Ok, ok, Jillybeans!  I liked the first teasers, but now you are driving me crazy!   Grin Cheesy (jk) I am absolutely terrible at waiting!

I think I am going to wrap up your box tomorrow and see if honey can mail it out sooner than Friday.

I am absolutely terrible at waiting!

Me too!  I'm terrible at waiting, and waiting for people to get stuff.  I have such a hard time keeping secrets.  I'm terrible come Christmas time.  My husband generally know everything he is getting because I just can't keep secrets!

I can't wait for your package to get there!  The suspense is killing me!  Get there fast, package!  God speed!

Ah! I can't believe this! I'm super excited for you two to get your packages too... because then you can post pictures and I can get back to crafting, rather than worrying about not sending out early. Tongue

I'm the first one to receive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The box was sitting in front of my door when I got home late last night!!  I had to open it and take photos right away because I was so excited.  Probably should have waited until day for better lighting but couldn't.
KaoticKraftster was soooooooooo good to me!!!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Here's what I saw when I opened the box.  (my cat, Loch, is trying to see too.)

Everything together:
(minus what the cat stole when I wasn't looking!  Don't worry, I've got a picture of him further down.)
I asked for a bag, any kind of bag really.  She made me a lovely tote bag from recycled jeans and this charming fabric that reads "I promise to keep the trees healthy and beautiful!". 
And because I'm spoiled, I also got a matching clutch which I'm thinking of using as a make-up bag. 
Also inside the tote bag was some beautiful tree wall art that Kaotic painted, lovely fabric flowers (I'm toying with the idea of sewing them to my curtain tiebacks!), a creative wall clock also made with recycled jeans and a Herb Albert album(!), a handy recycled blank journal, a whole slew of sweet little cards and more art - a spooky Halloween tree Kaotic drew on a vintage dictionary page!  Fabulous!!
And I love this little candle!  Can you see the tree inside?!
 
And I can't forget the adorable scrappy owl that was tucked into the tote pocket!!
  He was definitely Loch's favorite!   Grin
I'm sorry if there are too many pictures and that they are not better quality.  I have a cheap camera and as I said, I probably should have waited for better light!  I love everything, Kaotic!!!  Thank you so very much!!!!!
Now I have to get back to my own crafts and hope that they live up to the standard you just set!  Eeek! Cheesy

I am so glad that you liked everything (and that your kitty did too:) ) The clutch I made last year, so that was the item sitting around waiting for the right person. Same for the little note cards, except those where probably made closer to 2 or 3 years ago. I kept forgetting I had them. Made completely from scraps.

I am glad you like the record album cover, but I had originally intended for it to be a 3 piece wall art clock thing-a-ma-jig.
(without the clock and the paint isn't dry, but it is the only photo I managed to get of the three pieces together)
But whatever makes you happier!

Sorry for making you put the clock together, I was just really worried that the hands would get bent during shipping.

So glad you like everything, and I know I will love whatever you send Smiley
