OK please forgive me for taking so long to post these pics.... We received on Saturday from Superhooker.
She sent my oldest son this wonderful artist sketchbook set. It is made out of denim and lined with a cool green wool felt. It is pretty hard to find cool items to craft for teenagers but she nailed it on the head with this he loves it. Thanks again Superhooker! Cheesy

Sorry it took so long to post these pics.... Christmas has definitely kicked my butt this year LOL. I received two wonderful packages... first from thanate. She made me some amazing altered frames!

This is my favorite.... She hand painted on the front and down the sides.

This frame was stamped with one of my favorite sayings....Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away

This frame was altered with stamps

And she also included this adorable little owl pendant ( I just love owls!)

Thanks Thanate, I cant wait to print my Christmas pics and place them in my new frames!

Now on to package #2 from Cocorific. She made me this beautiful embroidered sleep mask. It is a deep purple ( my absolute favorite color!!) on the front with a delicate embroidered flower, so pretty! and the inside lining is a very soft silk in a lighter purple. It had a very comfy elastic band and works great! I wish the weather here in NY was better because the lighting in my house on gloomy days is horrible. These pictures do not do it justice. I will have to post again when the sun comes out so you can see the beautiful detail that was hand sewn better.

The back

The close up of stitches ( If you have a better pic please post it Cocrific) this pic does not do it justice!

Thanks so much Cocorific! I love, love, love it!

We also received from CJKJ this weekend! She had made us a great beanbag set for Tyler in the last round (cows3). Now she made one just for Sean in his favorite SpongeBob material!!! She also made us some extra drawstring bags in different sizes for their action figures. The shark ones are for Sean ( he loves sharks) and the emergency vehicle ones are for Tyler. Now when we go to the store or grandma's house they can pack up their action guys in their new bags and I don't have to worry about little men falling out of pockets LOL! Thanks CJKJ these are perfect!!!!

Get ready to pick your jaw up off the floor!!! We received from Zelda Suicide!!! Not one, not two but three AWESOME!!! hats. How cool are these hats!!! The black and red cap is for the newly turned teenager. The shark hat (my personal favorite) is for the middle guy and the adorable monster hat is for the little guy. Things have been so crazy here with all the holiday bustle, so I apologise for not having an action shot of the kids with their hats on.... I promise to add it to this post when they all get home from school later this afternoon. The hats fit them perfectly and look so much cuter on than my pictures here show. Thank you soooooooo much!!!!!!!! We love them!!!!!

We received a wonderful package from Patty-O-furniture!!! She made my boys two very cool I-Spy bags, a rocketship and a UFO (look at the detail stitching on them). She also included lots of extra goodies Shocked Some felt pizza for my niece or I guess I should say it was gonna be for my niece but the boys don't seem to want to part with it. It has reversible cheese! How cool is that? Pepperoni on one side and olive, pepper, and mushroom on the other. She also made my niece 2 adorable barrettes. The tinkerbelle one is just too cute! and the little bow with the gem ( in her favorite color purple) is very girly and sweet. And last but not least, also included in our package were 2 snowflake shaped crayons and holiday trinkets. Thanks for spoiling us!!! We love everything! Now for the pics!!!!

Hi All! I thought I would share some pictures of the goodies I sent to Ezri_B

Her boys like Mario so I decided to try and make some scarves (like the one on her wist). They are made out of fleece, nice and soft. For some reason in the pics the light blue fabric looks like it has sparkles in it but it does not.

She also had a belt buckle on her wist. It was an old Nintendo game controller that had been transformed into a belt buckle. So I tracked down an old remote and drilled some holes into the back of it and then added some leather straps and velcro and Voila!

And finally what I had claimed her for... A surprise for her boys. I made a Nintendo DS game cartridge holder. I measured the game slots by eye so it came out a little wonky.. nest time I will use the tapemeasure LOL

I hope she liked everything!
