I just received my awesome button package from spotnik. When I asked for buttons, I was expecting like, a fair number of standard button-y shaped solid color run of the mill type buttons. What I got was a bajillion regular and funky shaped awesome buttons. The whole kit and kaboodle:


Now I am going to proceed to go a bit overboard with pictures:

Why, I do believe I spy a cinnamon teal card hiding in the corner!


The frog and the robots are two of my favorites


Fancy patterned buttons


Oink!


I love the Cheshire-ish cats in the bottom left:


Thank you so much spotnik! This is a great crafty collection.

What an amazing button package. Gravity isn't the only person spotnik spoiled. Spotnik sent me a spectacular yarn package. I was flabbergasted when I opened it. It is all specialty yarn. I can't get any of it here. 




Thank you so much spotnik!!

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

I got my INCREDIBLE package from PurpleLime yesterday--couldn't post pics til today, but I am sooo thrilled with the package :-D

She claimed me for a tea wallet, but when i opened my package I found not one, not two, but THREE perfectly cute tea wallets in my absolute favorite colors.  Plus, awesome handmade gift bags from magazine pages (which are so cool I would have been happy with just those!) and a Dr. Seuss card and envelope that she also made.  To top it all off, she included **5** different kinds of delicious teas and some gorgeous brocade fabrics for a quilt I'm making.  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU PURPLE LIME!!!!!

On to the pics!

The whole package (I only showed 1 of the lovely bags)


The cute tea wallets!

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

Oh my goodness, I feel so spoiled today!!! I got my package from Swickered and had to squeal about it!! Here is a shot of everything:


Close up of the awesome selection of tea she sent me. I am intrigued by the wonderful smelling ziploc baggie, is this a blend of tea you made?


Cutesie owl fabric that will certainly be put to some magical and special use.


BELLY DANCE STUFF!!! A book on technique that I will most certainly learn something from and a book on costuming that will be a blast and make me the envy of my dance class! Wink


And .... drum roll please....... TA DAAAA!!!! The cutest tea pot EVER!! Complete with two lovely cups to serve it in. (I <3 pottery. It is my first love in crafting art.) Smiley Beautiful blue and beige glaze! (Sorry I can't get a good pic of it right now, my lighting is bad for photographing pottery.



Thank you so very very very much Swickered!!! Cheesy
