Lol... don't you just love electronics?  I got a new camera for mother's day last year, one of those pink "girly" ones (picked that color out only because I knew hubby wouldn't want to carry around a pink camera! lol) but the darn thing seems to eat batteries!  Seems like I get 10 pictures taken and then the darn batteries are dead!  I did keep my old camera, I like some of the features better on the old one than the new one...but anyway...

oh, Stitch!  have you tried energizer lithium batteries?  Normally, I'm a duracel girl but when it comes to digital cameras energizer lithium is the way to go.  They last sooooo long.  They are more expensive but in the long run save you money because you're not running out buying new batteries every week. Literally, I haven't bought any batteries in like 6 months.  I might not use my camera as often as say, a mom, but I do use it quite a bit.

Everything looks so amazing so far, good job ladies on stuffing those boxes.

Only a few people left to post pictures, please do that soon. If you cannot post pictures, please pm your partner so they can put pictures up for you. We want everyone to get praise for their hard work. You will only get feedback when pictures are up.

Everyone else should have feedback, let me know if you do not.

I use the rechargeable batteries so you buy them once and they last for years. After a little while they don't last as long in the camera but it is not like you are throwing them away when they die.

Ditto, I have a ton of energizer rechargeables in AA and AAA for cameras, mp3 players and such...DH and I are gadget-happy Smiley

My partner, Crafty McCrafterson, hasn't be able to post photos of her package yet. So I'm posting some photos of what I sent.

A needle book, woven lanyard key chain and 2 purse sets(check book cover and card holder), a post-it holder. Strawberry theme was pulled from her wists.

Double sided apron in Christmas treat themes.

Set of napkins, potholders, 2 sets of coasters and some fav recipe cards to go with the apron.

Set of glow in the dark fabric curlers, elf and candy cane ornaments, water bottle tote and embroidered towel. Tote and towel were family gifts. --Sorry for the messy sewing table in the background Tongue

Da Vinci Code book safe and door sign for her younger brother.

"Stuff it yourself" pillow for her younger sister who wants to be a vet.

Aw nuts! I came on last night to post and it did that 503 error thing... oh well, I saved my post so here it is!

More pictures!

Ok, no more battery talk Smiley Prepare

to be amazed and JEALOUS of me! *tee

hee*

First I'd like to appologize for my

tardy pictures. I LOVE everything

funthreads made for me! I am keeping

her in my list of personal swappers

for later  Wink

Let's get down to pics!

First off, she made these for my

little brother: A door sign and a

book...

Wait... she couldn't MAKE a copy of

the Davinci Code! NO, she cut it up!

Check out the liner!


Detail shot: It is really well made in there!



Next up is for me! Two sets of coasters. One for everyday and one for Christmas. The little fabric box holding the everyday ones is so cute Wink


My Mom has been going to Curves for the last three months. She has lost a total of 17 inches Smiley I am super proud of her. To encourage her along to her goal, funthreads made her a waterbottle cozy with Pink Panther fabric! It also has a keychain on it, how thoughtful! She even embroidered a towel for her sweaty work outs! All are super pink which is so my mom  Roll Eyes Girly girl....


Detail of the embroidery... what a pro you are!


Another one for me Smiley A stack of the most well made napkins I have seen in my whole life. Ladies, these are
professional quality, thick and meticulously made. There needs to be a*faint* emoticon for this!


Next up are some pillows that she appliqued. They are exquistly made.

I think they are machine done and they are just too awesome. The first one is for my sister who is crafty
like me  Wink and the penguins are mine!







P.S. Don't you love my hand me down couch? When we were bringing it home we lost the middle cushion on the
free way and my boy had to be like Frogger and retrieve it Smiley

I think this guy might be my favorite thing in the box. He is just so charming!


A fantastic plastic braid keychain... It may be a gift... I may keep it...hmmm choices Smiley



Another gift for me! I don't have potholders yet and I am learning to become a good wife *gag* and cook
well. Tee hee. Tasty recipes for me to try out! Let me know if anyone wants close ups!



I think between the two posts you can see how lucky I am! Funthreads, sorry I didn't post sooner. I love love love everything you made for me and for my family. I have been so busy this year that these will help take the weight off of me a bit for presents Smiley

Thanks again!

Holy crap! Those penguin pillows are too freaking cute. How in the world did you stuff so much in the box? That looked like about 3 or 4 boxes worth of stuff. Those purse sets are cute too! Way to go Funthreads!
