I actually received my stuff last week, but I have had mandatory overtime again this week/weekend and so I am just now posting the pics.  I love everything.  She even sent a treat for my puppy dog Shadow.

There is an awsome jewelery board with hooks for necklaces, ribbon for earrings, and it is cork board behind the pretty paper if I need to improvise.  She made a great retro Atari joystick pin cushion.  Action shot here on my messing sewing machine...

She even sent me a cute blank book which is great because I am a chronic list writer.  I have blank books all over my house with ideas and reminders and this book is super cute.

Best of all I have a new necklace.  I have a nickel allergy, which seemed to throw her for a loop initially, but she made the prettiest necklace with no metal.  There is even a single cute little bird which I tried it get a pic of here.

And here's a blurry pic my husband took of me with it on.

Here's one more pic of everything.

Thank you crassy_mcnasty!!  I am finished with your stuff and I will be on it's way shortly.

demi_kitten, that bag is adorbs- i love the cat silhouette.  And the roll is awesome!  What a great idea, and everything matches too.   In other news, Tarmine, your cat really is a cutie!

roniwink, so glad you like everything!  I'm making myself one of those atari pincushions, my husband didn't know it was a pincushion and wanted one.

So excited for my stuff being sent soon!

And totally addicted to swaps now- this won't be my last for sure.

Wow that stuff is cool. I'm on the boundary between remembering atari and not remembering it, I'm pretty sure my brother had one but I was too young to play.

The earring jewellery holder is great, such a cool idea and the colours are cute.

The necklace is very adorable too, love the little bird.

More fabulous swap packages!  The crochet roll was an excellent idea Demi_Kitten and turned out great!  I really like the Atari pin cushion too!  Of course I am definitely old enough to remember Atari Cheesy

How is everyone else doing?  Send out deadline is only a few more days....

Wonderful package!
I like the Atari pin cushion too, it's a very original idea!
I like the necklace color, and it's a good alternative to the use of metal.

I want to let everyone know that I will be away next week, if you need anything please contact rackycoo.  I will be home until Sunday night, so will update as much as I can before then.  I need to hear from the remaining people who have not sent, either with their dc#/receipt copy or an estimation of when they will be sending.  thanks!

Here it is, everybody!  A package of fabulousness from Carmencrafter arrived for me today!  I will start with opening the box:



What's that on top?  It looks like...



...the world's cutest birdhouse!!  How did you know I like birds and birdhouses?  This is beautifully decorated with different matching papers, and varnished.  Every seam is perfect! 



In this photo you can see the different patterns on the top and side.  And behind it is the cute little pop-up peach card she made!  Now to the next item.  Could it be?  Yes, she made me something from my Etsy favorites:



A tea-mug-shaped pin cushion.  SOOO CUTE!!!



In this second picture you see it from a slightly different angle.  It is covered with beautiful applique and embroidery. I'm going to take this into my sewing room as soon as I'm done here!  And that's not all!  There is MORE applique and embroidery on this next item:



It's a wonderful pouch!  But she didn't send it to me empty, look at this:



It was stuffed full of crafty goodies!  Buttons, pins, thread, beads, glue, glitter, and rings!!  Really, Carmen, you spoiled me!  I love all of it and I am so impressed by the care with which you crafted the details, and how you chose each item and all the colors with my preferences in mind.  What an awesome swap partner!!  Thank you so much for everything!  All your future swap partners will be lucky to get you!
