I received today (well, yesterday, but I haven't slept yet, hehe). I got the beautiful mittens A2K made! I am soo happy! And the best thing is that they fit my hands perfectly :)



Thank you so much A2K! I love them! They will be getting lots of use this winter!

ORGANIZER NOTE

TODAY is sendout day!!!  We have just a handful of people that have not sent, and if you have sent and not sent me a PM, please do so.  I can't track you properly if I don't know what you're doing ;)  LOL!  Thanks!

Sweet! Looks like you're in the right climate to use those mitts, tcmatteson!
Argh, now the hard part: I'm going traveling on Wednesday, and won't be back until Nov. 1st, so I have to wait until then to see what my prize is! Maybe I can guess based on what everyone else receives.

They really are lovely!  Coming from someone that owns some of A2K's great yarny items, including a custom pair of felted rainbow striped mittens, her stuff ROCKS!

Here's my AWESOME prize!!!  Cannot believe my wife drew this HUGE winner for me :D



On a temporary spot on my wall so I could take a pic.  This will be joining the many other hoops I've received in swaps on my hoopla/art wall.  I actually spaced things out too much when I made it, as I have continued to receive hoops and art and am out of room :P

Check out the back!  Is this printable fabric?  Backing is a thin layer of felt or batting with the label machine stitched on.



SO great!!!  The stitching is TOTALLY perfect.  What better gift for a mod to receive than a hoop immortalizing the best place to hang out on the internet :)  Thanks so much!!

The mittens and the hoop are awesome!!! My mailbox has been sad the last few days not having any mail in it, not even junk mail! It's dying to have a fabulous gift put in there  ;D

TSM, I admit to being quite jealous!  That hoop is way cool and was high on my list of wants!  Lucky you!

I'm honored to have my hoop grace your wall, TheSapphireMoon.  It is pretty perfect for a super duper dedicated Craftster Mod like you.  ;D  The back label is printed on inkjet fabric, good stuff for personalizing things (and a good shortcut if you don't have time to stitch all of that text).

Guess I'll cross have to cross those nice, toasty mittens off my possibilities list.  Lots of other wonderful stuff still in the pool, though.

Wow!  so much going on in the Gallery so far!

ACK! Totally Jello TC!!  I wanted those mitties so bad!

TSM,  again.  totally Jello!  The gallery started off with two of my top wishes!  BUT  there is sooooooooo much out there yet, and not a thing in the prize pool was something I would want.  I'm probably one of the last peeps on the line of delivery... I almost don't want to look at what all gets recieved! lol

Post by: TheSapphireMoon on October 26, 2011 09:33:53 AM
YAY!!  Every single person except 1 has sent, and she has communicated that she'll be mailing today :)  Everyone should keep an eye out for mail in the next few days in most of the US, and all you international folks should likely be getting stuff sometime next week or early in the week after.

I just took a break from my insanely crazy day to check the mailbox and ... it's here! I can't post pics until probably tomorrow as we are swamped getting ready for a trunk-or-treat party tonight. I will say this. I LOVE him *hint hint* and he will be coming with us to the trunk or treat. He is perfect! We are decorating our trunk with an ocean *another hint* theme.

Can you guess what I (I say I but my kids are already trying to steal him) got? ;D ;D ;D

I promise to post pics the first free second I get! :D

I had to go back and look at the prizes but I've figured out what you got - no wonder your kids are trying to steal him!

Post by: xperimentl on October 26, 2011 07:11:35 PM
I was excited to go to the mailbox today because I was expecting some fabric from eBay, no such luck, but I received my prize!  Sorry ladies, cross off that beautiful snake bracelet off of your lists...it's mine, all mine! 

I can't believe the work that coocoosnest must have put into it, it is absolutely gorgeous in person and has wonderful detail that doesn't show in photos.  She has cute little flowers along her back and the colors are iridescent.  The beads are so tiny!  It looks really pretty and delicate on and it looked great with the lavender cardigan that I was wearing today.  This little snake is definitely going to get worn. 

Thanks a million, coocoosnest.  Your beading is brilliant!

Now that my computer & camera have decided they like each other after all, I can share our adventures today.

As we were headed out to eat, I happened upon a nice couple of friends in our mailbox.   They must have heard about last winter's record lows as the brought their own scarves in preparation.

Yes, the sweetly fierce dragon and her bright daughter.

They loved the spicy burrito, but needed a drink to keep the fire at bay.

Then we all shared Jelly Belly beans as a dessert.

Followed by some playtime for the kids under Mama's watchful eye to burn off all that energy!

As promised, here are some pics of my little trunk-or-treating friend on our favorite picture taking rock. (I didn't get any pics of him at the party, he was having too much fun with my daughter who has now officially claimed him.)


Here he is in his in his jellyfish costume. Ready for Halloween! (He also came with some candy to share but it has been shared and enjoyed)


His mom wanted him to be warm and comfy as it is getting cold here in Utah so she made him a warm starfish bedroll. He snuggled in it last night. You can also see how cool the jellyfish costume is.

Goldfishpollywog, you are amazing! I am in awe of your skills! We love him! My daughter has renamed him "Bluey" (and I think he has become a her... ;)) Thank you so much! :D

Ooh, snake bracelet and dragon action pics! Beautiful and precious, and I LOVE that you shared your adventures with your new friends goldfish (and that they showed up in scarves  :D)! Such greatness with what everyone has received, and I love seeing new pictures of them, too. Can't wait to see what shows up in my mailbox....

...speaking of things showing up in mailboxes, I checked the tracking on my package and it looks like it is out for delivery today!

I'm glad that Bluey arrived in time for your trunk or treat and is well loved! The jellyfish hat/costume just seemed to fit. According to my Goose, I need to make more seahorse & costumes in different colors!

I just realized that in all my whining about lack of internet and being unable to check in much let alone post pictures, I completely forgot to say what I got.  You can all cross the lovely totebag off your lists because it is living at my house now.  Lacy0828 made a beautiful black and white and red tote back.  It is so well made and so pretty.  I love the colors.  I love the fabric.  I love the size.  I WILL get pictures as soon as I get connected.  Thank you so much!!!

Fabulous stuff.  I love the little accessories to go with the dragons and the seahorse, they just upped their little personalities even more!  Wore my bracelet again today and got compliments on it.  :)

I'm thinking buttons for OGD is a pretty good match, too.

I received a few days ago but couldn't find my camera.  Now my camera is found- so here are the pictures!  I received from Puzzler.  The first picture is more true to color of the purple scarf, and the second, well is just a little better picture.  This scarf is really short for me so my daughter is going to use it for one of her stuffed animals.  thanks Puzzler.





oh gee... the fist pic is horrible.  well the scarf is a dark purple

SSSSQQQUUUEEEE!  It was ME!!  Thank you for feeding my little guy as soon as he got out of his shipping crate.  I did let him eat the neighbors cat before taping him in, but it was a long trip and I imagine he was famished.  I do hope you are found soon though ;D

I'm so tickled with your photo shoot and double delighted he has gone to live with you erica_tattoos.  I'm quit sure he will not go hungry at your house ;D

I love that scarf!

Check mailbox...nothing, next day, check mailbox...nothing, next day, check mailbox...nothing. I'm really not a patient person when it comes to gifts in the mail...hahahaha.

In the meantime, I didn't feel like working at work so I printed up all the pictures of everything and crossed off everything I know I will not be receiving. There's still tons of great stuff left! Yes, I know, I'm lame  ;D

I received a couple of days ago, but I just now have the time to post pics.  Can I just say that I LOVE what I got?!  jillybeans sent me the cutest, most adorable tote bag!!



The lighting in my dining room is rubbish, so the pics aren't great, but the paint is so pretty and shiny.  This thing is so cute!!  And look at the little dangly she made for it!  Swoon....



the extras.  I've bought these little puzzle erasers for my niece, but I've never seen them in sewing paraphernalia!  And I heart buttons!!



AAANNNNNDDD....the SWEETEST, CUTEST, most ADORABLE little card ;D

jillybeans, I love this package, thank you so so SO much!!

Check mailbox...nothing, next day, check mailbox...nothing, next day, check mailbox...nothing. I'm really not a patient person when it comes to gifts in the mail...hahahaha.

Hey gang!  I received from frosty772 earlier this week and have been battling typical Seattle gloom in order to get photos, and failing. So for lovely posed photos, please see her original post:   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391053.msg4648780#msg4648780 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391053.msg4648780#msg4648780)

I did grab a couple silly shots, though, in one quick sun break. 

Here's a group shot of my aprons...



From the top, that's a white Boeing 747-800 apron. (yes, I R A GEEK)  ;)  Then a little pink and blue terry cloth half-apron that my grandmother used.  Then Frosty's lovely harvest/fall/autumn/Thanksgiving apron (LOVE LOVE LOVE), then a Christmas apron my mom gave me in the 80s, and then an apron made out of curtain fabric from one of my brothers' bedroom when we were little. He wanted yellow walls with orange trim, and these brown/orange/yellow monkey/jungle curtains that were much brighter colored back in the 70s!

So Frosty's apron joins a very elite group of vintage and sentimental aprons.

THANK YOU!  I love it.  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3  <3 <3

ps - the apron is also Phoebe-approved. Every time I've left it sitting around, she has sat upon it.



Hee.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haha, I am sure that whatever I get will be super awesome, there are so many wonderful things left, I am just super super impatient and ready for it to get here already!!!

Everyone be prepared to be jealous!!!! I received today from the one and only TheSapphireMoon!!! I totally love it, I'm so excited  ;D

Trying to take action shots of your wrist is not an easy task. And don't mind my tattoo looking nasty, I just got it 10 days ago and going back for the color this week. I can't wait to see it with my finished tattoo, I think they'll both reallly pop together. She named the bracelet "Fading Summer" and my tattoo is of a fall tree...hehe. Anyways, without further ado.....






Thank you TSM! I love love love it!!!!

Okies, I now happy to share with you all my prize!

TADA!!!


A MANDRAKE?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!  Omg omg OMG OMG!!!  So excited!!  I was so coveting this little bundle of ear piercing joy!  And, he was sent with some candy so he wouldn't get hungry on the way.  Needless to say, he was very hyper and extra ear piercing when I took him out of the package.


Look at the face!!!  So much personality!  I love his eyebrows and button nose!  Too cute!!


I had to don some earmuffs so I could snuggle him safely.  He went to a Halloween party with me last night and he had a blast.  He also accompanied me to work today.  I love him!!!

Yeah, I'm pretty happy.  <3

Hey! In my defense, I had just driven 8 hours through NY traffic.
But when I got home, I saw this:



Now what could be in there?



It's ANDRE THE ARMADILLO!
Yay! He's so adorable! I definitely had my fingers crossed for him, and I'm ecstatic that he was my prize! And he traveled with some really cool fabric too!



He's just as cuddly as he looks! I was worried that since he's from a much warmer climate than Vermont that he would get too cold. But he seems to like it here.



Thank you Whistley! He's awesome.

Still very jealous here!  But I know for sure the Mandrake has a good home with jillybeans.  And though I have yet to swap with ChameleonHound I do believe that armadillo will be very happy in it's new home.

Still not sign of my prize.  So guessing it is coming from across the boarder if not over seas.  One thing craftsters has taught me is patience ;D

Oh man, that armadillo was on my top 10 list so I had to cross off another item.

Here's my prize (it was in my top ten!):

 Deliciously scrumpciously squishy handspun yarn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Belladune sent me this tasty parcel (no, I didn't eat this yarn, but it comes close to giving me the same pleasure as eating, which is saying a LOT!).

She also sent a yarn cuff:    

I admit that I didn't know what this was for until Belladune let me in on the secret!  It fits and it's lovely!  What a great way to show off that little bit of handspun leftover from a project!  Thanks, Bella!  You rock!

Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!  Yesterday I had a long hard day of working outside.  At the end of the day I was so sore and worn out that I barely had enough energy to walk to the mailbox.  But I did and THERE IT WAS!!!!  I hurried as fast as I could to get cleaned up so I wouldn't get anything dirty and then I finally got to open it.

Ta Daaaa!
Firstly there is this amazing beaded necklace by Onyxnox. It is beautiful and I can't wait to get to wear it out somewhere.



Secondly there are the wonderful fingerless mitts.  I have wanted a pair of these for so long.  They are perfect and they fit perfectly and I know I will be wearing these from now on. They are so comfortable and warm.



And THIRDLY there was and extra surprise!  A beautiful forged wire bookmark!  It is truly gorgeous and very sparkly. I really Love it!



Everything is absolutely fantastic.  Thank you so much Onyxnox!!!  Your work is incredible and your package really lifted my spirit.


Group shot of my wonderful prizes.

and the beaded necklace.....another one of my favorites, it would have been the BEST Christmas present for a good friend of mine!!

The package I sent is still traveling .... Somewhere ..... No tracking updates.... Where oh where did my little box go?

I wasn't much of a fan of tea until this summer when I discovered honey as a sweetener :) Before then all I tried were teas sweetened by sugar and I couldn't really drink them but for a couple of sips :( But those mug rugs are gorgeous!

Mug rugs are handy for so many things.  I like soup in mugs best, and how cozy is that to have a rug to make it compleat?  I have a mug rug on a small table near the couch to catch all the drips and drabs I throw at it. ...but another want off my list LOL

Finally posting pics, sorry it took me longer than I thought!

So when I came home earlier this week I had this super awesome Hello Kitty covered package!



....and found out that I am the excited new winner of Aisy's makeup kit!


She even covered the bottom of the altered tin in Hello Kitty! Love!


In my excitement I totally forgot to take a picture of the contents. A tinted lip balm and three eye shadows. I did, however, snap a shot of the tinted lip balm on.

Before....

Amazing, right?!?  :P


I really really love the lip balm, it's hard for me to find shades that look good, and it's a nice coppery shade that is perfect. It's soft and moisturizing and even smells like mint and tingles! Thank you so much Aisy!

Those mug rugs look great. 

So now that all these things have been delivered, according to my count down, there are three more "prizes" on the way.  I'll keep checking my door step. :)

Is there only 3 items left to be delivered?

Well, if that's the case I wonder which of the 3 will show up at my door!  I haven't been keeping track!

Awwww - another Canuck having Canada Post anxiety - the last FOCR raffle I was in, they took a month to deliver my package from the US.  Though it could have been held up at the border.  It took me over six weeks to get a shrink plastic supply delivery this Fall.

I may die from the anxiety of waiting!!!

Yeah, I thought that number looked a little too low....I spent an hour checking over both the gallery AND all my PMs to see if I missed THAT MANY people. :D  Nope, there are still many fab items up for grabs!

I have been completing feedback for your senders as you PM me that you have received...if you have received and not sent me a message, please drop me a line saying you received so I can give them feedback.

Looks like the rose pins weren't put in the raffle :(

I have narrowed it down based on photos posted in the gallery (and im pretty sure this list is inaccurate as some ppl have already got feedback - so their items must have been recieved?)

-fabric bowls - scarf - both soap offerings - badges/fabric - 2 x hoopla - tote - yarn - map pendant - clutch - and the Owl puppet!

and yes i am just a little eager to see what my 'surprise' is :P

I have received a PM or 2 that said people received, but they did not tell me WHO they received from...I may have missed marking someone off if that person didn't tell me who they received from and if they also haven't gotten a chance to take pics and post in the gallery.  I think both totes have been received, actually??  I'll be combing things over again, I've been doing some stuff late at night, so it's 100% likely that I missed something :P

I have feedback! I guess that means that someone from Canada has recieved my Paisley hoop!

I'm sad to see that Waggonswest's fabric has found a new home, I was hoping for that! There are still quite a few left that I have my eye on though.

Post by: TheSapphireMoon on November 05, 2011 06:31:14 AM
Sorry, nilmerg, your item hasn't been received yet...that was a copy and paste FAIL on my part when trying to get feedback completed for someone above you in the list, I think.  Fixed now!

According to my official list, there are 9 prizes up for grabs, just about all of which are either international senders or receivers, or both sending and receiving internationally :P  Things appear to be slowly working through customs in Canada at least, so hopefully we'll be getting all 9 out to their homes and we'll be wrapping up another 100% successful swap!

Your partners has been super busy with training for a new job, actually, so I'm going to give her a few more days to post and if she doesn't, I'll let you know who received from you at least ;)  It's not a requirement to post here after receiving, just a nice gesture (and this round, a fun one, with all the cute 'staged' shots!  LOL!) and will not be something counted off for on feedback.  She has told me she received at least, so I can keep the records straight on the list up front.

Post by: badpuppy on November 09, 2011 09:12:50 AM
I'VE FINALLY RECEIVED!!  ;D  ;D  ;D

I won the awesome soap and eye pillow made by miknessevie.



The prize is absolutely perfect for me for several reasons:

1. Lavender is my absolute favourite scent.  I can't get enough of it.
2. I have ridiculously sensitive skin that can't handle perfume at all.  It's really hard to find soap that's actually scented with essential oils and only essential oils, so I normally use boring unscented stuff from a health food store.
3. I get really terrible migraines which cause me to hide in bed with a sleep mask on for days at a time.  I actually use a bit of lavender oil when I have them because I find it soothing (and I've read that it's supposed to help migraines).  So the eye pillow will definitely see use.
4. I love (read: am borderline obsessed with) goats and goat-related products (I plan to have my own goats one day, when the man and I buy a house).

Oh, and the anise soap is also excellent.  I am undecided whether to include it in a Christmas gift for a fisherman relative, or selfishly keep it for myself.  It smells tasty, I may just keep it!

Thanks so much, miknessevie!  I really, really appreciate soap I can use!

WOOOHOO! The delivery slip I got yesterday was my FOCR prize!  And it's quite the coincidence as I got soap too ;D.  I received a lovely set of soap and bath salts and a fab crocheted wash cloth from tcmatteson.  And the flavors are just perfect for me, as there is no lavender hehehe.  I'm allergic (I think as it makes me sneeze and doesn't smell lovely at all to me).


It was all packaged up so wonderfully!


Look at all the yummy flavors.  The one covered up by the bow is oatmeal, milk, and honey.  And I Love Love Love coconut so I'm super stocked about that one.  But they all are some of my favo flavors.


She also sent two packages of unscented bath salts.  Which is fab as I love baths but have troubles with strong smells.  I will be using some of these tonight as I had a long day painting today...and the last four days LOL.  I'm very much looking forward to using them.  The salts are displayed upon the huge sumptuous crocheted wash cloth.  I've never had one of these and I'm looking forward to using this too tonight ;D

Thank you so much Tamra.  You did an amazing job of picking flavors and scents that suit me ;D

Me too!  I am a bit paranoid right now as my MAF package has gone missing/possibly stolen, and am wondering if someone alon the line thought the FOCR package was so great they would take it!   Then again, the last time I was in a raffle, it did take over a month to get to me!

I know - Wasn't it something like I got your replacement package the day before the original one arrived or something???  It must have gotten held up at the border or something!  For that matter, the one I sent took a long time to arrive to ysmeine too - but I think part of that was the huge snowstorm they had!

I did get mine today - was so excited to see a package in the box when I came home from walking the dogs and it was for this swap - no wonder it took so long, it came all the way from Australia!!!!  It is the lovely tree hoop from nilmerg.  I need to find my memory stick and as soon as I do, I will post pics.  It is adorable and I can't wait to have my craft room so I can put it up on my soon to be hoopla wall!

Erica_tattoos' hoopla
hollistercobabe's infinity scarf
Luck Dragon's Fall clutch
Hockamama's map pendant.

And I think me, kwiltykate, UntouchableFace and imera are still to recieve? Is that right?!

Here is the pic of my awesome hoop sent from nilmerg all the way from Australia.  I love that you reused a cereal box to ship it in too - great idea.
I love the colours and all the little details in it.  Something new catches my eye each time I look at it.

That is such a fabulous hoop!  If I haven't pinned it already, I'm going to now!  I love trees...

After much waiting and worrying, my finally received my wonderful map pendant from hockamama!! I love maps and pendants! I've been wearing it all day.

And since I can't take a picture of myself at all, the lovely pendant will be modeled by my ever helpful Love Spongemonkey.


A little bit closer now:


Thank you so much hockamama!

(and now I really want a Quizno's sub...)

Guess what arrived today!!! From Luckdragon!!!!! I recieved her beautiful falling leaves clutch  :D ;D

I love it AND I'm having a kid free weekend in Canberra next weekend with Nat Act and Oodelally so I will actually be able to use it soon! (It won't fit the baby supplies I need on a regular day!)

Thank you Luckdragon. It took a whole month exactly to get here, thats a bit longer than normal, sorry.
