Okay, I have to start this out with a couple apologies... first to my truly awesome partner, onegroovyday for being out of town when this incredible package arrived, & for taking so long to post the awesomeness (I got it Friday), and then an apology to everyone else because this is going to be a total picture overload (although I doubt you'll mind) and once I post this EVERYONE is going to be wisting these items & I wouldn't be surprised if we crash wists.com!
Onegroovyday & I agreed to craft more than the "10 minute" item... how could I resist when the awesome onegroovyday offered to swap more with me?? She did an awesome job of stalking me... I got stuff from my wist & stuff from my OWS list & stuff she knew I'd like!
Okay... I can't put into words how much I LOVE this swap package so I'm just gonna move on to pictures so you all can appreciate the awesomeness:
Here is some fleece scraps used for packing, some felt (ALWAYS useful!) & Ikea fabric (awesome!!):
Some Swiffer covers in adorable fleece:
Really cute barrettes 'cause I'm trying to grow out bangs:
I know.. that's plenty, but we're still getting to the really awesome stuff. Here's some ankles bells for my sons similar to some on my wist, but way cuter! There are actually two pairs of them, but one of my sons was wearing one when I took this picture:
Here's an adorable Dr. Seuss sign - I LOVE it! My son's nursery is "Oh, The Places You'll Go" themed & I love all things Seuss. This is PERFECT! You can't tell how big it is in the picture, but this is a huge 22" x 9" former cabinet door. Onegroovyday claims this is a one hour craft & I'd doubt her, but she's obviously a crafting genius so I guess it's true!
I'm planning a monster themed birthday party for my two sons in a couple weeks & mentioned on OWS that I'd love monster tails or hats because I'd like to give them to each kid to wear at the party & take home as favors. Onegroovyday helped me out by sending FIVE hats & FIVE tails!! I thought I took a picture of all the tails together, but I can't find it, but I do have action shots. Here are the hats:
The hats are different sizes & some of them even fit my son Cooper's enormous head!
My sons could get enough of these hats & tails. They wore them for hours! I can't wait for the party!
Dexter's also wearing ankle bells in this picture:
AND (yes, still more!), a GIGANTIC (seriously this is the biggest I've ever seen & I could literally use it for laundry if I wanted to) fabric coil bowl in orange, my favorite color, with lots of batik fabric, which I also love. It's incredible & it has a beautiful swirl in the front & handles!! I put my son in it so you could truly appreciate the size!Onegroovyday, I can't tell you how much I love everything!! Best swap package EVER! Thanks so much!!
