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.
