I cannot for the life of me get good pictures, so if you have better ones PirateColey, feel free to post them!

I got an amazing package, AND she send some items for my daughter!

this is eggbert. he is my favorite, i think, although its hard to tell because i love everything. My weenie dog also loves eggbert, but he ran when i got the camera. they snuggle. Eggbert makes a fantastic pillow, AND hes the most adorable plushie ever!

here is the pile of stuff minus the really awesome owl tissue paper stuff was wrapped in. there is a really cool bookmark, an apron which was something i wanted really bad, a cute candle, the print in the middle is to die for and is perfect for my tastes, a little birdie candle, the owl embroidered wall hanging with deliciously creepy eyes which i have failed to capture in the picture, and other extras.

this is the stuff that was sent for Shirley, my daughter. She loves all of it, especially the necklace and the journal, although the mirror with the beautiful S on the back is amazing too.

and a better picture of the apron. I have already been wearing it, even to make microwave dinners and ramen noodles. hehe. I am in love with it! thanks Nicole, I hope my package is as perfect for you as this one was for me!

Awesome package.  Yes, Eggbert is quite a handsome fellow isn't he?  I want to see a photo of the embroidery, please?

Here are a couple close-ups. Excuse the graininess... my idiot cat pulled my camera off my desk... it took grainy pictures for a day, then died completely. lol.

The embroidery wall hanging thingy was actually a thrift store find. I don't have a close-up picture... but it appears to have been a piece of owl fabric that someone sewed around the owls, stuffed them, then added orange safety eyes. It's total cheese and more then a little creepy. lol.





It was fun to make a mini-package for Lady's daughter. I don't have kids, so I always find it fun to craft for other peoples.

Wow, I love the apron and the bookmark! And pretty much everything else so far, lol. Last night I had another extra fall out of the bubble mailer Crafty used- a lovely little bird pin. What a neat surprise!

Awww! Eggbert is very cute! I like the bookmark, too. I've only ever seen bookmarks like that here on craftster. Where does everyone get them? Or how does one make them?

You can buy the main stem of the bookmarks at most craft stores. I get mine at Hobby Lobby in the jewelry section. You can also order them online. They come plain or super-fancy and in different sizes. Then you add stuff to them just like your would make jewelry. They're fun to make and fun to use... be careful if you have cats though- mine LOVE to steal my fun dangley bookmarks. Smiley

And thanks for the compliments, everyone. This was a fun swap to craft for. The bird fabric on the apron started out as a god-awful oversize place mat I found at a thrift store. I knew I had to liberate the fabric and do something fun with it.

On a side note- my husband refers to Eggbert as "The Furbie" because of the shape. As in: "Did your partner like The Furbie?" lol.

hehe i LOVE the furbie. its the best ever. and I may have erroneously referred to the owl thingy as embroidery. Its not really embroidered, its just on an embroidery hoop and my brain translated that into embroidery. I will try to get a closeup of it later. I am having some camera issues though. I forgot to put the owl bracelet in there because I was wearing it! haha, I swear if my head wasnt attatched I would lose it.

I may be sending yours on the send date PirateColey, as I still have not found a clear answer on the legality issue on the one thing, and there is something I want to put in the package that I cannot get until friday.
