Received! 

First off, this was my first swap through Craftster and H_Pets360 really delivered; I couldn't have asked for a better partner.  Onwards!


O hai, recycled packaging.


Bags!  The painted one was rescued from a Goodwill bin, the other was crocheted using gardening string, free pile cotton thread and stash yarn.  The latter has already undergone a test drive at the farmers market; we are pleased to report that it is a superior radish holder.


As described:  "The yarn should be about a sweater's worth, as it WAS a sweater.  A horribly patterned UGLY sweater, but a sweather nonetheless."  My yarn addiction is pleased.


Lovely buttoned cuffs, also the result of a sweater deconstruction.  Currently tied with the above crocheted bag for "Most Favorite".


Art, courtesy of a wooden block found at a construction site.  The telephone poles are pieces from a toaster that H_Pets dismantled.  Clever, yes?


Mmm.  Reading material.

In sum:  Yay!  Thanks again, Stephanie!

Ok, Sera Unraveled received the package I sent her.  Unfortunately, her camera is misbehaving, so I will post pics for her.

First, a pair of scrabble earrings in her initials, in a very small box made from a greeting card.




Next, a keychain from a wine cork and a tassel from an old comforter.




And a necklace made from scrabble cubes.




Also, a wearable leather pouch, made from an old jacket.




Then, there's a fan I made from an old record album.  She likes Neil Diamond.





And, the last item, a woodburned panel for her wall.  It's a stylized drawing of the Reduce/Reuse/Recycle symbol.




Glad you liked everything Sara.  I can't wait to receive my package.

I didn't realize you made the box....

I love my new fan.  I showed it to my fiance, I had to wake him up and the first thing that he saw was Neil Diamond staring back at him.  I think he got a little creeped out. Cheesy  After looking at it more carefully I noticed that I have the same album.  Although the picture on my CD cover is different that the one on the record sleeve.


I love everything, thanks again Phyllis

That fan made me giggle.  I have a bunch of crap records and record covers that I've been trying to decide what to do with.  So many possibilities!  And now I have one more, thanks Pinkokeeo!

(eeee! pre-edited to add that I didn't mean that Neil Diamond was crap!   Embarrassed  I meant the records I have that are in my craft supply are crap - badly scratched, or one of the millions of abandoned christmas albums, etc).
