USPS says my partner received today but it must have been after she was on here last. She hasn't said anything yet. That makes me nervous.... like she has to come up with a bunch of lies to say she liked it. Swap anxiety just never goes away!!

im so sorry! i didnt mean to give u anxiety. truth is, i opened it as soon as it was delivered, screeched with joy and took tons of pictures, uploaded them, and then got a call that my grandfather was rushed to the hospital. so i had to bolt out the door Undecided sorry love! im gonna do another post about it all right now!!!

well. im going to post some pictures of what I had sent along to perriell (I can't spell... i could have gone back to make sure i spelled it right but im sure everyone gets the idea! haha.)

anyhoo here goes.
I was crafting for her godson Xander. I have not crafted for a child before (other than struggling with a quilt for my future brother in law's new baby) so here is what i came up with:

my medium (well large really) item was this train coat hanger. This is not the same one but the same colors and everything becuase before i wrapped it up and sent it off i forgot to photograph it. my dad and i made this so i did cheat a bit, but i painted it and personalized it and helped cut and glue.



this one is a bit hard to see becuase foolishly i also didnt take pictures before i repackaged it. I decoupaged a billion sheets of tissue paper that i cut into squares and strips and glued them to a piggy bank. then did the little fellas name on the side.



same idea with a frame that i later put the meaning of Xander in.


a photo album for the little guys mom.


a pillow.



and a tag blanket



I also included some things for my partner, she was so nice to get the stuff made for her godson I just had to throw in a bunch of stuff. a chocolate bar shaped like a P. A ring with a P on it. a little pearl colored box with her name on it. a pearl adorned P. some P post it notes. and some small P note cards.

Glad she enjoyed it.

Kristen~ I'm so glad you liked everything!!! The shrinky dinks weren't supposed to come out like that but I threw them in your package anyway thinking maybe you could use them for something. It was my first time using that stuff. My favorite thing to make was actually your "lucky penny" necklace. I spent over an hour cleaning that one penny so it was shiny and it took me forever to find one with "1987" on it. Did you notice? Was I right? (birth year) I was sooooo disappointed when, days later, I pop it out of the mold and there lies a giant air bubble! I decided to send it to you anyway, because I figured you could tell people that Abe Lincoln was blowing a bubble to you! (it lines up with his mouth perfectly)

That last picture..... uh.. yeah... I meant to send that.... sure...  Grin

I love the shamrocks and penny resin pieces.  It is really great to see all the different things that everyone has come up with in this name swap.  I am glad I was a participant.  I am waiting for my package from Scotland with much excitement!
