegirlie. Don't get too jealous girls, it isn't ladylike!
Isn't that soooo cute? I love it and it's totally going up in my crafting space soon! I adore it!
She included this beautiful pouch (amazing zipper work, by the way!) and included a little embroidery kit. There's some floss, a needle, fabric and although it's not pictured, she also sent instructions for several different types of stitches!
Another shot of the pouch so you can see the pretty lining fabric! This package completely made my day! Thanks again, Animegirlie!
Okay, simplyfussfree has received and is a bit busy at the moment, so I'll post some pictures of what I sent her. I forgot to take pictures of over half the items I sent (doh!), but I do have pictures of the two largest items for you to look at.
First, my attempt at a log cabin style pillow. She had this on her wist and I think they're so cute, so I wanted to try one. Who knew quilting was so hard? I think it came out looking okay for a first try, but I'm going to have to practice some before I ever attempt one of these again.
This is a wee bird that my simplyfussfree requested. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, although the attachment of the wings is something I want to improve if I make one of these again.
The non-pictured items I sent include a headband, keychain and embossed candle. Hopefully, simplyfussfree will share some pictures of those.
Thanks for all the compliments and I'm so glad you like it, Animegirlie!
Here's a little look at the ten cards I made specially for this swap:
I also included ten of the cherry blossom stamped cards and then several cards that I've bought from other crafters out there. I figured since this is just a summer fling, I should let Animegirlie know her other options out there.
Catpants sent me the most amazing package of summery goodies! She included an awesome picture frame (don't we all just adore rickrack?), a pouch for my sunglasses, two really cute barrettes, a headband that fits perfectly over my thick, unruly hair, a beautiful shell necklace and to top it all off, a Karl sticker! Who could ask for more? I was totally spoiled! Thanks so much, Catpants. You're making me enjoy summer even more!
I was away for 5 days and when I returned I had received a lovely package from loves2experiment!
She sent along the cutest little card with a beautiful recipe book full of dishes I can't wait to make and a sweet little ladybug pouch/coin purse to send along to my sister-in-law.
I tried to get another shot of the recipe book just to show how many recipes she put in and how lovely it looked. Along with the recipes she put cute little comments on each page and it's really great. I'm so pleased! Thanks again!
