We have our first craft sender! I'll be honest, I'm working on a couple other swaps and definitely won't be sending out until closer to the send out date...but how fun that we'll have some pen pal crafts to look at a little early! No pressure, other swappers - we've got some time! Smiley

Ceda PMed me what seemed like yesterday, that she mailed out my package, and when I came home this morning from an errand, there was the package from her!  Cool  Yea!

(I can't take or post photos so I will post a description and then PM Ceda and she'll post photos.)

First of all, she packed it with so much tissue paper, I will not have to buy any more for a long, long, time!  Grin

Onto the descriptions:

-Ladybug socks, with the ladybugs being in my favorite color-ORANGE!  Cheesy
-A really nifty black box made out of hard felt with a ladybug on top!
-Inside of the black box was some scrapbooking supplies...SHINY teacher related adhesive shapes and SHINY ladybug adhesive shapes!
-An EPIC headband!  Decorated with what Ceda said were pheasant feathers of different sizes and patterns, with a silver accent on one end.  I can't wait to wear it out to hear the compliments!  It is truly awesome.
-A lavender filled ladybug sachet, that according to all the black spots (buttons) it has, is 10 years old!  Grin
-A bag of lavender from her garden for me to use in any project I choose.  (I keep sniffing the bag and the ladybug today...I have a migraine and even my perscription meds aren't working.  Cry)
-A ladybug mug rug!  It is framed in black fabric, with a blue background with red ladybugs and daisies as the pattern.  Ceda did what I guess is called 'freeform' embroidery on the rug (I am SO not a sewer!  Tongue).  But what the niftiest part is, is that she so neatly hand stitiched a felt ladybug onto one side of it, where the wings are a pocket!  Perfect size for a teabag, spoon, rolled up napkin, etc...  I think it's a great idea!
-Ceda works at Busch Gardens (Such a cool job, right??  Cheesy) and sent me a mini box of scenes from the park...I love it!
-I had asked her for some postcards and she sent a ton!  13 to be exact!  The animal scenes on them are great...some of them are of my DD's favorite animals and she's having an animal themed birthday this weekend, so I will be giving her some from Ceda, of course.
(A nifty thing to note about the postcards, is I think some of them are reproductions of the art that some of the animals did with their paws and paint!  Awesome!)

Your package to me was thoughtful and generous!  Thank you so, so, so, so much!

Here's the package that was waiting for me on Friday from amnesia!!!!!

First up, this cute mushroom brooch!  Love the vintage look to it, the colors are perfect!  I was going to do an action shot but it doesn't exactly go with my pj's!!

Next I love this and will be stealing the idea for some end of the school year gifts and Christmas gifts.  An embellished frame. With buttons, I love buttons!  I love the colors that amnesia used this is headed to work with me for my office!!! The big flower is really red but showing up orange here!


A pouch with a pocket, love the fabric on the pocket it looks pieced but it is really a patchwork, the fun bright colors are so me. I see an owl when I look at it.  The two buttons are it's eyes! I have not decided for sure if this will hold my sunglasses or camera but it will keep one safe in my purse.

and last but not least all pockets must hold something and inside the pocket was this cute owl.


 Looks like my cell phone is getting new jewelry!!!  Woo hoo so cute.   I also got another letter.  Thanks amnesia for such a thoughtful package!  Will be sending you a new letter as soon as time frees up!

Oooo's and Aaaahh's! The lady bug collection's superb! That picture frame is simply beautiful:) The thing I absolutely LOVE about this swap is getting to know someone so much better than in your average swap, and the surprise factor of the crafts, very exciting Smiley
