hey everyone! Sorry I disappeared from the craftster world there for a while... I'm glad to see that everyone has their packages and the rest of the goodies were so cool! Yay! Good job to everyone.

So on to my exciting announcement... I've been whiling away my online time on an entirely new brand of web forums, since last week when I found out...

I'm gonna be a MOM!!!

lol... my husband and I ate some of those while driving around the French countryside. We thought they were good then, but during Easter we couldn't find a single Cadbury Creme Egg in all of Paris, and grew to loathe those ubiquitous Kinder Eggs...

I hope you can use ANOTHER pin cusion lol-i got a little nervous when your letter said you made a twin pin cusion for yourself...I thought crap wait there's one in the mail  hahaha

a girl can never have too many pin cushions!!! Plus the big chicken will be less likely to get covered in fabric or roll under the table when I'm in the middle of a project!

so you know that one Austin Powers movie, when Mini-Me gets really excited and he runs around screaming "EEEEEEEEEEE?"

That was totally me last night. My package from vegiegirl came and let me just start out by saying that everything in it was really cool! So bring on the pictures!

Hmmm, looks like I got a box of pink tissue paper! Oh wait, I have to dig in there?


I've never been a fan of saving the best for last. So here is the best thing first! A pin cushion shaped like a chicken!!!!!!

It even came with pins! I love the retro fabric, and his little blue mo-hawk! Super awesome!

Next we have... a pink glass vase! vegiegirl recommended that I use it for my crochet hooks.


BUT, since I already have a case for my crochet hooks (my mom bought it at a garage sale)...

(in this picture you can see the duplicate pin cushion I made)

... I found the perfect use for it!

it looks really pretty with a candle inside. My husband was previously using a sawed-off beer can as a votive holder, so this is much much better!

Next we have... some hand-made envelopes!

These will come in handy since I have a friend who just moved to Africa, and I promised I'd write!

Here they are all spread out so you can see the colors:

I really love the red and blue ones.

And last but not least, a knitted flower pin!

I have a pair of pants that are the same color purple, so this will go great with them!

I really like everything, especially the chicken! AND, as a bonus, I got all this awesome pink tissue paper!

Some of it is already enjoying its new life wrapping a present for my brother-in-law.

Yay! Thanks so much!

just so you guys can get a feel for how long this swap has taken in chicken time...

I got the chicks two days before we were assigned our swap partners. Back then they were tiny little fuzzybutts. Here they are yesterday, almost a month later:

yay! I'm so glad you liked everything! it was really fun to make and I had just enough yellow fabric left over to make an identical pincushion for myself. So now we have twin pincushions!

I can't wait to get my package... I hoped it would come today but no-show. The UPS truck came right after I got home and I had my hopes up, even though I know you sent the package in the regular mail... it was a Barack Obama t-shirt my husband ordered last week. DOH!! I mean yay for Obama, but come on, where's my loot???

;P

edit: here's a video of me using the juggling bags... crappily! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=527fGAHFkYc

I saw a button necklace in a store once and it was $300!  I was like, WTF? 

Maybe the buttons were made out of uranium.
