hey, faeriegirl and everyone--i receieved an awesome tote from the other side of the Atlantic!

here is the tote itself:


what the heck is that peering out at ME  Huh
 Umm, lets close up on the rainbow embroidery swirls first. I love this--so sweet and faeriegirl crafted this on both sides!


Look at this crazy, cool, do I OWN THIS? monster:


It look like faeriegirl really looked at the coolest monsters on my wist, and then just went to town in her own imagination.
Hey, monster, are you ready for your close up?


She also made this wonderful cat pin. I'm wondering HOW? It's thicker than felt. It's so amazingly shaped, isn't it?

Maybe if the monster would let it go, I could find out more, but faeriegirl expect a PM from me because I have questions Cheesy

Please, this is so great I am singing!!
She also sent two Cadbury bars which were rushed to the Emergency Room--ok, the refrigerator--where they are cooling down. Now that I'm up here, separated from them, I am getting a little anxious. I should have hired a guard!

Thank you so much, faeriegirl, for this amazingly great swap package and for such wonderful craftings!

UPDATE:
I must have had a brain burp because I forgot to post a photo of the lovely velvet wristcuff that faeriegirl handsewed!
This first photo shows it close to the real colors which are so rich and fun:


But I also want you to see an action shot because the fit is PERFECTION!


How pretty is that!!
Thank you again, faeriegirl!

JW filled it with this fabric the white fabric is insulation for potholders! I'm so excited, I can't wait to make some... and this fabric

she sent this pincushion which is made from the same fabric as the inside of my bag, a ponytail holder, and a BOTTLE CAP!! It was hard to get a good action shot...

and she sent a big bag of skittles and this hi-chew candy which tastes like cantaloupe... I compared cause we have the real thing in the fridge right now... :-)

Thanks for being a great partner JW!!

When I arrived home from work today I noticed that I had received not only one but two amazing totes!  Grin I feel so lucky! And now, prepare to be jealous because here are the pictures!

These first ones are from CleanFeelin who made this cute tote using beautiful green fabric. Inside of the tote is made of super cute pink fabric.



The flowers on the tote are a brooch that is made of the same fabric as the inside of the bag. Let's take a closer look.



Isn't the brooch beautiful?
The next thing I found was the pot holder that must have taken ages to make.



I also got a nice addition to my ATC collection.  Smiley



And last (but definitely not least) CleanFeelin sent me some candy and yarn.





Then we get to the tote and items that AniMei made for me. First of all here is the tote and you guessed it right, AniMei - I love the fabric! I am crazy about parrots.  Grin



Inside the tote there was a matching change purse with cute little heart buttons.



AniMei had also made this absolutely amazing sorceress!



I fell in love with her the moment I saw her! Here's a closeup, have a look at all the details.



Then I found this beautiful tree of life pendant that I am already wearing.



I also got some maple candy that came from the farmer's market that is oldest in Canada. How cool!



Thank you so much for the wonderful totes and all the great items that you sent to me, ladies! It was wonderful swapping with you and I hope you like the packages even half as much as I love the the ones you sent to me!  Kiss

wow, kitiza, it rained swapping goodnesses on your home today! I love everything that your partners CleanFeelin and AniMei crafted for you Smiley
That flower brooched tote is gorgeous--it's like a dress up tote!! (flower tute! flower tute!) and I really like the ATC a LOT!
The parrot tote is tropically lush and I love the doll and pendant.

Great job everyone Cheesy

I received from littlenutbrownsquirrel last night and ... I was amazingly spoiled!!!

Again, before we proceed, I must mention that I LOVE the movie "The Princess Bride."

And now ... the tote:


Perfect! The little button is a pin that has the Jolly Roger symbol - Dread Pirate Roberts style. It says "As You Wish" underneath it. I love it! The fabric around the little button matches the inside of the tote. I love the fabric choices btw.

Now the fillers!

I love the card! So cute!
*Along the Princess Bride theme, a way cute hand embroidered art piece that says "Have fun stormin' the castle" with a castle on it. It's stretched over a mini canvas. (I have a mini easel I'm going to display it on ... if I can just find it.)
*A purple amigurumi bat! I adore bats and purple is my favorite color! He is absolutely adorable!
*A chunky bracelet. I love this! I love the colors and the fabrics. Awesome.
*A matching pincushion. I have been wanting a super cute pincushion for awhile and this is it! I just love it
*A jar of whimsy. I've never received one of these before and It's so fun!

A close up on the jar of Whimsy

Yes, inside that jar was another jar. So clever! The little jar has some fun stitch markers and some tiny charms which I love. The tiny charms are a little hand that says "handmade", a little heart that says "made with love" and a little sweater with a ball of yarn and knitting needles attached. Sweet! The stitchmarkers are watering can, a cupcake and a mushroom.


Last but definitely not least ... some fabric art from UP!

I love this!!!

Here it is with my Russell Ninni from a previous Susanab & Leslieshappyheart swap.


Everything is perfect! Perfectly tailored to me  Cheesy and so well made. Thank you sooooo much!
