I'm glad you liked everything! I LOVE everything you sent!.. I will post pics tomorrow. Actually the owl is a combo of wet and needle felted. the pieces were wet felted first, then needle felted together/on, then wet felted to be smooth. I'm kinda impatient, so when one doesn't work I try the other Smiley.

Until then here are some more pictures of what I sent.

Man this thing is tricky to photograph:

Size compared to my hand-shot. The owl is alpaca, with romni wings and face:


It's insides:


And the only one I took of my labels:


Ps. Areo is everywhere in Canada, but no sadly not in the US... it's made by Nestle here.

Alright.. these pics are a bit late, but well worth the wait Shocked

The package looks like it had some rough handling! Oh no.


Luckily everything turned out to be fine inside. Squishy things ship well.

A spread of all the lovely things the talented Mlheran sent me. Clockwise from the top: a beautiful red bag with birds perched on a wire appliques; a beautiful necklace; a chickadee stamp; corduroy coasters; a lovely sparkly bird ornament; some of my favorite treats; and a lovely card.


Coasters! from my wist, but made even better with a lovely bird. Such nice stitching.


Purse! The colours came out a bit strange in this picture, but it's a lovey deep red. It has a sparrow pull too!

It also has a delightful satin lining. Shown here being modeled by the chocolate bars:


The bird happily (and blurry) in it's home. It matches the theme of my tree perfectly! I have all vintage and vintage inspired glass (perfect for having a kitten Smiley, who already tried to eat birdies tail)


And last, but not least, the best use of shrinky dink I think I've ever seen. If you don't touch it, you'd never know! Just wonderful, and also combines my love of poppies.

It also matches one of my favorite Christmas dresses. It's hard to show it's translucent beauty on my camera.

Thank you so much! It's exactly what I wanted!

Love, doyouloveanapple.

hoooraaay! I received my package from kirstilynne today!
This was soooo worht the wait, definitely the best swap package I've gotten, ever.
Kirstilynne, I feel the need to send you more amazing stuff, since you sent so much! anyhow, take a look all::


hand-drawn notecards, I recognize the dodo from my wist =)


Beautiful photo she took herself - seen in her own yard!


Bird necklace and green bracelet (<3 the colors, and the necklace is the perfect length)


Pardon the blurry pic, but I have eyed these little felt birdies on etsy, and now I own a gorgeous pair of earrings made by another crafter; munta


Another bad picture of wonderful stuff; embroidered birds, a notebook, owl pincushion/stuffie, and excellent ribbon wrapped bangle in a lovely bird print box.


these are decorative push pins, birds and other flying creatures =)

There is also a stuffed bird kitty toy with some nip. . . which was happily snatched up before I could capture a photo. they are still batting it around the house. thank you soooo much Kirstilynne!!!

It looks like Maehem has not had a chance to post pics yet so I will go ahead and do it!

I did forget to take a pic of the mini-art card that I made of a peacock (drawn with gold pen on a teal-blue watercolor background)...oops!

A necklace similar to one on her Wist...




A Hummingbird Pouch...




And finally a Bird Silhouette Mobile...
