Oops! I prematurely posted this one! I guess it happens to all Craftsters, sometime... Lol... Now it's fixed!
This is my package from xladyluckx. O. M. G. First of all, she wins for the largest package I've ever gotten from a Craftster swap. The box was huge! I am simply overwhelmed by all of the awesome goodies that she put into my package. Read on...
A *beautiful* log cabin pillow, inspired by one in my wists. Sushi + quilting + throw pillow = LOVE. The fabrics are so great! And the way she put them together was so clever. It's like log cabin, but with her own twist. I adore this pillow.
And check out the brocade fabric she sent! Green...oh, do I love green. And these are big pieces, people! Like a yard each! My mind is overflowing with possibilities for each one. Maybe I"ll have a post sometime soon with smething great made out of these gorgeous fabrics.
What looks like an innocuous toolbox...
...until you open it up, and it transforms into a MICROSCOPE SLIDE PENDANT KIT! Aaaah! I was so excited when I opened it that I kind of did a happy dance. Hope the neightbors weren't watching. It includes: plastic gloves, flux, a flux brush, slides, jump rings, thick and thin copper tape, lead free solder, and a whole ton of different kinds of paper to use in the middle. I love getting crafty kits, and this one takes the cake. Everything is so neatly labeled, and there is everything I could possibly need.
Catpants, you've done it again. What a fantastic swap package!! Check out what she sent me, ladies and gents!
My Domokun stuffy! I absolutely love him. He has a place of reverence, above my sewing table. His goofy grin makes me smile when I'm frustrated with my latest crafty endeavor.
Bonus shot with Tim, one of my three dogs. He's taken quite a shine to Domokun...and not in a rip-your-guts-out, tear-off-your-limbs kind of way. He tries to cuddle with Domo. It's cute.
And a bonus gift! I am now the proud owner of my very own nestlace. The 'eggs' are such a beautiful color. I've gotten a ton of compliments on it already. And check out the Vote for Carl campaign sticker! Ha ha ha...
I'd list the contents, but it would take up a whole page! Suffice it to say that I have *more* than enough paper, doo dads, stickers, and ephemera to seriously start scrapbooking. And the colors are so perfect! The best part is the 'how to' packet. It has instructions for brown paper bag albums, which I've been wanting to try forever.
Six beautiful kanzashi hair clips, and eight thank-you cards from my wists that I absolutely adore. I just can't gush enough! What a great first package! And my FOCer added the funniest 'ransom' note...saying that if I didn't like my gifts, I would have to put a million dollars in the fountain by the library!! Good thing I *love* them!
Squee! look what I got from bhean! BLYTHE CLOTHES!
Check it out: yellow pj pants, a white tank with cherries, a mini mug, an umbrella, sexy gold pants, a pleated skirt, a black t with sequins, an adorable green dress, and a knitted hat!
And would you believe she's never made Blythe clothes before? I sure don't. They're amazing quality, and they all fit so well.
Thank you, bhean!
*edited to add* I can't believe I forgot the best part: see my Blythe's feet? Those are the world's tiniest bunny slippers! With little teeny bunny faces. Their construction is beyond my comprehension. :-D
