Ok now for the good stuff. I received from ElizabethsMom today, thank you so much! I love my package.

She told me when she went to the post office the items wouldn't fit in the box so I was getting a new space saver bag as well. So here are my items all squished and in my new space saver bag.


I think the best part of space saver bags is when you open them and you get to see everything reinflate. My items reinflated to reveal, pillows! I never thought of pillows when trying to come up with what she could be sending me. There so cool. Is Rocco a bleach stencil? I love the blood splatter effect on the brothers pillow. My Hubby loves the brothers pillow. He was in bed when the mail came so he didn't know I received. He thought I made the pillows and he told me I should keep the brothers one instead of sending cool things to other people. So he was happy when I told him we would be keeping the cool items, lol. 


Back of Rocco's pillow, fancy ruffles! I love them.


Thank you!

Yippie!!! I am so happy you like them! Rocco is a bleach stencil. It's actually the first time I have ever stencilled anything with bleach or paint. So, I did BOTH! I really like the way they turned out too Smiley So excited to receive soon!!!

I've tried bleach stenciling twice and both times they flubed  Undecided

The mail lady said your package should arrive around Sat, so hopefully you'll get it Monday.

I received my package today from lady4feet! The first item I saw...Kinda made me feel like Riverdancing!



The mug (which I am drinking from right now!) is SO COOL! It says "Hey fuck-ass, give me a beer". I am so totally admiring the etching! I have always wanted to learn how to do that!

Next came the coaster, so appropriate that it was the squished kitty coaster! (I forgot to get a good front shot of the kitty but that's also because the contents of the mug are half gone already!) The back says "Is it dead?"





The plaque, which is hanging on my wall already Smiley



And finally, a jewelry box with a necklace made from pounded pennies inside!









I feel so spoiled! Thank you so much for everything!

I'm glad you liked everything! The mug is made with armour etch, a bit expensive but worth the money cause it last for a LOT of projects!

Here are some more pics of the necklace. I'm really happy with how it came out.




I would like a round two but I've sworn off swapping for the rest of the summer  Sad

i know...slow mail, i guess.  i think this is the longest i have had a package take, and it's driving me crazy with swap anxiety because i sent out of country so i don't have a dc#.  i'm so impatient.  Wink
