Prepare yourself for awesomeness but first:
Fiddlegirl8: You are a wild one! Saying something is fragile when it isn't, you're such a rebel  Wink

Ffrogg: The pillow is super neat-looking and comfy too!

Okay, I guess I have kept you in suspense long enough. Here is my super amazing fantastic package from the extraordinary StickerChic87!


First up: the cutest little clutch from a pattern by a lady at a local (to Sticker) quilt shop and several lovely, lovely cards and envelopes.

Next: cover-your-own buttons (I've been meaning to get some more. Thanks, Sticker!), wrapped bobby pins, a gorgeous bookmark, button bracelets and/or anklets (they're long enough for either purpose so I get to choose!) and postcards of Michigan!


Aaaand: a paper basket, a fabric basket (made with some perfectly-up-my-alley fabric) and a peep! A chick peep of course. Love them chick peeps. Besides, who has ever heard a rabbit say peep?

Get ready for even MORE awesomeness:

A fabric book! See the beading on the top blue-ish square? I love beading. The peep is on top of my real name which is embroidered on. Such a sweet touch!

Out of respect to those who have slower internet connections here are thumbnails of the inside pages. Check them out!

It even has a little fabric bookshelf on the top left-hand side!

Bunting! And a needle in case I want to make this a needle book.

Look at the string of jewels on the right!

The back cover.

During crafting time I went to visit a friend in Poland and sent Sticker some pictures (she asked! I'm not a slide-show pusher) Here we have Polish stamps on the cover...

...of a mini photo album...

..with pictures of my trip! Each page is so cutely decorated. Here's a thumbnail of the back cover (the peep is nesting on top of a to-from section on the postcard with the swap name)



Here we have one of favorite items among the rest of my favorite items (i.e. the rest of the package): a fabric zippered envelope pouch! Look at that! Stamps and cancellation and everything.

The other side is complete with stitched envelope flap. And you might recognize the notebook underneath it as one Sticker made me from our first swap together. Love it.

And last but by no means least...

An origami globe garland! As I told Sticker, I have been hoping and hoping someone would make me this because, try as I might, I can't seem to make the folded globes pop open to make the globe shape. I've been trying for YEARS! It's going to go right on the wall above where it's having it's picture taken here: an old steamer trunk turned dresser from a garage sale.

Thanks so, so, so much, StickerChic87! You are the BEST!

Hee, hee it's the identity protection policing peep! I loved being able to use him right away. Thanks again for everything!

I realized I left out the picture meant to go second in my previous post. Here is is:

Oh, wow, Stickerchic- awesome things for your partner - love that fabric book!!

Calabaza - I like being a little wild - reminds me of when I was younger!  I like to tease - since it was a mug rug and not a BIG crafted item by any means, I just wanted to keep susanab in suspense as long as possible, and make her think it was really fancy-smancy.  It makes me laugh out loud to think of her face when she saw the note after unwrapping the first layer! 

Thank you everyone for your kind words-- so nice to hear!!

Also, Ffrogg - what a great package to nooo - I like it all - yummy bath fizzies!

I received my swap package from teachart!!!! We agreed to swap a hoop plus some small extras.

Here are the extras:

Yummy Easter candy ( which I am currently eating for breakfast. What! It's almost Easter- don't judge me  Grin ), a super cute tiny cow, and vintage? yellow place mats that everything was wrapped up in

And finally the piece de resistance- or should I say the CHEESE de resistance!!

Teachart used a bunch of techniques on this piece- needle felting, embroidery and faux batik. I love it so much!! I have a undying love for cheese- I blame it on living in the Dairy State, and this hoop is so bright and fun.

Thank you so much, teachart!!
