i received today! yay! my partner totally spoiled me =) here are the goods:


all packaged up, ready for me to untie =) each item was wrapped in fabric and tied with ribbon, all of which will be put to good use!


unwrapped! i got a slouchy beanie (love! i have been wanting one forever!), an infinity scarf (i believe that's what it's called; also another major want), some dino putty for my son (he's going to be one happy boy after his nap!), a painting featuring a dia de los muertos skull, which will be up on my wall by the end of the day, some bracelets =), and makeup! 2 eyeshadows! was i spoiled or what?!


close up


close up of the bracelets. 2 store bought, 2 handmade. i don't know how many pictures of diy bracelets i have pinned; she did an exellent job!


close up of the painting. so awesome.

okay, so i kept saying "she". that's because my partner didn't come straight out and tell me who she is. she did leave a little hand written clue in each package to help me figure out who it was (awesome idea by the way; i think i'll use the same technique whenever theres another crafty detective swap!) and after doing a little more detective work i think i figure it out! my partner was.........stellato_escuro! am i right?! am i right?! i'm pretty sure. i didn't pm you personally yet cause i wanted to make sure it was you, haha! everything is AWESOME! thanks so, so much. and i wish i had better pics, but my camera was on the verge of dying and wanted to get pics up cause i was so excited. if you have any better, please post, cause everything you created is great!

I received an amazing package! Why don't I show you first and then you can guess who it was? She stalked the crap out of me and nailed everything! Cheesy

Working small to large, the super cool extras! I have been really into my nails lately, and there was silver and gold sparkly polish, nail dotting tools, nail rhinestones, a sweet little journal/book that will be my new purse notebook, a cute postcard from the Santa Ana Zoo, and an amazing quilts themed 2 year planner! Squeeeee! Not pictured: some delicious pecan turtle chocolates that my mom and I scarfed up last night.




Also, a very large pink tomato pincushion...I don't think I've ever seen a pink one before and I was in definite need of a large pincushion!  Also a knit (I can't knit to save a life! Grin) needlebook, I lost my old one, and very clever knee pincushion. It has a loop on the back, and the headband thing goes through it to hold it onto my knee. So clever and I think it will work perfectly.




The needlebook open:




Next up is a really soft cowl in a perfect teal color, and some nice large (I have giant lady hands) fingerless knit gloves in the same soft gray as the needlebook. They fit perfectly and I love the buttons. My arthritic hands say "thank you!" (ha, just realized I don't have nail polish on, I took off the peeling St. Patrick's day polish I had on while at my convention but was too busy to ever paint! Cheesy )






This is a sweet little bag that my partner dyed orange for me and did the best embroidery on! I've been obsessed with dandelion embroidery/fabric lately so am so excited for this! Pinned to it is a cute little pin with the same funny saying as the painted sign. It's pretty "me" Wink






And, last of all, this beautiful yarn wreath with felt flowers. The colors are absolutely perfect and the flowers and leaves are so well made! There is a pearly bead in the center of each flower. Now I just have to make the hard decision of where to hang it!



Any guesses on who sent to me?

Thank you so much, SmileyYogini! I can't stop smiling over my package, you definitely stalked the heck out of me and everything is spot on! Cheesy

My items came wrapped in lovely yellow paper...but my kids were quick to unwrap it so no picture.

Here's what I received!

I just noticed how crummy the picture is. Sorry.

I got a princess bag:

The lining is Tinkerbelle and friends fabric - my little girl just died when she saw it. So cute. (You can see it in the first pic as she sent me some fabric pieces too.)

An amazing and comfy -seriously, these are so soft- hat and infinity scarf/cowl. I love the pattern and color. Smiley

I've been wearing them since I got them. Again, so comfy!

And a Princess Bride needle book! Yay! Here is a close up of the embroidery. Beautiful. Smiley


She also sent some Cinderella cookie cutters. So fun! My kids are begging for cookies.

Thank you Toralune! You are amazing and I love everything!  Grin

You're right! I'm so glad you like everything. I was super worried...as I always am with swaps. Smiley

Everyone is getting awesome packages...not getting a tracking number from a partner is a new test of patience!
