I was wondering what you meant by gobsmacked - I totally get it now! LOL!

Beautiful package, especially love the earrings.

Ooh, more fab items!

How bizarre about finding that journal, it was obviously meant to come to you! Smiley

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

My hands have been properly ironed for not commenting on the gallery until now.

Crocheted hats are just the best, aren't they? Love the gorgeous grey cloche and notecards! The fox painting is adorable with it's book page background. Of course I have love for the HP package, and the scroll journal is genius. (Phizzychick, that's an awesome art desk you've got there.) And more crocheted goodness with the toque! Cute NBC tin and earrings, and what a lucky/baffling find at the thrift shop. This gallery is amazing and I'm about to add to its impressiveness.

rackycoo sent me the best-est package- I asked that she surprise me with whatever she felt like making even though I may have hinted around to getting more Peg Dolls and may have also mentioned being really Irish...and you'll never believe what I got. It's unbelievable. Truly. Oh! Lemme share the pictures and you'll see what I mean!

This was on the top, and she's just the sweetest thing! SO happy that she can join the Peppermint Twins! Love that mask and wee pumpkin.



Then came this, which was a complete surprise, and also had me giddy beyond belief. I coveted hers, and now I have one of my own! It is always dismally dark in my LR so the pics are horrid but maybe we'll get lucky and racky can post her photo? (Hint, hint.)
Terrible front view:









And guess what else was in there?
THIS GUY:



Ha! He's perfect! rackycoo, I don't know how long you've been using paper clay, but this is incredible. Best leprechaun ever. Look at his wee tookus:



And another of his handsome face.



How'd I get so lucky? Thank you for a wonderfully thoughtful package rackycoo, you never cease to amaze me.

I got the cutest set of stuff from EmilyxOrange:



She made me the most amazing utility apron in the cutest fabric ever. I love it. I've worn this thing a lot since I've gotten it. LOVE it. The skinny thing is my sash which is too cute, and at the bottom is a IYP25 patch made just for me. I haven't sewn it to my sash yet, but I'm planning making a TM style bag for my crafting supplies while on the go to sew my craftster badges on, and this will be the first one on my bag!

I sent off her stuff awhile ago, and I think she got it by now(I misplaced the tracking number like a dummy). I always forget to take pictures of thing, but hopefully she'll post them up soon. Anyway, thank you so much Emily! This stuff is amazing and I love everything soooo much!

All the projects are so spectacular! 
I hope your hat fits ok gala_apples!  It was amazing finding that art book when I did!  I would have gotten it for myself anyway but since I was already making you those earrings, the book went along with them so well.  I know you'll love it even more than me!

Your utility apron is darling, linakins!  Do you collect patches?  I love the idea of collecting patches from swaps. 

Pottermouth, you sure scored!  The peg doll is cute cute cute and I'm so glad the leprechaun has it's own thread so the rest of Craftster can enjoy it.  I do love Craftsters who 1. make Halloween stuff year around and 2. are thrilled to receive Halloween stuff year around.   Smiley

I will properly comment the gallery later... But first:

I RECEIVED!! From my partner StickerChic87

We agreed to swap cards and a scrappy item.
So here it is:



A box with the cards, a little box with tiny cards, a nice postcard and quilted coasters.

They deserve more Craftster love! Here is a close up of the box of cards! How awesome to have a BOX of cards! With coordinating envelopes.


They are all so pretty! I'm not sure I will actually send them. Not that I normally send crappy card, but these are just so pretty and special!
If you want to take a closer look, just click them!

A card with hearts:

A birthday card:

A butterfly hello card:

Another cute hello card:

But that's not all! She also added this pretty box with the cutest little thank you cards! With envelopes. And the inside of the envelopes are decorated with coordinating paper! How awesome! It was wrapped with a tag and thread. LOVE it!



They are decorated with a little flower and cute lace. Awww! I love it!

No, not done yet! Here are the scrappy, quilted coasters:



Thanks a lot Sticker!  Kiss You made my day, no you made my week!  Cheesy
I love it all a lot! You spoiled me a lot!

I'll be working on the rest of your package this week, I'll keep you updated!

Sticker is great, isn't she? And so talented too!

Love all the cards! I speak from experience when I say they are very hard to send Smiley

Oh yes, Sticker is great! I wanted to swap with her for a long time now!  Cheesy

I'm not kidding when I say that I'm not sure I will send the cards!  Cheesy So pretty! Okay, so maybe I will send them, but only to the people I know will see how much work and love got in to those cards!   Grin

I better step it up and make her a set of wonderful cards too! (almost done with that)
