Also, Eliea, that helicopter shirt is awesome! Is it freezer paper stencil?
yeppers my first one. Super easy that's why I called it a small. It literally took like10 minutes total. The rest was all drying time.
Oh Aikibookworm the case has a flap with snaps on it that unsnaps and has a bunch of sections for his games. I took a fuzzy snapshot of it with my camera phone becasue I was so pleased with it but it's under the big darth vader section. Smiley

I'm really glad you liked it I had a lot of fun wracking my brain trying to make everything work. Is the purse big enough though? I was a bit worried it would be too small but I thought perhaps it would make a nice craft bag if it was... lol
Oh the llama is washable and dryable too just in case you ever need to know. Just put him in a pillowcase to protect his eyes from scratches. Smiley

Edited to add:Oh and I bought myself one of the tomato grow kits too and mine have all ready been transplanted to bigger pots. I had about 14 seedlings and it looks like somewhere between 8-5 will survive. Definitely wait till all the seedlings are at least 4 inches tall to transplant becasue my smaller guys are the ones that I don't know if they'll make it.

Are you kidding?  He's already TOTALLY scoped that case out!  The DS games are in the slits, the rumblebox is in the zipper pocket, the DS is in it's area..... He's completely explored that thing!  Cheesy

Love everything from blushingbluegrass! The tote is super cute - what's it made out of? I recognize the tea towel from the lunch roll - super cute use for that one!! Smiley

I am so glad you liked everything, teag! I was a bit nervous!!!

The tote was made out of a flour sack towel for the lining, two deconstructed hideous canvas tote bags, and a ribbon from a pack of ribbons. The lunch roll was made out of a tea towel and lined with a flour sack towel.

I had a lot of fun with this swap! I had so many ideas, it was really hard to decide which to pursue...

Well, sorry everyone but Beccasong gave me the best swap package of all! 

I got a gorgeous tote bag made completely from scratch (no pattern at all!) with 3 placemats, a belt, and some ribbon - in my favorite color and a size that I'll use all the time. 

Then a darling frame for the boys' nautical bedroom with perfect blue plastic rope added and a cute scrapbook paper sail boat.  How'd you get the rope on the inside?  Did it come in blue?

And my husband's ultimate favorite (of everything I've ever received...ever): a Death Star t-shirt that honestly I'll probably use for both boys.  I've never heard of this freezer paper stenciling thing, but it looks soooo great! 

She also threw in some darling Star Wars paper toys that my son is going to love.  Thanks so much.

I received from MsMia late last week! Sorry for the delay in posting... have had all kinds of craziness with computers + being busy.

I got some super-creative and cute memo boards:


One for each of my sons! They're meant to be hung on those over-the-door hooks (I have some!)

And MsMia caught me a fairy:

Thanks, Cam!! I really enjoyed your creativity and love everything!

I am glad you like it.  I was super worried.  I received your package too, I will post pictures soon.  I am super under the weather and so is my 2 year old. 

BTW:  I meant to write, to hang the boards with wreath holder, but hooks should work fine.
