I received from SMLounsbury Saturday and WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!  First of all let me apologize for not having better pictures but my camera's cord is MIA and I had to highjack an iphone and email the pictures to me...also Zoe was a bit aggrivated that I was making her model and not letting her eat grass.

We had discussed in PMs that I would like to have things for Zoe's first birthday party which is going to be owl themed.... all those who are shocked please raise their hands.  Boy oh boy did she come through on this!!!!!!!!!!!!

First up is the ADORABLE onesie that has the CUTEST owl and Zoe's name on it!!!!!!!!! She said that this was her first embroidered onesie...you could NOT tell!!  She made this so that she could eat cake and get messy in!


Next up are the dress and matching headband.  This dress looks like it came off of a designer store's shelf.  She and her daughter Olivia (Hi! Olivia!!) made the owl shaped buttons out of Sculpey!!!!  I am blown away by the buttons!!!! She put a fuzzy owl applique on the front of the dress and Zoe has already enjoyed petting it.  It fits PERFECT and will be the cutest birthday dress EVER!!!!  She also said that this was the first headband that she had made.  I think that I could make 50 and they wouldn't turn out this perfect!!



Now apparently at some point I claimed that I didn't want an owl stuffy. Hmmmmm.... why would I lie?  This was made for Zoe but I am having serious thoughts about keeping it for myself...ahem...I mean putting it up for her until she gets bigger.  This owl's name is Annie and Olivia named and cared for her SOOOOO good until she came to live with us.  Stacey made the pattern up so she is the original prototype of something that is sure to make her rich and famous, or at least famous on Craftster.  This little sucker took her over 6 hours to make!! Talk about preserverance!  She was SO worth it though!!! Adorable!!



This is a shot of the onesie that shows the embroidery and 2 BEAUTIFUL owl pictures that Olivia made.  Also if you notice the small owl it is made of perler beads and Olivia made that!!!  She is going to be one crafty little lady!!



And finally she included a super cute owl frame and a bag of goodies for me which had Burt's Bee's yummies in it!! I LOVE Burt's Bee's!!!!!!!!!!  There was also a bag of candy for my soon to be stepson in the box but it was confiscated this morning before I had a chance to take its picture.  It was well loved for all of 30 seconds.  Did he even stop to taste it?



I am blown away by the talent and generosity of Stacey and Olivia!!!  They outdid themselves and have made my daughter the best possible birthday gift ever!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG- I love that the onesie coordinates with the dress! And that is about the cutest baby dress I've ever seen. Seriously mad skills there! And that crocheted owl is one of the best I've seen. She has so much personality!

My favorite part is that SM and her daughter crafted for Jenni and her daughter. I love crafty families. Smiley

You all are too sweet.  I wanted to do a concept set where Zoe could have the cutsie dress for all of the pictures that would be taken of her cute little self, and then have something that coordinates to get messy in.  I'm stealing this idea for Harper, who turns one in August.  I have never actually even made a stuffy before, so Annie is the very first of any kind that I've ever made.  I tried to make her more kid appealing than ami-looking.  Trust me, Olivia was so in love with Annie that we made another just for her.  I am going to write the pattern one of these days...

Zoe looks so adorable!  I am thrilled with the fit.  Thank you so much for posting these pictures.  Liv was so excited to see Zoe with Annie.  This truly is the best part of the swap for me.  I love seeing pictures and knowing that you liked everything, Jenni.  And I'm glad you like Burts Bees.  I'm a total addict and I spread the love whenever I can.  Smiley  Glad the batman candies were liked as well, lol. 

I copied this perler bead pattern.  We bought the kit at Michael's last year for a dollar, but Liv is all about the girly right now so she made this one pink-er.

My partner woobie received last week, but she's been having a pretty major family emergency and has been unable to post pictures. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts. And to save her the hassle, here are the pictures I took before sending.

First is some random jewelry. She wanted a charm bracelet, so I made one and a pair of matching earrings. The other pieces are a pendant I put on a chain and a vintage pin I found at a thrift shop. Also shown is a pouch I added an owl patch to.


Next is a trinket dish I did in my ceramics class. This picture was taken before it was finished. Now it has a really nice, glossy, lacquer-like finish on it. But this picture shows the design and colors pretty well. Hopefully, eventually woobie can post a picture of this with the finish on it. I love the way it turned out.


Finally- woobie and I are both HUGE Harry Potter fans... there were a lot of pin cushions and needle books and things on her wists... so I made her a post owl pincushion with needlebook wings. He's carrying a package to woobie, and the package un-velcros into a thread catcher.


The back of the owl has a spot for a small pair of scissors. This picture shows the needlebook wings as well. He's a bit large for a pin cushion, so he could also be used as a plushy if she wants. I love him so much I've already made a similar one as a gift and am planning to make myself one. Smiley


There was also a set of stamped owl greeting cards and a sock owl... as well as some other extras, but I didn't get picture.

woobie said she loved everything, which makes me very happy. Hopefully things get better for her shortly so that she can come back to Craftster-land and be less stressed.

Get your wisting fingers ready girls.  I have received and magsb80 is just too good to be true.  This was her first crafster swap, if you see her in another, grab hold with two hands, she is a keeper.  Wink  Thanks Magdalena for a package of awesomeness, I love everything!
Firstly, check out the cool doodles decorating the box (these are only a selection)


(how very true as you will soon see)

First out of the box was this little fella.  My son Will grabbed him and has only just let go, 3 hours later.

You might recognise his cousin from  here
He came in his own little drawstring bag, which will be very useful for other bits and bobs.

I love, love, love this Alexander Henry fabric and was so close to buying some to use in this swap too.  What great taste you have magsb80!
Everything else was beautifully wrapped in paper, decorated with feathers, and flowers, or these cute little owl printed brown paper bags.

Everything else you say?  Yep.  check it out.
This is where my first camera went flat and I swapped to another without realising there was a big slodge on the lens, so the next few pics have a splodge, please try hard to ignore it.

How about this awesome lined bag, with a zippered pocket inside. Envious? Ha! You should be.

More AH fabric in this cute little zippered pouch, and btw did you notice the cutest cute little tags magsb80 put on everything?  I did.

A pattern for the sock owls I have wisted from craft schmaft.  Can't wait to have a go at this.

A cute owl embroidered on a tea-towel.  He would almost make drying dishes fun.  Yeah, I said almost, who likes drying dishes?  Anyway, he is too spesh to get wet.  He can just hang out in the kitchen making wise owly comments.

Yep, still going can you believe it?

More AH, this time in the form of a tissue holder.  Man-o-man I am fit to burst.
And lucky last, with unfortunately a photo that does not go close to doing it justice, the apron I requested at the top of my list.  Magsb80 I love it, please, please please if you took a photo can you post it as this photo is not doing justice to the thing of beauty and function you have made for me. It is reversible and just truly too perfect.

Magdalena, thank you and thank you again for being an awesome partner.  You have made me the happiest little owlina and your package came at the end of a blerchy day teaching and really bucked me up.  Thank you.
