I received an awesome package from wootwoot! She painted a mirror with Matrioshka dolls using the perfect colors for my office (I'll show you later when I have it picked up a bit Tongue). She also made a little pin.

Here's the mirror. The little Matrioshka doll pin is on a piece of paper wedged into the middle.


And here's a close-up of her amazing painting job. Cheesy


Thanks so much, wootwoot!! I love it all.

I'm glad you like it, novastarlet!  I haven't painted anything in forever, so this was fun.  I might have to do more of those little mirrors (from Ikea, of course Smiley )

I received a great package from suzukibeane, and will posts pics soon (my batteries are never charged when I need them Undecided )

I received from a_heart_apart! She sent me five Matrioshka cards, a set of nesting boxes (the innermost is a block), a necklace and ear rings! The stylized Matrioshka on Japanese paper look fabulous!




Thanks again!  This has been a fun swap! Grin

I have photos of the cards I made you, which I can post if you'd like, but forgot to photograph the dolls.  Undecided

(wootwoot's painted Matrioshki are adorable. Smiley)

Here's what I got from suzukibeane33!  I mentioned that I preferred more traditional looking matrioshka as opposed to the cute ones (though I like them both) and just look at the beautiful fabric she used on this pouch she made for me:



Inside (because it was nested, of course Smiley ) was this pretty altoid tin (to add to my tin collection)



And inside that was this great magnet:



Thanks so much, suzukibeane!  I love it!

That fabric is great, suzukibeane33. I'd love to see a wide shot of the pouch. Smiley

I should have thought of nesting things like that. Geesh, it seems so obvious now. Tongue

I'm glad you like everything WootWoot!  My friends sometimes wonder why I spend so much time making things for complete strangers, but then when I received my package from novastarlet, they completely understood how nice it is to give and receive a beautiful handmade gift to someone who will really appreciate it!

Everything I received looks super-professional- I have no idea how you get such perfect stitches on your appliques!  I also happened to really be wanting some pouches for tampons, makeup, my bike repair kit... and now I have two!  Anyway, without further ado- the pics!:

Me and my matrioshka grinning ear to ear after receiving the pillow:


I'm already using this pouch and still am in awe of all the detailing (unfortunately it's a little hard to see because of the flash, but I hope you can still see the beads, the little eyes, the embroidered hair :



Second pouch opened to show the lining (can you tell the fabric is covered in matrioshkas?):


And finally, the money shot with all my goodies set out on my craft table:


Sorry for the absurdly long post, but I just wanted to give credit where credit is due, and to show my excitement!  Thanks again novastarlet!
