Ah!  That is hilarious.  I bet I could do that.  Let me experiment, and maybe we can do a personal swap.  I've loved everything you've made for me in previous swaps.

you're right all the packages lately are AMAZING, but im partial to mine from simplyfussfree! 

it arrived today and contained earrings and a siafu stenciled shirt!



siafu is an african type of ant that i am obsessed with.  well, actually, i love all ants, but siafu and leaf cutters are my most fav.  ok, yes, i'm quirky...one of my kindergarteners bought me an ant candle holder for an end-of-the year present.  her mother said that she insisted that ants were my favorite insect and i said, "yes, they definitely are!"  her mother said she never knew anyone to have a favorite insect before, but im a teacher, so i HAVE to!  erm, anyway, back to the lovely package!



checking out my shirt.  did i tell you i also founded the n.a.a.a.a.?  its the national association for the acceptance and advancement of ants.   Tongue



the back has an ant with hearts near it!  sooooo cute and i love love love the colors she used!  i cant wait to wear this shirt this weekend!!!



the earrings are amazingly gorgeous and JUST my style!!  they are freshwater pearls and crystals on sterling silver.  i am trying to convince my boyfriend to take me out this weekend so i can wear them because they are so fancy.  but then again, i'll wear them no matter where we go!

she is still making my boyfriend a surprise for the unconditional swap, so i have more amazingness from her coming my way.  im thinking i'll be hitting her up for another stenciled shirt soon, because this one is great and i think i'm addicted to them now. 
ok thats it for my super long gushing!  thanks simplyfussfree...you are my latest craftster crush!  Kiss

There are so many talented people on here making stenciled shirts!

I need to learn how to do this - my son has been after me to learn so I can make some shirts for him but my first attempt came out very stiff.  Anyone want to tell me how to do it properly (PM me) or refer me to a good tutorial  Grin

yes!  someone else saw the siafu special!  i love how some of them are really really big and they find prey by carbon dioxide!  if you are truly nerdy there is more info here:

they are deadly, but they also feed on insects and without them farmers would have their crops devastated!

simplyfussfree is becoming known for her stencil work!! What a great way to personalize something!! 

Uh, devilninny, remind me to set up the dining table in the jungle out back when you guys come over for dinner to attract ants...eewwww!  But, I love the shirt and you look terrific in it!

I love purple and turquoise and purple together!!

Excellent swap!
