You are lovely...and the cowl really flatters you!

Love seeing all the goodies you have been receiving...it is like Christmas morning!

Love the stamps and the darling pencil holders...I must pin those as I think they would make fantastic party favors at children's birthday parties!

Oh my goodness!  I can't see the shark beads close up but they sound awesome!  I hope you got to keep the sharks and got your real order sheep!

I LOVE that cowl!  It's the perfect size and color and just wow!  Pinned Wink

Those mini pencil cases are TOO CUTE!  Not sure if my kids are too old for something like that or not.... Hmmmmm oh well pinning anyway!  I would keep myself!

I received not one but two swap packages yesterday (such a good mail day after a week of my mail not being delivered for some strange reason). Anyway, onto the awesomeness!

From anna.wahnsinn a mini purse. It's the perfect size! And she left it plain so that I can do my own embellishing on it if I wish. I love the fabric she chose - it feels like some repurposed suiting material. She was also super sweet and included some beautiful wooden beads. They remind me of olive wood beads - is that what they are Anna? So gorgeous! Thank you so much!



I also received a supply claim from Alliekat914. I was spoiled! Tons of embroidery floss, sew on snaps, and washi tape! Thank you!! I spent all of last evening winding the floss on bobbins and now my embroidery box is back to full again with the beautiful colors you sent me  Grin

Yay, sheepBlue, I'm so glad you like it! The outside material is wool, and it used to be a scarf. And it's ever so soft, isn't it? Sadly I don't know what type of wood the beads are made from. When I ordered them a few years ago, it only said "wooden beads", made from "wood." Abbeeroad pinned some that looked the same, those were called burlywood.

I love that little purse!!  Good idea to use recycled wool...I have some old suits that would make lovely little bags to embellish...

Ugh, I'm falling so behind on posting pictures, looking at pictures, everything...

I love all the cute washi tape SheepBlue - do you have any plans for what you are going to make?

Looks like you got a nice haul Eszter! please keep in mind I have stamped notecards on my list... ya know if you need something to use all those stamps on. Cheesy You look lovely in the scarf! It looks like Eva picked a gorgeous fabric for it.

The pencil rolls are a great idea and so nicely executed! Anne makes such nice stuff - speaking of which, Hi Lea! I really love seeing pictures posted of our craftster kids.

I received two packages recently... well not so recently really... I'm horribly late for posting pictures.

First up from TiffanyCrow is an adorable little dragon. It makes me so happy when I feel like people 'get' me. He is  colored in my favorite colors and very nicely glazed. I couldn't get a good shot from the front, but the back shot turned out well.




I also received from ActsofCraftiness - she had claimed me for hexies and again, the colors make me so very very happy! She not only sent me a whole lot of hexies, but also extra fabric of each patter and some extra paper pieces!



I think it is time for a name change. I could be "BlueObsession" maybe? naah, sticking with Averia. I mean who cares if spanish speaking computer folks give me strange looks? (uh-oh, you can always tell when I am overtired because I start rambling very oddly)

Thank you ActsofCraftiness & TiffanyCrow! I love my packages!

No plans as of yet, though I've used them before to make some cards so no doubt they'll be used again for that  Cheesy

Averia I'm glad you like her she was a lot of fun to make.

Heres the shot I got of her from the front.




Grab a coffee Funny thing about all the stamps is they were gifted to me by my soon to be mother-in-law to deal with and most of the stamps had doubles so what I sent you was only about half of what she gave me Smiley
