So many wonderful things: Bag; shrinky keychain, hairpins, and nametag; marble magnets; donut cards; chocolate shaped lip gloss; dragonfly bookmark and cozy.... and Yale notepad.

Fantastic stuff from Olga. [earth mama diva]







Totally digging the mug with quotes about coffee from Lorelei, the notebook with a list of all the jobs Kirk has, the Miss Patti's purse and the Hep Alien Shirt!! The Lane and Dave goodies were awesome also. Too bad she's married to you know who. What a waste.

I received my awesome swap package from Julie Yesterday.




I think I like the fortune cookies the most... and the fact that they came grom Al's pankcake world is awesome. They are filled with quotes from the show. First one I opened was Luke talking about how kids always have jam hands... hillarious

I very much enjoyed being a part of this swap and love my goodies.

Yay, I received today!  Everything is wonderful!  She made me a "Brazzle frat/bendle schnitz" t-shirt, a luke and lorelai checkbook holder, a beautiful rory/lorelai style black purse, and an adorable yellow Luke's coffee cup change purse!  It's all perfect!  I'm using a lot of exclamation points!!!




(it says "bendle schnitz" on the back Wink )

What a fun swap this was!

Just regular copy paper and Spray on Stencil Adhesive from Michaels, holds it in place so nothing runs... also i dont use as much textile medium as most people do, to keep the paint thicker and to prevent bleading.

oh wow, she did such a good job!  I LOVE the babette shirt, that is great!!  Yay gilmore girls! Smiley

As for the fortune cookies...they're so, so easy.  Cut a circle out of the foam (I use the top of a margarine container to get the size right), fold the circle in half and either staple or hot glue in the middle so you make a kind of little tube.  Then fold the tube so the two sides meet AWAY from the glued part.  Then I put the "fortune" in and string yarn through it and tie.  You can also glue if you don't mind it being a "one time" fortune cookie.

Hope that's clear, I'm not good with explaining these things :-P

Is Dabba still around?  I was wondering if I was going to get a note or something saying whether she liked the stuff i sent?    Undecided I'd sure like to be able to do another swap!

OK...now I am hurt feeling'd

Not only did I not get credit for sending out my swap stuff, but I didn't even feedback either!  Its like I never participated.

I was really proud that I got the stuff out for the swap on time and spent a lot of time working on the items...It would have been nice to get feedback and credit for those.  I don't even mind not getting anything!

Now I'm bummed.

I know dabba has had some personal issues right now so that may be the case - I'll look into it for you guys.

I have to ask the mods about something anyway so I'll bring it up when I do.

Yeah this is craziness.  I am scampering around like carzy trying to find my reciept.

Stupid me I didn't get a DC number for Dabba OR save the PM where she told me she loved the mugs.

*smacks head*

It was chaos and i totally had my husband mail the stuff because I was in the hospital getting my ovarian cyst and appendix out.

But I still mailed my stuff and got it done...but...

I'm worried.   If  could do the swap even after my hospital and surgeries...and Dabba seems to have fallen off the edge of the world...I would feel like such an azz if she was really really ill.
