Yay!  I'm so glad you like everything, marethann!   We definitely have similar tastes, so it was extra fun to make things for you!  I got the tea wallet from A2K in Shop the Swap, and the needlebook is from pinkandinky, also in Shop the Swap. 

Also, did you see that the fabric in the embroidery kit has a matthew porter monkey in light blue ink?  Smiley

Ahhh!! I didn't even notice that. How fantastic. You know I love Matthew Porter. I can't wait to stitch it up!


In case anyone is interested...Matthe w Porter is a local Seattle artist who does adorable work.

I got my package from pinokeeo today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check out the amazing goodies - and get your wisting finger ready! Grin

The first thing I saw was this amazing ticket bowl. It's the perfect size and is so incredibly well made - I could put steel balls in that puppy and they wouldn't even make a dent. And I love how colorful it is - definitely will cheer up my craft room during the dull winter months!


And then I saw this and I squealed. I had wisted one of these that pinokeeo made for another swapper and was hoping against hope that I would get one. It's a pine needle basket and I can't even imagine the time that goes into this. I know it's a big photo, but I just had to show this off - the detail is stunning! This is going to be displayed in my living room - it's too pretty for me to put it in the craft room where I would be the only one to see it!


Next up is another item I wisted - a wood baby rattle! I should give it to my six month old niece, but I think I'm gonna keep it myself just in case Greg and I have kids someday. I mean, c'mon, this thing will be a family heirloom! Pinokeeo, I have no idea how you made this, but it's absolutely gorgeous and incredibly smooth.


And then I found some really cute scrabble coasters. These will be perfect for board game date night!


Snort couldn't wait to check out her gift! It's a tug-of-war rope with a tennis ball - she'll have lots of fun chasing after this!


Next up is something Snort-inspired, but it's for me! An adorable beagle puzzle that pinokeeo jigsawed (at least I think that's what she did). It's got a hanger in the back so I can hang it up - it's going to go to my office to cheer up my desk space. Wink


Here's a hilarious photo frame - it's not my fault! Unfortunately, I hear this more often than I would like from some of my employees.   Roll Eyes  Pinokeeo, what the heck happened to that car?!?


If all that wasn't enough, pinokeeo made me some pretty birch wood buttons. These are so sweet and will be perfect for a sweater I'm knitting!


And, last but certainly not least, she sent me a bunch of my favorite crack candy! I've already devoured about 1/3 of the box of sugar babies (shhhh, don't tell Greg) and can't wait to get my grubby little hands on all the other goodies! Grin


Thank you so, so much for a terrific package, pinokeeo! You spoiled me rotten and I can only hope you think the same thing when you get your package from me. Thanks again for swapping with me - you're the best!

Wow, what wonderful packages.  Love the scarves and totes!  I absolutely adore that ticket bowl.  Come to think of it, I love everything you ladies have made.

Hey, Asphalt Queen.  I'm glad that you like your goodies.  You take some great photographs.  I don't think I could show off any better. 

As for the car, think Stephanie Plum, and you'll know what I was thinking. 

The ticket bowl is rigid because it has tons of glue and varnish on it.  I love this new technique I'm using.

The Snort-inspired photo is actually a children's puzzle that I cannibalized to make this photo for you.  I saw it and knew that's what I had to do.  I'm also glad that Snort likes her new toy.

Anyway, enjoy!  I'm looking forward to my package now.  I know it's going to be good.

Aha!!! I had completely forgotten you asked me about that - that's frickin' hilarious! (It was funny before but I didn't quite "get it" so I thought it was more amusing.) And I find it even funnier that, since it didn't dawn on me what you were referencing, I immediately thought of my employees. Smiley

I don't know if you can tell, but the ticket bowl isn't round.  It's an oval shape.

Very Cool! It's so fun seeing the diverse talents of this group. That pine needle basket is incredibly unique and incredibly beautiful.

AsphaltQueen - Snort is adorable. She looks very happy with her new toy!
