My Girls:  Emily has the long straight hair and Audrey has the curly hair in the ponytail. (sad cell phone pics)

They live in my dining room: 
(I plan on getting another bookcase, hopefully not as shallow in order to "decorate" more)

I received from Gamemom42 and I swear she sent me something to enjoy with all of my interests. My giant wist probably made her go insane but she has created the most amazingly perfect swap package in existence! Sorry for the bad cell phone pics, they do NOT do these items justice.

All together:

Hello Kitty shirt! It was the perfect size and I never even told her my size.

My very own Hoops & YoYo!!!!!!!

An awesome Irish apron that twirls when I spin around in it and it makes a big bow in the back the way I LOVE aprons to do.

A pot holder to match my apron and a mini apron!!

An action shot of Audrey in her unfinished kitchen:

You can't see all of the letters in the picture but it's for Beta Sigma Phi, my sorority! I think I'm going to steal her idea and make one for each of my sorority sisters!

Gummy bears.... drool.... my favorite. And a cupcake journal. My hubby asked me what I was going to do with the journal since I don't write and I came up with a good idea! All of these great cupcake and frosting recipes I see online I'm going to put them in my Cupcake Journal Cookbook!

And the most amazing thing, a cupcake tapestry/wall hanging. I really wish I could take better pics of this to show everyone the immense amount of talent that Gamemom42 has.

I'm going to post the thumbnail version of the cupcakes since there are six of them, but 3 are embroidered and the other 3 are puffed up on top. All different fabrics! This is just jaw dropping in person.

Thank you so much Gamemom42! If I would have seen all of this at a craft show I would have bought every single thing that you sent me. I'm still in shock of what an amazing package I've received. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

On her wist she had the cutest piggy bank covered in rainbow balinese filigree. I'd never done that before with clay and it did not turn out the way I wanted so I painted it a coppery bronze. I absolutely love it and plan on making more. I'm so glad it's on her mantle, I have a picture of it on my mantle before I sent it. I think it looks so much better in person. I actually impressed myself.

I currently have to use my cell to take pics and I'm disappointed I couldn't get a good picture of everything together. I received a book, a duffel bag, and an amazing poppet. (craftster poppet, not voodoo poppet)

Lukenlarry even sent me extras supplies for the poppet!

This bag is so soft and pretty, I wish I could get a better pic of the pink colors.

Felt shoes! So cute!

Cute dress with an opening in the back for her tail. (I think of poppets like big mice friends)

This was the first poppet I've seen with hair like this, I absolutely love it! It's pink with strands of different colored "tinsel".

WWJD and pearl necklace. I thought that was a great detail along with the earrings.

This picture is because she's starting to show "personality" and now I need to come up with a name. Since I received her from this swap, I'm thinking about Grace or Faith.

I don't have any action shots but I can tell you that I was giggling and squealing the whole time I was unwrapping my "gifts" from 'marcusandila'.    **Cell phone pics, sorry**

Goodies! Treats, chicks, toys, shamrocks, pillow with Lucky's name on it, collar, and a ball to hide treats in:

I had to show the note she put in the box since she color coded all of the gifts in different colored tissue paper. A stick chaser thing with feathers (combo of Lucky's 2 favorite things), magnet pictures of my babies!!!, shamrock earrings and bracelet for me to start wearing NOW in prep for St. P's Day, and extra shamrocks from the other stick that she sent me (thank you! i can never find supplies like that):

The most awesomest stick toy with shamrocks hanging from ribbon at all different lengths with little gold bells and Irish fabric handle:

I LOVE everything but oh my goodness, my excitement level went overboard when I opened this stuff! Ila knows that I'm going to be getting a chihuahua puppy this summer and she sent me stuff for my future puppy!! Isn't that thoughtful!! I'm saving money to put towards buying the pup but I'm so obsessed with accessories that I've (already) been disappointed that when I get my baby I won't have anything for her. Thanks to Ila now I will. I'm just so darn excited!!:

White T says "One Lucky Pup" with a shamrock on it and pink and black T says "High Maintenance" and my very own dog carrying bag! My baby will be riding in style everywhere I go! Even on visits to go see Ila!!

Here's my sweetie Precious:

Here's Precious and Bailey, Bailey was put to sleep 11-30-07 she was MY dog/baby and the best daughter I could have ever had. When I was recovering from my hysterectomy she never left my side. It was like she knew I needed a little girl to hug.

Here's the best picture of Lucky that I have:

Here's Lucky in "baby mode" being held by my "hunny bunny"(yes he's wearing a different hoodie):

"MarcusandIla" came to my house today!! We hung out and talked, made dinner together, had a little wine (not involved with the swap process), and had a great time. I love them both!  --I discovered that my camera isn't working so for the swap I have to use my cell phone.

This is what was waiting for her:

Ila about to have some of our chili:

Us together: (my eyes look evil like they are all black)

Ila getting ready to open some presents:

Ila opening her Day 12:

Me with part of my Day 12:

Ila opening her Day 2: (I had to wrap them in a translucent tablecloth so I had her open it today)

Ila wondering what the heck a bunch of cups are doing in the shape of a ball: (sparkleball)

My table was only cleaned off for about 20 minutes and now look at it!


On the twelfth day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

12 Hello Kitty Sparkly Ornaments and 12 Pretty Christmas Wine Glass Charms

On the eleventh day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

11 beautiful Christmas soaps! (already on display in my bathroom)

On the tenth day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

10 Crocheted starched holiday ornaments! (the stitches are so tiny! good detail work!)

On the ninth day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

Dog treats, dog shampoo, a dog shirt with a sparkly P on it for Precious, cat treats, a catnip mouse, a crocheted shamrock with pockets in it to put catnip in for Lucky, a wiggly ball with feathers, and for me Hello Kitty jewelry sets, stickers, and a HK charm to put on anything I want!

Precious checking out her shampoo before she started to go crazy opening the next present.

I couldn't get a good pic of her with this one and I almost lost a finger in the process.

On the eighth day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

Eight ornaments! (and a bonus finger bowling game)

On the seventh day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

A skull ice cube tray, bead kit, and BOOKS!!

On the sixth day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

Hello Kitty bath set!!!! HK soaps!!! A coral (fav color) scarf, Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Browns ornaments, Beta Sigma Phi ornament, crocheted cotton washcloth, knitting needle bangle bracelet. Today was a good day!!

Crochet and soaps in detail:

On the fifth day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

3 stenciled shirts, 1 picture frame and candle kit, and a coffee cup oil warmer! (I love the scents)

Detail of the fabulous stenciling:

On the fourth day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

The cupcake apron came from another craftster (Kristiann88) because I LOVE cupcakes and pink. I've never received pants in a swap before! I've worn them twice since I got them. The shirt is in Beta Sigma Phi's colors that I will wear to the next meeting. Cupcake apron, shirt, pants, and jewelry:

I couldn't get a good pic of the jewelry because it sparkles so much! Pink earrings and three bangle bracelet that has a sparkly K, shamrock, and pearl. I've worn this quite a few times already.

On the third day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

An amigurumi ninja from my wist!! Billiard ball ornaments from my wist!!

And an amazing stuffy nativity!!!!! (this will turn into an heirloom item)

Here's another pic of it on the side of my fireplace mantle: (it's a big fireplace)

On the second day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

2 awesome 'punk' reconned tank tops that I wanted!:

On the first day of Christmas MarcusandIla gave to me:

The BESTEST present EVER!!!!
An amigurumi Hello Kitty with a removable hood!!!!!!!!!!

Here is me about to kiss my new best friend:

In case anyone was counting, that's 51 ornaments!!! The HK glitter balls went on my pink tinsel tree, the cleveland ornaments went on my regular tree with the angel and white glitter ones. The billiard balls are on another pink tinsel tree I put on my pool table, the potpourri filled ones are hanging in my closet. And the crocheted and starched ones are hanging from the garland around the fireplace.

Handbaghannah83 received on Tuesday but hasn't posted pics of what I sent her. So here it is:

All together:

T-Shirt with "liquid embroidery":

Painted picture frame with perler bead design added:

A plaque with raised glossy glitter letters (this took about 3 days worth of layering):

She loves flip flops so I got the black ones to accent with gold glitter glue:

The box to keep her pin/pin guard/achievement bracelet in:


A necklace with six charms on it so she can wear whatever charm she wants (top/left is a cupcake):

Misc. goodies, 2 skull with hearts iron ons, 2 heart magnets, 1 "J" magnet, 1 skull magnet, 2 perler bead items for her to use in scrapbooking:

Our official colors are Black and Gold but her favorites are Black and Pink so I tried to make the whole package fit her perfectly. And, she loves hearts and skulls.

I received from Handbaghannah83. The up close picture of the two boards was bigger than 2mb so I couldn't upload it. They didn't handle shipping very well so I'll have to try and fix them.

All together:


Clip, box, stickers, altoid tin, picture frame:

Lap blanket:

Thank you! I really like the lap blanket, it's starting to get cold here.

I received from grey_pearl today!

All together:

The cupcake that's on the bag and the box that the little stuff came in:

She painted with glitter to make a picture on foam for me:

Cards, I'm going to send these to my mom since she's into paper crafts:

A cell phone charm and my absolute FAVORITE item is the tiny cupcake notepads:

Altoid tin and sprinkles thing on ribbon, I thought it was a necklace but it doesn't fit over my head, was it supposed to be something else? I'm going to cover it in resin because the sprinkles are turning black without having a sealer.

Magnets in tin, one of the magnets came off but I've got a year's supply of E6000 for such problems:

The three confusing items....... The poly clay cupcakes don't have anything on the back so I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do with them and the little container is sealed shut so I don't know what it's supposed to be for either:
