I'm almost embarrassed to admit how much I covet your Diamond fan.

My love of the wall plaque is less embarrassing.  Nice!

The package, opened by my overeager partner-in-life before I could get my camera out.  That card is adorable.



The bangles are really cute.  I haven't advanced my knitting skills up to cable level.  I'm impressed.  But my wrists are just a smidge too big.  I'm gonna have to come up with another use for them or give 'em to my skinny cousin.   Tongue  They're made with recycled yarn, a hoop that was part of a macrame planter, and a plastic bangle.



I'm going to untangle these, then use 'em to mark important sections in my copy of Carrots Love Tomatoes.  They're bookmarks Subpolka made with her "epic stash of beads and buttons" and some string.  (I had some similar buttons that I sent a different swap partner and I was kind of missing them.  Thanks!) 



This is a sweet planter made from a CD case, wine corks, slides, and a tie.  I stuck one of my plants that definitely needs a more attractive container in it already. 





and plant markers made out of soda cans and wire clothes hangers!  I needed more of these.  Subliminalpolka wrote "because function isn't necessarily pretty," but I love 'em.  And I think the little flashy bits might keep the a@#$%@# birds away from my baby bean plants!  Here they are shown with my beloved aloe.



My favorite:



Guess what it is!

A utensil roll!  I always forget to pack this stuff when I take my lunch to work!   Comes complete with reusable napkin.  Woooot!



Thank you, subliminalpolka!

I donno why two of those pictures are weird (one's on it's side, the other is oddly stretched).  I fixxed 'em in photobucket, but it's not showing up.

Dag.  Sorry to hear that the bracelets don't fit; there were kind of tight on me, as well, but I just attributed that to having freakishly wide hands.  Smiley

Otherwise, so glad that you liked everything!

I got my package from Bigmouth, and I'm in awe!  I love everything so much, thank you a ton Bigmouth. 
And now it's photo time so I can show it off!


This is an oven mitt made from a shrunken old sweater and some bits of yarn and cotton thread from another swap.  It's perfect because I lost my last oven mitt while I was moving!!



A cool little pouch made out of fused plastic target bags and some thrifted/saved rickrack and buttons.  It's going right in my huge purse to hold my essentials in a place I can actually find them.



A stack of really beautiful handmade paper (in green and purple Cheesy).  The best part is, they're made out of anti-abortion pamphlets--I had told Bigmouth that I was a feminist and she worked it into the crafts in such fun ways!


Some awesome handmade notecards.  They're handmade paper and the embellishments are all kinds of fun  stuff from thrifted books (and some ribbon).  The envelopes are all made out of a whole foods paper bag--each envelope has it's own little personality, too!


This is my favorite one of the notecards from above.  It has the definitions for "right" and "radical" on it, along with a cool funky solar system illustration.  I'm going to make sure I save this one for a worthy recipient!

Again, thank you so much, Bigmouth.  I love everything!

Oh, I'm so glad you like it, Martine!  I thought the definition of "radical" was absolutely a hoot.  It was from an encyclopedic dictionary (the kind that comes in multiple volumes--I picked up a single volume at a thrift store once), and I think it was from the early 60s.  I think it says more about the time when it was written than it does about the actual meaning of "radical."  I thought it would be funny to stick an even older idea of an earth-centered universe on there with it. Wink

OH.  And my package from Martine came on Friday, everybody.  I've been out all weekend (found a house! woot!), but I'll try to take photos today.  Get ready for awesomeness in the gallery!

^Yeah, when I read "unAmerican or unsound means of improving the social order" I lol'ed.  I'm thinking of a friend who would also get a kick out of it, hehe!
