 Grin  I've recieved from IssikahJai!  Grin  (I actually received on Thursday, but I'm sick and life obligations kinda got in the way, well, but....I'm here posting now!  Roll Eyes)

I'm unable to take and post photos, but I WILL post a wonderfully descriptive description of each and every item!  Wink  So here goes:

-Two items that were supposed to be chair covers for the back of two of my yuckky and old kitchen chairs.  Unfortunately, they are too small...BUT...they will make GREAT pillowcases!   Grin  They are both made in a patchwork style, using fabrics that both DH and I LOVE!  (Bugs for DH and ice cream for me!)

-A very well made and totally unexpected set of six placemats!!!!  These are also done in a patchwork style (I hope I'm using the correct term.), with different types of fabrics.  Here's a listing of the fabric themes from the fronts of the placemats:  exotic fish with cute fish, flowers and princesses (for my 8 yo), horses and batik (for my 10 yo), cupcake with different color fabrics (for ME!  Wink), bug fabric and stripes (for DH), and a nifty cactus print.

-A "hoopla" of the "See no evil, speak no evil, see no evil" three tree frogs!  It's so funny!  I actually purchased this embroidery set a million years ago at AC Moore, b/c I liked the theme, but embroidery just isn't my thing, so it never got done.  But now I have it!!!!!!!!!!  IJ also looped a lime green ribbon thru the top to hang it from.  It's going to go on my bedroom wall, above my headboard.

-Two skeins of the 'Impeccable' yarn brand...one lime green and one varigated with pinks/white/lime green.  I trade often with another craftster who LOVES these exact colors...I know exactly where and when this yarn will be used!

-A 'Three Keychain Pouches:  A Felting Kit'!  I was so excited to see this little kit, and even more excited to see that it made three keychain pouches!  I can't wait till I get some time to try this out!

-A matching very fancy blue/silver/white GLITTERY journal and pen set!

-Two votive candles that smell DELICIOUS!  Bamboo and Lily, and Melon Strawberry.

-A VERY UNIQUE TOL pendant on a necklace...made with seed beads...green, and then all the colors of the rainbow on a silver tree with a silver chain.  VERY WELL DONE and greatly loved!

-SHELLS AND SEA GLASS from where IJ lives!  I love the beach and all that it has to offer and these nifty beach items made the box they came in smell like summer!

-A very unusual, interesting handmade card to go with everything!


THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU IJ.... Grin Grin[/color]

The inside of the fabulous travel bag. Ive wanted one for ages and how can you go wrong with muppet fabric. And she sent me all the extra muppet fabric  Grin

The amazing vintage pattern shadow box. Ive recived 3 of these based on this pin http://m.pinterest.com/pin/102456960242255358/, they are all different and I love them all.

Awesome bag and great muppet fabric. Lucky you, scarlet_nights, getting a Sevs bag. She makes great bags (I got one from her in a previous swap, and it's one of my favorite bags).

I took a million and two pics.  Unfortunately, they are not of professional quality, which is what my package from nessnbel deserves!  Let's get started:

          

Whoa!!!!  Here's the list to go with the pictures!  
All wrapped up!
Fabric odds and ends to match my kitchen color scheme (and the gorgeous placemats I received)
Adorable crocheted gnome!
Corner page bookmarks with quotable quotes from some of my favorite authors such as Roald Dahl and Anna Sewell
A cute magnet set
A nifty tape measure with lanyard
Cutest birdie brooch
Pink floral pouch, nicely edged with satin stitching, scalloped flap and snap closure
Cupcake and floral pincushion -- the top comes off and the bottom makes a great thread storage area
bumper sticker and handmade cards
tawashi crocheted from tuille
THE PLACEMATS -- completely gorgeous!
A journal -- blank and unlined pages -- my favorite!  I love the bird and the words nessnbel chose to embellish the cover
A bookmark with with cute charms that say "jy", "harmony", "love", and "imagine"
Sandalwood Nut Oil -- smells divine
A 2013 calendar with pics of the area of Australia where nessnbel lives!

This is a super package!  Thanks so much, partner!  You rock!

And thanks, Sevs, for being a great organizer!
