I'm so glad you liked your package! You were a great partner too Smiley I had loads of fun planning and making. And if you can believe it, all the fabric came from my (and my mother's) fabric stash! Let me know how those snack bags work, if you use them. I'd love to hear the good, the bad and the ugly. I really impressed myself with my packing job  Grin I was always pretty good at Tetris.

They work good, getting my son used to them is priceless.  Gotta love fabric stash's!

Alright, so I'm finally home when it's sunny out so here is my fabulous package from cinnamon teal!

The whole package together:



And here is a closeup of two of my favorite bows - one's made out of a map and the other out of some awesome paper!  I love how she centered something important (a cupcake and a compass rose) in the center.




A hand-carved stamp AND gift tags made with the stamp!  Aren't these amazing?




I was so excited to see this - homemade deodorant!  I haven't used it yet because I knew if I didn't get a picture first, I'd forget to include it. 



And last, but certainly not least, the awesome bird in a bush art piece!  It's cut out of a map and this is going to be framed and hung in my bedroom!



Thank you SO much, cinnamon teal!  I LOVE it!

Yay! I'm so happy you like everything, Kaz! I had such a mental block on the stamp. I knew I wanted to make you a gift tag stamp but I just couldn't decide what to put on it. I'm so glad that you like it! And I feel very honored that you plan to frame the paper cut and hang it in your room!

Hey gang! I received from illysook yesterday!



She sent me a cute bag, a ribbon flower, a set of wristwarmers (you can only see one in the photo, as my nephew has commandeered the others, they're all the same yarn/pattern), and what I suspect is a 'pattern' to make the ribbon flowers.

Thanks, illysook!

I received my package today from Crescentfresh!

Here is a picture:

You can see two big tea towels, decoupaged photo frame (with Chinese texts), orange dryer balls, handkerchief (green with flowers) and a checkbook cover.  Those towels are my favorite, they look like they will be able to handle big messes! Thank you very much crescentfresh!

Woo  woo ! glad it made it to you safely. I did further research on the dryer balls, and I hope they don't unravel, as they didn't seem to felt as well as I thought they would. If you see a loose end, I'd try to pull it through with a little crochet hook.
Hope you enjoy =)

Hey guys! I sent to illysook a long time ago, but the package is lost. Bummer! So I'm posting what I sent.

She asked for cold weather gear, oatmeal, and catnip toys. I made an afghan, some mittens, a couple of hats and scarves, and a few catnip toys. The extras were a couple of packages of oatmeal, and the catnip left from the toy making (I have a dog).

Sorry, illysook!
