I love starting off a gallery!  Especially when the items received are so darn adorable: 

So, I'm expecting my first baby in November, which meant that stacysews had the lucky task of crafting a Mother and Child package.  She, like me, loves crafting baby things... cause tiny is so darn cute!  Smiley  You'll quickly see my geek showing in this first photo of everything that she sent: 



Yep, I'm a Star Wars nerd.  Lucky kid.   Cheesy  How cute is everything!?  So cute. 

"S" is for Star Wars onesie: 



"A" is for Absorbent Burp Cloths (Another Star Wars goodie and one with Owls!  I love owls, and woodland creatures is one of our many disjointed nursery themes):



"R" is for Rice/Restful Eye Pillow (It's Miss Piggy's Eyes!  Already in the freezer preparing for my daily naps!):



"A" is for A take-along diaper bag (Which I'm ridiculously excited about.  We're using cloth diapers, so a wet-bag has definitely been on my list of "to-buy" items!):



"H" is for Homemade Lip Balm (with it's own little pouch made of really adorable fabric!):



I'm definitely one spoiled mama whose gonna have the most stylin' geek baby ever!  Thanks, Stacy!

My awesome package arrived from Auntiekar!!!  I was so spoiled!  Here is a group shot of the pretty packaging and tags loving the turquoise and red!


First up the letter

R............. is for a recycled cigar box to hold my dearest and nearest memories!
                Auntiekar used my favorite color turquoise and accented it with another favorite red!



O............. is for owly apron and recipe cards to inspire kitchen creativity.
                 I love this fabric and aprons are so useful, the recipe cards are too cute!



B..............Is for Berry of Blossoms to wear in my hair or anywhere!!!!!
                 My favorite is the turquoise one, but I love them all. I will probably wear them as pins!



I................Is for Initialed ornament and mug so no one else can claim!
                  Love me some coffee and the ornament is so cute, it has glitter and curly paper inside.



N...............Is for Nifty necklaces for special days (like every day)!
                  I adore them both, awe my love for dragonflys and owls!!!!!




What a wonderful package!  I was so excited as I opened each letter and will use everything.  The flowers have a clip and a pin on the back so they can be used multiple ways.  I may even get brave and try one in my hair!  I love my new necklaces and will try to comeback with a few added action shots this weekend!  Got me some baking to do and some recipes to write.  Thanks auntiekar for a super and well thoughout package!!!!!

My package from sarahelise arrived this afternoon.... and it is fabulous! Inside were not just items from my pins, but candy (which my kids have claimed) to go with each letter as well:



S = Skully hat (in a fabulous sparkly black and pink yarn) and skittles (she also added some embossed 'S' stickers, too)
T = Tattoo inspired pin (a tattoo heart with 'Crafty' embroidered on it) and a toblerone
A = Alice in Wonderland framed embroidery and Angry Birds Gummies (which my daughter says are the best)
C = Cameo Candle (filled with a wonderful smelling soy) and Caramello
Y = Yummy cupcake garland (not only were they perfectly made, but she added beads for sprinkles) and a York peppermint patty

And of course, what we all love, an action shot. I can't wait for it to get cold so I can wear this outside the house:



Thank you so much for such an awesome and thoughtful package - I love it!

I received from the fabulous houlihan today!...actually it arrived yesterday,  but all I got was a note from the postman as I wasn't home! But I was home early enough today to go and collect it...DD and I had a blast opening it... (Houlihan is such a great person, love getting swap packages from people who I think I would really get on well with in real life..it kinda provides a breath of fresh air from them...that was such an unclear statement..but I am v tired!!  Cool )

So the first. We have names of unequal letters, so she did EdelCha

E-earring ring from a vintage costume earring and L-ladylike gloves for 50s chores..




D-arling fabric...and some gorgeous bits in here..She very cleverly used the fabric to pad out the box...


another E...which is pretty self explainatory..one side is a vintage letter...and it has vintage buttons..how cool is this?




C-haos reducers..these very cool post it notes...also in this shot is A, anagrams bananagrams..which will be a lot of fun to play with DD...and a wonderful extra that has made DD very happy. Mike and ikes jellybeans..



and the last item...and my favourite...this wonderful heart plate..I love the plate and I love the quote and I am delighted that it arrived in one piece!!



thank you so so much houlihan. I have loved this swap and I hope that your package gets to you soon!

Hey Spelling Aficionados!
I wanted to share the package I sent to PearlJam94....



She chose as one of her fave color combos "pink and orange". I've never crafted in those two colors together so I thought I would give it a whirl.
I kind of got hooked!

L. U. A. N. E.

L- an "L" initialed knitted bag


U- Unbelievably cute Rubber Duck Coasters


A- Crocheted Apples Kitchen Towel


N- Never attempted before technique Ribbon Basketweave Pouch


E- Essential Sleepover Hello Kitty Apron


Like I said, I'm kinda digging the colors!
The ribbon basketweave was new crafty ground for me and it was fun!
The Apron was sewn from a valance I found at the thrift store a long time ago. PearlJam94 has some daughters and I figured sleepovers were bound to occur. It's always nice to have an apron for every occasion.  Wink

PearlJam94 let me know she liked everything and that makes me super happy because I liked making it for her!

K- Kitschy sparkly bow, R-Reversible apron, I- Irish Cookies, S-Shoulder Bag, T-Tee shirt, I- Irish tea, N-Needlework Kit


Sorry for the delay in posting this, was doing a Nat'l park tour out west. So good to be home though, and to come home to GOODIES!!!!!!!! Edel and I were so perfectly matched, you can't even imagine.

Here are all the super duper things in my package:


That's the package all nice and wrapped, you can see a little bit of the "I"rish treats behind them Smiley

A tea pouch! I LOVE this! Filled with delicious and wonderful tea, how fun!


Can anyone say, "New Library Tote?" Great fabric.


This apron is reversible, and on the back is this rich green color, which I love, but the printed fabric is too cute! I am so messy aprons are my favorite thing Smiley



I put this headband on the second I saw it, and I only took it off again that day to take the picture. So cute and so comfortable. I swear, it's like she could read my mind!


Okay, if I HAD to pick a favorite, this would be it. This is a sewing kit, with vintage accessories, MADE from vintage fabric. I'm obsessed, especially with the thimble. This was so cool and creative, I'm going to want to make these for everyone this holiday season Smiley


Ah! I love this. Such a cool stencil, I love it, love it, love it.

I'm still in a little bit of shock with how well we were paired, very cool. Awesome swap, really loved it!!!
