It's a long story.

As promised here are pictures of what StickerChic sent me:


Adorable cards (the snowman one is her note to me but I am totally stealing the front and reusing it. It's too cute!) and magnets. Sticker is so talented at papercrafting. The flower card at the front of the row is simply stunning. So elegant. The colors don't show well here. Crummy winter light.


A lovely zipper pouch (so handy), a flamingo composition book cover with composition book (I love flamingos!) and mittens with holly (I love holly!). The zipper pouch is much brighter than in the picture, the mittens are a rich purple and the flamingo background is dark brown. Sorry about that.


Check out this pillow! How awesome is this? Here the colors are much truer to life. Holy wow, Sticker, this must have taken forever to stuff. Funny side story: When I was opening the box all this goodness came in the pillow started reflating. I couldn't see what is was and I started fearing an animal had somehow gotten into the box. The pillow was a much nicer surprise. Way nicer  Grin It's so cool!

Thank you Sticker!

Still cracking me up!! Cheesy

And if anyone remembers the "_____ with a _______" from earlier in this thread, it was the 'pouch with a zipper' haha! My first ever zipper attempt-Woohoo! Cheesy


And maybe these show the colors a tad better?



So glad you like everything C!!!

Thanks for posting better pics, Sticker! I just did a photo shoot in the kitchen which turned out better. Filing that trick away for the next time.

Thank you again for everything!

Whoops, I hadn't made it out here to the gallery yet. I have been missing out!

I was lucky enough to have two partners and received from one yesterday and the other today! It is like Christmas came early!

Let's start with Luckdragon since her package got here yesterday.
She made me the most beautiful table runner!!! Absolutely perfect for me!



I don't think you can make it out in this picture, but she stamped a pendant with "You can't take the sky from me" from Firefly, did a beautiful embroidered clutch for my younger daughter who is wolf crazed (I really need a new camera - that is a gorgeous wolf on the clutch). The slippers are lovely and fit perfectly!


I love the embroidered hip belt with pouch!!! I have wanted one for ages but never imagined it would be so lovely!


Our daughters did a little side swap (They are 13 & 14). My Franki is happy as can be with her gifts! She wore the gloves to school today and said everyone was incredibly jealous. (The gift tags aren't really supposed to be in Franki's pics, but I realized i had left them out of my pics)



One last picture to show the little hat ornament better and the amazing embroidery that is actually on knitted leg warmers (I think they are leg warmers?) I made hat ornaments off the exact same link Luckdragon had on her pinterest, but she used much better methods than the tutorial was suggesting.


Thank you Luckdragon!!! Your talent and thoughtfulness are truly amazing and very much appreciated!

Here is the second package I received in the last 2 days, this one from the very talented, and also very new special_occasion! Trust me folks, you want to swap with and get to know this woman! She went a little above and beyond what we had said we would do  Cheesy (1 small, 1 medium, 1 large)

Lets start with 3 necklaces (Don't you love the way they are displayed?) I think my favorite is the tiny bulb filled with seed beads but then again, the dark blue cord on the button necklace is very much my style


Next up are 2 beautiful barrettes. I keep my hair clipped back in a barrette about 95% of the time (the other 5% being when I stick it in a sloppy pony tail or bun) These are perfect!


Finally, there is this collection of little lovelies. The button bracelet came a little loose off the card in shipping in case anyone is seeing strings - they are not strings hanging off the bracelet Cheesy It is beautifully made!


Thank you special_occasion! I hope to get partnered with you again!

Everything is gorgeous - you are all super talented and clever. I especially love that flamingo and the button bracelet, and of course having swapped with luckdragon before, I know that everything she makes is awesome Smiley

I'm so glad you, Franki and Tori like everything.  It was all really fun to make!

I just realized I didn't get a picture of the tablerunner, but here are a couple of other pictures of the spats/legwarmers, ornaments, the wolf embroidery and the hip belt. 







The spats were from an urbanthreads tutorial and you can see how they are worn here: http://www.urbanthreads.com/pages?id=737

Also, the Alice in Wonderland book is actually a book safe. 

Thanks for swapping Averia!
