Yay, I received from giant squid! Thank you Christine! I will get photos once my beautiful stenciled (or silkscreened?) shirt gets out of the wash.
Thanks lisie I'm so glad you like your package.  The shirt is silk screened (well faux silk screened using an embroidery hoop and tulle instead of a screen and modge podge instead of screen filler).  I can't wait to see actions shots of you wearing it.

Hey, everyone!  I received my package from lucydenyes last Friday.  Sorry it took so long for me to post pics.  So, without further ado, the most wondermous (yes, I made that word up lol) birdie goodies my swap buddy sent me!


This is a shot of all the items together.  Sorry it's a little blurry.


Close-up of the card she sent with the package.


Close-up of the bird theme shadow box.


You simply can't go wrong when you have a trio of birdie buttons.


Close-up of the hand embroidery detail.  She did the birds in one of my favorite color combinations on vintage tea towels.


And last, but certainly not least, this amazing birdie tote bag which I have carried everywhere, everyday since I took it out of the package. 

Thank you, Lucydenyes, for being an awesome swap partner.  I got my package in no time at all.  Everything was wrapped beautifully and I love everything you made for me.  And thanks, Lisie, for organizing this awesome swap.  It's been alot of fun. 

And silly me, I forgot to take pics of the stuff I sent out to Lucydenyes.  Maybe she'll be able to post some pics after she receives her package (which is scheduled for delivery today).   Grin

The fabric for that tote bag is amazing!  How perfect for a bird theme!

Everything is just gorgeous!
Here is the great stuff purrpower sent me
An adorable ceramic painting where the bird is sitting on the arm, a fabric sewn T-shirt with a bird, and adorable microscope slide pin and some hair clip goodies and some plastic birdies to craft with. She also sent some cards she already had that I didn't get a pic of, but are great too!

Okay guys! Some of us are sending out late. If you haven't told me when the earliest that you can send it out is, please PM me now!

It's not a crime to send out late, but it is a crime not to inform your organiser and partner!
