I understand lovesclutter.  I have had some major disasters with not good crafting paint.  I just discovered the MS paint last fall and I am in love.  But I do have little gold flecks permanently on the carpet, purple and pearl on my shirts, and a few black bits I can't get off of my Mom's utility sink (plastic).  It took days for the paint to wear off my fingers even.  I'm rather sure my angels are still singing it's praise from when I discovered it, and it only keeps getting better Grin

I was feeling important enough today to get out and check the mail, and I was rewarded with my package from KNickertwist!

Here's the whole shabang.  I love the poodle and crown painting.  It is perfect as my little fuzz ball is king as far as I'm concerned.  Then I got a pack of Knickercards, a FAB wish spoon wand, and a gorgeous circlet, which I'm wearing right now.  It makes lovely little tinkling sounds that I like and my Hub can't hear, so he doesn't mind them.  And chocolate coins too!  Since I just found the candy that was supposed to get mailed in Knickertwist's package, I'm feeling a bit sheepish about that Grin

Here's a close up of the wand.  I'm hoping it is for 24 wishes and not 2 or 4...or 2/4ths (or 1/2) a wish Grin  But even 1/2 a wish is better then none Grin

and here's a close up of the beading/buttoning of the circlet.  It's very comfortable.  I forget I'm wearing it till it tinkles and reminds me Grin

Thanks a bunch Knickertwist!  And thanks for the super fun swap Grin

Wow, two more fabulously important packages!  I love the changeable "the dutchess of..." badge - great idea! And the wrestling belt is hilarious!  Like silentblair, I'm also coveting that raygun fabric.

The singlet and the spoon wand are amazing, but I find that I am mostly coveting the knickercards!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

I love, love, love the crafting belt - pure genius and so well executed! That circlet and painting are so cute!

Also, I'm really horrified at the thought of my package taking A MONTH to reach it's destination. Ack! I want it there NOW! *sniffle* Stupid post office. Don't they realize how important Myrdda is?

The circlet is so pretty with the blues and whimsy. I love that it makes a little sound to announce you!
The poodle picture is awesome! It seems my attention has been turned to silhouettes a great deal.
The Knickercards are above cool. I am such an admirer-er. Grin

 That being said...
The spoon wand has really captured my imagination! What a fantastic idea. One thing I collect is measuring tape, and I LOVE to see it on there.

What a wonderful package!!!

Who has two thumbs and just received her awesome swap package today?? THIS GUY!

First, straight from my Pinterest to your peepers - (and please excuse my red fingertips - apparently I need to play guitar to the kids EVERY NIGHT at bedtime now)

And next - a book thong, because, as I was so rightly informed, royalty doesn't use bookmarks - we get jewels and tiaras

And the third - and UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME!! (because in our house, we are all waiting for the Robot From The Future Who Brings Cupcakes [a very bizarre family in-joke]) is my very own ROBOT FROM THE FUTURE!! I'm going to take him to work, because my kids actually fought over who would get MY stuff.

BUT!! ohyouarenevergoingtoBELIEVEthis - a quote so near and dear to my heart (and on my profile) - just need to find a frame for it! sorry for the sideways

TAPESTRY, I LURVES YOU! you were a great partner and totally made me SQUEEEEE! with joy after a crappy day at work!

Unfortunately I was so intent on getting the parcel out to my terribly important partner (and so stressed with poorly babies) that I totally forgot about taking pictures until AFTER I'd posted it Sad

Glad it made it there safely, and that you like the contents of the box.

I finally stole the iphone from hubby to take the terribly important pictures off!! So here is the AWESOME package I received from I Sew Cute!!

An awesome plastic bag with these cool images in it. On the side there were little crowns! Its the perfect size to shove an embroidery project in to take with me!!

A crown bowl! I love this bowl! Its perfect to throw my jewellery in at night! Though I'm pretty tempted to find a use for it on my craft desk!

This awesome bird (in a crown) tin

View of the inside

Which held these awesome treasures! Some awesome shiny crown stickers! And the most awesome eiffel tower necklace! I hope someday to get there to see it in person!!

A shiny pink resin ring! (Cause every Lady needs her bling!)

And finally the most AWESOME thing EVER!!!!

A Ryan Gosling Hey Girl tote bag!! I totally follow the handmade Ryan Gosling on tumblr. (found here:http://handmaderyangosling.tumblr.com/ -they are hilarious!) So this is so perfect for me!!!
