aww--the wait is the worst part...especially if it is your first swap...I still get swap anxiety after all these years...it just means you want your partner to get your package and be happy! Cheesy  Hang in there!

Courtney honestly don't fret, your package will arrive and I will love it guaranteed! I ordered a stamp from the US (received it a couple of weeks ago) and from the send date to when it arrived it took almost exactly a month.

Yep, snails are racing the postal service and winning.

Sometimes, it takes 4 to 6 weeks for swap packages to arrive...there's no reason to fret Smiley  Courtney, I'm excited to see what you made for Jess though!  The teaser picture you posted was interesting!

Thank you Courtney  Grin

I am so relieved! I've been sweating bullets over whether or not it would get to you and also how well everything would settle! I'm glad you like it and can't wait for pictures!

- prepare yourself for a few pictures -

I received my swap package from Courtneykilledit and she's got crafty talent to spare.

So much to spare in fact that she's passed some on to her daughter who did this self portrait:



If she looks like that she is the cutest kid in the WORLD.

Courtney can draw too, don't think this little pic on the lovely letter she sent me escaped my attention:



She made me this trivet from recycled fabric becuase she knew that I have a soft spot for recycled crafts (it would have taken ages, I really appreciate it)



This hat made from wool and skill



and these hair clips (which could also be clipped onto the hat or a bag or a headband or about a billion other things as I've discovered)



and here's everything together because, well, why not?



As you can see I was motivated enough to use fabric for a background but not motivated enough to iron it first, but thankfully everyones eyes are distracted by courtneykilledit's clever creations!

Thank you so much for making my first swap a wonderful one!

I'm glad you like it! I was worried about everything, the trivet especially, since fabric that thick is an absolute beast to iron. I also was concerned the hat was too small or big. I'm glad you tried clipping the clips to the hat, because I actually did that too. Smiley And she does look like that, except her hair doesn't stick straight up, usually.
