My partner received and I couldn't wait to post pics so here we are!

Bird and Girl Bag


Made from a baby blanket and a scarf.  The patch on the flap started life as the hood of the blanket and the handles were originally the binding.  The lining is made out of the scarf.  There is also a zipper to keep things in.  Front view.

Mermaid Notebook


Made from a kid's art apron (with nipples!), a file folder, the board that the blanket was wrapped around and some beads. The paper and embroidery floss I already owned.  The binding was strangely fun.

Baby Hippo Wallet


Made from a baby t-shirt and a potholder. I used some red binding left over from some purses and a CD envelope insert thing for the card pockets.

I recieved my package, but I don't have a camera. I recieved 2 pairs of the coolest earrings - a fork and spoon and asian coins. I also got a flower bookmark, a mood ring (I love these things) and a pendant/ bookmark. I wore the fork and spoon earrings to dinner with my family and my mom said they were "super cute." THANK YOU, Tara1979!

I sent my package to my partner late (I'm such a loser) - she should recieve it by today. *fingers crossed*

Someone being happy about what they recieved in your swap is one of the best compliments a crafter can ever get. I'm glad you liked everything.

Well tomorrow I am off from work so I will have time to finish up RockWaterFalls angel package and hope to get it in the mail tomorrow or at least on my way to work on Friday.
I sure hope she likes what I am sending...My daughter keeps trying to steal one of the goodies  Grin

Prepare to be amazed by (and jealous of) the amazing package I recieved today from Skrabadoo!

A skeleton sock monkey! he's so cute!


a cute little pouch with cherry closure

magnets, lip balm and a lip balm keychain pouch that has a skull charm and a cherry charm

a crochet hook pouch

this is the inside of the hook pouch

and a picture frame, i love picture frames! and I like the photo she put in too.


Shannon, you rock! Thank you so much. I seriously feel like you must hate what I sent you Sad I can't believe you made so much awesome stuff from $10 worth of dollar store finds.
