Okay, get ready for awesomeness! My little girls are THRILLED with the package that we received from 6iggle yesterday.

Here they are, ripping it open, super-excited:


Can you tell what just happens to be on my older daughter's sweater?

This was an appropriate swap for her, especially.

Here's the note from 6iggle that they were SO excited to read:


And the surprise? In some of the eggs, it was this:


And in other of the eggs, it was this:

Did I mention that they were SUPER-excited?

So there were lots of other cute little gifties for happy little girls--

--but then, and this is so cool, 6iggle made coloring pages! The girls LOVE these. They've already done a couple:


--and there are more. There's this really great one, in particular, of two long-necked dinosaurs and some hearts. When they finish coloring that one, I'm going to frame it in their room.

AND there's a dino excavation kit, which Willow has been working HOURS on already, and a volcano kit, which I'm going to have to post a video of later--it's wicked sweet. But here's the best thing ever:

A dino playset! It's beautifully made, out of all kinds of fabrics, and the girls adore it. It has tons of little places for dinos to hide:


And there were also lots of foam sheets so that the girls could make some dinos to play on their playset, and 6iggle made them some foam dinos, too!


Willow took her new coloring book and crayons to her sister's dance class today, and the girls have spent practically the entire day playing with their playset, coloring dino pictures, making dino stuff out of foam, and playing with their new toy dinos. This package was a hit! Thanks, 6iggle!!!

I got my swap package from turtleslovecabbage a few days ago! Somehow we made half the same things for each other.
But anyway she sent me a great package! Can you believe this was her first swap??

She sent me a very pretty Pterodactyl necklace, which is made of recycled plastic! I'm not a big jewelry fan but I really like this, it's so pretty!


A stenciled I <3 Dinosaurs shirt:


A pretty brown crocheted scarf, modeled by little Penelope


A gorgeous and so well done little stegosaurus changepurse, I think inspired by the one on a previous swap (I made one of these too - and turtleslovecabbage's is way better!) She recycled the zipper off of one of those bags like sheets come in. I never would have thought but it's an awesome idea.


And my favorite bit, a dino crochet hook case that is going to be exactly perfect because I'm too lazy sometimes to have to re-roll the hook roll I have now and tie it up all nice and this one just shuts all nice and easy with the little velcro under the button Smiley Perfect! Plus, it's apparently made from re-purposed placemats!

You can see it closed in the picture of everything together - there you can see the cute little dinosaur Smiley


Here's most everything, together:

In this you can also see the extra dinosaur fruit snacks, mmm, and the little bag she made also. I can't tell what it's made of but it seems like maybe fused plastic bags?

This was an awesome swap package and I'm totally embarrassed by mine now! Turtleslovecabbage has a great future in swapping, I think!

I'm so so happy you like everything Smiley I enjoyed making them for you.

The little bag is fused plastic. You were right.

On a side note it is amazing your cat is named Penelope Because that is my daughters name. Lol. Smiley
