I received a package from titaniumhip today and I was so excited to open it! She is amazingly talented. Everything looks so great and looks so professionally made. This was my first personal swap.
THANKS AGAIN TITANIUMHIP! Grin
Now to show off my goodies...
Here is a monster that I love!!! She is the perfect shade of yellow and matched my walls perfectly! She looks so cute sitting in my living room!


Here is a necklace that I immediately put on  Smiley


Another monster! I think it may be knitted.


And then the rest of the envelope was packed full of a scarf that I adore, stickers, and greeting cards! They are so adorable I am not sure I want to mail them to anyone!


Thanks again  Kiss
I hope you like everything I sent you. You should get it any time now!

I sent edelC some beads a while ago, and she sent me an absolute boon of drawstring bags for re-giftiing in swap packages and what not! I think there are 21 bags here! wow, huh?

and she drew a pic of me in a house of beads, sending packages to the world which I think is adorable but couldn't get a good pic so will try that again when the battery gets recharged (if you got a decent pic of it post it edel!)



I like the ones in the top left corner a lot (they have gold swirly all over) and the other blue ones

the ones with deer draw me a lot too - probably because they fit where I live as I watch for them all the time so I don't run over any, LOL!

thank you so much edel! the drawing is sweet and I need to find a place to put it!

Ronda
Blessings!

Beautiful bags, and what a great idea as I have a couple of swaps in progress. Edel, are these easy to  make? Looks like folded right sides together and stitched open ends, and made a tunnel/channel for the cord? Too cute. I have so many small pieces of fabric.

I found a good tute online, which explains it step by step.

Once you have made a couple, you can alter the dimensions pretty much by eye. But this is an excellent tute. They are not difficult, just somewhat timeconsuming, fiddly little things. I press-ganged my daughter (aka child labour) to thread them all with ribbon.

I got a fantastic Halloween package from my swap buddy Woodland-Faerie!
Here is a pic of the whole package. An awesome Bloody Mary bag, Goddess prayer flag, holed stones, crack your own geode, Celtic bottle pendant, cookie, butterfly in resin Yule tree ornie, stitch kit, and an applique. There was some other candy too, but it went into a candy dish right away. There is also the corner of a ziploc bag to the right, that is homemade doggie treats for my pup.  Smiley

Here is a close up of the moon Goddess prayer flag! Look at that beading!

This is where I hang all my prayer flags from Woodland.

Here are some details from my bloody Mary bag. She based it on the nursery rhyme Mary Mary quite contrary. She also sent along the story behind the nursery rhyme. Really spooky!


I LOVE all the details on the bag! It is going to my new WIP bag!

Thanks Woodland I love everything! Can't wait for our next swap!

I did a baby themed swap with belladune and I'm FINALLY posting pictures.  Sorry for the delay! 

Anyway, belladune is not only talented, but also really nailed my tastes.  Check out all the fabulous crafty goodness!



A lovely scrapbook!  Sorry, I forgot to rotate the picture.   Roll Eyes  I love it because I'm scrapbooking impaired.  I can only do the basics.  The rest drives me crazy.  She made each page very simple so I don't get overwhelmed.  Isn't she clever?



A needle felted baby rattle!  She put something small (beads?) inside an Easter egg, closed it, and needle felted around it.  The felt is super-tight around the egg.  There is no way those beads are coming out.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I absolutely love it.









A fabric container embroidered with monsters!!  It is so cute. It is already full of diapers, wipes, and ointment. 

I absolutely love everything.  Thank you, belladune!

DesignVigilante and I did a swap! A needle case in exchange for a crochet hat.  Grin Here is the amazing hat she made for me. Sorry in advance for the crappy pics (I had to use my cell phone) and my crappy face. lol



I wish you could tell how thick it is! It's pretty amazing.



And an action shot.



Thank you so much Design. I love my hat!!! I would love to personal swap with you again sometime.  Grin
