I have recievedfrom fontiua. She did a greatjob and went with my love of owls.
First is the hand painted bandana!! I love it and the colors:

Next are two owl potholders that totally rock:

And last, but not least, she combined knitting and embroidery to make me this amazing hoopla!! I love it.


Thank you so much Fontiua. You have been an awesome partener.

Oh, I love that chickadee mug-rug, but I would want to hang it on the wall, lol.

Also love the felted blue-bird and those coasters are a great design that I can easily see coming from Crate&Barrel!

Really like those notecards and those etched jars are perfect for holding crafty supplies.

So much birdy goodness. <3

- That fat little blue bird is so cute!

- One of these days I'm going to have to try etching glass. Those jars are pretty awesome. I could totally see them filled up with something colorful.

Those coasters are also pretty fetching.

I was so nervous about the owl design - I must have printed 20 owl silhouettes and photos from Google. In the end, I just free-handed it and I do love how it came out.

So happy that you're happy!

I love the tiny knit bird made by Adrienne Bowers. Charming framed birdies too, Sunflower Smiles. Also love the stationary and etched jars from Ollieorange. I haven't etched glass since 4H camp. I will have to give that another try. And Smmarrt, how did you add the birds to the tin and jar tops. Hey what a great combination that would be: Smmarrt's tops with Ollieoranges' etched jars. Birding journals are a great idea too.

I bought the birds (and some butterflies) from a guy on Etsy:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/porkchopshow?ref=shop_sugg

There are so many fun pieces in his shop that I will be back. I love the etched jars also - I haven't had much luck with etching cream. I may have to try it again!

omw! that shop looks so fun! and the name had me hooked!

Also, did you know that they have a spray paint that looks like etching now? You use stencils with it like you would with regular etching. http://www.tcpglobal.com/SprayPaintDepot/ItemDetail.aspx?ItemNo=KRY+0810&gclid=CM3u0fv2zrECFWYbQgodEToAJA ( Example of the stuff)  seems like it would be easy to do?

I"m in love with all the great stuff that's been crafted! Those cards and owl potholders are awwwwwwweeesommme!  Love the stenciled STAMPED goodies too!

I received from the fabulous dessadoll today - so much birdie goodness packed into a small box. I not only admire your packing skills (and I wish the USPS had boxes this size) but I love the fact that like me, you kept spotting and buying small bird things and adding them to your swap package. So thanks for that!

Lots of photos.



A picture frame, a small notebook (I use these constantly!) and a tag with crows and my name.



Now Brieanna forgot to include a note of the things she made so I'm guessing on some of these. Hand painted wood bird ornament? And a lovely little nest and bird - I may have to add a pinback to this so I can wear it.



A lovely bird mobile with sewn birds! Sorry it's not hanging up yet - there is no where in my apartment to hang this and photograph it without revealing dust, cobwebs or unfinished painted walls. Will try for an action shot tomorrow in the daylight!



3 paper gliders - the Pre-K kids will enjoy these on Monday!



A tote bag in bird fabric that folds up and zips up to a smaller size. PERFECT for me and my next trip.



Tin box with decorated cover that was STUFFED with goodies:



A nceklace, a pin, a magnet, a window sticker (the crow), an air freshener, lip gloss (the owl), 2 mini birds for crafting, a fabric transferand of course, a Canadian patch - which may have to go on my Craftster Scouts sash (whenever I get one) because I have swapped with Canadians many times.

Thanks so much, Brieanna. You crafted so many things and sent so much other stuff that my whole house will be a bird paradise.

And thanks to everyone for a fun swap.
