i saw this post by gatheredthreads
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=214773.0
and i totally loved it.

she was kind enough to print this owl image and send it to me
this one has my beginning stitches on it, and the border too.

i finished it like this, it went to sundayafternoonhousewife in the owl swap.


she didn't want anything in return, can you believe her? so generous. but i wheedled it out of her that her mister likes zombies, she said he liked zombie bunnies actually. who knew there even was such a thing?
here's what i came up with for them... see the guts? eww.

the face is my favourite part, i've never really worked with polymer clay much before, it's fun!


isn't he just horrid?

wow two lovely designs on the bag  Grin were they printed or done freehand? the owl embroidery is clever and that zombie bunny is amazing Cheesy - I didn't know there was such a thing as a zombie bunny!!

The talents of members of craftster never cease to amaze me... talking of which here's the wonderful parcel of crafty goodness that I received this morning from AlwaysInspired



I'd seen one of AlwaysInspired's bracelets on here and she kindly agreed to do a personal swap, here's a closer pic of the gorgeous charm bracelet with dragonflies and birds 


Also a lovely necklace and extra surprises, -more lampwork charms, a butterfly, purple bumpy bead and the cutest little penguin with a tiny weeny little fish  Grin


We'd agreed to include some local info in our packages, this is such a good idea, it's great to get a little insight into where swap partners live  Smiley When Alwaysinspired sent my parcel the temp there was forcast as highs of -15 to -20 degrees c  Shocked  she included some pics of the snow and a lovely arty shot

Thanks for a great personal swap AlwaysInspired Grin

I received these gorgeous earrings from LindsayLuu yesterday.  They are absolutely perfect for me!  I wear stud earrings nearly every day, and I'm always looking for something a bit more interesting than basic gemstones.  Thank you, Lindsay!

Thanks Ruby_soho! 

Alli, where's the action shot?  I considered photographing the sachets in my underwear drawer, but I thought that would be a bit much Smiley

Haha, I love the idea of an action shot of your underwear drawer.  Hilarious!  I'll try to get a shot of the earrings on me tomorrow.  I am so lucky to have them!
