Thanx guys for liking my painting.
I like the beaded necklace
Here close up pics of the hairdo I made for muria. It was my first time making something like that and I am a bit proud how it turned out...shrinky dink butterflies, metal cutout thingies and random beads

Oh my gosh you guys! This gallery is Full On Awesome! Seriously, there isn't a single thing I don't like. I'm stealing ideas left and right!

Much better pictures than mine!  Thanks!  The shrinky dinks are really detailed, too!

Does wonderwoman, perhaps, like purple?  Smiley   Great package, darkangelwingz!  I looked at doing earrings similar to those, but then I'd thrown out all of my old Bead and Button issues (one of which had something pretty similar). I like how yours turned out, and that's a good photo! I made a fringed bag 6-7 years ago, and I still remember how time consuming it was to get the fringe to stay in place for a picture (not hard, as such, but finicky).

Wow!  Waiting for a package from England is hard to do!  Here are the great items I received from pinkmichk:
Starting with everything:

In this picture you will find:
A recycled junk-mail collage picture, lovingly framed, too!
A tote with sparkly butterflies sewed on.
A zippered pouch with a very nice zipper pull.
A bracelet with a bottle-cap charm (more pics below).
A MUCH NEEDED tissue cover.
And a very cute pen/pencil/ruler set.  That will be awesome when school starts in 2 weeks. (eeek!!)


And, of course, and ACTION SHOT of the bracelet:


Thanks so much, pinkmichk!!  It was so fun to open up this package.  This swap really had a lot going for it, didn't it!!??  Great job everybody!

Thanks!  I got the pattern for the earrings from an old book I had with lots of fringe earring patterns.  I do have the bead and button issue you are talking about though!
wow, you made a fringe bag?  That must have taken lots of patience!

These are the items BrooklynMermaid made for me...I LOVE them!! Thanks so much

First of all, this wonderful purple box with a butterfly affixed to the front





In the last picture you'll see the cute butterfly hair clip, and wooden painted butterfly with a B on it  Grin

last but not least, some super cute butterfly stickers, and a journal which will now be my notebook to track all my craft swaps!

I received my package today!!! IT'S BEAUTIFUL!  I'll be posting my pictures in a little while once I get them all uploaded!  PICTURES!
The whole thing:


Close up of one of my red, white, and blue American University butterflies: ( Grin)


The other one:


And my favorite butterfly, a purple and green one!  (Two of my favorite colors!)


The text says: Yesterday is history, tomorrow's a mystery.  Today is a gift, that's why we call it the present.

This is so beautiful, I can't imagine how much work went into it!  I've already changed my entire dorm decorating plan to center around how gorgeous this is!

I'm sorry the pictures are so bad, Craftster wouldn't take my camera's photos, only my phone's.

Thanks bmd1011!

so so glad you liked it! That cross stitch kit had been in my craft stockpile for a while, and figured I'd give it a new home. SO happy to see you enjoyed it in the end- and so glad I was able to revive my cross stick love  Grin
