Wow! That's a lot of stuff!  Grin

Too bad they don't seem to enjoy their "hats" more... Those expressions are priceless!  Wink

LOL! Josey and Buddy are too cute with their "hats" on. That's so great that you got a recipe book. Awesome stuff.

Christ......I hope I made enough. I don't think I did. One thing is small but took me too long to do. Stupid hindsight.

and in response to doo_leroux's comment about size of items - I had NO IDEA how to judge this! I haven't a clue about how what i sent would be classified. i'm assuming its based on time spend and not physical size. but, for example (and this has nothing to do with my package), you make 2 ferret hammocks, one for each of your partner's pets, does that count as one item or two? just curious for future swaps...

It is time spent and not size. Something small may take you 4 hours where something "large" may take 15 minutes.

2. For example, Both myself and dragonslair requested at least one if not 2 hammocks from each other. That's 2 items. Size is dependent on time spent most of the time, and for me it's also the quality. I made a rule for my self I would not send something I was not happy with. So I also rate it that way too. If it's a nice quality item over something that's been sort of "slapped together." then I think it's a larger item.
Some people may be able to produce that sort of item all the time. For me it's more of an effort. Smiley

The hours are a general guideline for size. Since there were so many different animals and sizes/numbers. I really left a lot up to you and your partner.

That's tough call about the hammock thing (or crafts like the hammock). I made 2 of each item for my partner (she has 2 dogs) and I counted them as one item, but that's just me. I think it depends on the organizer and what they are considering items and what you and your partner work out. This swap is a little different because there are so many different animals whereas swaps that are more concrete will have more rigid guidelines about size, hours spent, crafts to make.

Finally, I had my photoshoot with my kitty Cosmo tonight! I had pneumonia and missed the first 2 weeks of my last semester of college, so I was in bed with Cosmo being my nursemaid and doing as much crafting as my codine-laced prescription cough medicine would allow.
taking everything out of the box, Mr. Nosy investigating...

Sooo, here are my amazing swap items from the wonderful Annacharlotte!
I go upstate (I live in NYC) to visit my parents every other month-ish, and Cosmo comes with me, because my parents love him. Annacharlotte made me a bag to carry all his stuff in (and some of mine.)

And it's REVERSIBLE!

A matching pillow that also matches my apartment! Note all the cat hair that takes over anything black.

An exploration tunnel that makes crinkly sounds- makes Cosmo go crazy!

He absolutely REFUSED to go in it when I was taking pictures. He usually only goes in there when no one is looking. He drags it around the apartment, jumps on it, opens it with his nose and paws, goes through once, then drags it to another part of the apt. This is him jumping all over it so it would crinkle.

A NECKLACE! It has a long silver chain, and looks so classy. When you look close, the charms are Cosmo portraits of my kitty on it. I LOVE it! I couldn't take a picture of it without His Highness trying to take it away from me.

CAT TIES!!! So exciting. Since I got a sewing machine, but am so not mechanically inclined, my cat ties came out retarded. Annacharlotte made gorgeous ones! Matching, of course.


His dramatic,  modeling pose:

Three, washable, reusable, refillable bags (matching fabric!) with organic (Annacharlotte and I both like organic things) catnip.




He is under a year old, still a baby although getting huge, so catnip is just starting to affect him. He was sitting on my bed, licking it, then rolling around for a few mins, then coming back for more. Note the catnip all over my bed...

A whimsical shadowbox portrait of the kitty. I LOVE this! If I HAD to pick a favorite item, this would be it.

This shows the dimention of it. You can't see it well in the picture, but there are circles sewn into it with rainbow, metallic thread:

I was going to put it on my wall somewhere, but it looks great on my bookshelf, it's on the upper right corner. Fat Cat can be seen taking one of his many naps on his chair:

Cosmo admiring his goodies:

Don't I look gorgeous in my tie? PS: It's reversible!

All the goodies:

Cosmo and I thank Annacharlotte SO MUCH for all of our beautiful, thoughtful, and wonderfully made swap goodies! She spoiled us!

Love, Jaime and Cosmo
