Thanks for the compliments Smiley I'm so glad you love the package. The coasters are 4x4 tiles from lowes, I printed the lyrics on computer paper dyed them in tea and rubbed my fingers around the edges to give a vintage look, that had to dry a whole day. The next day I used mod podge to glue the paper to the tile, the third day i put layers of mod podge over the paper to give some protection, and clean spray painf to seal Smiley I made some for my mom and sister using pics and scrapbook paper for Christmas. When i looked at abbeyrds wists I saw something similar and thought well i know how to do those Smiley

that's regular paper? wow! i thought it was like plastic sheets that you can get for printers. very cool! i may have to give it a try someday.

thanks again!  Grin

Woohoo!  I just got my package from my unofficial swap partner, Beunruffled! (However, she has now been a member of Craftster for over 30 days, so she can swap all she wants to --and her future partners are LUCKY, as you will see as you look at what she sent me!)

Here's the whole package:

The morsbag is great--I love the color and design of the fabric.  Suzy says she is very new to sewing, but she did a fantastic job sewing this bag!

I'm freaking out over these fingerless gloves!  I guess it's because I don't knit, so I can't just whip up a pair myself!  I love these so much! Thanks for taking the time to make these for me, Suzy!

You can see the jar of candy in the first picture; look at the cute label she put on the top (perfect for me, because I always have a secret 'stache somewhere in the house!)

She also made me a heating bag made of fleece and filled with rice (just 2 minutes in the microwave, for soothing warmth!), and a set of spring-themed stamped gift tags.

Thanks so much for everything!  This is an all-around fabulous package!  I'm so glad I "influenced" you to join Craftster, and I got to be your first swap partner!  You did a wonderful job of crafting everything with my personal tastes in mind, and I appreciate it so much!

I received from Silentblair Saturday night and the sun finally cooperated today to allow me to take some pictures.

First, the awesome bag with amazing fabric.  I love the blue and old lady flowers, it shall go nicely with my rooster bag Cheesy.  The other side has the striped fabric that is used on the handles. 

Then we have all the extras!  I love the horse picture!  The orange and teal are so vibrant together, they practically vibrate!  It'll look awesome on my craft room wall!  And then there's a mug rug with an ant maze for those moments when I need some distraction while sipping on a cuppa. 

I think this will be coming to work/school with me Wink

And then there's this awesome pinned butterfly!  I study entomology and like having bug things incorporated in my life.  This guy will also be a fantastic addition to my craft room wall. 

Thanks so much Silentblair for being an awesome partner!

ban88: you sent not one, but two amazing bags! And all those extras... Love the coaster/tiles. Thanks for the short tut on that! abbeyrd83, you are a lucky girl!

beunruffled: unofficial or not, you made a GREAT bag! The gloves are so pretty. And also so many extras. Good for you, Leslie, to get so spoiled!

Silentblair: what a good idea to use two different yet matching fabrics to make this bag! But all those neat extras... What else could an entomology student long for?? Great package, unsuperb!

Silentblair, your package is awesome...I love the bag fabric and color.  The horse art is cool, and so is the mug rug...but it's the pinned butterfly that I love the most! That is a really original, fun idea! Just great!
