Prepare to be jealous everyone Cheesy  Quaggy sent me an amazing package! (now I have a bit of swap anxiety...)  I have never had a swap partner that went to the lengths that Quaggy did.  Thank you so so SO much Quaggy :0)

I got it from the mail man and proceeded to open it immediately!



Everything was wrapped in adorable apper and looked like CHristmas in February!

These little heart were scattered everywhere inside and I am holding on to them for future crafting!



The card she made was really impressive.  It was thicker than a deck of cards and had a 3-d effect because of the accordion layers she made! 




She sent me numerous treats! All of them delicious!  I had actually been eyeing those strawberry tic tacs for a few weeks every time I went into the store!  And I love gummy bears <3  And you can't ever go wrong with chocolate!!!




Quaggy made a lot of the items that I thought I might like to have. She really went beyond any expectations I had!   I had asked for a flower for my hair and she made these!  They can be used as a hair clip or a brooch!  An action shot follows!  I love them :0)






Another item I had asked for was a cute girly key chain!  She made this one, with an pretty key on it! It has a heart charm on the bottom that's a bit hard to see, but it adds a nice sparkle to it. Attached are a cute pair of travel scissors.  It's almost too pretty to use!!!



Next,  valentine's themed magnetic note pads!  I am a big maker-of-lists so these are much appreciated.  Sitting on top is a bouquet of lollipops and pencils with amazingly beautiful toppers.  Like crazy, people... these things are gorgeous with all their little beads, bobbles, and buttons!



She also made a little set of kitchen accessories for me!  I love the hardcore girly pink theme!  These are so detailed and intricate with the quilt squares. I am new to quilting of any kind and these blow me away!  They are simply beautiful :0)



Last but not least... A yummy chocolate-scented candle! And a pin/brooch! I absolutely love the pin and will be wearing it a lot. The phrase at the bottom of the card is inspiring and is me to the core!



Everything all together:



Thank you Quaggy for this AMAZING package! For real... I can't thank you enough!   Filled with treats, thoughtfulness, and beauty, this was a wonderful package to receive.  As I said before, I haven't ever had another swap partner that's spoiled me like this and I feel very lucky and blessed. Quaggy's crafting skills are amazing and everything she made is beautiful!

speaking of super spoilers, look at all of the fabulous things that LindyV321 sent me...I was so spoiled.

this was what I saw when I opened the box..these fabulous little heart baubles...We LOVE baubles here...



she sent the most amazing stuff...a load of candy (cannot think why one of these is already empty  Lips sealed) and these two gorgeous fat quarters



and some fabulous jewelry, this is a necklace and matching bracelet and this great cuff with an adorable ice-cream sundae charm..she also sent a great set of winged heart necklace and matching earrings (wearing them at the moment, picture to follow!)


and some gorgeous extras, really cute tissues, an adorable picture frame, an initial necklace and some really glittery clothes pins...I love each and every one of these...and one of my favourite things in this package, these beautiful vintage valentines. We don't really 'do' valentines for anyone only partners, on this side of the world,  but I think I might write a couple of these tonight and send them to my best friends..they would love them too..


and the very best thing of all, this fabulous fabulous shrine. Can you believe that she doesn't make shrines, that this is the first...I love it, it is so well made and just gorgeous. (sorry I cannot work out how to rotate this on laptop)



the card too is lovely, here it is sitting in lonely isolation on my mantlepiece...as I said this package couldn't be more timely since I broke up with my BF yesterday...but at the risk of sounding like I am having a pity party..this will be the only valentine I will get this year so I am so glad it is such a beautiful one..



thank you so much Lindy...I love each and every single thing in this package...

Amazing stuff everyone! We have an overload of Valentine goodies here!

I received from Thimbles71, who spoiled me beyond belief. I am overwhelmed! (I am also posting pics from my iPad for the first time, so I am hoping they work ok!)



Thimbles71 made me two incredible Valentine pillows, valentines with crocheted hearts on them, a heart and an owl keychain, a set of coasters, a beautiful valentine, loads of chocolate, and a hat that actually FITS my gigantic noggin! It is all beautiful and I love it all to bits!

Thank you again Thimbles71!  Kiss

That shrine is cute!

Since Sylvani seems to be having camera problems, I am posting pics of the package I sent to her.

First here is the card

It is a shadow box style card, with a needle felted fox in it, since foxes are her favorite animal

The fox is able to be removed


I made her several pairs of earrings



She also requested hair pins/sticks, which I have never made before so I gave it a try. I also made a beeswax floating heart candle and a needle felted heart.


Finally, here are the treats I sent. Some are ones she really wanted to try that are not available in Germany.
