I received from Javede today - what a treat!

First out of the box was this lovely hoop -



It looks like it's the constellation Draco, the dragon. Isn't it beautiful? Apparently the stars glow, too, although I'll have to charge them up and find out!

Then there was this sweet little bag -



 - and this bigger, messenger bag -



Aren't they lovely? Javede said the leaf print reminded her of the umbrella scene in Totoro, and I totally get that. They're both so awesome, I think I'm going to use this for a project bag so I can use it every day Wink

Thank you so much Javede, everything is great! I look forward to you receiving from me, I'm ready to pack up and post! (Maybe even in the box you just sent me, since it's so convenient... hehe)

Yay, I am glad you like your package! I really forgot to write down that it is indeed the Draco constellation, didn't I? I guess I was too excited to have it all ready to ship so early  Roll Eyes
The little bag is a copy of one I made for myself some time ago. I use mine for my smaller crochet or knitting projects as it fits a ball of yarn and not much more. The green fabric was "left-over" from a skirt I sewed, I should learn not to buy too much fabric as I really do not need over 2 meters for a simple A-line skirt  Cool

This is long overdue, I got caught up with finals and such. Here's my amazing package from beccas_song! She got her inspiration straight from my Pinterest boards. Smiley

- panda sleep mask! I got one in another swap but the more, the better. Smiley These really help me sleep since the neighbors across the street keep their side light on and it goes straight through my window and into my face when I lie on my bed. So annoying!
- delicious smelling handmade soap
- AWESOME circuit board wallet
- SUPER CUTE panda camera bag, full of lace (LOVE!), and the spare fabric
- earrings and matching pins. These are SO cool. I have pierced ears and normally don't wear earrings but I HAVE to wear these.


A lovely damask (my favorite print!) clutch/purse:



She also baked me delicious peanut butter chocolate goodies! They're in the fridge right now (the weather is melting HOT right now) so I'll try to get a picture later.

Thank you for everything! Smiley

Everyone prepare to be super jelly. I received today, and I was totally spoiled!

Family of aliens (me in my fuzzy hat, my boyfriend with the awesome beard, and my puppy)

A super detailed bird house, the cruddy picture doesn't show how detailed it is. There is even a teeny tiny button at the end. It's on my wall already!

So there is a crazy awesome owl on a giant paperclip, 2 breath taking bookmarks (I honestly think they'll hang on the wall, they are too pretty to hide inside a book!) a beautiful memopad with sticky notes inside (even the scalloped edges have some sort of dye to them to give it incredible depth).Crazy awesome garden stakes. A beautiful tin that says Brett's Stuff and inside a billion gorgeous tags for me to use in my boutique (I hate making them and I have never made any this beautiful before). A beautiful star that matches my bird house.
A beautifully made greeting card (she left blank for reusing)  And also 2 metro maps that will make great atc fodder.

I cannot thank world of hoardcraft enough. This has been an amazing swap. I hope I hope I am not missing anything. There was so much and I am too excited to play with it!


Edit- I know what I forgot a set of adorable charms that are garden themed! My partner rules.

Side note: panda sleep mask is the shizz good job beccassong

Wow, guys!  These are fantastic crafts!  (Some swap anxiety here, you guys made such awesome packages.)  I love the zombie pin, the panda ear mask, the zodiac hoops, purselets, and that sweet chainmaille!  Cheesy  Hope we'll have more receivers soon!

I just received today, and I'm so excited!  Prepare to be jealous, guys.

The box was stuffed so full, and when I opened it up, this came out first - this awesome fractal throw!

     

It's all in these spacey turquoise shades, and lined in this super adorable throwback polka dot fabric.  It's currently on my lap keeping me toasty!

I also got this spectacular shawl, which is pretty much my new favorite thing ever.  I'm already figuring out what shirts would be best to wear with it (but it's so awesome I could wear a barrel with it.)

     

It reminds me of a stained glass window - like she punched out the glass panes and made a shawl with all the leading!  I love it.

I am super in awe of your yarn skills, peachessunshine!  As far as I know, these were made by MAGIC.  Sheer MAGIC.  Thank you so much!  Cheesy
