What the heck!
I can't beileve you received the package that fast.

Really quick story about the owl bag:

Originally I designed a cute cartoon looking owl for it.

But when I went through imreallyjustsam's old posts, I saw these wicked awesome plates she made - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83147.0 - and I thought to myself that she could handle more mature (or as one person said, 'mischievous') looking owls.  The new owls were inspired from a 1970s coloring book. 

The bird was sketched from a 1940s stencil book I own (but sadly I didn't have time to add the finishing 1940s touches).
The deer was sketched from Deery Lou, but I changed up a few things.

I am glad you liked your package! 
xoxo

 I just received my swap items (perfectly unharmed during shipping).Wink Thank you soo much Bobolink, everything is so adorable. Bobo knew I liked puppets so she made me these cute little guys as finger puppets (best friends-owl ,skunk, rabbit). The "magical tree" scene also has knitted flowers and tiny mushrooms . She also knitted me a funny lit'l bird and brown bunny and my favorite, because I like things simple and functional an acorn book marker. Thanks so much I can't wait till you get your package.

Wow wow wow!!!
So much going on!!!
So Rattfinkpink- I LOVE your stuff. That deer cuff especially is to DIE FOR!! Smiley
Bumfuzzlerumdum- I am so glad you got my package unharmed. It just looks like the tree can be straightened maybe it looks kind of tilted. Hopefully the little stuffies will work on your stuffies like you asked for- I'd love to see a pic if they do. I'll post some more detailed pics later, bumfuzzler. asked for them 2-4 inches and knitting them that small was tough! I was really proud of how the tree scene came together with the details, hopefully you have a place for it.
AND......
I GOT YOUR PACKAGE!
It was wonderful! So adorable!!! My favorite was the ENORMOUS mushroom! My response as I pulled it out of the box was.. "it's an enormous mushroom!"- I was very excited. It also contained three stuffies a skunk bunny and squirrel- so cute and each holding a little treat and some great leaf magnets. They look so cute sheltering under the mushroom. I can try to get pics, but I have a feeling bumfuzzler. has some so he can post.
Thank you so much!!!!!

Those knitted animals are adorable!  And I love the acorn bookmark a lot.

Not trying to take the shine away from all those goodies -but I wanted to add a photo of the owl bag I made.
I love the lining!  It is tree fabric that I bought a couple years ago (I LOVE trees).


PS. The photos aren't the best because I just snapped a few photos right before boxing up and driving like a maniac to the post office.
