Here is the fantastic package I recieved from dragonslair:

First, some giant bibs for Turing.  I hate how all the bibs are like 3 inches big and I need some that are 10 inches big.  These are perfect (and I hear Duncan helped !)



I had read you wanted larger bibs, I swore by the full body towel bibs Kate had as a baby, guess I'll have to make some for Deven.  I'm glad you liked the book.  The scarf I found those kits at JoAnn's normally 7.99 I found them marked down to 1.00 a piece I bought 20.  They make great stocking stuffers.

Here are some action shots of the awesome things zenochka sent for my kids!
Stephen in his Blue's clues shirt (worn to preschool once, on a snow day once and to sleep once...all in one week!):

Blue's Clue's Hoodie (worn pretty much everywhere everyday):

and here's my girl Bridget in her Strawberry Shortcake shirt playing with her "no man", giving her some "loves":


Both my kids have inherited this thing from my mom that causes them to close their eyes or look away for 99% of all photos. It drives me nuts; I almost never get a picture of them looking AT the camera with their eyes open.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for swapping with me, Cheryl! Let me know when your stuff arrives! I hope your kiddos like it. USPS.com keeps telling me it has been acceppted at my local post office...well, duh, I KNOW I took it there. DC only works if they bother to update it, I guess! Great swap! Grin I love seeing what everyone has come up with.

EDITED TO ADD: I didn't get pics of the blankets because we use them in the car. They're the perfect size! They keep little hands oasty while we're driving to school/wherever. The kids love them!

I'm glad you like it all! I knew nothing about Avatar, so I had to do a little research. Hope I put the right things on the shirt.  Smiley My friend's son is also named Kaden and ALSO very much into Thomas and he told me he wants "a bag for my choo-choos" from Santa, so I guess I'm making another one.

Zelda sent me some extra fabric so here's some shirts I made with it!  I'm going to hide these now for "Christmas Eve" PJ set's.  If I have enough time before Christmas I may make them both a stuffed animal with them too!



Thanks again!

Well our package of goodies arrived today and it was well worth the wait and then some. I will take pictures tomorrow as both my kids were worn out tonight and to ownery for pictures. Jordan received an amazing purse with her initial on it. A journal, a necklace with her name on it and a wristlet that's just her size. Jake received a bag with a fire truck on it, a small fire truck, stickers and the most incredible stuffie ever. The items were so well made and what made this package even more incredible is that everything was tailored to my children. Madmatigan, I can't thank you enough for really making an effort to create things specifically with my children in mind. You set the high bar Smiley

much love-

Yay! I'm so happy that the package finally arrived and that the kids like everything. I had a great time crafting for them. Smiley Can't wait to see some action shots!

Here is a picture of the stuffy I made for Jake. His name is Gurff:



I have pictures of everything else, but I they came out kind of dark, so I will have to play with them in photoshop.
