Wow! I received today. I was spoil't. Chameleon Hound is pretty awesome.

For Be Electrific Day she sent me a solar powered night light with butterflies on it.


For Inspire Your Heart With Art Day she sent me an amazing tree hoop from my Pinterest (!) and some rocks to inspire me to crochet on them.


For Send a Card to a Friend Day she made a set of notecards with matching envelopes.


And the grand finale, for Tell a Fairytale Day she sent a felt play set. It's double sided and has a pocket in the middle for storing the pieces. One side has a city scene and the other side is a country scene. Alice is already all over it. We are totally going to have to add to this. I've wanted a felt board for a long time. I'm so happy! YEEEE!

Yay! I'm glad the glass didn't break in the mail! I have some nighttime pics I can post as soon as I get my camera/computer worked out. Also, sorry if some of the felt pieces are a little ambiguous... I didn't realize that it might be hard to tell what they are out of context until I made them. Anyway, the brownish blob is a saddle, and the green and orange blobs are for the tree to have summer or fall leaves. And the white triangley bit was supposed to be a beard, but it makes a great shooting star too!

It was grapefruit month, so Onyxnox sent me some tags and cards (and the handcarved stamp in the next picture)


And then it was have a heart day (the tag explains)


And then it was wear red day, and floral pattern day, and I also got two pie charms for pie day.


Thanks onyxnox, I love it all!

I received from gala_apples this week too.

Man, why is it so hard posting and modifying today???
  
The whole shebang


This is in celebration of meat week - though DH would argue that chicken is not real meat Cheesy





This is for Love your Pet day - funnily enough, my grandmother's dog - one of the first pets I remember in the family, was a Scottie dog



For Chocolate Mint day



For Chinese New Years -



Also for Chinese New Years - this is a cool altered puzzle with the different animals represented, and the elements - a lot of fun putting that together!



Thank you Staci - It was a fun package!

Why aren't you guys posting what holidays these are for? I gots to know!

Crazyda, why would you have to wait until everyone receives to start the next month's round? If you do that then there won't be enough time to craft each month!

I do not have to wait for everyone to receive but at the time, I had no swap spots open so I was hoping that if everyone received in this one or at least most everyone had sent and received then I could open a spot.  But as of right now, I have a spot open so I will be opening up March's swap tonight.  I will have sign-ups for a week and sendouts the first of the month.  I know it is short but this is supposed to be a fast turn around swap. Smiley  We will get back on track.

I received last week from OllieOrange... sorry I took so long to take and post pics. The photo frame glass broke and was all over the bottom of the box, and I didn't clean the mess till tonight. Sad Anyhow... the picture is fine!

In no particular order:
     Squirrel Day: a finger towel with a squirrel for my "surrogate daughter's" bathroom. She's squirrel crazy!
     Mind a Broken Heart Day/Month: Needle felted heart and rose quartz in a little bag.
     Read in the Bathtub Day: Bath bombs with rosemary, sunflower oil, and lavender (a partial one is pictured. There's a bag full, but they're crumbly, so I left them out of the pic and in the bag). Also: a decoupaged candle.
     Library Lovers Day: 2 bookmarks and a photo with embroidered travel mark and saying "The World is a Book and those that do not travel read only a page".

I think it's also great that she tied so many items into old world maps and travel (one of my other days was "Peace Corps Day" due to my love of travel and world cultures). Oh yeah... and bonus "you're one in a billion" chocolate bar Smiley

mom2em - love the dr seuss wall art
leighi123 - how cute are those cupcake aprons
ollieorange - love all the crafts using old maps

and here are the wondrous crafts crazyda79 sent to me - I love the odd holidays she picked  Smiley





Firstly - an awesome decoupaged puppy themed photo frame - attempted to get photos with the 2 of them but they absolutely hate having a camera pointed at them. Now if I was offering a liver treat that would be a different story!!

There was also a groundhog day/punxatawny phil mini hoop (Groundhog Day - a movie I watched too many times to count), altered penguin fridge magnet (Penguin Awareness Day), the yummiest looking pistachios (National Pistachio Day) and my very own Once Upon a Time scrapbook/art journal (Tell A Fairytale Day).

Thank-you so much crazyda79 - you made my months!!

I wanted to let you know that March's swap is posted and almost ready for partners if anyone is interested.

I received my awesome package from Jexxican!!

Firstly, she sent me this great yarn inspired by "cow milked while flying in an airplane day":



How cool is that? The colors are inspired by the holiday (b/w for the cow, blue for the sky, fluffy white for the clouds). I have to struggle not to drop all my other projects and start knitting with it!

Secondly, lookit this awesome hoop for Pluto day:



I love it! I can finally start my hoopla wall. Smiley

Thirdly, she sent me this super cute needlebook, which is perfect because I REALLY needed one:



I'm already putting it into use... did I mention how much I needed a needlebook? I can now celebrate "Appreciate a dragon day" every day.  Grin

And finally, she also sent along supplies for guerrilla bird-feeding!


I don't really have a yard to put a bird-feeder in right now, so she sent me pinecones, peanut butter, bird seed, and instructions to get out of the city and go find some birds!

The whole shebang, along with odd holiday calendar pages:



Awesome! Thanks so much, Jexxican!!!

Yay you got it! I'm sorry it was late and you couldn't celebrate all the holidays with it, but I'm glad you seem to like it all. The letters on the Pluto hoop glow in the dark. The needle book has pockets on the inside and was really hard to let go.

I won't be able to join any more swaps for a while but I'm glad this was my last one. It was a good way to say good bye to swapping for now, thanks ChameleonHound and Crazyda!

Holy moly, they DO glow in the dark!!!  Shocked
As soon as I read that, I jumped up and charged the hoop against my bright computer screen. That's so cool!!! I love it!

And speaking of glowy things, here's that picture I promised back at the start of the gallery of the butterfly lamp.


Thanks for a great swap Jexxican - sorry it will be your last for now, but I'm glad I got to swap with you before you go.

And thanks for organizing, crazyda!

Oh yeah, that light is so much brighter than I thought it would be with that little tiny bulb in it. And I'll still be here in C-ster, even organizing the Ongoing Pinterest Swap (if anyone wants to join us, we're here all month every month Wink), so I'm sure I'll see you around. Now I'm gonna go post that yarn as it's own topic, I loved making it!

WOW - haven't dropped in for a while, and kicking myself for missing so many amazing packages!

I especially love the yarn (want to start spindle spinning this year), the dragon needle book (he's SO cute! Smiley ) and the guerilla bird feedin kit Smiley

After quite awhile struggling with snow, anxiety/depression, side effects from med increases, trying to organise a 4th birthday party and DS2 going down with Chicken Pox we finally seem to be coming out the other side and finally managed to take pictures of the wonderful package I received from whenindoubtsew:

for when I read in the bath - an inflatable bath pillow


to help me appreciate dragons:


and inside the lovely pouch were these amazing earrings:

Sorry the image isn't better, but this is the best I could manage with the camera on my phone

This one is really clever - kite flying, polar bear AND art for your heart - 3 in one, and it is wonderful!!



and on opening up:


watercolour pencils, watercolour pad, paint brush and fine-liner pen!! How cool  Cool Had hospital appoint today and took it with me and it was just what I needed while I was waiting  Cheesy

As if that wasn't enough she also sent this

for national weddings month Smiley

Thank you SO much Kylie, LOVE everything you sent!

Thanks for being able to post mini_mum - I totally forgot to take photo's in my rush  Undecided I'm glad you liked the art carrier and that it came in handy. I really enjoyed making it Cheesy. I was a bit sad the earrings were so small - it actually has images of the Pern dragons in there if you can make them out  Tongue  Hope things get a bit easier over the next while!!

OK... For dried bean month... there's a bean picture (supposed to be a Turkish Tile print) in a frame. And a bag of beans with a recipe.

For hot tea month: there is a Tea bookmark (left-over fabric was just perfect to do that with), and a tea wallet with an embroidered tea bag hugging herself. The fabric says "Tea". Inside it shows "Tea" across the top. Plus there are a number of different types of tea. And, I also sent a "Tea" panel of fabric which I'd purchased with an idea in mind but decided not to do.

For "Mend a broken heart day/month" there is a heart mobile. 

And for Sweet Potato month: there is a little cookbook with recipes. It's about half filled with recipes I copied, and the other half has blank cards so she can fill her own recipes.

The little cookbook I found at the dollar store... I love cookbooks so bought extra.
