Organizer note:

Sorry ladies! I'm going out on a business trip until Friday so I won't be able to update people's status until then. So sorry, but life got ahead of me this week.

Apologies!

I love my package from Antidigger.

I often soak flour in yoghurt to make baked goods more digestible, make kefir or Kombucha and the bowl covers are just what I needed. It enables the contents to breathe and keeps insects out.

I am yet to try the unpaper towels as I don't want to mess them up LOL. But I am planning a big clean of the kitchen tiles and counters soon so they will come in very handy.

And the recycled notebook is great - lots of different recycled papers inside.

I had an absolutely awesome partner!

Ohh!! Did the owl fall off? Sad He was part of the necklace. I knew I should have found a double-wrapped link to attach it. The crocheted flowers can be used for coasters, or as dish scrubbies. Depends which you need more, but I used mine for scrubbies.

I didn't take a pic of the book. It's "The Green Collar Economy" by Van Jones. Sounded like it was appropriate for the swap theme. I bought one for me too but haven't read it yet.

Here are pics:
incense sticks, a "Harmony, Hope, Happiness" sticker, the green bookmark says "Peace" and the other is "stained glass" effect with duct-tape border. Then the 2 coaster/scrubbies.


The coupon organizer, closed:


And open: there are card pockets, pen holder area with pen, another pocket with mini notebook,  and then the coupon organizer section with tabbed divider


There's also a button on the back so she can button it open over the shopping cart if she wants to. I saw coupon organizers on Etsy with that and thought it was interesting.

There was also a wooden bead and gold bead hairclip that kinda matched the wooden bead and owl charm necklace I made. Though sadly it appears I didn't attach the pendant well enough Sad Plus I forgot to get pics of the necklace. It was hard to part with it as I loved how it turned out.

I'm glad you liked the package Rosie

It was fun to knit a set of washcloths and other fun extras
I even designed my first pattern to make a gnome washcloth.



I also made my first plushie, a gnome. My husband says he looks evil but I like him.



I just learned how to knit about 2 months ago.  The washcloths are so soft and pretty  and I'm not sure I want to use them to wash my dishes.  I might keep them and attempt to make a blanket or something.  She loves that gnome!

The gallery is looking fabulous! I'll be posting my neat package from sweatereyes later tonight.

Oh, and I'm drooling over that potato print fabric. Where did that come from?

This somehow got un-bookmarked. I was wondering why I had only seen 1 or 2 packages and then nothing forever. Lol. I received the most amazing package from franknhurter. Be prepared to pin your butts off =)

First, she made this crocheted hair clip holder for my little girl as well as a little hair clip =) The yarn was thrifted from a sweater (I think) and it's got a little sparkle in it.

She also sent two produce bags & three dish scrubbies. The dish scrubbies are perfect and I can never have too many of them! They are also sparkly.
&& The grand finale!! AMAZING grey & white unpaper towels. They are print on one side and white terry on the other. They also have snaps so they can be rolled up like this. There's also a set of 6 wool dryer balls getting lots of use in my dryer right now =) She also made a sparkly kitchen towel holder loop, (yes, I only use the most technical of terms) & sent some yummy almond soap from a local store.


I'm definitely feeling spoiled!! Thanks so much Erin!!

I thought you might feel that way so I did try to include some instructions for how to use them as dryer sheets. If you keep them in fabric softner you can put them in your dryer with each load.
