Here are my goodies! This was a fun swap.

Box and large yellow rose


Frame


Bag and photo album


Just look at the cool fabric! I can NEVER find yellow roses in the fabric store that don't look cheesy.


Thanks for being my partner crazyqt13. Hope you liked your gifts.

That fabric was on the rack, having just came out of the stock room when I went shopping for this swap... it was destiny =D

Now my sweet stuff:

A tshirt that's a tad too big, but I'll fit it down cuz I love the pattern of the letters:



A jewelry box with a quatrefoil cut out on the top:



A Phi Mu charm:


Some pre-cut letters, ready to be ironed on:


Candles:


A-- Well, I'm fairly certain its to hold a plant or something like that, but I used a pumpkin for display purposes:

More fabric letter patches! I'm jealous! They're so expensive to order online and no craft stores in my area have them in greek letters.

Everything looks great so far! I'm sending tomorrow!

Fabric letters are so easy! And you're right they're sooo much less expensive than you can find them online, plus you can make them out of whatever fabric/shirt combo you want! This stuff is all sooo cute. Can't wait to see what I get!  Grin

I received from Handbaghannah83. The up close picture of the two boards was bigger than 2mb so I couldn't upload it. They didn't handle shipping very well so I'll have to try and fix them.

All together:


Paper:


Clip, box, stickers, altoid tin, picture frame:


Lap blanket:


Thank you! I really like the lap blanket, it's starting to get cold here.

Handbaghannah83 received on Tuesday but hasn't posted pics of what I sent her. So here it is:

All together:


T-Shirt with "liquid embroidery":


Painted picture frame with perler bead design added:


A plaque with raised glossy glitter letters (this took about 3 days worth of layering):


She loves flip flops so I got the black ones to accent with gold glitter glue:


The box to keep her pin/pin guard/achievement bracelet in:


Open:


A necklace with six charms on it so she can wear whatever charm she wants (top/left is a cupcake):


Misc. goodies, 2 skull with hearts iron ons, 2 heart magnets, 1 "J" magnet, 1 skull magnet, 2 perler bead items for her to use in scrapbooking:



Our official colors are Black and Gold but her favorites are Black and Pink so I tried to make the whole package fit her perfectly. And, she loves hearts and skulls.

Here we go! I finally got a chance to sit down and take pictures to put up here of all of the awesome stuff JustCheeky sent me!

She sent me this adorable picture frame! I love the colors and the painting on it!!


I also got a REALLY nice tote bag! It's the perfect size for my laptop and some of my books! I actually had to take stuff out of it to take this picture because I couldn't wait to use it!


And then she sent me this really really cute little bag with a lion sewn onto it!! You picked AMAZING colors and fabric. Right up my alley.


She also sent me a really cute little vinyl lion to put on something...I think it might go onto one of my officer manuals for the moment!


Thank you sooooo much for everything JustCheeky! I love it all!  Grin

Sorry for taking so long to post!  Here are my FABULOUS items from hgolightly09:


All of the items together. MY FAVORITE is the fleece owl pillowcase - I am in LOVE with this owl fleece - where is it from?!


Two owls - one she recreated from my wist as a stuffie and the other is a tree ornament - which is such a great idea!


A felt frame in Chi Omega colors, two paper owl cards and this so neat framed art of a tree made from our letters - what a great idea!

Thank you so much hgolightly09!  You were a fabulous partner!!
