His head is wobbly and it cracks me up! He and Little Bird are already nesting on one of the shelves in my craft room. They're making themselves quite at home. Engelbert is just below the shelf on the couch... he's there because I keep picking him up, squeezing him, and giggling maniacally. He kind of looks like a bloated tick from certain angles, which (perversely) adds to his appeal. Smiley I'm rather in love with him.

Plus- I got to add an Alaska magnet to my States-I've-Swapped-With board. Which totally rocks.

haha a bloated tick! I know the color is off for a kiwi but i didnt have sparkly brown and i thought the black looked neat. plus you can totally curve his beak however you want, even up! thats what I kept doing to it. As I was making him i got asked if I was making a hat, a pillow, a jug, a bong, a pear, and a peanut. its hilarious the things people think of when you dont tell them what youre doing. the owl head was supposed to be wobbly, cause i was thinking about how they turn thier heads all the time, but its eyes ended up freaking me out and i dont know what it is, but something seems off about him lol.

I received from OhThat last week and have been a slacker and am only putting up the pics of what she sent me today.  (Sorry ohThat!)  Here is the pic of the whole stash together (well except that I might have already demolished a couple more packets of sweets  Undecided )

She made me the cutest zipper purse/pouch which is so well made and she said she is only learning zippers, she did awesome!
And the cutest little birdy stuffie.  It is made with fabric that has US states on it, my kids loved it.  They also loved that in her little note to me she also included US coins.  My son now thinks we have money just like the Sim-Sims (The Simpsons).  She included a kit to make owl cards and owls are probably my favouritist bird.
Here are the close-ups, purse:

and the birdy, too cute huh?

Sorry for the dodgy indoor flash pics, I was trying for a daytime pic but have been flat out like a lizard drinking.
Thanks OhThat, you are a great partner.

Yay! I received! I am so excited to share everything with you...I still need to PM my partner, but I literally got it like 30 minutes ago, and I just had to post here first! My lovely partner, Zoma, was worried, as it took SO long to get here...but worry no more!

Here is everything together (except one thing I'll show in a minute):



And close-ups:


A fabric and felt owl iPhone cover with button eyes from my wists! So beautiful, and it fits the iPhone PERFECTLY! I showed my husband, and he sais "Finally! Something to protect your phone!" He is always getting on my case for just plopping it in my purse unprotected. No more!!


Beautiful artwork...SO CUTE! I don't know what medium she used, but its precise and gorgeous!


Cutouts of birds from the most beautiful papers...one feels like tissue! Stunning!


Little extras: Cute fabric featuring eggs in a nest, Cadbury Mini Eggs, which were very flat and very melted and very good (They are actually one of my favorite candies, but I've only ever seen them here around Easter! So yes, I ate it all anyway! LOL) And the cute funny paper that the iPhone cover was wrapped in. Its so random, I thought I'd share! Says things like: "Bob leading Luck is this best friends!!" "Little fiends always together looking for troubles" and no, I didn't making any spelling errors, that's really what it said, but its all written backwards! I'm amused!

And here's the thing that didn't get in the first picture:


It's a little stuffed birdie with a little jingle bell in its tail! My 4 1/2 month old is just learning to reach for things....so he was enamored by this! Perfect for his little hands!  In the last pic he brought it up too fast and it poked his eye! (He thinks those kinds of things are funny!)

Anyway, thank you SOO much! Thanks for taking me on as your partner, even though I was a newbie, and really showing me what a package is supposed to look like!

Holy cow, that iPhone cover is heaven.  I'm making an iPad cover for my friend for his birthday, and perhaps something like that would be amazing.  (In super masculine greens and browns, of course!  Tongue)

No spelling errors, but definitely a grammatical one! Tongue

I love the iPhone cover!! I might have to do something similar for my camera... And that paper- lolololz! Definitely save that for later crafting use.

And, okay, I'll say it... your baby is ADORABLE!! What a cute swap item too!
