I am feeling totally spoiled by my swap partner Mary, aka angelofmusic!  She really outdid herself! 

She also included a bunch of yarn and the biggest knitting needles I have ever seen.


Ok, first of all - I am going to steal that music apron! LOVE IT! And if I can't get my hands on the music one, then I'm going after the yellow and teal one! Great job on those!

Second, I'm in agreement that even tho I'm breaking from swapping after the bookmark swap, I would totally do this one again. Smiley And I don't even have my package yet (which I KNOW I will love.) Smiley

Third, thanks for the compliments. I can't take credit for the monster tote. I "borrowed" the idea from here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340056.0  I've had the post bookmarked forever, but I kept waiting to be partnered with someone who had a little boy so I could try it. I was so worried those crayons would melt so I'm glad to see they made it in eight, normal shaped pieces! I got the fabric at Hobby Lobby. It's actually the autism awareness fabric (here's a pic of their cause ribbon with the puzzle pieces: http://www.autism-society.org/site/PageServer?pagename=homepage). Glad you liked everything. I had fun making them. The scrubbie and dishcloths were made on our mission trip since I had 12 hours of riding in a church van and nothing to do but crochet! (Especially when my ipod died.)

I'm intrigued by the M&M teaser. I love M&Ms - eating them of course, and my return labels, checks, and debit card holder are all M&Ms. I even had a green M&M shirt for awhile, so...hmmmm...can't wait to get back home and open my package. Smiley

Thanks, I'm going to have to get myself a laptop because being away from Craftster for days at a time is simply not okay.

And as for the daughter... she'll get hers... eventually Wink


As promised, here are the pics of the wonderful spell-my-name goodies I rec'd from Jessysihk.  

My name is Teresa:

T :  A perfect Tote for my knitting works in progress.  I needed this so badly, and what a great bonus that its just too cute.  It also has a pocket inside!  One of my favorite things about this bag is that it matches my living room furniture perfectly so I don't feel as if I need to hide it in the closet when I'm not working on my project.




e : Embroidered Wall Art in one of my absolute favorite themes... owls!  This is simply gorgeous in real life.  I wish you could see it.  the textures are amazing too, the background fabric is kind of suedey.




r : Really Cute Stitch Markers.  These are made of poly clay and are so adorable.  They represent another favorite of mine... bees!




e : Earrings!  And not just any earrings, I got sushi earrings!



I couldn't manage to get a decent photo of my earrings.  I only took about 30 photos before giving up.  Hopefully, Jessy can post a better one because they are wonderful.

Next Up, s : A Stitch Marker Wallet!  This is such a great idea and its so cute.  You'll notice it matches my tote.  The blanket stitch on this is absolutely perfect!



a : A very pretty Artsy Tin.  One can never have too many boxes, tins, and assorted containers and I love this one.




Wait, there's more!  She also sent these extras:



Thank you so much Jessy!  I love each and every thing.  I hope we're partners in another swap some day.

Finally back from cheer camp (an odd thing for someone who's 8 months pregnant to do, I know) and I have goodies to post!!

A - Attractive Bookmarks

Karen got my love of Hello Kitty so well!!  The one on the left isn't crafted, but the other two are.  I just LOVE ladybugs too.  Bookmarks are awesome because I usually have a ton of books "going" at the same time, and I use receipts as bookmarks, and then I can't find my page and it defeats the purpose Smiley

P - Pink cloth & yarn

I love making dishcloths for others, but I had never made any for myself!  Pink is my favorite color!  (And as I am posting these pics, the mailman delivered another package with yummy alpaca yarn!  Pink too!!)

R -Round soap

Plus 2 other natural soaps.  I looove handmade/natural soaps, especially to use with the babies.

I -Important craft supplies

I just got into mosaics the last few months, so this is grout and some really great cool colored mosaic tiles.  I have the PERFECT project for these too!!

L -Leaf bookmark and pattern

This is so cool, I've never seen anything like it before! It can be a bookmark or a necklace (or a headband!) and it's adjustable with a button.  Thank you for including the pattern, I have a feeling I'll make lots of these for Christmas presents.

Extras

All kinds of Hello Kitty goodness!  And cool tattoo themed buttons!

Thank you for being such a wonderful partner Kayrun!! It was so much fun to craft for you, and I LOVE everything that I got!! Thank you so much!!

Oh, here's a picture of the inside of the accordion book that I made for Kayrun.  This was a project in my Psychology of Art class, where it was suggested that it could be used for the steps of recovery.  I made my mom one with Bible verses in it.  I just left this one blank on the inside:

I'm glad you had a good photo of the earrings.  The detail is just amazing and I hated for everyone to miss that.  I wear a lot of black ( not cool goth black so much as middle age, hide a little weight black) and those earrings will go with everything I own.  They will get plenty of wear.
