Mr potato head has come home this week and his wife and kids ( and me!) were delighted to see him again!
He has told us a lot of story's about his trip already!

I'm a bit jealous of him because he got to see so many beautiful places Wink

Here are the pics of the package:
First a pic of the whole family and everything he got from his host mom hockamama:


A family reunion pic: mom, dad and the kids

Thanks so much hockamama for taking such good care of mr potato head! We love the pics and everything he has brought with him!
Also a thanks to our organiser for organising this fun swap!

Hi!

So I finally got to upload my pics of the awesome stuff that I received! Sorry it took a couple of days before I could post them.

My partner really knew what I liked!
Here you can see the book: The host by Stephenie Meyer ( I'm so glad I got this book! I was wondering if I'd like this book when I saw it in the book shop but now I'm addicted to it!
You can also see the AWESOME!!!!! craftster tote! I love it! I went swimming with it already.
Then there's a very beautiful necklace of the Twilight series( I'm a big fan!) and a beautiful and very original bookmark!

Close up:

Yay I'm the first to start posting pics Cheesy
I just received my AWESOME! package from Sewenthusiastic and I love it! She really sent a lot of pretty items and I adore the shirt and shoulder bag, I always use shoulder bags so this will be put to good use! I'm sorry for the dark pictures tough, I took them in a room with a lot of natural light and I don't understand why they are so dark!
Enjoy the pics!

First a pic of all the crafted items:

I got an amazing tshirt with a gnome stencilled on it (She saw on my wists that I like gnomes!), a messenger bag made out of a really pretty fabric, it's perfect for spring!, A jewellery set she made, an ipod/phone cozy (that I needed 'cause I recently bought a smartphone and I didn't have anything to protect it in yet) the cozy even has a gnome button!, A keychain she made and you can also see the little bags where the jewellery was in. I can't wait to wear and use it all!

close-ups



A pic of the 'my country doesn't have that' part:

Here you can see the photo she took of a beautiful place in England, I'm sorry but you can't really see it that good, it was hard to take a picture of it. You can also see the English breakfast tea she sent me and a tea strainer for it, she also sent me candy (Sorry, I couldn't wait for the photo to try them so it's already open Smiley) , and some pretty cupcake cases! I'm going to use them this weekend!

A pic of the crafting supplies:

We don't have freezer paper in Belgium so I asked her if she could send that if she found it in England and she did! Now I can stencil my own shirts! I'm so excited to try it! She also sent acetate sheets, they're also for stenciling but I don't really know what to do with them, are they for cutting out stencils? Also in the pic: but you can hardly see it because of the bad lightning are: pretty glass beads, I already had a couple of them but I didn't have enough to make a bracelet out of them but now I can make one! Gnome buttons, I'm not sure what to use them for at the moment but they look so cute! A glass twist, I think I'm going to make a necklace out of this. And really colourfull buttons!
A slightly better pic of the beads and buttons:


Sewenthusiastic thanks so much for the wonderful swap! I love what you sent and I hope you'll like what I sent you too!
If you have a better pic of your photo you can post it here too, so everyone can see it better.

My package from blobfish arrived!! Cheesy
I can't believe what awesome stuff she sent! I got everything I asked for and more Cheesy
I won't keep you waiting any longer!
Here's the loot!

this is me wearing my brand new rhps shirt and bag  Cheesy The shirt is a cross stitch and she did an amazing job on it, the reason why I don't have a pic of the shirt on it's own is because when I saw it I immediatly tried it on and I don't wan't to take it off.
I tried to do the Frankie pose from the bag but apparently it looked better in my head than in real life.

That's a close up of the bag so you can see how great it looks! You can't see it good in the pic but the gold is thread and the red is fabric paint. Frankie is glittery but you can't see that too well on the pic.
This bag will be great to carry my school books in!

This is a pic of a book cover made out of fabric and satin ribbon! The steps from the time warp are in cross stitch!
I think I'm going to use this as a cover for my agenda!

Thank you so much blobfish I adore it ! You were a great partner!
I'll post better pics later but I have to hurry now!

Here are the extra pics! A detailed pic of the cross stitch on the shirt and a pic of the bag

Knot is having a great time! Today we got to see the birth of two lovely kittens, sadly one didn't make it but we're sure that the 2nd one will grow up to be a strong and beautiful kitty!

- Finally some pics of knut  Smiley
Me and my Boyfriend had to make little treats for the kids at his work and guess who was a great help? Knut was so sweet to help us!


Because he had been so nice to us he got a little treat Cheesy
You can see him between all the candy bags, it was hard to stay off of them Wink


Last weekend we went to something that was very familiar for Knut but I won't tell what was yet Cheesy We might visit it again for a souvenir and we don't want the souvenir to be spoiled Wink

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '_____________________________________________________________________')
Estrella got home!
She told me that she had a wonderful time in Sweden, with moawk and that she saw some amazing things!
She brought a lot of lovely goodies with her!

I'll start by showing a pic off the whole package:

You can see the lovely scrapbook , Estrella and her two new friends, Funny shrek ears ( How did you know I like shrek? Cheesy), A recipe for swedish pancakes that I really have to try out!, funny candles of different sorts of fruit, yummie candy, brochures, old advertisements (yay! Cheesy), fossils they found, a handmade keychain and a beautiful drawing that moawk made.

Here's a close up of the drawing:

Sadly the photo doesn't show the details and colours very well

Next: a pic of Estrella with her two new friends, 1st: Estrella 2nd: A gift that moawk got at her graduation, he's wearing a typical swedish graduation hat!, 3th: A doll that moawk made, she's wearing a typical swedish dress, it's beautiful!



A close up of the keychain, fossils, candles and the recipe for the pancakes!

Can't wait to try the recipe out!

Some details of the scrapbook:
It's made very beautiful and it's full of pictures and info about the places they visited and the things they've done. They even had a weird car problem where there was hanging something out of the car that looked like hair, Weird Grin





Thanks you for the exciting swap moawk! I hope Knut will arrive very soon too!

Hi!
I have the feeling that the postal services are very slow this month. I hope the cards I sent will arrive soon.

To make the gallery a little more alive:
Here's the card I received from ShannonRae!

She made this print herself  and if you look real close  you can see the washington capitol building in the background!
Thanks  ShannonRae! I love it!
