Yay!  I received my box from isshanorange.  Her name is Olga and I love her! Her body is from a grandma turtleneck, her dress from a 70's curtain, the heart appliques are from a tie, her hair is wiring from an electrical something, eyes and nose from a stuffed potato and her necklace is a piece of jewelry.
Thanks Tina, you are not that evil of a swap partner!

I received an awesome purse with a cute pink toy cell phone from Baglady.  The lining of the bag is made from the vintage curtains, the outside is a pale liliac colored button-up shirt, the strap is a tie and there's the cutest bow pin made from electric wiring/cord.  I love it so much and will post pics if/when i get a chance!!!!

So here is my new friend that alisonwonderland sent me.  She is so cute!





She will be my mascot in my new sewwing room.  Craftster is so inspiring, so I think that she will help.
