 Wink The funny thing about the poster is my hubby's first name is Rob and his nickname is Zombie (obviously because of Rob Zombie!! - but he looks nothing like him  Tongue) I didn't realize that's where I put the magnets till I was resizing in Photoshop.... Grin BTW - I hate that pic of me. That's what I get for letting the hubby take stupid pics of me playin' around Tongue  I have muppets on my neck and the Virgin Mary in my ears right now.....

I've already said I'd be late.  Roll Eyes I'm not usually, although I'm never early.
I always stretch myself when making stuff for swaps. This time I was on target and decided that my large item needed accessorised, so that's what I'm doing and it's not even on the list of items  Shocked
I'll post some teasers later to wet Jilleville's lips.

Well may I start off by saying a big thankyou to our lovely organiser, because I have just had the perfect craftster swap experience! Me and my partner are both really happy!!
Now i dont usually have nightmares, but last night i was having some seriously weird dreams. So, as you can imagine, I was delighted to be woken up to the sound of my dog woofing and my mom screaming "SWAP FOR POPPY! SWAP FOR POPPY!!"
When i'd tore through all the layers of brown wrapping, I was so excited! Its like becs KNOWS me- scary! Everything is so fabulous!!! I honestly cant even pick a favourite. I love it all.

Themes- burlesque, flapper, kawaii, andy warhol, sailor jerry

Right, onto the stuff!- you'll have to excuse me for doing scans rather than photos!



I absolutely ADORE this hairpiece. I was actually secretly hoping I'd get something with peacock feathers in it- and this is perfect! It looks really great in my blonde hair. The little artwork piece is adorable. It'll be a great addition to my bedroom wall!

Action shot!



Then came this wonderful jewellery. I'm in awe of the resin stuff. Its so clever! I'm wearing the domino cuff and monroe necklace today. Already had 4 compliments and its only 10 to 10!



Becs said she bought these in a vintage shop because she fell in love but they just didnt fit. Welcome to my life! Well the good news is they fit my tiny hands..well... like a glove! Cheesy I love the button detail on them, so unusual.


My biggest item is a wonderful dice print pillow with a swallow and my name embroidered into it. But when I tried to scan, my scanner made the scariest noise I have perhaps ever heard. It is absolutely gorgeous, and apparently Becky's first every embroidery. Damn, you got some SKILLZ! i also got sume cute extras- 80's looking kawaii hair clips and some beads. I love it all!

*EDIT* Here is a reasonable scan of the detailing on the case sans pillow. I love that it's personalised!


(Becky, if you have a picture of the pillow-please send so I can put it here and show everyone the wonder!!)

Thankyou!!!! (sorry, i talk too much Cheesy)

Alright, mostly I just love that you scanned your arm.  That's beautiful.  But seriously, everything is gorgeous!  The fascinator is wonderful!
