Wait to be amazed once again!!!!!!  I put my camera card in my wallet first thing this morning.  Was suppose to get off at 3:00 did not happen till 4:30.. Came home got pictures because I could hardly wait to share the fantastic package that I received from dearbluebird.  I was super spoiled by such a great artist!!!!! Grin Grin Grin

1st up is my new friend Kate!!!!  She was handmade by dearbluebird.  I wish you could hold her and see all the detail better and the way she is put together is superb!!!  From her felt hat to feathers tucked in it, to the gold necklace she is wearing around her neck.  The clothing is so cute and has leaves on her main dress.  The as I call it apron or over skirt is detachable.  The body bends at the knee area so she is poseable!!!   The face is handpainted. She is so darn cute!  This is a craft that dearbluebird loves to do and wanted to include one in my parcel!! Kiss Kiss Kiss Super job and you can tell that this is a craft she is very good at!!!

Dearbluebird also sent me two carved stamps.  A tree limb and an owl.   This was her first attempt at stamp carving and she nailed it!!!  I think she has found a new craft!!  She also included the paper where she tested then prior to sending.  These  are so cute and well done. The picture is blurred so sorry!!!!

Included where some stickers, notecards and ribbon!!  There is another sticker lurking around here somewhere, miss
placed at the moment.  It is of a realistic owl.  I plan to get these decorated and send them along with swap packages I send out.

OK now hold your breath because these hoopla's are going to blow y'all away!!!!! 

1st this cute dearbluebird sitting atop a hooties head with string in it's beak.   I told dearbluebird, what a way to sign  her hoopla.  I will always relate this to her crafter name.

2nd hoopla was inspired from images within my wist.  The coloring of the fabric is awesome. The tree with apples and the border of the tree so neat. The stitching of the owl is awesome!!!

3rd hoopla,  2 hooties in love!  Again she colored the fabric and did her magic with embroider thread!  Not sure how well you can see but her stitches are so darn perfect and the trees are in shades of brown.

 Everytime I look at each I see more detail than the last time. Can you believe I was so spoiled???  I love everything !!!!!  dearbluebird thank you so much for such a wonderful package!!!!  Again I love it all and feel so spoiled!!!!!! Kiss Kiss Kiss

Thanks to How Lovely I have had the absolute best swap experience  Grin. I have been spoiled rotten and I love everything!

Stickers for my little boy, who loves them and made himself a pirate/stegosaurus truck with the stickers already

Wall stickers for my baby girl, I adore these!

Owl bunting for my baby girl - the colours could not be more perfect and their little googly eyes are fantastic  Cheesy
Owl embroidery for my girl too, and a special blue owl stitched brooch for me

Notebook for me and a range of fabulous handcrafted owl cards. I love these, and since I love to send 'real' thank you cards in the post these are wonderful

Jewellery! That necklace is just so perfect, the colours are just right for me and the pendant is gorgeous handmade glass. The earrings are perfect danglies in my favourite colours

THIS bag made me squee! I'm totally taking this to the wedding I am attending in September and I'm going to design my dress around the colours

How Lovely, you totally rock! You deserve the 'Best-ever swap partner' award! THANK YOU  Kiss

turbotinks opened her package last night in her hospital bed! She's home now and feeling better but she asked me to post the pictures. 
First up everything all together!

This is my goofy little owl, this is the first stuffie I've made and hes a little off but I love him! My son named him hide n seek

A little needle book.

A little bag to match

And last but not least a matching set of owl napkins! I hated to part with these. 

Feel better soon and I hoped you loved everything!
