Awesome! I'm so glad you like it! It's the first time I ever burned box like that, it's just one of those light pine craft store jobbies, but after I stained it I couldn't believe it was the same thing...

The stained glass necklace was the tricky one, I had planned to make two, like a set of dog tags that said 'make it', and 'strong', like how you like your coffee! But it didn't work out  :-[ so I borrowed the images from your wists!

Oh and the towels were done with fabric dye craypas, most awesome serendipitous craft store find!  Hooray! I hope it made your day and you're feeling better!! FEEL GOOD!!!!

Just wanted to share my package I received from chrsdx.

Everything...Potholder, towel, candle, tealight holder, scrapbook cookbook, coffee, and of course the cup.


A couple pages from the scrapbook cookbook.




Thanks so much, I love it all. 


Title: Re: Fill A Mug Swap Round 3 Gallery!
Post by: goodtimegirl on November 05, 2008 07:04:24 PM
Thanks, Kaissa!!



I love everything: a zipper pouch (which has been turned into a pencil case), a teabag holder, a beautiful framed photo (which has two of my favorite novels in it), coffee body scrub, a coffee cozy, and lots of goodies!!

When I get my camera working again, or my husband is feeling nice enough to take pictures for me, I'll post more.

I received a lovely package from laideebugz today!  I was having a horrible week, and an even worse day, and here this package shows up to totally brighten everything up!



She is so spot-on with the fabrics -- I love batik!  Check out the fingertip oven mitts (my daughters, who love to bake, were especially impressed with these!)  She also spoiled me with some cool coasters, a java wrap, a pyramid pouch (which I LOVE) and a beautiful, heavy, TALL mug!  Oh, and a coffee-scented candle (we've burned it some already) and cocoa and apple cider was included.  The little bags she made for my yummy coffees will be filled with some of my crafty supplies when the coffee is gone.  I'm about to enjoy some of that Pumpkin Spice coffee now -- my favorite -- with a biscotti!!!

Thanks, laideebugz, for spoiling me!  :D  I love everything in my package!

Post by: pinklrt on November 06, 2008 12:08:09 PM
Technically my partner hasn't received her package yet (it is out for delivery right now), but it appears that she has gone MIA and deleted her Craftster account. :(  I'm guessing that she won't be posting pictures of what she received, so here they are from me instead. nerdlover indicated that her favorite colors were pink and brown and that she liked polka dots, so this swap package features both.

Everything together:


Mug and fillers:

The bottle is a small bottle of vanilla coffee syrup. I included a few felt-topped wooden stirring sticks and a crocheted mug cozy.

Drink samples:

A few packets of tea in a polka-dotted tea wallet, single-serving hot cocoas, and a half-pound of coffee from one of my favorite Minneapolis coffee shops. I believe the owner gave me his organic Turkish roast, which he roasted himself.

Marble Magnets:

Might be hard to see in the photo, but they spell out coffee, tea and brew.

Coffee Cup Cozy:

Empty Caribou Coffee cup not included.

And finally, some tile coasters:

Thrifted tiles with pink and brown scrapbook paper decoupaged to the top with felt bottoms.

I got my package from when I am sixty four - it really is the very best package I have recieved! She spoiled me rotten and I am so grateful it arrived today! (I was having a bad day)
SO here are the pictures!

Here is everything in a nutshell


All of the amazing YUMMY goodies! I got tea, coffee, scones (which my H and I LOVE!), cocoa, stir honey sticks and spicy Texas mix! See, I told you she spoiled me! :)
Oh, she also crafted a Mr. Tea feltie... he is adorable!



A set of autumn napkins. Look at that embroidery!



Also, she crafted me a sleep mask (very ironic with a newborn  :D), acorn shaped coasters, a coffee sleeve and some hand printed recipe cards - everything is wonderful!



AND there is more!
An AWESOME Halloween hand towel, glitter leaf buttons, a pair of handmade earrings, a bar of cinnamon orange soap (it smells heavenly!) and she also included a Christmas ornament for Jordan :)





This package is Jordan approved!  8)

Closer pictures of the package Kaissa sent me!!

The tea pouch (which I've also used for the mulling spices--I love spiced apple cider in the morning):




The cup cozy (I've gotten so many compliments on this!!):




The turtle pouch (which has become my pencil case):


And the beautiful photograph (which is going to decorate my crafty space):

Hello, everyone! ;D

As embarrassing as it is, I'm the nut that was still posting in the original thread, wondering where the heck everyone had gone to  :P Then it dawned on me (duh) that by this point there is a gallery and I'm missing out on viewing all the goodies!! LOL. This isn't even my first swap- I'm such a dork.  ::)

Everyone's packages so far are amazing! I've seen so much stuff that I either want one myself, or I'm jealous that I didn't think of it first!  :D

t-dub, I'm glad the package brightened your day! Your's had the same effect on me- I had just come home all kinds of bummed out from dress shopping (I HATE dresses) ... and there is was, waiting for me! Yay!

I see now that I may have gone a tad overboard, but I just kept finding stuff to add... I didn't even realize how much there was until I went to pack it all into the box!

Okay- I think now I am all caught up. I will post photos of my goodies from t-dub (including the most amazing mug ever...) as soon as I get some fresh batteries for the camera (stupid camera- I stole my sister's just so I could take pics before I shipped). Or, if you'd rather, you're welcome to post photos of your own, t-dub!


Title: Re: Fill A Mug Swap Round 3 Gallery!

I also made her a tea wall hanging:

I love that wall hanging t-dub, that tea pot is seriously cute.

LOL. This isn't even my first swap- I'm such a dork.  ::)

Don't be embarrassed at all because I have been lurking on the other thread thinking "where are all the pictures?"

*palm to forehead* can you tell I haven't done a swap in over a year and a half?

I love all the goodies so far!  I know mine will take some time to get to me but I am happy to wait.  I am just anxious for littlebluegirl to get hers *crossing fingers that she likes it*

I got my package today!!  But not really, since I wasn't here to pick it up they took it back to the post office but I'll be going there to get it later tonight.  I'm getting a bit anxious about my own package to chloecat now as I sent about a week before her.  *frets*

Thank you for posting pics, t-dub! And thank you, as well, for the awesome stuff you sent me! The coasters are perfect for my bedroom, I love that they're flexible and will store easily in a drawer if need be... Also, the wall-hanging is adorable! Mmm- hot tea and a donut- the perfect breakfast! ;) I've already claimed wall space in the kitchen for it. And the mug is incredible! Its so pretty! I know this is silly, but there's this little dimple near the bottom of the mug that's so cute.  ::)  ;D

Awesome stuff (the tea is delicious, and I can't wait to have some cocoa!) thank you so much!!

YAY!  I'm glad you like everything  ;D  Uber first time swap anxiety was in effect.  The soap is a Jasmine Tea blend, that for some reason smelled more like raspberry and jasmine lol  The bath teas are oatmeal and lavender, perfect for that itchy winter skin hehehe Can't wait to get my goodies!

WOW!  I'm really jealous.  I am a HUGE fan of the new Dr. Who, but items are very hard to come by here in the states (and we can't order from BBCShop.com

I wanted an Alice In Wonderland theme and boy did I get some awesome stuff from the lovely sprklgrl81 :-D


Sorry it took me sooo long to post pictures, I love everything so much!
Here are my cuppies!

 
3 of them! also pictured is some Italian roast coffee which is my absolute favorite, some mexicocoa, which I haven't tried but I cant wait to!  I love the travel mug I use it everyday she also included three sleeves so I can switch it up! such a great idea...  ;D Also you can't really read the whole mug that says "they will not wait... can't be late" and it has a really cute clock in the center of it. The other mug is polka dotted. *not pictured is chai bought from a local Indian store, I haven't tried this one yet either.



Next my goodies which includes a bunch of individual cookies, nutella (Omg this stuff is amazingly good I saw it in the store one day and said "eww are you serious?" and passed it up, now I have a jar  :D)  Also she made me some chocolate spoons in three different flavors *cinnamon *creme de menthe *peppermint, they are incredibly yummy!  and my favorite kind of tea... The little cookie jar is so perfect it has a cupcake and crossbones and says "sweet as hell" and iron on cuppycakes!



These little jars are awesome, and inside is chocolate covered blueberries, yum!

On to the most awesomely embroidered tea towel! she also embroidered a tote that is too cute! I don't have it pictured because I some how I deleted the group shot  ::) (If you have a pic please post it :) )


If I missed anything I am sorry my camera is a tricky beast!

I was so spoiled! Thanks again sprklgrl81, you were an awesome partner!

I received today from goatgoddess and what a great package it was. I used my mug right away, I love it so much and the wall hanging is great and I love the twig coasters.

I will post pictures tomarrow, oh and goatgoddes could you post a picture of the little glass ornament, the box was brutalised when I got it and the ornament never made it. I will tell you right now that it would have been perfect. My husbands nickname is Mieces (ironic; since he is 6'4"), and he was the one to introduce me to a life of tea. I wanted to cry when I found it broken I would have loved to put it on my tree.

Alice in Wonderland package is fantastic!! I especially love the embroidered tea towel! Its so well made (nice even stitching, I'm jealous)!

Babalina, PetitMer- so sorry to hear about your shipping mix up! That can be so totally frustrating! I hope the employees are at least helpful- the ones at my local PO often have a horrible, indifferent attitude. Grrr!!!  >:(

Post by: angrykittymeowmeow on November 16, 2008 01:38:44 AM
As promised, PICS.  There is even more in this great package, but my bf thought he would "help" unpack by cleaning off my desk and craft space (you know, the first things I unpacked and organized)  At least he tried lol  My partner was so incredibly creative!

Group Shot minus mug, because I'm using it.  I love the matching mommy & baby cat ear hats!  The awesome wooden box contains some teas, including a jasmine ball (I didn't know what it was until I read your note).  She dyed it with earl gray tea then oiled and sanded it. 


close up of the great jewelry, felted leaf magnet, and fringe of the scarf


Inside pouch of the brilliant "Tea Bag" purse


My awesomely cool mug that she etched herself with this great tree and bird, in use the second I got it.  WOW!


As I said, there is even more, but I have to wait for the bf to get home and show me where he put it in his helping.  It included some awesome button hair clips, beaded anklet, and more earrings.  I just wanted to go ahead and show off all my goodies hehe

I received my awesome package from goodtimegirl last week! I'm sorry it took me a few days to get the pictures up.

She hit my tastes right on and send me a lovely package!!

Here is a darling reversible apron (i love the coffee cup print - and there's coffee beans on the other side!), a cute little book to make gift in bags (going to be using for Christmas), some coffee, and then she made me the best hot choclate mixes, and coffee spice, as well as cider spices (you can see I have already been using it - yummy!):


here are my recipes, my mug (perfect!! it says shhh...I'm reading all over it), some super cute notecards, and some coasters:


and because her embroidery is so gorgeous, I have to show you, here is a close up of one of the coasters! and it's a fall theme - I adore anything autumn related!


thank you so much, goodtimegirl, this was a super fun swap!

kitkat_pro - got her's a while back but she wasn't feeling well so thought I would post pic's of what I sent - didn't take pic's of the tea just the handcrafted items and the cup

the cup is from Peir one and the the ornie is rubberstamped image of a House Mouse in a tea cup with sparkly behind it, under the cup and behind it are two coasters made from willow twigs, they turned out nicely (first time I ever tired them) thinking about making a set for myself.




This is a fabric shrine to Tea :) - used wool felt with roving for the steam.

Between the flu and my RA acting up I haven't been able to take pictures. I realy do love everything. I use the mug everyday and the coasters are on my endtable and the hanging is in my hall. Unfortunatly the ornamint broke in transit, the box was so mangled when I got it. Thanks again you were a great partner :)

Thats so weird, I used that address (my work studio) because it's so much easier to get packages there than at my apartment building. I get deliveries there everyday! Gah, I would so much rather use UPS or something like that for these things, they're so much more reliable! I'm really glad tho that all of your work and efforts weren't lost, that would be the worst!

What a happy surprise! My swap angel package arrived this morning - thank you so much Daniethanas! You outdid yourself with this package - I love it. Without further ado, here are the goodies:

The mug and goodies inside. Yum! This mug arrived just in time as I start back to work tomorrow morning after a few weeks off. Glad to be able to bring my coffee with me for a change!


Samples of some New England roasted beans including two fun flavored coffees:


Coffee themed marble magnets! Hard to tell in this photo, but the are the XL size. Very cute!


All of the handmade items together. A dishcloth, small scrubby, crocheted coffee cuff, coasters, and colorful bookmark. These are all great! I can crochet, but nowhere near this fancy.


Slightly better view of the bookmark. This thing is AWESOME. Daniethanas used thread to make it and it is so delicate. I can't imagine all of those tiny little crochet stitches. The best part is that I was just thinking the other day that I needed a proper bookmark as I tend to use receipts, envelopes, or whatever other scrap of paper I can find to mark my page. This one is much better.


Lots of fun extras! Little buttons, plenty of hot cocoa, cookies, candies, and a purse-sized planner.


Thank you so much for your thoughtful package, Daniethanas. It was well worth the wait!

I have just received my angel package from  macreede, everything was very nice  worth the wait.
First the cup and coffee/tea with some Hershey's chocolate kisses in the top.

The beautifully crocheted coasters and warmer.

And a crocheted hand towel holder with a very nice tea towel.


Thankyou very much macreede,I really like the stuff you have sent I will try the coffee tonight when its a bit cooler here. :)

So I guess my partner never received  :-\  but barbalot said I should post pics of what I sent anyway.

I didn't get pictures of everything and I handspun some yarn for my partner from coffee dyed roving which I can't find a picture of the finish object but here it is in it's dye bath.  It also had some swirls of dark brown and raspberry merino, thick thin and about 100 yards.  It was my medium sized project.  And it smelled like heaven after it was finished!  Hopefully I can find a finished pic somewhere  ???



This was straight from her wists and it the chemical symbol for caffeine.  I made it from Shrinky and strung it on a SS chain.  This I was really proud of since it took a long time to cut all those two holes in the middle



This was also from her wists, a small bottle top pincushion and I made it into a cup-o-cocoa (also in one of her favorite colors)



And then I made her a to-go cozy with buttons (She loves a buttons!)



I didn't get all the goodies in a picture since I thought that she would be able to take one.  But I send her along a coffee mug from a local artist.  It had this beautiful deep brown glaze on it and was perfect for a cup of tea.  I also sent her her favorite cocoa (land-o-lakes mint chocolate) and a couple of sweets.  And I found some amazing loose-leaf teas at our local co-op so I sent her a variety.

Well, hopefully one day she still receives it - I would be just so bummed that I work on all of it for nothing.

Hi, I'm not in this swap, but I wanted to stop by and say that the cup-o-cocoa pin cushion is adorable as is the to-go cup cozy :)

Aww gerrijo, everything you sent is gorgeous!  I'm so sad I never received it, I love the necklace.  I'm so sorry you never got your package either, I worked hard on it.  Damn the postal system.

I love the crocheted goodies especially the bookmark :) The pincushion looks lush!
I wouldn't have thought of dyeing fibers with coffee..............ooooh, i bet the smell was gorgeous. Does it smell once it's dried? That would be awesome! ;D
