 Grin  I received from my partner, rlynn, today!  Unfortunately, I can't post photos, so just read my descriptions, and picture in you mind the awesomeness that is my swap package:

-A BIG SMOOSHY PILLOW!!!!  I've been asking for one for several swaps, and rlynn delivered!  It is a rectangular one, with a cover made of striped fabric, and the pillow itself has ORANGE flowers on it!
-A REALLY COOL POCKETBOOK!!!!  I love pocketbooks, and this one is navy blue with an orange, yellow, red, white, and baby blue striped fabric on the outside and for the lining.  She made the strap long enough to fit across my chest which is great, and it has an inside pocket(!) and a nifty button closure(!)!
-FLEECE SUNGLASSES CASE!!! Made with silly frog fabric that made me giggle!
-SIX BOTTLE CAP MAGNETS!!!  Right up my alley!
-AN ORANGE FLOWERED MINI-NOTEBOOK!!!!  I needed one of these!
-A TEA WALLET!!!!  Very stylish in both design and fabric choices, and it's already filled!  Wink
-AN ORANGE CIRCLE PENDANT-On an orange cord...it looks like a huge lifesaver candy!   Cheesy
-A BEAUTIFUL CARD!!!!-It has a print of a bird on it, and I will be framing it and putting it in my craft room, once it is finished.

It is truly a well made, thoughtful, generous swap package, and I can only hope rlynn likes what I sent her even half as much!  THANK YOU RLYNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

alright since missbarbara has received, i will post pictures of what i sent to her. 


i forgot to take a pic of the actual pillow.  i decided to make the pillow out of some orange flowery fabric so that when she removes the cover to wash it, the pillow can still be decorative.


pocketbook


close up of fabric


tea wallet and sunglasses cozy


resin magnets


resin circle pendant (its sitting on a orange flower notebook)

so apparently, one thing i made has gone missing.  Sad  i think it might have either got left outside during my photo shoot or else it got lost at the post office because i can't find it anywhere in my craft cave.  i have enough stash to make it again and its something missbarbara asked for so i am going to remake it and send it out to her.  i won't post pics of it because i want it to be a surprise!

glad you like the goodies i made!!

thanks everyone! 

I love the idea of doing resin magnets and those are super cute!  Where do you get the bottlecaps, Rlynn? 

those in particular are from my husband.  every time he pops open a beer, i save the cap.  every time i find one one the ground i pick it up and bring it home.  but you can buy new, unused ones on etsy and amazon.  or if you have a reuse/recycle arts store they may have tons.  i know when i visited SCRAP here in portland they had a huge container full.
