Also ilovemybrachiosaurus, the pictures you tried posting didn't show up for me, so I just wanted to post some other pics of the afghan I made because I am so proud of it. Smiley The colors were much more vibrant in person, but didn't photograph well for me Sad

A harry potter journal

A fantastic little pincushion jar; love the fabric!

A little tea holder, I've wanted one of these forever and she filled it with some yummy teas!

Love the fabric on the inside

A cute mug cozy

and one of my most favorite items she sent were to make my own terrarium. I LOVE terrariums!!!!!

3  Seashell Painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by iliveonarainbow on: August 05, 2012 04:50:17 PM
I made this for my bathroom! I glued on all the seashells (when will I learn that using a glue gun for hours at a time is a bad idea?!)
I really like the way it turned out, Smiley

Close up on some of the shells

I received from lissablair a few days again and she sent a lovely package!
Oh, look at the goodies in there

First (it's hard to see them well, but they are beautiful!) are some gorgeous closures and some little stone beads!

LOVE those little elephant beads!

She sent a bunch of awesome stone ones (there were more, but I forgot to take a picture of them all after I sorted through all the soup)

Check out these awesome purple stone beads! LOVE!!! They are so pretty!

Some really pretty cat's eye type beads and then some pretty blue ones

Some of my favorite charms she sent

And a bunch of lovely buttons. Again, I LOVE the gorilla. He is awesome! I will have to make something cool to put him on!

And here is the crafted item she sent: some gorgeous little earrings!

I am totally wearing these to work today!

Thank you so much lissablair! I still haven't replaced my digital camera and the pictures were taken with my phone, so feel free to post more pictures if you want!

Okay, sorry I haven't posted before now; it's been really hectic last week because of school and then to top it all of I got into a car accident after work on Saturady. Sad But I received from Hoppy last week.

Isn't it lovely? She did leaf printings! Pretty!

So glad you liked everything Beunruffled!! And I am so glad the vase made it there safe and sound, I was terrified it would get broken!

I received too on Thursday from Beunruffled, but have been busy with work and class (although Beunruffled still did a better job of posting before me Wink)

First, are these two lovely scarfs!! I don't have any this shape and I love them!

She also sent this hanging earring organizer, WHICH I LOVE TO PIECES!!! I have SO many earrings and it is so my style!!!

Isn't it just gorgeous? It's hard to tell from the pictures, but some of the feathers have glitter on them and it's really pretty!
Then she sent me this little bracelet as an extra (she said she was trying her hand at jewellery making and it turned out AMAZING! I love it! I am actually wearing it to work today! Smiley)

Thanks so much beunruffled!! You were a great partner and I hope you enjoyed your first swap! Smiley

I received from the wonderful tankrgrl yesterday; she sent me a magnificent packaged!!
The first thing I saw when I opened the packaged was this lovley bag!

It's so nicely made! I am envious of her sewing skills!
Here is a close up of the mockingjay and the inside lining.

And there was a little piece with my favorite quote on it.

And inside the bag was this AWESOME hoodie!! It is soooo comfy and warm! I love it to pieces! People are going to be so jealous when I wear this out in public. Wink

And then finally as an "extra" she sent this t-shirt. She said it didn't really turn out the way she wanted it, but I think it looks amazing! It's district one because that's what I got sorted into on the website; ironically enough my profession turned out to be furrier... I'm vegetarian. Sad So go figure lol.

Thank you SOOOO much tankrgrl!!!! You sent an amazing package and I can't wait to wear all of this stuff to the premiere!

I received from cinnamon teal last week and OMG she was a fantastic partner!!!!

First, a little group shot.

The first things I opened was this lovely picture:

I had been secretly stalking her blog and really hoped she would draw me something since she is such a lovely artist, so
I was so happy when I saw this!
Here's a close-up of the baby elephant; isn't his expression adorable?

It was hard to pick a favorite thing she sent, but I really love these!!! Hand-knitted socks in my favorite color! They fit perfect and I have always wanted some! They are super comfy too!

A hand-knit box. I just love this too! It is so well-made! It is about 2 and 1/2 inches tall and maybe a little less than a foot sqaure? I'm not really the greatest as gauging things though, haha. I will probably use this to store current crochet projects I am working on or maybe store headbands or jewellery in it.


Next, a FANTASTIC star garland!!! I don't know how she knew this, but I have been wanting some of these stars for a while, I think they are just precious. And what makes it even better is that they are made out of a map!! I LOVE maps!!! It's really long too; it's going to looks great in my craft room. Smiley

close up so you can see the detail of the stars

And lastly a stamp that has mine name in Egyptian letters (how cool is that? I just love ancient Egyptian culture) and a maple moose sucker (which is yummy!)

THANK YOU SO MUCH CINNAMON TEAL!!!!  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy You were fabulous partner and I seriously feel rather inadequate for what I sent now.
