fizzle7033 has received from me...here's what I crafted for her.

She said that she really wanted stationary and I made a dozen pieces especially highlighting her home city of Frankfort, KY. Also included one for her to write a love letter to her special someone:

Next is a pencil topper with her name in beads:


I made a wristlet and used a button machine for an accent:


And she also mentioned stuffies - plus her wist showed a fondness for owls. I really like how this primitive turned out:

Yay I got my package from Octopusincclothing! Thank you soo sooooo soooooooo much Dawn, it is all so amazing! I hope your package shows up soon so you can (hopefully) be as happy as I am right now! WEEEE!

Righty-o, so pictures!

I didn't get a good picture of the box, which was decorated, but this is the note that was on top:




And here is everything that was inside:






An awesome pink t-shirt, with the cutest embroidery. So impressed!







A trash bin, which is the perfect size to keep by the coffee table in my living room, which is where I do most of my crafting! It has my name on the side, etched(?) in the plastic.




An awesome hippo box. I am in love with the sparkly hippo! I am going to fill it with sequins, I think.




A set of plastic take-out boxes for buttons, scraps, and misc, that also have my name kinda etched into the plastic. I have no idea how it was done, but it looks cool! And no I have no excuse not to tidy up the mess in my craft room. So I don't end up posting three thousand pictures, here's just one:




And there was also a fairy notepad:




Fairy stained glass booklet:





And the cutest little hippo bath poof guy:




And last but not least (ok, well maybe...) the packing peanuts were PINK!!!!!!! That rocks!




Again, thank you so so much Dawn, this was such an awesome swap. I hope you like your package as much as I like the one I got!!! (And I hope it gets there soon so I can stop worrying!)

YAY! I got my package from Daneisha last night!!!

It included a beautiful tote bag, an adorable monogrammed scarf, a lovely monogrammed note pad, some fun fridgey magnets with my letters, a keychain/bookmark type thing that I WILL find a use for, and some pretty glass pendants that will definitely come in handy. She also included descriptive notes for each item, which was helpful.

Everything together:


The tote bag (way retro and fun, the girls I party with will be so jealous):


The pendants (beacuse I make jewelry):


The magnets and name strip (how did you guess that I love fridgey magnets?):


The note pad (much too pretty for mundane notes, will save for gift tags or love notes):


And the scarf, modeled by my Valuable Assistant Westley (It does get cold in Indy in the winter, though it's like a million degrees out now- but the scarf will keep, it will look cute with my brown blazer!):



Thank you so much, Daneisha. I LOVE EVERYTHING!!!
