Wow!  I am super excited about my first real (non-ATC) swap, and I got this wonderful box full of fun from ironic:



It was a medium-sized box, and the amount of stuff that will fit into one is pretty astounding...

A few close-ups...

She really went to town on my theme "Moon on String" theme, which I love...




Love this tiny tiny canvas!

Also, for "fairy tales" theme...

I love this!  I don't sew too much, but it really inspires me!

A lovely sea creature drawing, a headband made by cleanfeelin, a beanie baby (whoa 1997! ), a sewn jellyfish zipper bag (which is already being put to great use holding embroidery threads), teeny sea charms...


Another lovely canvas for my moon theme, a "book" (more in a second), and a beautiful OM hoop made by Sinellia...


The book actually opens to store treasures inside!


And this great sea creature scarf made by grasshopper:  (I think it's a manatee!)


Wow!  Thank you, ironic.  This was a fun first swap!

Hokay! So, since ironic hasn't posted this yet, and she's received a while ago, I'm going to go ahead and post it, since for once, I am NOT having uploading trouble (my my, it happens a lot for me... darn computer)

I went along with a bunch of her themes, so it was more of a "variety box" than a "theme box"...
The main theme I latched on to was "new apartment," and I immediately thought of bathroom stuff...

a toothbrush holder/cup (which can double as just a pen holder, one thing that is a very important tool in my life!)

It also ties in her jellyfish theme....
and going along the lines of jellyfish, the next step was shower rings!

I've never had fun shower rings, but I may have always secretly wanted them.....

Next up, I'm always looking for little containers, etc. to put little homeless things in (at least until I can find their real home)
I decorated a little box; the top is a photograph I took on Kauai (Black and white photography theme):

Sorry the picture isn't great... glare....

And I do enjoy little boxes, so I made this one too (for her 'Humpback Whales' Theme):

I really like how this one turned out!

I threw this in for biking theme:

A little recycled notebook I decorated.

And then little things to fit inside all these other things:

bottlecap magnets-- ironic had seen some in my etsy store and mentioned them Smiley

A beaded necklace for "turquoise"


And another for turquoise[ish] (it's hard to see the glitter flowers in the bottle)


Some homemade plastic buttons:

Touching again on Jellyfish, and briefly on Owls themes...

and a felted earth necklace:

Ironic had seen some of these little guys I used in a different project last year!

I also sent a decorated plastic mug, but forgot to get a picture of it!
