rubylynns, I feel your 'pain'  Cheesy  Averia and I agreed that we would swap ONE and only ONE item for this swap but that ONE item is labor intensive on both our parts.  After seeing the last package I'm afraid our posts are going to seem ridiculously small but I keep reminding myself that is the nature of this kind of swap.  You and your partner agree on what you are going to swap (or the amount of points you will make) and go with that, which means there will be all sorts of differences in packages........if I remind myself of that enough, I'll not feel bad when we post our one item.

You know what, it's better to stick to what you and your partner agreed upon, and be comfortable with that-IMHO-than to have swap anxiety about what you sent.

Besides, it's hard to measure what is "spoiling" and what is not.  I send a lot, but that's mostly because I crochet to relax, so it's something I do a lot, so most of what I send in my swap packages is crocheted.  It doesn't take me that long, and both myself and the recipient benefit from it.  I also mostly use stash supplies.

Oh its not even the spoiling, its the skill level that some of you guys have.  It can be very intimidating hah.  I wouldn't even begin to know how some of this stuff is made.  I love being in it though.  Hopefully some of this skill will rub off on me!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

I received from StickerChic87 today! Behold the awesome goodness!


First up we have an amazing Abbey Road pillow cover! This seriously rocks and is absolutely perfect for me! I don't know if I ever told Sticker this or if she is just psychic but my entire family has a thing for this album cover. This couldn't be better! AND the mustard, golden yellow is one of my favorite colors!


Holy wow, people, look at these matryoshkas! They are priceless. Look at the faces and the hair! Have you ever seen better hair? I haven't! I have no idea how she got it so perfect. It looks like an embroidery machine did it! No kidding! It is professional quality. And the flowers are just wonderful too! Sticker, these are gorgeous.


My birthday was last week so the ever-thoughtful Sticker sent me a birthday card (also professional-quality and perfectly me). There's a lace hair clippy too with the coolest button center and a coin from the Caymans that has been turned into a magnet! I collect anything from anywhere besides where I live Smiley There're also pamphlets and postcards from Sticker's vacation during this swap (that's a build-your-own Lincoln Memorial one on top! A crafty postcard!) and a travel-themed journal with orange stripes! Does not get more me, folks. Seriously.

And finally we have an item I have been coveting on pinterest for a while now:

A lotus pincushion! I love the shape: so fun to pat and poke at! I didn't think it'd be this much fun but it is! I love it so much.

She even put a button in the middle!

Sticker, if we partner again I'm going to have to put 911 on speed dial because I don't think the old ticker can't take any more near-heart attacks induced by awesome swap packages and I'm only 27! Smiley It's a risk I'm willing to take Cheesy

Thank you so, so much for everything. I love it, adore it and appreciate it all. Thank you!

I love the IYP's because you get to tailor it to you and your partner...

I am also blown away by the variety of things...I love looking and getting great ideas...and I, too, hope that I learn new things!

WOW!  Those screened pieces are gorgeous....

I also love the Beatles cushion...the colors are wonderful...and I also like the lotus pincushion...I collect them and that is one I don't have... (hee hee)
