Lyndsay614, that stuff is great! I just adore that owl with his corduroy wings, too cute!

Prepare your Wist fingers............

I received my package today from Weez. This was her first swap and I am the lucky one who got her for a partner. She got my package today also Wink

First up ~ A chewy toy for my dog. Marley got it first and totally destroyed the bottle inside. It opens and you replace the plastic bottle with a new one. Saves me time on trying to crush them for recycling Wink

Some awesome handmade tags

Fantastic handmade cards. These are so nice that I will never give them away!

A book on owls....... look at the name  Grin

Japanese fabric ~ I love it!!!

A zipper pouch ~ The ladies at the quilting class are going to love this

A cute tissue holder

A covered diary/notebook ~ Velcro closed with an owl ~ glass owl beaded book mark that I could not get an unblurry picture of...


An owl charm bracelet !!!!! I've wanted one forever!!!!!!!!

An owl purse!!!!!

Before and after

Guess who trying to make things her own

This is the best package ever!!! I love everything!! I have been so spoiled that now I am a brat!!

I received from Jennilocker today! All kinds of owlicious stuff in one box! Here are the pics, and I will do my best to describe...

Awesome antique-looking owl earrings! Dangly, just how I like them. I really think these are so cute--thanks Jennifer!

A felted owl bag! I have never owned anything felted before... and there's a coin pouch too!

Owl painting, inspired by my Wist, owl gift box and ceramic pail. This will be great for odds and ends Smiley

Owl trivet for my kitchen, a felted owl pin, and two pictures of trees she picked out at an estate sale. I love trees and nature images, so this was super thoughtful!

An extra, a knit bag with colorful stripes! Though she didn't make this, the colors and style are so bright and fresh--great for summer.  Grin

The whole package--she also made 5 owl notecards (shown in the center), and sent a ceramic owl pail, a tiny green owl box, from my Wist, and a purse sewing pattern (very useful!)

Thanks Jennifer! For sending such a thoughtful, owly package, and also for being such a great organizer!


Personal swaps... Would love to trade sewn stuff for some cool hand-carved stamps.

Awww thanks Lindsay!  I am so glad that you liked everything!  When I saw those pictures I thought of all the cool trees on your wist and had to get them!  And I'm super glad that you liked the purse.  I am totally obsessed with making felt things at the moment!

I received my fantastic package from humboldtcherry today (how cool that we got our packages on the same day)! I just got a job after looking for over a year(yay money for crafting stuff) and I'm looking forward to using some of my new owl stuffs there.

Look at this cute framed artwork. I asked for something with a fox and owl because my dog who is a shiba inu looks like a fox. 2 of my favorite things in one- my doggy and owls. It's on fabric and colored with pencils and the outlines are all hand embroidered!

My fuzzy Owlbert! I'm going to enjoy cuddling him when winter comes around

Owliver, the Spring owl.

I got these awesome and useful owl and personalized pouchy bags.

I'm thinking of using this one as a lunch bag. That fierce owl will chase away anyone planning to steal my treats.

One of the pouches was stuffed with all these fun things...

lovely little feltie

embroidered needle book

embroidered pin cushion

embroidered tea wallet (definitely going to be using this with my owl tea set at work)

The whole fantastic package

I love everything! Thank you so much humboldtcherry for turning me into a life long swapper!

I have a deathly affinity for the cute!

Weez!!  My package was awesome and I'm SO happy you like yours!! The picture was done with crayons. After you fill in the color, you iron over it and the wax melts and becomes permanent on the fabric. It was the first time I have ever done it. I'm glad you like it. Thank you for being the BEST partner!! I am more than ecstatic with my owly goodness!!!

oh my goodness. i recieved from heatherweather33 and it is amazing. i came home from work and got to open her wonderful package! this is her first swap as is mine and i could not have had a better partner or experience. she got my tastes 100% exactly and was so wonderful during the crafting time. i love everything!!!!

ps she sent so many beautiful things that i had to group some in pictures.

first, the best most wonderful owl clock that ever did exist! its so amazing i cant wait to put it up on my wall!

next is a fanastic mug to drink my tea out of (i love tea) yes, she drew that owl too! a FELTED OWL PLUSHIE! ahh! so excited! he is so cute and he most definetely wil NOT be a cat toy! and a wonderful wooden bell with an owl on it!

next is a pair of earrings and a beutiful necklace she made. a hand painted ceramic owl and a cute little owl stamp. that jewelry will most defintely be worn and shown off tomorrow!

another picture of the jewelry so you can see it better

then i pulled out a great frame with two owl pictures in it! i already know where it is going!

then some amazing extras i did not expect at all!!!!! a six pieces owl stencil that i am so excited to use! 2 clear stamps ( i was looking at them today at work and was thinking i wanted to try them but we dont have the owl ones!) an owl tin which is great because im obsessed with tins, a velvet color in poster with markers and a beautiful wonderful fantastic glass owl.

then, the best hand painted tshirt anyone has ever seen. she put so much detail and work into it i cant believe she made it look so wonderful! its also the perfect size and my favorite color!

i had to put it on right away!

and lastly a group shot.

i cant believe what a wonderful package heatherweather33 sent. she went way over and about and her artwork and drawings are so beautiful. she was a great partner and i could not have had such a wonderful first swap experience without her.
