Okay .. I will be breaking this down into two posts because of the number of pictures for each one. First up is the package I received from Shelanie. Are you ready?

First up, the wonderfully decorated box, by Shelanie's son Tyler. My son tells me that they are clone troopers. Love the box!



Group shot of everything!



A little closer.. one half



Lil closer other half



close ups of the fabrics she sent  .. I love the fire fighter fabric! I've got plans in my head for some of the fabric already LOL



The quilt squares and blocks she sent. These are going to make a quilt for my youngest daughter's Our Generation Girl dolls!



then she sent yarn, craft sticks, ribbon, glitter foam snowflakes, star ornaments, glitter glue, two patterns, three embroidery iron ons (I collect these) Melty bead kit, a stamp and pad, sewing thread and charms. 



I love it all Shelanie!! Thank you

Next up, we have the wonderful box from AvaBrownEyes!  Honestly, I love everything you sent and have plans for some of it already!


First up is a group shot of everything together.



Close up of the yarn cakes from reclaimed sweaters! Seriously cool. I've tried to do this and just have not been successful. You rock!



Close ups of the really cool fabrics Avabrowneyes sent. I just adore the vintage kitchen kids! And the blue, beautiful!



A deck of Lord of the Rings cards and a drawstring bag! And more fabric!



baggie of mini thread spools, these are going in my purse. I carry a sewing kit with me! also craft paint. My 12 yo daughter is trying to talk me out of them LOL



and finally, a hard shelled make up kit! too cool, I love boxes and storage stuff Shocked)  I'll find the perfect use for it, I just know it.




Thank you so much Avabrowneyes. I love everything!

Whew, I'm glad you did, Solitaire. I have so much yarn it's ridiculous (57 skeins at last count) and it just keeps growing from all this reclaimed yarn. I was happy to send it to you Smiley Happy crafting!

Hi there! I received my swap box Thursday and I'm just now posting pictures. My sender was gkswife and was it stuffed!



There was a great variety of fabrics, a pink clipboard, 2 red bags that are the perfect size to put WIPs of my knitting in my backpack (I've been trying to find something other than shopping bags so thank you!), some fun furry yarn, sparkly socks, little tags, kit to make my own fabric buttons, a tape measure, a Simpsons pillowcase with Homer & Marge on one side and Bart on the other, and a cute Kansas postcard.

Thank you so much!

I received from troll1984 today and what a haul I made!

first off, I got the label maker which is exactly like my old one (that just pooped out) except that the one she sent works and is gray! I put them together before tossing out the old one:


Here is all the loot together (can you find the hidden message?)


the jewelry goodies (I'm wanting to get into some more jewelry making and this stuff is so awesome!)


the stickers and misc card making/scrapbooking supplies


I'm not sure what I like the most it is all so great! I am especially loving the Dragon Tales fabric as both of my boys loved that show, I may put it in each of the memory quilts I'm going to make them. The deep pink fabric is a silky wonderful fabric, no idea what to use it for yet but I love the color and the feel of it! There are cross stitch supplies, including a baby afghan that I now have a plan for! I could just go on & on about all of it I am so excited! Thank you so much troll1984!!


What I have to do today: get groceries & do laundry
What I want to do today: play with my new goodies!


Even my hubby thought it was awesome loot!
