Ooooh kay.. finally got all the pics off the cam and edited and resized and away we go!
First I'll post the pics of the AMAZING PILES OF loot I got from aspiring
. She sent me WAYYYYYYYYYYYY to much stuff and I love every last bit of it. My birthday was the day before so it was like one massively cool birthday present too! Anyways, on with the pics, you'll see why I'm gushing..
Knitted Arm warmers! These are a chunky black yarn (it's neat and stretchy bumpy) knit with a black shiney either fun fur or eyelash yarn I think. These are sooooo d@mn cool. I wore them for like an hour and it's warm out, just because they're so fun to look at.
Next, a thick and pretty pink cabled belt! I can tell you alot of work must have been put into this it was her first cable knitted project and I'm one lucky girl to have it. It's gorgeous and easy to wear
..and.. Now a hand painted pink and red kitty tote (I love the kitty face!) with an inner zipper pocket (I'm taking this on my birthday present trip to New Orleans so I can zip up my passport and stuff all safe inside). Cute Polka dot socks and the coolest hot pink Kung Fu mary janes ever. I might stencil some black stars on them.
And the first massive loot pile of assorted goodness!
There's: Shrinky dinks, a cute little watch, a hearty pencil case, sunglasses, nailpolish, a MIY (make your own) stenciled patch, and cutie flowered bag ties. Omg stuff!!
The second massive pile of assorted crafty goodness!
There's: One small ziplock of green floss, beads, buttons, little umbrellas and a poker chip magnet. Another small ziplock full of beads, umbrellas, floss and buttons this one in red and black. (can't wait to make stuff with this!). Three iron on patches, one little fuzzy purse one, one with black velvet hearts, and one thats sequin and beaded cherries.. omg thank you!
A little bead container filled with tiny colored dice beads (you must have seen in was in the rockabilly swap, I live for stuff like that!). A Knitters beginner guide which will be used for sure. A picture frame/tray (I'm using it for a bead tray it works awesome for that) a few postcard/flyers. A pack of 25 assorted hand sew needles, so useful.
Next.. (yes my mind boggles at home much COOL STUFF I got)..
I got 4 beautiful bracelets made with mostly glass beads, the black and red ones my favorite but I honestly like them all. Two pairs of earrings, the little red ones remind me of apples, and the other ones are cherries, she even did brown beads for the stems and a little green leaf. AMAZING! And she made me some gorgeous stitch markers out of pretty lampwork beads.
In other words I got totally spoiled. I swear I'm such a girl I was all sniffly. Thanks so very very much Carla, you're my craft swapin' hero, I can't believe how much stuff you got in one box!
