I've been slacking off, but I recieved the greatest swap package from imera last week! Imera sewed and hand painted the most perfect tote bag for me.

She knew I love sea creatures so not only is there a jellyfish:

But the cutest octopus!!

Here are some more shots of the bag. It will be perfect for taking my shoes to the gym.

I received the coolest package from PerfectlyBohemian! It is full of my two favorite things- plants and fibery goodness.

First up is a set of amazing airplant canvases with the pouches made from felted fiber. I have been curious about airplants for a while, so I am super excited about having some! I've already hung these up all over my house!

PerfectlyBohemian also created the most perfect felted artwork for me as well! I love the colors and the textures and it fits in perfectly with the mid-century vibe I am trying to create in my home.

Look at all this texture!!

Here it is in it's new home in my kitchen.

PerfectlyBohemian also send me a bunch of succulent cuttings that I can't wait to propagate!

Thanks so much for everything. I truly love it all.

I received the most amazing swap package from fluffypants! I was so excited to open it when it arrived that I forgot to take a photo of the amazing donut wrapping paper on the outside of the package. Trust me- it was epic!

The first thing I unwrapped was a kickass new apron for my DH. He is definitely the baker in our family, and loves to make pretzels, so this is perfect! I didn't get a shot of the back but the pretzel ends are actually the ties. So clever!

Next up was this intriguing package. I love googly eyes, but I was a little confused. So I set them aside and unwrapped the package...

To find this amazing painting! I love the colors and the fact that it looks like a retro advertisement.

I am guessing that you all figured out what the googly eyes were for, didn't you...  Grin

I laughed forever when I put the googly eyes on Mary Berry. It is sheer perfection!!

Fluffypants also included some yummy Jaffa Cakes- which I've never had but now love, and some yummy looking tea.

Thanks for everything Mary!

I just discovered this thread, and I just happened to have finished making my very first crochet shawl! Seredipity Grin

It's a pretty basic granny square shawl made with Caron Cakes- one of the Big Cakes. This fun orange and grey shawl took one skein.

I love the idea of challenges, I will have to see what pattern I can find for a uniquely shaped shawl.

I received an amazing package full of goodies from Mistress Jennie! I was bouncing with glee as I opened each of the individually wrapped items.  Grin

First up- the edibles. Being from Wisconsin, I am a cheese fiend- so I am very intrigued by these cheesy shortbreads. I've never had gourmet marshmallows before. These ones are rose flavored, and I can't wait to give them a try.

Next up- the supplies: Jennie send me some amazing yarns to play with. The two skeins on the right are made with banana fiber. This is the only acceptable use for bananas  Grin

Finally the crafted goodies. Jennie made me the most perfect crochet basket out of recycled sari silk. It fits perfectly on my end table and I already using it to hold my nighttime skin care products!

I am in love with this super squishy crochet cowl. I've worn it the last two days and finally remembered to take an action shot when I got to work this morning.

Thank you again Jennie for being an amazing partner and for organizing this swap. You rock!!!

I recieved from both my partners this weekend! I absolutely love everything that smmarrt and thanate made from me.

First up from Smmarrt! An awesome mixed media canvas made with gelli prints which we both love, a collection of unique blank "books" made from paperbags and coffee cardboard, and a bunch of candy. There was also some yummy chocolate that did not survive long enough to be photographed.

Here is a close up of the canvas. I love all of the colors and shapes- and of course what it says  Grin

Next up are the amazing goodies that thanate sent me. A prayer flag with some amazing machine stitched characters, chocolate protein bars that will come in handy in my health and fitness quest this year, a selection of teas and a beautiful embroidered bag ( I just realized that image is somehow flipped... not sure how that happened)

Here is a close up of the cool stitching and fabric in the prayer flag. This was really hard to photograph, but it is amazing in person!! I love the deer antlers and skull the most.

I received the most amazing package of goodies from gozer! She definitely spoiled me  Grin

She sent me Stephen King's newest book and the most adorable creepy cute Edward Gorey book. I can't wait to snuggle up on the couch and read both of these!

Here are all the goodies she made for me. Two adorable pouches, one with a snap and a cute winter themed zippy one. She also made me two adorable necklaces and sent me some of my favorite dark chocolate.

Here is a close up of the two necklaces. I love the texture of the "Read" necklace and the glass one looks like a mini terrarium!!

Thank you for bring an amazing partner, gozer!
