What are these cuties?

Cupcake tea cozies! Cheesy

Cute hair accessories!

I'm pretty sure I had some of these charms as a kid - definitely the hamburger.

Something Soft:

bunny! Smiley


Hello Kitty origami paper

A photograph:

A fun fabric picture in a frame! So cute!


Beautiful stained glass! I am so impressed by these, she did an awesome job making them!

For the child in you:

Hello Kitty sticker book and a JUMP ROPE!

Fun extras:

including a "husband control whistle" which made me laugh a lot! Cheesy

Thanks so much Mokba! I hope your package gets there super soon!

Look what Jeane made me!

A shot of the outer fabric:

beautiful batiks! The inner fabric is more blue/teal than grey like it looks in the picture.

And evil eye charms!

Thanks Jeane!

I'm a huge lame-o and forgot to post pics of my angel card that CraftyDame sent me!


It's all rainbowy and pretty! And the little airplane button is too cute! Cheesy

Here's the wonderful package that Jenicat gave me! I showed everything to Jenicat's brother, who is my FH, and he said "Wow, she made you a lot of cool sh!t, I hope you made her a lot of cool sh!t too!" So silly.

First, a group shot of all the loot!

Jenicat's daughter shows off my rainbow-themed Super Kitty!

Rockin' coiled rainbow coasters!

A super-handy rainbow hair-tie holder to keep in my purse (with matching rainbow hair ties!)

A crocheted rainbow purse with matching rainbow lining

An AWESOME rainbow coiled fabric bowl which is a featured project (I own a featured project! YAY! Grin)

Rainbow Brite buttons from my wist (I may have added them to my wist knowing Jenicat had a button machine Wink)

An awesome and super-comfy rainbow throw pillow

A "work survival kit"

with all sorts of useful stuff in it...

Jenicat's daughter grabbed the Tide pen, pulled off the cap and said "OOH! A MARKER!" and then went running off with it. I had to explain to her that it was a marker full of soap (best way I could think of to explain to a 2.5 year old what a Tide pen was) and get it back from her. She's the cutest! Cheesy

And then a completely non-rainbowy extra Grin



Thanks Jenicat! You are the bestest! Cheesy

My FABULOUS stalker, CraftyDeb sent me an AMAZING package! It even has a theme!

First, this beautiful reusable lunch bag!

I am trying to eat better/save money by not buying lunch every day at the mall where I work (Dairy Queen and Taco Bell for lunch does not a healthy meal make) and this is PERFECT!

It's so roomy inside!

Then, she made me all sorts of matching goodies! They are all beautiful and have embroidered stitches on them and I LOVE them Cheesy

Here are two tea wallets and a cute tea coaster - I can't drink chai anymore until I find out if I'm allergic to cinnamon, so I have been drinking a lot of tea for my caffeine lately! I wanted tea wallets so much! There are also a bunch of little kitties that were peeking out of both tea wallets! (It was like those Russian dolls, just goodies inside goodies!)

Here's a shot of the inside of the other tea wallet and the tea coaster in use to show how clever it is!

THEN! A reuseable sandwich wrap and snack pouch that also match the lunch bag!

The sandwich wrap unfolded and the inside of the snack pouch with SOUR SMARTIES! I didn't even notice they were sour at first. (I told you, goodies within goodies!) CraftyDeb picked up on my love of sour candy Cheesy

This amazing reusable shopping bag! It's really funny because my 12 Days of Christmas Swap partner made me a pouch from this exact fabric Cheesy I forgot to get a shot of the lining but it's really cool fabric too - You can kind of see a bit of it on the left handle. I can never have enough fabric shopping bags, I use them for EVERYTHING. I was even using one as a lunch bag until tonight Wink

She also made me a set of four quilted placemats that match my dining room accessories (I don't have a dining room at the moment, but when I did it was these colors, and so all my dining room stuff is as well - We are hoping to move soon and have a real dining room Wink) I love the fabric on the back too and had to show it off.

Each one is slightly different, here's another one

These are apparently the project that she thought I wouldn't like her first two attempts at - I'm sure I would have, but the third attempt is perfect Grin

THEN... (Yes, there's more!)

Sprinkles and toppings for cupcakes (She thought, and I agree, that the ice cream toppings would make awesome cupcake toppings!) I had to keep from eating the Nestle ones right out of the bottle (it's been a long day... Wink) AND more sour candies! I don't remember what I put in my questionnaire, but those sour neon gummy worms are my absolute favorite! The skittles are quite good too Smiley

CraftyDeb also crocheted a dishcloth (that I'm going to have a hard time using because it's so nice!) and two pot holders and a hot pad (or three pot holders/hot pads... Huh Smiley)

This picture is embarassing. I didn't realize how dirty my oven was until I had a camera flash reflecting on all the water spots! These two embroidered dish towels are amazing! She almost kept them, and I understand why Smiley But, I'm glad they made it to me because they area awesome Smiley Our dishes are red and black and white, and I love cupcakes, and I commented about how it's hard to find red, black, and white cupcake stuff, and so she made me some! Cheesy When we move I want to do 50s diner/cupcakes in the kitchen, and so these will be perfect!

Last but not least, CraftyDeb sent me a Japanese newspaper (I love languages!), and some cat treat coupons which I thought was incredibly sweet and thoughtful! The other item is the card she send which was too cute not to photograph!

PHEW! I was WAY spoiled! CraftyDeb, you are amazing, thanks SO MUCH for all the amazing goodies!

I received from both melmakespretty and attackofthequacks today! Both cards are wonderful!!! Cheesy Both photos are slightly blurry, as my camera's macro mode isn't the greatest, so if either of you have better photos, feel free to share!

First, this beautiful flower card from melmakespretty. It is (I believe) felt, and hand-embroidered and completely my colors Cheesy I am impressed with the colors of felt - I can usually only find garish felt colors - all the pretty shades of pink and purple are so nice! I forgot to take a picture of the back, but there's a heart on the back too.

It didn't come with a name, but the FH has decided it is called "flower and heart" ... one of us might be slightly more creative than the other Wink

The second wonderful card is from attackofthequacks. It is also felt with hand-drawn accents and a button for the cherry. This one is appropriately titled "I love cupcakes". Attackofthequacks stalked me a bit and discovered my love of cupcakes obviously Wink It's super cute and I love the little button, it looks so yummy!

It's kind of funny because the card I made for lemadrid was a cupcake card too! Unfortunately, I don't have a picture and I don't know what happened to her, so I don't know if it will be posted, but I think it's funny all the same.

Another funny coincidence in this swap is that melmakespretty told me AFTER she received her card that her son has a stuffed lion named "Roar" that he sleeps with.

I'm loving all these great cards everyone! And thanks to my awesome partners! Grin

Here are the necklaces.  I love the pic of them together -- so colorful!


That's awesome! I never took the time to research what (most) all the mods looked like, and now I can be lazy and I don't have to! Wink

Real question, I'm posting this here because it didn't seem worthy of its own thread - but please move it if it belongs somewhere else!... when is the bottom image going to be made into a shirt? I realize all the little craft-supply people are on other shirts, but I like the jumble of characters!

And just for fun...

And to keep my post somewhat on topic, I've got my three items figure out and supplies purchased for all, just got to assemble and then decide on extra goodies to add Wink
