So I've been away from Craftster for a while and because I'm so happy to be back I decided to organise one of my favorite swaps I did here.  Cheesy

Spring and summer are here again; the perfect time to swap friendship bracelets! Do you remember the days when being friends meant giving bracelets you put all of your blood, sweat, and tears into? The embroidery floss and hemp bracelets would stay on your wrists for months or years to remind you of that best friend ever you left back at camp. Now is the time to regain that nostalgia by joining this swap.

You'll have two partners and make an awesome bracelet for each of them. Please read your partners profile carefully to check for colour preferences.
The bracelets should be made with embroidery floss (dmc) or thread of similar quality. As friendship bracelets are worn day and night they have to be confortable, so please no plastic or metal..

I received some awesome gifts the last few days:

This so well made wallet from Avesthel

Can you believe she just saw something in my Etsy favorites copied it without a pattern? Nice work!
And closed:

Thank you!  Cheesy

And  phnxreign99 crocheted me this wonderful shawl:

(sorry for the cat..)
And detail:

It's beautiful, soft and I've been wearing it all the time; thank you!

And today - yes I got spoiled this week! - there was this really nice recon bag in the mail from zadok;

And it was stuffed with extras...

Yarn, a pattern for kids cloths, kids creativity kit, learning cards, stickers and a notebook (cool, because it's different size then we have here). Oh and thanks for your birthday wish in Hiragana; do you speak Japanese well?
Thank you; I love it all!

And my new set together  Cheesy:

I'm sorry TroubleT for being a late sender myself!  Undecided

Nice packages! Love the fabric leaves and the red panda painting  Cheesy It's good to see all LV's are finding their way home. Unfortunately Giles didn't want to leave, got his box damaged so got sent back to me today  Undecided He's on it's way again with a new address label; hope he arrives in FL soon now   Shocked

In my package, phoenixfiredesigns sent me some awesome shells from the FL beach and I wanted to give them a nice spot in our appartment. So I ordered some tillandsias online and made a Florida style terrarium; I think it looks really nice  Wink

And Ihaka made it back to the Netherlands as well!
He arrived in a huge box full of nice souvenirs, cards and sweets from Florida!  Cheesy

He was in his sleeping back that Sam made in the previous swap and he brought a Christmas stocking with his name on it.

A beautiful and huge photo album with pictures that are marked so I can find the locations on the map (brilliant idea!).

Ihaka having a look at some of the pages  Cheesy

Cute souvenirs from the sunken gardens and a pair of Valentine socks

A beautifully made altered tin shrine that phoenixfiredesigns made for me and souvenirs from Disney world. My son has worn the button on his cloths all day  Wink

A nice halloween gift (that I'll safe for my son for a nice moment) and souvenirs from the Dali museum; lovely!

A beautiful picture that she took herself (PFD, you should consider working for a postcard company!), Disney stickers and a veggie bracelet, how clever!  Cheesy

Very pretty shells (wow, they're very different from what we find on our beaches!) and Christmas decorations that of course will get a nice place in or around our tree coming season.

Thank you phoenixfiredesigns for spoiling me and for being a fantastic swap partner and friend!  Cheesy

I received the best scarf ever in the mail today from mama24boyz! It's green (my favorite colour), soft, warm and looks fabulous;

I can wrap it around my neck twice for the cold when I go outside and wrap it only once for the "necklace" look.

Thank you so much mama24boyz!  Cheesy

I received some pretty shawl pins from Avesthel today! (I got two, because we're doing a personal swap on the side  Wink) Aren't they pretty?! I'll have to make a nice shawl now to wear them properly  Roll Eyes

And in the mail was also this wonderful swap set from Koalascout! With my swap addiction this is exactly what I can use  Cheesy Swap labels, address stickers in different sizes and a pen all wrapped in a pretty tin; yay!

Thank you Avesthel & Koalascout for these great packages!

I woke up in a white landscape this morning!

But riding a bike was not such a good idea...better walk!

99 photos have been ordered and shipped already and another batch are uploading now. Got my photo album last weekend so once the pics start arriving, I can start loading them in! We still plan to try to get a few places before the end of the month so any of those shots, I'll print up locally at Wal-Mart.

It's crazy to think this round is almost over!

Wow that's a lot!
But I think I'll have a lot of them too. I found the photo album on my recent trip to the city of Utrecht and I'll be working on it the coming weekends.
I just realize I haven't posted pictures of that last trip here yet (they are on my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/GilesInTheNetherlands)...

(the main canal with the Dom church)

And Giles has become an experienced train traveller  Wink

It's crazy indeed that it's almost over. Too bad he can't stay two weeks longer for my birthday  Roll Eyes
