Beautiful color on that neck warmer!  Love the pink tote bag!  Wish I could find some fabric like that...

I have been watching all the packages with interest but don't think I have really commented.  So here they are all in one post!

mandylikespie- Love the owl banner.  Really like the pink and chocolate brown combo that is so popular.  My craft room in in those colors...

Iheartcapnhook- Awesome package!  So having swap anxiety after this huge package.  Another great owl banner, such a great combo of colors and different fabric patterns.  And a quilted wall hanging too...

faemystique- Nice emroidery on that tote, matches the lining nicely.  And that owl hat is to die for!

Fosca- Cute owl family!  I think the large stuffy one is my favorite.  You choose several different styles of owls which I think was cool.  And love that handmade book!

Iheartreescry- I am in awe of your knitting/crochet skills.  My favorite is the little green crochet owl.

Miss Motleycruiser- Nice mini stuffed owls, love them!  Also really like the book pouch.

sundayafternoonhousewife- Cool owl buttons,  I don't wear jewelry myself, but those earrings and pendant may convert me!  And nice hat.

Half Pint- Awesome, awesome, AWESOME TOTE!  Did I mention the crochet tote was awesome?  Loving the hand carved owl stamps, you are so talented.

flowers and lemons & Thunderchild, I already sang your praises, but they bear repeating.  Great pink tote with tissue holder, and loving the neckwarmer, you also have some great drawing skills.

Ok, by this point, can we say Huge, MAJOR swap anxiety!

I'm so happy you got my package and that you are happy with it!
I made some close-ups of the scarf-thing, because I liked the colours so much. I'm going to post the pictures on my flickr account, if you'd like to see..

But won't bother you with that. And you've allready used the owl-pouch and phone-bead. Yay!!  Cheesy

*edit; McLiane, thank you   Grin I actually want to study Illustration, so I'm really happy with that compliment..*

Yay! I received my package!
I'm really happy with what Saskia made me. So.. What was in it??  Cheesy
A box, with on the outside a hand-painted owl, the inside is painted in gold; a series of origami owls to put on presents and things like that; a bag; earrings and a phone bead.

Picture of everything together;
I really love the box with the owl painted on it. I had to use a flash, in real life the box looks even better!

Picture of the box and the bag (the fabric is cute, I like the picture on the left the most);

Bag opened;

Close up on the phone bead and earrings;

Another picture with the origami owls on it.

Thank you very very much, Saskia! I love it! I think I like the box and the phone bead the most.. And the bag.. (I can't decide what I like best, thank you!  Grin)

Lovin the origami owlies! I tried to make some and found it REALLY hard.  These look much cuter than the ones I was trying to make.  Can you tell us where you got the instructions Saskia?
