It makes perfect sense to me that this swap would turn out some amazing work. Amazing craftsters inviting other amazing crafsters to swap? What else could it be but amazing???  Grin  I love most everything I've seen so far! The poppet with the snail? Beautiful spider scarf? Several amazing and beautiful knit and crocheted projects? Wonderfully colored yarns and rovings? The pirate bags! Altered books! Resin jewelry! So many other beautiful projects!

I was lucky enough to have spookshowbaby77 invite me to swap with her and I will be forever grateful. We had done a couple of small swaps with each other both on craftster and flickr, and I think we've gotten pretty good at making things each other will love. I've enjoyed each swap we've done, but this round was particularly wonderful. I recently had some hard changes happen in my life, and doing this swap kept me focused on something positive and creative. I will be ever grateful to Kerry for the invite.

Then, on top of that, she went and sent me the most AMAZING package of stuff EVER! I received like a week ago and Kerry has been so patient with my situation (it's taken 3 days to get the pics uploaded), so I'm SO happy to show you what she sent me!

It would be almost impossible to take one picture of this swap package, so you are forewarned that this is pic heavy.

My one request made was for a tote. I asked for a very large one with handles long enough to throw over my shoulder. Boy did she deliver and then some! I love Professor X!


These two brooches were attached to my wonderful tote! I keep crossing my fingers that my teenager will not realize that they come off. Grin


An adorable clothes pin doll with a cute cardinal perched on her head and cuddling a moose in her arms.


A saucy angel ornament that reminds me of Pinky from Grease. Shell be hanging out in my car that I just bought to help keep me safe. She has a beaded halo and sparkles on her dress. I love her!


A great jar pincushion that Im already using! It was filled with little bits of whimsy that I love.


Heres the whimsy I was talking about.


This group shot shows a handkerchief embroidered with Kermit (my favorite Muppet) and a crocheted edge, some peace sign fabric and a bulldog named Semper Fidelis.  Im not sure if she crocheted it herself or if she bought it vintage. I love the colors though. Im also not sure if she knows (but Im guessing she does) that the bulldog is significant to me. Im a former Marine, so Semper Fidelis is the perfect companion.


The package actually came with TWO owl ornaments, which I had previously admired on Kerrys flickrstream. Unfortunately my daughter saw them and snatched one right out of the box!


An old Snoopy book that I pick up at least once a day to get a giggle, a MS felt flower kit (I LOVE MS), and a handful of trading cards.  Cards include everything from old school Battlestar Galatica, Star Wars (Han Solo!!!), XMen (Storm and Nightcrawler!!!), Powerpuff Girls, Batman and some others I can't remember off the top of my head. I love trading cards! My daughter thinks I'm a dork for getting so excited about them, and I'm okay with that.


Amazingly enough, Im almost positive Im missing something! Thank you SO much spookshowbaby77, for inviting me to swap with you and a HUGE thanks to Superduperhooker for organizing this herd of cats..I mean craftsters!

Hooray! I'm so glad you liked your package, fatewineroses! You are such a crafty inspiration for me, and it is always such a treat to swap with you.

Props must be given to my hubby for painting Professor X...but, I helped choose the colors. The bulldog was a thrift store find, I couldn't believe how perfect he was for this swap (yes, I stalked). I did not crochet the edging on the hanky (I wish!), and Kermit went a bit wonky when he came off the hoop, but I had to include him anyway.

I received the most wonderful package from Slingmomma this week!!!

First up are some glass necklaces and some bamboo tiles for me to play with.


The the main item I requested- a brand new wallet! I am totally in love with this thing! The fabric on the outside is so cool and the lining fabric is exactly the same as my purse that JennyBear made me in another swap.


There are just enough pockets to hold everything I need, and it is machine washable- a huge plus!. I am in awe of Slingmomma's sewing skills!!!


THANK YOU!!!
