Ready for pics of the goodies Catherine_lalala sent me??? Very much fabulousness was found inside the box she sent!!! (warning: pic heavy)

Oh, my themes were:
~ Gnomes / Fairies
~ Forest Stuff (trees, critters, etc.)
~ Pin-Up Girls (preferably clothed since I have a kiddo in the house)
~ Something related to any of the video games listed in my profile (Catherine chose Pokemon)
~ Something related to any of the favorite books listed in my profile (Catherine chose Harry Potter)

A needlebook (yay!) decorated on the front with a most adorable gnome.


Very pretty windchimes with a beaded tree at the top. This is just beautiful and has joined my windchime collection on our front porch. (Yeah, I'm one of those windchime people  Wink.)


Close-up view of the beaded tree.


I absolutely LOVE the way Catherine interpreted the pin-up girl theme. I thought these were incredibly creative. They're collaged, right Catherine? Just stunning.


Wristlet with Vaporeon (a Pokemon) painted on the front. This is beautiful and will be put to much use. My son (the original Pokemon fan in the household) kept commenting on how lucky I was to receive this. I briefly thought about making something similar for him for his birthday (maybe not a wristlet, but something he could carry his DS and games around in) but then I remembered I can't paint worth a darn (doh!!). I may use it for a bit and then offer it to him . . . maybe.


The back of the wristlet. I love the detail of Vaporeon's tail wrapping around to the back of the wristlet.


Four bookmarks, one for each Hogwarts house. Not shown is the back of the bookmarks, where Catherine included the slogan for each house. Love that detail.


Okay, so those were my five themes. Now are pics of the extras Catherine sent  Cheesy.

A knitted pouch with my initial on it. Catherine said she is a beginner knitter, but I thought this was great!


The MOST adorable critter clothespins, which attached notes to each of my wrapped packages. (I better beware, cuz kiddo might abscond with these!).


The pretty card that was the first thing I saw when I opened the box.


I almost missed these origami stars! They were loose in the packing material, but their color caught my eye and I saved them from being thrown out. These are so cool.


I think that's everything  Grin.

Hubby and kiddo were "ooh'ing" and "aah'ing" right along with me as I opened each item. I absolutely, positively, 100% **LOVE** every single thing I received and it will all be put to great use. Hubby looked at me and said, "getting some ideas of things to make, are you?" LOL -- he obviously saw the wheels turning in my head  Wink.

Thank you SO MUCH, Catherine, for everything. This swap was a blast for me -- I enjoyed crafting for you, and I love what you crafted for me. Thanks MaxP for coordinating. This was a super first-swap experience for me  Cheesy.

I'd been waiting to look at the gallery until Kiwi-Chickie got her package to help cut down on the swap anxiety...didn't help... Grin  I am totally blown away by some of the awesome craftiness on display - I especially love the Muppet bracelet and the incredible pirate ship pillowcase, but it looks like everyone really put some elbow grease into their swap packages.
