I received a fabulous package from Averia over the weekend.  She claimed me for travel games for my kids.  Her kids actually crafted for my kids and they did an AWESOME job!

Landon received this really cool altered Altoids tin game box


Adia got an Altoid tin art box and a book of puzzles & games.  What a neat idea to put the games in a card holder! 
 

Then Averia also made something for each of the kids.  She had made a bacteria shirt for atsuko a while back that I pinned and she made one for each of the kids!

They loved them and wore them that day!

Thank you so much!!!!

Posting pics of the goodies I sentbabalina58 a few weeks ago - I haven't "seen" her, so I figured she is super busy!

Ruffled Table runner





And a set of 6 reversable placemats



I also sent some kitchen towels, butI forgot to snap a picture of them before they went into the box. Hopefully babalina will be able to post them when things calm down!

I've received 2 awesome supply packages this round. Sorry I'm late in posting them.

First up from lindyv321, lots of really nice acrylic felt from etsy. I love this brand of acrylic felt much nicer than most store bought kind.



The second package is from nostephot who sent an embroiderers dream box.  Cheesy Lots of embroider hoops, embroidery floss and different types and shades of white fabric.




Thanks so much to both you ladies!  Grin

I am horribly late posting pictures - again. It is obviously not a reflection on the amazing package I received from klg_jlg. I can't believe the amount of fabric she fit into this package!

Here's everything spread out on my couch - fabrics, ribbons, lace trim, sewing supplies, tons of stuff!


My favorite fabric of the bunch!


The bag is hand crocheted by a Mayan woman in Guatemala


Thank you klg_jlg!!!

Can't seem to find one that's specifically yours (hrm, I normally take shots of everything) but it's in this style:



The only difference is I did a different ring and bail combo on it (to make it more like the version she had favorited.)

I'm thrilled you love it! Grin

I received an awesome stenciled shirt from redstar today.  I LOVE it!  It has one of my favorite funny Harry Potter sayings on it, I got 99 problems but a snitch ain't one.  Please excuse my wonky phone picture. 


Thank you so much!  I can't wait to wear it!

These pictures from my ipod do not do justice to the amazingness of these shirts from Jillybeans! Please post better pics if you have them.

Yay!  I'm glad you like 'em Averia!  I had fun making them!  Stenciled shirts has to be one of my most favorite crafts to do.  Looks like the firefly shirt fits you!  Yay!  I made a firefly shirt for my husband, so you two can be twinsies!  hehe!  I already have requests from his older brother and cousin for firefly shirts!

And per your request:

Man, I wish!  I did a freezer paper stencil for each.  Time consuming but rewarding.  ^_^  There is some progress shots posted here if anyone is interested:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=411190.msg4856262#msg4856262

Your stencilling skills are amazing jilly!!  I've tried but wow, my back aches at the end and I need much much more practice with my cutting.  Its hard to cut with an exacto.

Thanks!  ^_^  You should try using a swivel exacto.  They go around curves so much nicer than a regular exacto knife without having to lift up your knife and move the paper around.  This is the one I use.  Its nice and you can new blade refills for it.  Plus the blade isn't huge like the exacto.  I've never had issues with cutting myself and I'm normally a person who gets quite a few injuries along the crafting journey.  ^_^

Thanks Breegy!  Yes indeedy!  I use the tullip softe matte fabric paint and apply it with either a cosmetic triangle sponge (good for small areas of paint) or a sea sponge (good for larger areas).

I'm glad you like it all, tex!  I use to make greeting cards all the time, but I haven't made any in a while.  It was nice to get to use my stamps again!  They were feeling left out.

I totally made another set of those super hero pegs as I was making yours for my nephew's birthday in august.  Though I think I'm going to make him more characters.  Some good guys and some bad guys, since I had so much fun making them and was sad when I ran of pegs!

Well, here's what I sent babalina58. She received way back on July 2nd and I sent her a message asking if everything arrived safely but I never heard back. Sad

I claimed her for a upcycled stand to use for her soap by the sink. She wanted baby blue, so I found the perfect baby blue plate and then spray painted a brass candle holder a light almond color. Last, I permanently glued the plate to the base. It took several coats but I loved how it came out.



Because I was afraid that wasn't enough, I also sent along two jewelry items inspired by her pinterest.

Sterling silver earrings with micro-faceted peridot rondelles inspired by this pin


And a bird nest pendant inspired by this pin in sterling silver plated wire:


So I thought it was a very nice package and I hope it arrived safely and that she liked it all. Undecided
