I think she found him at a thrift store  Cheesy I have to decide where he's gonna hang out. I have a giant Animal from the muppets in my room on top of my stereo so maybe he should rock out there with him.

OMG! Of course he should!!!

Thank you so much for all the great comments. I am so glad you loved it all. I really liked seeing you wearing all the things I made you. It was my first time making dread jewelry so I'm glad it worked. Cool glasses by the way. You also picked out good names for the pet rocks. I can tell by the looks on thier faces they like them (LOL).  As for the Kiss doll, he should definitly hang out with Animal. (one of my favorite Muppets!!!) ROCK ON!!! Grin

Yay I sent yesterday, I squeezed and squeezed and got it all in a small padded envelope as last time I did this (I sent to the UK) the parcel got there within 4 days, quicker than a larger parcel I sent within Canada! and Kewlmomma my husband totally lied on the customs declaration (looks over shoulder in paranoid way!)  Shocked so it won't give the game away if you were to read it.

I'd love to say that this was my idea but I just forgot to tell him what was in it when he popped out to the post office so he just squished it and surmised it was a scarf!!  Grin

Finally got my box today! kaleidoscope_eyes did an amazing job!

Here is the box:



The awesome card and hat box covered in an 1980's bow pattern.


Lovely clutch. I love the lining which is navy and white polka-dots.


Fabric, button ring. I've been wearing it since I saw it in the box Cheesy


A picture of everything. Buttons, vintage needles, 2 magnets, the ring, clutch, and the teacup pin cushion.




I loved everything Smiley

Oh that teacup pin cushion is so cute!!! I am so stealing getting inspired by that. Grin This swap is turning out so great and everyone ended up with such cute stuff!! I can't wait for another round and this time it's gonna be more fun not to have to stick to a time period theme.
