I received my package from silentblair this morning!  Grin

Here's what was inside...

The entire package, with a card that has my name spelled out in Lego bricks!


An awesome minifig fabric notebook cover


A crocheted brick pouch (which I think I'll be keeping my phone in to stop it getting scratched, as it's the perfect size. Apologies for the rubbish photo of this, something must be up with the lighting in my room as my camera refused to pick up the red colour properly), and a zip-up wallet/purse made from baseboards


Some amazing jewellery - a bangle, a ring and a charm bracelet


A minifig-sized Snuggie!  Cheesy


Some minifig crayons, a minifig-sized 4th Doctor scarf, and some tweezers (I mentioned in my questionnaire that I'd had an incident involving some Lego getting stuck up my nose when I was little - the tweezers are in case such an unfortunate occurrence happens again Tongue)


3 brick gift bags, and 2 minifig masks (definitely dressing up as a minifig for Halloween now!)


And the non-crafted goodies - a fabric book cover, brick erasers, and pencils


Plus what is quite possible the most amazing thing ever - it may just look like a large minifig, but pull his head off and it's actually a pen!



Thank you so much silentblair! You've been an awesome partner, you've really spoiled me and I love everything!

You are MOST welcome!
I had so much fun crafting for you.

About that red pouch...
I had started that crocheted Lego afghan on Pinterest a million years ago and never quite finished it (I didn't even come close  Shocked). Those are 2 of the pieces from my attempt. I am crazy thrilled it fits your phone! I just didn't want the jewelry items to be loose in the yellow lego bag.

The zipper pouch was my first attempt at anything like this. I have a friend who makes cassette tape wallets very similar and she gave me some pointers. There are quite a few glue and wonky spots on it, but I think you won't mind.  Wink

Happy to be of crafting service to m'lady (dramatically bows)

I received a while back, but unfortunately, my family tore through my goodies before I could snap a picture. I did get a nifty little lego-head tote, and my kid got a journal, some hair things, a tiny mystery lego figurine, a lego head jar and more! we were super pleased!

The mail carriers must have been in touch with each other because I just got Texscrapper's package today to!  Was a great break with being on entertainment duty from our third day home from school.  Two out of the five schools still are without power and there are a few lines down across the some streets.  We had no issues with our house or even our street so that's great news.  But my phone isn't connecting so pictures are going to be delayed a bit. 
Texscrapper send us a flap over bag with a lego mini figure on it, some lego notecards and an I Spy game that holds legos in it hidden within plastic pellets and game cards that tell you what to look for.  Mighty awesome if you ask me!
Thanks again and I hope you feel better!  Great swap and thanks for hosting it!

Cross your fingers that this works.....



Woohoo! That was the awesome bag with mini figure (that was programmed on a machine, right?)


The note cards



This is the I Spy game

And the cards that go with it... So awesome!

This was so fun... I can't wait for round 2 Smiley

I received from the utterly fantastic IzzyBee yesterday!
I LOVE the stuffing out of everything, THANK YOU!!!



My package of Lego Love came at such a good time as I've had an awful long week.
It made me so happy as I don't think it's even possible to stay crabby when handling Lego and thoughtfully crafted Lego goods.

Izzy made some cool bracelets and hair bands (the daughter and I are going to have to share!)


A Ninjago Jay journal (which the son has not seen yet, or I wouldn't have a prayer in keeping for myself)!


A coffee mug and minifig coaster (there will be NO sharing of these! MINE!)


And some needed minifigs! I love that pink spacewoman!

And wasn't I surprised at the special edition OLYMPIC MINIFIGS!!!

As I was partnered with the great IzzyBee and she hails from England, I half kiddingly made a joke that if she's by chance sitting on any duplicates of the Olympic guys...to feel free to send them along.
I never expected to get any! I am beyond touched! They will be going in a place of honor in my collection. I sent a pic to my friend who also collects and it took all I had not to type "neener neener"!

Thanks again, IzzyBee.
I am so thrilled with everything!!!

I'm so glad you like everything!  Cheesy

And I'm glad the mug made it to you in one piece... the package ended up being more bubble wrap than crafted items I think, just so I could be as sure as possible that it would make it across the Atlantic intact!

Were the Olympic minifigs not available in the US? Even though they say Team GB, for some reason I assumed that would would be able to buy them in the US, because I don't think I've heard of anything you can buy here in the UK that you can't buy in the US!

If the Olympic ones were available, they weren't in any stores around here.  Shocked
I saw them on places like ebay (which I have been staying away from otherwise I'd be up to my neck in minifigs  Grin).
So this makes them all the more special!
My knit night friends especially like the speedo swimmer man.
He's got killer abs.  Wink

My son had so much fun wrapping up those surprise balls for your sons Smiley  And I didn't want to leave you totally out of the picture so I had to make that coffee cozy for you (and in such a nice wake up color Smiley
Thanks again for hosting such a great swap!

I love the little mini-fig crayons!  Did you guys have to make the mold for them, or did you buy it?

I bought mine at the Lego Store in the Mall of America.
I've also seen them on Amazon.com and ebay.
Ended up buying 2 because I knew I'd need some cool ice cubes in addition to cool crayons!

Just received from crazyda79.
I couldn't decide what I liked best. The travel box is awesome. What a great idea. I really like the little wall art. I love that she stamped the background with legos. The sign is great. It should almost go on my front door, lol.
Thank you so much Crazyda79 for my whole package, I love it.

Great package crazyda79!!!
I think the travel box is a genius idea. The one time I took some legos for the son to the coffee shop, I spent most of the time picking up fallen bricks.
