i recieved my package, then went out of town for a few days, and got behind on taking pictures and posting. it's a great package, and I made myself keep it in the box to motivate me to get those photos taken.
 
she makes really cute cut paper cards, and she sent some extra blank cards as well. one of them is going in the mail to an ill friend today.

The crafted item is a shadow box frame similar to one I had on my pinterest. their are polished stones and marbles inside the frame. the picture is watercolors, using a resist medium. you paint it on first, put color over it, then peel it off so the white background shows
.
 it's something I've been wating to try, so she sent me some paper with the resist already on it, ready to be painted. she also did some bookmarks in this technique in all my themes. my kids each nabbed on up as soon as I was done taking pictures. I love the outline of yoda's head 'read books , you must'

on top of all that she sent some awesome supplies from my pinterest wish list. she had sent me a handcarved stamp in a swap last year, and it's something I've been wanting to learn to do. she sent me a knife for carving, and a blank for the base.
I also draw with colored pencils, and love portraits. I've been wanting a wooden model, and she sent me one! and it's wearing harry potters glasses. Smiley
dinkime, thank you for such a thoughtful package, I really love it. you spoiled me!

Wow, awesome package!  I love the different cards, and the painted items are so fun!  The supplies are great, too!  I've also wanted to try stamp cutting, and the little wooden model with his Harry Potter glasses is just too cute!

I got my box of goodies from craftADDchick yesterday! Here's what she sent:


A dino mug (our agreed upon extra), a beautiful card and 2 paint-your-own matryoshka sets with gesso! Yes!

And the cutest crafted item in the whole world:




Guinea pigs are the cutest animals in the whole, wide world and she crocheted me one! Isn't it adorable?

Thank you so much, craftADDchick!

I got a sneak peek at that little guy, and squeee, he is just so cute!  Those matryoshka sets are too cool!  I might have to go hunting!  Cheesy  The card looks lovely, too!


The swap is officially finished!  Feel free to keep giving lots of love to all the neat packages, though!  And we might do another round this winter, so stay tuned if you're interested!

jenleahlynn, you got a great bunch of cards and bookmarks (that resist technique is so fun!). And now, I want to go and draw Harry Potter glasses on my mini drawing model!

And, Calabaza, I'm so glad you like your guinea pig! The face just kills me, it's so cute Smiley

LovelyMiss, thank you so much for organizing this swap on top of organizing the games! You rock!

Eeek, sorry my reply here is so late!!

Those are both wonderful thoughtful packages!  How kind of dinkime to send crafts and supplies for things she specifically knew her partner wanted to try!! Smiley 

And that guinea pig is WONDERFUL!!  I have had many guinea pigs as pets, have a guinea pig calendar on my wall, and absolutely love the little beasties - that guinea pig doll is SO SWEET! Smiley

Thanks! When were kids, we were going to get a long-haired Guinea pig and name it "Tribble," but my mom nixed it Sad  Somehow, she let us get a dog, instead!
