I got my package a couple of days ago!  I've had to help my boyfriend pack up and move his stuff out of his apartment though.  He's got basic soon so he doesn't want to pay for the rent while he's not there.  He's going to move to a different complex when he's gotten back.  He's storing his stuff at my place for now so it's a bit of a mess right now!   Cheesy  Anyway, that's why I haven't put the pictures up yet, but Pirate Kisses and I were partners.  We both have boyfriends in the army right now and wanted to make stuff for each other while our boyfriends were away.  She did such an amazing job! 

Here's everything together:


She made me a beautiful purse:

This is probably my favorite item.

In this picture underneath she made me a BDU pincushion for my pins and sewing needles, a red neck pillow, and she hand stitched a water bottle carrier for me out of hemp for long walks:



She also bought me a gorgeous leather journal and wrote "Army Girl" on the inside:


The journal is pretty awesome.  I really like that these are all items I can use.  The neck pillow is comfortable!  Also, everyone's stuff turned out so wonderfully.  Everyone here is so talented!

question: how do you gals deal with the depression that sets in while your men are away? I have been that way for a couple of days and I am trying to "shake off the funk"

I would have to admit that sometimes I'll just hole myself up in my apt. for a day with several movies & my fave junk food. Not the best thing to do, but w/e. I really don't go out much anymore (funny that I just turned 21 too..) with friends, but I do go to my parents' house & out shopping with Mom too. That helps.
Also, I have 2 cats that have really become companions- they brighten my day with their goofy antics & personalities. <- as lame as that may sound  Grin

I love that journal, PirateKisses!  Is the cover leather?  I've been watching this swap to see what goodies you guys are coming up with.  I wanted to join in, but I was having a mental block during sign-ups and had no clue as to what kind of things to craft  Tongue 

My man is in the Navy, so we have long separations sometimes.  Plus we seem to move to a new duty station almost every year.  To get over the blues, I dive deeply into therapeutic crafting.  I have learned to knit, inkle weave, bookbind, and make jewelry (to name a few) in the seven years or so since he joined up.  I'm not really a social butterfly, but with all the moving to areas where we did not know a soul, I joined a group just to get out and meet people in the new area.  I picked the Society for Creative Anachronism because they are so crafty  Grin  Plus, they have groups all over the world, so wherever we get transferred, I will have contacts.

Nothing is a good as having him home, but camping in costume takes my mind off of missing him so much!
