I received an amazing package from spotnik yesterday! 

For vintage...

...she made this gorgeous necklace. She also included this cute little cards to label each of the categories.

For London...

...she made this awesome, tube-themed frame with some images from around London. It has already found a home in my apartment! Now, to find a good photo to fill it with....

For Harry Potter...

...she painted a glass with the sorting hat picking Gryffindor, my favorite house! On the other side of the glass, she wrote "Where dwell the brave at heart."

For coffee...


...she decorated a tote bag with coffee beans and indulged in my nerdiness by including a caffeine molecule. That made me smile! She also included some local coffee beans that I cannot wait to brew. They gave the entire package the aroma of coffee...mmm!

And lastly, for biology...

...she sewed this super cute plush amoeba and decorated a bowl with an amoeba. She also included a bag of tootsie rolls to put inside my new, very awesome candy bowl!

Here's a better photo of the design on the bowl:


Thank you so much for this amazing package, Spotnik! It was so much fun swapping with you!!

Thanks everyone!  And thanks for posting such great pics so quickly halfpint, I saved some of them, they turned out better than mine.

The bike clutch was knitted and felted, and the name and stripes were needle felted on.  The bike chain was taken from my friend's mountain bike.  My husband helped me take apart the pin with a chain breaker for his ATV, which was kinda tough because the pin sizes differ. I'm sure there's an easier way to do it, but.... Anyway, spraying lots of brake cleaner and scrubbing with a toothbrush cleaned up the chain fairly well.  Then I felted an i-cord and weaved it through, and added the keychain clip.

The armwarmers, I have to credit this tutorial for getting me started:
http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/sock_gloves
and craftster KLKing for helping me figure out how to do the applique.  I might post the project separately since lots of people have asked me about it.  Thanks for all the wistin' love!

Here are a few more pics of my stuff:

the back of the sweater clip, since I figure it will flip around when you wear it:


The magnets were from a sticker book and included a legend of what kind of train they are.  So on the back of the magnets, I numbered them to match the legend:


and here's the card I made too:

She requested some photographs, so I sent some prints of pictures I took while living in Florida... These are the pics I sent to her.

TracyinNH, I hope you liked it all! I had fun crafting.
