Here is the most awesome package I received from WhimsicallyObsessed.  She really hit the nail on the head with everything. 

The D is for "Down the rabbit hole embroidery hoop"...

I love Alice in Wonderland.  This will go perfectly hanging next to an Alice themed wall hanging my daughter made me.  I am going to start a little Alice in Wonderland display.

E is for "Eagle pose travel bag"....

I do yoga and my favorite color is orange.  They have been combined wonderfully into this travel bag.  The painting on this bag is amazing!  Love it!

N is for "Nature inspired necklace"....

The beads are beautiful.  I am planning on wearing it to work tomorrow. 

I is for "I know what I know reusable bag"...

I love this bag!  It is a stenciled Paul Simon!!  He is my favorite music artist.

Here is the back of the bag with lyrics to his "I Know What I Know" song.  Can't say enough how much I love this bag. Smiley

S is for "Sudoku pillow"....

I love sudoku puzzles, so this pillow is a nod to that.  It is adorable and I really like the fabric on the back, too. Smiley

E is for "Evening Angels and Epcot Center magnets"....

Evening Angels is a print by James C. Christensen.  I collect his prints and figurines.  I have Evening Angels hanging in my dining room (WhimsicallyObsessed did not know that). Smiley 
I also love anything Disney.  The magnets are awesome and are on my fridge right now.

This is a picture of the card she sent along with the stamps she carved.  I wish I could do stuff like this!


She made beautiful painted cards of the letters of my name.  Love them!


I love receiving crafts that I can't do.  This package is absolutely amazing!!
Thank you!!

Thank you! Yea the front of it is crochet then sewn to vintage fabric I had that had some of Deece in MN's favorite colors. I put myself into her styles as much as possible!  I am so impressed with the package she sent me that I got today! This has been my best swap! Cheesy Now for my goodies I got from my awesome partner!! My real name is Lodena but I go by Dee or Deedee since I was born I figured it would be easier to spell out Lodena than DeeDee! WAY too many E's haha. Really, I am just blown away by how awesome this package was! It was so me all the colors and little things just perfect! Thank you so much Denise you are awesome lady! Thanks kayrun for giving me an amazing partner!
L is for Link embroidery hoopla! he is just too perfect! I love the expression! the second I opened it up I giggled my face off... well almost anyway haha

O is for Owl stuffie! *Check out the awesome stitching guys!

D is for Domo kun sewing machine cover! I LOOOOOOVE this its fantastic!! I was so excited to see him laying in there!

E is for fox ESSENTIALS bag Cheesy I love that she managed a little bit of foxiness in there hehe! I'm running the Owl and fox swap right now I have a huge thing for woodland creatures ^.^ this is so very perfect the stitching and the fabrics! The leaves at the top and behind the fox is what it is lined with in the inside and the fox part is a pocket!

N is for notebooks! These lovely butterfly notebooks they encourage me to write again Cheesy I used to write all the time in my teens to help me deal with things.. I was never without one.. I have been dabbling a bit with writing again bt its just not the same on the computer.. These are so pretty they need to be written in!

A is for stitched Wall ART- Check out the tiny blocking! Such an uplifting message I love the colors too! And on the back she put up gear and text design paper in homage to my love of steampunk! Cheesy


All finished off with a lovely handmade card! Check out the pretty beads! Its embossed paper too Cheesy

I received an awesome package from sarahelise!!!!  I was super spoiled and love everything!!!! Sarah was spot on with each and every item that she made!

1st up a photo of treats that spell out R O B I N


R....Reeses pieces
O....Organics gummybears
B....Butterfinger
I.....Ice breakers (3 flavors just because Sarah couldn't decide)
N....Nips (pumpkin spice)
The flavors of gummy bears sound so yummy, pomegranate pucker, strawberry smash, and sour apple tart.

In front of the photo you will see a thimble  "Robin" from non other that Batman, too funny they use to call my BF Batman when we first got together!  I also collect thimbles!  Win Win!!!!

Now onto the crafted items:

R is for Reycycled Jar cozies!  My partner asked if there was anything I wanted that she may have made in the past.  It didn't take long for me to respond with a jar cozy!  I never dreamed I would get two.  These are so cute and since I can not crochet knew I could never make.  Sarah uses old jars left from what ever, mustard, pickles, olives etc.  then creates a cozy around it!  I just may have to do a personal swap with her to get more!!!  I love them and the red one is made from variegated yarn.


O is for owl and octopus amignimi!  No way in my life could I do this!  Just no patience, I did get a learn to crochet kit one time in a swap with Lindy, I have all but thrown it against the wall a few times (sorry Lindy)  I am really good at granny squares.  These are so stinkin cut!  My love for owls in a color combo that is so me 2 shades of teal, chocolate brown and pale yellow, with button eyes and then as if this wasn't enough for O Sarah also created this super cute octopus with 8 legs, 2 button eyes, and a bow own it head.  Let me introduce
Screech and Olivia!!


B is for Bevy of Beautiful Butterflies, and yes they are beautiful.  Sarah found these cute insects on my pinterest and flew with the idea.  She has to be a whiz at crochet!  They are an eight sided scallop folded in half and have antennas!  I love all the colors and want to use them on some cuptowels and a TM patch for a project in the making!  Several photos to show a better image of the yarn Sarah used.  The red is variegated the white has a satin sheen thread mixed in and the purple is gorgeous, I love them all!





I is for Ice Cream extravaganza!  Sarah made this super cute mug rug which I have been wishing for some mug rugs and this theme is so cute. She hand embroidered the ice cream cone (vanilla my favorite) and stitched the rest by machine!  I also got a cute ice cream cone note pad and a cup cozy possible knit Huh?? in my most favorite color.  I love the design she used and once again I may have to do another swap with her to get a few more of these!




N is for Notebook cozy which is cupcake themed!   Sarah mentioned that this item gave her the most trouble but I think not!!!  It is made with a removable notepad inside so I can not be afraid to use it up.  Sarah made the cupcake with felt and again hand stitched it on, she also used a metallic thread to hold the icing on.  Too cute and usable to boot!  The inside shows the tablet.



Wow what an awesome partner!  Sarah I love everything and am once again sad that this swap is close to being over!  I love each and every time Kayrun hosts it because it is always so awesome to get a package full of surprises with no set theme. 

Kayrun always does a great job with partnering everyone and we always have a blast!
