Tristita received my final card and asked if I could post a picture. She wanted a weird, vintage children card so here is "my pet maggot". the background is fabric and lace I received from Teeisme in the ephemera swap:)

Here's the awesome stuff I received from Ondrayuh!

Handmade cat toys including a jumbo crocheted mousie:) She also sent some delicious candy that's already been eaten:) As you can see from the pics she used some good catnip in her cat toys as my cat went BONKERS as soon as I opened the box:)
Thanks Andrea!

I received the best package from my partner Jaybirdiscrafty!

First a pic of the open box. When I opened the flap I immediately started tearing up over the enclosed Birthday gift for my son Colin. I knew immediately that Jennie had read my myspace blog about how no one showed up for Colins party and it really touched me that she had sent a gift for him:)

Next I was completely overwhelmed by the crocheted goodness flowing from the box! Jennie is an uber talented crocheter and she sent me a plethora of wonderful items that are so colorful AND soft!

my fav-an amigurimi dog! And a lil moses basket thingie that is made from chenille yarn. Colin immediately grabbed her and named her Peach. He could not get over the fact that someone actally made her:)

next 3 beautiful potholders:

next a very complex table doily thing-very 3 dimensional!

a CUTE felt pincushion with a wooden rose in the center:

I love this-a skinny scarf! I wear it all the time:

blue jean blue SHAWL! Super soft and on my wist!:

and another shawl! ADORE this-love the gold flecky yarn!:

and Colin after he opened his gift-a new bionicle! He was thrilled! Miraculously it was a set he didn't already have-he built it immediately, of course-Colin says Thank You:

Thank you Jennie-I love everything!

You are very welcome Jennie! You have been a great partner:) Jennie said her pics came out a bit small so here are a few of the items I sent that I took pictures of:

Button Betty the sock monkey-she's made from knee socks so she actually huge:) So use knee socks if you want a giant monkey Cheesy

vintage button necklace-Jennie likes coffee (as do I) so I went for coffee colored buttons:

a leather and vintage button cuff on my skanky mat board  Smiley:

my 1st reconned tee-Jennie loves skull so I stamped skull then slashed a heart in the middle. I also cut off the neck rib and the cuff? area for a more thrashed look  Wink. I'd love to see it on you Jennie:)

I made her an ATC DIY kit and sent with it her 1st ATC-gotta love cherries:)

you've been a great partner jaybirdiscrafty!

Since I sent way too early  Wink Teeisme was able to get the stuff I sent then sent her ephemera and both her cards to me:) I received my lovely goodies yesterday and was so inspired that I sat right down, made her return card and mailed it to her:).

Here's my stuff:

fantastic fabric, fibers and LACE:

napkins, scrapbooking stuff, stickers and vintage buttons/doodads:

tons of papers including embossed, textured and vellum which I desperately needed-YAY!

and the delightful cards-the geisha card is her supply card and the coin card is my supply I sent card:LOVELY

Thank you Tee!!!!

Here's the stuff I sent Miljamie:)

All the stuff again in said crappy chair:

"wisdom words" coffee candle and stones-atop book cover that was a semi failed attempt after two failed attempts:(:

tag book for Jamie to journal about the books she loves this year-and a booby blinged bookmark:

close up on the book bag-I used this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60872.0

this is a great tutorial-I made it a bit bigger for books-I will definately be using that pattern again-thanks dyabolica:)

game piece frame:

stamped manniquin bookmarks, old sci fi cheesy bookmarks and magnets, grape/wine hand towel, felt broaches, and kawaii stickers. Other stuff not pictured-8 chick lit books, some vintage buttons and velcro for her use.

This was a really fun swap!
