I received my package from Twisted Truth on Friday, but today was the first day that I felt good enough to venture outside and take pictures.

Here we go!!!

Here is the obligatory group shot


Jhonen Vasquez coin purse and a question sleep key chain

Invader Zim cross stitch

A couple of paintings. Nny and Gir ( those lines on the outside are from the grass that needs to be cut  Grin )

And lastly- my favorites- Tote Bags!!!

Happy noodle Boy

Ms. Bitters
I guess I didn't take a picture of the front, which is too bad because I really love it! You can see it in the first group shot.
Here is the back (which is one of my favorite quotes from Invader Zim)

Thank you TwistedTruth!! Now I need to find some frames for the paintings so I can hang them up!!

dcoyote asked me to post pictures of what I had sent her. So here we go!

A H2G2 logo I created with photoshop and stenciled with freezer paper that she can put on whatever she would like

I made a bunch of shrinky dink magnets. I also created these with photoshop and used the printable Shrinky Dinks and sealed them with UTEE.

(if you can't tell this is supposed to be a bowl of petunias  Grin)

She asked for a scarf- so I made her two (the colors are much truer to life in this picture)

Here is a close up of the "42 scarf"

I received my jar from SamsonsLynnie this afternoon. I had taken all of these wonderful pictures but for some reason my computer did not want to read my memory card so I had to take them over. It was so much fun playing with everything as I pulled it out of the jar.

Here is a the jar after I stuffed everything back in to take a picture  Grin. SamsonsLynnie had it more artfully packed, I just jammed everything in Tongue

Group shot of everything

Closeups of some of my favorite things:
Charms that SamsonsLynne made out of polymer clay- you can kind of see the crochet flowers that she made in the background.


Little Blue Man

Tiny ceramic deer

Now I am off to play with my tiny toys!!

Thank you SamsonsLynnie!!!

In the package was:

-Scrapbooking paper

-Two types of fabric
-An huge amount of awesome cookie cutters in dinosaur and other animal shapes

I am so glad that you like everything lovefindslove, and that it arrived in one piece- I was really worried about that pot!

This was my first time working with polymer clay, and it was so much fun. Since I actually liked  how they turned out here are some close ups of the pot and plant markers  Grin

P.S. I got the hanging strawberry planter at my local garden store. Sorry I had to cut up the box- it just wouldn't fit any other way!

Here is the group shot of what I received from lovefindslove.

She sent me sunflower seeds and various herb seeds, a cute watering can, three different fabrics, a melty record bowl, and a recipe notebook with some yummy sounding recipes.

Thank you so much lovefindslove!!

P.S. Luckily nothing she sent me was breakable because this is how the package looked when I got it!

267  Gnome beer cozy in Crochet: Completed Projects by LeapFeetFirst on: March 17, 2008 01:43:08 PM
I made this gnome beer cozy for a swap. My partner had a knitted version in her wist, but since I can't knit, I thought I would try to make a crochet version. It was so much fun to make, although I did have to make it three times before I was happy with the way it fit on the bottle. With out further ado-

And a close-up of the stitches

P.S. My first Craftster completed project post!!!

I received my package from igobylorib today. She had claimed me for some reuseable veggie bags and yarn.

The bags are just perfect, she made some from muslin and some from mosquito netting. I like the fact that you can see into the mosquito netting ones. The yarn is a super soft cotton yarn made in Chile. And she included an awesome owl mirror.

Thank you so much igobylorib!!

I recieved a wonderful apron from MareMare yesterday. She did such a wonderful job with picking out the fabrics!! I have already broken it in by spilling food on it last night as I made supper. Good thing I had my new apron on  Grin

I received my package from lapoli. I loved opening each package, it was like Christmas all over again!

First here is a group shot of the wonderful packaging.

And here is everything unwrapped:

Something Local: A wonderful birch crochet hook made from local artisans. I can't wait to try this on my next project.

Something round: Tins for my spices. I don't know how she knew- but I was just telling my husband that we needed to redo our spice storage. These will help so much. B=basil, T=thyme, p=parsley,M=marjoram, and o=oregano.

Something green: Handmade green tea and cucumber soap. This just smells so yummy

Something Hard: Two bars of hard dark chocolate. I love the wrappers on these. And they taste pretty good too.

Something related to "T": Well I know that Lapoli had a hard time with this one but I think she did great Smiley She sent a "Try Me" kit of different yarns because I've only ever really worked with acrylic yarn. There are two cotton yarns and a soy/wool blend

Something Funny: Mr. Funky's Super Crochet Wonderful- need I say more??

Sender's Choice: Something warm. Lapoli knit me a calorimetry. I absolutely love this! I have been drooling over all the cool ones here on Craftster, and now I have one of my own Grin

And an action shot: This is so perfect, considering that this is pretty much how I wear my hair everyday and having to undo my pony tail every time I have to wear a hat gets annoying.

Thank you lapoli!!! I love everything.
