Whoops!  I forgot to mention in my subject line what swap this was for.  Sorry Leslieshappyheart! 
But I have officially sent my package (ok, well, I printed the label - it'll be dropped off at the PO after work when all the work mail goes).  Looking forward to my partner receiving!  Hope she enjoys!

I fully intend on making more of these (and/or the Ninnis).  I want a swarm of bats for Halloween, and think I'm making personalized ones for family for Christmas.  I love how cute they are, and how with one pattern you can make stuff so different.

Don't worry, I figured out which swap you were pm'ing me about!

I am really glad you like these monsters and the ninnis enough to want to make more; I agree that these are great patterns!

I sent Smmarrt her monster today - and I almost goofed up - not debilitating, but . . . I had wrapped the monster in pretty tissue wrap, and then in bubble wrap and then had the card, etc. all ready to go.  Had not sealed the package up yet, as I always check with the post office lady the least-expensive way to ship! I like to save my money for materials and supplies. As I am gathering my keys, cell phone, purse and sunglasses, I keep feeling like I'm missing something. I'm looking around the dining room, and I spot my camera. I forgot to take pictures. Duh!  Tongue   I carefully peel off tape, and cut the tape on the tissue paper so as not to rip it - magic tape is easy to cut from the wrap without damage! Unwrapped all of it, had a photo shoot, geeze!! Then wrap everything up again and tape it. THEN, I realize I have left out an item that I put on the ironing board after the photo shoot, but before wrapping up everything at the table. Unwrap again, second time, everything still not damaged, I can still reuse tissue wrap - I think I could have run it through the wash and it was so taped it would have been okay - HA!  Grin  One more time of repackaging after I do a thorough search of the room, table, ironing board, top of my head, under the chair. By now, I'm exhausted - I need a nap - NOT REALLY, and I was able to get to the post office to mail, and home again before the afternoon traffic. Geemaneese!! SO, here's a little peek for my partner on what is headed her way -



Can't wait until you get it, Smmarrt!! Guaranteed to get to you by Saturday, but post office lady said might be there Friday!

Now, I'm going to go make a checklist for each swap, what to do before sending, like . . . oh, I don't know . . .  things like, TAKE PHOTOS BEFORE WRAPPING!   Cool
