Very nice package!  The turtle on the messenger bag is particularly cool-- is that an applique?

I was there with OGD when she made the messenger bag...ti ROCKS!  And, I was the tryer-on-er for the hoodie to make sure it should be a good fit for Ironic Smiley  Her and I are about the same size, and I would TOTALLY have loved to get that hoodie in a swap!

I received my package from Oxnynox today and was so ecstatically happy, my husband thought I was losing my mind.  She is a great crafter, full of details and I am so happy she was my partner!!

This is the full lot:


My fabric.  An awesome teal with green flowers, a cute yellow with fruit, and a fabulous green with birds and flora.  AND an adorable doggie salt and pepper shaker set.


side note:  The dogs were wrapped in a chinese magazine page and I thought it would be great to use the font for crafting, then I thought, I have no idea what it says.  The photo was for mushroom pills, but the words could say "May give you an erection lasting 4 hours".

Here is a close up of the awesome painted tote bags.  These will be very handy with shopping.  LOVE the Mad Hatter because the 10/6 on his hat is my B-day.


This was not in my questionaire, so these 2 items are total mind readers:
I am a tea freak.  The totally delicious tea (which me and my husband sampled 10 minutes after getting it.) I love the smell, the chunky bits and the whole body happiness it gives you.
I stopped using my pin cushion last week so this is perfect with glow in the dark pins!!! 


2 necklaces and 4 hair accessories!  Love them all.  The bead work is amazing.


The greatest shawl!  the scallops on the bottom have glass beads.  Perfect for Louisiana weather.  I immediately put it on.


This is the cool shawl pin close-up.  It is a stone with chain maile!!


And straight from my wists, the scarf that I looked at yesterday on my computer and thought, "I really want that!"
I LOVE scarfs and now I have one that I can wear year round.


This was the best package ever!!  I absolutely love every single thing.
THANK YOU ONYXNOX!!!!!!

YAY!  Glad you got everything safely and LIKED IT!!!  I was really worried if everything would reach you safely since I really stuffed it pretty tightly into the envelope.  I never even looked at the paper covering the dogs - that was how they wrapped it at the store to keep them from breaking, I took it off and rewrapped it a couple of times to make sure the dogs were not broken, and never even thought to look at the paper Cheesy  That is funny though - for all I knew it could have come from a Chinese porn mag Cheesy

That is so cool about the Mad Hatter and your birthday!  I wish I had known that before, I would have tried harder to bring out the 10/6 on his hat in the tote then.

The tea and the cupcake were just two extras.  I wanted to make something crocheted and stuffed, and since you sewed, I figured something that could work as a pin cushion would work.  I thought of making an amigurami animal - but then there is just something so wrong about stabbing a cute thing with eyes with lots of needles.  I could not do it.  As for the tea, I happened to be at a tea shop and thought I would send something to you from there too, since I liked their stuff too.  Good guess, huh?  I love coffee - it's a love/hate relationship though because of what too much does to me (hyper, nutty, heart racing, talkstoodarnedfastt ounderstand, crazy, weirdo, nurse), but tea calms and soothes me.

It was great being partnered with you, and I loved this swap - the randomness, the long crafting time.

Another AMAZING package! Wow!

The fabrics are so bright and colorful and as a dog owner, I love those salt and pepper shakers! The scarf and shall are totally fantastic as well. Are they both crotched?

How did you do the printing on the tote bags? Freezer paper?

Very very fun.

When are we doing Random Swap Round 3???

Yes, they are crocheted.  HeyVern indicated in her form that she wanted some crocheted stuff, and I had not done any in awhile since I was doing more knitting than crochet this year.  It was a nice change. 

The tote bag stencils were all done by freezer paper - a new crafting love I have discovered this past spring.

I still have never learned to crochet! UGH! I've been a knitter for years but for whatever reason I just can't figure out that damn hook and slip knot business. Seeing patterns as cute as these just make me more angry that I can't wrap my head around the craft!!

I also love freezer paper stenciling. That Mad Hatter is really fabulous and very intricate. You must have spent a great deal of time exato'ing all of those little areas. Great job!
